A pastor in the Keystone State claims things are not as they seem after he was found publicly “counseling” a rope-bound naked man in a parked car.
“I have nothing to hide,” 61-year-old pastor George Nelson Gregory told a Pittsburgh news station. “I did nothing wrong.”
However, police reports tell another story- when officers were called to investigate a suspicious vehicle parked outside of a minor’s window, they soon found a naked man bound with nylon rope in the front seat, with Gregory sitting in the back, adjusting his clothing.
Telling officers that they “were just playing,” Gregory reportedly added that he and the other man “meet up from time to time to play with each other,” with the nude bondaged man claiming the act was consentual.
Gregory claims the police’s version of the story “never happened.”
“I was counseling a young man with a drug problem,” Gregory told KDKA2. “It did turn strange, but it wasn’t my doing, OK? And I was adamant that I’m not participating in that way. And so that’s when the police pulled up, and they assume things, but I’m standing by my story. It’s not true.”
The Gregory’s church sermons happen to be held at the West Homestead Fire Department, though firefighters deny having much to do with the congregation, referring to the congregation as “strictly renters.”
Gregory continues to deny any allegations of lewd behavior.
“I won’t deny that he began to take his clothes off and propositioned me, but I will deny, on a stack of Bibles with God as my witness, that I did nothing,” Gregory said.
