Former UK player Michael Porter was in court today for his sentencing hearing. Porter was sentenced to two years in prison in his sex-abuse case, and was denied probation.

Porter pled guilty to two charges of sexual abuse involving an underage girl back in May. Before he was sentenced, Porter reportedly apologized to the court for his actions.

    #4… Jesus taught to simply love others and believe in Him… there are people who do bad things because of money, fame, lust, religion, retaliation, and so many other reasons. Believing in Jesus isn’t about “doing the right thing,” it’s about relationship. There are plenty of good, moral people who don’t believe in Jesus. And it’s so much fun and peaceful being in relationship with Jesus, I can’t even describe it. I actually heard Porter talk @ a church function one time and he was great. The great part about Jesus is that if Porter wants it, He can be forgiven and live eternity in Paradise like any Jesus follower. We all sin, and all sin is equal to God matter simple or grave by our worldly standards. Just think of the way that Jesus died for us? How horrific is that? But the good news is that we can be forgiven no matter how bad this world says we are if we believe and have relationship in love with Him. I’m mean seriously, how meaningless is life without this relationship? God is love.

    I’m saddened by this, but just to be clear, being a Christian doesn’t mean you claim perfection. In fact claiming Christianity is to claim imperfection and the need to be reconciled to a perfect God. I’m not making any eternal judgment on Michael and you shouldn’t either.

    He was a youth group leader. He sexually abused two girls. I am DEFINITELY judging him. It is my right to do so. Religion poisons everything.

    15) I don’t “sin.” I don’t even acknowledge “sin.” Who looks at a precious newborn baby and says, “you know what? this little thing is EVIL! he’s gotta be SAVED!” We all have the choice to right or wrong when we wake up. It is possible to be moral without believing in any gods. Not just your form aka jesus. Life is so much more beautiful when you start thinking for yourself and stop basing daily decisions on some imaginary watchdog. Try it.

    #22, from what I heard, it was a BJ and the girl was around 16. And it was all consensual from what I’ve been told. I guess when you break the law, you pay the price, but two years seems extremely harsh. Once upon a time in America, sex with a 16 year-old was not seen as an aberration, and it still isn’t in most of the world. Poor Mike.

    Youth minister positions, like Boy Scout and Catholic Church positions previously, are attractive to sexual predators because of the easy access to victims. That’s why these positions need to be very tightly screened.

You are certainly entitled to your OPINION, but lets not blast religion universally and try to push your non-belief on others. Come to church with me and I will introduce you to 1000s of people that “religion” as you put it has far from poisoned. On the contrary, it has saved them. Just keep your comments to yourself.

    I hear ya #20. I did the thinking about myself lifestyle for a looong time. Just began being a Jesus follower a couple years ago. As someone who has lived life to the fullest with and without Jesus, I would choose Jesus every time. Without him, I was anxious, stressed constantly, i would spend a bunch of money on “fun” to fulfill me and it only would leave me empty, would treat women poorly, and so man other poor things. No matter how successful I would be at my job, I always felt like I had something more to prove (still suffer from this today). My identity was in so many things that could easily be taken away with one misstep or one phone call. With Jesus, I am way less anxious, am much more fulfilled, rarely if ever stress, and have my identity in God which can never be taken away. It’s not easy being selfless and I fail constantly, but fixing my eyes on Him has made my life, and so many others I’ve seen more fulfilling.

    I feel like this has nothing to do with religion. This has to do with a man and his bad choice. What he did was illegal, and punishable per law. Therefore, he is now going to prison. His wife is stupid to stay with him. THey were chuch leaders, not pastors. He never went to seminary school. He did something bad. he is getting punished. The end. The church he and his wife attended / his religion/ blah blah doesnt matter. His choice does.



  35. Nonsense

    20 you sound like a person who knows nothing about religion. no wonder your posts about it are so ignorant. Religion in general doesn’t look at a baby and say it’s evil, it needs to be saved. Maybe a specific religion that you’ve heard of does, but to apply that across the board to all religions is silly. You are right about having a choice of right and wrong when we wake up, and that has nothing to do with religion so your first comment about religion making good ppl do bad things conflicts with your new statement about free will to choose. Life is beautiful believing in a loving and forgiving God, I don’t need to ditch the “watch dog” to live happily. I was never happier before accepting Christ than I am now. Your feelings don’t apply to everyone!

    20.) But what is morality without religion? Simply a set of behaviors that have evolved to benefit the survival of mankind?

    If one recognizes that this is all that morality is, what prevents him or her from going against moral behavior in a situation where they know there will be no societal repercussions?

    I don’t claim to have all of the answers. But recognize there are reasons that religion exists, and a lot of people are better off believing in a higher purpose.

    #37) the reason it was only 2 years, was because the minor child admitted the act was consensual, and stopped at oral sex. I see your point tho. Whats sad is he has 3 daughters (one was just born last month). If i was his wife i wouldn’t want him near my babies.

    A man walks into a store. There is a bird watching him walk into the store. The bird is in a cage. The man feels sorry for the bird for being in a cage. The man walks out of the store and into the world. He all the sudden feels caged in. He misses the bird. He goes back to see the bird constantly. He wants to free the bird. Finally, one day he unlocks the cage and lets the bird free. He never sees the bird again. Did he free the bird, or just his thought of freeing the bird if he never saw it again? He realizes the bird was never trapped. The man only thought the bird was trapped. When he set it free the world didn’t seem better. He just stole someone’s bird, and was arrested for burglury. I just don’t see how this is considered abuse. Our right to freedom of expression is limited by the churches. Freedom is a choice. Free your minds of judgment.

    You know what is ironic about your statement? How do you know what is right versus what is wrong? You’re statement implies there is a standard for right and standard for wrong?

