JoeMyGod has some shocking, yet not so surprising, news on the same-sex marriage front: “Pastor Tom Daniels of Rio Linda, California is being held on $6M bail after being charged with multiple felony counts of sexual assault on a child.” Lavender Newswire notes that that the Baptist pastor “twice made donations to Protect Marriage, the backers of Proposition 8..”
Daniels, who donated $230 to stop gay marriage in California back in 2008, allegedly sexually assaulted a 14-year-old, though police suspect he has more victims that have yet to come forward. He has, so far, been charged with six felony child molestation acts.
