What do the Rev. Stephen Kiesle and murdered white supremacist Eugene Terre’Blanche have in common? Rumors that they spent the 1980s molesting young boys!
While Kiesle, who was in his 30s at the time his behavior was made known to future-pope Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, was given leniency because of his age, Terre’Blanche was in his 40s when, according to resurfacing allegations from the 80s, he was accused of molesting a teenage boy.
In the 1980s, Terre’Blanche was accused of sexually assaulting a teenage member of the AWB, who said he awoke after a night of heavy partying to find Terre’Blanche on top of him, trying to molest him. These allegations have led to speculation that Terre’Blanche was a latent homosexual – described as a sexual attraction to the same sex without overt action. According to a local psychologist, blatant homophobia – which Terre’Blanche often displayed – is often a sign of its existence.
If true, it would fit a pattern that one of Terre’Blanche’s alleged murders is now putting forth — that Terre’Blanche’s slaying was the result of a sexual assault, involving a 15-year-old.
