Jamaican Pastor Faces deportation after rape conviction

Children are often times told not to trust ANYONE by their parents.

In the world we are living today, parents have every right and should train their children not to devote complete trust to anyone.

Sadly many times when children are molested or abused physically, it is by people who are deemed trustworthy by their guardians.

According to a report by the Jamaica Observer: A former New York minister who is from Jamaica has pleaded guilty to raping two teenage girls, one of whom belonged to his congregation.
