Presbyterian Church Employee Fired After Arrest

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Presbyterian Church has fired an employee after his arrest on a sex charge.

The Reverend Dennis Cobb was charged earlier this month with second-degree indecent exposure. The 50-year-old is accused of exposing himself to an undercover detective while in his vehicle at a park. He pleaded not guilty yesterday.

Cobb had worked for eight years at the Louisville church headquarters as manager of assembly programming.

A spokeswoman for the the church office says they have a "zero
tolerance" policy for sexual misconduct.

    Good for this church. It is about time they stood up against this increase in sexual abuse issues with men of the cloth. Stop hiding it or buring it in the church yard start putting the cahoots out on their ears and in to prison and send a message of the ZERO TOLERANCE policy!
