Comment of the Day: Preachers Raping Children

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We wrote about a 68-year-old East Texas preacher accused of continuing to rape a 12-year-old church member, and how the girl's parents have been arrested in connection with the incident.

That tripped a few triggers.

i really hate it when people use God or a position in religion to gain trust and access to children. and then it makes it worse when stupid little sheep just follow what they say and think " it can't possibly be morally wrong. he talks about God every Sunday." Please! just because youre in a garage doesn't make you a car. just because someone is in church or claims to be christian doesn't mean they are. Hes just a guy that talks about Jesus. He not jesus! Duh! Wake up! some of these MFers are SICK! Put your children first! stupid blind sheep!
