Church vows to help accused pastor

From The Crosswalk:

A Louisiana pastor says his church is hopeful that an associate pastor arrested last week on sex charges will be exonerated, according to But even if he's not, they still plan to minister spiritual help to him. Mike Raspberry, senior pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church in Slidell, says police arrested James Griffin, 67, on charges related to child molestation and possession of child pornography, after executing search warrants on computers at Immanuel Baptist Church and Grace Baptist Church, where Griffin previously volunteered, and at Griffin’s home in Pearl River. The Times-Picayune reports that Griffin has been charged with two counts of aggravated sex crimes and 47 counts of possession of child pornography. Raspberry says Griffin had no contact with children in his associate role with the church, which he has held since 2004. "We will continue to minister to the man, and to help him in any way that we can," says Pastor Raspberry

No word yet on what Pastor Raspberry is doing for the alleged victims.
