A Detroit Catholic school official charged in 2014 with child sex crimes continues to win delay after delay after delay. For the safety of kids, the healing of victims and the health of the church and its schools, we urge judges and prosecutors to speed up this case.

KY--Victims blast new Southern Baptist national president

For immediate release: Wednesday, June 15, 2016

We’re disappointed that the Southern Baptist Convention just elected Bellevue Baptist pastor Steve Gaines as president. He covered up abuse by minister Paul Williams for at least six months.
