Six months ago, when we wrote David McConaghie: Conviction Upheld on Appeal, we thought we had seen the last of that creationist preacher, political activist, and convicted pervert. We had been posting about his depravity for three years — since we first wrote Creationist Suspected of Bathroom Voyeurism, where we described his preaching and political activities.
But as with everything else about creationism, old issues never seem to go away. As you know, creationists are not only obsessed with sex — in all its varieties — but they also care deeply about what goes on in bathrooms. Ever since McConaghie’s trial, the subject of bathrooms has become of increasing importance — at least to creationists.
It was only last month that we wrote Ken Ham: Bathrooms and the Bible. Ol’ Hambo has never, to our knowledge, discussed the bathrooms on Noah’s Ark, but there were undoubtedly separate facilities, clearly marked, for men and women aboard that spacious, sea-worthy vessel.
It’s unfortunate that McConaghie didn’t have the benefit of current headlines about bathrooms to guide him, because he might have presented a credible defense, claiming that he was supervising bathrooms to assure that only the appropriate gender was using the facilities in which he concealed his camera, and that he did this — not for personal titillation — but to save Darwinists from the Lake of Fire.
Anyway, as one of our readers mentioned in a comment to an earlier thread, McConaghie is back in the news. In the Belfast Newsletter, a major newspaper in Northern Ireland, we read Voyeuristic ex-DUP adviser’s defence cost public purse £5,673. They don’t have a comments feature. Here are some excerpts from the news, with bold font added by us:
The trial of a former DUP [Democratic Unionist Party] adviser who was convicted of voyeurism after he placed a hidden camera in a constituency office toilet cost the public purse £5,673 in legal aid payments.
That’s $8,302.36 in US dollars. It’s surprising that such a politically prominent creationist preacher would need public aid, but we don’t know his financial situation or the conditions for such aid in Northern Ireland. Then we’re told:
After a failed appeal by the one-time prominent member of the Independent Orange Order and the Caleb Foundation, McConaghie began a three-month jail sentence in December. At the time, the judge told McConaghie: “The court expresses its revulsion toward your behaviour. You have shown no remorse.”
That’s old news. Then we’re told how those fees were allocated for both the trial and the appeal, but we can skip such unnecessary detail. The only other matter of interest is this:
The Courts Service said that the payments were “standard fees”.
We’ve been wrong before, but now we really think this is our last post about McConaghie. However, we’re confident that creationists will be providing us with additional entertainment regarding their intense interest in our private biological functions.
