Youth Pastor Michael Anthony arrested

Another youth pastor has been arrested for sex with an underage girl. Youth Pastor Michael Louis Anthony turned himself in Friday.

Michael Louis Anthony was booked into the Cowlitz County Jail Friday for investigation of child molestation, child rape and sexual misconduct with a minor.

The Daily News of Longview reports Anthony told police he and the girl, now 17, had consensual sex too many times to count - in churches, a park and his home.

Pastor Anthony was caught in the act.

Anthony was caught at Gerhart Gardens Park in Longview when a police officer walked up on him and the victim in a parked car. She was partially unclothed and Anthony had no shirt on.

One of the place pastor Anthony allegedly like to rape his 15-year-old victim was the chapel at Calvary Chapel. He apparently took his faith and duties very seriously.

Calvary Chapel fired pastor Anthony back in September so he could work on his marriage. Does that sound suspicious to anyone else?
