Arkansas pastor convicted of having child porn in 2000 faces new charge

The question here is: Why was this man still the pastor of a church in the first place? He doesn't seem too bright, either.

Arkansas pastor convicted of having child porn in 2000 faces new charge of attempted coercion, enticement of minor

An Arkansas pastor and part-time college instructor was arrested last week after trying to meet with who he thought was a teenage boy, filings show.

Timothy Lee Reddin, 67, of Fayetteville faces one count of attempted coercion and enticement of a minor, according to records filed Friday in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas.

Reddin is listed as a pastor at Turner Creek Baptist Church in Springdale. He also worked as a part-time history instructor at Springdale-based Ecclesia College, according to a faculty directory.

On July 27, an undercover agent with the Department of Homeland Security received an “unprovoked private message” from someone with a username of “Lee" on a website. "Lee," later identified by authorities as Reddin, described himself as a “college teacher and a businessman.”

2. Why evangelicals support Trump

They see themselves in the orange one.

3. I doubt that this has anything to do with Trump.

It was going on long before he came on the scene, and will continue long after he's gone.

4. My point

Evangelicals have been reprobates since, like ever. That's why they love Trump. He's one of them.

5. That's peripheral to my post's point.

Way out in left field, actually. I'm not writing about politics in this group, but about the abuse of some religious leaders and their hypocrisy.

Trump isn't part of any of that.
