It seems that this has been a long time coming for CJ Mahaney and the Board of Sovereign Grace Ministries. The Washington Post is reporting that three different victims are suing SGM for their mishandling and concealment of sex abuse that occurred within their churches. Over a half-dozen defendants are named in the case, but neither SGM nor any of the defendants made any comment when contacted concerning the case being brought against them.
While this is not the first time sex abuse cases have been brought to light concerning SGM , it is the first time that a lawsuit has been filed against SGM for failing to report the crimes.
