The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 1

Crimes of Preachers

page break

Crimes of Preachers.

Having met an article in the Cincinnati Commercial giving the names, places of residence, and facts constituting the crimes committed by preachers in the United States, giving forty instances, and entitled, "Preachers' Pranks," I thought it might be well to clip from newspapers such accounts for a time, and record the result.

The lists were opened May, 1876, and closed for first edition May, 1881.

If I was astonished at the fearful list of forty given by the Commercial, that astonishment paled into insignificance when I had prepared the following array of "preachers' crimes." It seems impossible that such a record could be compiled with the meager means at hand.

These data have been the result of the reading by the author, of four newspapers, and the casual reading of seven others. These papers are published in the states of Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri. None has been from the Southern states, none from the Pacific states.

The author has reason to believe that he has not collected more than one-half of the instances published, no particular pains having been taken.

page 8

It has been customary to drop the first names of men who have "taken holy orders;" consequently many a pious villain is recorded as Rev. Smith or Rev. Jones. In some cases the place was not fully given where the crime was committed. In some instances the offense is given the laconic name applied by the ecclesiastical court which tried the criminal, as "immoral conduct," "lascivious conduct," etc.; names probably given to hide the grossness of the offense, and to screen the reverend scoundrel in the interest of Christ's church.

The author has besides a long list of offenses committed by these reverend "bilks," where the name is entirely suppressed, as is supposed, out of respect for his "sacred calling."

The denomination was not given in many instances to which the "pious soul" belonged, consequently this record will hardly do to rely upon to enable the reader to ascertain what branch of "the church of God" has shown the most efficiency in pastoral criminality.

Letters will be found placed after a name, as P. E., for presiding elder, Ev. for Evangelist; for instance: Carhart, Rev. J. W., P. E., and Bayliss, Rev. E. L, Ev. The D.D., Ph.D., LL.D., and other addenda purchased of those institutions called colleges and theological seminaries—which are established and maintained for the purpose of preventing men from being educated—have not been preserved with any great care. If any reverend gentleman feels aggrieved by the omission, if he will send to the author the certificate of the warden of the state prison where he is page 9 confined, to the effect that he is entitled to such a distinction, the same shall be added in the next edition of "Crimes of Preachers."

If any have been overlooked, and left out of this "illustrious category," and desire the distinction of having their names made famous, they will please forward the facts, certified by some responsible person, to the author, and they shall not go away hungry.

"These be thy gods, O Israel!"
