Texas bill would shield churches that report sex abuse
from Baptist Press
Southern Baptist pastors and leaders have initiated a Texas bill to allow nonprofits, including churches, to disclose credible but unproven sexual abuse allegations with no fear of civil liability. Texas House Bill 4345 would protect charitable organizations and their volunteers when disclosing such information to prospective employers, even when no criminal charges have been filed against the accused.
