This man is a film maker and actor.He had produced films for the church.He was a shining light of perosn to use on church websites for public relations.

I have not got the link,but check google news for mormon stories.

He claimed to have been inspired of the lord to make his films.The area presidency and public relations managers for the church must be hiding red faces.

Not able t leave the country so he is unable to attend the premier of his latest movie, in Utah. Apparently funded by church members.

Interesting.

one of his victims took his life. In addition to everything else, he is also responsible for that 41 year old man's death. Despicable.

There are phone numbers listed for Australian kids (and now adults) who were abused by Mr. Scott.

"Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

For help and support, call Lifeline 13 11 14, beyondblue 1300 22 4636, Kids Helpline 1800 55 1800 (24/7 crisis support) or headspace 1800 650 890."

I guess that regular Mormon church attendance did not do much for his character.

"Obstacles which seemed insurmountable were overcome, doors opened, and opportunities presented," he said last year.

Sounds just like Monson !!!

I just googled Darran Scott and found an article that shows up on google but fails to come up when clicked on:

http://www.mormonnewsroom.org.au/article/faith-miracles-aussie-filmmaker

It appears the LDS memory hole is working efficiently and effectively. Luckily for us there is a cached version:

http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:HsA3bvhhdwwJ:www.mormonnewsroom.org.au/article/faith-miracles-aussie-filmmaker+&cd=16&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=au

Apparently Darren Scott was "a high councillor in the Gippsland Stake".

Interestingly, the quote "Obstacles which seemed insurmountable were overcome, doors opened, and opportunities presented" is mentioned word for word in the 2012 article in relation to the film "The Playbook". At least "the Lord" is consistent.

Apparently the Australian tax payer helped fund the movie The Playbook:

“Our theatrical release for Darran through the Faith on Film program meant he was able to achieve a 40% rebate from the Govt on his entire budget.” said Heritage HM’s Rod Hopping.

I saw he was once known as Darran Page I'm trying to recall the guy as he's my age and in the next stake across from me though it would be 90 min drive away. Our paths must have crossed if he was active as a YSA but I just can't recall him and I don't remember the members bragging about him as a famous Mormon actor or film maker.

perfect candidate for execution by castration followed by exsanguination, as far as I'm concerned.

.....I would propose that he be extradited to the USA and be forced to spend the rest of his life as Jerry Sandusky's cellmate.

His crimes will carry a life sentence, if convicted.

For what he did, that's small penance, but at least it will get him off the streets and away from children.

In prison he'll be toast soon enough.

If not toast, a little marmalade.
