That church is always looking to recruit kids. I have never understood it. How much could the kids really be putting in the collection plate?

Something has always seemed odd about that.

They have those free carnivals for kids a couple of times a year.

I've heard stories about that preacher, Thomas Manbeck being a pedofile. They are very weird, even if you move they will try to find you.

Yes, Manbeck! Was trying to remember his name. I've had a few run-ins with him myself. From going to his church once when it was on E wabash to having to get in his face outside Regional hospital for attempting to proselytize to my child after asking him more than one to stop. I usually do not stoop to this level but I have to say, in my opinion, he's a fucking lunatic. If you care for your family and children, keep your distance. He's a headline waiting to happen.

Thats a good church to get your kids involved with, They are not trying to seduce your kids, just trying to show them the truth in the Bible. They are not worried about the collection plate either. All the above comments are nothing but trash. Westboro Baptist Church didn't pickett them! No one gets in Pastor Manbeck's face either. Stop the lies and slander, you could be prosecuted!

I can't stand that self rightous preacher. He came to my house three saturdays in a row a few years back. He invited himself into my interior front porch even though the main door to my house was open two of the times. He chose to bypass knocking or ringing the door bell. I met him at the threshold, and asked him to leave (I knew who he was from two previous community "run ins" in which I was less than impressed by his attitude and manners). He stood in the door way continuing to rant about his religion and church even after I told him I was a different religion and not interested. I finally shut the door and locked it. He continued to talk through the door until I threatened to call the police. The final time he had another man with him. My door was shut (after 2 saturdays in a row, I was expecting him). He walked in...again. I never opened the door, and told him to leave. They both started talking through the door about my salvation. I told them if they stepped foot on my property again they would be going to jail. They never came back. I guess my prayers were answered.

First your facts are wrong, The story reads the molestation took place at the guys apartment, not the church as you say. Second the guy was found not guilty since the girl recanted here story. Get your facts right before you start running someone in the gutter!

Were you there? I believe his story says he walked into his walk in front porch not his house. Sounds like several people have similar stories.

Are you saying that the lack of a pickett by Westboro Baptist Church is a stamp of approval for this church? Does this mean you agree with their cause? Is your comment about nobdy getting in the Pastor's face supposed to insinuate that he is some sort of a tough guy or am I losing the context of the statement due to the fact that it is typed and not spoken? Also, people telling their personal accounts of their interactions with the church, it's leader, or it's congregation is free speech. They have a right to both tell their stories from their perspective and offer their opinions. However, I in NO WAY support any of the comments accusing the church, it's leader, or it's congregation of any type of sexual misconduct involving anybody especially minors, and I CAN NOT believe anybody would openly make those types of statements about anybody without facts to back it up. There are other forums online (mainly church community forums) which discuss the aggressive nature in which this church approaches finding new members (adult and their children). I personally would write that off to an enthusiastic congregation that believes it is their duty and responsibility to SAVE everyone even if many people find it to be annoying.

How many times have the police been involved in allegations at the church? My guess is more than anyone would expect.

I said that allelagations about the church and this is only one of many. The man work for the church and met the victims at the church. There have been two other incidences since then involving this church and every time pastor Manbeck testified to the good nature of those perps. They should at least do some checking into peoples backgrounds if they want to keep recruiting children. They come to my daughters every saturday to try and recruit my grandchildren my son-in-law told Thomas Manbeck they will call the police if he comes back.
