So Falleth the Mighty

Richmond residents will be familiar with the child sex abuse scandal of "Pastor G" of the megachurch Richmond Outreach Center:

Geronimo "Pastor G" Aguilar published a statement to his congregation on the Richmond Outreach Center's website Thursday morning, a day after the ROC's board of directors accepted his resignation along with that of four others.

In the statement, Aguilar says he decided to step down last week due to the criminal charges "taking the focus off of Jesus" and instead putting it on him. He asks his congregation to pray for him and his family, tells them "no person will ever love you like your pastor has" and thanks the ROC's staff and leadership team.

"No person will ever love you like your pastor has." Seriously, Pastor G? That seems horribly impolitic, given the charges.
