Mercedes’ Ride Ends

Mercedes Carrera, a porn actress known for her involvement in #GamerGate, has been arrested on child sex abuse charges.

A man and woman who both work in the adult film industry were arrested after being accused of sexually abusing a young girl in Rancho Cucamonga over the course of months, authorities said Wednesday.

Deputies began investigating last Thursday when they learned of alleged sexual acts against a child under the age of 10, according to a Rancho Cucamonga Police Department news release.

Detectives interviewed the young girl, who reported being sexually abused multiple times by a man and a woman over a four-month period.

“The sexual abuse consisted of inappropriate touching, oral copulation, and digital penetration, which occurred over four months,” deputies said.

The pair were identified as Jason Whitney, 43, and Melinda Smith, 35, both of Rancho Cucamonga.

During the investigation, detectives determined that Smith was an adult film actress who went by the name Mercedes Carrera, according to the release.

Porn is not normal. Porn is not healthy. Like any serious sin, porn eventually destroys those involved with it. And it’s rarely practiced in isolation by those who are ensnared in it.

When detectives served a search warrant at their home in the 10800 block of Church Street last Friday they uncovered “a large amount of evidence corroborating the victim’s statement,” according to the release. Methamphetamine and two loaded handguns were also found in the home, authorities said.

Everyone has his own temptations. Everyone has personal struggles and crosses to bear, and there is no sin that is beyond God’s healing and mercy. But His healing and forgiveness are predicated on repentance and firm resolution of mending one’s ways. Those who willingly and openly engage in–or worse, promote–porn production and consumption are not and cannot be our allies. However noble their original intentions, Satan already has his hooks in them.

This is a sad and difficult moment–most of all for the young victim of this atrocious crime. I do not bring the following up as an “I told you so.” First of all, I didn’t make much mention of it at the time, though in retrospect perhaps I should have shared my concerns with friends from #GamerGate who still followed Ms. Carrera. Let it serve as a warning that disordered human relations all too often go hand in hand with a broken relationship with God.

Different Fables

It may seem trivial in comparison to the crimes with which she is charged, but Ms. Carerra’s endorsement of garbage tier anti-Christian propaganda and glib dismissal of Satan as fable were sufficient red flags for me to stop trusting her. Note also how she identifies Lucifer with the Asherah temple prostitution cult, which she implicitly rebukes the Hebrews for banning. The announcement of the charges saddened but did not entirely surprise me.

To paraphrase a commenter on a previous post, demons devour those who are mired in sin, despise those who repent, and dread those whose repentance bears fruit in holiness.

Sin is a demon crouching at the door, but you can be its master.
