That's right! Pass the pedophile is an exciting new game where a pastor is passed from church-to-church whenever there are allegations of sexual misconduct. The pastor is never held accountable... because his is a man of god (of course). This time it is a Baptist pastor.
But after one of those members accused him of sending obscene sexual texts to her teenage daughter last month, he resigned.
Pastor Gilyard was arrested Monday by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office on lewd and lascivious charges.
It isn't Gilyard's first time to meet with such accusations.
According to church leaders in Texas, Pastor Gilyard was forced to leave four churches in the eighties and nineties after women complained of sexual abuse.

Or course, Darrell Gilyard has never been convicted of a crime and at the moment, his arrest is for the alleged crime of lewd and lascivious behavior, but you get my point.
Was he really passed from church-to-church after women made complaints of sexual misconduct? I think there is strong evidence to suggest this report is accurate. This guy was a sexual assault waiting to happen. Why did they let him back in the pulpit? Let the lawsuits begin.
