What struck me about SGMMom is that she was able to offer support to me despite the grief she had experienced in her own family.
And here is a quote from SGMMom (mom of one of the plaintiff's in the SGM lawsuit):
“For over twenty-five years, pastors in Sovereign Grace Ministries, when faced with sex abuse cases, chose a pattern of cover-up and obstruction of justice, repeatedly treating molestation as if it was only a sin or moral failing and not treating it as a crime. This pastoral negligence has compounded the trauma of the sex abuse victims and their loved ones.”
“When is the reputation of a church ever more important than the safety and well-being of children?"
"By filing this Class Action lawsuit, we are standing up for all of the victims of sex abuse cover-up within SGM. There are other victims not yet mentioned in the legal draft and for a variety of reasons have not come forward yet--we are taking a stand for them as well."
