MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — A preacher at a West Virginia church has been charged with invasion of privacy after he allegedly placed a phone in a men’s bathroom, recording videos of two victims.
William Page, 59, of Morgantown, was charged in a criminal complaint with the misdemeanor, news outlets reported.
The complaint said church members told Monongalia County sheriff’s deputies that a smartphone had been placed on a ledge above a men’s restroom urinal on April 28. Deputies said the phone belonged to Page and contained videos of two males using the restroom along with several short videos of Page setting up the device.
Deputies said in the complaint that the videos “were captured without the victims’ consent in a place where privacy would be assumed.”
As to this guy’s Tweet, where he states in regards to this news story:
A Pastor engaging in sexual predatory behaviour in a bathroom.. It’s almost like every accusation Conservatives level at LGBT people is projection…
(tweet by Barry Evans)
-it’s not mutually exclusive:
Both self-professing religious people AND some members of the LGBT community sexually abuse or sexually harass other people in bathrooms.
You can view a list of examples of LGBT (mostly the “T”) who were arrested for raping or sexually harassing others in bathrooms, dressing rooms, etc, (Link): in this post.
Let’s all stop pretending as though the only sexual abusers, perverts, and those who cover up their crimes, belong to groups of people we disagree with politically or religiously
(Hello (Link): Jeri Massi, Stephanie Drury, and Never Trumper Melody Kay Young).
Perverts and sexual abusers are members of all groups – Democrats, Republicans, Muslims, (Link): atheists, Christians and any other groups you care to name.
