Texas Pastor Sentenced to 30 Years After Using Hidden Cameras to Secretly Film Child Porn at Church

Texas Pastor Sentenced to 30 Years After Using Hidden Cameras to Secretly Film Child Porn at Church 

And all the stuff I heard from Baptists and evangelicals and Protestants as I was growing up about marriage, dating, and complementarian male headship is totally false!

Is church a good place to meet single men if you’re a single woman who’d like to date or marry? Nope. Not only do most churches lack single men, but the ones who do attend (and even work a pastors!) end up being child pornographers.

I’m not sure if the pastor discussed in the articles below is married or not, or if he’s ever been married, but he probably is – or was.

The fact that this guy is into child porn puts to rest the Christian dating advice chest nut that God only sends spouses to people who “deserve” a spouse or who have achieved some kind of pinnacle of spirituality or godliness, so that, the standard Christian thinking goes, that they’ve “earned” one.

If child pornographers are getting married, that goes to show that you, as imperfect as you are (I’m assuming you’re not into child porn), sure as hey are not less worthy of marriage.

It seems like about at least once a month, a news story breaks about some church staff or pastor going to jail for having hidden cameras in a church’s bathroom.

At this point in time, if you attend a church, you may want to scrutinize the facilities to make sure there are no cameras by your toilet or urinal.

Tennessee Pastor Allegedly Rapes Teen at Worship Center

Tennessee Pastor Allegedly Rapes Teen at Worship Center

And it’s precisely news stories like this (and here are even more examples) that changed my mind into dumping the Christian “equally yoked” teaching, and pretty much disregarding my Christian set of parents advice about looking for a spouse in a church.

Why should I bother with either one of those teachings when so many church-attending Christian men are rapists, abusers, or other types of perverts? Here’s another example:

Wife of Pastor Jailed for Sex Trafficking Arrested for Obstruction, Could Face 28 Years in Prison

Wife of Pastor Jailed for Sex Trafficking Arrested for Obstruction, Could Face 28 Years in Prison

Observe how conservative Christian propaganda about marriage v. singleness is not true: marriage does not make people more godly, mature, or responsible. Single adults are not all out there engaging in sex trafficking or obstructing justice.

Just look, look at what marriage produces: adults who sell people as sex slaves and then lie to the police about it.

And don’t count on dating or marrying Christian men only – a lot of them are into things like having sex with (raping) teen kids and selling them into sex trafficking. You’d be better off dating nice atheist, Hindu, or Jewish boys who would never even think about raping kids or selling them into sex rings.

Excerpts:

Weeks after she was fired from her job as administrator in Lucas County, Ohio, former “first lady” of Abundant Life Ministries in Toledo Laura Lloyd-Jenkins has now joined her husband, the Rev. Cordell Jenkins, behind bars for allegedly obstructing a sex trafficking investigation against him.

An ABC 13 report said Lloyd-Jenkins could now face a maximum prison sentence of up to 28 years if she is found guilty of one count of obstructing a sex trafficking investigation along with one count of making a false statement.

…She pled not guilty to the charges against her when she appeared in court last Friday but was remanded in custody by Judge Jack Zouhary. Authorities allege that Lloyd-Jenkins, 43, notified a defendant of the pending investigation in March, then made false statements to law enforcement about her knowledge of the conduct alleged in the April indictment.

The former administrator and her husband were once partners in faith at Abundant Life Ministries until April 7 when Rev. Jenkins, 46, and Rev. Anthony Haynes, 38, were arrested by the FBI for sex trafficking of children.

Teen Girl Gets Raped at Summer 2016 Baptist-Hosted Youth Event by Staff Cook

Teen Girl Gets Raped at Summer 2016 Baptist-Hosted Youth Event by Staff Cook

This sort of thing sends chills up my spine. I was raised by my Christian parents to ASSUME that Christian areas – such as churches and so on – are safe places to be, and a good place to meet single men to flirt with in the aim of getting married. But I continue to see news story after news story of girls and women who are raped, fondled, or secretly recorded on church grounds or at church-sponsored events (and by men who are Christians, too).

The world’s largest church summer youth camp, hosted at a conference center owned and operated by the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma, could come under greater scrutiny this year after it was alleged in a recent lawsuit that a 13-year-old girl was tied up and brutally raped by a 35-year-old cook last summer.

…In the civil lawsuit that names the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma, Country Estates Baptist Church of Midwest City, and First Baptist Church of Terrell as defendants, the unidentified 13-year-old girl claims she was raped by camp cook Benjamin Lawrence Petty of Midwest City on June 16, 2016.

