Wouldn't it have made more sense for him to say he was ministering to prostitutes?
Good thing they reminded us.
The folks that say that aren't Biblical Scholars. They're faggots in the cloth trying to rot the institution from the inside.
What exactly is lacking in the story. From everything I have heard about the Habana Inn you are only there for one reason and it ain't sleeping.
Was money involved, or was this simply asking a willing participant (or in this case, someone pretending to be willing) to later engage in private sex? If it's the latter, then this doesn't sit right with me. It sounds like an infringement of basic rights of speech and association.
PUH-LEEZE lay off the nonsensical "phobic" tag. Classic liberal tactic: If you don't approve of something, you must be afraid of it, enough so in fact to warrant a mental health kind of label. Here's reality: There's absolutely nothing wrong with disapproving of homosexual behavior. Even if you take a purely secular view and ignore the moral aspects, it's quite possibly the most destructive behavior on the planet. It's that behavior that is worthy of a mental health label, not disapproval thereof.
As for this pastor, if he's guilty, he's a hypocrite, but also remember that Christians don't claim to be perfect. Just forgiven. If he did it, he needs help and I hope he gets it. If he was set up, I hope his name is cleared.
Well, I wasn't going to say that, but I'm certainly not going to disagree, either. I think you are right.
hey, at least he wasn't engaged in 'tribal gaming' !
Excellent post and so right on.
A minister with a 2005 Mercedes? Not only does this NOT sound like a setup it sounds like it is true.
none of the ministers I know drive a mercedes.......
"I was set up. I was in the area pastoring to police."
First oral sex "wasn't having sexual relations". Now, it's "pastoring".
Nor do any I know. I have heard about some crooks who pose as ministers who drive expensive cars. Some of whom are still supported by their braindead congregations.
Yes, he has a 2005 Mercedes, and a lovely wife with a good job.
Maybe "had" should be the new verb wrt both.
"Maybe he is telling the truth.
Probably not. Sadly, stories like this one are all too common. The cops aren't really out busting people for "pastoring." "Pandering" is more like it.
Sad business. But one errant minister does not condemn all leaders of his denomination.
