I knew the first time i laid eyes on that guy a few years ago that he was a pervert. It was so obvious to me. How come no one else ever noticed? And he coaches my little brother's track team as well, how nice. If he touched my little brother he will burn in HELL for it.

Kentucky Girl: I can understand your fear and anger over this. Let us not forget that according to the democratic society and legal system of the US, one is innocent until proven guilty.

Let the justice system takes its course. The states attorney will gather evidence and interview witnesses. If there is substantial evidence the case will be brought forward. It is not up to us to judge him.

I did read some comments today in several of the Central Illinois news media outlets and the Church of Christ has responded to the allegations: They are all saying to pray for Andy. I understand that but the church should also be saying, pray for the victim. It is strange how one-sided religion can be.

I am from the church that Andy was a pastor from, and while I know many in this church are praying for Andy many are praying for the boy too.

In my opinion until evidence comes out one way or another both the boy and Andy are liars. It also both makes them victims as well, cause we have no prove one way or another.

In the end though I have a hard time jumping 100% around some who believe without a doubt Andy is innocent, mainly cause you can't know, and if he is it's a great injustice done to him, but if not there is a boy and family devastated by his actions.

Well, this is why i think he's guilty. I worked at the Rossville Casey's General store for a year making food on friday night. when Andy Thomas would bring young groups of boys in late on friday nights.....it was strange....the way they acted was obsene....I knew two years ago he was a pedofile....I told my mother.....he shouldn't be having sleepovers with young boys when he has no young boy....this was an every weekend thing, mind you, and any normal man has other things to be doing on Friday nights.....I don't want to judge in my heart I KNOW!

And my 21 year old brother ran track years ago, and Andy coached then...seems to me like this pedofile has had the perfect job for about ten years, youth minister and track coach. That's what our world has come to and i am praying for Andy that God will save his perverted soul from hell!!!!

P.S. innocent until proven guilty, what if he's guilty, and there is no proof? Then another pedofile will be running free again...look at jaycee dugard. If the pedofile that kidnapped her had been locked up she wouldn't have suffered for so many years....she was tortured.

Truth has a way of coming out in the long run, I don't think he will get away with it if he did do it. I know though in the long run more can get hurt, but trying to be vigilantes in justice is no better.

Though as for the Friday stuff, to be honest I have always wondered too, being at the church I know he did that, I even said it was odd, though in the end despite my concerns I have no proof.

I have refrained for a long time having any real opinion on this, mainly cause I go to that church, but I have to hope that the truth will come out one way or another.

I know it's naive, but in many ways I want neither the boy or Andy to have lied, it's a weird thing but I don't want Andy to have done this, but I don't want this kid to have lied about something, I know I can't have it both way and one of them is not telling the truth, but it's just hard to think of it that way at times.

Well, God knows the truth and I am more than happy to leave him to dish out the punishments. Thanks for the prayers. Oh, and it's not my brother accusing him, I just know he's been around him alot these past few years and he's only 13. I'm going to keep praying for the boy's family and for Andy's soul.

Kentucky girl: With your past, I wouldn't be casting stones at anyone. I will not pass judgement on anyone; it's not MY place. But since you are such an expert, what exactly does a pedofile look like? This town could certainly use your expertise!

With my past? you don't know me. And it's not your family that this man may have violated either, huh? I am done talking about it, he'll be appearing in court tomorrow and we'll see where it goes from there. I am not the judge and jury. I am just saying what I have truly believed for years. and do you know the man? by the way. No, i didn't think so....

So you're saying "And it's not your family this man may have violated either, huh?"....so did he? You said you have 2 brothers who have had contact with him. Did he ever do anything inappropriate with them? And why have no other persons come forward?
And yes I do know Andy (for over 30 years)....well enough to know the facts in this situation AND well enough to know the facts behind why the young man filed the charges. This is a very troubled young boy and you are right about one thing...he DOES need prayed for.

You know that the police have to take any and all allegations of this type seriously. Let's just say I know why the young man chose to make the allegations when he did. It was all about his timing. The truth and facts will come out.

See, I'm not afraid to put my name on this page. I should know better than to respond to such ignoant statements. This is my cousin and I KNOW that all that is being said about him is LIES!!!!
You don't know this supposed victim and his family. Do your homework before you get on a public page and defend them. I know about this family but I'm not going to lower myself, as you have, to say bad things about them. Evidently you don't read your bible. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Slander is a bad thing. I hope that you never have to go through anything like this, epecially when you know it is true.

So you are saying that Andy Thomas did not insert his penis in a 16 year old boys butt?

You are sick! Do you know for sure? I think not! Everyone should just keep their opinions to theirselves until the truth comes out. Then you'll all feel stupid for running off at the mouth. Don't you have anything better to do. Someone showed this page to me otherwise I wouldn't know what alll was being said. I'm now sorry that he did show me this page. A aman is inooicent until proven guilty.

Well Nyla, I know that everyone in town is saying he admitted to it, and he's saying he's sorry and the kid wanted to do it.

A man is inoocent until proven guilty or he admits it!

I wasn't there, and I don't claim to know what happened...but I'm betting my info is a little better then any you're getting out in Omaha Nebraska. Who's telling you all this stuff? His family?

Maybe if he didn't want people to discuss it he shouldn't have done it.

Do not send me any more comments. This is the last time I will be visiting this sick site. Mr. or Mrs. Bobcat fan - I am his cousin and I do not live in Nebraska. You should bet on something more sure.You have already got him guilty. Who are you to judge?
