Cult Leader Sentenced to Five Years

Australia: Feòrag's nutjob radar is swifter than the local news services. She passed this gem onto me for local commentary.

This isn't the first time self-professed religious leader William Little Pebble Kamm has made an appearance in the Prattle, he was last mentioned for his schemes to scam Government grants. This time around it looks like someone noticed his personal cult, the Order of St Charbel, is nothing more than a front to get Kamm laid and the silly sod has been sentenced to a minimum of three-and-a-half years in jail for sexually abusing one of his teenage followers.

Kamm, 55, claimed to have received advice from the Virgin Mary that the girl should be chosen as one of 12 queens and 72 princesses who would become his mystical wives, to spawn an immaculate race after the world ended.

The jury was told he sent the teenager a series of explicit love letters, repeatedly stating how sexy she was and that heaven had granted permission for them to sleep together.

It's worth noting the quality information Kamm receives from God — through His Holy Mother, Mary. He issued a press release in August 2004 noting that terrorist (apparently just the one) are planning to attack several named targets in the immediate future. All of the targets are still intact and seemingly of no interest to nutjobs with bombs.

The judge admitted that the case did not fall into the worst case scenario, but believes that a full-time jail term was warranted as there is a significant risk of Kamm re-offending.

In sentencing today, Judge John Williams described the crime as an inexcusable and gross breach of trust against a very young and immature girl.

Judge Williams said the letters Kamm wrote to the girl were completely inappropriate in any circumstances and could not be given any religious justification.

Apparently it's quite legal to set up your own pseudo religion based around getting nooky and scamming the Government out of money, but it is frowned upon to shag teenage bimbos too stupid to know that shonky religious loons are best avoided. There seems to be something of an imbalance at work in the law.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
