Who: The 49-year-old pastor of First Baptist Church of Rio Linda, California, who donated $230 to California’s anti-gay Proposition 8 in 2008 — to, you know, uphold the “sanctity” of “traditional” marriage — that is, to strip loving, monogamous, adult gay and lesbian couples (who were not running around molesting children, no matter how many times “men of God” like Daniels try to convince a misinformed and/or gullible public that “gay” = “pedophile”) of their already-recognized constitutional right to join together in legal matrimony — while he was upholding the the “sanctity” of his “traditional” marriage (and presumably protecting children from those awful, horrible gays) by sexually molesting little girls in his home.

Backstory: Conservative Babylon, December 30, 2010; February 5, 2011.
Boy, this is one we’ve been waiting for: the conviction of Sacramento-area gay-bashing senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Rio Linda, Tommy Gene Daniels.
The good news: He was convicted in December of 11 of 12 counts against him for sexually molesting five girls between five and eight years old. All were reportedly molested at Daniels’s home; the APB reports that one “had been going to the residence for day care. The other four were foster children placed there by adoptive parents who found them too difficult to handle.”
Daniels’s wife — who told of the abuse by one of the girls and did nothing — said all the girls were liars.
The bad news: Sentencing — which could land Daniels as much as 165 years — was delayed in January after his lawyer motioned for a new trial.
