More Youth Pastors Are Nabbed for Sexual Assaults on Children

More competition for Catholic priests:

A 27-year-old man has been accused of sexually abusing two teenage boys during his time as a youth pastor at a Hillsboro [Oregon] church, police say.

Dylan Ritterman was arrested Dec. 18 on allegations he “unlawfully touched” two boys, said Lt. Mike Rouches, a spokesman with the Hillsboro Police Department. The boys were 14 or 15 at the time, he said.

Ritterman was a youth pastor at Bethel United Pentecostal Church, Rouches said. At least one incident is believed to have occurred in a room at the church and at least one other in a car after Ritterman drove a boy home, he said.

And, in Arkansas,

A Hot Springs youth pastor was arrested for the rape of a 13-year-old girl.

The victim confirmed that Andrew Lee Jackson, 28, was her youth pastor at her church.

In a police report, the victim stated that she and Jackson engaged in sexual intercourse five different times at his residence that he shared with his wife. …

Earlier this month, police reportedly found inappropriate text messages on the victim’s phone between the two.

As is true for their child-raping brethren, a lifetime of Bible readin’ and testifyin’ wasn’t enough to dissuade these men from attempting to bless children with their saintly cocks.
