An Associated Press release, reprinted on the Huffington Post here, is not being well received in the court of public opinion. The article Sovereign Grace Ministries Uses First Amendment As Defense In Sex Abuse Case outlines the possibility that SGM will use this defense to skate around the allegations of the covering up of child sex abuse which includes making small children forgive their molesters.
What's the bottom line. This one line says it all.
" With some limited exceptions, most courts haven't been receptive to the argument."
Ya think? Dee's opinion? I want to be in court the day they try this one. I will be thrown out of court for laughing hysterically. CJ Mahaney: Chief Apostle of the Freedom of Speech? ROFL!
Take a look at the comments that are rolling in. This possible defense by SGM is giving Christians a collective black eye. And SBTS wants to get in bed with these guys? What's up with that? Shame on them!
