Not once a thief, always a thief. President GWB was once a drunk but now, no longer is. Applying your logic 'the warning', you'd say you have an alki running your country. People can, and do, change, so good luck to Rev Batson.

Pastor Batson is a good person. He has a good heart and sets an example for others by demonstrating that one may not be able to change the past but people who look to the future can always make a difference. Besides, the Bible says judge not lest ye be judged and I am pretty sure ye are not without sin yourself there Mr. or Mrs. Kansas

My husband and I attend Pastor Kenny's church we are very thankful we found a church that preaches sin is sin, and if you sin and don't ask for forgiveness you go to hell. I have known Kenny for several years he has always been a person that keeps guard of his spiritual life. I have never known the old Kenny and am very glad God has changed his life!!!! His is a true example that people can change and that when God gets ahold of you, you are transformed from the inside out!!! Many blessing to Pastor Kenny and his family!!!!

I would seriously think twice before using George W in defense of your argument. Not the best choice my friend. Having said that, any time a man picks himself up and tries doing something better with his life, he should be commended. Good luck in all your future endeavors Rev. I say Live and let Live!

Kenny Batson is a pastor! Wow. I remember him as the town drunk who used to beat the crap out of anyone that got in his way and his girlfriend and kid. I never really cared for the guy personally so Im glad hes getting his life straight. Nice to know people can change. I guess there is hope for everyone.

May want to check the recent police records for this so called man of God.

That kind of tells the true story
