Daniel Erickson-Hull, 41, of Newham, London, a self-proclaimed evangelic pastor with thousands of followers, known mostly for homophobic remarks, is going to stay behind bars for a while. In online video rants, Erickson-Hull slammed a local school for running an LGBT Awareness Month, alleging that it was “forcing filth” on children and leading a “transgender gender bender agenda.” The pastor, who led Higher Ground Church in Chigwell, admitted his guilt of making and possessing the indecent images of children. Appearing in court, he was sentenced to 15 months’ imprisonment and and ordered to pay a surcharge of £100. Erickson-Hull was also made subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order, putting him on the sex offenders’ register. An NSPCC spokesperson said: “Erickson-Hull’s crimes have helped fuel the vile trade in indecent images of children. We must not forget that every single one of these images is a crime scene and real children are abused so they can be created. Viewing and sharing this terrible material creates a market for it and it is right that people who do so, like Erickson-Hull, face the courts for their crimes.”
