Color me surprised - a California minister who was a donor to the Proposition 8 campaign has been caught allegedly molesting children. Not only is Mr. Sanctity supposedly a man of God, he's also a foster parent and daycare provider. The Sacramento Bee has the details:
Citrus Heights Police announced late Thursday that Tom Gene Daniels, 48, was arrested Dec. 9. Lt. Ray Bechler said police had postponed publicizing the arrest while they continued their investigation into the case.
Bechler said the charges against Daniels involve incidents that allegedly occurred between June 2004 and June 2007. Citrus Heights Police investigated an initial complaint in 2008 but were unable to come up with enough evidence for the DA to file charges, he said. In recent months, another victim came forward. The district attorney filed charges Dec. 9, and Daniels was arrested the same day.
It reminds me of Jamie Kilstein's fantastic rant about religious fundies. He says, "If God designed marriage for a man and a woman, statistics say that God is failing. Just look at recently divorced homophobe Karl Rove or fat fuck, drug addict, three time divorced Rush Limbaugh, or two time divorced Newt Gingrich, or otherwise straight and homophobic pastor Ted Haggard who hired a male prostitute to shame fist him into a meth coma. They say that being gay is immoral. Really?! I'd rather my kid spend the weekend with the flaming queer couple down the street than have them spend another night at the church with Father Diddlyhands."
Everyone say, "Amen."
