No sign marks Miracle Park, a cluster of one-story yellow buildings surrounding a small church that caters to one of society’s most despised demographics: sex offenders.
Since the development opened eight months ago, the minister who runs it has recruited former inmates by distributing brochures in Florida prisons and plugging it in sermons at the lockups. Some 35 sex offenders now live in the complex about three miles from Pahokee, a poor farming community of 6,000 wedged into sugar cane fields of the Everglades.
“Leaving prison or jail soon? … Do you have special requirements concerning where you can and cannot live? You may have just found the answer to your prayers,” reads the pamphlet advertising the privately operated, 24-acre village
Honestly the amount of Catholic Church quotes that should come attached to this article is a number that I definitely can’t count to.Â You guys just had to recruit a priest to run all your listings didn’t you.
Yeah I’ll bet miracles do happen Father.
Here’s what the town’s Mayor Had to say:
“There’s just too many in one place,” said Pahokee Mayor Wayne Whitaker. “It’s very, very risky.”
The Mayor’s real response after the jump
“There’s just too many penises in this building that are going to try and grab a bunch of smaller penises in this town.Â Frankly I’m a bit nervous that our children are in serious danger.”
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
