I woke up this morning to start my normal weekend process of collecting stories religious hypocrisy and found that I had not posted the stories from last weekend. I’m losing it.

New cases

Pastor Jules Anderson, was arrested for the second time for attempting lewd acts with a 16-year-old boy. His first arrest made CoH #1.

Pastor Honore Kombo was removed as pastor at St. Augustin Church in Seymour. The Archdiocese of Hartford removed the Kombo after alleging he stole from the parish.

Updates and interesting stories
