The founder and grifter of a South Carolina Bible college faces more than 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to federal charges stemming from overworking and underpaying international students, according to WYFF.

Reginald Wayne Miller, the founder of Cathedral Bible College in Marion, pleaded guilty on Wednesday in federal court in Florence, according to reports.


[su_center_ad]Miller pleaded guilty to four felony charges and two misdemeanors involving labor fraud, visa fraud and failing to pay minimum wages.

This sounds suspiciously like indentured servitude. (see: Rush Limbaugh)

Prosecutors claim the college classes were a sham and students were forced to live in substandard conditions and work at the college or Miller’s home for very little pay. According to authorities, students who refused to work were threatened with deportation.

In total, the charges carry a combined penalty of 41 years in prison and more than $1 million in fines.

A fine example of a Christian! May he learn his lesson the hard way – in prison. He should have a great deal of time to think about the immigrant workers he took advantage of and blackmailed with threats of deportation.

    Prisons are filled with christians. Maybe he’ll bunk up with former Gov. McDonnell.

      I’d rather see McDonnell bunk with Bubba.

      I’m pretty sure that ‘IF’ McDonnell has to “do time” (big IF) he will be vacationing at the Chateau ‘Butner’ (Correctional complex) in SC. …. They have the best tennis courts there AND he can spend weekends with his Family too. He might also get a few tips on “stocks” out in the yard…
      Not to sure the “Christian” is rich and or powerful enough to land a “vacation” spot there….

    Obviously not a true christian. Who could believe a TRUE CHRISTIAN (trademark pending) would ever, ever, eveeeeeer do anything illegal.

    Color me shocked.

      I agree. Don’t you get tired of that old “not a real christian” defensive line? There’s all kinds of christians, and all of them are real. They just vary by degrees, but they all believe in the same fairy tale.

      • Dwendt44 September 4th, 2014 at 11:23 pm

        Right on. The 93% of prison inmates are somehow not ‘REAL’ christians either. ??
        Maybe the 1/2 of 1% that are Atheist aren’t real Atheist either.

        • M D Reese September 5th, 2014 at 7:21 pm

          The most recent figures I’ve seen has more like 20% claiming no belief. I’m guessing it’s a lot higher. People feel pressured to fit in–sometimes out of fear for their lives–and so will claim to believe.

        right up to the words fairy tale, I was ready to pounce in my ineffectual way but, yippe doo, the fairy tale wins the day – belief somehow negates knowledge if I have the language right.

        • M D Reese September 5th, 2014 at 7:21 pm

          I’m referring to the non-plussed feeling I get when I hear one religious believer criticizing the make-believe beliefs of other religious believers. It’s ALL superstitious falderal.

    He thought that he would get away with it. They need to investigate other, supposedly, House of Christians. I sure others are doing the same.

    • M D Reese September 4th, 2014 at 11:15 pm

      We need to tax them like any other business. They can file a tax return like all the rest of us and claim the actual good works that they do and pay taxes on the rest.

      • whatthe46 September 5th, 2014 at 3:55 am

        there have been cases where parents have been devout parishioners or congregants of a church for years, have donated money for years, in the K’s and when it comes to light that their loved one was gay/lesbian or have committed suicide, or was murdered its… HA HA in your face forfeited. won’t give them the respect of a service at all. so wrong.

        • M D Reese September 5th, 2014 at 7:15 pm

          Yup–christian love can be pretty damn fickle. I wonder what Jesus would think of them.

  4. crc3 September 4th, 2014 at 11:54 pm

    Criminals doing evil things while claiming to be followers of the “written word” should be treated especially harsh…

    • whatthe46 September 5th, 2014 at 3:45 am

      unless they are transferred to a different parish.

  5. fahvel September 5th, 2014 at 3:22 am

    if the victims get the million, ok! but the 41years should be an absolute without any chance of seeing free fresh air ever again.

  6. whatthe46 September 5th, 2014 at 3:44 am

    i have absolutely no problem with his going to prison for the rest of his life for what he has done to the desperate and the disregarded. that being said, why is it that a child rapist, a rapist (period) or mr. afluenza gets nearly no time or no time at all?
