"Friend of Falwell" Minister Dies During Bizarre Sex Play

Posted by Paddy at 2:12 PM on October 9, 2007.

Paddy: An Alabama minister who died in June of "accidental mechanical asphyxia" was found hogtied and wearing two complete wet suits.

This post, written by Paddy, originally appeared on Cliff Schecter's Brave New Films Blog

It started pretty innocently in June....

A Montgomery minister was found dead in his home Sunday.

Lt. Mark Drinkard, a police spokesman, said the Reverend Gary M- Aldridge was found about 10 a-m by a member of his church who became concerned after he failed to show up for church services.

(snip)

Montgomery Mayor Bobby Bright, in a newspaper interview, hinted that the minister may have been the victim of foul play.

Aldridge had been a senior pastor at Thorington Road Baptist Church for 15 years.


But the Smoking Gun got the details thru the police report today (warning-disturbing)
http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/years/2007/1008072scuba1.html

OCTOBER 8--An Alabama minister who died in June of "accidental mechanical asphyxia" was found hogtied and wearing two complete wet suits, including a face mask, diving gloves and slippers, rubberized underwear, and a head mask, according to an autopsy report.

Investigators determined that Rev. Gary Aldridge's death was not caused by foul play and that the 51-year-old pastor of Montgomery's Thorington Road Baptist Church was alone in his home at the time he died (while apparently in the midst of some autoerotic undertaking). While the Montgomery Advertiser, which first obtained the autopsy records, reported on Aldridge's two wet suits, the family newspaper chose not to mention what police discovered inside the minister's rubber briefs.

I'm not going to ask for an explanation, so don't, but what about this could be sexy? Sorry, nuh uh, don't get it.

Oh, and funny enough.....

Gary Aldridge graduated from Liberty University and later worked for the late Jerry Falwell.

And of course, the fundies are in denial.

Seriously. I think that's what we're seeing here.

23. Nah, I think it's CYA.
They think they can protect themselves by pretending to be virtuous. They figure that makes them less suspicious. Like that Republican Congressman who got caught molesting pages last year, he was heading up all sorts of anti-molestation groups.

141. And might have saved his life, if it was hooked up
to his mouth via the regulator. The poor dude couldn't breathe.

The thing about this is.... he could not have POSSIBLY tied his hands behind his own back, and tied his feet to it all, or he could have gotten himself back out of this contraption, I would think.

My assumption is that he had a kinky partner who took off when the dude died.

160. That's the thing.
When I was younger, I babysat a kid who could actually do that, hogtie himself behind his back. I distinctly remember telling him not to do that, "because that's how people don't get found for days." Case in point, evidently.

Death Of Montgomery Minister Deeply Affects Snowdoun Pastor

Aug 28, 2007 11:31 PM



Nearly 7 years ago pastor Steve Campbell used a Sunday service to dedicate the new Snowdoun Baptist Church. Campbell had a special guest in the congregation that day.. Reverend Gary Aldridge.

"Gary was a dear friend of mine," Campbell said.

Reverend Gary Aldridge was found dead in his home in east Montgomery. Apparently murdered. He was the senior pastor at Thorington Road Baptist Church for the last 15 years.

Campbell says he and Aldridge went way back. In fact, when Campbell felt the gentle push to become a minister, it was Gary Aldridge who encouraged him to answer the call.

"He was a great encourager. I'll always be grateful to him for that," said Campbell.

In his office at Snowdoun Baptist Church, Campbell showed us some pictures of a missionary trip he and Aldridge had taken a few years ago. Pastor Campbell remembered a man who was real, no pretense, a man who gave of himself.

Gary Aldridge graduated from Liberty University and later worked for the late Jerry Falwell. A former colleague at the school remembered him as well.

"He went on to become one of the deans and the students loved him. He had a tremendous impact on them," said Dr. Bob Miller of Liberty University.

As investigators try to figure out what happened, Steve Campbell says this is by far the hardest thing he's ever had to go through yet despite the loss of a close, personal friend, Steve Campbell says he won't even bother asking 'why.'

"It's easy to get into that which is understandable but I believe God is still in control," Campbell said.

Campbell says he last talked with Aldridge by phone two weeks ago. He described it as a 'light-hearted' conversation with no hint of trouble.

Campbell tells us there will be a prayer service Tuesday night in memory of Gary Aldridge. That service begins at 7 o clock at the Thorington Road Baptist Church.

70. Why cover a dildo with a condom? Probably so you don't have to worry about cleaning up the dildo
after you're finished with your "session". Just peel off the protective cover and throw it away. Your dildo is ready for another use with no messy cleanup to worry about.

And no, I am NOT speaking from personal knowledge. (I know what y'all are thinking...) It just seems like the most logical explanation to me, when you consider the use the dildo was being put to -- especially if you planned on keeping the dildo around for future autoerotic adventures. The good reverend was concerned with germs and sanitation.

