The members of the church at which a young pastor was picked up for questioning about the sexual abuse of a minor are now coming under a lot of pressure from their community.

Members say they are now under scrutiny from community members since the young pastor's arrest, and according to one stalwart in the church, she is afraid to leave her home because of the backlash that she is receiving.

"Everything happened so fast and the church just stopped immediately," said the member. "Dem a tell him seh him must stop talk to that little girl, enuh, and him never did a listen."

Daily tabloid, The Star, is reporting that the pastor took the child out on numerous occasions and even though he was pressed by members of the church to desist from the action, he still continued.

"There were times when he would often be in conflict with the church. One time he even took the child out for her birthday to Carib, and the church was really upset about it," the member said.
