Southern Baptist Sexual Abuse Lawsuit
About Abuse in the Southern Baptist Church
Sexual abuse occurs when there is undesired sexual behavior by one person upon another, this is also referred to as molestation. It often happens by taking advantage or using force on another. When force is of short duration or immediate, or infrequent it is called sexual assault.
In recent years there have been many sex abuse allegations in the Southern Baptist Church. Many priests have been convicted on multiple counts of child abuse, rape, sexual abuse, inappropriate sexual conduct and more. Child abuse and molestation can happen anywhere - churches, summer camps, day care facilities, schools, and other places where predators are likely to gain access to children.
People who are physically or sexually abused often show signs that should be taken seriously. Unfortunately, when people exhibit signs that something isn't right, it's often brushed off by those who should be alarmed.
SIGNS OF ABUSE
Signs of abuse can manifest in numerous ways. Many abusers convince their victims that abusive behavior is normal, making it less likely they will speak up. However, there are many indisputable signs that may indicate that abuse has occurred. They include, but are not limited to:
Disrupted sleep and frequent nightmares
May seem withdrawn or distant
Depression, fear, anxiety, and mood swings
Loss of appetite or other changes in eating habits
Cuts, bruises, abrasions, skin discoloration, and burns
Pain, bleeding, or unusual discharge from the genitals
Sudden bed wetting
Running away from home
Drug or alcohol addiction
Lawsuits are currently being filed by abuse victims across the United States. So far various religious orders have been forced to pay settlements totaling more than $3 billion. Anyone who is a survivor of sexual abuse committed by a member of the Southern Baptist church, may be eligible for significant financial compensation for pain, suffering, therapy, medical treatments, rehabilitation, and lost earnings.
