Prayers broadcast for Ontario paedophile

Prayers broadcast for Ontario paedophile

Ontario’s Christian “superstation” – Life 103 – has been praying for one of  its presenters, Jason McIntyre, 26, above, who pleaded guilty on June 10 to sexual charges relating to three young boys, and possessing child pornography.

According to this report, Scott Jackson, the station manager, said in a statement that Life 103 was currently awaiting further developments in McIntyre’s court case.

He hasn’t been sentenced so I’m waiting for that information. In the meantime, as a Christian radio station we are praying for Jason and his family.

McIntyre – known as “Jay Mac” – is scheduled to be sentenced on July 6 in Huntsville court.

Five days after he was convicted, the presenter’s profile was removed from the “Announcer Bios” section of  the station’s website.

McIntyre pleaded guilty on June 10 in the Huntsville courthouse to two counts of inviting sexual touching someone under 16, one count of luring a child, one count of child pornography and two related counts of breach of recognizance. The charges involve three separate boys: a 12-year-old, and two 14-year-olds.

Crown attorney Lindsay Jeanes entered a thick stack of documents as an exhibit that detailed numerous sexually explicit texts, Skype and Facebook conversations between McIntyre and the victims.

When police spoke with the 12-year-old victim the child revealed McIntyre had just shown up on his Facebook page one day. He also said the older man had asked him to send a naked picture of himself, which he had done.

When police arrested McIntyre and seized his phone, they found the naked picture of the 12-year-old boy still on it. The phone also revealed conversations with a number of other young boys, two of which resulted in convictions.

Said Jeanes:

Besides the three chats for which charges have been laid, there were a number of other chats found on his phone that involved the accused and young males who indicate they reside with their parents and are in high school. The specific age is not known. McIntyre is usually the initiator of these conversations.

One of the conversations that resulted in a conviction was with a 14-year-old boy when McIntyre was 24. The conversations between the two were described as explicit and often sexual.

When police located that boy, he said that there had been a physical sexual relationship.

The final conversation, which resulted in a conviction, was with another 14-year-old boy who described McIntyre as “a role model”. The pair met through church and would attend Christian events together.

At one point, McIntyre told that 14-year-old boy that it’s difficult to be gay because ”religion hates you” and that’s why he no longer goes to church, the court heard.

    They are always more concerned about their members and their own reputation than they are about the victims. I have seen this in operation myself. Members are only excluded for doctrinal error, where “purity” is demanded, and not over “moral weaknesses”, where repentance and remorse are always shown . They even have chapter and verse for this:

    There will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents, than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

    I have seen “kangaroo courts” in operation myself, and guilty parties kept from the civil courts, with devastating results in some cases.

    @barriejohn

    Spot on! They should be prayng for the victims, not the bloody perpetrator. Have they no shame? (Rhetorical question, BTW.)

  4. gedediah says:

    Damn those children and their seductive ways. They’ve tempted our Christian brother from the true path and we must help him find it again…… or somthing.

  5. Angela_K says:

    More evidence that no matter how disgusting the crime, the religious have gullible fools to proclaim innocence and make it OK with their god.

  6. Stuart H. says:

    At least the police acted in this case.

    In one round my way, some years ago, a preacher caught with underage girls was prayed for and visited every day in his short prison sentence by fellow evangelicals from a church where a senior police officer was an elder, then helped to resettle elsewhere when he came out – for the second time in just over a decade, as I later found out.

    Incidentally, the prison sentence was so short because police officers persuaded the families of all but one victim that it would be less hassle to leave the area than to testify.

    Never ,ever, underestimate the hypocrisy of evangelicals with easy prey for cash or sex.

    Adventurous teenagers will accept drugs in exchange for illegal sex. Most drug dealers have youngsters without money begging for drugs—human sex nature prevails. Narco cops have to be on the lookout for teeny boppers surrounding horny drug dealers.

