Accused Rapist Meets Women On Christian Dating Site
Look, I’m not the world’s most observant Christian. But even I attended enough Sunday school to know that God would totally have said “Thou shalt not rape” had there been room on those tablets for an 11th commandment.
Which is why I feel confident saying that Sean Patrick Banks, 37, of Del Mar, California, who is accused of raping a woman he met on the Christian dating site Christian Mingle, is crappy Christian.
Banks — who looks exactly like Mindy Kaling’s douchebag boyfriend on the first season of “The Mindy Project,” right? — met his alleged victim on Christian Mingle, where he gave her a fake name (other than his profile name). The former Navy sailor came to her house at her invitation. While in her home, police say Banks “became forceful” and raped her. After ChristianMingle.com turned over web records with information about Banks, he was arrested and charged with two counts of sexual assault and one account of burglary.
Now police are asking other women who may have been raped by Banks — who used several different profiles on the site and traveled around America — to come forward. If you’re a southern California online dater, you may also want to take a look at Banks’ pic, too, because he’s posted his $500,000 bail.
