JESUS LOVES YOU (TO MURDER EVERYONE)  11:20 am November 20, 2012

Wives! Can’t Live With ‘Em, Can Kill ‘Em, According to Charismatic ‘Ex’-Gay Christian-Orgy Cult Leader

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

That is a dead lady you guys. We are sad now.Tyler Deaton is a handsome young man. He met his wife, Bethany, in prayer group at college. He was so charismatic that by his senior year, he’d convinced a bunch of hot dudes to leave the school-sanctioned Christian fellowship at Southwestern in Texas, and join him in Kansas City instead, so they could be close to the International House of Prayer, which had a kickin’ youth fellowship, mega-awesome Christian jamz, and the kind of “gays-are-demons” stances that appeal to young “ex”-gays. Once in Kansas City, they started meeting for Wednesday night prayer meetings and (ALLEGED) hot gay “spiritual” sex parties and (ALLEGED) Bethany-drugging, -raping, and -beating.

“He believed God could fix things,” a student said.

That included, Deaton told people, fixing himself.

One of his group’s stark positions on Scripture was that homosexuality was wrong. Deaton’s stance against it weighed heavily because members said he had “struggled with being gay.”

“He struggled with it, but he overcame it,” a member of his group at Southwestern said. “It was a victory.”

Her husband having overcome his homosexuality (except for the part where being ex-gay means you can’t bone dudes), in October, Bethany unaccountably killed herself. Or did she? (Hint: She probably did not?)

Three days after her funeral, a 23-year-old man came forward to say he had murdered the 27-year-old Bethany, placing a plastic bag over her head, at her husband, Tyler’s, request.

Witnesses told of a clan of young adults making sex part of their religious experience, of men in the group sexually assaulting Bethany over months, and of Deaton’s role as their “spiritual leader.”

But Moore’s darkest admission, according to court records, was that Deaton feared Bethany was about to reveal the group’s secrets.

Moore confessed that he had murdered Bethany and tried to make it look like suicide, and, according to court documents, he said Deaton told him to do it.

Moore alone has been charged, with first-degree murder. Deaton and others in the group are under investigation, prosecutors said.

[...]

Bethany was sexually assaulted over a period of months while drugged with someone else’s prescription anti-psychotic, witnesses in the house told authorities. This was happening, the witnesses alleged, in a period of time that male members in the house were involved in sexual relationships with Deaton, one saying it was part of a “religious experience.”

The statements unfolded with Moore allegedly saying that people in the group feared Bethany was about to tell her therapist about the assaults, and that he killed her with the plastic bag over her head at Longview Lake.

He did it, his statement to detectives said, because Deaton told him he knew Moore “had it in him to do it.”

That is the kind of supportiveness you should always look for in a cult leader, one who helps you be everything God wants you to be: a drugging, raping, beating, other-guy’s-wife murderer. (“ALLEGEDLY.”) The megachurchy International House of Prayer is all nuh uh, never heard of him, really.

Pithaughn November 20, 2012 at 12:05 pm

Well to be fair, all of your major religions are about who get's to have sex with whom. My pet theory is that controlling and channeling male sexual desire is the root source of their power. That is why the elites throughout history have championed religion for the masses but not for themselves. This arrangement reinforces the concept that some, a very few, among us deserve to have obscene wealth and power, which really makes no sense at all to me.

Biel_ze_Bubba November 20, 2012 at 12:37 pm

There are only two ways to hang on to obscene wealth and power:
(1) maintain a monopoly on organized violence, or
(2) convince the sheeple that God intended it.
The former seems to work for a bit longer than the latter.

International House of Prayer's (NB: Acronym FAIL. Plz to be repeating Communications 101) weak-ass denials and equivocations have about as much credibility as the GOP's current "Sorry 'Bout The Raceful Dog-Whistles, Can We Be Friennz Nao?" position.

Not a word, not a f**king word about "We as a university are examining ourselves to make sure our teachings did not contribute to this tragedy."

I would actually be OK with Jeebus riding a dinosaur if He would fly over and cover these sycophants with ptero-dung votes.

That poor, brainwashed woman. I can't summon up snark just yet. Ex-gay stuff is awful but not an excuse.

bearperney November 20, 2012 at 11:43 am

She was home schooled and taught to be "subject to her husband" regardless of anything. Then the "cult leader" takes her and the boys away from their home turf up to Grandview, MO where IHOP U. resides, puts them all in one house (three blocks from where we live).

