No jail time for pastor who raped young boys to cure them of homosexuality.

No jail time for pastor who raped young boys to cure them of homosexuality. September 30, 2013

Earlier this month I wrote about Brent Girouex.  Girouex is a pastor who would rape boys in his congregation, as he tells it, to purge them of sexual impurity.  This sounds like binge eating to lose weight to me…

Turns out he won’t be serving a day of jail time unless he breaks probation:

Girouex told detectives that his actions were meant to “help with homosexual urges by praying while he had sexual contact with [them]” in order to keep them “sexually pure” for God. Because, as Girouex explained to detectives, ”when they would ejaculate, they would be getting rid of the evil thoughts in their mind.”

A judge issued a 17-year prison sentence for the heinous crimes, but then inexplicably suspended the sentence to allow Girouex to get sex offender treatment and probation. Girouex’s probation will last five years, the maximum allowed by law.

Many, including Girouex’s own wife, are not pleased with the suspended sentence . KCCI reports Erin Girouex, the pastor’s wife, said probation is not enough. She joined the victims to say they are frustrated. She also said victims of sexual misconduct should not be afraid to come forward, despite what happened in court.

At least his wife has some sense.


Great quote from a person on my facebook wall:

Somewhere there’s a guy in jail who got busted for pot going:

"In my opinion, Doritos should be boycotted. Not for rainbow chips, not for GMOs, but ..."

How is that Doritos boycott going?
"How does wanting to have a good time with friends/family when most people are celebrating ..."
