In 2017, Santa Rosa County in Florida approved an ordinance allowing for the sale of alcohol on Sundays. But one of the main opponents was William Dalton Milam, the pastor of Olivet Baptist Church in Milton.
Milam clearly didn’t want sin entering his community.
He should’ve been looking in a mirror instead. On Monday, Milam, 62, was arrested on charges of child pornography.
… [Milam] was arrested Monday on two counts of promoting sexual performance of a child and 25 counts of possession of child pornography.
[The Florida Department of Law Enforcement] said agents received a tip about Milam from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which led them to a computer address traced to Milam’s home. Authorities say a search warrant led agents to multiple devices containing child pornography, some depicting children as young as 3 engaged in sex acts.
Disturbing on all levels. With a separate dash of Christian hypocrisy.
I know this isn’t a new kind of story but it’s worth repeating that the same pastors who rail against immorality and indecency are so often guilty of those same “sins.” If anything, they go even further — criminal, in this case — because they make the mistake of putting all sins in the same basket. This man was a monster. Who knows how many children were left alone in his presence, over many years, because he was a Christian pastor?
