I just want anyone who knows this man to know that I was married to this liar and deceiver 12 years ago and I know all about him and how he works!! He is most certainly not fit to be a pastor anywhere in this world!!! Only convicted of molesting an 11 year old boy certainly. He signed a plea deal to lesser charges because this child could not go through a trial, it wouldnt have been fair to him. But he also molested a cousin in his family for many years that at the time of his being outed was an adult man and he did not want people to know of him and what had been done so Mark got away with never having to pay for the innocence that he took from him. Im ashamed of Mark Hourigan and I wish that he would just crawl under a rock somewhere and rot!! A member of his family has said that he has come out of the closet now and told that he has a Partner!!!! He's a clever one!!! Take the focus off of the fact that its little boys he's attracted too. The man has married 3 different women and fathered 2 children. He's a PEDIFILE PEOPLE!!!! He's sick and he may not act on his nasty thoughts, but you better realize he's loving the fact that there are wonderful people out there fighting for his right to be around their children. I just feel sorry for anyone who is in his spell!!!!!

Your not bothering me at all with your words. The fathers of my children are Steve Flora, Ray West, and Rodney Walls. Ray and I had Megan when I was 17, I married at 19 to Steve and had my Son Adam and later had my son Aaron after the divorce of Steve and I with Rodney Walls. They are now 22, 17, and 12 and are they are my joy!! Whoever you are, your just mad because I speak the truth about Mark. It makes you sick at what he is and what he has done too. I married Steve and after 8 years he left me to marry my cousin, I married Mark who apparently used me to deceive everyone into thinking he was NORMAL, whom I left when he told me what he was, and I married Aarons father who for 5 long years made me pay dearly for the mistake of marrying a child molester. I am once again married to a wonderful man who treats me and my children with the love and respect we deserve. Sorry your such a hater of mine. You failed at your attempts to hurt me though, SORRY FOR YOU!!!! I just want people to stand up for whats right in this world and stop feeling sorry for these sick ass child molesters!!! Mark Hourigan doesnt deserve to be a Pastor. A person doesnt need to be ordained to save someone. Along with Marks sick urge to be with little boys, I believe he has some type of personality disorder. He told me everything he did and I have to live with this for the rest of my life. I cant sit back and say nothing!!!! Say what you want about me, you just know in your heart that Im right on the money about the man and you cant stand it!!!!!

Home Wrecker - Multiple marriages and children by different fathers is not ideal BUT it is a far cry from being a child molester! If he was truly contrite and had done the couseling he wouldn't even ask to be in a position that gives him access to and control over children. I agree with ott that at the very least the church is being irresponsible.It makes me wonder if these church leaders have something other than God in common.

Zombie....Thank you! HomeWrecker obviously has strong feelings for Mark Hourigan and thats just great. Im simply trying to let people who deserve to know the truth about Marks past know what I know. He certainly wont tell anyone. The news is not even aware that he molested more than one child. He got to sign a plea deal for a lesser sentence to molesting just 1 11 year old child. This child will never ever be the same. And he did molest others, just never had any charges brought against him. Many men that have been molested NEVER tell. I feel for his victims and in many ways I and my children were victims of Marks also. Have you no idea what it is like to think your married to a wonderful man of God and then after 6 months of marriage have him tell you that what he is is a lie???? Lucky for you that you dont!!!!!

Maximus is right, the only "one" time offender when it comes to the pediphile is the very young offender just starting down that road. Once started the journey continues until death or that prison detour. Surgery is the only cure that guarantees public safety and even that's been shown as falible. One bastard got a doctor to prescribe hormone thearpy under war injury pretenses. His sex drive returned and guess who he took along on that first sex trip. That's right, a child. He killed her to cover his tracks.
I say this church needs the "hell" sued out of it when this man does what he's going to do.

If these things were known by the church fathers they should have realized the negative impact upon the church and should have sought a higher counsel for this decision!
But most churches today have adopted the passive viewpoints and that's why the church has lost her standing even among string Christan believers who refuse to attach themselves to the church of tradition and worldliness! Amen

To hell with the negative impact on the church! How about the negative impact on past and future children?
You're welcome Maximus. I understand why you posted. I normally hate when people come on here and start threads to trash people but you let it be known who you are and the story with his name has already been published. I can only imagine how horrible it must have been to find out that this "man of God" was doing these things. Wasn't he already a minister once before? But now he says he has been touched by God? So when he was ministering to people before he was lying about his realtionship to God? And we are supposed to believe him now?

Your welcome Zombie. When I met this man he was a Youth Minister at a church in Lebanon. Mark became a friend, he saw that I had just had a child by a man who was in jail and I was alone with my 3 childen. He knew that I was in a bad place in my life, and he used my vulnerability to his advantage. I was nothing more than a way for him to lead a deceiving life. It took me years to get over the way he lied to me and just the thought that I could have put my children that I love more than life itself in harms way with him almost made me crazy. Ive moved on and am finally a happy person and when I saw him on the news it made my anger come back. I just wanted people to know what he is all about. And I truly disagree with this church. Pedifiles and child molesters have no business in our communities, much less in our churches with our children. I just hope this church watches him closely!!! They obviously dont see Mark as a threat.

