Married Southern Baptist and Calvinist Preacher and Father of Boy Exposes His Naked Penis to Teen Girl in Store

Married Preacher and Father of Boy Exposes His Naked Penis to Teen Girl in Store

News links farther below: married Baptist preacher and father of seven year old boy – who had the boy with him at the time – exposed his penis to a 15 year old girl.

One of these news stories mentions that the guy believes in Calvinism. I guess he was predestined from before the foundation of the world to flash his penis at teenaged girls?

(The purpose of posts such as this one) Countering popular Christian stereotypes about dating, marriage, parenthood, and sex:

    1. Marriage does not make a person more godly or mature
    Conversely: notice this was not a single man, an unmarried man, hitting on this teen girl, it was a MARRIED man.

    2. Parenting does not make a person more godly or mature

    3. Marriage does not make people immune from committing sexual sin or behaving in a vulgar manner

    4. Assuming this preacher in the news story below is married, married Christian sex is not “mind blowing,” because if it was, one would not find this guy exposing his penis to a teen girl to get his socks off

    5. The “Be Equally Yoked” doctrine should be discarded in- so- far as marriage and dating are concerned.

    That self- professing Christian men are just as perverted and unethical as some Non-Christian men means single Christian women might as well date Non-Christian men also.

I’d like to add a sixth point:

    6. Gender complementarianism (sometimes referred to as “Biblical Manhood / Womanhood”) is a joke: women are asked and demanded, by gender complementarian Christians, to “submit” to men, even perverts like this one, in the story below.

    There’s something very faulty with a doctrine that asks almost unquestioning allegiance and unquestioning obedience from one entire group of people (females) to another, and at that, based on something like gender.

Also,

    7. Males need to be hit harder with purity teachings.

    Instead of churches and Christian literature and blogs telling women to “dress modestly,” this is an example of how and why MALES need to hear they should keep their genitals covered up.

    If you are going to teach “modesty” and “purity” beliefs, you need to do so equally, to both genders: men need to hear that they need to mind how they dress and how much they reveal of their bodies.

    This preacher obviously feels it’s perfectly fine to whip his penis out in front of a girl, so obviously, some Christian males do not understand that “modesty” applies to males as well as to females.

Notice that although we have yet another example of a Christian man who is a father and husband (and one who works as a preacher to boot) who was arrested for being sexually inappropriate…

That most Christians will probably still continue to harbor stereotypes against adult singles and to depict all single adults (or childless / child free adults) as being sexual sinners, perverts, and harlots, even though we adult singles not the ones whipping our genitals out in front of teen aged kids.

By the way, how “godly” and “perfect” was this Baptist preacher pervert that God sent him a spouse? I mean, often, Christians will say if you are still single past the age of 30 or 35, it’s because you are a horrible sinner or deeply flawed in some way, and God will not send you, will not reward you with, a spouse, until you fix yourself, or God cleans you up.

Please explain to me how someone such as myself – I’m a normal person, decent morals, not a pervert – is still single at my age, but God permits a total pervert like this one below, who displays his penis to girls in stores, is married?

There is something amiss with the Christian propaganda that one has to “earn” a spouse by being good when I see so many reports of married Christians who are found guilty of sexually inappropriate behavior. And I see this thinking pop up on Christian blogs or sometimes in books about dating and marriage.

—– WOMEN, AESTHETICALLY SPEAKING, DO NOT LIKE PENIS —

Before I get to the links themselves:
I have yet to figure out why so many males feel that women or girls want to look at a penis. Are these males motivated by the mistaken idea that women/girls think they are sexy to look at?

As I blogged about months ago, most females find the penis repulsive-looking, grotesque to ridiculous, and as far as looks go, size does not matter.

Most females are grossed out by what a penis looks like, not turned on by them. So it’s beyond me why males expose themselves or send photos of their genitals to women on dating sites.

Do most women enjoy a good looking man (as in a man with six pack abs, good looking face, and broad shoulders)? Yes and HELL YES. But we are not turned on by male genitalia.

We appreciate other body parts on a good-looking man but a penis is not one of them. It’s the very rare woman who gets turned on by seeing a penis. Most of us recoil in disgust at the sight.

So I just wonder about men like this who whip their penises out – either he was trying to shock or scare the girl, or he assumes she would find it sexy?

    According to a police report, Kevin Lohse, pastor at Woodlawn Baptist Church in Russellville, confessed to investigators that he inappropriately exposed himself to a young girl in Burke’s Outlet on Feb. 13, with his seven year old son in tow.

    The Russellville Police Department had received a report of indecent exposure at the store after a mother reported that her juvenile daughter was subjected to Lohse’s inappropriate behavior while shopping. The female stated that Lohse had a small child with him and that he possibly left the scene in a van.

    …. According to police, the video showed footage of Lohse with his seven year old son at Burke’s on the day of the incident. He can clearly been seen manipulating the zipper of his pants to expose his genitals, and presenting himself to the juvenile female who was shopping in the junior’s section of Burke’s.

    Soon after, a warrant was issued for Lohse’s arrest. He was taken into custody and booked at the Logan County Detention Center.

    Police in Kentucky say social media helped identify a man accused of indecent exposure as a Southern Baptist pastor who was shopping with his 7-year-old son.

    A Southern Baptist pastor in Kentucky was charged with indecent exposure in an arrest that police credit to social media.

    Kevin Lohse, pastor of Woodlawn Baptist Church in Russellville, Ky., was arrested Feb. 26 after police identified him as the man seen on surveillance video exposing himself to a girl shopping in the junior section of a local department store.

