Youth Pastor Watch

posted by on August 8 at 11:30 AM



A trusted church member is accused of crossing the line with two young girls.

The former youth minister at Ardmore’s First Baptist Church, Carl Thomas, was charged with two counts of solicitation of a minor after allegedly exchanging some racy text messages with underaged girls.

“He had been sending text messages to two of the 14-year-old girls of a sexual content,” said Limestone County Lt. Joel Massey.


News that a popular youth minister had been charged with predatory criminal sexual assault brought the pastor of the church where he worked to tears. Terrence Jenkins, 36, of 4318 Walnut Ave. in Alorton, was charged July 23 with predatory criminal sexual assault.

The mother of the 8-year-old victim went to East St. Louis police and filed a complaint against Jenkins in December.

I think they should sue God! Oh, that's right. God is imaginary. Maybe that's why their churches are raping their children. Or maybe it's an act of God and we should call it that. "Sorry lady, youth pastor rape is clearly an act of God. Can't help you."

Why are white male Alabamans so freakishly ugly? Why do they go to such extravagant lengths to uglify themselves even more? The girls are so pretty, until they hit twenty or so.
