Youth pastor Joshua Earls arrested

Baptist youth pastor Joshua Earls was arrested on charges of indecency with a child. Earls is alleged to have forced a girl to touch him while at a hot tub bible study.

In an affidavit, police say during a bible study swim party last April or May, Earls was sitting next to the girl in a hot tub when he grabbed her hand and put it in his swim trunks.

Seriously now Baptists, are hot tub swim parties with teen girls and young youth pastors a good idea?

Earls was employed by Arapaho Baptist Church in Garland until his resignation earlier this year. His brother, Jordan Earls, is also a person of interest in the case. Jordan was adult volunteer at the same church.
