Once again the Catholic church made world news when a 2,500 page independent French report came out estimating that 330,000 victims were subjected to abuse by 3,000 Catholic priests and an "unknown number of other people involved in the church." The abuse and cover ups spanned 70 years. The vast majority of cases cannot be criminally investigated because of statutes of limitations. This damning report came out the same day the Southern Baptist Convention held a vote to open legally protected documents to investigators into decades of abuse cover ups. There is a spiritual reckoning that is happening in the largest and third largest Christian denominations in the world. In this episode we talk about how we got here and what we can do about the culture of demanding loyalty to denominational leaders.
