Anti-LGBT activists in Eureka Springs, Arkansas recently released a video pushing for the repeal of Ordinance 2223, which protects LGBT people from discrimination.
The video features a number of prominent spokespeople, including a Baptist pastor who has been exposed as a serial rapist, the Arkansas Times reports:
Acra Lee Turner, 60, currently serves as a pastor of Penn Memorial Baptist Church in Eureka Springs. In an interview with the Times, he confirmed that he is the same Acra Lee Turner who, as a 22-year-old man, was convicted of three counts of rape in Stephens County near Lawton, Okla. In April 1977, he was sent to prison for three concurrent sentences of 30 to 60 years for those crimes, including — according to this story from an Oklahoma newspaper — the rape of an 80-year old woman who was beaten so badly that she was almost unrecognizable.
Turner claims he has turned his life around with Jesus.
