Actually, Nick, if you’ve been reading the news the last few years you would realize these perverts come from every denomination and sect. Seems to be a huge problem within the Christian community as a whole. This god you worship doesn’t seem to care about the well being of children in your churches at all. Maybe it’s time you gave up believing in the invisible man in the sky.

Atheists know we came about through the process of evolution. Evolution is not an accident, it is a natural occurrence. Come on, embrace your inner ape.

With God, sin is sin. There is no big sin and little sin. It’s all judged equally in God’s eyes. His ways are not our ways.

God will not allow sin to enter heaven. So without repentance, someone who lies will go to hell just as quickly as someone who murders.

There is only one unforgivable sin, and that is blaspheming against the Holy Spirit. Speaking against the Holy Spirit is equivalent to rejecting Jesus Christ with such finality that no future repentance is possible.

The problem isn’t just in the “Christian community as a whole”; it’s everywhere in the world. People only notice it more when it involves a pastor in the church.

There are bad people everywhere, even in church. The Bible is full of “church people” who sinned against God.

God cares very much about the well being of the children in His church, and everywhere else. That’s why He exposes bad people and points a spotlight on them. He’s cleaning His church.
