    This is outrageous . He should be trying to help innocent children, not taking advantage of them. #smdh.

    I can almost guarantee you that this young girl was not his first or his last victim.  Pedophiles almost always have multiple victimes.  The pain of this violation will be with this young girl for a lifetime.

      Probably not his first…should be his last.

      Sad thing is, pedophiles/those who molest children cannot be rehabilitated; it takes deliverance from the Almighty!  Innocent children don’t deserve this–if it were my daughter, my Glock would be clapping; that’s all I have to say!

    Sounds like something that a priest of Baal would do. What system does his church emanate from?

    It should be legislated that surgical castration is the end result for ALL convicted pedophiles and sex offenders.  It’s a proven fact his type of behavior and deviant desire can NEVER NEVER NEVER be corrected through psychiatry, psycho-analysis, incarceration or medication.  Then they need to be placed in a high security area specifically for their sickness alone like Rikers Island NEVER to walk amongst us again in other words a LIFE sentence. They deserve to be permanently islolated. This legislative action should be encouraged and supported by ALL law abiding citizens and elected officials so that predators amongst us don’t have free access to those that can’t defend themselves against child molesters and rapists.  This may not be the best deterent but it certainly would curtail the problem because even if you have these sick urges there is No Man on the planet that wants to lose his genitalia. Make eunichs out of all convicted pedephiles and sex offenders and this problem will no longer plague every community in America.  Is that such a bizarre solution? … I don’t think so!  And if that’s too over-the-top then make them all wear electronic anklets to track their movements for life. If you’ve ever seen “To Catch a Predator” then you have an idea of how many of these sick men live in our community.

      As a victim of childhood sexual abuse by a beloved family member I can attest to the fact that it destroyed me. I was never whole again.  Two brief instances of groping and kissing  taught me I am not worthy of protection and care, that I am at fault for being too attractive, that my role in life is to satisfy other people  no matter what the cost to me, that my suffering is of no matter to others. 

      Yet, I would not have had him castrated, nor isolated for the rest of his life. I would give anything to have not experienced it. I would give anything to have had it be alright for me to tell on him, for my family to defend me, to embrace me and help me heal, but it was not.  I didn’t even know it was incest for ten years.I didn’t tell anyone in my family for about 30 years. And you know what they said then? “What am I supposed to do with that information?” It was such an enormous crime no one could approach it. 

      He is dead now. And when I heard the first thing I did was beg God to forgive him, because I didn’t want him to suffer. I knew he was a sick man, yet I loved him. I wish that while lived he had apologized to me, admitted the enormity of his transgression and begged me to forgive him.  That might have helped.

      Would he have stopped himself if he knew he would be castrated if caught? Exiled for life? I don’t know, what are the statistics on deterrence? Since these crimes are not just sexual but psychological and emotional, would he have violated the girl in these ways even if he didn’t have a penis?  Although your anger is justified and your impulses understandable, Blackfootlion, Mario Cuomo once said something about rape I never forgot. I paraphrase,  “If it happened to my daughter or my wife I would get the deadliest weapon at hand and beat the bastard to death.” He went on to say, “I’m glad I live in a civilized society where we have laws to protect us from our worst instincts.”  I don’t know the answer to child abuse. It enrages us all, but amputating body parts hasn’t been an adequate response since the Stone Age. We need to stop the cycle of violence, not perpetuate it. Someone said,  “An eye for an eye leaves everyone blind.” You let your passions run away with you, Blackfootlion.

        As far as I know there are no statistics on surgical castration as a deterrent because it doesn’t exist.  My proposal is to castrate those that are convicted of child molestation so that it will Never happen again at least not from that particular scum. Now if that same individual is exiled to a penal colony [Riker’s Island for example] for life then please tell me how can he ever come into contact with another child? Child molesters do not deserve the privilege to live amongst us, period! The only way to legislate something into law is to get voters behind the concept. Perhaps someone else has a better solution to America’s pedophile problem but doing nothing is not the answer.

          I just looked at what Wikipedia has to say about this. Assuming it is up to date it seems we can treat pedophiles with an array of treatments: psychotherapy, drugs, and civil committment.  Wikipedia described “civil comittment,” as imprisonment for an indefinite period of time imposed on someone who is essentially criminally insane. So it seems a variance of your proposal to castrate and isolate is already in use. While I am not a lawyer, it seems we all know these people are damaged beyond repair and a danger to society but we don’t impose the penalties we already have on the books to protect everyone. Is this something to bring up with our representatives?

