Religiously Justified Paedophilia and Incest

Australia: Here's a delightful tale of religiously justified paedophilia and incest from South Australia.

A pastor from a South Australian fundamentalist church has been jailed for eight-and-a-half years after admitting he had sex with two of his teenage daughters.

The 54-year-old man, who cannot be named, pleaded 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 in the 1990s at the family property.

The man later told the court he had sex with the girls to educate them on how to be good wives — not for his own gratification.

Judge David Lovell rejected that, saying the man's explanation for the abuse defied belief.

In setting a four-year non-parole period, Judge Lovell said the man had good prospects of rehabilitation, and continued to have the support of his wife and church.

Cult Attempts to Turn a Paedophile into a Civil Rights Martyr

Australia: A month has passed since the news of Ken Dyers' suicide and it seems his cult has been attempting to create a martyr out of him, even if that means screwing over his victims.

Supporters of the 85-year-old Kenja founder — who shot himself last week while facing 22 counts of child sex assault and indecent assault — took the extraordinary step of placing advertisements in weekend newspapers declaring his innocence.

The full-page ads, which were run in The Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday, accused Dyers' two alleged victims of deliberately lying and behaving in an appalling fashion.

They also claimed police were out to get him to further their careers.

Steve Jackson is the Antichrist!

Is this meta-conspiracy? Cutting Edge Ministries have put together a number of pages insisting that a card game shows that the Spetember 11th attacks were an inside job and planned a long way in advance.

In nine pertinent playing cards of the "Illuminati New World Order" Game, how did the inventor know -- in 1995 -- the three events comprising the 9/11 attacks? How did he know also the correct plan in the near future? Why do his cards predict the appearance of Antichrist and the Rapture as the last two events of the Illuminati Plan?

Players in the darkly humourous game are competing conspiracies and the aim is to dominate. The game consists of hundreds of cards (637, I believe) drawn from the rich vein of conspiracy theory. Still, as we all know, there is no such thing as coincidence in that world.
