Pastor Peeping Tom Says He Was Just ‘Praying’ For Woman He Watched Having Sex
Jeremy Gordon Grinnell, pastor at the Bella Vista Church in Rockford, MI, went to a woman’s house, took a ladder, climbed up on it and watched her and her partner have sex.
The police report says that he knew the location of the woman’s bedroom, and saw that the lights were on. You know, just curious and all. (Who hasn’t done this, really?) He watched the woman and her partner doing sex for about 20 seconds, and then the woman’s partner saw his scary pornstached face in the window, at which point Grinnell zipped down the ladder and ran off.
Then the next night, because he is A IDIOT, Grinnell came back for another observation; the woman’s partner confronted him and called police, and when he was arrested, he gave that very convincing “just praying for her” explanation.
Following the arrest, Grinnell resigned from his jobs as pastor at Bella Vista Church in Rockford and placed on leave from his position as an assistant professor of theology at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, which is part of Cornerstone University. Dude should’ve known that there are some projects that you really, really need to run past the Human Subjects committee before you conduct any field research.
