i know this man very well i grew up with his daughters and he has been around me my whole life. i believe the devil crept in and i believe he fell. he should pay for what he did but you people should not judge him to hard. none of you are perfect and all of u have done something that you guys regret. we all fall we all do things we shouldnt and sometimes when u get weak somewhere in your life the devil knows and will get to you. pastor or not he is human and will fall. who are we to point judgement and critisize? we should join in prayer and pray for him and his family, that is if u r a true christian, if god can forgive why cant you? he is going through enough hell with his family and his punishment, why does he have to with everyone else?
If you will notice I was responding to another poster who stated that he was a "great pastor". Great pastors do not have sex with underage children. It isn't necessary for me to forgive this man, he hasn't done anything for me to forgive him for. Please also notice that my very first comments were that I was praying not only for him and his victim but that others should as well.

The "pastor" is a creep who abused his position of authority. Don't blame the victim and this has nothing to do with "forgiveness." It's only his victims that can consider forgiving him. When this story broke originally last fall, this girl was seeing this "pastor" for counseling due to the break up of her family by divorce. Don't think for a nanosecond that can even be construed as "consent." The comments on this thread are quite disturbing--who would defend this creep?

I thought the snake was behind the pulpit, of course it sounds like he's been passing himself/it around. That Mt.Vernon church (that mentored Mr. Monk) is like Peyton Place,Stepford (Wives), and Deliverance all in one big show.