I grew up near Mark as a kid. My parents were close to his Grandparents and several of his aunts and uncles before we moved away. Mark was always an "odd bird" so to speak. He was also cruel and a bit of a bully. He was let to get away with it for various reasons. Family even made excuses for him. That he molests children doesn't surprise me considering his behavior towards younger children from back then. If I thought about it I could probably name the younger cousin he supposed molested. There were several potentials. I am disappointed however that Refuge doesn't understand the compulsion that a pedophile is under. Mark will do this again whether he consciously wants to or not. They risk their children and the children in the neighborhood - my neighborhood by placing him in a position where he is in the public trust.

I totally agree with you Tysmom. I didnt know Mark but about 3 years before we married. I had no clue of what he was, but I totally got that he was a bit spoiled by his family and after we married I began to notice he was odd. Things I couldnt have noticed before. Then of course, he told me about his awful past and then it was on. I made him tell his family, his Pastor at the church in Lebanon and eventually the police. I wish his cousin had pressed charges on him also, but he was an adult, getting ready to marry and just didnt want people to know. Its all just a shame and I feel sorry for his mother. She has to be sad about all of this. I just hope and pray that he doesnt take any more childrens innocence away.

The best that can be hoped is that Rev Meadows realizes that he has a rabid dog in his congregation. He can't let his guard down and he must never turn his back on him ever, ever, ever. The public trust is no place for Mark. Mark apparently never told Rev Meadows. The Refuge church leadership only heard from Mark after someone told on him. The deceit continues. Conditions of his compliance and registration do have him not taking a church leadership position that places him in contact with children, but he and Rev Meadows are straddling the definition and spirit of the law here is such a way as to really mock the pain of the victims of this crime everywhere. It just makes me sad. The council at Refuge should have really sought some serious legal and spiritual advice before moving ahead this way. I know their mission is to the marginalized in the community, but they don't need to increase the number of marginalized by creating a potential victim pool - themselves included. It's simply not safe. Even if Mark wasn't molesting children, he was a bully and extremely cruel and manipulative. He is not trustworthy. There is a duality in him that has been there for a long time and will continue to fester. It will come out in some manner. Rev Meadows needs to make sure that his congregation isn't the ones being hurt by it. That's all I have to say about Mark.

Tysmom, you said it all and so graciously. You know him well, I can tell. I wish that I had known Mark better before I married him. Ive put him and what I went through with him behind me, but when I saw the news about him going to be ordained, I had to speak out on what I knew. I was sure that someone from the church would find out and stop him from doing this. I was sadly wrong. It really is like a big slap in the face to his victims. Just not fair!!

Maximus if you wanted everyone to know about Mark then why didn't you interview on channel 11 instead of writing on topix that away you could really slander his name.

Well, for starters Im not out to slander anyones name. He did that to himself years ago when he crossed the line to molest a child. Im not out to get Mark Hourigan...I could actually care less about the man!! What I went through with Mark would take longer than a 2 minute segment on the news anyways!!Also, my parents, my children, and my husband didnt want me too. They all worried that Mark had made some loyal disfunctional friends while in jail that may try to hurt me so why let anyone know what I look like? I simply wanted the community of Louisville and this church to know what kind of person they are letting in those doors. I will never believe that he or any of these child molesters will change. I dont believe they can. I tried to stop them the best way I knew how. Unfortunately, this church decided to glorify this pedifile, put him on a pedistal, and paved the way for more of his kind to be leaders of churches. I imagine though that most churches would never do this....I think this one just made a horrible choice and will someday be upset with themselves for doing it.

Mark Hourigan and his church decided to go public with this story. Even if it wasn't their idea they didn't have to agree to interviews, newspaper articles, etc. This story is getting national attention. And it deserves too. What this church is doing is as bad as the Catholic Church shuffling pedophile priests around and not letting parishioners know. This man has a documented history of child molestation. 70% of all child molesters are repeat offenders. They are given counseling while in jail and told to avoid situations in which they come into frquent contact with children. As tysmom stated it was a condition of his release but he and the church are using technicalities to bypass that condition.
Maximus isn't even trying to hide her identity! She has said she married to him, who her other husbands were. I think it would be very easy for anyone, MArk Hourigan included to figure out who she is. So I doubt very much that she is trying "slander" him. It seems as if she feels a duty to expose him for who and what he is.

Zombie, you cant imagine what my life has been like since I met the man. He conned me just like they do all people, I had no idea I was married to a monster and people have made me pay dearly for that mistake. I came out with my story so that others could see what I saw and now people are coming down on me for not doing more!! You cant win for losing in this battle. All I know is this...I love my children, I thank God everyday that no harm came to them, and I pray that not only Mark Hourigan, but all child molesters have there day!! Im sick that any of them walk our streets just waiting for the moment they can strike again on our innocent children. Our society really needs to stop feeling sorry for these kinds and start protecting our children more. Its scary!!! Thank you for the kind words. I appreciate them more than you could know.
