New reports have recently surfaced showing that Pastor Bob Coy, who is a staunch Conservative and founder of one of Florida’s largest mega churches, was accused in 2015 of molesting a Florida girl for years. According to the allegations, Coy forced the girl to perform oral sex and fondled her genitals. The abuse began when the girl was just four years old and continued until she was a teenager.
Bob Coy is a former strip club owner turned religious zealot who resigned his post as pastor of The Calvery Chapel Church in Fort Lauderdale in 2014 due to a self-proclaimed addiction to pornography and multiple extra-marital affairs.
For reasons that remain unclear, Mr. Coy was never questioned or investigated for the allegations of sexual assault on a child. According to a report by the Miami New Times:
The sexual assault claims, which have never before been divulged, raise new questions about the pastor, his church, and the police who handled the case. Documents show that Coral Springs cops sat on the accusations for months before dropping the inquiry without even interviewing Coy. His attorneys, meanwhile, persuaded a judge with deep Republican ties to seal the ex-pastor’s divorce file to protect Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale from scrutiny.
Awesome. Yet another white, Christian male who is above the law when it comes to facing charges of sexual assault.
When he was recently questioned about the allegations of abuse, Coy stated:
If you’re foolish enough to go through with this story… it would hurt a lot of people.
No, Mr. Coy. Bringing this story to light will help to keep others from getting hurt by you, and will put prospective child molesters on notice that this type of behavior will not be tolerated—no matter your political affiliation, who your God is, and regardless of the color of your skin. You are a despicable human being and it was your actions that caused many people to be hurt.
Men like Coy clearly believe that they are above the law, and the only way to get them to stop harming our children is to begin holding them accountable for their actions.
