Iowa pastor rapes boys to "cure" them of homosexuality

And it's looking like he won't even spend real time in jail for it.

What is wrong with people that they let people get away with this kind of thing with just a slap on the wrist?

  • I can not say what is wrong with them. I will say if he truly believes what was said in the article he needs some time in a mental institution.

  • I really am at a loss for words. I don't imagine that works out for anyone. Hopefully karma gets him before too long. Though the state should even before that.

  • nnh_mama - do we know that the parents were sending the kids to be "cured"? Maybe they believed they were sending the kids to a youth group activity.

    This is shocking and disgusting, and right in my own area. I watch my kids pretty carefully and I don't trust anyone to be alone with them. The guy should have been put away for many years.

  • "He's a pedophile! Is there anything at all that can be done?"

    Honestly, I'm not sure. I hope so.
