Youth Pastor Watch

posted by on June 24 at 10:50 AM


A former youth pastor was sentenced on Friday to six years—three years in prison and three years suspended—for his sexual involvement with a 14-year old girl. yowkiger.jpg Keith Daniel Kiger, 31, of Winslow entered a negotiated plea of guilty to reduced charges of sexual indecency with a child before 4 th Judicial Circuit Judge William Storey. He was initially charged with second-degree sexual assault…. Kiger admitted to engaging in sexual contact with the victim as many as six times, according to the arrest report. Most of the contact reportedly occurred in the back of his van during the day in public parking lots across Fayetteville.

One should be wary of any man with a van... and that goes double for any van with a mural on the side and a bed in the back.

Hey! I've got one of those, @1: 1975 VW Riviera camper to be precise - but, I'm not a Youth Pastor, so I don't count.

And seriously, at the rate these guys are going into the clink, I estimate that by about 2011, approximately 70% of the U.S. prison population will consist exclusively of YP's convicted of sexual misconduct, and that there will be such a shortage of them that churches across the country will be forced to outsource these positions to India and Latvia.

this concludes that vans are sexy no matter how young or Christian you are.

If this van's a-rockin' . . . bust in with a warrant, 'cause a youth pastor is raping a child.

While I, like most SLOG readers, appreciate the careful reporting of the dangers of youth pastors, adding a photo like this is akin to posting a shot of a shark's bloodied, grinning maw after claiming another limb for carnivores.

Can we keep the posts text-only? This ruined my lunch.

No! I love the photos, it gets me closer to the enemy.

I approve of including photos. Except for the occasional hottie, most of these guys are fugly, which drives home the dubious nature of consent coming from anyone under the age of 16 at least. Few girls or boys just a few years older than the victim in this case would consent to sleep with that guy. Ugh.
