Does This Look Like the Face of the Preacher Who Said Massacred Gays 'Got What They Deserved' Then Got Convicted of Having Underaged Threesomes?

Ken Adkins

SourceA married Baptist pastor who said homosexuals got ‘what they deserve’ after Omar Mateen massacred 49 people at a Florida gay club has been found guilty of eight charges of abuse against a teenage boy and girl. …

Bishop Kenneth Adkins, 57… a drug addict-turned-PR boss-turned-preacher, was arrested in August last year, two months after he made national headlines for tweeting about the shootings at the Orlando gay club Pulse.

‘Dear Gays, Go sit down somewhere,’ he tweeted on June 13, the day after 49 people were killed and many more injured. …

He later tweeted: ‘been through so much with these Jacksonville homosexuals that I don’t see none of them as victims. I see them as getting what they deserve!!’ …

The victim, … explained how Adkins had bought him gifts and began calling him and texting him, News4Jax reported. The preacher had sent him pictures of his penis, the victim said.

Eventually Adkins told the teen that he wanted to watch him have sex with his girlfriend, to make sure he was doing it properly, the court heard.

The preacher then joined the pair in the sex acts, he said. The victim told the court he’d ‘lost count’ of the times the three had been involved in sexual situations in the church office, in Adkins’ car, and at the beach. …

Most of Adkins’ defense was based not on denying the claims made by the victim, but on questioning whether he and the girl were actually 15 at the time, or 16.

Sometimes the only proper response to a “Does This Look Like the Face of …” post is “yes.” Yes, it does. Short of a few phenomenal Florida mugshots, this might be the most obvious hell yes in the long and glorious history of this feature.

It’s one of the oldest cliches in the world, and it yet it gets proven time and time again. Show us a guy who’s always angrily railing against gays and we’ll show you a guy who hates his own gayness. The corollary to which is: Scratch the surface of a drug addict-turned-PR-boss-turned-preacher who thinks gays getting gunned down by a maniac while minding their own business is Jesus’ retribution for homosexuality, and just underneath you’ll find a raging, child-molesting closet case like the good Reverend Ken Adkins here.

I mean, it takes a special brand of depravity to publicly celebrate a religious zealot’s homicidal rampage after you’ve befriended an underaged boy, sent him dick pics and joined his girlfriend in FMM sex. That’s some next level denial and weapons grade self-loathing. But also really helpful to use as a window into the soul of the next moralizing lunatic who comes along bathing in the blood of a bunch of murder victims. Because by now we can be guaranteed that that guy will be faaa-lllaming.
