HAMMOND, Ind.– The former pastor of a megachurch in northwest Indiana who admitted to having a sexual relationship with a teenage parishioner allegedly told the girl that Jesus approved of their tryst.

In a sentencing memorandum filed Wednesday, federal prosecutors included letters allegedly written by former First Baptist Church pastor Jack Schapp to the 17-year-old girl.

“That is exactly what Christ desires for us,” read one letter in part. “He wants to marry us [and] become eternal lovers.”

Schapp is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to charges against him last September.  He told a federal judge he first had sex with the girl when she was 16.

Schapp faces at least 10 years in prison.  He is expected to be sentenced Thursday.

      Are you stupid? More whites mean more of everything. Do you understand the idea of "per- capita". If you had same numbers of blacks, Hispanics, or any other people you would have close to same issues. Slavery could NOT have happened without some native blacks working for and selling to the white man.

      You really need o get an education. Bad is not black or white it is just men can be bad.

        Don't argue with me, argue with the FBI.

        And per stats if you took 100 white men and 100 Black men, on average far more of the whites will be diddlers than Blacks.

        You make up your own reality, because what you say is not real stats, more black men leave their kids to grow up in the streets robing, raping, dealing drugs. Gangs, shootings. More there is more black on black crime then there will ever be white on black crime.

        Again you need an education.

        If so many black men were not making so many babies and abandoning them, instead of being a father to then and teaching them right from wrong so (many your words) of these whit emen would not have a chance to be diddlers!

      Beginning on April 6, 1994, Hutus began slaughtering the Tutsis in the African country of Rwanda. .. Lasting 100 days, the Rwanda genocide left approximately 800,000 Tutsis and Hutu sympathizers dead.

      Also during the violence, thousands of Tutsi women were raped. Some were raped and then killed, others were kept as sex slaves for weeks. Some Tutsi women and girls were also tortured before being killed, such as having their breasts cut off or had sharp objects shoved up their vagina.

      Hay as__ho__ all black men, not one white man to be seen. did you read 800,000 dead raps.

      Only a simple minded can reduce the problems of the world to a "BLACK and WHITE" Issue.

      Like I have said GET AN EDUCATION.

      It would be smarter THAN you, but we won't judge since you didn't complete school. and I 'm pretty sure that when he said "praise the lawd" that was meant to be a joke (like saying Lord with an accent) maybe you are retarded?? maybe?

        The problem is why not speak English, not ten unintelligible slang of ignorant people's of times past when they new no better.

        Even a dummy like me knows how to speak his native language.
