[UPDATED with Girl Relative Victim Revealed:] Christopher Raymond Olague, Calvary Chapel Pastor, Accused Anew of Child Molestation

Categories: Crime-iny
christopher-raymond-olague_150.jpg
UPDATE, NOV. 29, 2:38 P.M.: We noted yesterday that many commenters to our original post on Christopher Raymond Olague's child molestation arrest defended the Calvary Chapel pastor and demonized the 8-year-old girl who was allegedly paid $40 not to say anything about being victimized. We wondered if Olague's latest arrest on suspicion of committing a lewd act on a child and possessing kiddie porn would diminish that support. Our prayer was answered by a Christian follower who trashed the little girl anew. It seems Olague would have to reveal he's marrying a man to get diehard panties in a bunch.

Re-read the latter comments below, then ask yourself whether these revelations courtesy of the Orange County District Attorney's office (OCDA) might sway the faithful:

  • A 6-year-old female relative of Olague's is among those depicted in the child pornography on the pastor's computer;

  • By the way, those were no innocent family photos, according to Olaque's accusers. They were "graphic, sexually explicit child pornography images";

  • Here's what he's accused of doing to the 8-year-old in a grocery store parking lot: rubbing her legs, thighs and arms; unbuttoning his pants and pulling them down slightly; and asking her to kiss him on the cheek.

The purpose of the OCDA statement was to announce Olague's arraignment this afternoon on these charges: two felony counts of lewd acts on a child under 14, one felony count each of kidnapping for child molest, attempting to dissuade a witness, using a minor for sex acts, and possession and control of child pornography. He also faces sentencing enhancement allegations for kidnapping in the commission of a sexual assault and lewd acts against multiple victims.

If convicted, the Westminster 31-year-old, who is married to a fellow pastor and has five daughters, could be preaching to the prison church choir for 30 years to life--plus an additional 13 years and four months for good measure.


ORIGINAL POST, NOV. 28, 8:49 A.M.: Among the 118 comments to our post on the original arrest of Christopher Raymond Olague--for allegedly molesting an 8-year-old girl and giving her $40 not to say anything--were many defending the Calvary Chapel pastor's character and questioning the girl's account. It will be interesting to see if any support for the Westminster 39-year-old will melt away with his new arrest on charges of committing a lewd act on a second child and possessing images of minors committing sexual acts.

Olague was originally arrested on Oct. 5 after the 8-year-old Olague picked up for a play date with one of his five daughters told her mother she was instead driven to a Huntington Beach park grocery store parking lot, where she was allegedly molested and given $40 not to say anything. The pastor of Refuge Southland Calvary Chapel in Buena Park was booked into the Huntington Beach city jail on suspicion of committing a lewd act on a child less than 14 years of age and preventing/dissuading a witness.


He was released from jail after posting $100,000 bail and had a court date on those charges scheduled today. But, here's the deal with child molestation cases, investigators keep working them. A search warrant served on Olague's Westminster home produced a computer that was taken into evidence, according to the Huntington Beach Police Department's Facebook page, which reveals detectives found images of child pornography and information that indicated another child had allegedly been molested.

Based on the new information, Olague was arrested on the new criminal charges that day before Thanksgiving at a relative's La Palma home and held in lieu of $1 million bail.

Besides being a church pastor--the Refuge Southland website says he's been married for 15 years to fellow pastor Diana Olague--the defendant has been a youth soccer coach. Because he's been in positions of trust with children, authorities fear there may be other victims. Get a good look at the fellow below, and if you believe he has victimized you or someone you know, contact either Detective Kevin Johnson at 714.960.8834 or Detective Mike Szyperski at 714.536.5988.

To start off I know im gonna get blasted on this site for speaking out but right now I don't care. As someone that knows pastor chris for over two years this whole thing saddens me what is going on in his life and it saddens me to see how meny people are so quick to judge other people for someones eles mistake in life. As someone that knows the guy it's hard for me to make up my mind on if he is innocent or guilty that's for the law to find out not us. I read on here so much hate to chuck smith and other cc pastors with that they must be doing something right in there walks with God because being persecuted shows them that people don't like it and they are doing something right. By all means yell and call me names all you want but understand when you do all you are doing is adding your name to my pray list. God bless and have a wonderful day.

