Texas. Megachurch. Pastor. Chat Room.

... you know the next several words and phases in the too familiar sequence: sexual solicitation, minor, predator, sting, Dateline, Chris Hansen. Family Values. "I was just going to talk to her." Of course you were:

A minister from a Dallas-area Baptist megachurch was caught in an Internet sex sting and charged with online solicitation of a minor, police said Friday.

Undercover officers posing as a 13-year-old girl communicated with Joe Barron, 52, of Plano for about two weeks. The online conversations were sexual in nature, police said.

On May 6, Barron suggested meeting the girl in person. He eventually made the nearly 200-mile drive to Bryan on Thursday, when he was arrested. Police said they found a web-cam and condoms in his car.
The next word: hypocrisy. It's the endlessly repeated news story that just keeps writing itself over and over from one day to the next. At least some small fraction of these fucktards are being exposed and suspended from their pastoring duties.
