The Chattanooga Times-Free Press reports:
That Tuesday night’s “special service” was supposed to be a joyous one for televangelist Perry Stone. He circled the room singing along to the music. He cracked jokes about gaining weight over Thanksgiving. But as Stone was describing to his followers how some people walked away from religion in recent years, the voice of a woman in the back brought the auditorium to silence.
“Probably because you keep touching them, you nasty perv,” she yelled. “Why don’t you tell them the real reason why they left? Because you kept touching them.” “Ma’am, I’ll have you arrested, and I’ll bring a lawsuit against you for making statements like that,” Stone said, as his security guards rushed toward the woman. Last month, the FBI began questioning people connected to Stone and his Cleveland-based ministries, according to five people with direct knowledge of the interactions.
The Christian Post reports:
Longtime Tennessee-based televangelist and Bible teacher Perry Stone warned his followers against trusting secular media Monday, days after a local publication accused him of sexual misconduct.
“Over 32 years I have been involved with television. I’m involved with media, I know how media works,” Stone said in a YouTube video. “It’s not always about what’s true or not, it’s about the advertising dollars,” he continued. “I am not a perfect man,” he said.
“People have taken me hugging and kissing them on the cheek wrong. I quit that. I’m Italian. My whole family holds hands, rubs backs. I didn’t know you can look at somebody and say, ‘Hey, how you doing?’ and they can take it wrong.”
Sounds like the Cuomo defense, doesn’t it?
Right-wing pastor Perry Stone was accused of sexual misconduct, and there are concerns his relationship with local law enforcement is preventing an investigation. Now the FBI may be involved.
He’s already doing damage control.https://t.co/9MmARp888n
