Many Outraged After Picture Of Chicago Bishop In Bathtub With GrandDaughter Surfaces [VIDEO]
This blew up our Facebook page yesterday. Pictured is Bishop Larry Trotter, senior pastor of the Sweet Holy Spirit Church - Chicago.
In the picture, which appears to have been uploaded from the pastor’s own Instagram account, a smiling Trotter can be seen seated in a bubble bath with young girl, his granddaughter.
Bishop Trotter defended himself from charges of inappropriateness:
According to Trotter, his four-year-old granddaughter, along with her parents, were visiting for the weekend. While taking a bubble bath, the girl came in the bathroom and asked Trotter if she could get in the tub. He then says that both he and his granddaughter had on swim trunks and the mother of the child, who took the picture, was present for five minutes that the child was actually in the tub with him.
Bishop Trotter said that “coming up” it was not uncommon to share bathwater and that he had even bathed with his own children. He says that he takes the blame for the misconceptions around the pictures but also said that it is awful to think that people believe he can’t be trusted with children.
