Founder Of Nation’s Largest Christian Music Festival Gets 18 Years For Molesting Little Girls
Pastor Harry Thomas cried when he was sentenced to 18 years in prison for sexually assaulting multiple pre-teen girls.

Thomas, founder of the Creation Festival, billed as the nation’s largest Christian music festival, was sentenced to 18 years in prison Friday after sexually assaulting four minors and having “inappropriate interaction” with another.

The corrupt pastor pleaded guilty in February to raping one pre-teen girl and sexually assaulting three others between 1999 and November 2015. He also pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of a fifth girl.

The 18-year sentence includes no possibility of parole, which means the 75-year-old pastor will most probably die in prison.

After being sentenced the Thomas wept in the courtroom. The crying pastor referenced a Bible verse ( Luke 17:2) and apologised for his heinous actions, saying:

I’m very sorry for the pain I’ve caused. I agree with the scriptures. It would be better for a millstone to be hung around my neck and be cast into the sea. That’s what I deserve.

But survivors and their family showed only contempt for the sexual predator. One survivor, who detailed her emotional pain and suffering as a result of being sexually assaulted by the pastor, said in a statement read on her behalf:

I hate you.

Another angry survivor called the pastor a “scumbag,” declaring:

Harry Thomas, you surely will rot in hell.
And the father of one of the victims said:

This person (Thomas) is a ravenous wolf. He is one of the greatest hypocrites — a child molester masquerading as a pastor.

In one day, our entire lives were turned upside down.

The aunt of one girl opined:

What fools we all were. You used the fact that these kids loved you. You groomed them all and us, too.

The Courier-Post reports County Prosecutor Stephen Life said the pastor targeted victims for repeated assaults between the ages of 5 and 12.

Life said:

Up until the age of puberty, they were repeatedly touched.

The prosecutor said the girls and their relatives are “suffering tremendously,” adding:

The amount of hurt, the amount of confusion, the amount of sadness, the anger, it’s unbelievable.

Bottom line: Pastor Harry Thomas, the founder of the nation’s largest Christian music festival, cried when he was sentenced to 18 years in prison for repeatedly sexually assaulting and molesting pre-teen girls.
