Texas minister caught in Internet sex sting

Another Baptist pastor goes down in flames. This time Joe Barron though he was setting up a little meet & screw with a 13-year-old girl. It turned out to be a cop. Barron happens to be a pastor at the largest Baptist church in the country.

A minister at a Dallas-area megachurch was charged with online solicitation of a minor after police said Friday he was caught in an Internet sex sting...

...Barron is a minister at Prestonwood Baptist Church, one of the largest churches in the country with 26,000 members and 40 ministers.

The official story is that Prestonwood did not realize Barron had any kind of problem. One would hope they did a good background check.
