A Southern Baptist megachurch in South Carolina says it is not responsible for actions of a former volunteer criminally accused of sexually assaulting preschool boys inside a church bathroom while security cameras rolled.

Seven families filed a lawsuit Feb. 19 blaming NewSpring Church — a 14-campus multi-site congregation launched originally as a church plant by the South Carolina Baptist Convention – for allowing Jacop Hazlett to volunteer in its daycare despite past concerns about his interactions with children at two previous large churches also affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore.
