For the record, I do not wish for Jack Schaap to be raped in prison. I don’t wish that on anybody. I do hope that justice is served and that it drives this arrogant, selfish man to repentance.
And let us all take heed to ourselves lest we likewise be tempted to lust and avarice.
In 2011 Clarence Sexton went to Pastor’s school at FBC Hammond and showered the church and now-disgraced pastor Jack Schaap with praise.
In 2013 Clarence Sexton is not only on the list of speakers who will be preaching at Bob Jones University’s Bible conference, he’s speaking twice and closing out the conference.
Now stop and consider that BJU would NEVER have someone from a “liberal” denomination or even a leader in the Southern Baptist Convention come to speak at their school because of their huge emphasis on “separation.” Yet, apparently, somebody who merely loves and preaches for a school that is embroiled in abuse, scandal, and horrifying theology is ok since at least those people are still Independent Baptists.
As I have said many times before, the lunatic fringe of fundamentalism is never quite as far away from the “normal” fundamentalists as they would love for you to believe. In fact, if Clarence Sexton is any measure, they’re not different at all.
With Jack Schaap scheduled to be sentenced next week it may be worth the time to look back at the history of Hyles-Anderson and FBC Hammond to when the other Jack ruled supreme.
Schaap’s family leaves the courthouse…in open-toed shoes.
I suppose that once you’ve started sleeping with minors it damages the credibility of your rants against toe cleavage.
