Well the rumor mill this morning was that the victim was/is his own daughter.

That's pretty much confirmed by the prosecutor citing that specific chapter of the Penal Code.

But why is the threshold "three or more acts"?

You mean if you sexually molest a child once or twice every three months, that's ok?

The law ought to be if you even so think of acting you should be convicted and castrated.

Pretty much shows you that religion is nothing but a farce for very sick, dysfunctional people to hide behind.

You are finally being heard Nancy! Those who chose to believe him and ignore your pleas for help, should be ashamed. Justice is on the way Nancy. I miss you so much. Love, Jan

Religion??? Hmmm.... Or could it be living in Arcata? Or could it be living in America? Or could it be from watching TV or viewing the internet...sick people hide behind watching TV or viewing the internet, too!

Not every one that cries Lord, Lord will enter into the Kingdom. Don't lump all christians in the the same catagory with this 'pastor.' I choose to be a christian, I choose to be like HIM, meaning Jesus Christ.. This man is obviously not choosing to be like Him....

I KNEW as soon as I read the code in the article that someone would comment about how it must be okay if you molest a kid under three times. There's 1000's of codes. There are other penal codes,(288 PC, for example), that pertain to single acts of molestation. So no, rest assured that it's not okay to molest any kid any number of times.

It seems we should pass a law banning churches from being built within 1000 yards of schools and daycares.

Great idea! We could have a version of the Megan's Law website with a list of staff and their photos.

Matt- ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!!!!! Yuck!

Judgement may be in the house of God, but it is right here, right now too! And, anbody else with skeleton's in their closet such as these should be in jail as well. Yuck! People like you that make excuses for these people only encourage their sick behavior. My church would never condone this. Let me know which one you belong to so I can NEVER attend.

That can't be true. The church opposes telescopes and what they reveal about the universe. Just ask Galileo.

This is devastating. Put your stones down and pray for Dino's kids (he's a widow), for the church, and for Dino. To "Someone", no one's laundry is perfectly clean - that's why we all need Jesus!

I cant blame religion for this mans actions no more than I cant blame Caucasians for slavery, Muslims for 9-11 or Germans for the concentration camps. There are horrible, sick people everywhere! Some in positions of authority. There are pedophiles in the schools, offices on Wall Street, bars and yes churches. We must keep our eyes, ears and hearts open and be ready to act! Blaming religion is a serious cop-out.

As shocking as all this is, don't be shocked! While a nice man (they always are), he neglected his wife, enjoyed material things and a large home, had little remorse, allegedly hit disabled children, and openly listed his income at $150,00-250,000. And he's mighty slick, to boot.

I don't know,'sociopath' comes to mind here. But wait! There's more! Read on.

This is happening all across the country. Yes, Sociopaths! This is not an isolated case. Folks, take care and beware.

Sociopaths represent 4% of our population--or--1 in 25 individuals (!) that have no conscience or guilt, disguise it well, and mimic our normal emotions and responses. They can reach high positions of power and authority and use this to their advantage. Yes, these folks, sociopaths, could be living in the neighborhood, down your street, or even next door.

Want proof of more pastors, reverends, youth ministers, etc., engaging in sexual abuse, fraud, embezzlement, and the like? This will rock your world, he's here, and there's many similar sociopathic folks taking advantages of their positioms of trust over others in 2010. This link was a fascinatng read and quite an education:
