Of course he is, if he claims to be.
Does he know God, of course not. Unless he has a change of heart, he is bound for hell, if he is guilty.
Mike Ulmer not only claims to be a Christian. He's the pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church.
Would Eladar feel happier to have his teenage daughter alone in a secluded spot with
Mike Ulmer (who's been charged with rape) or with a random Muslim man?
The Bible apparently approves of rape under some circumstances (such as of female captives).
“When you go out to war against your enemies and the Lord, your God, delivers them
into your hand, so that you take captives, if you see a comely woman among the
captives and become so enamored of her that you wish to have her as wife, you may
take her home to your house. But before she may live there, she must shave her head
and pare her nails and lay aside her captive’s garb. After she has mourned her father
and mother for a full month, you may have relations with her, and you shall be her
husband and she shall be your wife. However, if later on you lose your liking for her, you
shall give her her freedom, if she wishes it; but you shall not sell her or enslave her,
since she was married to you under compulsion.”
