Oh well. Ho Hum. Another pastor is getting his jollies through a hidden camera in the women’s bathroom. “He’s a good man,” the church leaders said. He is currently on leave from his church – with or without pay is not known – but the damage he has done to all Christianity cannot take a leave.
Two women and a young girl were shown on the tape as they used the bathroom in the Sunrise Christian Reformed Church in Lafayette, Indiana. This pervert had put small cameras in the air fresheners located inside the stalls. I am not sure what kind of air fresheners the church will have to use to get rid of the odor of this soiled pastor.
Have you ever read a story of a female pastor putting hidden cameras in bathrooms to spy on men, or young boys? Have you ever read of a story of a woman pastor molesting young boys?
Yet women cannot be put in authority over a man.
The Sunrise Christian Reformed Church has taken down its website, and I am sure the majority of those people are as upset as I am about this disrespect of the congregation’s women. What will they do? Will they write the headquarters of their denomination to express their outrage? Who in the church will censure this person?
My guess is – nobody. There is nobody among Baptists who would, or did, censure their own Sammy Nuckolls ,the Southern Baptist evangelist, former camp pastor at Life Way FUGE summer camps who had a great following, and who put a tiny camera in a fake writing pen and left it in the bathroom before the woman of the house went in to take a shower. Update on story. “Every time I was with him at a camp, every time I heard him speak, his message was right,” Adam Fisher told WMC-TV. But his heart was rotten because as we read in the story “One of the women prepared to testify against Nuckolls in Mississippi told WMC-TV in Memphis that she was shocked to discover that Nuckolls, whom she and her husband considered a close friend, had been secretly filming her since the very first time she visited his home five-and-a-half years earlier.” Betrayal.
We have put the fox in charge of the henhouse.
What do you think should be done to censure this pastor? Should there be some kind of oversight group within denominations, or should this be a civil case only? What should women do when a pastor, any pastor, abuses the trust placed in them, and photographs women in the bathroom?
