Pfff...16 in legal in every western nation except the United States of Condemnation.

Fornication is blasphemous for a christian believer let alone a pastor but this is really about the age issue which is a non issue anywhere else.

This has a bit to do with the position of responsibility problem. A pastor isn't just some dude in a teenage girls life, he's an authority figure like a teacher or parent. Even if she seduced him, it's wrong. Even if she was 18 in the US of Condemnation (as you put it), it is still wrong.
