The words of a fool

Pastor Randy Meadows is a fool for allowing a registered sex offender the chance to become a ordained minister. You can watch the foolishness here.

Mark Hourigan sodomized and sexually abused an 11-year-old boy. City of Refuge Church is taking a huge risk by allowing him on the property, but to employee him is insanity. If Hourigan wants to serve, let him work in a soup kitchen. Pastor Meadows thinks he’s doing Gods work. When Hourigan abuses again, I sure hope he is held accountable.

Hourigan served time in prison and upon release agreed not to have contact with children as a condition of probation. Now Hourigan’s probation is over, though his need to register as a sex offender never ends. According to a former church deacon, Hourigan was never open about his past until he was confronted.

Nevertheless, Pastor Randy Meadows claims Hourigan has changed and deserves forgiveness.
“As a society we can’t forget,“ said Pastor Randy Meadows. “ We can’t move on. And I preach in this church to try to allow god to move you on to a better life.“ Meadows said the Lord has touched Hourigan’s heart.

By the way, all of this is based on one and a half years of good behavior. Besides… Hourigan completed sex offender training, so that makes him safe.