The poor woman was a victim of home schooled naive and, likewise, of "your husband is God" indoctrination.

The big problem with the Republican Party is that it's for manipulators and by manipulators — but they can't tell the gullible that, and then the gullible end up running for office. This is why the work of evil geniuses like Lee Atwater and Karl Rove produces the utterly stupid field of candidates like Allen West and Michele Bachmann.

Chichikovovich November 20, 2012 at 12:12 pm

This isn't a creationism issue. You can believe God created the universe and even that he directed evolution through local miracles at key moments, while still believing that the universe is around 13 – 18 billion years old.

Giving up natural selection would overthrow contemporary biology. Believing the earth is only 10,000 years old would give up contemporary everything.

Even most creationists think the young earth creationists are loons.

SorosBot November 20, 2012 at 12:21 pm

Uh, but creationism is young earth creationism; that's what the word means, they believe the Bible is literal truth and the Earth is only about six thousand years old. And yes, creationists are loons; but there is no non-lunatic category of creationist morons, if someone accepts that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old then they are not creationists.

Chichikovovich November 20, 2012 at 12:32 pm

Well, you can use the word "Creationism" as you wish – I won't judge – but both the Creationist community and those who discuss them make a distinction between Young Earth and Old Earth Creationism.

So you're saying Dog found an old run-down planet (Erf, obvs) and gentrified it?

weejee November 20, 2012 at 12:32 pm

Chick, we must clearly have different definitions of creationists. To me, a creationist is one who holds tightly a literal belief in everything that is in the bible and is not someone who believes in God and science. I see the 'new' intelligent design of the Discovery Institute and being the same Scopes Trial creationist nonsense writ new. Though the Catholic Church still has a lot of baggage, they have stopped trying to sustain a pissing contest with science. Some evangelicals perhaps not so much.

I think of myself as a spiritual agnostic who is quite happy to be living in a very physical world. I'd like to think there is more to the observable universe than just physics and matter, but to date science has not found the right microscope to see it. Maybe sometime down the road there will be something kinda like Maxwell's silver hammer and the Michelson and Morley ether wind experiment making Einstein see the light that Newton's fizzics needed a relative tweak that will show a metaphysical fingerprint in creation. But if this, the physical world, is all there is, I'm cool with that.

Chichikovovich November 20, 2012 at 12:39 pm

See above reply to Soros.

Biel_ze_Bubba November 20, 2012 at 12:55 pm

There's an entire two books of Genesis from which to choose "things to interpret" (because metaphorical) and "things to believe" (because God). A single word, "creationist", can't possibly cover the whole range; even the old earth/young earth dichotomy won't do. (Are you a "creationist" if you believe God did the Big Bang, and is just watching things play out?)

oldedinvn November 20, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Both sides are rite.
The god thing is cool But I love a big bang & not in theory which we all not is not fact.

It's disgusting and sad. And even sadder is that these men can't see that they're degrading themselves almost as much.

oldedinvn November 20, 2012 at 1:39 pm

And that is bad why?

BaldarTFlagass November 20, 2012 at 11:46 am

So, these people left fancy private college in Georgetown TX to move to KC for a fucking prayer group? Guess the Logic 101 course was not part of the required curriculum.

Lizzietish81 November 20, 2012 at 11:49 am

Or the cock was that good.

SorosBot November 20, 2012 at 11:46 am

So have the fundamentalists started claiming this murderous creep was somehow "not a real Christian" and disavowing the fucker who was completely one of them and a product of their hate-filled vile ideology?

Tangled sin tax November 20, 2012 at 12:40 pm

Yup. Check out the IHOP statement on the last link in the story.

FlyingSpagMnstr November 20, 2012 at 11:46 am

Tyler Durden? Anyone? The first rule of International House of Prayer is don't talk about International House of Prayer.

HistoriCat November 20, 2012 at 11:46 am

Shit – I'm going to have to go read some boring-ass TPM or Daily Kos stuff to wash out the bitter sadness from this story. That poor woman…

JohnnyQuick November 20, 2012 at 8:16 pm

Yeah, this was like a fucking gut-punch. Normally we don't see the humans that get damaged by the villains of Wonkette pieces, we get to see a funny picture instead.

Because it's a totally adequate reaction to the events described above, I'm going to post this :(

Lizzietish81 November 20, 2012 at 11:47 am

" The megachurchy International House of Prayer is all nuh uh, never heard of him, really. "

Wait, this sounds familiar…

Oh right, its the standard line from Rescue America (formerly known as Operation Rescue before they changed their name to avoid federal prosecution) whenever someone on their list is killed by an activist who received support and help from them.

