And here we go again. SURPRISE!
Jack Schaap, pastor of Chicago-area megachurch First Baptist Church of Hammond, has been fired from his position after confessing to having sex with a 16-year-old member of his congregation. While the girl's identity has not been revealed, intitial reports suggest Schaap acted as a counselor to the teenage girl.
He is married and is infamous for his misogynistic and anti-gay sermons. He is also the chancellor of the Hyles--Anderson Bible College.
The Lake County Sherrif's office along with the FBI have begun a criminal investigation into Schapp and the church after news of the affair leaked on Tuesday. Sherriff John Buncich did not give any specific details of the investigation.
According to CBS Chicago, the affair was discovered by a church deacon completely by accident.
"Jack Schaap had left his cell phone on the pulpit and a deacon had seen it on the pulpit and had picked it up to bring it back to him," Trisha Kee told CBS Chicago. "From what we understand, the deacon then saw a text come through from a teenage girl in the church, and it was a picture of Jack Schaap and this girl making out."
