Indiana pastor solicited gay sex

Indiana pastor solicited gay sex

A southern Indiana minister who preaches against homosexuality was charged with battery this week after he allegedly solicited gay sex at a local park.

Gaylard Williams, pastor of Praise Cathedral Church of God in Seymour, was arrested after a 27-year-old man claimed that the pastor had  grabbed his genitals last week at Cypress Lake.

His church teaches that same-sex marriage is sinful and urges congregants to:

Glorify God in our body and which avoid the fulfillment of the lust of the flesh.

The victim said he was in his car parked at the lake when 59-year-old Williams asked him to roll down his vehicle window. The pastor then reached in, grabbed and squeezed his genitals and offered to perform oral sex.

In this video, Williams' neighbour said 'we are all sinners' but felt the pastor should resign.

The man told the pastor he was “barking up the wrong tree” and acted as if he was reaching for a gun.

He said Williams fled, but he wrote down his license plate number and called the police.

Officers said Williams had “gay adult material” in his vehicle when they stopped him later.

According to TV news report, Williams denied the charge, saying he was only in the park looking for a friend, and that he had only touched the man on his shoulder. As for the porn, he was “taking it back to someone else”.

    Not very imaginative, is he? The louder they howl against gay sex the more they have to hide.

    Is “touch the shoulder” a new euphemism for grabbing a bloke’s nuts? Seems this closet case needs some lessons in physiology.

  3. Trevor Blake says:

    Every Christian knows that clergy who rape children have an easier time than clergy who solicit sex from adults.

    Me, I’d rather have no child rape and no clergy.

    (I love the effortless disdain of the guy with the dark tie when the frustrated loon launches himself at him.)

    If you take a look at the linked parent article you will see that it was just a simple mistake.

    He missed the “L” in the second line of the notice.

    This is a real shock – I’ve never come across such a thing before!

    Of course, some claim that there is circumstantial evidence that Jesus himself was gay:

    @Ivan: Thanks. Are not Christians supposed to be tranquil, turn the other cheek (on their face) and humble. This guy was berserk. Something to hide?

    Once again I’m totally surprised at a minister soliciting not only sex but gay sex, that evil action of satan!!! Shock I am, really shocked!!!

    These busted pastors all use the same book of excuses it seems. Maybe this soon to be inmate failed sex education (or biology) and really thinks a guy’s dick is growing out of his shoulder. He’ll have an interesting time in prison, “lean on me” will take on a whole new complexion.

    Hitchens always provides.

    From King Lear: “Thou rascal beadle, hold thy bloody hand! Why dost thou lash that whore?… Thou hotly lust’st to use her in that kind, for which thou whip’st her.”

    This is why, whenever I hear some bigmouth in Washington or the Christian heartland banging on about the evils of sodomy or whatever, I mentally enter his name in my notebook and contentedly set my watch. Sooner rather than later, he will be discovered down on his weary and well-worn old knees in some dreary motel or latrine, with an expired Visa card, having tried to pay well over the odds to be peed upon by some Apache transvestite.
