If you're planning on attending church at the SOUTH TULSA BAPTIST CHURCH today, you will find that today's services are conducted by a guest preacher.

Pastor who preached against gays arrested on lewdness charge

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A pastor who has spoken out against homosexuality was arrested after propositioning a male undercover police officer outside a hotel, authorities said.

As the Rev. Lonnie Latham, 59, left jail Wednesday, he said "I was set up. I was in the area pastoring to police."

EXCUSE ME Lonnie, but offering an undercover cop twenty bucks to suck his dick is not pastoring. I would call that propositioning!

Latham, a member of the Southern Baptist Convention's executive committee, was arrested Tuesday and charged with offering to engage in an act of lewdness, Capt. Jeffrey Becker said.

Calls to Latham and his South Tulsa Baptist Church were not returned for comment.

Latham has supported a convention directive urging members to befriend gays and lesbians and try to convince them that they can become heterosexual "if they accept Jesus Christ as their savior and reject their sinful, destructive lifestyle."

The Southern Baptist Convention is the nation's largest Protestant denomination.

sounds like the jimmy swaggert story... maybe he was just trying to befriend the cop (in a biblical way) ;-)

I read this the other day and just laughed and laughed.

Those baptist boys must not be getting it at home!

Happy Sunday DD!


I guess being on your knees constitutes "ministering." Who knew.
