"Mod blogger Nomad frames the problem as one of how to protect the church. I choose to frame the problem as one of how to protect the children."

I am involved with an organization working to stop the ongoing abuse of Christian missionary children (MKs) in Christian mission schools. Your contrast here describes precisely the obstacle we face in dealing with mission agencies and denominational mission boards. We want guidelines in place to protect the children in these schools, and the survivors who are struggling with the effects; they want ways to keep this under cover, so as not to "hinder the work of the Gospel".

(I can provide links, etc., if you are interested.)
