MOTHER DEMANDS CHURCH BOOT ‘STRIP POKER’ PASTOR
The Rev. Jack Kennington admits playing strip poker with children and the kids' mother is asking, so why isn't he stripped of his priesthood? Christine Lyons Holzwarth, whose children Brendan and Bridget Lyons claim Kennington molested them said, I think it's an outrage. After he admitted playing strip poker with the kids, I can't imagine why they would keep him on and not expel him. Her children said they were molested for several years in the 1980s, beginning at age 9 and 13, respectively. Holzwarth said, I want to make sure he's out of service, and not dealing with kids anymore. Kennington, who was sued by Brendan Lyons in a case, denied molesting the kids, but conceded having played strip poker with them. The suit was settled for an undisclosed amount last year.
