You have smypathy for the accused, any sympathy for the alleged victim? This would have taken a lot of courage on her part. This is not a walk thru the park. No one accuses someone just for fun.

I was in Temple church for years before i moved out of the area, my older kids went to school there many years ago.And the lord saved me there. .what we need to do is get down knees on our, and pray;;;;;;;;; FOR ALL THAT IS INVOLVED, ALL THE FAMILYS,that will be touched by this and the lives that will be changed, no matter what the outcome,THE DEVIL HAS WICKED WAYS TO GET PEOPLE. AND AS WE LOOK AROUND US NOW, with all of the troubled lives,let the courts take care of this .and let us PRAY FOR ALL THE LIVES THIS WILL TOUCH.and i can say that i have not live a perfect life since i was saved, and this sure has brought tears to my eyes.

This man is getting what he deserves! He has made some peoples lives miserable for a long time. He needs to be locked up from now own so that his family and victims can finally have some peace.

I still am shocked. We had family that went to church there for years and their kids attended the school. They really respected him and liked him then. I wonder what they would think now? Wonder what the kids(now adults) think? The bible tells us that things done in the dark will be brought to light. Whatever the light shines on here I pray for those who are innocent and their lives will be changed forever.

I feel sad for his family and the people who attended his church or had children in the school. This may mean that the teachers in the school will no longer have jobs and can you imagine how it will impact the school children and all those who put their trust and respect in their pastor. I guess the only people who for sure know what happened are the accused and the victim.

I find this very hard to believe. Knowing him and his family, I also know how people slander others. Let it come out in court, but you know what sad is if this is all a bunch of lies, the innocent will always be remembered by this article in the paper. Feel sorry for the victim someone stated above, if its true, but theres too much being stated by others and doubts that are already surfacing by some. Innocent till PROVEN Guilty, should apply unless crimes are witnessed at the time of the event, its he said, she said and IF he is guilty then he deserves punishment, but what if hes not, what then?? This accuser will fade into the dark...think about that....

Thank God for still being in control he knows it all. Alot of people are doing things like this and trying to hide behind God. I pray that others that have been victims would come fourth and help stop this sin

Some people do accuse just for fun. Some more than others when they are mad at the accused and their parents. What happen to innocent until proven guilty???

It a shame that you made this statement. If you have some proof you would be held to silence due to being a witness or accuser.
