Glad he didn't hate a child in the neighborhood. This is a real piece of work and should be thrown out of the church. I hope his "flock" hears about this.

I cant believe a man of god would take a living thing and torture it the way he did. I hope he is ashamed, embarrassed and remourseful. that poor little girl will remember this for the rest of her life. Shame on you "Pastor"

F.B.I Allen Brantley said,"Animal cruelty is not a harmless venting of emotion in a healthy individual; This is a warning sign". There are deep psychological issues that lead to violent crimes against people. This guy had his plan when the took the poor animal back.

This man is unworthy of the position of advising others how to live their lives. I will. I won't darken the door of his church.

I would love to be there for his trial. Too bad we don't have an animal abuse registry in Texas. We need one, can't even trust a Pastor.

He needs to be fully prosecuted. This action is the sign of a sociopath. If I went to that church, I would want to look at the financial records. Someone like this can't be trusted in any area, in my opinion. The family needs to sue for the loss of their beloved pet.
