Former Pastor Sentenced to 7 Years
« on: April 08, 2013, 12:15:15 AM »
My buddy told me this news earlier today, though the case is a year old...

This guy was one of my Pop Warner football coaches for a couple years in the early 90's; probably my favorite coach ever in all my years of playing football, baseball, and basketball. Damn shame...

It is odd how "men of God" seem to have such failings.  My advice...stay away from all of them.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

The FFRF newspaper "Freethought Today" has a section called the "Black Collar Crime Blotter", a list of various news items from around the world (mostly the US, but other countries as well) detailing various clergypeople exhibiting their exceptionally high ethical standards.  *cough*  As you would probably imagine, most of the stories have to do with child molestation, but there's other fun stuff in there as well, such as embezzlement and assault.  Each BCCB section typically contains somewhere around 100 such stories.  (Freethought Today is published ten times a year.)  That column, plus their "Crank Mail" column, is worth the price of membership all by itself.

Seven years seems way to short of a sentence for raping two teenage girls.  I'm assuming that he will have to register as a sex offender from now on but tacking on hard labor in Siberia to his sentence can't be a bad thing.
Here read a book.  It's free.
