Evangelicals Even Worse In Sexual Abuse Scandal

It's something many Catholic apologists have said for years, it is refreshing to hear it coming from the "Evangelical" side now as well.  A grandson of the Rev. Billy Graham has come forward...
While comparing evangelicals to Catholics on abuse response, ”I think we are worse,” he said at the Religion Newswriters Association conference, saying too many evangelicals had “sacrificed the souls” of young victims.
He doesn't cite statistics here - and I'm sure many "Evangelicals" would like to see his statistics too, but he's not just someone out in left-field in expressing his opinion.  Boz Tchividjian, a Liberty University law professor, is also the executive director of Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment (GRACE), which has investigated child sex abuse allegations.  It's not only refreshing to see an "Evangelical" admitting to this - but also working to do something about it.
