PROBLEMS ON THE RIGHT
Apparitions are very much a part of Catholicism on the right. Devotion to approved apparitions is one thing, but a whole host of mystics have sprung up and take the followers on a merry chase. Among them is the Little Pebble, William Kamm.
The Courier and Mail reports:
A SELF-proclaimed prophet who claimed to receive messages from the Virgin Mary began a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old follower he selected to be one of his "queens", a Sydney court has heard.
William Kamm, also known as Little Pebble, is accused of having sex with the girl when she was living with her family in a religious community he established at Cambewarra, near Nowra, on the New South Wales south coast.
Mr Kamm created the community, the Order of Saint Charbel, in the late 1980s and planned to take 12 queens and 72 princesses who would all conceive his children, the NSW District Court heard today.
Followers would meet on the 13th day of every month when Mr Kamm would receive messages from the Virgin Mary, Crown Prosecutor Sara Bowers said.
