There are many thousands of these grifter whack-jobs (free-lance fundamentalist preachers) infesting suburbs and rural communities all over the country. They combine their loathsome ideology with MLM scams, real estate scams, health care supplement scams, plain begging, and (worst of all) their debased version of “Christian education.” They are a blight and a national disgrace, an industry of idiocy.
Whenever someone brings up the “rape debate” I instantly feel rage. There’s no “debate” - rape is rape! These people who try to blame women for being raped are some of the most detestable people walking the planet. There’s a huge difference between someone saying to be cognizant of the situations in which they put themselves, and saying that women basically “have it coming” if they happen to dress a certain way.
Which is essentially what this pathetic Arizona preacher Dean Saxton, who preaches under the name of Brother Dean Samuel, believes. Though it’s a stretch to even call him a “preacher.” Watching his interview, he just seems like a mentally disturbed individual who hates life and seems to want to try to make other people feel as miserable as he is.
While doing his interview with Vice he discussed why he protested outside a documentary about 1998 Miss World Pageant winner and rape victim Linor Abargil last month.
He said, “She is a beauty pageant contestant and there’s a lot of provocative, you know, seductive pictures of her that she has put out of herself. I believe that if she was at home, and if she had kept to her Orthodox Jewishness, that rape would really probably would not have happened.”
During his protest he shouted at women “give up your immodest clothing” and “yoga pants are sin.”
He went on to talk about how he agreed with a street preacher who once told him, “You know, if you dress like it, you act like it, different things like that, you’re asking for it - therefore, you deserve rape.”
So I have to wonder, if someone randomly walked up and assaulted this guy during these protests he does - would he press charges? After all, isn’t his behavior in attacking rape victims “asking for an ass kicking”? Isn’t he partially at fault?
