Just my one additional thought on all this: being a Christian and being a pastor IS A CALLING,*not* a "profession" or money-making job.

I look at my swimming pool as a big vagina, that's why I like to masturbate in it.

He started a cult in southern California and is hiding out there until he haves to go to court on the sex charges. I believe starting another cult violates the judges order.

Quick true story. So I was a pastor offering counseling to a young married female parishioner. I ended up having sexual intercourse with her on my desk in my pastor's office at church. Sandy my wife catches us. Talk about a cock block. Sandy upset and crying goes to woman's husband crying about it. They immediately separate and are divorced soon after. Yes they had young children. Sandy was upset but she kept silent and stayed with me. Sandy is a good woman, she is submissive and stands by her man no matter what. She is battle proven. She's my ace up my sleeve and at the end of the day my lady. I love her because she accepts me unconditionally and understands men have needs and certain lusts.

Cindy, thanks for your comments. Yes, my words are strong. And yes, I am disturbed because (1) I don't believe this couple handled this situation in a Biblical way (thereby causing even more shame and suffering) and (2) because women in such cases are automatically depicted as 100% victims instead of being held at least somewhat accountable for their complicity.
Were this a grown man claiming 100% victimization status from a female pastor/counselor, I wonder if the word “vulnerable” would have been applied to him? Or that he would have been depicted as a victim period. I’m just saying.
I cannot tell you how many times I have had to fight off advances from male bosses while I was working in the entertainment industry. Did these men bear the greater responsibility because they were in positions of authority? Yes, of course. But that would not have absolved me of ANY responsibility had I given in to sexual sin. I wasn't a child... I was a Christian woman who should know better. And I certainly would not have sued my boss or counselor had I given in, which, BTW, I almost did, so I’m not unsympathetic with how hard it was for this woman.
So yes, this "pastor" did bear most of the responsibility and the church was just plain foolish to allow a male counselor/pastor to counsel a woman alone...without an open door and/or other woman present...
I agree 1000%. Here is a bit more. If the woman consented to his advances, then she too is JUST as sinful in her actions. Not the pastor alone. The "marriage" in the husbands eyes was between him/her. If there had been an agreement between EVERYONE that it was ok, then there would be NO cause or injury. Still in agreement with scripture "where there is no law "contract/agreement" [broken] there is no sin".

But to make matters worse, marriage is for the children of this world (dead in Christ). But we are suppose to be the bride? Why then are we married to another? And as a "Christian" are 'we' from this world or just passing through? And as Christian's are 'we' not suppose to "come out from among her"?

I'm trying to say that God forgives everything and a pastor can really do anything as long as other parties consent. Pastors and priests shouldn't be responsible for fleshly desires. God expects this of us and will forgive us. This world is carnal and God knows it.
