It’s not just the Catholics . . .
A Plano megachurch minister was taken into custody Thursday after authorities say he drove to Bryan, Texas, to have sex with a person he thought to be a 13-year-old.
Joe Barron, a minister at Prestonwood Baptist Church, is accused of online solicitation of a minor.
According to Bryan police, Mr. Barron had chatting for about two weeks with the person that he thought to be a juvenile. “The online conversations were sexually explicit in nature,” the release said.
On Tuesday, Mr. Barron asked if the girl could meet him in person, police said. Two days later, he made the three-hour drive to Bryan to meet the girl.
And as my blogging buddy Barry stated on his blog, Prestonwood has already removed him from their website but the Google cache tells you his job title was Minister of Married Adult III.
For those of you unfamiliar with the church, it isÂ HUGE.Â Check out the Wikipedia entry on it.Â Speaking of which, I’m a little surprised Wikipedia isn’t updated with this latest news.
