Two Alabama men have been charged with imprisoning and filming their sexual abuse of a minor for use in child pornography made with the son of one of the accused.
Domestic partners Charles Dunnavant and Carl Herold face a litany of charges ranging from sexual torture and sodomy to exposing a person to an STD and child pornography production.
The young boy, only nine-years-old, was held hostage in the Huntsville house of horrors for eight months, during which he was sexually assaulted, abused, sodomized and exposed to an STD by both men while a camera caught all the depraved details, according to a court filing cited by WHNT. . . .
‘They held the child captive for eight months and there are no standards, taboos or lines this defendant and his co-defendant hesitated to cross,’ Huntsville Police Department investigator Chad Smith testified in court Monday, according to WHNT.
Yes, this is strictly a local news story:
Dunnavant lived with Herold in Huntsville. . . .
Dunnavant was arrested at a family home in Lincoln County, Tenn., Friday investigators said. During a hearing Monday seeking to raise Dunnavant’s bond from $276,000 cash-only to $1 million cash-only, Huntsville Police Department investigator Chad Smith testified he was contacted by the FBI in early November about the possibility of a child sex victim in Huntsville.
Smith said investigators came across numerous photos depicting sexual torture involving a child.
This has no ramifications or significance outside Alabama. However, if somebody says something that offends gay people . . .
Hyping the absurd Duck Dynasty controversy, Chad Griffin of the gay-rights lobby Human Rights Campaign said this: “Phil Robertson’s remarks are not consistent with the values of our faith communities or the scientific findings of leading medical organizations. We know that being gay is not a choice someone makes, and that to suggest otherwise can be incredibly harmful.”
Got that? It is “incredibly harmful” even to “suggest” that individuals are capable of rational action. No, according to “scientific finding,” we are told, sexual behavior is biologically determined, utterly beyond our control, and our sexual preferences are so hard-wired and overpowering that incredible harm will result if we attempt to conform our actions to moral ideals or social norms.
Ideas Have Consequences, as Richard Weaver once famously observed, and this idea — what I’ve called the “Desire Is Destiny” view of sexuality — has consequences far beyond the narrow and selfish purposes of HRC’s Chad Griffin, who is interested only in fundraising, political power and his own $360,000 annual pay.
Chad Griffin is not some idealistic humanitarian, you see. He’s a highly paid professional activist, a full-time anger merchant who oversees an organization whose top dozen officials, himself included, rake off a combined $2.56 million a year. Most people don’t understand that there is a sort of political industry at work — Gay, Inc. — and there are many hundreds of people who earn their livings from various gay advocacy groups, not to mention other similar gigs, e.g., “Queer Theory” professors at universities.
All these people wake up every morning and go to work where they spend the entire day laboring to destroy morality in America. Given the enormous resources and manpower devoted to this project, we certainly ought not be surprised by their successes.
And never mind what they might consider a “success.”
