Pastor Howard Shockey arrested

Pastor Howard Shockey was indicted for possession of child pornography. That can’t be good. Nope, that sounds downright unchristian. I bet he was only faking it and not really a “true Christian.”

He was a pastor of the Church of Brethren Church in Girard, where he served almost seven years, and was chaplain of the Pleasant Hill Nursing Home in Girard. He has been terminated from both positions, officials said Thursday.

The indictment alleges that Shockey was seen viewing child pornography on a computer by a staff member of the nursing home. The staff member filed a complaint the following day with Girard Police Chief David Campbell. Girard is in Macoupin County.

Lead a church for 7 years and one sneak peak at child porn brings it all crumbling down. Why do people do this? Why do people do it in places where other people can catch them? With child porn, the fed don’t mess around either. Pastor Shocky is looking at a long time in prison.

This comment was aimed at me.

I certainly don't condone what this man is accused of, but "let he who is without sin cast the first stone". I know there will be plenty of potential "stone throwers" posting their rants against Christians because of the fall of this one man

I live a in a brick and mortar house. Through all the stones you want.
