O They Will Know We Are Christians By…

…the novel ways we educate our daughters about scripture.

Pastor had sex with daughters

A fundamentalist church pastor had sex with two of his teenage daughters to educate them on how to be good wives, a South Australian court has heard.

The 54-year-old man, who cannot be named, was today sentenced in the SA District Court to eight and a half years jail after pleading guilty to seven counts each of incest and unlawful sexual intercourse.

The court heard that the man had sex with his daughters for nearly a decade from 1991 when they were aged 13 and 15 at the family property….

The man told the court the sex was not about fulfilling his desires but about teaching his daughters how to behave for their husbands when they eventually married, as dictated in scripture.

What's the problem?

Dan, you need to collect all of these and do a special feature in the Stranger at some point.

Why in the world can't this guy be named? Here in America, you'd be on CNN an Fox with full mugshot instantaneously, "Innocent until proven guilty" or not. What a creep.

I bet he's not identified because to name him would instantly identify the victims - his daughters. Seems unfair to not out a rapist, though.

To protect the victims. If the name of the father was published, the names of the victims could be more easily determined. They are entitled to whatever privacy they can hang on to, if that is their desire.

No doubt, just the fact that it is a preacher with two daughters narrows the list more than a little, but at least its some semblance of effort at protecting the privacy of the victims.

He cannot be named because to do so would identify his daughters and expose them to the further shame of public scrutiny. He is a horrible man who did a horrible thing to them but I would imagine the girls would rather not have the world know who they are.

Nah @4, he should collect them all and publish them in the vein of Chick Tracts or maybe a Gideon Bible type ripoff. Have the public intern hand them out at local "hip" Churches.

He sounds like the prototype for the perfect supporter of Concerned Women of America ...

What a horrid person ... I need to re think my opposition to castration as legal penalty ...

What a BASTARD. Ugh. This one just seems worse than usual.

HOTTT. Those abstinence fetishists have the kinkiest sex there is!

It says he has a "good chance of rehabilitation as his wife and the church remained supportive."

His wife remains supportive?!

Posted by Joey the Girl | August 31, 2007 12:20 PM

I guess he must have figured, "if it was good enought for Lot and his daughters, it ought to be good enough for me and mine."

Posted by COMTE | August 31, 2007 12:45 PM

Yeah, he was teaching them to expect their husbands to rape them regularly -- as dictated in scripture.

The perverted goi deserve exposure by intrepid journalists like Dan. Middat hadin is finally being served to the followers of the toxic religion of Christ.

Judaism is the world's most righteous religion and you simply never find examples of sexual perversion and incest among our people.

Castrate him and then hang him from a tree by the neck. That would by my solution as a wife who found out her husband was doing that. Prison would be worth every minute!

Australians are fucking crazy.

Posted by laterite | August 31, 2007 1:41 PM

What are the odds that wifey knew this was going on all along?

Posted by Tlazolteotl | August 31, 2007 2:28 PM

He ONLY got 8.5 years? For raping 2 minros repeatedly over a period of 10 years? This guy should be put away for life.

Posted by Miss M | August 31, 2007 2:59 PM

Ugh, God, I felt dirty just reading that.

Posted by Gloria | August 31, 2007 3:33 PM

"On the back of a ute"? WTF? And how was he caught, anyway, with such a "supportive" wife and church?

Posted by Periergeia | August 31, 2007 5:37 PM

This guy looks like a big sweetie compared to "Papa Pilgrim". He had a whole bunch of kids ranging in age from 2 to 30 years. He moved his family to rural Alaska so that they could collect permanent fund dividends and victimize his daughters. One really has to wonder if his daughters were not actually mothers to some of the youngest kids......Pretty gross! Enough to turn me well off of fundamentalist freaks forever!

With any luck, he'll suffer the same fate in prison as his daughters did living with him. I would call that justice.
