Another Pastor/Sex Scandal - Bishop Joseph Walker III



Is this an epidemic - Pastor's and sex scandals or is it just something that is coming to light?
The latest, Bishop Joseph Walker III, is facing charges of multiple sexual assaults.
Four women have accused popular Nashville pastor Bishop Joseph Walker III of Mount Zion Baptist Church and five other church leaders of sexual misconduct and violating their trust over the past 10 years. The women allege contact with Walker led to sexual assault, and in one case, a forced abortion.
Four former female parishioners sued the pastor and five other leaders for “clerical malpractice” and a “conspiracy [to] recruit young women for purposes of sexual, psychological and spiritual exploitation,” local media reported. The women are suing for $5 million, according to local news station WTVF-TV.
The women allege they were sexually exploited and abused during counseling sessions sponsored by Mt. Zion Baptist Church, and that church leaders recruited women for exploitation and sex for nearly 10 years.
Mount Zion is one of Nashville’s largest churches with some 25,000 members and growing at a phenomenal rate of over 1,800 members per year, according to the church’s website. Walker started his ministry at the church in 1992.
Only one of the accusers has revealed herself, while the others have chosen to remain anonymous. The name of one of the accused church leaders, other than Walker, was also revealed.
