Oklahoma Missionary Sentenced To 40 Years For Sexual Assaulting Kenyan Orphans


A 21-year-old Oklahoma man was sentenced on Monday to 40 years in prison for sexually assaulting orphaned children while on a missionary trip in Kenya in 2014.

Matthew Lane Durham was found guilty on four counts of "engaging in illicit sexual conduct in foreign places" in June, BuzzFeed reports. A federal judge sentenced Durham this week to 40 years in prison, and ruled that he must pay the victims $15,863 in restitution.

"In a span of just 33 days," prosecutors wrote, per CNN, Durham "raped three girls -- ages 5, 9 and 15 -- at least eight times. During that same time period, he sexually molested a 12-year-old boy twice." They added that Durham "not only forcefully sexually abused these children," but "he psychologically damaged them by taking advantage of their trust he received from the children."


Seriously, what the hell? What is it with the Christian religion and attracting these sickos? The bastard isn't even ashamed of his actions. He pleaded not guilty, and check this quote out from him.


"All I wanted was to follow God’s plan for me," he told the courtroom on Monday. "In the end, it is the judgment of God that is central, not the judgment of man. I do not fear God's judgment of me."


Naturally, he claims he was possessed. *eye roll*. I'm glad the courts didn't buy that load of #. This isn't the 1600's anymore, perverts can't hide behind religious superstition to get off from being perverts. This guy needs to face the music.

Why was he tried in the United States? Is child molestation not a crime in Kenya? I'm fairly certain that this monster would have gotten much worse than 40-years if the Kenyans had their way with him.

Disgusting

Well, that's one way to bring Jesus to the little heathens. Speaks volumes about the "love of God" through his "elect", doesn't it?

40 years in prison?


Durham "raped three girls -- ages 5, 9 and 15 -- at least eight times. During that same time period, he sexually molested a 12-year-old boy twice."

The punishment that this guy deserves he will unfortunately never receive.

That being said....

Why not add your outrage to the abuses that have occurred under the UN as well in that region. (psst where no charges and no punishment occurred.)

The guy is a monster using religion to try and get away with it, but go ahead and blame the religion if that makes you feel better.

A lot of recently raped Europeans would disagree.

Yea. Good idea. I usually don't agree with laws coming out of Alabama, but I just can't find anything wrong with that...

It's true. Religion does attract these sub-humans. So does government, and any other place they can infect, that gives them unhindered access to their victims. Like it or not, sexual deviancy is rampant in the church. I dealt with it first-hand, and heard from pastors and other counselors that it is a big problem for the church, and one of its "best kept secrets". Fortunately, most pastors and counselors will report it pronto. But then, what do you expect when you consistently oppress, and make dirty, a natural part of who we are as a species. It's going to come out some where, and it isn't gonna be pretty.

This has got to be the most foolish thing he could have said. Granted, I'm not religious at all, but I'd like to believe that if "God" were real, then he should fear his judgement most of all. If he truly believes in his religion, then he'll be the one that will have to face "God" and explain to him why he felt the need to diddle children when he was supposed to be spreading the "good word".

I can just imagine the godly eyeroll that could come of any excuse he makes.

He thinks he's ok in the eyes of God because of this:

Durham testified that he thought he was possessed by a demon named Luke who did "horrible things," and said he struggled with his sexuality.


"I'm not a bad person, a demon made me do it." Standard Christian cop-out.

To play devil's advocate here, it's not religion that draws these sickos to it, and it's foolish to label it as such. What really draws these sickos out is power. More often than not, whenever you read about cases like this, it's someone who's been put in a position of power/trust. Doesn't matter if it's as low as a babysitter, father, uncle, friend, clergyman, politician, or in this case, missionary. It's usually done by someone who's put in a position of power/trust who believes that because of their position they won't be caught.

Something tells me that this guy felt he'd be ok because of the fact that he's a missionary in another country. He probably felt that even if they spoke up, who would believe them??

He may think he's ok in the eyes of god, but is he truly?? We as humans know he's full of #, so in all fairness an almighty wise being would know better as well. I'm sure his eyeroll would be epic. lol

Lol yea. Good point. God would know better anyways. He's only fooling himself (and anyone gullible enough to believe him).

I do not fear God's judgment of me.


Typical Religious Nut, in name only.

No true believer would ever say this.


May sound like a No True Scotsman fallacy, but the fact is there is a tonne of scripture that tells believers to Fear God's Judgement.
