Reverend T. J. McCorkle of Louisburg,NC, was arrested late yesterday afternoon at the intersection of Hwy 561 and Hwy 401 in Louisburg, NC. He was carrying a sign that reads---"Will Work for Sex.
Police say they had observed Reverend McCrkle for most of the day. The official arrest record states that McCorkle was picked up several times during the course of the day but was returned each time within minutes. One woman was heard screaming, "NO! I will NOT give you anything up-front!" An observer told the local Franklin Times that he had heard McCorkle say to the arresting officers, "Work for sex? I Aint doin nothin you guys haven't been doin all your married life! I just writ it down and put it on a sign!"
Reverend McCorkle is known in the local community for giving lectures at assisted living centers and nursing homes. He calls the lectues sermons and the thrust of them, so to speak, is the message---"Just say yes!" Members of his congregation rushed to McCorkle's defense noting that he had initiated the very first Ladies Aide Society in Louisburg and no one in the area had done more to help the needy.
The Times in a front page story featured a picture of the Reverend arriving home and the A Capella choir from the Ladies Aide Society serenading him with the Carly Simon song, "Nobody does it better."
The Reverend McCorkle was seen early this morning back at the corner of Hwy 401 and Hwy 561 accompanied by several police officers, members of the clergy, and the girls soccer coach from the local high school. Each carried a sign that reads--- "Will work for sex"
