Jared Anderson, 28, a Texas high school English teachers and group leader at his local church has confessed to hosting parties at his house where he engaged in at least ten boys in sodomite conduct and encouraged the boys to strip down, get drunk and do the same with each other.
Police say Anderson hosted parties at his house on several occasions and invited teenage boys. One of these parties happened February 12th with seven boys ranging from 15 to 17 years old. There was a sign on the door reading, “The last one to strip naked loses.”
Police say all of the boys got naked and Anderson coerced them into lewd conduct. Police also say Anderson and another 17-year-old boy exchanged pictures of each other’s genitals.
Detectives say some of the victims’ parents handed over apologies that Anderson sent in text messages and one voicemail.
He is now charged with two counts of sexual performance of a child and one count of indecency with a child. His bond as been set at $150,000. But there are not done with this investigation, and say there could be as many as 12 charges before it’s all over.
“One of the incidents involved (the) suspect having “bros night” at his house on Feb. 12, at which time 7 boys ranging from 15 to 17 years of age attended. There was a sign at the door reading ‘The last one to get naked has to get the first dare,'” according to San Antonio Police Department. “Another incident involved suspect challenging a 17 year old to see who can be the most obscene. It involved the Suspect and the 17 year old of sending pictures of their genitals to each other. The incident was reported last week to the church and the church banned Suspect from returning.”
“If there’s that many, there’s always a possibility there could be more,” said SAPD Sgt Jesse Salame. “These are disgusting, heinous acts committed against the boys. We’re happy to have got him very quickly.”
Though News4SA reports 7 boys, other outlets are reporting between 7 and 10.
Authorities said he and a boy also exchanged graphic pictures.
Anderson is also married and a father of two. I can’t imagine what his wife is going through.
Judson High School, where Anderson had been employed as an English teacher for two and a half years, issued a statement saying that he had been “put on administrative leave pending the results of an investigation being conducted by San Antonio Police of allegations of sexual misconduct.”
Friends, this is not just “sex acts.” This is the Sodom culture. We need to stop referring to males engaging in this behavior with other males as “sex.” That is equating it with true sexual intercourse that was designed by the Creator to be between a man and a woman in marriage. When men and women who aren’t married engage each other sexually, we call it fornication. When those married engage a member of the opposite sex outside of their marriage, we call it adultery. Why do we not call members of the same sex who engage each other sexually sodomites who are engaging in sodomy? That is what it is. It certainly isn’t “gay.”
Anderson is a Mormon. His assembly has banned him and issued a statement that they have zero tolerance for his behavior:
“The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has zero tolerance for abuse of any kind. When we learned of the situation, local leaders reported it immediately to law enforcement. Anderson has been removed from all responsibilities within the local congregation. The Church is supportive of the efforts of authorities to investigate and prosecute this matter.”
Perhaps if the LDS Church would have sided with Orthodox Christianity when Joseph Smith went off into his heresies, especially about polygamy and all sorts of sexual immorality, then they would at least be a bit more consistent.
