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.
