Mormon cultist accused of rape

A few of you may take umbrage at calling a Mormon offshoot religion a cult when many people consider Mormonism a cult all by itself. I don’t want to go down that rabbit hole at the moment, so please let it pass.

Geody Harman is the co-founder of Church of the Firstborn of the General Assembly of Heaven, a Mormon offshoot cult. He also thinks of himself as God on earth. That’s the excuse he’s likely to use for his alleged rape of a 15-year-old girl.

Charging documents allege Harman had sex with the teen in Utah and that she told investigators another church leader encouraged her to do so because Harman was God. The documents say the girl reported having sex with Harman one time because she believed she would be blessed.

He’s a nutball.

Dalton says he grew up as a Mormon but received a revelation in 2004 — in which Jesus Christ called him the Holy Ghost — that he should start a new church.

What’s the penalty for rape of a child these days? 25 years?
