I want to give people the benefit of the doubt. I want to think that a pastor who works at a church named after MLK is a good man. But then I read a headline like this: Man accused of assaulting student also a minister. But wait, there is more.The student, and nine year old girl, is mentally disabled. And, pastor Givens was recently profiled in the Racine newspaper as a role model for others. This story is going to end badly.
Givens is pastor of Martin Luther King Church of Christ, 1131 Douglas Ave., according to the Insider News article and ads the church ran with the publication. Numbers listed in the church's ads and on a sign on the building did not work. One number had a recorded message that it did not accept incoming calls, and all other numbers were disconnected.
Geez – you really can’t trust anyone these days. Go ahead. Tell me he was framed. I can’t wait to hear this story.
