Pastor who said Pulse victims got ‘what they deserved’ accused of molesting boy at church

Pastor Ken Adkins

 

A Georgia pastor who said Pulse nightclub shooting victims got what they deserved has been arrested on child molestation charges.

Ken Adkins, of St. Simons Island, turned himself in to police about 9 a.m. Friday on aggravated child molestation charges, reported The Florida Time-Union.

The 56-year-old Adkins, who has congregations in Atlanta, Jacksonville and Brunswick, Georgia, is an outspoken anti-LGBT activist in the Jacksonville area.

He drew widespread condemnation for making offensive remarks about a fatal shooting that left 49 clubgoers dead and 53 others wounded at a gay nightclub in Orlando.

“I don’t see none of them as victims,” Adkins tweeted. “I see them as getting what they deserve!!”

The alleged abuse took place at Adkins’ church in Brunswick, as well as the pastor’s car and the victim’s home, prosecutors said.

His attorney said investigators told him the abuse took place in 2010.

The pastor’s wife said she believed Adkins would be cleared, and she expressed concern about the young man who made the allegations.

Charlotte Stormy Adkins said the alleged victim was part of the church’s ministry and had been mentored by her and her husband.

She will serve as interim pastor while her husband takes leave.

“Domestic Terror” Attack Leaves 20 Dead, 42 Injured At Florida Nightclub

A horrific attack this morning at an Orlando nightclub has led to approximately 20 dead, and 42 hospitalized. A lone gunman entered the club early this morning and opened fire on the people in the club before engaging local police in an extended gun battle. Police have announced no motive at this point, but have classified the attack as “Domestic Terror”.

Police: 20 feared dead after Florida nightclub terror attack

Approximately 20 people are dead inside Pulse, a gay nightclub, Orlando Police Chief John Mina said Sunday morning, just hours after a shooter opened fire in the club. At least 42 people have been transported for medical treatment, he said.

Police have shot and killed the gunman, Mina told reporters.
“It’s appears he was organized and well-prepared,” the chief said, adding that the shooter had an assault-type weapon, a handgun and “some type of (other) device on him.” Law enforcement sources told CNN that the device, which was strapped to the suspect, was possibly explosive, but authorities don’t know if it was real or not.
A canine unit indicated there were explosives inside the suspect’s car as well, the sources said.
At least nine officers were involved in the shootout, Mina said. Several coroner vans were seen traveling toward the nightclub.
One officer suffered an eye injury when a bullet struck his Kevlar helmet, said Danny Banks, special agent in charge of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s Orlando bureau. The helmet saved the officer’s life, Banks said.
