This is man is horrible.
During the trial, Aryee testified and denied the allegations. His attorney argued that the victim was not a child, based on the fact that a birth certificate was never issued in Sierra Leone as it was in the middle of a civil war at the time.
The jury deliberated for an hour before returning a guilty verdict. He was convicted of, “sexual assault on a child using force, sexual assault on a child, pattern of abuse and three counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.”
Aryee could spend the rest of his miserable life in prison.
How could a Christian defend himself in court using a defense that claims a child is not a child? For that matter, how could a Christian go to court to defend his innocence after fathering a child through the rape of a child? If he is a Christian, and if he is a pastor, his moral obligation is to accept responsibility for his actions. Yet we see the opposite. He raped a child. He produced a child. He ran away from taking responsibility. How can anything that this man ever said be trusted? How is any member of his church sure they are actually Christians and not Aryeeans? How would they know real Christianity if taught by a man who rapes children?
