Monday, November 28th 2016. That date will go down in Baptist history as the beginning of the end. Not of the end of baptists; but something more tragic, and much more sinister. It’s the end of women being safe on Liberty University’s campus.
It was on Monday that Liberty University gave the middle finger to all victims of sexual abuse and sexual assault and told “whoever has ears to hear” that THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT THE SAFETY OF WOMEN ON CAMPUS.
On Monday, Liberty University and Jerry Falwell, Jr., joyfully welcomed Ian McCaw as its new Athletic Director.
Falwell, Jr. said of McCaw, “He’s a Godly man of excellent character and I could not be more excited about this announcement!”
Just in case you don’t know Mr. McCaw, let me catch you up to speed.
He was up until recently the Athletic Director for Baylor University. Yes, the Baylor that bears the same Baptist support as Liberty. And yes, it’s the same Baylor who fired its President, Ken Starr; Head Football Coach, Art Briles, and depending on which media outlet you believe, the aforementioned Athletic Director, Ian McCaw.
So why did this “Godly man of excellent character” leave Baylor?
Here are the football totals.
While McCaw was AD, Baylor football went from averaging 3 wins a season, to 9 wins a year. This is what Liberty wants everyone to focus.
But these are the human totals of a McCaw administration.
Reporter Jake New of Inside Higher Ed reported on Tuesday:
“McCaw resigned as athletics director at Baylor in May. His resignation came days after Baylor’s Board of Regents fired the university’s head football coach and forced out its president following allegations that the world’s largest Baptist university mishandled — and sought to suppress public discourse about — reports of sexual assaults committed by its football players and other students.
Baylor officials said earlier this month that, in total, 17 women reported 19 sexual or physical assaults involving football players since 2011, and that four of the reports involved gang rapes.”
Tragically it gets worse…
New’s report went on to say, and folks this is the crux of the issue…
“Baylor said McCaw was told about at least one of those gang rapes, which involved five football players, but he did not report the allegations to the university’s judicial affairs office or anyone else outside the athletic department, as required by federal law.”
So now you know the truth about Ian McCaw. Well, at least as much as we know for now. Pending litigation and the unknown number of silenced victims will probably prevent us from ever knowing the TRUE number of victims. But this is how they operate.
This is the organizational strategy of the Baptist Convention, its Churches and now we can see, it’s Colleges and Universities. They manipulate, they silence and they cover-up anything having to do with sexual abuse and sexual assaults within its walls or by those in power.
I know this to be true because they tried to silence my voice also.
Mark my words, starting on Monday, you will begin to see an increase of sexual abuses and assaults and the ensuing organizational coverup of them that Baptist have become so adept. Or so they believe. Lives will be ruined if not worse. And certainly souls will be tarnished, if not lost.
Monday, November 28th 2016. The day where mothers and fathers can no longer send a daughter to Liberty University with the belief she will be safe.
Welcome to the pursuit of FBS football Liberty. How pathetic that you traded your soul for it.
As a dear friend said to me recently…
“Sadly, None of this resembles Jesus.”

the catholic church sold out i to football and other sports generations ago.. it also sold out to over 100,000 victims of sexual assault by priests and continues to do so to this day by trying to stop reform to rapist friendly child sex abuse statutes of limitations billS that would hold them accountable for past present and future rapes… last year it was published that Notre Dame Catholic college was restoring their football stadium for a cost of 400 MILLION dollars.. it was also disclosed that Notre Dames tuition is so high that the majority of students get US GOVERNMENT financial aid…… so compliments of the US governement Notre dame is ripping off everyone for it’s famous football team….. its a SCAM as is everything around college and professional sports especially where catholics are involved… they appear to know no other way but the SCAM way.. (satan is a liar and a thief)?

Unfortunately, covering up sexual abuse and assaults is all too common among most religious organizations and among many families. Individuals in such families prefer to remain in denial to protect the family or organization’s name. They minimize the pain and needs of the victims. For anyone reading this who is a victim of past or current abuse, we recommend you read Pam’s new book, We Survived Sexual Abuse! You Can Too! Personal Stories of Sexual Abuse Survivors with Information about Sexual Abuse Prevention, Effects, and Recovery. Through applying the knowledge and wisdom shared in this book, anyone can find HOPE and RECOVERY.
