Social Security Disability Benefits

For builders who rely on ladders and other platforms, falling from height can be very dangerous. Strained muscles: Common workplace injury for those who regularly lift heavy items. Strained...

Sexual Abuse By a Southern Baptist Church Member

Southern Baptist Church

Like the Catholic Church, the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has disclosed that, for years, pastors and other church leaders have committed horrible abuses against church members. The SBC and local Baptist churches have covered up these abuses. They’ve protected the abusers while doing nothing for the victims. A bombshell report released by the SBC Executive Committee states that the SBC’s “main concern was avoiding potential liability for the SBC.” The SBC also revealed a 205-page document listing various details about hundreds of abuse cases that occurred throughout the country. BACKGROUND For decades, abuse victims and other concerned individuals contacted the SBC to report child...
