Gay Lutheran Pastor Arrested for Possession of Child Porn

Published

on

A gay Lutheran Pastor with a history of fighting for gay rights within the church was arrested for possession of child pornography in mid November.

“The Reverend Steven Sabin, pastor at Christ Church Lutheran at Quintara Street and 20th Avenue, was arrested November 15 on three felony charges,” according to Bay Area Reporter. 

Sabin pleaded not guilt to one count of distribution of child pornography and two counts of possession or control of child pornography. According to a San Francisco Police Department news release, the investigators “located a cellphone belonging to Sabin, which contained hundreds of child pornography videos and images depicting juvenile minors being sexually abused. During a subsequent search, investigators found that Sabin was storing child pornography on a cloud storage application.”

Sabin was thrown out of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ECLA) for being gay in 1998, an event which made national news at the time. He later joined the Christ Church Lutheran, a more “progressive” branch of the organization. Christ Church Lutheran San Francisco, where Sabin was a pastor, posted the following message on its website in late November:

“We have learned of the arrest of Steve Sabin, who will no longer serve as pastor of Christ Church Lutheran. We are concerned for and ask for prayers for all affected, including all victims of sexual misconduct and for the people of the congregation of Christ Church. We will cooperate fully with law enforcement. We have zero tolerance for clergy sexual misconduct and are committed to providing safe spaces for all children and youth in our church.”

The Lutheran Church has become quite progressive over the past two decades. The ECLA, from which Sabin was booted for being gay, now accepts openly gay pastors, even one who teaches “sex positivity” and is asking young women to send her their purity rings so she can mold them into a large golden vagina. Needless to say, this is contrary to biblical teachings.

Prosecutors Salivate at ‘No Evidence’ Precedent Established for Sexual Assault Cases After Weinstein Conviction

Due process and the presumption of innocence are under attack.

Published

on

As many cheer after predatory scumbag and sex pervert Harvey Weinstein was convicted of rape charges earlier this week, ambitious prosecutors are salivating at the precedent set by the case, which may be applied to individuals not as sleazy and well-connected as the former Hollywood mogul.

Weinstein was convicted of third-degree rape despite the fact that there was no physical evidence of any crimes taking place, the supposed victims maintained their relationships with him years after the incidents occurred, and the alleged crimes were not reported for many years after the fact. The flimsy evidence was bolstered by “expert testimony” from activist feminists telling the jury essentially to believe all women, no matter what.

Profit-seeking attorneys and heavy-handed prosecutors see a golden opportunity in the “no evidence” standard that the case has set moving forward.

“This is a new day,” Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said following Weinstein’s verdict. “Rape is rape whether the survivor reports within an hour, within a year or perhaps never. It’s rape despite the complicated dynamics of power and consent after an assault. It’s rape even if there is no physical evidence.”

“There’s always the fear of coming forward, you know, going through a trial, getting beat up and humiliated and then not getting that verdict. Now that they see it can be done, I think more people will come forward and definitely empower the movement,” said criminal defense attorney Richard Kaplan.

“Now there is a roadmap on how you can win this kind of case,” he added.

“I hope that prosecutors, all over this country, and all over the world, look at this case and realize that rape trials can be won,” said attorney Carrie Goldberg, who represented one of Weinstein’s accusers in court, “and that these aren’t just ‘he said, she said’ stories, but they’re actually crimes that are winnable and need to be brought.”

“This case challenges our notions of what is force in a sexual relationship, what is lack of consent in a sexual relationship,” said New York defense attorney Paul DerOhannesian, who specializes in sexual assault cases.

The Weinstein verdict, which is being hailed as a tremendous victory for justice by conservatives and liberals alike, may have ripped the lid off of Pandora’s box. This could be the opportunity that the #MeToo witch hunt uses to finish off due process and the presumption of innocence once and for all.
