Southern Baptist Convention Insists DOJ Investigating Sex Abuse Mishandling

Less than a week after the unprecedented FBI raid of Donald Trump’s residence, the DOJ is apparently investigating the Southern Baptist Convention. The reason why the Department of Justice is investigating the largest protestant denomination in the country is unknown, but the Southern Baptist Convention is once more eager to jump on the grenade of sex abuse which is all the more suspicious.

The Southern Baptist Convention entity heads put out a coordinated statement:

The SBC Executive Committee recently became aware that the Department of Justice has initiated an investigation into the Southern Baptist Convention, and that the investigation will include multiple SBC entities.

Individually and collectively each SBC entity is resolved to fully and completely cooperate with the investigation. While we continue to grieve and lament past mistakes related to sexual abuse, current leaders across the SBC have demonstrated a firm conviction to address those issues of the past and are implementing measures to ensure they are never repeated in the future. The fact that the SBC Executive Committee recently completed a fully transparent investigation is evidence of this commitment.

We recognize our reform efforts are not finished. In fact, those efforts are continuing this very moment as the recently announced Abuse Reform Implementation Task Force begins its work and as each entity has strengthened its efforts to protect against abuse. Our commitment to cooperate with the Department of Justice is born from our demonstrated commitment to transparently address the scourge of sexual abuse.

While so many things in the world are uncertain, we can be certain that we serve a mighty God. Nothing, including this investigation, takes Him by surprise. We take comfort in that and humbly ask you be in prayer in the days and weeks ahead.

Specifically, we ask God to grant wisdom and discernment to each person dealing with the investigation.

The statement is signed by:

Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

Jason K. Allen, President, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

Bart Barber, President, SBC

Paul Chitwood, President, International Mission Board

James K. Dew, President, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary

D. Hance Dilbeck, Jr., President, Guidestone Financial Resource

Kevin Ezell, President, North American Mission Board

Adam W. Greenway, President, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

Jeff Iorg, President, Gateway Seminary

Brent Leatherwood, Acting President, Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission

Ben Mandrell, President, Lifeway Christian Resources

Willie D. McLaurin, Interim President, SBC Executive Committee

R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Sandra Wisdom-Martin, Executive Director, Woman’s Missionary Union

Virtue Signal Deception

The Southern Baptist Convention is eager to admit that this investigation is about sex abuse coverups, but this should be viewed with suspicion. After all, the DOJ does not have a reputation for caring about the sexual exploitation of children. If someone is so eager to plea guilty, is it because they are actually guilty of something else.

See, the sex abuse in the SBC is a known quantity to the normie. The racketeering is not. The Southern Baptist Convention would rather paint itself as a hive of sex abusers and sex abuser enablers and rely on cultural Christianity funding than admit to financial impropriety. The North American Mission Board is swimming in probable cause for financial impropriety. Meanwhile the SBC represents politically a conservative voting block, despite its liberal leadership. So there may be political reasons why Merrick Garland’s DOJ would target the SBC. After all, the pagan cannot be expected to recognize the distinction between a Bart Barber and a Tom Buck.

The fact that the SBC wants to continue focusing on sex abuse should be viewed with suspicion as to what they don’t want you thinking the investigation is about. What we know about the investigation comes from the investigated, not the investigators.
