It’s been a while since I wrote a TransGriot Perv Watch post, and this one is too delicious and chock full of schadenfreude to not talk about another #stillnottrans anti-trans hypocrite.
If you were keeping your eye on what happened earlier this year in Jacksonville, FL when they tried literally a month after HERO went down in right wing instigated flames and failed to pass an HRO amendment that added sexual orientation and gender identity that , you would have heard me mention the name of Kenneth Adkins.
Adkins was the Brunswick, GA based megachurch pastor who was meddling in Jacksonville human rights businessas the out of town frontman for the white evangelicals and GOP activists opposing the Jacksonville HRO. He helped stir up so much negativity about the HRO that the Jacksonville City Council caved and pulled it in February.
Adkins also declared in the wake of the Pulse nightclub mass shooting in Orlando that the ‘homosexuals got what they deserved’.
Thanks to a tip from one of my longtime TransGriot readers in Brenda Lunger, I was pointed to this story on the ‘Joe My God’ blog that announced the arrest of Adkins this morning by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI).
The 56 year old pastor is cooling his heels in the Glynn County Jail after turning himself at 9 AM EDT this morning. He is accused of one count of aggravated child molestation and another count of
child molestation that allegedly occurred in 2010 in a vehicle, his church, and the victim’s home.
The investigation according to a GBI press release and reporting from the Florida Times-Union is ongoing.
And we’ll be watching to see how it turns out.
