Pastor Joseph Spencer accused

JosephSpencerA Temecula area assistant pastor named Joseph Jermaine Spencer stands accused of rape, oral copulation, and penetration with a foreign object. There victim is a 16-year-old girl. Spencer directed the choir at Mountain View Community Church. The is no mention of Spencer or the abuse charge on the church’s website.
Spencer allegedly picked the victim up from her school and took her back to his apartment were the sexual assault occurred.
The two were lying on a bed watching television when Spencer started kissing the girl’s neck. He then started to undress her and kiss her body. She asked him to stop, but he continued, according to Haddad.
The man performed several sex acts on her as she told him to stop. He finally complied when she told him he was hurting her, Haddad wrote. “The victim was crying,” Haddad wrote in the declaration. “She told Spencer she wanted to leave.”
How is Spencer better than any other predator? If these charges are true, he knew what he was doing was wrong. He knew that it violated everything he believed in and cast his church and his religion in a bad light, yet he did it anyway. When does the magic morality of the bible kick in? After the crime maybe?
