Sensationalist at the Star News is known to have become over these many years especially when it comes to same sex allegations here is another entry from them that appeared in the February 7th edition entitled Pastor Flees after Sex Scandal, these days however the language from the previously well respected evening version of the Gleaner turned tabloid trash is improving it seems as the story as excerpted below will bring to bear.
This also is another in the series of stories from the press and elsewhere that forces us to look at clandestine homosexuality, downlow or secret bisexual love amongst our Jamaican brothers, it was only a week before the Star News also carried a more hyper masculine or thug involved episode of naked "heaviot" also known as "trade" in the United States thugs allegedly caught in the act who pulled guns at their possible homophobic attackers who demanded they leave the community, they have since done so but vowed if anyone tried anything funny to harm them they would suffer the consequences.
This was added to claims that earlier this year he was heard in the church's office engaging in an alleged sex act with another brother.
These accusations are said to have caused the pastor and his wife to flee the church leaving the remaining flock to search for a new leader.
When THE STAR visited the community yesterday, we were informed that the pastor, who has several children, is probably overseas. We were also told that since the incidents the wife no longer attends the church and they are looking a new pastor.
"Mi hear seh him gone a foreign, but mi nuh know what happen to the wife," a source said.
In the case of the incident which allegedly happened in the office, it is said that when the pastor's wife was given a description of the sounds that were being made during the alleged sex act she confirmed it was her husband.
groan and moan
"Mi hear seh dat di pastor did a groan and moan and a mek some noise wid one next man inna di church one early morning and dem call di wife and tell her and she seh a so him gwaan when him make love," the source said.
THE STAR understands that despite some persons being shocked, most of the congregation was not surprised when they heard the allegations.
A community member, when asked about the incident, told THE STAR that "Mi hear seh a not too long ago the pastor who always a gwaan like him holy did have a big repentance service dat him tell everybody to repent and confess dem sins."
The source further stated that he has heard several theories about what has happened to the pastor since the incident. "Dis minute you hear seh dem suspend him for two years and dat him leave the island and the next minute you hear seh that him gone a one secret island with a Nigerian lover."
Meanwhile, efforts to make contact with the church has proven futile. One church member, Brother Paco, when contacted, told THE STAR that he has changed his mind about disclosing any details on the matter as the church wants to move on from the incident.
