Pastoring to Police

Because every stressed-out cop needs a good hummer sermon:

A pastor who has spoken out against homosexuality was arrested after propositioning a male undercover police officer outside a hotel, authorities said.

As the Rev. Lonnie Latham, 59, left jail Wednesday, he said “I was set up. I was in the area pastoring to police.”
The good reverend, who was charged with “offering to engage in an act of lewdness,” is not just a small-town Oklahoma minister, but is, in fact, a member of the Southern Baptist Convention's executive committee.

Latham has supported a convention directive urging members to befriend gays and lesbians and try to convince them that they can become heterosexual “if they accept Jesus Christ as their savior and reject their 'sinful, destructive lifestyle.'”
Befriend…blow…it’s easy to get confused.
