As evil as this man is, I don't know if what he did should be considered illegal.
 
2004-11-30 12:55:29 AM  
eck, this story makes me sick. i can't wait until religion is dead.

As evil as this man is, I don't know if what he did should be considered illegal.

As much as I want to find something wrong with what he did, I can't.

/methinks I found a new racket
 
2004-11-30 01:04:47 AM  
What he did was wrong in so many ways and he should not be allowed to preach anymore.

\And btw, punkennedys, religion is as much of humanity as culture and language. it will only change, never die.

Oops, now I RTFA!

So, when guys lie to women in order to sleep with them, can the women now use that if the guy ends up being a bad lay?
 
2004-11-30 01:05:40 AM  
It was the threat of death towards the 3rd woman that is illegal. You can't say that you will kill someone. It's naughty.

Lying to women to get them into bed is a staple of the male repertoire. If they fall for the protection-from-Satan pickup line, whose fault is that?

This just proves that women are dumb.

And who among us has not done the same, I ask you?
 
2004-11-30 01:08:12 AM  
I will naively attempt to forestall the coming Christian/athiest flamewar by stating that this is not representative of most Christians.

Feh. ironic tag is in order: William Kennedy, J., presiding over a rape trial?


Thou must cockslob me, lest Be'elzebub taint thy sould for all eternity with grievous afflictions! Lemme see that thang from the backside, girl! Show me that thong, that thong tha-thong-tha-thong (that tho-ong)!!!!

 
2004-11-30 01:09:34 AM  
Well, they are getting him for three counts of criminal threatening, yet cite only one incidence of it. Must be more to the allegations than our intrepid reporter has implied. Wither that, or they were a lazy fark. I'm guessing... lazy fark.

So he's been Dickin' Dora.
 
2004-11-30 01:10:09 AM  
So, people really believe that a ministerial bonking will save them from Satan? I always thought religion was just a cop out for people who can't handle the world...It isn't my fault, it's God's will.
Now I realise it's a refuge for the thickest of the thick.

\\Window seat please.
 
2004-11-30 01:10:19 AM  
i think at that point, when your preacher tells you that only his no-pants-dance will save you from satan, a second opinion is in order.
 
2004-11-30 01:10:31 AM  
How dumb can these women be to believe such stupid chit..Reminds me of the morans going around telling ppl a missle hit the pentagon instead of a plane..IDIOTS!!..

/ Hope they get an STD or 3
 
2004-11-30 01:10:52 AM  
Not alter boys for a chage. How refreshing!
 
2004-11-30 01:11:25 AM  
Oh Man! If I had a nickel for every time I fell for the old "Satan will get you unless we have sex" story.
 
2004-11-30 01:11:27 AM  
Why do you all assume he was wrong? Maybe he saved those women's lives!?
 
2004-11-30 01:11:34 AM  
I'm guessing he'll use the "Devil made me do it" defense?
 
2004-11-30 01:12:55 AM  
Evil deranged scum or genius secular womanizer? You decide!

Couldn't he go with the "God communicated with me directly etc etc" bit?
Can they prove otherwise? Has the devil indeed harmed these women since?
See, it really worked.
 
2004-11-30 01:15:50 AM  
Silly women. Didn't they know that Satan doesn't swing that way?

I don't see the problem here. Number one, at least he harassed ADULT FEMALES so already he's ahead of the holy man sexual harassment curve. Second, he didn't personally threaten them, he said Satan was threatening them. Why didn't these broads just tell him to go fark himself and find another church, why did they have to make a criminal case out of it?

The article didn't exactly specify whether or not they complied. If they did, that's pretty farking funny. But still consensual, since he didn't say he was going to hurt them, he pinned it on Satan. If they feel like stupid coonts after the fact that's their problem.

Case dismissed.
 
2004-11-30 01:17:15 AM  
He told me that there was a revelation from God," Dora said. "He told me that I had already been attacked by the devil, that I could only stop this by having sexual relations with him."

Insert obligatory slam at ultra-religious tools who let other people think for them.

No - it's not blame the victim. but, for gods sake (pun intended) use your brain.
 
2004-11-30 01:18:51 AM  
Seems to me to be the Womans fault.

If she was that stupid......

Stupid people get exploited all the time. Televangelism is a great example.

What this pastor did was trick people into having sex with him. Televangelists trick people into giving them their money.

One is more harmful than the other......
 
2004-11-30 01:20:24 AM  
Ok. Here are the facts. If I hear voices in my head I am crazy and they put me in an asylum. If I hear voices in my head and they belong to "god" I am blessed and they put me in charge of a church.

Very good point. To all Christians out there. How do we know that this wasn't just as genuine a manifestation of God's will as the "Virgin Mary Toasted Cheese Sandwich" miracle? God works in mysterious ways.
I myself have a very high Jebus sperm count. It must be holy. In my choir days, the priest often sanctified it.

Mugato:

does the last line in the article say something different when you click on it than when i do the same?
 
2004-11-30 01:22:18 AM  
Mugato:

He threatened to kill a woman who wanted to stop. Last I recall, that's illegal. Oh, and the whole abuse by a person in a position of power.

I wonder if this was a factor...
A third woman testified that Romero threatened to kill her after she tried to end their sexual relationship in February 2003.

Oh come on. Who hasn't told a lie like this to get laid!
 
2004-11-30 01:26:20 AM  
Ok so that last broad has a case, if she has it recorded, which she most likely does not. But the others don't have squat.
 
2004-11-30 01:26:32 AM  
This article just shows yet another example of why organized religion is irrelevant.
 
2004-11-30 01:26:58 AM  
"He told me that there was a revelation from God," Dora said. "He told me that I had already been attacked by the devil, that I could only stop this by having sexual relations with him."

Okay, for most rational thinking people, this seems absolutely stupid, but for a very religious person who puts her faith in her pastor as someone who will guide her on the road to salvation....that's just wrong, and he should be punished.
 
2004-11-30 01:30:24 AM  
I like how they capitalize god as if the christian god is the only one, even in a "neutral" source as a newspaper.

Mugato: Are you, by chance, one of those guys who think that Mary Kay Letorneau did a favor to her 13 year old student by raping him?
 
2004-11-30 01:31:56 AM  
Is it just me, or does "pretense" really not work in that sentence? I guess "pretext" would work, but doesn't "pretense" as used here suggest that it's Satan doing the pretending?

Any grammar nazis or pedants out there have an opinion? Ferris Bueller?
 
2004-11-30 01:32:33 AM  
mugato

if the contention is that the threat of satan attacking them counts towards 'threats', it'd add an entertaining angle, if nothing else. be an interesting precident.

fark it, if we're gonna go off the religious deep end, lets go all the way.

I'm gonna have to side with you on that one, Archvillian. Pretext, not pretense.

Because from the Old Testament, sex outside of marriage is considered the sin of fornication.

God is meant to be disgusted by sin and would never ask anyone to commit it.

These ladies were religious dumbasses. I bet I know how they voted in the last election.
