Shrouded in Secrecy
For nearly two centuries, the SBC has remained the largest Protestant denomination in America, operating nearly 50,000 Southern Baptist churches nationwide. The leaders provide spiritual ministry, guidance, and leadership to nearly 15 million Southern Baptists.
In 1845, the Southern Baptist Convention formed a denomination from the Baptists who settled in Colonial America in the early 17th century over a conflict involving slavery with the Northern Baptists. At that time, the Northern Baptists forbid missionaries to own slaves.
According to the Pew Research Center, more than 5% of all adults in the United States were recognized members of the Southern Baptist Convention in 2014. Since then, the number has decreased.
In 2018, the #The MeToo Movement put pressure on the Southern Baptist Convention concerning domestic violence and sexual misconduct allegations among churchgoers.
During its annual national meeting, the Southern Baptist convention struggled with an onslaught of accusations involving multiple sexual misconduct cases. As a result, about two dozen people protested across the street during the two-day convention calling for creating a database that identified pastors and other religious leaders accused of sexual misconduct.
Convention delegates adopted numerous resolutions condemning any inappropriate sexual behavior by Southern Baptist ministers and called on preventing “all forms of abuse” by encouraging sexually assaulted survivors to contact civil authorities for support and protection.
In a recent blog post, Southern Baptist theological seminary President Reverend Albert Mohler stated, “The avalanche of sexual misconduct that has come to light in recent weeks is almost too much to bear.”
