Yes, the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has discussed sexual predators in its churches. In 2021, member churches voted to investigate sexual abuse within the SBC, and in May 2022, the SBC released a list of hundreds of accused abusers. The list included pastors and other church-affiliated personnel, as well as Baptist ministers who are not affiliated with the SBC. The entries included information such as admissions, guilty pleas, convictions, and inclusion on sex offender registries. In 2022, Southern Baptist leaders released a previously secret list of accused sexual abusers.
