Dude, of course he’s a fucking youth minister.


I’m so glad she pressed charges. I hope he learns his goddamn lesson!


>Alex, I’m sorry. I did not mean to do this. >Yes, I touched her. I don’t know where I touched her. Dude, you slapped her ass. Man up and say it.


Thoughts and prayers go out to him


I grew up in south Georgia. Youth pastors are the worst of the worst. They bang those kids all the time. The sociopath in my high school class (who even then had a weakness for much younger girls) went on to become an Assembly of God youth pastor. He got fired a few years later and it got super hush-hushed. I don’t have any hard evidence there was sexual misconduct, but I went to a fairly small school with this guy for almost ten years. To quote Bill Maher, “I don’t know it for a *fact*, I just know it’s true.” For those of you who don’t know the finer points of evangelical nutballs, Assembly of God is basically Pentecostal. Both groups would heatedly object to that designation, *but to you and me* they’re the same – speaking in tongues, running around, rolling on the floor, etc.
