Another sick perverted religious minister. Take him to trial then jail.

He's guilty of his sin.

"The accusers did not know each other and the incidents occurred about 20 minutes apart at two different women's stores, police said."

But he's innocent. Ha ha ha ha ha. Lock that lying freak up.

It is getting to the point that I don't trust anyone who is in the "Christian Right". Is that label now synonymous for "Sexual Deviant"? We have Ted Haggard, Mark Foley, Senator Larry Craig, now our local pastor Adam Barton, not to mention all the GOP (our conservative, family values party) officials involved in various financial scandals.

Gives me the creeps - such rampant hypocrisy.

Ease up, Grump. Let's let this play out, and I'm fairly certain the truth will come out. If he's guilty, at least they'll be serving hot meals at the pokey again by the time he'd start serving. That should make the Beacon happy all around.

If he's found innocent, more power to him. I admit I hope he's innocent. For all those who have brought shame to professions such as the ministry or the classrooms or the boardrooms, we need all the good guys we can keep in those positions.

Anyhow, Christians are taught that they'll occasionally have to take blame for things they didn't do. Consequences of which might include prison.

Grump,(chuckle) If'n you're like me, in a few years, you might also consider committing something worthy of a long incarceration. Consider: Free cable, clean sheets, hot meals (maybe), and most importantly, the best in health care. Compared to the outside streets of Akron, sounds good to an old grump like me.

So what that he passed a lie detector test? Two separate women who identified him as "the fondler" aren't wrong. He is.
Keep your hands to yourself. Why not teach THAT at your church?

It is a well known fact that sociopaths can pass polygraph tests.

When an attorney makes a statement such as 'the polygraph test shows that he was being truthful about the essential elements of the case', watch out!

truthful about the essential elements = WEASEL WORDS

One of them did it with an underage male page. So yes it was sick. It is also sick that ACLU types defend pedophiles and then later are found to be pedophiles.

The bottom line - if this minister did it - he should go to jail. You don't see conservatives ralllying around Craig. We want him to resign.
That's consistent.

Now if Barney "I love" Franks was caught foot tapping in the airport, Libs would rally around him. That is what is disgusting. These folks should be booted out - regardless of party.

Barney Frank is openly gay. He doesn't hide that fact from his constituents and they continue to elect him. He doesn't need to do any foot tapping in an airport bathroom, because he is not closeted and isn't trying to hide his lifestyle from his family.

I respect anyone who is out of the closet and votes on gay rights issues in favor of gay people. What I can't stand is closeted gay republicans who vote against gay rights and are so full of self-loathing that they have to act out their sexual fantasies in filthy men's restrooms then lie about it. That is pathetic. Give me a self-respecting gay democrat any day over a closeted self-loathing, lying gay foot-tapping republican.
