Didn’t hear about this until a commenter at Boundless mentioned it. According to letters released by federal prosecutors last week as part of the government’s sentencing memorandum, Schaap wrote to the teen that his sexual relationship with her was “exactly what Christ desires for us. He wants to marry us + become eternal lovers!”
While it is true that “boys will be boys”, there are some things–whether you are Christian or not–that you just don’t freaking do. Ever. There are some lines–particularly when it comes to sex, whether you are Christian or not–that you don’t freaking cross. Ever. The two Steubenville football players crossed those lines. The community–seeking to […]
If Lisa Biron is representative of the caliber of people representing the Biblical perspective on the issues of the day, then I would suggest that the Christian right is hosed.

Former teacher Christopher Hooker–the 41-year-old scumbag who left his wife and children for an 18-year-old student at his high school–is now over a barrel. By playing as he has, (1) He no longer has a job; (2) He no longer has his family; (3) He no longer has the girl for whom he left his […]
WARNING: OBSCENITIES IN THIS POST In testimony today, Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary provided some explanation for what he saw and reported in the 2002 incident, in which McQueary allegedly saw former Defensive Coordinator Jerry Sandusky sodomizing a child in the showers. What is interesting here is the way he chose his words when […]
The latest Sandusky defense? He was teaching proper shower technique. This is worse than the “Pete Townshend defense.”
To say that former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky is in a mother lode of hot water would be an understatement. As it stands now, he has at least 10 credible accusers ready to flay him alive in court. And that is likely not to be the end of it. But his attorney–Joe Amendola–isn’t […]
