Just last week, Boz Tchividjian, a prominent Liberty University law professor and the grandson of Billy Graham, stood before a roomful of journalists and declared that Evangelical missions are a “magnet” for sexual abusers and that Evangelicals “are worse” than the Catholic Church at handling the problem.
Speaking to the annual gathering of the Religion Newswriters Association (RNA) in Austin, Texas, Tchividjian said that Evangelicals have “sacrificed the souls” of innocent children, and of known data from abuse cases, a shocking 25 percent are repeat cases, he claimed.
Tchividjian is also the executive director of an organization called Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment (GRACE), which works on combating abuse in the Evangelical community.
Last summer, GRACE spearheaded an online petition condemning the “silence” and “inattention” to sex abuse in Evangelical organizations, especially its missions.
