Anti-gay pastor who said Orlando shooting victims got what they deserved has been arrested for child molestation

Anti-gay pastor who said Orlando shooting victims got what they deserved has been arrested for child molestation

After the massacre of 49 people inside Pulse nightclub in June, Ken Adkins took to Twitter and wrote: ‘I don’t see none of them as victims. I see them as getting what they deserve.’

Now the controversial pastor is getting what law enforcement officials in Georgia say he deserves.

Adkins, 56, has been arrested in Georgia on two counts of child molestation after allegations made by a male from one of his churches was investigated by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Kingsland office and the Brunswick Police Department.

The crimes are alleged to have occurred in 2010, according to Jacksonville.com.

Adkins got attention this year, not only for his tweet after the mass shooting in Orlando, but also for his vigorous opposition to the expansion of the Human Rights Ordinance in Jacksonville, Florida, to include LGBTI people. Adkins donned drag to demonstrate his argument that extending LGBTI protections would allow ‘men dressed as women’ to enter women’s restrooms.

He has said his post-Orlando shooting tweet was not directed at the victims themselves but made because he had ‘been through so much with these Jacksonville homosexuals.’

Adkins’ wife stands by her husband and believes he will be cleared of the charges, even while Adkins remains in Glynn County jail.

    ???? That’s how karma will be opening their nyashes like bread, lining it with butter and serving it up for the inmates in jail.