         There is a principal …Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. To permit the continuance of the abuse is to be complicit in the act itself. The old remedy was to take him stone him and bury him. He will be resurrected later in judgement and either acquire the character of God, when he pours out His Spirit on all flesh, or go into the lake of fire having rejected the offer of godhood.

        And exactly where was this “old remedy” practiced, I respectfully challenge you to support your argument with some facts. The religious/spiritual pie-in-the-sky position doesn’t impress me, never did and I was raised in a Harlem Baptist church.  One thing experience has taught me is that no one on this side of Life can tell me what’s going to happen when we die, No One!, unless you’ve been there and your name is Lazarus. I’m not concerned with what may possibly happen to a child molester in the next life, I’m appalled and angry at what he WILL do to another innocent child in this life while “holy rollers” want to pray for his soul and hope that he sees the light. Are you serious? … he’ll either acquire the character of God or descend into the lake of fire??? Let me know how that turns out. Look, I’m no atheist but you sound as if we should all just “turn the other cheek” and then wait to get the taste smacked out of mouths.  I’m so sick & tired of let’s wait & see on the day-of judgement.

        • Samdromeda

            You sound like my baptist wife. I just told you the truth. But you do not have an ear for it. The problem is that we do not believe God and therefore we are cut off from God. Religious pie in the sky is for religious people who really do not believe God. And what judgement will you apply in the hear and now that will not be applied to you in judgement? Why do you think God made man in his own image? It was practiced in ancient Israel and the actual policy and procedure was handed to Moses by the very God that Baptist claim to worship. You are aware of the fact that Jesus is the God of the old testament aren’t you. Facts…Read your bible and pray for real understanding. It is the most factual book on the planet.

        • Samdromeda

              Here is the point. Either you are willing to make child molestation a zero tolerance offense even to the point of capital punishment or you play the same games by another name via the use of psychiatry, psychology and pharmacology and possibly that with incarceration. And then hope that he is cured when he gets out on parole. Pedophilia is just  another form of sexual addiction acted out on younger victims. In some circles it is called demonic possession. Drug the flesh and control the demon that is the modern approach. Classify and treat. But there is never a cure
          from human ingenuity.

        • Samdromeda

            My apologies. One cannot impose truth on one who cannot understand. That was wrong of me.

              I was being forthright. I am sorry if you felt that it was smug.

          • Vikingirish

            No, you were being smug. Blackfootlion is looking for a practical way to address the issue here on earth. You offered a spiritual  answer but no earthbound ones. You sidestepped his direct response to you by saying he wouldn’t understand. Baloney. He understands the spiritual principal, he was raised in the Harlem Baptist church. He wants to know how we as human beings in the flesh can protect the innocent from dyed-in-the-wool sexual predators. If you don’t have any thoughts on the issue stay silent. Don’t derail the conversation with descriptions of future, otherworldly results. It is non-sensical.

There is no derailing of conversation in counsel or comment. There is only the infusion of thought.

            The most direct way to address this issue would be to impose a policy which would state that no Pastor will meet one on one with a member of the opposite sex or a child. That would remove any hint of impropriety. It ensures proper conduct in order to continue employment. This is what is called professional ethics.It does work when people adhere to it. When they don’t they loose their credentials and employment.
            Beyond this, to address the cause, there has to be education that informs people about what sex is for and that you do not have sex with anyone other than your wife or husband. 
            It is important not to expose yourself to media that infuses degenerative thinking about sex and the forming of proper relationships. Protect your children from this influence. Give your children tools to stand up to peer pressure. Other children, who have been compromised by popular culture, are not good role models for your children. Teach your children to evaluate situations and avoid them based on your values and know why what is wrong is wrong. I hope that this helps.

    Why is the post entitled “pastor allegedly assaults young girl NINE TIMES!!!” when he’s already been convicted of the offense? Is there room for doubt?

  • Brockd

    I beleive that God can restore a genuine repentent individual. If this man has been convicet of this heinous charge, then he needs to be held accountable. Ultimately only God knows and sees the hearto f this person. If the facts have proven to be correct and he is incarcerated, then believe you me, he will get his. However, let’s all remember in the eyes of God there is no big or little sin. It’s all sin in His eyes

  • Hairweeds

    There is no doubt in this case.  He is another sick individual hiding behind the title of Pastor.  He has disgraced himself, and embarased the church, his family, the community in which he lived, and his friends.  A pastor must be a person of high moral integrity. Lately we are ending up with perverts that prostitute the gospel for selfish gain.  This man is a pedophile.  I hope he has to register as a sex offender.  He is a despicable man that deserves death.  There is nothing lower than a man that would attack a child.  May the Lord judge him according to his works, and I pray healing to the mind of his victim.  What good is a pastor that is full of the devil?
