If this story had involved someone who was not a "Christian", Estes wouldn't have whined about it at all.

Estes, did you cancel your subscription yet?

Frank Lewis isn't even qualified to write for a high school paper...and The Daily Times is a joke! I wouldn't line a bird cage with it! The owners need someone to run that paper like it used to be!

It doesn't matter if he went to the church all his life or what, he shouldnt have been around kids. He is a sick human being. They never stop. They are always perverts. They need shot.

The story is news, not gossip, because a crime was committed. Frank's not my favorite, either, but this story is news.

Wow, I have terrible gas tonight. I hope there's not a stomach bug going around.
Anyway, this story is definitely news. Everyone should know about this guy. There are more that need outed im sure. Maybe that should be a thread. "Freaks that stalk little girls."

FYI, that girl is 17 and plenty old enough to make choices and know right from wrong. She was just as guilty as he was, and not having enough sense not to break up a marriage. My grandparents were 10 years apart and she was 15 when they got married, and it was perfectly acceptable then.

I have read your many posts on "what's New with Wade Bales". You still do not have a clue. You insist that we blame his victims. Why is it so important to you ? Would you feel better if we locked her up too? She is being tried right now through people's opion like yours and still came forward. Good for her. Maybe with girls brave enough to come forward will stop this happening to someone else. Again with your grandparents story. Again we do not care how your grandparents did it. "acceptable back then" is a very key statement. Also I doubt that your grandpa was married while he hit on your grandma at 15 hrs old!!!!!

17 is still under age. He was the adult in the situation. HE was the one that was married. 17 year olds are too naive to realize when an adult is taking advantage of them. He should have it cut off and then never be allowed out in public around other children again.

Again blaming the GUILTY victims. I wish I was speechless. Wade Is already smug enough. People's attitudes like this only makes him more so. He needs to be accountable for himself. No punishment means more GUILTY victims.

the scandal is that this involves a "christian" family.

thats is what Estes is really griping about. he knows this family too.

had it been anyone else's family, you'd think he would've cancelled his newspaper subscription? WHATEVER!

Was that a shotgun wedding, by chance?

Most girls around here have screwed more men then most 30 year old men around here. If this girl wasnt from a well known family it wouldn't be in the news . How old was the man in this , no one has said. hell I'm 22 and I would have done her She's hot as hell. She wanted it she knowed he was married. I think he's the victim in all this , these young so called lady's know what they are doing . they know how weak we men are. She just pissed because after he got that cherry she didn't get what she wanted so she told. I for one feel sorry for this poor guy. I think he should see a lawer and try to sue her and her family and get some of that money they save by working all those illegal Mexicans. I'll pray for him and his family the hell with her and her family
