Report: Black Pastor Arrested Of Sexually Assaulting Teen While White Pastor Accused Of Similar Crime Receives Standing Ovation
Fix It Jesus!

A North Carolina pastor and a Tennessee pastor were both accused of sexual assault. However, the black pastor is behind bars while the white pastor received a standing ovation from the congregation. Talk about double standards!

The pastor from North Carolina, Glenn Tyrone Collins, is accused of sexually assaulting four children over the course of 13 years.

Collins turned himself into police on Monday, after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

The abuse allegedly began in 1996, but officials started investigating the allegations after one of Collins’ accusers recently came forward.


Collins faces more than 130 charges related to the allegations, according to court records. The charges include several counts of first-degree rape of a child.


Collins insists he is innocent of the charges. He said in court, "I’m not guilty of any of this stuff. I own property. I’m a pillar of the community and I don’t deserve this."

Collins' situation is very different from that of a Memphis  megachurch pastor, who actually received a standing ovation from the congregation after he admitted to a 'sexual incident' with a high school student 20 years ago in Texas.

The pastor, Andy Savage, made the admission after a woman accused him of sexually assaulting her in 1998 when she was 17 and he was the youth minister at a suburban Houston church. 




He reportedly offered to drive Jules Woodson home from church but first took her to a wooded area off a dirt road and had her perform oral sex on him


Savage told the congregation at Highpoint Church that he had sinned, taken responsibility for it and never kept it a secret from church leaders. 


During the church service, Savage said, "Until now, I did not know there was unfinished business with Jules. I am deeply sorry for my actions 20 years ago. I remain committed to cooperate with you toward forgiveness and healing."

Church members stood and applauded Savage afterwards.


What do you think about this sickening double standard in these two cases?
