The pastor Robert Black paranoia spreads

Two stories that complicate the case for Baptist pastor Robert Black have hit the news. First, parents of 20 children have come forward claiming their young daughters may have communicated with Robert Black as John Still on Facebook. And second, it appears that Robert Black also coached a young girls basketball team.

I expect more of these stories to hit the news over the next few weeks. I have no doubt that some of them will uncover additional questionable activity. What bother me is the damage caused to the young girls in Missouri. At least 20 girls from Facebook and another dozen from a youth basketball league are answering some difficult questions. I count these girls as victims too, even if they were not directly involved.
