East TN pastor shares insight on parishioner charged after Jan. 6

Kelley is being accused of kicking the Senate Wing door open after gaining entry to the Capitol through the window he allegedly broke which allowed other rioters to enter. Court documents reveal the FBI interviewed Kelley twice last June and he told agents he didn’t enter the building. But prosecutors say images of Kelley in the Capitol paint a different story.

Ken Peters, the pastor of The Church at Planned Parenthood (TCAPP)-Knoxville says he helped get Kelley a ride to DC.

“I connected him with one of our church folks who I knew had a spot and yeah that was it,” Peters said. “I didn’t see him after that until quite a while.”

Peters reports Kelley was not a member of his church but did see Kelley at church events in the Knoxville area every so often. Peters described Kelley as a nice guy.

Yeah he might seem nice on the surface, but he was threatening to murder senators and representatives in the most violent ways possible. Maybe he wasn't so nice after all?

not fooled

What the living F? But you're exactly right:


It's church services held outside clinics.

It's national. I wish I didn't know about these things and these people.

Host consensus is this OP doesn't meet the criteria in the SOP for this forum:

Important news of national interest only.

This would be fine in General Discussion.
