Stephen Collins molested underage girls because he’s a “flawed person”

Welp, if you can’t get legit acting jobs anymore because you’re a child molester so no one wants to hire you, the next best thing is to try and pocket some cash – and some sympathy! – by parading around in front of the press talking about what a changed man you are and how you only made little girls touch your junk because you’re a “flawed person” and Jesus forgives you for it.

Go on then, Stephen Collins

In the church, it’s actually one of the things I love about the church … Christ says in so many ways, “Bring me that which about you is broken. Bring it.” And, most people are broken in some way…

Most people either get to or have to or choose to hide it. This came out. I didn’t choose this to come out. I didn’t want to have to deal with these things publicly. I had dealt with them very, very strongly and committedly in my private life. I think I’m a human being with flaws and I’ve done everything I can to address them.

Collins also claims he had no trouble at all playing a pastor on 7th Heaven because his child molesting was like a totally different person. WTF?

Look, I’d never say that a person can’t change or that someone’s personal faith can’t help to redeem them, but as someone pointed out in the Gawker comments that covered this, “Jesus is the ultimate tap-out”. There are SO many Christians (and yes, other religions, but I’m talking about Christians here) who think that they don’t need to face any actual, real-life consequences for stuff because they’ve asked Jesus to forgive them and so they’re square now. That’s not how life works, bro. Your ass still deserves to be in jail, you should still be forced to face the realities of what you did – your Bible-thumping does not absolve you.

  • i think that a lot of people who use God as a ‘tap out’ forget that his forgiveness doesn’t come until you reach the gates of heaven and you are judged for your life, that’s when you can be resolved of sins, not while your still on earth. You spend your life making up for it you don’t just get instant forgiveness for saying sorry. If you believe in that sort of thing.

  • I think he’s just trying to say the right thing to get what he wants. You have to be psychopathic to molest a child. You disregard their pain, horror etc and can only think of the pleasure you get from that activity. His comment that “he has never, ever thought of doing that to anyone else.” is highly suspect imo. That is the crux of the problem with child molesters. They are never cured or rehabilitated. They may not act on the impulse for a while …… or get caught ….. but …… if you let them babysit your kids – you are completely nutso.

    • IMO, they need to be put away in prison for the rest of their lives, until they are either in a wheelchair or need constant monitoring to stay alive, whichever condition will not allow them to EVER molest a kid again.
