|Married Youth Pastor|
"The abuse started with secret text messages which led to a sexual relationship between a teenager and married youth pastor."
In the mid 1970’s I had a fellow classmate who was an assistant pastor of an upstate South Carolina Baptist church. It so happen that one summer the church was planning a week long youth camp in the Blue Ridge Mts. My pastor friend told me about a phone conversation he had with the mother of a teenage girl who wanted to attend the church camp which was under the direction of a new youth minister.
As I recall, the phone conversation went something like this:
Mother: What kind of youth minister is Rev. Ted?
Assistant Pastor: Rev. Ted is an excellent leader who loves working with youth.
Mother: No, I want to know how Rev. Ted is with the girls?
Assistant Pastor: Rev. Ted is excellent with young women and is a great spiritual leader.
Mother: Damn it! I want to know if Rev. Ted can keep his peker in his pants?!
