Wonderchild, you must have never been sexually abused. If you had you would know that a person who is sexually abused almost never tells in the beginning. Mostly its years later. His heart is as black as a cat. He may preach well but that doesn't mean he is a good man or that he practices what he preaches. A good man doesn't abuse their family and friends.

You drank the kool-aid too, didn't you?

Why don't you like him if you think he has a "kind heart". Must be some reason.

no matter what the paper says about "being held without bond". Obviously the paper doesn't tell us everything.

Everyone condemming this man and preacher should wait till both sides are stated in court and there is PROOF...word already out is this is retalitation for something else that happened. I am amazed at how quick people are to believe anything in the news. How many men and women have been wrongly convicted and after the truth comes out are proven INNOCENT, however, their life never goes back to the same as it was before. This man deserves his day in court as does this woman, but both sides needs to be heard completely....I don't believe it because for one in this day and time too much help is out there for the victims and its not like it was in the 60''s-70's where people didn't believe things like this happen. Something is fishy here and I for one hope its not true....if it is, he's already convicted, and so is his family and that is not fair.....
true or not true

No one would hold any of his family as "convicted" if it is true or not true. All anyone would have for his family either way is Sympathy. They have nothing to do with this in any way. I haven't read one thing by anyone saying that his family is guilty or in anyway involved.

In no way did I say the family was guilty, what I stated was if this is untrue his family and him have had to go to tremendous stress and pain and hurt, which is not FAIR... I have nothing but sympathy for his family either way......
practice what u preach

Why don't you practice what you preach "INNOCENT TIL TRIAL" Here is a direct quote from you.

"I don't believe it because for one in this day and time too much help is out there for the victims and its not like it was in the 60''s-70's where people didn't believe things like this happen."

Sounds to me like you don't want anyone judging Mr Preacher man but boy u sure can judge the alleged victim. I guess you are excluded from not being able to judge. PRACTICE WHAT U PREACH!

I challenge each one of you to go to the nearest mirror, look at the face you see, and tell us that you would have no problem with having your deepest, darkest, secret sin exposed for the rest of us to see. Would you be as quick to pass judgement on yourself as some of you have done to Rev. Price? Would you? How about those things you have done that if exposed would bring shame against you, would you want us to get on topix and run off at the mouth without knowing the facts as some og you have done? You should hang your hypocritical head in shame and thank God that your darkest sins habe not been exposed for all to see. Is Rev Price guilty as charged? Perhaps, but that is for the court to decide, not you and not me. So for the sake of Rev. Price and his family walk away from that mirror and God that he has chose not to expose your sins for all to see.

Again, thank God that he has chose not to expose your sins for all to see. Thankfully, he gave his son as a sacrifice for our deepest, darkest sin. Because of that sacrifice our sins have been accounted for. If you however have not received Chrisy as your saviour them you will someday give account for your sins because you will stand before him without a sacrifice and without a saviour. How will it be when that time comes? You my friend will be doomed for eternity. I strongly encourage you to give serious thought to the reality that you are only one heartbeat from standing before the creator of the universe. How will you stand.

Please my friend, and I say this with kindness, think about where you will spend eternity and let tje coury decide where Rev. Price will spend the remainder of his life on this earth, eithet ad an innocent, free man or guilty as charged.

P.S. No, I do not attend Rev. Price's church. I would have no problem doing so though but I live in another state and that would be a difficult to do.

Here is a direct quote (see above) "Would you be as quick to pass judgement on yourself as some of you have done to Rev. Price? Would you?"

NOT ONCE did you mention the ones who have passed judgment on the alleged victim. And if you look back through these comments there have been many that has said they did not believe her. Which is just flat out saying that she is a liar. You look in the mirror and realize that you too are passing judgement on her by taking the rev. defense.
You are preaching to people that they are doing wrong and yet you are doing the same thing only to the other person. Why don't you keep an open mind until trial and not pass judgement either. Practice What you Preach!

I so agree with the comment follower wrote it sounds to me like some people are still refusing to look at the whole picture. There is also a victim alot of people have pretty much said she is a lier. Everyone needs to remember who the adult was in this matter and who was the child,even at age 17, she was not a legal adult. Again I am sure if it were my child or the people that has pretty much called her a lier would not be so quick to judge her. Some people have made comments on how this will effect his family and their lives, what about how it has effected her, and her families lives, this will be a scar that only God will be able in time to help everyone heal. Think About It

I guess it is a little hard to Practice What you Preach when you have drank the Kool-Aid and can't see YOUR OWN Faults! It is okay for you to do it, just not everyone else. Maybe you should hang YOUR hypocritical head as you preached to everyone else to do.

From all of these comments, it's easy to see who went to Price's church and school; the writing and education level are less than most elementary school children! I have known the man for years and also knew another of his victims. She is dead now, but her life was ruined by this man and he deserves the harshest punishment possible from both God and man. He is truly a monster.
