The tragic lessons of Penn State University are the tragic lessons of Sovereign Grace Ministries. C.J. has conducted himself like Graham B. Spanier and John Loftness has conducted himself like Joe Paterno. As Al Mohler points out, “When the facts became known, the firings of both Paterno and Spanier were inevitable and necessary. Both men had credible knowledge that young boys were being sexually abused, and neither did anything effective to stop it. Most crucially, neither man did what they should have done within minutes of hearing the first report — contact law enforcement immediately.”
The SGM Board of Directors should have followed Mohler’s advice by firing C.J. and John as a moral necessity based upon their internal investigation. They know these men are guilty of allowing sexual predation to effectively continue. They know C.J. and John purposely chose to not contact law enforcement. They don’t need a jury trial. Instead they let C.J. “transition” as President and John “resign” as Chairman while providing bogus cover stories for them. I don’t know how they sleep at night.