138. Using a condom with a dildo makes clean up much easier
It also prevents spread of STDs, if it's being shared with somebody else.

18. Don't know whether to laugh or cry.
We all know there's a connection between conservative family values and unusual sex, but how does one tease out that connection and look at how to protect them from themselves as well as to protect ourselves from them.

Unusual sex is just fine but it becomes perverted when pain or death are involved. Getting caught, time after time doesn't seem to faze them or make them wonder about some sort of sickness.
I suppose selective listening and blaming everyone but the perp can come in pretty handy.
Sad and preposterous.

You need to be fairly flexible and this isn't something that one tries just once.

That said, it's the hypocrisy that matters. Plenty of people do things far kinkier than that, but hopefully, they aren't condemning all people who do kinky things.

So his hands were tied behind his back, he was in a diving suit. he was all
tied up, and he a dildo with a codom in his "back door." Sounds like he
must have had somebody there to play with.

Betya he was against gay marriage.

27. The sad thing:
Edited on Tue Oct-09-07 05:41 PM by backscatter712
There are quite a lot of people with "kinks" out there, and IMHO, they shouldn't have to closet themselves - there are groups where they can get together, get as nasty as they want in a safe environment, and not feel guilty about it - just use a safeword.

People in the BDSM community face even more repression and nastiness from society than the GLBT community, and the publicity everyone sees from repressed conservatives pulling a Larry Craig isn't helping much.

As far as I'm concerned, as long as it's between consenting adults, the holier-than-thous need to fuck off.

88. Here's one I find amusing....
It was in a Village Voice article about 20 years ago on one woman's journey to becoming a Dominatrix.

She was a newbie and information regarding safe practices were not as common then as they have become recently.

She had a client who wanted to be encased in Plaster. So she has a local hardware store deliver a couple of hundred pounds of plaster up to her NY apartment. She sticks the guy in the bathtub, and starts mixing and dumping in plaster.

Now, I've had a number of face and upper chest molds done with plaster and there are two things to consider....the most important being breathing.
That was no problem.

The other problem is getting the person out of the plaster.

In my case, a little pre-plaster greasing up with vaseline and hey, no issues. In this case....not so much.

She was close to calling the rescue squad when she decided to just chip him out.

Gingerly.

You live and learn.

And as a note of caution to those who might consider such a course of action....Plaster heats up. Depending on how you mix it, it can get rather warm, rather quickly. People with sensitive skin, can be burned.

There are probably other, much safer ways to get the same effect. Since my experience was job related, I can't speak to the fetishist out there.

Do your homework!

44. I know what you mean.
I spent the day hooking up a new computer monitor and memory card reader at my friend's house. He's a gay Episcopal priest, in a 30 year committed relationship with a choir master. They were going wild today: they were going to meet at the gym and then go out to dinner and turn in early.

Crazed libertines that they are.

I swear, the right is where all the really, really creative, bizarre and outlandish sex is going on. When the right pitches itself an cerebral anurysm over whatever sexual thing their heads are exploding about, it's because they ain't gettin' them some of that action and are all pissed off about it.

Of course, my theory that the 'pukes and the right is where all the whiteboy coke dealers from the 80's ended up, if they didn't get busted, figures into all this.

Look, in my 27 years of indulgent behavior in the big time music bidness, as a heathen roadie, not once did wetsuits enter into it. Unless we went diving with the ex-SEAL security guy for the band, of course.

I could be totally wrong on this as I base it on the MSM article. I consider him an arsehole fundie preacher of fire and brimstone and repentance who died because he was sexually repressed. He died a hypocrite who would likely chastise and "diss" anyone whom was into the same form of kinkiness.

64. Evidently Eros CAN Kill
I try not to point fingers at other people for their more imaginative erotic practices (At least as long as it involves consenting adults and DOES NOT INVOLVE children, the judgement-impaired and animals), because I'm a sick and twisted 'vert myself. Alas, it looks like Reverend Gary died from the clash between his closeted erotic expression and his public front. Breath play is nothing to kid around with, ever. That's one reason I don't do it. However, Reverend Gary seemed to be so worried about someone else finding out about his fetish that he played alone--and died because of it.

I will give the Reverend Gary credit for one thing, though. At least he didn't try to make his private fetish a compulsory practice for the rest of us.

RIP

It was "officially" ruled a suicide, but word got around pretty quickly how he really died (churches are some of the biggest hotbeds of gossip you'll ever find).

I do not understand the predilection some on the right apparently have for twisted, risky sex.

"Investigators determined that Rev. Gary Aldridge's death was not caused by foul play and that the 51-year-old pastor of Montgomery's Thorington Road Baptist Church was alone in his home at the time he died (while apparently in the midst of some autoerotic undertaking)."

