SNAP responds to Southern Baptist abuse resolution

"The Southern Baptist Convention has passed a resolution urging people to report child sex crimes to law enforcement. Big deal.

This is a virtually worthless 'feel good' public relations move that basically protects no one. Brave action, not vague resolutions, stops crimes against kids."

That's the statement released by SNAP officials about the abuse resolution passed yesterday at the Southern Baptist Convention's annual meeting in Houston.

SNAP's statement is spot-on in my opinion.

I plan to write more about the resolution later, but for now, imagine this. Your spouse asks you to clean up the basement, and in response, you say, "I'm gonna pass a resolution for cleaner basements!" First of all, I don't imagine your spouse will be much impressed. And more importantly, that ugly, stinky basement is just going to keep getting stinkier and stinkier.
