Pastor Lawrence Smith Denies Sex Charges

Pastor Smith stands accused of Criminal Sexual Conduct With a Minor in the Second Degree, Lewd Act Upon a Child, and Assault and Battery of a High and Aggravated Nature. Yikes! that sounds serious. I wonder what Pastor Smith has to say about the charges?

Pastor Smith: "Oh, I feel betrayed, Jesus was betrayed. He's still being betrayed, so it ain't nothing new...ain't a thing. Now, and it's going to get worse and worse.

Pastor Smith: "He says your trouble starts at home. He says they're going to cast your name out for evil. You're going to be persecuted from city to city. He says they're going to do all amounts of evil against you."

So... What the hell does all that mean? Is THE MAN out to get you? What a nutball.

Pastor Smith runs a small storefront church. Make no mistake here, this man exists on the margins and feeds on his own flock.

This is really horrible, but the story doesn't mention the gender of the victims. Of course, regardless of their sex it would be an awful crime, but considering he's a Christian sex offender, I figure it must be with boys. Please, prove me wrong Pastor!

The advantage of being a clergyman is that you never have to take personal responsibility for your actions.
