Harry Freakstorm: He sounds like one those Pastor first name types. "Hi. I'm Pastor Jack. You can call me Pastor Jack. That's my name. My what a lot of love there is in this family. You guys make Jeebus happy. God bless you all. Now Pastor Jack wants to talk to your daughter alone. Don't worry. I'm Pastor Jack. You can trust me." I'll make sure she gets home.

"Now, sweetie, you can trust Pastor Jack. He and Jeebus are like this. Now when you go to school, do the other kids make fun of you because you love Jeebus? Of course they do. that's just the devil in them. Pastor Jack has seen this too many times. Pastor jack had to endure it when he was your age. All those mean kids full of the devil. What do you say we pray for their souls, right now? You and Pastor Jack. Just kneel right there in front of me and start your praying. I will lay my hands on your head and Pastor Jack will channel his power through you. "

"Oh your prayers are strong. Pastor Jack senses your strength in the lord. Bless you. Bless you my child. Just keep praying, my dear. Soon you will drive Satan from your classmates and they will know Jeebus' love like you do.

Oh, Jeebus is speaking through Pastor Jack. He wants to bestow a special blessing upon you. Look up and see what you have done. Jeebus wants you to have it. To take it and to receive Pastor Jack's special blessing. the blessing that is normally only for Mrs. Pastor Jack but she's been so cold in indifferent and won't do things that won't result in procreation. Take it now and receive, child! Receive!

Exactly 92 seconds later

Oh God! That was Jeebus great! Go wash yourself off in the holy water. Jeebus says you prayed with conviction and just the right tongue action. You are a special child amongst his flock. Go now and speak not of this to anyone. Pastor Jack confides in you and your special prayers. Do not tell another soul for Pastor jack can' do another dime in medium.

Pastor Jack says maybe you and two of yo ...


i lol'd out loud... with the exception of the use of terms like fatties, "tongue action", and "dime in medium" it would have made for a script in an after school special...

mcgreggers99: We all have the capacity to screw up our lives...which ever one of us hasn't sinned be the Weeners a negative comment about this guy. Lord knows I can't condemn him for what he's done since I'm a sinner same as him.

...but seriously....you were the pastor of a "mega" church, you claimed to be the Shepard of a large flock of people and you turn around and twist that position to send 640 texts, share 25 phone calls to prey (not "pray") on this girl, and it never crosses your mind that you *might* be walking a razor's edge?

My problem with this guy is the hypocrisy......the same hypocrisy that Jesus hated.

If more Christians practiced what they preached more people might actually believe what they were saying.


but they don't.  so the rest of us will continue to ignore the religious people like you.

Schaap admitted to the relationship but said he was suffering from "extreme stress, exhaustion, depression, burn-out and several other medical maladies."

IT WASN'T MY FAULT!!

MyKingdomForYourHorse: Ohh, this happened in Hammond Indiana. No big shocker here folks, for those of you who haven't had the pleasure of visiting the great north western part of Indiana...don't. No really just hop on the expressway and drive as fast as you can from this state.


It's not just north-west Indiana.  outside of Indianapolis and a few other tiny pockets of civilization, Indiana is like living in the 15th century.

Unless you enjoy nature in southern Indiana, I recommend never coming here, ever, for any reason.

Navin Johnson: Chicago Magazine did a long story several months ago about this church.  Highly recommended (and disturbing).

http://www.chicagomag.com/Chicago-Magazine/January-2013/Let-Us-Prey- Bi g-Trouble-at-First-Baptist-Church/


Very disturbing - I could only get to page 4 before I gave up in disgust.  Valiant reportage though.  That sort of reporting should be rewarded.
lessons learned-
Keep your own compass and never surrender your personal convictions.

I feel badly for those seeking help and succor and finding this instead.
This is a great example for why you shouldn't indoctrinate your children but instead let them choose a religion later in life.
Later, when they've developed an ability to think for themselves.

You know how I know? The victim was a girl. Preachers always go for the boys.

You know, having been raised Methodist (but no longer religious) that is NOT how a preacher should act. A preacher should drone on about love and kindness and doing your best, allowing you to sleep off Saturday's hangover in peace, not rant and shout and polish his shaft like a madman.

Farking Baptists are so farking weird.
 
2013-03-15 10:42:56 AM  

CeroX: See... they believe that asking for blanket forgiveness absolves them from all the sins, and since the clergy don't require them to list every douchebaggery thing they say and do, that as long as you: Ask for forgiveness, accept jesus in your heart, and give charity (read: money) to the church, you are now a "good person" who is destined for heaven...

What happens then is that they believe that no matter how they act, they are a good person and they take it upon themselves to convert others by pointing out how bad they are and then try and preach the same message of act like a douche, but ask for general forgiveness and "accept christ in your heart" and suddenly you can still act like a douche but become part of the club...


Those people are doing it wrong.

