Blogger Outed by Police to Church Sues

Last month I posted about a disturbing story out of Jacksonville, FL, in which an anonymous blogger was outed by a police detective after he dared to criticize Pastor Mac Brunson of the First Baptist Church. The detective in question was a member of the pastor's security detail and revealed the blogger's identity to Brunson and his congregation even though no criminal charges were ever filed. I am happy to report the the blogger is now suing the sheriff's department and prosecutor's office. Sometimes this sort of legal action is necessary to prevent future abuses.

I wonder how many other churches have law enforcement officers working for them?
