White supremacist guilty of knifing

Herald Sun (Australia), Aug. 16, 2002

A white supremacist, who recently vowed nothing could stop him, was behind bars last night after being convicted of stabbing a man who challenged his views.

Patrick John O’Sullivan, Victorian leader of the World Church of the Creator, was found guilty by a County Court jury of bashing and stabbing a man.

O’Sullivan, 31, claims to have been ordained as a reverend by the church’s US affiliates, but the jury yesterday proved to be an even higher power when it found him guilty of two serious assault charges.

The court heard he was chanting “white power” with a group of people at a Fitzroy house-warming in May 1999.

Another guest at the party started talking to O’Sullivan about his white supremacist views.

They then started to debate whether O’Sullivan could be considered a Nazi because he did not have German blood.

The jury found he then either butted or punched the victim in the head before stabbing him in the abdomen.