Not quite as interesting as the reverend who told his congregation that Christ only comes to them through his penis so put it in your mouth and prepare to receive.
 
2013-03-15 12:33:59 PM  

CeroX: guys, the age of consent for a state has dick to do with federal laws and guidelines when crossing state lines... there's a lot of state laws that are fine INSIDE that state, but carry them over a state line and the federal government is going to step in...

Off the top of my head without links or citations i believe the feds have a problem with unapproved people taking the following across state borders:

Fireworks
Guns
Knives
Minors
Alcohol
Tobacco
Firewood
Replica Guns
Toy Guns (of the airsoft variety)


Shoot, a fella' could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.

Relatively Obscure: "God wants us to fark.  No, seriously.  I asked him.  He sent me a text this morning."


actually HE does in all seriousness. Read Songs of Solomon.. it is a veritable graphic novella. Problem is I don't think God wants us to fark folks other than your wife.
As to this story no mention of his wife etc... I mean if the girl is 17 when they first had sex and this dude is unmarried then I think 10 yrs is harsh.

I grew up in a large southern baptist household and been all over the east side of the mississippi going to various churches... this pretty much sums up the baptist philosphy

All these priests are doing is sharing a very special method of prayer with their young charges.

I mean, he's sharing his body and, well, it isn't blood but close enough... so really it's Communion! Just ... stickier.

IIRC, Song of Solomon is about unmarried lovers.

namatad: mamoru: I don't know about Indiana, but age of consent, especially for minors, doesn't usually apply to people in positions of authority, does it?

not relevant
he can not be convicted of statutory rape, which is why he was farking 16 year olds and not 15.
position of authority?
LOLOLOL

he might be able to lose his job because of it. but that is it.

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: Seems like a lot of people get into positions of religious authority for the sex.


I think it's more generic than that - people in power often abuse their power

But religions (a) probably wider range of potential victims (b) more emphasis on obedience to authority

SquiggsIN: Ed Grubermann: Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: Seems like a lot of people get into positions of religious authority for the sex.

And money, and power, and ego gratification, and... pretty much anything but serving God. Why do we kid ourselves? Religion isn't about God. Religion is about keeping priests fed and clothed. God is just window dressing to give the scam a little respectability.

this is where we link religion and politics, right?


Organized religion is a form of politics.

CeroX: I can't watch youtube from work, but i'm willing to bet that if you replace a lot of euphemisms in that sermon, it'll translate to something something something charity something something something personal giving us more money will reserve your seat in heaven


Watch it when you get home. Seriously.

He is violently masturbating a metal rod while giving a sermon, with accompanying pleasurable sound effects. Kind of like the chicken leg scene in Killer Joe, except he's by himself.
 
2013-03-15 08:47:38 PM  

SquiggsIN: this has nothing to do with the age of consent because he was in a position of authority over her. same reason they CARE about teenage students sleeping with their teachers despite the students being at or above the age of consent


For the record, my only problem was with TFA referring to her as "underage". She wasn't under the age of consent. That said, the guy violated a position of trust, and pretty much any parent (and most people that aren't parents) in our society would say he deserves to be punished for what he did, myself included. There is no excuse for his actions. We have laws like the ones used to prosecute him for good reason.

However, had he not been in a position of trust, the only crime committed would be farking her in another state, although had they both lived in the other state, there would have been no crime at all. Of course, one could argue that had he not been in a position of trust, he might not have convinced her that Jesus thought they should fark - she might have seen him as just another creepy old dude instead of someone her parents had told her was a holy person that could offer her answers and help her with her problems.
 
2013-03-15 08:53:17 PM  

SquiggsIN: they can't have sex with their 16 year old girlfriend even if it was legal last week before they turned 18... etc...


Actually, they count calendar dates by birthdays, so 1 year and 51 weeks between the birthdates of the parties involved is okay, but 2 years and 1 week is an unholy crime that will get a guy sent to PMITA prison for years and registered as a sex offender for life.

My sister has a family friend whose wife goes with him when he moves to a new location and notifies the neighbors of his sex offender status, since she was his "victim" and they are 2 years and 2 months apart. They've been happily married for 10 years and have 2 kids together. Her mother didn't like him, and notified the police just after his 18th birthday that he was farking her then-15-year-old daughter.

Yes, it is wonderful, compared to the alternative.

giftedmadness: while the guy is a complete scumbag for saying God told him to have sex with him

according to the article "The girl had turned 17 when the incidents were happening, according to prosecutors. "

also,

the age of consent in Indiana is 16.....

so what is the problem here? Of course the church should fire him, but he shouldn't be sent to jail.

he broke the law.  As her pastor, he was entrusted in a position of authority and thus, no nookie!  Same way that doctors aren't supposed to shag their patients... teachers their students, etc...




So pastors can't date people in their congregation? I thought college professors could date students.
