Megachurch Minister Caught in Molestation Sting

...and in other news, the sky is blue.

Rev Joe Barron borrowed his wife's car and drove 200 miles to meet what he thought was a thirteen year old girl. Instead, he was greeted by the police, who had been working a chat-room sting. Barron claimed he only wanted to buy the girl a soda. Funny, when I want to buy a soda, I generally don't even need 1 condom, much less 10.

I can't say that I'm surprised that another evangelical minister has been nabbed for the same deviance that he decried from the pulpit on Sundays. This sort of thing is all too commonly the result of the sexual repression that most religions demand of their followers (and their clerics: yes, I'm looking at you, Benedict).
