Popular Christian Radio Host Arrested For Child Molestation
Christian Family Radio WCSG (part of Michigan's Cornerstone University) has fired popular DJ/host John Balyo after he was arrested and charged with child molestation last week.
"Balyo allegedly paid a defendant, who is the subject of a separate HSI child-exploitation investigation, to arrange sexual encounters with minor victims. Further details about the investigation are being withheld pending the defendant's appearance in court to answer to the charges," a release from the Department of Homeland Security explained on Friday.
Balyo was arrested Friday at the Big Ticket Festival, one of the largest Christian festivals in the U.S., according to the DHS. The conservative Christian DJ allegedly paid Ronald Lee Moser, owner of a DarkNet website that deals in child sex trafficking, to find him young boys for sexual encounters. When police raided Balyo's home earlier in the month, he was allegedly found with a 12-year old boy and child porn on his hard drive.
"Late this morning we learned of the arrest and allegations against John Balyo, WCSG morning radio host," WCSG general manager Chris Lemke said in an official statement. "We are shocked and deeply saddened by the news as you might be as well."
"We trust in a God who is just and sovereign and will see us through this difficult time," Lemke added. "Effective today, John Balyo is no longer affiliated with WCSG Radio. As part of the WCSG family we ask you to join us in praying for God to be glorified through this situation and for justice to prevail. We also ask for your prayers for John, his family, and all those involved surrounding the allegations," he added.
Lemke then declared that Balyo's crimes are proof that "Satan is on the loose" in America.
Ironically (but not surprisingly), Cornerstone University requires students to sign a "Lifestyle Statement" in a promise to abstain from “every form of immorality, including immoral sexual behavior, homosexuality, lying, stealing and cheating.”
