Now, there's a man of the cloth for you. He should have to pay back every penny and then go to prison.

I agree he should have to pay and go to prison. May God have mercy on his soul.

Does not surprise me. Just because a person is a "preacher" does not mean that they are a good person. It just means that we are supposed to think they are and that they would never commit terrible crimes. I have known several preachers and deacons who are like this.

Yes this is a pastor who made a big mistake in his life, and will have to face God on judgement day for himself, but we all fall short of the glory of God, no one is perfect not even me, just because he is "Baptist" doesn't mean anything, it could have been any kind of person for that matter, but we are all sinners in a sinful world, but that doesn't mean that we should still sin and do wrong things, we should try to make them better and not fall into sin, I am praying for this man and for his family, although he is a pastor, yes it is going to affect everyone, but don't let a person that is sinful get you down about knowing God himself, God is a perfect God, who never does wrong, as long as you know Jesus Christ died on the cross for you and saved you and you worship Him and you have a full commitment to Him and asked Him into your heart is when you are going to heaven, although your pastor may be your example, don't worship your pastor!

Amen to that. They are human just like everyone else. Not Perfect by a long shot.

Well it makes you wonder what the level of moral instruction in that community was. Did he contaminate the minds of the young with flawed interpretations? How is it that none of his fellows in Christ recognized his moral corruption?

"It could have happened to any of us..." Do you often attempt to abduct and rape waitresses??

It makes you wonder how many pastors out there are like that.
