For Once, Blame It on the Naughty Bits
The God-anointed Messiah (aka Wayne Bent, 66, the founder of the apocalyptic church The Lord Our Righteousness Church) acknowledged having sex with three women — the wives of two of his followers and his daughter in law. He said it was at the direction of God and the instigation of the women. (emphasis mine)
Just once I'd like one of these people with a direct line to God to stop hiding behind everybody's skirts -- God, instigating women, provocative underage boys and girls -- and just assume responsibility for their acts.
How about the truth: "What with being busy propheting about and, wouldn't you know it, at the same time being tingly in my naughty bits, I, all by my own self, decided to have sexual relations with my followers' wives as well as my son's wife and, [allegedly] a minor here and there. You know, how you do when you're the God Whisperer ... um ... or Whisperee, whatever."
On a more serious note, this sounds ominous:
In a lengthy discussion dated Sept. 11, 2007, Bent said his work is finished and he does not expect to be "in the earthly sphere" much longer.
Unclear if this particular Messiah is suicidal or homicidal.
