Florida Pastor Arrested for Kidnapping, Assault 5

Must be nice to transition so seamlessly from criminal to pastor and back again. But why would the faithful take your godly mission seriously when you have rap sheet as serious as the reverend Tommy Baxter?

A Pottawatomie County pastor was awaiting extradition to Florida after being arrested on several outstanding warrants, the sheriff’s department said Thursday.

Thomas Hughie Baxter Jr., 35, spent 10 years in a Florida prison and was released in May 2010, according to the Florida Department of Corrections website. He was incarcerated on charges including kidnapping, weapon and assault violations, and impersonating a law enforcement officer, records show.

Published reports say Baxter is the pastor of the Cornerstone of Jesus Christ Church in Shawnee.

    Lets package this priest up, put him on a plane to the south Antartic, where he can be as cold, criminal idiopathic christian as he wants to be.

    Anybody can become a pastor. You can go online, pay, take a course, and get a certificate. His “church” was online by the way. All I wanna say is that everyone is pretty stupid to not know he was a wanted felon for 2 years. I mean come on, information is easily found online.
