Calvary Chapel Honolulu Sued Over Sexual Assaults
Calvary Chapel Honolulu, pastored by Calvary Chapel Association board member Bill Stonebreaker is being sued for allegedly not doing enough to stop a sexual predator at the church.
Because of the sexual abuse charges coming out of both the entertainment and political spheres and the social media support for the victims, I expect to see a flood of stories like this in the future.
Calvary Chapels have often covered up these cases, often with a cash payout with a non disclosure agreement (NDA) attached.
Now, with many states considering legislation to allow NDA’s to be ignored in sexual abuse cases, the lid may come off a lot of stories.
Perhaps this will lead to the CCA having as clear guidelines on child protection measures as they have on required doctrinal matters…