Man Charged With Raping Teen Inside Church During Youth Meetings

Man Charged With Raping Teen Inside Church During Youth Meetings

And my Christian parents always told me as I was growing up that if I wanted to be married, that churches would be good places to spouse-hunt. I don’t think I am so keen on that idea anymore, considering all the perverts that attend churches.

The rapist in this story, Clunie – I am not sure if he is a Christian or not or claims to be one or not. Regardless, I think I may now have doubts about churches being good places to meet single men to date or marry.

  • Travis Clunie, a 25-year-old man who allegedly raped a 15-year-old girl during youth meetings at a church in Sedalia, Missouri, has been slapped with second degree and statutory rape charges for his sins.
  • According to court papers cited by Fox 4 News, a few months ago Clunie raped the teen inside the church after she repeatedly told him “no.”
  •  

    The girl told investigators that Clunie assaulted her during youth meetings at the New Hope Baptist Church and had sex with her once in an upstairs bathroom and in another room at the church.

Church Videographer Who Sounded Very Christian in His Social Media Accounts Accused of Molesting Girls

Church Videographer Who Sounded Very Christian in His Social Media Accounts Accused of Molesting Girls

As I’ve said many times, Christian single women need to abandon the “be equally yoked” teaching, which limits them to only dating men who appear to be Christian. First of all, there is a shortage of Christian single adult males.

Secondly, even the Bible quoting, church going variety of Christian men turn out to be child rapists. See the story below.

This particular pervert, as one site noted, even peppered his social media accounts with Bible quotations and so on. Also note that in some of his Tweets, he mentions believing in “Family Values.”

Blogger John Morgan would argue that the two little girls in this story below are now “married” to this pervert, all because they had sexual contact. See (Link): this post for more on that.

  • The molestation, alleged to have happened at Greenville Presbyterian Church on Pendleton Street, was reported to police on Jan. 1.
  • The girls, ages 4 and 6, said they were repeatedly molested by church videographer, 23-year-old Gilbert Broyles, in November and December.Arrest warrants say Broyles admitted to church leaders that he either touched the girls underneath their clothing or got them remove items of clothing and touched them in “their private areas.”Police said they interviewed Broyles, and after he admitted his involvement with the girls, he was charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor and two counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

Alabama Preacher Admits to having AIDS, Sleeping with Church Members

Montgomery pastor admits to having AIDS, sleeping with church members

—There are updates at the bottom—

On this blog for the past few years, I have been asking Christians to explain WHY a Christian single woman should only marry a Christian man (I’ve yet to receive a response), since

1. Christian females out number Christian males, it’s not possible – so you’re in fact asking such women to die single, even though they may want to marry; and

2. “because the Bible says not to be unequally yoked” ~ does not add up.

That is, a lot of Christian men are porn addicts, have affairs on their wives, beat their wives up, and fondle children, and so on (click here to read examples ~ and this link: Shocking Porn ‘Epidemic’ Stats Reveal Details About Christian Consumption: ‘A Very Real Addiction’ That Can ‘Spiral Out of Control’ (2014 Study) ).

~ I am not seeing any kind of logical, rational benefit for an unmarried, Christian woman to limit herself to dating and marrying Christian males only, when there are agnostic, Jewish, or whatever other men, who may be more loving and more ethical than Christians.

Here’s another example of a guy who is a Christian who worked as a preacher, he may be married with kids (not sure on that), he has AIDS, and was having sex with various church members but did not tell them he has AIDS.

If I am remembering right, some of the news articles said he was having sex IN THE CHURCH BUILDING itself, which, IMO, adds an extra layer of grossness and inappropriateness to the story.

Whether this guy is a “real” Christian or not is MOOT because the gals he slept with or married believed him to be one. I do so tire of Christians saying, “Yeah, well, I don’t think this guy was ever “saved” to start with, he’s not a “real” Christian.”

That point is moot and does not let the guy off the hook – and, it’s my belief that actual, real Christians are guilty of awful sins like this on occasion.

Youth Pastor Molests Daughter, Lead Pastor Dedicates Children to Satan

Youth Pastor Molests Daughter, Lead Pastor Dedicates Children to Satan

For the billionth time: a Christian, unmarried woman is just as well-off marrying a Non-Christian as a guy who is a Christian who does things likes molests children, kills cats, or dedicates kids to Satan. I am not seeing a strong case here to apply “be equally yoked” to marriage.

Let this also serve as another example that marriage or being a parent does not instantly bestow a person with character, good morals, or godliness – the guy who did these deeds is married with a kid.

I have never married and never been a parent, but I’ve also never molested any kids, killed animals, or been involved in Satanism. A person does not need marriage or to pro-create to be a decent, ethical, compassionate, or law-abiding human being.

