Baptist, pastor, and convicted pedophile

BillyMasters It flows together. It comes off the lounge smoothly. It’s like I’ve said hundreds of times before. Billy Master is all three.

A 66-year-old man in DeKalb County is charged with first-degree sexual abuse following an alleged incident involving a 12-year-old boy.

Billy Masters, of Aroney, was reportedly a preacher at Harvest Baptist Church in the Kilpatrick area. The boy was a member of the church congregation.

This isn't the first time Masters has been in trouble with the law for sex charges involving children. He was convicted in 2001 of sodomy.

I have trouble with the facts in this case. Billy Master is a convicted pedophile and yet he was working Baptist pastor. How does this happen? He is a convict and a registered sex offender. What idiot was responsible for his background screening? Or more likely, what idiot hired him despite his background? We will never know. I’m sure they’ve already circled the wagons.
