Another day, another antigay pastor caught being a total perv.
Matthew Dennis Patterson is, er, was the pastor at Nolensville Road Baptist Church in Tennessee. That is until he abruptly resigned after congregation members began complaining about his requests to “engage in strange activities” with children, authorities say.
Now, after a six-month investigation, 45-year-old Patterson has just been arrested for molesting at least eight children, mostly little boys, over a period of 20 years.
The Tennessean reports:
Children at the church told adult members that Patterson had asked them to sit on his face and stomach, sometimes in their underwear, according to a police statement.
After interviewing multiple church and staff members, police said the detectives identified multiple victims, most of them boys, who were molested from 1998-2017. Police did not say how old the children were at the time of the alleged abuse.
Patterson has been indicted on eight counts of aggravated sexual battery. Each count is linked to a different child, according to police.
According to its website, Nolensville Road Baptist Church “cites the Bible as the only authority for faith and practice, belief in the sinful nature of man, biblical family roles and local church autonomy.”
Patterson has been described as a “vocal opponent” of LGBTQ rights, including opposing several state anti-discrimination bills designed to protect LGBT people from bias in housing and employment.
He is currently in police custody. Bond has been set at $100,000.

Another typical evangelical, Right wing pastor. Just like the ones Republicans are always meeting with.
So, you know he is a registered Republican? What if I told you he is on the voter roles as a Democrat? You can’t determine what ANYONE does, in or out of church.
@Mick406, DCguy did not say he was a “registered Republican.” You did. DCguy said he was an evangelical right-winger, just like the many, many right-wing Christianist nuts the GOP meets with and whose bidding the party does. Whatever this particular homophobic minister’s political affiliation, it does not change the fact that evangelicals, including many hypocritic scumbags like this busted pedophile, support the GOP and vice versa.
Funny Mick406. I didn’t say he was a Republican. YOU DID.
But nice to see that the second we’re talking about pedophile pastors you immediately clock the fact that they are always Republicans.
wow this guy is so pervy…Children?? Are you insane dude or just another republican scumbag that stands behind a pulpit and talks utter bull shit? You preach about God and other subjects but you worship Satan! You are aware that you are a sinner beyond redemption??
If unprotected sex with porn stars and Playboy bunnies does not sway them, then nothing will.
Yet another cult run amok.
With a tax break!
All Churches, Mosques, Synagogues, Temples, and whatever else need to lose their tax exemption; feeding the poor, taking care of the community, and running charities should be to “Please God”, not get a tax exemption.
All religious institutions supposedly exist to benefit society, not have its top leadership, as we see with many “Christian” Churches, horde absence amount of personal wealth in the name of the man they supposedly follow.
Also this disgusting Pedo should be called exactly what he is, not a perv, as if hes some sort of a peeping tom, but a pedophile dangerous around children.
Why am I not surprised…. smh..
“Evangelicals are hypocrites!”
I thought Queerty’s new comment policy said not to use blanket statements to describe groups.
Also, I think saying “male gay men” is a bit redundant. If they are male and gay, then they are men.
I deleted the comment.
So tomorrow we can see this ?man? thing get an award in the White House Garden. His actions were So Presidential Like.
Tee hee, maybe this pastor really wants Donnie Trump to sit on his face and pass that Orange gas! :>)
Wait a minute, you mean to tell me the 11th Commandment, “And your young male offspring in their underpants shall sit on my face,” is being impugned? For shame!