    The Russellville Police Department posted a still image of the suspect on Facebook Feb. 17. One week and 646 shares later, Lohse turned himself in and confirmed he was the man in the security footage, according to a police report quoted by WBKO television in Bowling Green, Ky. Police called it “a prime example of community policing.”

    Lohse, a graduate of Liberty University, accepted a call as senior pastor at Southern Baptist-affiliated Woodlawn Baptist Church in June 2013. Before that he was on staff at Pathway Baptist Church Calvert City, Ky., an independent Baptist congregation that identifies with Founders Ministries, a group formed in 1982 to promote Calvinism in Southern Baptist life.

    … At the time of the incident, police said Lohse’s 7-year-old son was with him in the store. The mother who reported the indecent exposure said the suspect had a small boy with him as he left the scene, possibly in a van.

  1. The guy is a pervert.

    Calvinism is not to blame for his being a pervert.

    Complementarianism is not at to blame, nor can we ascertain anything in particular about his sex life with his wife; clearly, the guy has a problem; normal men do not do such things.

    As much as I agree with you about there being a myriad of problems with the church, I cannot see that such are at fault for a guy who has a major problem; yes, it’s unfortunate that he never got the help he needed, and that somehow he was able to get to the position he has now as a pastor without these problems having been caught, earlier. But I don’t think you can blame this incident on anything other than the guy’s insanity and sinfulness, in particular.

    You are allowing your biases to colour your thinking about this, and are smearing Calvinists such as myself.

    1. @ Will S

      I normally delete comments that disagree with my posts. Just FYI.

      You said,
      “Calvinism is not to blame for his being a pervert.C omplementarianism is not at to blame,”

      Yep, both are to blame, as he is a Calvinist… and dollars to donuts he is complementarianist.

      Gender comp sets women up to be abused, and gives some men the mind set to do these sorts of things. Women should not be taught to “submit” to men. Women should be taught to think for themselves, and not led to believe they need a man’s protection, “covering” or a man to make any and all life choices for them.

      Calvinists believe everything is ordained… God chose for this girl to be exposed to this freak’s penis, and God chose and foreordained that he expose his penis to her, and Calvinists teach that men have no free will, they are only “free to choose sin,” which means, this dude didn’t have a choice not to whip it out.

      As this guy was a Calvinist and likely a gender comp (as he is a Southern Baptist preacher), yes, Cal and Comp are to blame in this situation.

      I can guarantee you that if these news stories said this dude was an atheist, you’d more than likely be blaming his atheism in part or in total for his lewd behavior.

      Something is wrong if a person can sit around studying Christian theology, get hired to work as a preacher, no doubt be exposed to teachings such as ‘Christ’s Golden Rule,’ (do unto others), and still behave in this vulgar fashion.

      Clearly, something is wrong with or in Calvinist / Gender Comp/ Southern Baptist land since this guy no where learned that it’s wrong to flash his penis at a girl.

      Also, marriage and parenthood do not make people more holy or pure than people who remain single or child free… interesting you chose not to comment on that aspect of it but are more concerned with defending Calvinism and Gender Comp.

      You are allowing your pro Cal and pro gender comp views to color your thinking.

      1. And yet you reserve the right to comment at the blogs of others whose views dissent from yours. Deleting dissenting comments / not letting them through is your privilege, of course, but is that not hypocritical?

        I think it is.

        But I will bow out of commenting further at your blog, ever again, I promise.

        And you won’t comment any more at mine, either.

    2. @ Will S, regarding your second comment:

      Sorry no, you should read the blog’s rules before commenting, as I say at the top of the page,

      “this is a blog for me to vent; I seldom permit dissenting views. I don’t debate dissenters.”

      Also see this blog’s Policy in Dissent page,
      https://christianpundit.wordpress.com/about/policy-on-dissent/

      Instead of complaining about me being hypocritical, you should feel glad I have now allowed two of your comments to be published, I normally just delete dissenting comments, just skim the first line or so to see what they are about, and trash them if they are negative.

      I’ve already given you more consideration than I do about 95% of other people who post here who disagree with me.

      I’m not even sure who you are or what your blog is. You might be the guy from the blog I commented on earlier today? I think PUA / men’s rights / Alpha Male stuff is a load of nonsense, terribly sexist, and has no place among anyone who considers themselves Christian, if you are that guy from that blog.

      I had no intention of ever commenting at your blog again ever, so no loss there.

    3. @ Will S
      (I make this comment for any future readers of this exchange, not for Will S in particular).

      Will S said,

        “nor can we ascertain anything in particular about his sex life with his wife;”

      Don’t have to, not really.

      Evangelical, Reformed, and other conservative branches of Christianity frequently teach in their sex propaganda – repeated in sermons, books, blogs – that if only Christian youth will stay virgins until marriage, that the sex will be great and “mind blowing.”

      They seem to think that since Christian married sex is regular and ‘mind blowing’ that neither partner in a marriage will be tempted to sexually express themselves outside of marriage. (This teaching also serves to entice youth to stay virgins until marriage.)

      But here you have a married preacher (who is apparently a gender comp, and as stated in one article, a Calvinist – really, that seems to disturb Will S more than the guy being a pervert), who still sought to get his sexual kicks by showing a girl his penis.

      This is antithetical to typical Christian propaganda regarding sex: according to typical teachings, if a man is getting totally satisfied in marriage (and Christians guarantee to the teens and college kids that if they wait until marriage for sex, that married sex will be AWESOME!!11!!) there would be no need for this guy to get titillated via showing his penis to other women.

      So this is not even really a critique of the dude’s married sex life per se, so much as it knocks another hole in the Christian argument that
      “married sex = great sex, and no need for a man to get sex all over the place when Christian married sex means hot sex every night with his spouse”.