(Link): Youth Pastor Molests Daughter, Lead Pastor Dedicates Children to Satan

  • BY VINCENT FUNARO , CHRISTIAN POST REPORTER
  • October 2, 2014|12:44 pm
  • The 2005 Louisiana church molestation case that inspired the plot for the first season of HBO’s “True Detective” series involved a so-called youth pastor sexually abusing his own daughter and the lead pastor dedicating children to satan.

    Details of the case, which involved pastor Louis Lamonica Jr., and youth pastor Austin “Trey” Bernard of Hosanna Church in Ponchatoula, Louisiana, were revealed in a new VICE media documentary, “The Real ‘True Detective.'”

    Lamonica’s initial confession to local police opened up the case in 2005. The detectives who worked the case, captain Stuart Murphy of the Tangipahoa Sheriff’s Office and Tom Tedder, a special agent with the FBI, discussed it in greater detail with VICE and revealed some horrifying details.

  • Murphy revealed part of Bernard’s confession where he discussed the likelihood that he molested his own daughter.

    “I did touch my daughter and have improper contact with her,” Bernard told police in his confession. “At about 1-year-old, I began having shaking hands when changing her diaper, fearing what I am capable of.”

    Lamonica, who is now serving four concurrent life sentences for the details he gave up in his confession, admitted to satanic practices, child molestation, and the abuse of his own children inside the church.

    “And the dedication of [this 1-year old] into satan was this pentagram,” said Lamonica to police during his confession. She would be standing in the middle and it was like, her little dress/outfit was taken off and, there was a animal killed. If I remember right, it was a cat. Killed, blood drained and everybody drank the blood.”

  • …Murphy described the molestation that allegedly went on in the church as an exhibition that involved members sharing the children with each other to sexually abuse. The adults also confessed to each other the heinous things they did to them during their prayer meetings.

  • A sacrilegious pornographer was caught profaning an Austrian church after someone recognized her distinctive trait: her breasts.
  • As the Austrian Times reported, the woman, identified as 24-year-old “Babsi” (her stage name), was arrested and confessed to filming a dirty movie inside a Catholic church.
  • Besides taking place inside a church, the video apparently included a Bible and a rosary, police said.
  • The parish priest was tipped off when a parishioner spotted the video online, but since the video did not show the woman’s face, police initially lacked leads.
  • But when parts of the video were aired on local television, an apparent porn aficionado called in, saying they knew the woman’s identity based on her breasts.
  • “Babsi” confessed to filming the video, the Times reported.
  • According to the Times, religious officials decided that the soft-core porn was not a serious enough sin to merit reconsecrating the Catholic church.

Here’s yet another Christian man in trouble for rape (I am not sure if this pervert is married and has children of his own.

Edit: yes he is married with a son; according to The Christian Post: “Yoakem, 46, who is married and has a 14-year-old son himself, was a registered sex offender when he was hired by the church roughly three years ago.”

Excerpts:

    SCOTTSVILLE, KY (WSMV) –
    A southern Kentucky pastor is accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy in his church, and police are worried there may be more victims.

    Roy Neal Yoakem is the pastor at the New Gospel Outreach Church in Scottsville, KY.

    Authorities say they believe at least one alleged incident happened at the church, and they’re investigating another alleged incident they believe occurred in Gallatin.

    Gallatin police are expected to serve more warrants, including a charge of rape by an authority figure.

    Yoakem’s name was covered up on the sign outside the church on Friday, the day after the church’s board appointed Stephen Bratcher as interim pastor.

    A Kentucky church that hired a pastor with full knowledge that he’s a registered sex offender, is now the scene of an another alleged crime in which the minister is accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy who attended the church.

    …. Yoakem, 46, who is married and has a 14-year-old son himself, was a registered sex offender when he was hired by the church roughly three years ago.

    … “When he first became pastor about two and-a-half, three years ago, he informed the church of that right off,” Stephen Bratcher, the interim pastor at New Gospel Outreach Church told WSMV. “He explained that those allegations were false.”

    The church took Yoakem at his word and Bratcher defended the hire.

    “We’re firm believers in the Bible, so if God’s forgiven you, then we’re in no position to treat you otherwise,” Bratcher said.

Regarding this part:

    “We’re firm believers in the Bible, so if God’s forgiven you, then we’re in no position to treat you otherwise,” Bratcher said.”

You gullible, naive jackholes. Jesus said to be gentle as doves BUT WISE AS SERPENTS.

Even Reagan came up with “trust but verify” when dealing with the Soviets, geeze.

You are not to be naive little simpletons who takes a person’s word for it that his previous sex assault charges were mistaken or whatever. A boy was raped because of you idiots.
