Posted on 07/22/2014 3:37:24 PM PDT by Morgana
An Edmond teenager faces a possible life in prison sentence after authorities say they learned about shocking crimes he allegedly committed on an African mission trip.
The suspect was volunteering at a Kenyan childrens home when he allegedly raped and molested a number of young children.
According to court records, 19-year-old Matthew Durham confessed to raping several young girls, forcing some boys to perform oral sex on him and even making other kids watch.
This is a young man in our community that made choices to exploit children in an orphanage, said United States Attorney Sanford Coats. Its a true tragedy all the way around.
The 19-year-old suspect traveled overseas with a group called Upendo.

Strike one: Not Islamic.
Strike two: Not working for the UN.
Strike three: Not black.
Yep, life sentence it is... Until he converts.
Well. If, after a fair trial, he’s found guilty, then he should be locked up for the rest of his life. Anyone who rapes young boys and girls does not need to be part of society.
it’s going to be uphisendo alright.
How about this...
Strike one. Not in America and did a crime
Strike two. Total idiot sex offender
Strike three. Against children no less.
The only other crime worse in Kenya is poaching and for they they put you in a box in the middle of the hot sun and let you die.
What ever they do to this perv if he’s found guilty is just fine by me.
If he is convicted of rape he spends the rest of his life in prison...regardless of race, creed, color or faith.
There is NO faith which sanctions rape of ANYONE of ANY age for ANY reason.
“There is NO faith which sanctions rape of ANYONE of ANY age for ANY reason. “
It’s called Islam, but is that really a religion?
It sounds like he’s quite a messed-up young man. Maybe mission organizations should do psychological screening for participants in situations that aren’t closely monitored.
Oh come on, how can anyone forget about Anal Jihad?
I’d never heard of the organization, so I looked it up. It appears to have been founded by a group of Kenyans and some Dutch people as an orphanage for the children of AIDS victims, and many of the children are also HIV positive.
I wonder how this guy got involved with it? Very sad, though, to abuse the trust of these children that way. Hang him high.
I never heard that term before. Where DID you get that?!
Nature made us for the two-way street of a birth canal. Anal traffic is definitely ONE WAY.
I’m a little surprised that there isn’t better screening for signs of potential child molesters or better monitoring of new recruits during their initial missions.
Hopefully he won’t escape to Mexico and change his name to Juan Garcia. He’ll be back walking the streets in Oklahoma in two seconds.
Another top career choice for Pedophiles I guess. Add it to the list.
This is Africa where raping children is so common, our government spends tens of millions giving those kids birth control.
I think there’s currently a bit of a gap between the categories of victims and abusers. “Children” are potential victims, while “adults” are potential abusers. But what’s a 19-year-old boy/man?
If an adult homosexual or a woman high school teacher targets him, he can still be considered a “victim.” On the other hand, if he’s forcing himself on younger boys or girls, he’s an abuser.
I think the organizations just haven’t worked through the potential outcome and planned for them. Maybe evil is always a step ahead.
uhh... .11% of Kenya is Muslim. It’s hardly a Muslim country. I highly doubt converting would help him.
Well, since AIDS started in central Africa it's not surprising.
That NONE of the men or women have had any/some education about AIDS is also not surprising. AIDS won't go away soon.
I wonder how this guy got involved with it? Very sad, though, to abuse the trust of these children that way. Hang him high.
Pedophiles find their way to children. As I said before, this guy was PROBABLY abused when HE was a boy. The cycle of pedophilia never seems to stop.
You've not been following news of Islam lately esp. in Iraq against Christians or in Kenya with Boko Haram, and ...?
I don't believe that rape is any more common in Africa that it is anywhere else.
That our government is spending tens of millions of dollars giving "those kids" birth control MUST tell you that the girls are menstrual, that is, "young women."
BIRTH CONTROL for "children"?? HOGWASH. Our government is
spending THROWING AWAY millions of dollars in faux sympathy. That is fruitless and STUPID.
It's stupidity and false sympathy from our Pimp President.
As young as 10 are getting this “help” from the USAID
“I don’t believe that rape is any more common in Africa that it is anywhere else. “
Tribalism and shamanism in Africa is rampant, many think they gain the attributes of an animal by eating it. They think they can cure AIDS by molesting young virgins.
This is how primitive the place is.
If you think all cultures are equal, they are not.
Here is the thread.
10 years need “birth control”?
BTW- someone should ask USAID how they think a pill can stop HIV/AIDS
Everybody knows that only people who work for the United Nations are allowed to rape children!
Better that he be locked in a Kenyan prison for the rest of his life, than in an American prison for ten years.
Tie him to a tree, and let the ants do the rest.
Men and women were always separate because they lived in tents on the desert. There were no "rooms," no screens on the windows, no AC, only TWO sections of the tent, one for the women and one for the men. I learned that from our Saudi boss when we were working for ARAMCO back in the 80's.
I didn't have the courage to ask about the "wedding night" of a couple but I'm sure that "arrangements" were made. Now, I don't care. :o)
Where you DO see men/boys in a sexual relationship is in the Himalayan highlands, Pakistan, north India, Afghanistan, etc., and other rigidly male/female segregated places where men cannot go NEAR women unless they are married to them.
Young AND grown men used boys for sex because women were never, ever available to them. Horny men used what was available. Young slave boys, I guess, were cheap and easy.
