Protestant And Evangelical Sexual Abuse
Most child sex abuse within religious communities happens in Protestant and Evangelical churches, which are by far the largest and most well-attended churches in the United States. This includes child sex abuse within Anglican churches, Episcopal churches, Baptist churches, Methodist churches, Lutheran churches, Presbyterian churches, Pentecostal churches, and many others.
Sadly, Protestant and Evangelical leaders sometimes fail to protect children from sexual predators. Reports exist of Protestant and Evangelical leaders silencing child sex abuse victims and protecting abusers. Also, all churches are supposed to adhere to strict national standards for child protection, but often fail to do so.
