Baptist Music Pastor gets 10 years

Ten years in state prison for a 56 year old man is a long time. David Pierce will live to regret his repeated violation of the children from his youth choir. My guess is Pierce will regret it nightly.

I love this quote from the article

“ ... Even though the number of Southern Baptist ministers who are sexual predators may seem to be relatively small, we must be on watch and take immediate action against those who prey on the most innocent among us,” Chapman said. “One sexual predator in our midst is one too many.”

Morris H. Chapman is president of the Southern Baptist Convention. He knows better than anyone that clergy sexual abuse is an epidemic just as large as the one in the Catholic Church. Why would he spin it like this unless he’s trying to protect the franchise?
