I went to what I thought was a conservative Baptist church but boy was I wrong. It ended up that the pastor's wife was divorced and she befriended me (what a mistake). Each time we went out she would gossip about someone and then she would horribly attack my husband verbally. Then one day my husband was having a difficult time so I went to the pastor's home and asked him and his wife to pray for my husband I could not believe it. This pastor and his wife acussed my husband of lying, stealing, drinking alcohol, doing drugs and beating me. I later found out they had women deacons in the church. The pastor lived across the hall from us and harassed us and falsely acussed us calling us at late hours of the night until one night he pounded on the door and called my husband and filled harassment charges against us. It was fine because we no longer had to put up with his foolishness. He continually lied and made false accusations against us. We had a dog and regularly picked up after our dog and kept a large garbage badge on the porch with the dog's wastes in it. He stole the waste products out of the bag on our porch. This man was a pastor and told us not to go to another church and gossipped about other people who had left the church. I think for Biblical reasons of being married to a divorced woman, being a novice, not being blameless and sowing discord among the brethren this man should not be a pastor what are your thoughts?
