MeToo Is a Wake-Up Call for Pastors, Says Former SBC President James Merritt
The MeToo movement is a "wake-up call" for Southern Baptist pastors, said James Merritt, lead pastor of Cross Pointe Church in Duluth, Georgia, ahead of the denomination's annual meeting on Tuesday.
"The safest place an abused woman should feel she can go is her church. And the safest person she should feel like she should be able to go to is her pastor," said Merritt during a panel discussion hosted by the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, titled "Conversation on Gospel Sexuality in a #MeToo Culture."...

Advice that Moore shared came from author and evangelist Beth Moore who said parents should let their children know they are always available to pick them up at any time of night, no questions asked, if they are at a friend's house or on a trip where they are uncomfortable.‚ÄĚ
The above is from the article.
The article brings up some good points, good issues and good practical solutions. But anyone who uses Beth Moore as their moral/ethical source is simply someone who supports evangelical feminism. Mixing truth with error is simply a way to destroy God‚Äôs church; it is like opening up Pandora‚Äôs Box. Once done, it cannot be closed.
Any clergy that abuses children in any way should be dismissed and if what they did was even possibly criminal, they should be reported to the law. But to cater to feminists to accomplish a Christian goal or to further your churches' standing is simply sinful. The church is being destroyed by feminists dictating what is correct and what is not correct. The great whore is being formed!
