A Baptist repeat offender

williamCabe Rev. Johnny William “Bill” Cabe was arrested for allegedly molesting an 11-year-old boy. Pastor Bill Cabe did so while playing doctor. Cabe is a Baptist. Why is this important? Baptists have no central authority governing their churches. As a result, convicted felons find an easy home. Like pastor Bill Cabe. He was convicted for stealing $8 million from church goers. Yet he found a job as a pastor while on supervised release from prison.

Federal prosecutors who proved The Rev. Johnny William "Bill" Cabe swindled churchgoers out of more than $8 million have confirmed they know Cabe was arrested on new charges.

They have not said, however, whether the federal government will seek to terminate Cabe's supervised release - the federal equivalent of probation.

Why did Riverside Baptist Church in Rock Hill hire him? I’m sure it had something to do with “restoration”, or more likely, they simply did not check his record.
