    Using the Bible to Legitimate Sex with Minors

    Using the Bible to Legitimate Sex with Minors

    A 37-year-old teacher accused of creating a “secret society” to lure teenage girls into having sex with him was arrested recently in San Antonio.

    According to the Houston Chronicle, Robert Louis Rosseau taught Bible classes — among other subjects — to eighth-graders at Christian Academy of San Antonio.

    Rosseau, who isn't certified by the state to teach, remained in Bexar County Jail on Tuesday on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child. He was being held on $100,000 bail.

    Jim Bazar, secondary principal at the Christian Academy of San Antonio, said Rosseau “was terminated effective (Tuesday).”

    “He has not been on our campus for several weeks,” Bazar said, adding the instructor was placed on administrative leave when the allegations were made early this month.

    The principal said none of the alleged sexual acts occurred on campus and that only one of the three girls involved attends the school.

    Authorities said Rosseau's secret society, which included him and two of the girls, began to unravel last month, when the third teen balked at joining the group.

    That teen told authorities that the two girls who were members of the society, which they referred to as an “order,” attempted to recruit her into the group on two weekends in September. To become a member, the two girls told the teen, she had to be “intimate” with Rosseau to establish trust, according to an arrest affidavit.

    The teen's resistance led to a fight Oct. 5 with the two girls, who allegedly attacked her after she tried to reveal the relationship to classmates at a local high school, which was not named in the affidavit.

    Police were called to the school, and that's when the girl told authorities that Rosseau was trying to enlist her into the order and accused the teacher of having sex with the other two girls, the affidavit states.

    The teen said the other girls told her that Rosseau had seen both of them nude, adding “this was a part of the trust that was needed for the ‘order' to operate,” the affidavit states. She also told authorities that the girls told her that Rosseau was in a lot “of pain” because she wouldn't join the group.

    //I can't think of a penalty strong enough for this type of action. Nothing surprises me anymore; but with a 13 year old daughter, this one sickens me to the core.

      I’ve learned both through study and through experience (not my own, thankfully) just how badly hurt children are when they are used and abused in this way, and how damaging it is to everyone. (as many as 1 in 4 children in US are sexually abused at some point…)

      This man has likely been very badly hurt in the past and is passing it on. Punishment? Yeah. But also treatment.
