    Southern Baptist leader shave been found to have molested over 700 victims by over 200 clergymen , who knows that could be a lot higher, this is just whom of the adults came forward so far.

    Heres an article about the convention that took place to talk about it.Looks like the Catholic church isnt the only ones with the issue.

    I'm sure you can find instance of sexual abuse from anyone in a position of power (not defending the SB's BTW).

    It seems that the most common sexual predators of children are ones that are trusted and have more access to them regardless of religion, race, sex, etc. but most are men.

    Gay sex is a sin and an abomination according to God's Word. And God is an implied party to this thread so deal with it.

    It's not "my version" of God. It's what the Bible actually says - that homosexual sex is a sin and an abomination.

    The Bible gets a lot of things WRONG and that is one of them. You would probably be an anti-gay bigot even if you weren't a religious extremist!

    Well, it didn't get homosexual sin wrong. You don't like it, submit it to prayer.

    True but religious leaders should of course practice what they preach.

    It is your version of God. Which may be the same as the version of God described in that one passage in Leviticus, but there are many versions of God described in the bible. The Christian is supposed to rely first and foremost on the teaching of Christ in the New Testament.

    Nope, it's what the Bible says. Do you need to see all the scriptures that condemn gay sex?

    Well, this kind of stuff goes on in cult like environments... where people are not allowed to question religion or authority.

    Its not just the Baptists.. Its it more prevalent in fundamentalist churches because congregants have to shut down their brains to be accepted into the community.

    Sadly, this also goes on in closed Jewish communities ..
