This is Greg Stokes:
He is the senior pastor at the Cornerstone Church in East Windsor, CT. He was also recently elected to represent the town of Enfield as a state representative in the Connecticut State Legislature. It definitely helped that the incumbent he ran against was arrested for not one, but two DUI’s over an 18 month period. After Stokes defeated him his opponent was arrested two days later for another drunken encounter with his father. So basically Stokes was elected because the guy he was running against is the 35 year old town drunk.
Anyway, Greg Stokes is still moonlighting as a pastor, and as a pastor one of his duties is guiding the people at his church when they are in times of need. One of these needs includes listening to people who come to him with issues in their marriage, and guiding them through it with good advice. Well, one of his parishioners, who he married in June, came to him to talk about some minor fight she had with her husband. She trusted he would pray with her and give her some type of advice. But instead of getting advice, according to her husband’s Facebook post, he began to message her later that night, profess how attracted he is to her, and then asked her out to lunch:
Yea, that’s pretty shady. And he had screenshots of his wife’s conversation with Pastor/Representative Stokes to prove it. First Greg Stokes reached out to her, after seeing her prayer request on the church’s website, and was passive aggressively hinting to her that he wanted to turn the conversation around make it about his marital issues:
“I need to keep alone. Never mind.”
Translation – I can’t talk to you anymore, but I want you to ask me why.
So she starts telling him about her problems in confidence, and he wastes zero time once again making it all about him and how lonely he is:
We all have one of those friends. The one who always turns every story into something about them.
Then he told her he couldn’t give her advice because he was attracted to her:
She politely thanked him anyway, he “apologized,” and then right back to hitting on her by telling her how attractive she is:
“Saw you today and I had, well you know.” No Pastor, I don’t know. Are you implying that you had a boner? Because that’s what it sounds like you’re trying to say without coming out and saying it.
Then he asks her out for lunch, despite already telling her he can’t talk to her or give advice to her because he is too attracted to her:
“I should not be doing this.” Doing what? Dude, if you’re gonna try to have an affair, then try to have an affair. This whole masking it thing is just uncomfortable for everyone. I mean, one minute he’s asking her out and telling her how she’s giving him boners, and the next minute he’s saying “I should not be doing this.” Make up your mind dude.
HAHAHHAHHAHAHHAHA!!! Don’t want let you down!!! How will she ever survive? Because I know you she couldn’t wait to drop everything and leave her husband of seven months for this guy:
Then he messaged her again the next day and she finally told him she was gonna have to find a new church:
The bottom line is that this woman, who he JUST MARRIED to another man, came to her pastor for advice and help, and instead of getting help he made it about him by venting about his own loneliness, he hit on her a bunch of times, said he was turned on by her, asked her out to lunch, and then when she was weirded out by it he backed out of their imaginary affair (in his brain) and apologized for “letting her down.”
Say what you want about catholic priests, but this is why I kind of trust them more. Yea, they had that whole child diddling scandal and the fact that they’re willingly agreeing to lifelong celibacy is hard to come to terms with. But I feel like when I’m talking to a catholic priest I am speaking to a machine. Technically they’re human, but the fact that they can’t get married or date anyone completely eliminates the possibility of this happening. But to each their own.
And here’s another thing – I don’t trust any “pastor” who doubles as an elected official. See Sarai “Ti-Ti Ho” Rivera for more background on that. She once tried to use her influence as a City Councilor to get the taxpayers to pay to raze her death trap of a “church” so she wouldn’t have to pay for it herself. Personally, I like my politics and my religion separate.
Anyway, we spoke to another source who claims that his current wife came to him for marriage counseling when he was running a church in another state (he’s pastored at churches in Michigan and Kansas). The woman split up with her husband, he divorced his wife at the time, and he ended up marrying the woman who came to him for marriage counseling. So yea, pattern.
The fact that this guy is an elected official is just icing on the cupcake. As a Republican he is a member of the party that alleges itself to be the party of family values. That in and of itself makes this guy a fraud. More importantly, he’s in a position where he gets to mentor vulnerable women who trust him and come to him with their problems. He took all of five minutes to see this woman’s prayer request on the church website before messaging her and repeatedly telling her how attractive she is. Oh yea, and he JUST MARRIED her to another man!! Something tells me this isn’t the first time this has happened, and if we don’t blog about it then it’s probably not going to be the last time.
