Volunteer pastor arraigned on sexual abuse charges

Another Pastor falls... This time up in the great state of Alaska.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- A volunteer youth pastor from Kenai arrested for sexually abusing a boy was arraigned in court Saturday.

Investigators say they found child pornographic images on a computer in the home of 46-year-old Richard Wagner.

As the investigation progressed they learned two boys had spent the night at his house unsupervised and one of them said Wagner had abused him.

Pastor Vance Wonser of the Kenai Bible Church says the congregation is shocked and that the accusations do not fit the character of the man they've come to know in the last few years.

He adds Wagner was never alone with children while at the church.

Evidently news of clergy sexual abuse hasn't reached Alaska yet. Who lets kids sleep over at some ministers house???
Their parents should be crucified for their idiocy.
