Two Texas newspapers are out with an investigation into the Southern Baptist church that reveals a long pattern of sexual abuse by church leaders, workers, and volunteers.

The San Antonio Express-News and the Houston Chronicle reported Sunday that their six-month joint investigation found that numerous victims were shunned by their churches. About 200 were convicted or accepted plea deals, with many cases still pending. Some registered sex offenders returned to the pulpit. "Some were urged to forgive their abusers or to get abortions".

Moore also wrote about the revelations on his blog, calling them "alarming and scandalous", and saying, "no church should be frustrated by the Houston Chronicle's reporting, but should thank God for it".

SBC President J.D. Greear - who was elected to his position last summer - took to Twitter saying the church should repent, and he vowed to expend whatever resources necessary to stop the "predators in our midst".
