Pastor Who Said Pulse Nightclub Victims Deserved Death Gets Life Sentence for Child Molestation

Days after the massacre at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Georgia Pastor Kenneth Adkins tweeted that he had “been through so much with these Jacksonville Homosexuals that I don’t see none of them as victims. I see them as getting what they deserve!!”

He later said he was referring only to local citizens who were advocating for anti-discrimination laws, but even if you give him that benefit of the doubt, that tweet and others were very clearly anti-gay and hardly sympathetic toward the victims of the shooting. He wanted the ability to discriminate against LGBT Americans, all in the name of Jesus. Because he’s a devout Christian, and that’s what Good Christians do.

Well, wouldn’t you know it, last August, Adkins was arrested for multiple charges of child molestation.

Earlier this month, a jury found him guilty on eight separate counts of the crime (the lurid details of which are at that link).

And yesterday, the 57-year-old Adkins was handed a sentence that will effectively keep him in jail for the rest of his life.

Adkins’ sentencing states he must serve a minimum of 35 years in prison, with the rest served on probation. He also faces up to 20 years for every additional charge, all to run concurrently.

Look at that. I guess karma is real.

Good riddance. We need far more protection from pastors like him than LGBT people.