    Remember this case, covered here (enter Cundick in the Search Box)?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-surrey-30840231

    Cundick’s father was a really well-known Plymouth Brethren speaker, but almost unintelligible due to both his “refined” but strangulated Welsh accent, and obscure subject-matter. I had a book of his on Matthew’s Gospel and you couldn’t understand that either!

    Oh, no; here’s another one, covered here only recently, getting off almost scot free (no pun intended!):

    http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2015/06/17/molesting-preacher-walks-free-after-sheriff-says-he-already-suffered-a-spectacular-fall-from-grace/

    “The criminal justice social work report has assessed you as suitable for a community-based disposal, and in addition you have already suffered a spectacular fall from grace.”

    “He molested me and now he walks free.”

    “So many other women who he has attacked will now not come forward because they are scared of what may happen.

    “These women will think, what is the point?

    “I do not know what planet this is but it is wrong.”

    This horrific story is further evidence of how corrupt institutional authorities continue to have the ability to abuse our children with their perceived power.

    Even after conviction and guilty plea, supported with harsh evidence of abuse against minor children, this Christian radio station is requesting prayers for the charged and convicted pedophile with no remorse for the young innocent children? Will this war crime committed against our babies ever be acknowledged as a crime by the faithful and not a sin?

  11. Brenda Brunelle says:

    Child Sexual Abuse is a war crime committed against our children. This story is unimaginable. Pray for the pedophile? It is time that these institutional religious orders recognize that sexual abuse is a CRIME and not a sin.
    No remorse for the victims, only requesting prayers for the guilty.

    Shame on them.
    Brenda

  12. JohnMWhite says:

    Same as it ever was, the connected and faithful get away with all sorts of crimes so long as their victims are people who don’t seem to matter. If they leaked some incriminating documents instead of molesting women and children, their feet wouldn’t touch the ground.

  13. Broga says:

    They seem to be praying to the God who gave him his perverted lusts in the first place.

  14. Jeffrey Jones says:

    @Barrie John. Perhaps Cundick’s father was speaking and writing in Welsh, and that’s why he was incomprehensible:-)

  15. barriejohn says:

    Jeffrey Jones: If I were to say that perhaps he thought in Welsh, I might get into trouble! You can actually listen to him here, and make up your own mind:

    I just can’t understand how some adults find children sexually attractive…nor do i understand a serial rapist, or murder. I think Hitchens covered it best;

    “There seems to be no easy way to discuss this other than in personal or individual terms. You and I have no idea what it is like to be a sociopath-someone that does not care about other people except inasmuch or they serve his turn-or a psychopath-someone who deserves actual delight from inflicting misery on others. But we know that such people exist, and that they must be guarded against. I regard their existence as part of our haphazard evolution and our kinship with a nature that often favors the predator. You do not. Indeed, you apparently adopt the immoral and suicidal doctrine that advocates forgiveness for those who would destroy us. Please take care not to forgive my enemies, or the enemies of society. If I have to call such people “Evil” (and I find I have no other alternative), I do not deduce peaceful coexistence from that observation and do not want you being tender to them when it is my family’s life that is at stake.”

    Met a fellow male that shared BJs when we were both 16 and we really loved it.Years later we met when both married and did it again, but it was better the first time.Those that stop teens from having oral or any type of freaky sex should be bitch slapped. Trash that mythological bible with its bogus Jesus.

  18. Robster says:

    I know that followers of the god/Jesus nonsense are required to believe silly, insane dogma but are they expected to be sexually compromised before being accepted into the Christian fold? I’ve read that a sexual lust for the under 13’s is required for acceptance by the catholic church but now it seems the other side, the Protestants have this requirement also. Is this what they teach in seminaries?

  19. JohnMWhite says:

    Robster, where did you read that paedophilia is required for acceptance by the Catholic Church? The church is full of monsters and has insane dogma but that one just isn’t true.

  20. Melvin Polatnick says:

    Dads are the ones doing 98% of the child fucking. If it its ok with the mom it is mostly overlooked. Some say child fucking parents should be jailed and the child sent to an orphanage. But kids will likely be sexually violated by the staff in an orphanage. Child fucking is wrong, dads and moms must control their sexual impulses.
