Youth pastor Carl Lloyd III arrested

Carl_LlyodIIISodomy is such a harsh word. Youth pastor Carl Lloyd III stands accused of sodomizing a 15-year-old girl from his youth group.

..the investigation began several months ago after a mother “reported possible wrongdoing” with a 15-year-old female member of the Son Rise Baptist Church in Hartselle.

…the investigation revealed an inappropriate sexual relationship between the teenager and her youth pastor over a period from 2009 through 2010 at his residence

But don’t worry folks, it does not look like the sodomy took place at the church. Move along now, there is no problem at the church – except for the whole youth pastor raping children thing. Don’t worry though. Our next pastor won't rape your kids because he’s a man of God.

The pastor of Son Rise Baptist church released the following statement:

"We are extremely brokenhearted over this situation. With the Lord's help, we are trying to heal as a Church family and move forward with the Lord's work. We are praying for all families involved and ask that you would pray for our church, as well during this time. We are cooperating fully with the Morgan Co. Sheriffs Dept. during their investigation. But at this time, we are not at liberty to comment."
