Salem Missionary Baptist Church’s leader Rev. Hosea Stubblefield has rallied the troops to show he has support at their house of worship despite the controversy.
He says, “I would tell everybody again I’m not saying it was right and I do apologize about it and it was a mistake that was made in my past.”
It was Monday when we first reported the former head Deacon and some church members wanted Stubblefield gone.
That’s after the congregation learned their pastor made several explicit sex videos with various women that were posted on a blog.
Lecobeun Lewis says, “they all be up there in front of the church saying God spoke to me. Did he speak to you before or after you made the videos.”
Stubblefield acknowledges he made the sex videos – between 5 and 10 of them over a ten year period. The most recent just two years ago…
However, the 32 year old’s main point is he wasn’t a pastor at Salem Missionary when it happened but he does admit he was still a preacher.
“I have been a preacher for over twelve years,” says Stubblefield.
He says the congregation has kicked out the Davis family – the ones who made the church aware of the sex scandal – The preacher says he’s pursuing criminal charges against the person he says stole the videos from him..
Some of the videos also ended up on this blog by a woman who said she once dated Stubblefield and wanted the public to know what kind of man he is.
Stubblefield says, “they were deleted on the computer and the files were recovered and kept against my knowledge for 7 months to basically use against me.”
Stubblefield, who’s been with Salem for a year, says the dark day he had when the story broke has turned into a positive…He says he’s received support from all over the country but he still wants to make this clear.
“Watch what you do today because it could haunt you tomorrow. Just make sure you are as accountable as you can be for your actions at all times,” says Stubblefield.