"...be a man of God in his own life." agree 100 percent. Now how about coping to the church that $16 million of the chuch's offerings and tithes found their way, for the most part, into the Smith family control. That is a very good place to start this trip.

Dude chuck can't control what others do. All he can do is be a man of God in his own life. How the *smurf* are you going to hold him accountable for what another man did??

Why did Chuck Smith then demand a Severance Package for Ralph Wood at a so-called "independent" CC Oceanside? Seems that an "independent" 501c3 Board of CC Oceanside required Chuck Smith's "Accountability" to strong-arm them into giving Ralph Wood a Severance Package to Chuck's liking...but Chuck's not responsible for Child Molesters...got it.

What about Richard Cimino, CC Grass Valley? Chuck Smith directly intervened in that situation as well. Many many other examples. Chuck Smith at the 2011 CC Senior Pastor's Conference told Calvinists to "Get out!" of the Movement. Sounds like "Accountability" to me. How's about Chuckie says to the Child Abusers and Child Molesters, "Get out!"...nope. He goes to their Calvary Chapel Franchise and endorses them and mugs for cameras (as he does with Bob Grenier of CC Visalia to this moment).

Here's the article that documents the Ralph Wood, Richard Cimino and others who have been held "Accountable" by Chuck Smith for FAAAARRRR less than child abuse and molestation.

It seems Matt Coker is either deluded, never read all the comments on the original post or perhaps has a bias on matters such as these.  He claims the child was "demonized" while there was considerable support for the Pastor.The truth is that the comments were about 50/50 - fair-minded folks can go back & read for themselves.  People who seemed to immediately believe the allegations were true ranged from compassionate for the child to infuriated at the suspect - the latter spewing venom against Pastors, churches & even God.Only a couple comments on the other side found the allegations difficult to believe.  But most of the comments simply encouraged restraint, something that all of us would want if we were falsely accused of something so horrendous.  But most of these so-called "supporters" seemed to agree that IF a conviction occurred, that there would need to be consequences for such a terrible act.The Pastor was demonized, NOT the child.  He was tried, convicted & lynched within minutes of the news.  I challenge Mr. Coker to present to us which comments "demonized" the child.  The child received plenty of compassion & respect from all of us.I have met the suspect, but never knew him well.  I am well aware that sin knows no boundaries - all of us are guilty of it.  But I was certainly hopeful that the story would turn out different.  It doesn't look good for the suspect at this time, does it. It is our human nature to allow our biases to take over & consume us thus closing our minds to any information to the contrary of what we want to believe.  ALL of us have chosen to believe things quickly because we wanted to only to find out later that they were NOT true.I don't know whether people like Matt Coker is at war w/ God or not (I've never heard of a person yet who has won such a war).  But it's sad when you have to put words in your enemies' mouths or spin a story in order to convince others you are winning your war.For the record, Matt - none of us are your enemies.  You have an enemy, but it isn't God, nor any of us.

It's been said, "when one can't refute the message, he will instead attack the messenger".  When you speak like that, you reveal nothing about others, but plenty about yourself.If you're sure that what you stand for is true, then shouldn't facts be enough to support your belief?  Instead, you twist, exaggerate, misrepresent, even lie to the few people who read you because of that big chip on your shoulder that's crushing you into the ground.  You should come clean w/ everybody here & reveal what your underlying agenda is - it has nothing to do w/ this case at all, does it?The best journalists report the news, they don't try to shape it.

Matt and OC Weekly, thanks for the update. I'm sure there will be some Calvary Chapel CCool Aid Drinkers who will still defend this depraved degenerate "pastor". Heck, Chuck Smith will probably go speak at the perp's Church this Sunday and smile for cameras.

