The anti-gay pastor who was picked up by a police officer (male) for soliciting sex is free. The fact is soliciting for sex isn't and shouldn't be illegal. It is hypocritical to troll for a same-sex encounter, while preaching against it. For that he's paying the price. But it just isn't illegal to ask someone to come with you to a hotel room for sex.

Personally I'd like to be in a life-long relationship with someone before I consider sexual activity. But that didn't happen in Scripture, e.g. Tamar posing as a prostitute and seducing her father-in-law and being judged righteous for doing so in Genesis 38:15, and doesn't happen today.
