Baptist Pastor in Puyallup arrested

Another Baptist pastor has been arrested on charges he sexually abused two sisters, ages 12 and 13.

TACOMA, Wash. -- A pastor in Puyallup has pleaded innocent to four counts of child molesting involving two sisters whose family attends his church.

The Rev. Forrest Lee Hudson, 65, pastor of Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church, was arrested Friday, posted $100,000 bail and remained free after his arraignment Tuesday in Pierce County Superior Court on first-degree child molestation and three counts of second-degree child molestation.

Judge Vicki L. Hogan ordered Hudson to avoid any contact with anyone under 18 but did not bar him from ministering to his congregation.

There is no word yet on if his congregation will stand behind him. I'm betting they blame the girls.

Oh yeah, I bet you're right. Those girls were "asking for it"...*pukes*...

What happens to the community of the church when this happens...they clam up. And ignore it, right?

Wow, that's literally two miles from my house.

Of course there are about 68 churches within two miles of my house, so it's not surprising.

Dammit I hate this town.

There are other people who have now stepped forward with similar allegations against this Pastor.
