So let's get this straight: Some jackass who can't keep his John Thomas in his trousers and who just happens to be a Protestant pastor is a reason "why Christianity is the wrong path"? What about the terrible record of abuse in the Orthodox Jewish community? What about the fact that there is a greater percentage of lawyers and doctors who abuse minors than religious clergy or any sort? And what of the fact that any true Christian -- Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox -- would condemn what this cretin did because it totally goes against Scripture, not to mention Tradition?

Your posting this shows a tremendous a) an in ability to make intellectual distinctions; b) lack of intellectual honesty; c) a very well-honed ability to smear by association with ad hominem attacks; d) all of the above. Take your pick.

This isn't to say you can't make intellectual arguments against Christianity (although they're typically easily refuted, in my experience). It is to say that if you're a person of good will, you'll do so in a spirit of intellectual honesty and not sink to this level, which is, really, unworthy of you or anyone with any degree of intelligence. Regardless (and I mean this sincerely), be assured of my prayers for blessings to rain down upon you, and I humbly ask that you return that favor for me.

In Christ,

Sorry for the typo above. It should read, "a) a tremendous inability ..."
