Chicago, U.S. - Bishop Larry Trotter, high-profiled senior pastor of the Sweet Holy Spirit Church, an 8,000-member mega-church, woke up to a huge debate after posting photo of himself and his 4-year-old granddaughter in a bathtub on his Instagram page.
Now social media is ablaze, as this picture has both sinners and saints divided.
Many argue that the picture is innocent and it is social media and the general public that is perverting a quality time between a grandfather and his granddaughter.
Others argue that this is perverted: regardless of how innocent his intentions may have been, no grown man should be in the tub with a child of any age. Another argument against was that no man should ever ever ever take a bath with a female in his family or friends - that’s only for a man and his wife.
The bishop defended himself by saying that while taking a bubble bath, his granddaughter, who was visiting with her parents for the weekend, came in the bathroom and asked him if she could get in the tub. He agreed, and it was the girl’s mother who took the photograph.
What do you think – is it appropriate or not?
