JACKSONVILLE, FL -- The United Methodist Church is speaking out about a local pastor accused of having child pornography on his computer.

Eric Young, 58, was arrested at his home Friday. Young was the lead pastor of Fort Caroline United Methodist Church in Jacksonville.

"No one wants to see this kind of thing happen in the church," said Dr. Richard Neal, District Superintendent of the United Methodist Church.

"This is where folks go for comfort and help, but if something is hindering that, then we need to deal with it -- and we will," he said.
