August is the month that keeps on giving for allegations of clergy sexual abuse. Pastor Johnny William Cabe was arrested for an alleged inappropriate relationship with an 11-year-old boy. The allegation go back to December of 2008, which makes the victim very young indeed. Cabe says he was diagnosing a medial problem, except he’s not a doctor.
The unlawfully practicing medicine charge stems from allegations Cabe performed an examination of the child, diagnosed a physical ailment and prescribed a treatment, according to an arrest warrant. Baker declined to provide further details.
Cabe also gave the boy a cell phone and told him to keep it quiet. That sounds like grooming behavior to me. I think we have another alleged pedopastor. Did I mention that he is a Baptist? No? Well he is a pastor at of Riverside Baptist Church in Rock Hill.