BaldarTFlagass November 20, 2012 at 11:48 am

With all those ex-gays in attendance, I would imagine that the prayer meetings were quite, what's the word I need here? Ah yes. Fraught.

FNMA November 20, 2012 at 11:56 am

I thought the word would be "fabulous."

Biel_ze_Bubba November 20, 2012 at 12:59 pm

I don't think "fraughttage" is how you spell it.

Guppy November 20, 2012 at 1:08 pm

"Propinquity."

"One of his group’s stark positions on Scripture was that homosexuality was wrong. Deaton’s stance against it weighed heavily because members said he had “struggled with being gay.”"

This sort of thing is way, way too predictable. Self-hating evangelical decides to hate everyone else who has the same orientation he's trying to deny.

Monsieur_Grumpe November 20, 2012 at 11:49 am

Just wait, Pat Robertson will soon be blaming this on us Atheist.

owhatever November 20, 2012 at 11:50 am

Take my wife, please. Again and again, then kill her. Praise the Lord.

actor212 November 20, 2012 at 11:51 am

He did it, his statement to detectives said, because Deaton told him he knew Moore “had it in him to do it.”

P-E-N-I-S goes in the asshole…

Misty Malarky November 20, 2012 at 11:52 am
Guppy November 20, 2012 at 1:09 pm

Clearly this is the fault of CPB and communism.

BaldarTFlagass November 20, 2012 at 12:06 pm

It would have been okay if it was a traditional marriage.

Zomb, if you get tired of your day job, Fox will pay you millions. That is exactly what will probably be said. Damn, you're good!

Oblios_Cap November 20, 2012 at 11:54 am

From the article:

Tyler Deaton had the looks.
His senior portrait in the 2005 yearbook for Corpus Christi’s Calallen High School captured his arresting eyes and easy smile wrapped by his soft cheeks and a strong chin.
And a spunky arrogance.

Spunky, indeed.

emmelemm November 20, 2012 at 1:14 pm

Spunk all over that strong chin, you betcha.

oldedinvn November 20, 2012 at 1:58 pm

Love it when a person writes them own description.

Monsieur_Grumpe November 20, 2012 at 11:55 am

“Knowing what we know now, we deeply regret our failure to discern the nature of Deaton’s alleged secretive, perverse, cultic practices. We further regret his admission to IHOPU four years ago and all connection he had with our organization.”

4 years and no one knew anything? Yeah. Right.

pdiddycornchips November 20, 2012 at 12:12 pm

Well, to be fair, my church doesn't know about our Wednesday night bukkaki pot lucks. Or if they do, they've never mentioned it.

Monsieur_Grumpe November 20, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Oh you Unitarians!

Noah_Hegemon November 20, 2012 at 12:01 pm

Having never attended a Wednesday night churchy meeting, I was unaware this sort of stuff was going on. Someone should report it to the churchy authorities.

Oh, yeah, the churchy authorities deny knowing them?

Eve8Apples November 20, 2012 at 12:04 pm

Wonkette has launched the first rocket in the war on raping, drugging, gaying, murdering Christmas orgies. I bet that cult puts on one hell of a Christmas pageant. If I was the pageant donkey, I'd be very afraid.

oldedinvn November 20, 2012 at 1:59 pm

BoroPrimorac November 20, 2012 at 12:06 pm

It's 2012, gay Evangelicals. Start your own church and send those who don't approve of your gayness to go eat shit.

mustangsavvy November 20, 2012 at 12:10 pm

This is further evidence that Teh Gheys are bad for family values, right?

(Good shit on a stick these people need to be paraded around the nation as grim reminders of how big a fucking failure is the ex-gay movement. Shut it the fuck down, idiots.)

GeneralLerong November 20, 2012 at 12:12 pm

So, Western religion is 2 for 2 when it comes to murdering women this month?

Pretty soon we'll catch up with Pakistan and Afghanistan, eh?

outragedcitizen November 20, 2012 at 12:14 pm

Bathany should have known when she met this guy at a prayer meeting. I mean any guy who goes to prayer meetings in college is most definitely sexually repressed and probably dangerous.

bhosp November 20, 2012 at 12:14 pm

More evil has been done in the name of God then in the name of Satan.

Now I know why I don't go to IHOP. At first I thought the food kind of bland but the real reason is simply. THEEEEIIIIIRRRRRRRR WINGNUTTY!

