In this Wednesday, June 12, 2019 file photo, J. D. Greear, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, talks about sexual abuse within the SBC on the second day of the SBC's annual meeting in Birmingham, Ala. Greear blamed the crisis on years of cover-ups, but praised a new anti-abuse curriculum being offered to all of its churches and seminaries, and he said they must do better in screening potential pastors.
