Another perv pastor
The list keeps on growing, this one’s out of Ohio…
The leader of a Springfield Township church lost his job on Sunday after he was arrested on charges of molesting a 13-year-old girl. The Rev. Ronald D. Love faces as long as 18 months in jail if he is convicted of gross sexual imposition.
Love, 50, was the minister at Carthage Baptist Church on Seymour Avenue.
…Love gave a taped statement admitting to fondling the girl on several occasions from January to April this year, the arrest report states.
The church official said Love submitted his resignation Saturday after his arrest. Church leaders accepted it.
On Sunday the church began their search for a replacement for Love. Carthage Baptist Church has about 300 members and has struggled in recent years to maintain that membership. The church official, who asked not to be named, said he hopes the news of Love’s arrest doesn’t hurt efforts to increase church membership.
Hat tip, Holly.
