Re: UPCI Church fires youth pastor

Interesting that you posted this.

Just listened to a conference where they had a panel discuss this very topic. This sexual abuse topic has become so prevalent in organized religion that the UPCI has created a task force or special office that deals with this very topic. One of the panel members said that whether it was just in the UPCI or he was stating all organized religion that they had over 700 cases last year alone.

What do you think is the reason for the uptick in such actions especially among the ministry? My goodness the Catholic Church dealt with their molestation of little boys, and now we’re seeing this behavior becoming a common news story among the apostolic/pentecostals.

I’ve heard of Lanny Wolfe. And it goes back much further than Lanny Wolfe.

In fact I’ve only heard the gossip about Lanny Wolfe. But, there is a saying about smoke and fire. I’m not sure what the truth is, or was.

Charles Parham was accused of "unnatural activities" in Texas but never prosecuted. That was back in the early 1900s. Not sure if it was anti Pentecostal propaganda or something else. He apparently had some connections with the local good ole boys' clubs so could have gotten things quashed. Who knows?

I think Parham was arrested.

It is my understanding that he was arrested and charged, but not convicted. There was a huge campaign to defame him but it is not clear to me if it was justified. His explanation did seem to be peculiar though.

It may just seem because the world we live in and the fact so many have their heads in their phones and addicted to social media, that they post everything they do during the day. That we’re hearing more about sexual assault in Pentecostal and Apostolic ranks. I mean for the UPCI to now have a task force to help prevent this atrocity, obviously they have influx of these problems. Question is, is it happening now more than before and if so, why? Social media?
