The reprobate mind of sodomites is utterly shocking. Galen Baughman, 32, was previously incarcerated and registered as a sex offender for engaging in oral sex with a 14-year-old boy. He later became a prominent advocate and spokesperson for sex offenders’ rights. Now, Baughman has been arrested for sexting a 16-year-old boy!
Baughman opened the Center for Sexual Justice. Seriously, I cannot even believe I’m writing this. However, on the April 23 weekend, Baughman turned himself in to police after he violated his parole and tested a 16-year-old boy.
About two months ago, Baughman’s work was abruptly interrupted when he foundout that his probation officer suspected him of violating the terms of his release. There were allegations that Baughman had exchanged inappropriate text messages with a 16-year-old boy. On March 3, Baughman was ordered to hand over his cellphone and his laptop. A month later, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest.
The official violation report, compiled by Baughman’s probation officer at the Virginia Department of Corrections, accused him of carrying on a monthslong correspondence with a boy in Minnesota whom he’d met at a mutual friend’s funeral. In late 2015, the boy’s mother had found text messages on her son’s phone that disturbed her, saved some of them, and alerted the Virginia State Police. Later, in an email to Baughman’s probation officer, she stated that she considered him a threat and expressed concern that he was “contacting other underage boys” he had met at the funeral.
The violation report, which I obtained from someone who received it directly from Baughman, noted that the terms of Baughman’s probation forbade him from having verbal or written contact with anyone younger than 18. The report included pages upon pages of text messages between Baughman and the unnamed 16-year-old.
In one of the messages, Baughman invites the teenager to come visit him in D.C. In another, he advises him to use Kik or Snapchat for “conversations you don’t want to be seen” by police or parents. Elsewhere, Baughman flirts (“Are you the best looking boy you know?”), shares wisdom (“If you’re magnetic, you can draw people into you and hold them there—they buy into you, believe you, love you”), and boasts (“My work is helping people and winning ever-increasing support!”).
In many of the messages, Baughman seems to be grasping for the teenager’s attention and pressuring him to talk on the phone: “Am I still on your list for tonight? Or do you not have time…?” At other points, he appears to be upset, badgering the teenager about his commitment to their friendship. “Since you’ve never answered the question about whether you care about me,” he writes in one message, “it’s pretty clear what the answer is.”
The unrepentant sodomite, and yes, that is what he is because he is not engaging females but males, said, “We’re all sex offenders.”
In 2004, Buaghman was incarcerated and registered as a sex offender when he engaged a 14-year-old boy in oral sex.
In a chat group Baughman said, “The probation officer’s claim that I should be arrested and held without bond for a first-time technical probation violation where no criminal behavior is asserted is ludicrous. Suggesting that I should be imprisoned for behavior that is neither harmful nor criminal is even more suspect.”
Baughman was 19 when he was arrested for giving oral sex to a 14-year-old boy. That is criminal and harmful. This man has a reprobate mind and the full force of the law should have been handed down to him.
Virginia prosecutors believe that Baughman fits the profile of a sexually violent predator and I tend to agree with them. This man shows no remorse over his crimes.
The Daily Mail reports:
He was eventually let out in 2012 and went on to become a loud and increasingly visible campaigner for the rights of people on the Sex Offenders’ Registry, hoping to redeem sex offenders in the public’s eyes.
He spoke to journalists on laws that affected people on the registry, wrote an essay decrying civil commitment that was praised in The Washington Post and gave a TEDx Talk titled ‘Are We all Sex Offenders?’
In the talk he described his civil commitment trial as ‘a witch trial’ in which he was barred from mounting a defense and the prosecution relied ‘almost entirely’ on the label sex offender.
He also said that the prosecution’s expert diagnosed him with ‘hebephilia’, which he described as ‘the psychiatric disorder of finding sexually mature teenagers attractive’.
‘It’s not a thing,’ he said. ‘If it were a thing most of humankind would be diagnosed with that disorder.’
I believe that the punishment for men like Baughman is the death penalty. I believe that because of what the Bible has to say about it and I think it would send a strong message to people like Baughman if we did so. That would be justice, not incarceration at the expense of law abiding citizens. Additionally, it would protect our children, something that man of us who actually love our kids want to do.
