Disfellowship churches which through silence foster and compound sex abuse by clergy

Christa Brown points to the applicable passage in the Baptist Faith and Message:

We should work to provide for the orphaned, the needy, the abused, the aged, the helpless, and the sick.

There can be denominational consequences, after all? That does not mean it is acceptable to fail to support the victims of abuse in your own church, or silently send abusive pastors along to other churches, does it? Or is the passage merely advisory so that continued negligence is acceptable?
