Homophobic pastor in Georgia arrested over abuse allegations

Anti-gay pastor Kenneth Adkins, above, who caused outrage when he celebrated the Pulse club massacre in Orlando earlier this year, has been arrested for molesting an underage boy.

Adkins is a notorious and outspoken opponent of LGBT rights. After 49 people died in the gay bar shooting he he tweeted:
"I don’t see none of them as victims. I see them as getting what they deserve!"

The Savannah Morning News reports that Adkins, 56, is a pastor in Brunswick, Georgia, who doubles as a political consultant in the Jacksonville area.

He turned himself over to Glynn County authorities yesterday morning on charges of aggravated child molestation and child molestation stemming from allegations made by a former member of his congregation.

Said his wife, Charlotte Stormy Adkins:
"We are disappointed with what appears to be a rush to judgment by law enforcement authorities in this case. We are confident that Kenneth Adkins will be found innocent of all charges."

Attorney Kevin Gough, hired to represent Adkins on Thursday, said a bail hearing could be as early as Monday, but a preliminary hearing on the charges likely won’t occur until September 9.

He looks forward to having his day in court.

Stacy Carson, special agent in charge of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Kingsland office, said District Attorney Jackie Johnson asked the GBI on August 12 to assist the Brunswick Police Department in the investigation. It focused on suspected molestation in several locations in the Brunswick area including at Adkins’ church, a vehicle and a victim’s home, Carson said.

The incidents possibly occurred in 2010 and would have had to involve someone younger than 16 for child molestation charges to be brought.
Charlotte Adkins said she and her husband, despite the allegations, share a concern for the mental health of the accuser who the couple has mentored.

This young man was part of our teen ministry. Ken and I have treated him like family, as has our church. He is a deeply troubled young man, to be sure, but our thoughts and prayers remain with him even now.

Adkins has asked to be placed on unpaid leave from The Greater Church Brunswick on Altama Avenue – the Greater Church also has congregations in Jacksonville and Atlanta – while his case is pending. His wife said she will serve as acting pastor.

Adkins is a controversial figure in Jacksonville politics, particularly because of comments and crude caricatures he posted on his Twitter account while he helped lead the fight against expanding Jacksonville’s anti-discrimination law to cover lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

Among the criticisms that Adkins lodged was his assertion that expanding the law would make it easier for sexual predators to find victims in toilets.

His work as a political consultant has been marked by harsh attacks on opponents. In 2012 a Glynn County magistrate ordered Adkins to stop using his Facebook and social media accounts to call a School Board member “a fool” or a “runaway slave.” The order also barred Adkins from using the term “child molester” without proof when criticising a worker for two local campaigns.

Only time will tell if the allegations are true or made up.
