Youth Pastor Watch

posted by on September 15 at 9:06 AM


A Malden man is facing felony charges for allegedly holding his wife against her will in their home and beating her for a week.

Lonnie D. Campbell, 35, was arrested Sept. 3 by the Malden Police Department after the woman apparently escaped and reported the attack to officers at the police station.

“Mrs. Campbell stated that Lonnie had tied her up with shoe strings and punched her numerous times in the face, mid-torso and her back,” said Malden police chief Jerrod Bullock. “Apparently she has also made statements that he choked her, hit her several times with a belt in the back, and hit her in the back of her head with a hammer.” …

“He was a youth minister of a church in Malden—I don’t know if he still he is, but he was at one time,” said Darian Egan of Malden, the victim’s brother. “I just hope he gets a long time in prison.”

These youth pastor things are quite interesting. Interestingly enough, people do these sick things.

What is more interesting is that you are dedicating your life to discover these things so you can laugh and mock Christianity. Do you have a goal with this? Or is this just what you do in your parent's basement since you have a tough time getting dates?

Yes, I live in my parents' basement and can't get a date. You nailed me! Man, you're good.

Not mocking Christianity, though. My parents, in whose basement I live (where I fail to get dates), are/were Christians. (One of my parents is deceased.) Just get tired of being told, by Christians, that people who are not religious are immoral, or morally lacking, and that gay people are a threat to children. Just think the endless parade of rapist youth pastors is, given those assertions, highly ironic.

Gotta go -- I hear my mother calling me.
