Multi-tasking Florida pastor arrested for watching kiddy porn while writing an Easter sermon

PASTOR Cedric Eugene Cuthbert of St James African Methodist Episcopal Church in Sanford was arrested last week  for watching child porn on his work computer at a Disney resort.

Cuthbert, according to this report, was allegedly alternating between writing his Easter sermon and watching videos of young girls engaged in graphic sex acts while working the night shift at the resort.

Disney’s monitoring system takes screen shots of employee computers every three seconds and recorded Cuthbert writing his church sermon on John chapter 13 verses 1-35 and Psalm 148 while loading pornographic YouTube videos involving teenage girls.

WFTV was at the jail when Cuthbert posted bail and was released last Thursday morning. Cuthbert would not comment when asked:

Pastor, what do you have to say about you actions?

Cuthbert, 49, faced a judge on charges of soliciting a child for unlawful sexual conduct and possession of a sexual performance by a child.

He was employed at Disney World’s Port Orleans Resort as a housekeeping manager for more than seven years but has since been sacked.

On April 24, Disney’s computer software alerted authorities that Cuthbert was allegedly looking at young girls performing sex acts on YouTube and asking them for more material.

Members of the church were said to be “floored” when they found out he’d been accused of looking at child porn online.

Neighbor Shirlene Smith was shocked:

You’ve got to be kidding. And his wife is a minister, too.

Cuthbert’s wife, who is an executive minister at the church on Cyprus Street, wouldn’t answer the door to reporters.

Investigators said Cuthbert communicated with underage girls through YouTube, sending messages like, “You are so cute! Keep makin’ vids!”

Last Wednesday night, the pastor’s church posted on their Facebook page that they wouldn’t tolerate any more negative posts connected with the incident.

It’s unclear if Cuthbert’s victims could have stretched to his congregation as well, said WFTV. A church representative said it will be dealt with, but as of Wednesday the church still listed Cuthbert as senior minister on its website.

WFTV found out the pastor had interaction with kids, not only through his church and job, but also his children’s Cub Scouts programme.
