I cant believe this. Kent is such a good dad and teacher. I've known him and his wife for a while and we love him and are praying for him and family.

Kent used to be my youth director at Beech Grove Baptist Church in Louisville, Tn. Im wondering what happened to this holy man to expose himself at a park where small children play. Where was the holy spirit that he was preaching about? What made him turn like that? He has disappointed all his friends and his church for this unholy event!!!!

Why couldnt he do this at home in his bedroom or bathroom or even in HIS OWN driveway. Why did he have to go to a park where little kids play and do this. The police stated that thought this would happen again so thats why they arrested him, and they might of been right!! ALl the places he has to go why a park?????

Oh, that poor, deprived man. How do you know he was deprived? I bet his wife won't be servicing him now!

I don't think needing sex at home has anything to do with exposing yourself in a park. Sounds like he was looking to attract another male.

For shame on all of you that have already judged him. He's not been proven guilty, and has maintained his innoncence all along. Thank you Angie Whaley for your Christian support. Jennifer, I wish that in those lessons you had listened to those Kent taught on forgiveness and not judging

I don't think Kent did anything. I believe this is just a big mistake. I've known him for years and never once have i even seen a glimpse of anything but good in him. Everyone finds themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time and i would like to believe that this is all that happened. Kent is a good man and everyone should know that.

I hope that everyone realizes that the charge of indecent exposure can be limited to him simply urinating. Rember that can also charge breast feeding mothers with this same crime.

THe headline is missleading. All the guy wanted is to have sex with another man. That happens all the time in Tyson Park. I wish the Christian Taliban would chill out. I also wish that men that want to engage in that behavior would go somewhere else where there are not any kids around.

I guess someone was trying to be cute, but the picture looks NOTHING like the weather guy. Don't make things any worse than they are, please. This is really no time or subject to try to be cutesy.
