Christian Coalition leader accused of molesting generations of family members
Via Wayne Besen, yet another sick, pious hypoctrite that needs to be added to the Conservative Values Monitor. Two of the cases occurred more than 10 years ago, and in Oregon, the statute of limitations on sex abuse cases is six years. One case, however, does fall within the timeline for prosecution – the abuse of an elementary-school age female family member. Gee, all the wingers tell me that only homos are the depraved child abusers, not fine, upstanding Christians like Louis Beres…
The Oregonian reported today that police are investigating complaints that Louis Beres, longtime chairman of the Christian Coalition of Oregon, molested three female pre-teen family members.
“I was molested,” said one of the women, now in her early 50s. “I was victimized, and I’ve suffereall my life for it. I’m still afraid to be in the same room with (Beres).”
Rich Galat, 41, of Oakland, Calif., is Beres’ nephew. He said he told detectives that Beres has molested several female family members over two generations.
“My family has gone through hell,” Galat said. “Lives have been ruined. Those of us who have come forward have been ostracized, verbally abused and the victims of character assassination…It must stop.”
The details are new, but the story is ancient. The very right wing zealots who want to tell everyone how to live are the very people most likely to be knee-deep in sin. These creeps are so filled with guilt that they often project their own insecurities and sick longings into the political arena. Imagine this pig working to keep loving same-sex couples from marrying, in an effort to supposedly save the American family! The hypocrisy is breathtaking.
One should note that the CC’s web site describes itself as ‘Oregon’s leading grassroots organization defending our Godly heritage.’