Their style of living was already IN PLACE before Islam came into their lives. It was the way they had ALWAYS lived. I suppose that it's still that way. ISLAM didn't change that. No faith would change that as it seems to be ingrained in their culture from the very beginning of their culture.
You forgot Islam.
There are Islamic fatwas that call for the rape of Christian girls so that they must convert and bear Muslim offspring.
Ten year old girls are getting birth control pills? That's absurd AND useless.
The term "GIRL" says it all. YOUNG women, that is, menstruating, different story.
Another LGBT freak. targeted boys as well.
That being the case, what is a society to do? Should they try to enforce a ban on sex with good-sized 10-year-old girls, or should they try to get every girl past 6 or so on contraceptive pills?
The possibility of promoting Christian chastity for everyone, regardless of sex or age, apparently is rarely considered.
I’m going on what I read - where young girls are raped and then forced to marry their rapist, or, they are stoned for having sex outside of marriage ...all in Islamic countries.

We are talking about RAPE CULTURE. The USAID is doing this instead of trying to stop rape.
At least a quarter of girls in some parts of Africa are raped before they become adults.
This is not even about them “having sex”. This is about rape culture. 25% of men in South Africa admitted to being rapists according to some press reports.
Does CNN also cover the news when UN “peacekeepers” and diplomats are caught raping kids?
Why here of course! LOL. It was a fatwa declared for, I think, ISIS jihadis who find themselves without an available woman (goat, camel, etc.) to satisfy their urges in between battles, granting them permission to use their male captives as receptacles. And yes, it IS disgusting!
I will try to look up a link for you once supper is done here...not that I'm terribly hungry any more...
Did I say that I did?
But, what do I know? We just LIVED and WORKED in Saudi Arabia for five years. We BOTH worked with Saudis in the Eastern Province, not 100 yards from the Arabia Gulf.
BETCHA you DIDN'T know that the folks over there call it the ARABIAN GULF, not the PERSIAN GULF.
As for tribalism, I KNOW all about their tribal ties, MAYBE even more than you do. Where we lived had a rather large contingent of SHI'ITE Muslims, EVEN THOUGH it was Saudi Arabia...SUNNI Muslim. You probably didn't know that either.
Buuuuut, we were over there LIVING and WORKING with the Saudis for five years...what on earth do I know? YOU obviously know FAR more about them, never having lived or worked there, never having been acquainted with them, seeing how they lived, shopped, worked. You never saw them interact with their families, children, relatives, etc., but you know all about their culture.
I certainly did meet a few jerks...but then jerks are all over the world. NO country has a corner on jerks, fools, aholes, fools or morons. We all have our share.
MOSTLY I met nice people BECAUSE the Saudis were VERY WELL acquainted with Americans...having them live in their kingdom since the 1930's.
One old Saudi spoke some Italian, from the days when there were some Italians there. I was talking about water and he popped up with "acqua minerale." Lol, that floored me.
God made the Bedu the poorest people on earth, living in that spider-infested desert, scraping a living from herding the black, triangle-tailed goats, but ... after petroleum discoveries, 200 MORE years worth, the Bedu are now God's wealthiest people.
NOW they have universal, unlimited health/dental care, universal education up to and including medical school, cars, cars and more cars, and HUGE Mercedes trucks that patrol the camps with full blown, undiluted DDT that spray and spray and spray and spray and spray and spray and spray and spray and spray. Doesn't kill ALL the camel spiders, mosquitoes or bugs but it helps.
The Saudis DID finally kill their SICK mosquitoes, the ones that gave malaria. HOWEVER, sick Kenyans, with malaria still in their system, came to work in the KSA and reinfected the "healthy" Saudi mosquitoes.
Now they have to spray some more and be more careful with their immigrant workers from east Africa.
It's a pit hole to work in, but they pay SO much money, that it doesn't take long to make a BUNDLE.
ALSO, those Americans who work for Saudi ARAMCO pay NO FEDERAL INCOME TAX on their income from Saudi ARAMCO.
We were out of our state for more than a year so we weren't residences there any more and therefore paid no STATE INCOME TAX. Five years there was enough to set us up for good.
Marriage of young girls (or call it “child rape”) is a commonplace in Africa whether the religion is Moslem, Christian, or pagan. Ideally, Christian missions, whether native or Western, would be 100% against this. However, it doesn’t always work out this way.
Some Western Christian missionaries, such as Daniel Everett in South America, get to their destinations and fall apart, “Wooga wooga, free sex!!!” Some in Africa as well. And some would be dangerous perverts in the US, like the young man in this article.
There are no marriages, there is no consent in these third world hell holes.
they cover up child abuse
Is it "rape" if it's simply understood that girls provide sexual services to boys/men? That's an open question in the US today.
Except Islam. Women taken in battle and turned into slaves can be raped. Check out Mohammed and Safiya.
Yes it is still “rape”
Discretion IS the better part of valor: time to get outta Dodge.
We are a country because our ancestors escaped religious intolerance. It's not new. Who's next?
The Left would LOVE us to forget God. We get our OWN pressure, don't we?
I agree with you. Forced sex is rape, regardless of the cultural conventions that demand submission.
If compulsory sex were the same as being forced to do laundry, then criminal law wouldn’t see any difference between pointing a gun at someone and someone and forcing her to wash dishes ... and pointing a gun and someone and forcing her to have sex.
