Pastor Nathaniel Calhoun of The House of Prayer in Hillsboro was arrested for molesting children at his church.
Calhoun allegedly started sexually assaulting a 12,13, and 16 girl in the 1980's, out of his church on highway 77 in Hill county, in the Tres Vidas community.
The abuse lasted over a 12 to 16 year period, but the girls never came forward then.
"They were talked out of the charges by members of the congregation," Hill County Sheriff Jeffery Lyon said.
“For the good of the church”, whenever you hear these words spoken you should start thinking about saving yourself first.The church they are referring to is one of a million. They are ubiquitous, especially in Texas. It’s a building that houses a few adults who make their living from the believers who attend services. What they are really saying is, “Don’t put us out of a job.”
I hear they want to change the name of the church to the House of Abuse.
