TN - Pastor named in child sex suit; SNAP responds
Today's Washington Post reports that a Tennessee pastor has been accused, in a new civil lawsuit filed in Maryland, of:
---"forcing a victim over a period of 25 years to strip 'against her will' and assaulting her, and
--- "covering up sexual abuse of minors, forcing small children to 'forgive' abusers and ostracizing families who wouldn’t hide the alleged crimes."
He's Larry Tomczak, a co-founder of the controversial Sovereign Grace Ministries, a 100-church evangelical denomination.
We fear deeply for the safety of kids in these strict, patriarchal, and secretive church groups like Sovereign Grace. We desperately hope that every single current or former Sovereign Grace member or staff will share whatever knowledge or suspicions they may have about child sex crimes or cover ups with law enforcement.
