Brutality at church Texas, yah

Any damn fool could have foreseen something like this happening when you tie someone to the back bumper of a vehicle and then start driving. Apparently some Christians—I want to be correct here: some fundamentalist Christians believe they’re exempt from from traditional definitions of “damn fool.” Maybe it’s that old “fool for Christ” exemption?

And this outfit got government money?

Pastor accused of dragging girl behind his van
A trainer also faces charges in incident at boot camp
San Antonio Express-news

A San Antonio pastor and an employee of his Christian boot camp were arrested Friday on aggravated assault charges, accused of dragging a girl behind a van after she failed to keep up during a running exercise.

Investigators with the Nueces County Sheriff's Office arrested Charles E. Flowers, 46, shortly before noon at the Faith Outreach Center in northwest San Antonio, said Brad E. Bailey, a spokesman for the Schertz Police Department.

Bailey said boot camp trainer Stephanie Bassitt, 20, was later arrested without incident at her home in Kirby.

Flowers and Bassitt each were being held on $100,000 bail at the Nueces County Jail in Corpus Christi.

Exempt from regulation
Last year, Love Demonstrated Ministries reported private and government contributions totaling $314,673 to operate the boot camp, with nearly 89 percent of the costs, $278,549, going for salaries.

Associate pastors at the Faith Outreach Center couldn't be reached for comment Friday.

Patrick Crimmins, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, said it "appeared that this operation is probably exempt from our regulation."

He said for a camp to be licensed, it needed to operate longer than 11 weeks.

The camp in Nueces County only lasts 32 days.

This is making some big news... the second blog I came across with a post like this.

Take care.
