I have friends who have deluded themselves into assuming dogmatically that any teenager who has sex with an adult and even has a baby with him or her is automatically a victim of sexual abuse. I have never believed this (I think if force was not used, it should not be called rape and age is irrelevant). Now I find a story that seems to prove how right my position is.
Man Who Fathered Former High School Teacher’s Son Allegedly Kills Them Both: Source
A former high school teacher’s former student has been accused of killing both her and their young son — born from an affair that made headlines in 2013 — a New York City police source tells PEOPLE.
An NYPD spokesperson declined to comment on the case, but the department source says Isaac Duran was charged Tuesday with two counts of murder in the deaths of former Dewitt Clinton High School teacher Felicia Barahona and her 4-year-old son, Miguel.
The 36-year-old mother and Afghanistan War veteran was found dead Monday morning in the living room of her Manhattan apartment, according to the police source, who confirms that she was strangled with an electrical cord and Miguel was drowned in the bathtub. The boy was found face-down, floating in the filled tub, the source says.
Their bodies were first discovered by the apartment building’s superintendent, who checked on Barahona after noticing a foul odor that seemed to be coming from her unit.
Duran was taken into custody later Monday, according to the source.
Under “intense questioning,” PEOPLE’s source alleges that Duran “owned up” to the killings — at one point “referencing Satan.”
Duran’s custody status was not immediately available Tuesday afternoon. It was unclear from court records if he had been before a judge yet, entered a plea to his charges or whether a bail amount had been set for him.
It was unknown Tuesday if Duran had retained an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
According to the NYPD source, Duran initially denied having any involvement in the deaths and told detectives he hadn’t been to Barahona’s apartment building since 2012, when their son was born. However, police discovered that Duran was spotted on surveillance video entering and leaving the building over several days.
Barahona’s relationship with Duran first became public in March 2013, after an internal investigative report was obtained by multiple local news outlets.
According to those reports, Barahona began having sex with Duran after he turned 18, though they later split in early 2012 before Miguel was born. Barahona was fired from Dewitt Clinton High in August 2012.
Her family could not immediately be reached.
Still want to claim that young man was merely an innocent victim of abuse? No, he was the real abuser here. The teacher was wrong, but she and her child did not deserve the death penalty!
I sometimes wonder if in the past it was actually common for adult teachers and their underaged students to engage in sexual relations, since we in recent times so often hear of such things in the news. Now it appears that one way a younger boy or girl can get rich is to have sex with a teacher, claim to be a victim of abuse and file a lawsuit to get millions of dollars from the experience. How convenient!
A website titled Let Them Marry promotes Christian standards for marriage.
“And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him”
There are thousands of godly young men and women who are ready to be married but are not – this is not good.
It is time for godly men to seek out the biblical path for marriage, to search out the cause of delayed or denied marriages, and to put away unbiblical ideas surrounding the marriage process.
Note: Contrary to vicious internet rumors we do not support or in any way condone child sexual activity of any sort, child marriage, or any other illegal activity. Nor do we support or condone forced marriages. We believe that parents should NOT seek a spouse for a child where that child has not actively sought for the parents to do so.
Recently, the Jehovah’s Witnesses, one of the many Christian based cults founded in the 19th Century, produced an attractive and professional looking video with a clear message: Jehovah will not allow gays and lesbians into Paradise.
Watch that video here:
Afterwards, consider the following questions.
How do we know that Jehovah invented marriage for us? Why him and not some other god?
What if Jehovah told us to reject interracial marriage too? The Mormons have a book that condemns people with black skin!
What if Jehovah ordered us to kill anyone above the age of 65?
How do we know there is a Paradise for us to go to?
How do we know that gays and lesbians will be excluded from Paradise?
Indeed, how do we even know Jehovah exists at all?
We KNOW that gays and lesbians exist and that some of them are PARENTS.
Using one or more things that may not be real to attack things or people that are certainly real is irrational.
And making something cute to teach BIGOTRY is the worst kind of brainwashing!
It does not matter if you say, “God hates fags!” or if you say, “Jehovah does not approve of your gay lifestyle and he will love you more if you change.” Sugarcoated bigotry is still bigotry, period!
(A father is washing dishes in the kitchen. His ten-year old son enters.)
Son: Father, why do atheists hate God?
Father: Who told you that nonsense?
Son: Uncle Bob was talking about religion with Mother in the living room.
Father: (Lowers his voice) Son, your uncle is an idiot. Atheists do not hate God because you cannot hate something if you do not believe it exists.
Son: So what are we supposed to believe about God?
Father: I can only tell you what I believe and I expect you to make up your own mind later. I believe in the God of Christianity, which is also said to be the God of Judaism and Islam.
Son: Then I choose to believe as you do.
Father: So be it. But as you grow older and learn more, you may reconsider that view. If you do, no matter what you end up with, I assure you that I will always love you.
Son: Thanks, Father.
A long time ago, I wrote this:
Statutory Rape, a Legal Absurdity.
Having been a horny teenage boy, it seems clear to me that if I was seduced by an older woman, even if she was one of my teachers, I would not have considered myself a victim at all, but would have felt proud that she chose ME to be her sex partner! But at the same time, I would have known it to be a violation of the most basic standards of proper behavior in schools. As a willing participant in the sex acts, I would be just as guilty as the teacher and would also expect to be punished in some way. And yet, society still has this idea that someone below the age of “consent” (which varies in different countries and even different states in the USA) must automatically be called a “victim of child rape”. If that is not an obvious form of AGE DISCRIMINATION, what is?! Continue reading
