More Immoral Behavior From the Pulpit

Texas Megachurch Minister Busted in Internet Sex Sting

A minister from a Dallas-area Baptist megachurch was caught in an Internet sex sting and charged with online solicitation of a minor, police said Friday.

Undercover officers posing as a 13-year-old girl communicated with Joe Barron, 52, of Plano for about two weeks. The online conversations were sexual in nature, police said.

On May 6, Barron suggested meeting the girl in person. He eventually made the nearly 200-mile drive to Bryan on Thursday, when he was arrested. Police said they found a web-cam and condoms in his car.

Yet another story of lewd and licentious behavior from the clergy. If religion is the foundation for morality, then why such immorality among its leadership? Maybe the initial assumption is wrong and instead morality is one of the foundations of religion (another being untestable supernaturalism).

You know, maybe if unbelievers never committed any crimes, your rant would be justified. As it stands now, remove the plank.

Religious fundamentalists are the ones claiming to be the sole proprietors of morale behavior. Ken Ham and his kind will tell you that immorality results from non-belief in God. Ben Stein tells us that Darwinism paved the way to the holocaust. However, atheists don't lay claim to the moral high ground, unlike their faithful counterparts. So it becomes news when the morally righteous commit immoral and indecent acts.

As long as they keep up with their 'more human than you' (aka 'holier than thou') attitude, I'll keep pinging away at them.
