    Wow.


    I can't wrap my head around the parent that says "our new pastor just got out of jail for molestation, let's take the kids to hear him speak". ...

    "
    "We came because the children who we should be teaching and preaching cannot come out today," said Mikhail Muhammad, the leader of the New Black Panther party, a group of protesters who want Gilyard, who was only released from prison in December, to leave the church.
    "The black ministers in the city of Jacksonville ought to be ashamed of themselves. How can you say you're a follower of Christ but you won't stand up and speak out against this injustice?," Muhammad asked. There have been several "ugly exchanges" between church-goers and protesters, the Guardian*reported, as many are divided over whether a man convicted of such a crime deserves to preach in front of a congregation again."


    Looks like his preaching is not sitting well with the community. Sheesh this guy sounds like a real piece of work.

    I read one article where the Bishop said they were down ( meaning the church was not doing that good) and the preacher was down, so this is to "lift both parties up" and give the church and this convicted molestor a second chance!

    What kills me is he was just released from jail, not like he attended any program or even finished parole. He was released and then hired!



    And you know what? The molestation in the article I posted was NOT his only stint with sexual misconduct:

    Democrats believe that he has paid his debt to society and deserves to be restored to his place as a free citizen as if the molestations never happened.

    It's how democrats elected an 8 time loser ex-con to political office, how Jesse Jackson Jr. won reelection quite easily, how Marion Berry got elected Mayor after he was released from prison and how Alan Grayson got so many votes.

    Check out the sex offender thread. Some don't think he should be "reminded" of past crimes or stigmatized...and others think that it's the resposibility of the kids to identify and reject the advanced of pedophiles.

    It's a matter of fairness and equality. It's civil rights. This is what happens when a society, when a nation becomes degenerate. Degeneracy itself becomes acceptable. Where there is fairness the people lose the ability to judge right from wrong or good from evil. We owe the offender fairness and equality and we owe the children therapy to help them deal with the crimes committed on them. To learn to be more accepting themselves of what is evil. To get over it by becoming more accepting and inclusive themselves.
