The previous private school headmaster suffered for his very real spanking/kissing/fondling crimes that he committed repeatedly, for at least over a decade, with multiple boy victims. This next guy has a longer and more elusive track record, decades long, from state to state, and even from country to country. He seems to be a modern, child-molesting version of the old, smooth talking, snake oil salesman who traveled from town to town. This guy sells his “Christian spanking elixir” to people who have all too willing “itching ears” until the dull public finally begins to smell a rat, at which point he packs up and moves before the heat gets too hot. He picks places that allow strangers to “administer” corporal punishment in churches and schools, and he “moves in” and removes children’s and adolescent’s underwear under that pretense. The people in each place and time that he visits (I added, “time” because people can get educated on this issue) are backward and ignorant of what he is doing. No matter how blatant it gets, he is correctly certain that they will never charge him with a sex crime, even though that is clearly what is troubling the town and what is on all of their minds. If they did, then the local populace would have to undo their doublethink and admit that a man spanking a child could be sexual abuse. No paddling community in America ever has or ever will do that. He occasionally got charged with some trivial crimes, but none involved any sexual charges, even when spanking/sex abuse is the overwhelming and obvious sole motivation. In the Phoenix Baptist school case we’ll look at, if memory serves, the only charge against this “bare butt paddler” of teen girls was that he prevented the mother, who spoke no English and was confused by the whole thing, and daughter from leaving his office. I didn’t follow the story afterwards, but I doubt they were able to prove that in court. Here’s part of the story:
A few years ago in Conacht Baptist Church in Phoenix, a private school principal had a 15-year-old girl in his office. She was being interviewed for admission into the school. He questioned her mother and found that her daughter had misbehaved at home (big surprise huh?). He decided, then and there, to have the teen girl strip naked before him, get down on “all fours,” put her face to the floor with her bare butt (and bare vagina and bare labia) high in the air, and recite the Lord’s Prayer while he paddled her. The church and church/school appeared to be in agreement, at least on some level, with this type of “training for adolescents.” Mom was confused and wasn’t sure. She reported it afterwards to the, also confused, police. It is important to note that if mom either approved, or was too confused to say anything, then this abuse could have went on to this and other victims, and no-one else involved ever would have reported it. We would never have heard of this case, just as no one in the outside world has heard any of the cases of the women Cathy and I interviewed.
Even with this extremely obvious, sexually charged, spanking abuse, at least half of the Baptist church people continued to support him. Many thought men giving “bare-butt” spankings and paddlings to adolescent girls was “ok”—and many of them without a doubt did the same to any young women they could hold of as well. Others, who recognized and admitted the sexual abuse aspects, immediately assumed that the girl and her mother “must have been lying.” If the girl had been in the room alone with the paddler, or with a paddle-friendly “witness,” it is likely her story would have been challenged and dismissed at every level. As a child victim alone with a powerful, abusive, manipulative adult man, she might have been more confused herself about what happened exactly.
Many such victims are too afraid and ashamed to even tell their parents what exactly happened. They try desperately to “put it behind them” quietly, and “move on” past the abuse, without dealing with it, or asking for help, or reporting it to anyone, ever. Any sexual thoughts she had related to the abuse would have made her feel even guiltier and dirtier afterwards, and more apt to hide it. If she became more promiscuous and got involved in pornography production or stripping, perhaps with a spanking theme, into adulthood. That too would have made her feel even guiltier, dirtier, and “deserving” of the adolescent abuse that started the whole cascade of her later actions. Finding an abusive or violent man to continue “spanking” or beating her into married life, perhaps then escalating in violence and ending in divorce, would have also made her personally feel like a failure, deserving of the childhood beatings, when they themselves were likely a contributing cause to her later life choices. Had she been alone in the room, or had her mother approved or been too afraid to complain, then her case could have been buried just as it was so many times with our Canadian spanking/porno empire principal, who’s victims over the years were called liars, or their fears simply dismissed, while his abuse went on for decades.
As the truth came out they discovered that their “holy” and beloved “Christian” principal was, in fact, an international charlatan. He had a long record of sexual charges (but not convictions) from various schools he had founded and worked in. The Baptist church/school, it’s parents, preacher, elders, and deacons, were the all-too-willing dupes of a child spanking sex fiend. Fooling these “sheep” was profoundly easy. They wanted to be fooled, and he just took advantage. Their “bare butt” children and adolescents were offered to him for abuse on a silver platter. If that mother had supported the bare butt paddling, he would be there to this day most likely. The only blinders he needed were charm and the “spanking subterfuge.”
His history of spanking/sex abuse charges, the ones that we know of anyway, occurred in England, where he had boys strip naked for caning, California, where he had a schoolgirl strip naked so he could “fit her uniform on her," and Conacht Baptist Church/school in Phoenix for "bare butt prayer paddling” of a 15-year-old girl. Who knows where else he’d been where the story stayed quieter, or for that matter where he is now, and what he is doing?
I haven’t followed up on this case. For critics who demand, “why not,” lets just say these types of cases are overwhelming. I can’t follow them all or keep up. If you are lucky some court action makes the news here and there, and if I’m lucky I hear of a few of those. It’s possible he’s “teaching” in some “strict” private church academy now, maybe in the backwoods of Georgia, Mississippi, or the metro Dallas area of Texas, where no one would ever question anything. Perhaps he’s taking in foster children in one of eight or nine states, like Michigan, that allow foster parents to spank and don’t put any restrictions on whether it is “bare butt” or anything else. If so he would essentially be receiving state “child protection” money for dishing out the very type of physical and sexual “spanking” child abuse that he loves to do to kids. The “foster butt daddies” in states that allow it are, many times, at least equally abusive as the abusive “daddies” the kids were taken from—only taxpayers now fund the child abuse under the pretense of “ending abuse.” I’m guessing that, in any case, if he’s alive and free, that he has somehow moved on to some other pasture of helpless child victims in some backward community who “need his strict, bare-butt discipline.” He does not have to look far in the Southern United States, even as years ago he didn’t have to look far in England or California. Time is a factor too, and I hope the South wakes up and he and his ilk soon find they can’t pull the wool over Southerner’s eyes either.
