In today’s ‘good Christian’ news…
Timothy Lee Reddin, a 67-year-old pastor at Turner Street Baptist Church in Fayetteville, Arkansas, loves to get riled up and shriek about the evils of homosexuality from the pulpit.
You know what’s coming now, right?
Reddin was arrested on August 3 after chatting up what he believed was a 14-year-old boy on a ‘dating site.’
Reddin’s problem is the young boy was in reality an undercover cop posing as a teen in a sting operation.
Reddin setup a ‘meeting’ with the teen for sex. But when he showed up at the meeting spot, he was met by officers.
“Lee” described himself in his profile as a 62-year-old white male, 6’1″, 215 pounds and married. The profile description said, “I just wanna have fun…I like younger guys. But hell, at my age that’s just about everybody! Discreet, intelligent, witty, professional guy. Love to meet new friends. Especially naked ones,” according to the affidavit.
Married for almost 50 years with 4 grown children and 7 grandchildren, Reddin was booked in his local jail where he was charged with attempted coercion and enticement of a minor.
But wait – there’s more!
Reddin was busted and convicted in 2000 for possession of child pornography eventually spending 27 months in prison and registering as a sex offender after being released.
