That headline is ballsy for even little old me. But these kinds of stories from pastors really … really … piss me off.
Pastors are supposed to have a better direct line to the almighty. If their line is broken, how am I to trust flimsy kids on Facebook talking about how god told them this and that?
Fired First Baptist pastor to plead guilty in sex scandal involving 17-year-old
Jack Schaap, former pastor of First Baptist Church in Hammond, was fired in August because he allegedly had a relationship with a 17-year-old girl. The church initially said its deacon board fired Schaap because he committed a “sin.”
The church has said the 17-year-old girl and her family are members of First Baptist, which was one of the first megachurches in the country. The church has a congregation of more than 15,000.
Schaap, 54, of Dyer, is scheduled to have his initial appearance Wednesday afternoon before U.S. Judge Paul Cherry in federal court in Hammond.
