Pastor Ken Adkins runs three congregations in Georgia. He’s a well-known figure in the area, in no small part because of his outspoken dislike and outright phobia of the LGBT community. Here is the Lord’s chosen one talking about the massacre of 49 people at the Pulse club in Orlando.
“Been through so much with these Jacksonville Homosexuals that I don’t see none of them as victims. I see them as getting what they deserve!”
Mr. Adkins is facing two charges of child molestation now.
One of the two charges against the 56-year-old is aggravated child molestation, said Stacy Carson, special agent in charge of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's Kingsland office.
District Attorney Jackie Johnson asked the GBI on Aug. 12 to assist the Brunswick Police Department in an investigation of an accusation of child molestation against Adkins, Carson said. The investigation focused on suspected molestation in several locations in the Brunswick area including at Adkins’ church, a vehicle and a victim’s home, Carson said. The investigation is ongoing.
Here’s Ken Adkins’ attorney, Kevin Glough.
Glough said that the charges seemed suspicious and he was confident Adkins would be cleared.
“Warrants say that these events took place in 2010 and that’s a long time. We don't know why they’re coming up now,” Glough said. “We’d like to think that these charges or their timing isn’t politically motivated, we’d certainly hope not and we’re not saying they are. But given his past and his very vocal public positions on various issues, it’s obviously a concern.”
I won’t rush to judgement here, lest I be judged myself.