Smithboy November 20, 2012 at 12:16 pm

Tyler…Jesus I have sinned
Jesus…Well, do you repent?
Tyler…Yes, oh dear Lord I do!
Jesus..Then your sins are forgiven
Tyler..of everything?
Jesus…Yes, everything
Tyler…(Sheepishly) Even mur-der?
Jesus…Sure, why not
Tyler…Gay sex?
Jesus…You're pushing it
Tyler….Thank you Jesus, now I can go on with my life without guilt.
Jesus…anytime.

CommieLibunatic November 20, 2012 at 12:22 pm

Leave it to the fundamentalists to ruin something as wholesome and Christian as gay orgies.

oldedinvn November 20, 2012 at 2:02 pm

Beautiful. Wish I had said that.

ttommyunger November 20, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Seems to me they were all adults of average intelligence or better. Fuck em. Fuck em all. I can't muster any sympathy for any of them.

Biel_ze_Bubba November 20, 2012 at 1:08 pm

I'd not make the "average intelligence" assumption quite so readily. Not that it should alter your conclusion.

ttommyunger November 20, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Some of the staff at Southwestern grew uneasy with Deaton’s group and the pipeline it was laying to Kansas City.

Really, Kansas City Star? Really?

Tangled sin tax November 20, 2012 at 12:51 pm

"Pipeline". Heh.

Biel_ze_Bubba November 20, 2012 at 1:10 pm

Is that the K.Y. Pipeline that Obama is opposed to? I can see why he might want to shut that thing down.

Disassembly November 20, 2012 at 12:39 pm

gingerland62 November 20, 2012 at 12:41 pm

I heard there were menu changes at the IHOP, but this is ridiculous.

docterry6973 November 20, 2012 at 12:43 pm

I wonder how they worked all this out in their heads so that it all seemed like a good idea.

Not really. What I wonder is how many years these people need to be in prison, and whether this poor woman will ever have peace.

Kate_fate November 20, 2012 at 12:45 pm

I don't feel I can take a stand till someone tells me whether that was legitimate rape, or not.

Botlrokit November 20, 2012 at 12:54 pm

I love watching Christians scramble to cover up their shit like kittycats.

YouBetcha November 20, 2012 at 1:06 pm

Oh yeah, because this is much better than being gay and out of the closet.

vulpes82 November 20, 2012 at 1:22 pm

Gee, let me see, a few drag shows and a penchant for cardigans versus religiously motivated self-hatred manifesting as misogyny and murder? How ever will I decide!

LibertyLover November 20, 2012 at 1:15 pm

I think you need a few more zeros and commas on that number…

oldedinvn November 20, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Dang. I think I will leave my religion of atheism & join them.
Getting laid sounds good.

MegPasadena November 20, 2012 at 4:55 pm

It's either raping the poor girl or buttseks with this dude. I guess I will pass.

sundaytrucker November 20, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Wednesday prayer/fuck? I think they're confused on why it's called hump-day. Also, screaming Jesus Christ as your buddy fucks you in the ass, doesn't make it a religious experience….or does it?

rickmaci November 20, 2012 at 1:51 pm

"…he’d convinced a bunch of hot dudes to leave the school-sanctioned Christian fellowship at Southwestern in Texas, and join him in Kansas City instead, so they could be close to the International House of Prayer,…"

Hey, I like going there for breakfast on occasion too, even though the syrups are all fake.

southernboyman November 20, 2012 at 2:07 pm

Goddam, Wonkette. I used to be able to keep up, but the horror-to-snark ratio is too much these days.

FrankFuror November 20, 2012 at 6:41 pm

Guys, unless some hard-core proof comes out about this, I'm going to be skeptical. The whole sex-cult thing sounds too much like the reverse of the old satanic cult scare of the 80's. There's also an undercurrent of gay phobia in the whole thing that makes me reluctant to buy in to it just yet.

azeyote November 20, 2012 at 7:37 pm

International House of Prayer Ghey; there, fixed.

I was going to make an IHOP joke, and then kept reading, and then got a major case of the SADZ. :(

vtxmcrider November 21, 2012 at 12:57 pm

Tyler Deaton should have just gay-married Bradlee Dean. Then the two of them could have had all the guilt-ridden hate sex that they both crave so deeply.

blueflowers November 21, 2012 at 9:37 pm

This is pretty typical of what's going on below ground in the foul Midwest. Kansas City is a particularly disgusting place, though.
