Real men don't buy girls

We have seen too many reports of Baptist pastors who apparently don’t understand this basic truth: "Real men don’t buy girls.” Just a few days ago, on February 21st, a 54-year-old pastor at the First Baptist Church in Everett, Washington, was charged with commercial sexual abuse of a minor. But of course, he’s merely the most recent one to make the news. 

Maybe Baptist seminaries need to start teaching this truth to their students: “Real men don’t buy girls.” Or maybe evangelicals’ “Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood” could address it? (Yes, such an organization really exists.)
