Bible Student Charged in Phone Sex Case

Here is another example of Xian “morals”. Of course, xians will say that this young man was not a True Christian™ and the devil made him do it:

OWATONNA, Minn. - A student at Pillsbury Baptist Bible College was charged in the theft of his roommate’s debit card, which was used to pay for more than $2,300 worth of calls to phone sex lines, prosecutors allege in court papers.

(This is what sexual repression and all that preaching about abstinence leads to.)

Shane Erin Mack, 20, of Belt, Mont., was charged with the gross misdemeanors of identity theft and theft by false representation. He made his first court appearance on Monday. Bail was set at $2,500. He remained in jail Tuesday afternoon.

Steele County prosecutor Scott Schrener said investigators only had documentation in hand for about $500 worth of calls, but the victim reported that $2,350 worth of calls had been made. Schrener said the criminal charges could be upgraded in the future.

The calls were made from March 23 to May 13, according to court papers.

Mack allegedly told investigators he admitted taking the debit card out of his roommate’s wallet and using it to make up to 30 calls to adult phone lines from public phones on campus, the criminal complaint said.

College spokesman Tom Lawson said Mack would not be allowed to return to the school when classes resume in the fall. According to the college Web site, the college offers a Christian “education program which imparts a biblical worldview.”

And what may be this “biblical worldview” exactly??? OT worldview of “it’s ok to have sex with slaves, concubines and your own daughters”, or NT worldview of “it’s ok to rape virgins?”

A call to the public defender who represented Mack in court on Monday was not immediately returned.

Mack’s next court appearance was scheduled for June 1.

Somewhat off thread, but have you heard that Indonesia's parliament is considering a bill that would make it a crime to kiss in public? Now if it gets signed into law, I couldn't think of a better or more fun act of public disobedience than for a large crowd of people to engage in a public smooching session!

That's so funny. I agree with your analysis - This is what abstinence-only education, the Bible and sexual repression will do to you. No wonder there are so many fundamentalists' daughters in the porno industry. Christianity ruins people, I tell ya!

tommykey - I read something about this in Yahoo news. It would be great to get a bunch of people together and kiss in public there. People arrested for showing affection. What a world!

frances - One thing that I shake my head about in our travels about the country is how abundant xxx-rated "bookstores" are in the rural south. You have your "Jeebus saves" signs and go a few hundred yards and there is a "topless dancer" sign or x-rated this and that advertised on giant billboards!

Seems like fundies are OBSESSED with something they are trying to deprive themselves and everyone else of...sex. The biggest issues they are concerned with are related to sex: abortion, pornography, gay sex, sex, sex, sex! But some of these sexually repressed religious folks are the biggest adulterers, child molesters, perverts imaginable.
And many of them have half a dozen kids per family. hmmmm. I think they are the ones who need help.
