It's not the least bit surprising, really. And I thought christians were supposed to be against suicide.

No doubt the dishonest will now try to claim that Pitts is "not a true christian".

FAIRVIEW, Okla.--

A pastor at a church in Fairview is accused of rape, police said.

Tommy Pitts, the pastor at the Midway Assembly of God Church, was arrested on April 1 on a slew of rape and sex abuse charges against three children.

[...]

Police said Pitts was arrested on 15 counts of first-degree rape, 15 counts of rape by instrumentation, 20 counts of lewd or indecent acts with children under 16 and 20 counts of forcible sodomy. He is on suicide watch, police said.

Investigators said the abuse went on for months.

[...]

Banks said Pitts' wife then called the authorities, leading to his arrest.

During the call, Major County Sheriff Steven Randolph said Pitts' wife told deputies Pitts was threatening to commit suicide.

The sheriff said Pitts tried unsuccessfully to shoot himself then crashed his vehicle into a semi in traffic. He refused treatment.

He was definitely not a 'Genuine christian'. But CHURCHIANS are NOT christians, so of course they would make the claim that he's not a true christian, who would know better than others who are not true christians.