Unbelievable. I mean, I have heard of erotic asphyxia but never of anyone being alone and doing it. :wtf:

God, I hope I don't ever die in some embarrassing way like that. I mean...you only die once, right? I have always said I wanted to come and go at the same time, but maybe I should be more specific and say "with another partner present." What a way to go...

134. if you come and go with another person present, you're screwing up that other person's life
if there's some reason you want to check out (say terminal illness, whatever), and you want a happy ending as you go, i would think it FAR better to fly solo than have another person involved -- you could be ruining that other person's life if they go to prison for having helped you -- as this thread reveals, even progressive/liberal people are often uncomfortable with bondage, erotic asphyxiation, etc. and are looking around for someone to blame for what seems clearly to me was an accident

this guy may have been a jerk, he may have been foolish, but at least no one else is going to prison for his mistake or his urges

135. trust me, he could have hogtied himself
Edited on Wed Oct-10-07 11:57 AM by pitohui
take a look at the bondage literature sometime, these folks are very creative and, assuming he is heterosexual, there are a lot more men who are interested in being in extreme bondage than there are women interested in putting them there

i wouldn't go on a witchhunt for a partner, who probably doesn't exist, when we consider that the investigators in this town would have EVERY motive to try to cry "foul play" and put the blame anywhere except on the preacher himself

if they say he acted alone, i'm satisfied

105. If he hadn't been a conservative whackjob--
--he'd have been in touch with the BDSM community and learned a few safety pointers.

107. Comments from a friend are relevant here:
The RightWingers aren't really hypocrites.
The truth is much more disturbing than that. Hypocrisy is saying one thing and doing the other. They say one thing because they are obsessed with doing the other. So they are consistent, but deranged.

The religious right calls "gay" a "lifestyle" and a "choice." They aren't anti-gay people so much as they are anti-gay behavior, as they imagine that, and they spend a lot of time imagining it. They aren't really anti-gay in any meaningful sense either, being anti-gay is merely a position in a sick drama, and is part of a confusion about sex, human relations, dominance and violence. That which they find uncomfortable about themselves they project out onto reality and onto others, where they can do battle with it, harming and terrorizing others in the process.

They think that all of us are equally gay, but that some of us "choose" to act on it and some don't. To their way of thinking, being "against gay" but then "slipping" and doing "gay things" is vastly superior to people openly advocating "gay." This tells us that the word "gay" means something different to them than it does to most people. They are projecting their own internal dissonance onto the rest of the world. Much of the religious right is fueled by this confusion about sexuality, which also includes confusing violence and dominance with sexuality.

Features of this mindset include an inability to empathize with others, since the internal struggle dominates everything and precludes really seeing people. Everything about the right wing movement we are seeing is fueled by this perverted - twisted, altered, misrepresented - sexuality.

Dobson can say with a straight face, as he did about the Foley scandal, that the root problem is too much tolerance and diversity. That is because in his world - in his mind, which he cannot distinguish from reality - we are all depraved maniacs barely held in check by threats of punishment. This same pattern now controls our foreign policy - we have had too much peace and understanding, you see, and that is dangerous.

So they aren't hypocrites. They are insane in the medical model, and Satanic and evil in the religious model. Up actually is down for them - they aren't lying.

This is why the incompetence charge against the Republican leadership is off base. They aren't trying to do the right thing and failing. They are trying to do evil (or sick) things and succeeding. They think preying on children helps the children. They think killing people saves them. It is all much more weird and disturbing than most people realize.

108. okay, why are conservatives such kinky bastards?
I really do think they're more likely to be into weird stuff than we are, but short of getting them and us together and feeding us all truth serum, I can't exactly prove it.

127. That's my take on them too
Into serious kink and I do mean K-I-N-K.

And I'm not buying that this guy got himself into that get-up, hog-tied himself and then stuck a dildo up his ass by himself. It's possible just not very probable. I say his playmate fled. Wonder if he was married and where were the wife and kiddies when all of this was going on?

111. Personally..
I mostly just feel badly for the family - not only did the lose a loved one, but also in a way that was rather embarrassing. I also feel bad for the departed, because I imagine that's something that he's done for a long time and something that he's probably hated himself for.

119. It's all in the biblical prophesies he believed
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8, KJV)


It's very simple: He suited up in a diving suit so that he could check out these "divers places" and see how the end-of-times prophecy was proceeding.

The dildo was there so he wouldn't be "left behind."

155. Any possibility it was a set up?
Chimpolini loves to take out his enemies in nasty ways, and several people have pointed out that the costume seems a little hard to manage solo.

Maybe this guy made the huge mistake of actually preaching the Gospel?

159. those several people don't seem to have any credentials in bondage or rubber fetish
i don't see a set-up here, i see a very creative solo bondage/rubber game gone horribly wrong

the people sputtering, but no way he could have hogtied himself don't know whereof they speak, not that total ignorance of the subject at hand ever stops anyone from posting on the internet
