    Beth Moore Speaks out in Solidarity with Sex Abuse Victims Following SBC Abuse Report

    Beth Moore is speaking out following the publication of an investigative article in the Houston Chronicle that revealed that some 700 people were sexually abused by leaders in the Southern Baptist Church.

    As Christian Headlines previously reported, the Houston Chronicle found that since 1998, approximately 380 SBC leaders and volunteers faced allegations of sexual misconduct. Of the 380 SBC leaders accused, 220 have been convicted, nearly 100 are still in prison and more than 100 are now registered sex offenders.

    Moore, who has opened up in the past about being a sexual abuse survivor, took to Twitter to voice her frustration with the new findings, CBN News reports.

    She wrote, “It’s monstrously common for victims to be abused again by one they thought safe to tell. 2nd wave abuse occurs when those told are either scandalized (backs off, “don’t tell me more”) or tantalized (moves in, “oh tell me more”). Both heap shame upon shame.”
