Yet another Medgachurch leader has taken the phrase “get ‘em while they’re young” a bit too literally:
BRYAN, Texas (May 17) – 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.
Whenever someone tells me that absent a belief in God I have no basis for my morality I always have to wonder why it is that so many of those who do have said belief are so lacking in morality themselves.
