Youth Pastor Watch

YPW1001.jpgA jury returned a guilty verdict late Tuesday for a former youth minister who had been accused of sexual misconduct with a minor.

A Marion County jury deliberated for four hours before finding Tyree Coleman, 29, guilty.

A 15-year-old boy said Coleman forced himself on him as he spent the night at Temple of Refuge Church in 2006. Coleman claimed that the teen initiated the encounter and that he thought the boy was of legal age.

And this just in

What are you teaching your children about sex offenders? That they’re on the Internet in chat rooms or social sites? The scary truth is, that sex offenders may be closer to your child than you ever imagined!

90% of sexually abused children are abused by someone they know.

“Sometimes they are the little league coach, youth minister, pastor, a family member,” says Randy Christian of the Jefferson County Sheriff Department.

States will spend millions for passing the AWA which is "doing more harm than good."

Legislators need to consult the EXPERTS rather than pass knee jerk legislation that actually endangers children and the whole of society. I encourage everyone to write their law makers demanding they stop endangerind children with knee jerk legislation and BRING IN THE EXPERTS.

"Maine is one of the few states that is going about this correctly. They are "LISTENING TO EXPERTS, rather than passing emotional knee jerk legislation which protects no one but endangers everyone. The vast majority of states have passed laws that "Do more harm than good."

Protecting children and society must be done "intelligently."

Here is a short "audio clip" referencing the issue in Maine.
