Religious Weirdo Marries 10-Year-Old Niece

Story here.

Fall, now 58, saw nothing wrong with the fact that the bride was his niece or that she was 10 when they “married,” according to Mound police.

He told the girl that it was God’s will that they marry. He told police this justified their union, legally and morally.

“He absolutely believes what he’s saying,” said Jami Wittke, a detective with the Mound Police Department, who interviewed Fall. “He said the Bible tells him that it’s OK to have a relationship with your niece, to marry someone” that young.

“The Bible,” you say? We ought to look into that.

Part of the reason for Fall’s confidence in his own righteousness, say people who know him, is that he sees himself as being chosen by God.

“I’ve talked to family members and more than one has said Jim Fall believes he’s a prophet of God, of Christ,” Wittke said. “They were afraid of him.”

“Everything is permissible for me,” from First Corinthians 6:12, was one of Fall’s favorite passages, police said.

“The wife’s body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband,” from First Corinthians 7:4, was another.

  1. Mr Fall claims that he is a prophet of God and he can marry a ten year old girl. Don’t you know prophets can do that. Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him, married ‘Aisha a six year old girl, daughter of Abu Bakr, his close ally and friend. She was his favourite wife.
