A former Iowa youth pastor has been indicted on four counts of sexual exploitation of minors. But it’s ok, because by having gay sex with underage boys he was helping them to achieve sexual and moral purity. This is a bit like breaking into someone’s house to protect them from intruders.
Brent Girouex was arrested on 60 counts of suspicion of sexual exploitation by a counselor or therapist after authorities found out about his actions.
Girouex confessed to detectives he has had sexual relations with four young men starting in 2007 in order to help them gain “sexual purity” in the eyes of God.
I’m inclined to think he really believed it. Anybody who was lying would come up with something, anything, better than that.
