Yeah, that seems about right.

Courtesy of ABC News:

A former Southern Baptist pastor who supported legislation in Texas that would have criminalized abortions has been arrested on charges of child sex abuse, accused of repeatedly molesting a teenage relative over the course of two years.

Stephen Bratton is accused of subjecting the relative to inappropriate touching that escalated to “sexual intercourse multiple times a day or several times a week” from 2013 to 2015, according to Thomas Gilliland, a spokesman with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

Court records show Bratton, 43, posted a $50,000 bond Saturday, The Houston Chronicle reported .

Bratton told his wife about the abuse in May, and admitted to his co-pastors at Grace Family Baptist Church that same day that he had “sinned in grievous ways,” according to court documents.

……….

Bratton, who is a father of seven, was outspoken in support of a Texas bill that would have abolished abortions and charged women with homicide if they underwent the procedure. That level of offense can be punishable by the death penalty under Texas law.

Bratton publicly testified in support of the bill in April. The measure never got a vote.

“Whoever authorizes or commits murder is guilty,” Bratton said at the hearing. “They’re guilty already in a court that is far more weighty than what is here in Texas.”

This guy did not sin in “grievous ways” he committed a fucking crime against a child and needs to be thrown into prison.

I don’t care if his god, his wife, or his congregation forgive him.

He needs to pay for his crime. 

Why does it always seem that these assholes who want to throw women in jail for controlling their own bodies never seem to have any control over their own?

    Chemical castration does not address the root causes of sexual violence.

    “In the same way that removing the hands of a bread thief could theoretically help prevent future crimes, rendering a person’s genitals less virile makes certain acts less feasible. But unlike other therapeutic approaches, chemical castration (or surgical castration, for that matter) does not address the antisocial instincts that often underlie such crimes.” — James Hamblin, The Atlantic

      Yeah, I’m sure before too long these Baptist assholes will be trying to say the sleazy 14 year old girl had been trying to seduce him and had forced herself onto him. People like him make me wish there really was a hell.

    You just KNOW that if he had gotten that child pregnant he would have tried to get her a secret abortion to cover up his crimes.
    THAT is who these people ARE.

      Yep! This is who they are. Chemical castration is too good for this sick behavior.

    Alex Jones’ lawyers accidentally sent child porn to the Sandy Hook parents’ lawyers. It was embedded in a large volume of email documents a judge ordered Jones’ team to turn over.

    Man, it doesn’t get any better than this.

    Jones is THROUGH!

    Do any clergy not have sex with kids??

    Any parent or caretaker that takes their kids to church, and/or leaves their kids with any Christians, is enmeshed and enabling and endorsing harm to children, and must have their kids taken away.
    Christianity is a filthy dangerous thing. All it does is indoctrinate kids with sex. Its an organization comprised of pedofiles and those that support pedofilia.
    If you are under 17yrs 364days old or less – run to the nearest fire station (or safe station) and demand safety from the CULT OF EVIL HARMERS known as Christianity, your life depends on it. The cult wants your soul, GET OUT NOW!!!!! BYE JESUS, BUH BYE!!!!/