I do care that men like Michael Porter are given access to children through the church. If churches can’t do more to keep child molesters and sexual predators away from our children, then the government should step in and shut them down.

    This thread is so interesting and speaks so clearly of how damaging sin is. What MP did is deplorable. He used a place of authority and trust to hurt someone. It is the same in our culture as teachers, doctors, judges, police, husbands, parents… the list goes on of people who have a sacred trust that when violated hurts very deeply. That is why this is so wrong, that it was done under the provision of ministry makes it much worse. That is why the Bible says not many should be teachers and then there are those words Jesus said about a millstone. This is very seriously wrong. I also know thousands of people whose lives have been changed by the power of Jesus, from violence to peace, from addiction to life. I have been in many of the disaster areas around the world, and what you find there are government workers getting paid and Christians. I was on one of, if not the first, commercial flight(S) into Haiti after the earthquake and it was all Christians. I helped a baby there who was HIV positive (he is not now- google it Mackenson-Jacmel Haiti) get to the hospital and live and built houses in the heat, that we payed for, along with dozens of other people. Hospitals all over Africa, children fed and peace where there was war. For those who have been hurt by religion I am sorry, but do not throw us all under the bus. And of all the people in the world to follow- I think Jesus is a pretty good choice.

    So much angst, I guess this thread does not bring out our best sides. I believe we have purpose, that there are things that are right and wrong, that matter and energy have an origin, that in the end there is not an end, that what we do matters and it all does not go back to zero. I’m very sorry if your opinions are reinforced by inconsistent christians, that is not the only cause btw, again that’s just not the people I know personally. I am going to end my thread here- back to happier things like another season of hoops and even dare I say football.

    never liked MP as a player but really? Sex abuse against a minor while your @ Church camp. WOW!! You might as well rob a police station while you were at it. No excuses and no mercy on this one.

    The incidents happened from November 2009 to April 2010, when the girl was 14 and 15 years old. Barely in high school. Porter was 22 and 23. That’s just sick. What is it with you guys? What is wrong with your wiring that you would even want to have sex with a partially formed woman? Talk about sexual inadequacy.

    After jail, wherever he lives, Porter will have to register as a sex offender. He doesn’t need jail. He needs a psychiatrist.

    Have any of y’all ever read Romeo and Juliet? Historically the age difference is not a big deal. It is illegal but it is not pederasty. Additionally, where do u non-religious get off judging him.? There is nothing amoral to what he did, speking from a secular perspective. From a christian mindset, there ar grounds to judge his actions.

    I feel so sorry for some of you, you don’t know that its so easy for others to see what a miserable life you are living, [ I’ve been there ] and its not working trying to get others to join you, I do pray that you will come to the truth before its to late for you, and Porter is getting what he deserves.

    “I’m always very suspicious of so called “youth ministers”, etc. Seems like most all of them get into some sort of shit they aren’t supposed to. Seem like a slimy lot if you ask me. ”

    Seems like “most all of them”?

    Yeah, every church has this going on with its youth volunteers.

    Why do people say ridiculous things like this?

    It’s interesting the standard people here apply to Christians – apparently none of the rest of us should be Christians, because in this case, someone professing to be a Christian has really messed up and done a bad thing – and that this is reflective of what a Christian lifestyle is about (nevermind the fact there is no teaching in Christianity which codones this kind of conduct…and the morality which formed our laws is the very reason why he is being punished for his conduct). By this same standard, how can any of us continue to be UK fans – obviously since Porter was a UK basketball player this means that’s what UK basketball is all about – we surely can’t continue to associate with and support a program that would encourage this kind of conduct. That’s a ridiculous notion, but the one so many above are applying to being a Christian because this one Christian failed to live up to his own standards…as though that makes the standards wrong. Michael Porter screwed up. It’s a very sad situation for all involved, and this is a fair sentence – as sad as it is that something happened to require it. A reminder to us all that giving into a moment of temptation can have lifelong consequences…and it isn’t a joking matter.

    “I love you. if you don’t love me back you’ll burn in a fiery pit for all of eternity” this all makes perfect sense to me”

    Nope – that is not how it was done – He came down to us and put himself through unbelievable pain and torcher on our behalf to take that punishment upon Himself give us a way out of that. He did, however, give us a choice to accept this free gift of Grace…or not.

    He didn’t commit a sex crime against a minor. He got two blow jobs from a star struck 15 year old girl (one while she was 14). Yes, he should have said “society thinks blow jobs between us are evil, and I regret that I cannot accept one from you,” but let’s stop calling him a pervert, a sexual predator, and all of that crap. It’s a freaking blow job, of the type that epps2shep excused when it was Bill Clinton with a girl who was MANY more years junior to Clinton than this slutty teen was to Michael.
    Epps2Shep, you would not be so bitter and troubled by so many personal demons if you came to a saving knowledge of the Christ who can and will forgive you for all of your life of sin and evil. Release the selfishness and the hate, and embrace Christ. It will free you from the tormented existence you obviously lead.

    I’m a Christian, I believe in and follow Jesus. I don’t like the term “religion”, or whatever you want to call it. I just have certain beliefs. My feelings on this are that Jesus and what he wants for us are perfect, but Christians, “religion”, followers and non believers are what’s not perfect and that’s when mistakes like these are made. Because us as humans aren’t perfect and won’t always act that way. It’s us, not “religion” or however you want to put it that’s at fault.

    115: How is God’s own son actually him? That’s F****ed up. Just some weird weird shit that you people believe. What’s even weirder is that it makes perfect sense to most of you—talking snakes, forbidden fruits etc. This shit makes otherwise intelligent people completely lose all ability to use reason and logic. Is it fear that if you don’t believe something bad will happen? Only explanation I can see. Otherwise, how can sane people believe in magic and fairy tales. . . which is exactly what it all is.