Well he was in a public park after all. What normal red blooded fully grown man who has accepted Christ doesn't sit with an 8 year old girl (not his own child) rubbing her legs and thighs with his pants unbuttoned and slightly pulled down asking her to kiss his cheek and then giving her $40 not to tell anyone, especially JE-ZEUS?

This Olague guy is spectacularly stupid.  After being arrested once, he still had pre-adult pr0n on this computer.  He should be arrested for being a fucking dumbass.

But let's not forget that Olague is forgiven and is allowed to enter the gates of heaven; unlike Matt Coker who will be feeling the flames of hell licking at his feet!

20ft. Heyzeus, (Sarc alert): must be Huntington Beach PD conspiracy. That's the only explanation at this point. They must've set Olague up. They tricked him into being with two kids that weren't his, alone (I mean what normal male adult doesn't like to hang out alone with young children that aren't his?)...and they planted nekked pics of children on Olague's computer to frame him I'm sure. Chris Olague is a Chuck Smith anointed Calvary Chapel Pastor! "Touch NOT God's Anointed!" and all...he's got like Diplomatic Immunity or something or special Profit Powers, like Chuck. Olague is a victim and a martyr. Clearly.

Alex Grenier

I'm not so sure 20ft Heyzeus. Olague very well could be a Wolf and not saved and a candidate for hell.

Jude 1:4 For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.

Titus 1:16 They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.

Is there a reason why this is only being covered on the OC Weekly blog and not in the actual paper?  A child molesting, child porn viewing pastor seems like something the community at large should be told about, and not something that should just be kept to the online blog portion of a newpaper.

Deepest parts of hell! That's where this dude is going! Where are all of his supporters on the message board now?? Who in their right mind "questions the accountability of an 8 year old"?!!? Great way to make the victim feel even more ashamed! Assholes!

felsenmeer
felsenmeer

in "questioning the accountability of an 8 year old", people aren't accusing her of lying.  the concern is more due to the fact that she may not be able to articulate what happened, she may have adults on all sides of the dispute manipulating her in ways someone older couldn't be manipulated, and that years may pass between the incident and its courtroom resolution.

Good point. Well made. Now perform magic and explain the child porn on the computer and two girls making the allegations. Sure know the pics didn't come with his Logos bible software.

I question her accountability because I know her. If you all knew the real situation it is nothing like the detectives are reporting. It is so sickening to know that you can be accused of something whether true or not and your life can be turned upside down and the truth sickely twisted. What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty? If you only knew... I would be worrying more about yourself and your own life choices. Where are you going to end up?

Motel, you're right, probably just coincidence. (Sarc alert): I mean, who doesn't have a little child porn on their computer or in their possession? I mean really? And, geez, what's a couple of children coming forward alleging molestation. This rush to judgment really is ridiculous. Now if the guy is arrested like 10 times, I'm on board, but not until then...especially since Chuck Smith, Roger Wing and CCOF doesn't seem to care. ;-)

Hey mr. Grenier. One: just because there was child porn on this fellow's computer doesn't prove he was into child porn; and two, never trust a blogger whose last name sounds like a cocktail. Go back to your hole.

Here's a tip: Don't be a Calvary Chapel Pastor who makes it a habit to be alone with young kids who aren't his own, don't have child porn...that makes claims that you molested them sound pretty credible. I'll bet you there is a conviction. Want to place a wager?

I can't say anymore at this time. The lawyer doesn't want any defense discussed until the trial if there is going to be one. The prosecution is grossly twisting things. It is scary to see what the media can do as well. Lord help us all if we are ever in situation where the media is involved.

While I do agree with you, people like Chuck Smith would say Olague is already saved and therefore he gets to sit by Jesus in Heaven in the afterlife.

Ah, very interesting. NOW Olague is claiming Affiliation with Calvary Chapel Huntington Beach only and has removed the Chuck Smith and Calvary Chapel Distinctives stuff. What a mess. The lawyers are going to have a field day sorting this out...
