Mike Crain arrested.

This brings back memories! He chopped ice blocks off people's stomach's in church services and when we witnessed on Daytona Beach during Spring Break. I remember our youth director, Ron Reilly, telling me about sleeping on the floor with Mike Crain during the early days of Trinity Youth Camp (I believe?).

It was a long time ago! Crain is definitely one of the 'golden agers' when it comes to the history of Trinity Baptist Church. He also founded the Fort Bluff Camp and the National Association of Christian Athletics.

His lawyers are allegedly threatening a blogger over the use of an image on his vinyl records. If you want to see vintage Mike Crain, click here.

Mike Crain was arrested on three counts of sexual battery on October 13, 2009. One of the assaults happened while the victim was asleep. She awoke to find Crane allegedly assaulting her.

The defense argument appears to be "progressive cognitive dementia".

Article: Mike Crain turns himself in to sheriff's department.

What's the deal here? Is this a matter of just 'bide your time' and everyone you ever saw behind the pulpit will eventually be arrested for some sexual crime? Okay. . .whose next?

I remember Mike Crain. I would like for the accusations to be unfounded, or a result of his stroke.

However, as a graduate of Bob Gray's Trinity Christian Academy, I can't quite bring myself to believe my own hopes.

Isn't that the truth?!

Let's see:

first Bob Gray gets arrested.

Then Tony Denton.

Tom Bennet becomes the subject of an investigation.

Another Trinity graduate gets arrested because of an investigation into abuse at another Christian camp.

Now, Mike Crain, although not involved with Trinity, but still a person who had a long standing relationship with that ministry, gets arrested.

I know it's probably normal for most large institutions to have people in trouble with the law, but come on! This is getting ridiculous. And all for the same types of charges: 'abuse' or 'inappropriate relations with students'.

Like I said, "Whose next?"

It does make you wonder.

Check out Troy Clark, graduate of Bob Gray's (molester of little girls) Trinity. Clark was convicted of taking indecent liberties with a 13 year old girl while he was a church youth director. Pretty sick--and kind of reminds me of the Catholic priest scandals. What the hell is wrong with these so-called Christians?
