More Charges For Former Christian Camp Director

A former christian camp director, indicted on first degree sex offense against three children, now faces two more charges.

According to the Daily Advance newspaper, 51-year-old Stephen Carter now faces six charges of engaging in sexual activities with children.

The newspaper reports a Perquimans County grand jury handed down the additional indictments Thursday against the former leader of Camp Cale Retreat in Perquimans County. The paper says Carter is out on bond until his trial date, which has not been set.


A Baptist summer camp director in Eastern Carolina is facing sex crime charges against children.

Stephen Carter has been indicted on felony first degree sex offense against a child and felony indecent liberties with a child in Perquimans County.

Carter is the director of Camp Cale Retreat in Perquimans County. Todd Tilley, the Perquimans Clerk of Superior Court, says Carter is not allowed to have any contact with people under the age 18, with the exception of his own children. That stipulation was imposed by the magistrate.

Carter was arrested on July 1, Tilley said, for an alleged incident on June 15. Carter posted an $80,000 bond and remains free.

Tilley said it is up to the district attorney to set Carter's next court date now that the grand jury has indicted him.

The camp's website says the 50-year-old has been directing the camp since 2002. The site also says Carter and his wife recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary.

    Why are so many talking about Mr. Carter as if he has been tried and convicted? In USA, we are "innocent until proven guilty." There are many similar cases on the books in which individuals have been falsely accused, and cases have been manufactured by over-zealous prosecutors. Also, children who have been abused by others or are starving for attention can make such accusations. Look up the Little Rascals and Kern County, Calif. cases. Do not jump to conclusions before all the facts have been revealed.

    Ghandi is not exactly the one to be critisizing Christians.No oe needs to be speaking to bad against Christians....after all thier human frailties are what they are trying to overcome.The same ones non religious people humans have.How Stupid to relate to this group of people as hypocrites and all humanity hides behind something.Gandi wasn't the perfect "whatever" and he sure wasn't Christ.

    Ghandi once said and subscribe to it: When asked what he thought was the best thing about Christianity, he replied "Jesus." When asked about the worst thing about Christianity, he replied..."Christians." All you so-called "Christian" majority out there....your behaviors are despicable. Start LIVING your words, stop being so hypocritical - and STOP preaching to other peoples about how great you are. LIVE like Jesus, forgive, live simply, shun wealth and fame, do right by others. STOP behaving like Christians, helping only you and your own, taking advantage of others while preaching to them, judging others instead of your own selves, making war on other countries in the name of your superiority....instead PRAY more - that you can live more like Jesus did.

    Again we have a good, decent Christian doing despicable things to innocent people, apparently in this case, young children. Why would God create people that would do harm to some of his precious children? Does He get a kick out of being "naughty" sometimes like His followers do during the week before worship time? Yes, this man will be forgiven so what's the big deal, right? Maybe God should concentrate more on ridding the world of people of differing religions and non believers, like me, so it really won't matter to anyone what His faithful followers do. You are forgiven my son. (sarcasm intended)

    I think that his point is: If their is a loving god he would not allow innocent children to be harmed and killed, not if he had the power to stop it.

    Let's not turn this into a religious debate. It is terrible if he truely did this. He has not be found guilty. I pray this does not damage these children, and pray they grow up to be normal adults. And for my fellow Christians, do not hide behind anonymity...if you love God as I do, do not be ashamed to post your name. (Posting full names may cause problems with the wrong people using it against you. I don't want someone who does not share my opinions looking me up in the phone book.)

    How do you know which god to worship? Their are so many, most have bee watered down to fit the taste of the worshiper. Who do you think you are fooling? You can,t even fool me, and you think that you are going to fool the almighty? Most "no all" do not live for the glory of your god. Your just as greedy as the rest of us non-believers that are ruining this planet. The next time you are in church look around at all the smoking,overweight,cheeting,etc... people that think just because they go to church once or twice a week they are going to make to heaven. If they were basing their eternity on the bible I don't think that you would want to pass with a D- and chance Hell. If their is a god I think he would save room for the truly honest folks that are not scared to speek their thoughts. He does let you choose.

    To Anonymous: You said,"always love hearing the Christians say how we have to do more to accomplish whatever the need be at the moment, yet later in thier conversation say that god has a devine plan that no matter our actions will not deviate." ...I just wanted to say that God does have divine power but He works thru us. All it take for evil to succeed is for good ppl to do nothing. God works in this world through the actions of His ppl. And He will also work things out for the good of His ppl and His glory. There is no issue-only simple Faith. His ways are higher than ours and no one completely understand the how or why of things. simply faith to believe that He is in Control! Even when it seems like everything is out of control. I take great comfort in knowing that He is still on the throne!
