Christian Cult Leader, ‘Black Jesus’, killed in PNG

After leading a cult of 1000’s of Christians, a ministry of rape, murder and sexual abuse, the Christian cult leader and preacher – ‘Black Jesus’ (Steven Tari), was executed by a mob after killing a woman and attacking another. Here’s the BBC News Post:

He had studied to become a Lutheran pastor but disappeared from his theological college after disputing the Bible’s teachings.

He previously said he was the “true Christ” and promised his followers great wealth and redemption. Among his disciples were allegedly dozens of sex slaves he called his “flower girls”. Before his arrest his sect had thousands of followers in the villages.

In 2007 he was captured by villagers who beat him before handing over to the police.

Brazilian Pastor Arrested for Alleged Rape

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,

A leading evangelical Christian pastor has been arrested in a Rio suburb for the alleged rape of six women, including three minors, police said. Marcos Pereira, who has been head of Brazil’s Assembly of God of the Latter Days church for the past 20 years, was detained late on Tuesday.

“He is accused of raping six women, including three under the age of 18,” police inspector Marcio Mendonca Dugubras on Wednesday. The pastor, who made headlines by practicing collective exorcisms of drug addicts and prisoners whom he later converted in Rio jails in the 1990s, was jailed in a maximum security penitentiary in northern Rio.

Dugubras said that Pereira would tell his victims that they were possessed by the devil and therefore needed to have sex with a “holy” person. The victims, all of them poor, consented, thinking that by doing so they “were ridding themselves” of their sins, Dugubras told reporters.

Police had been investigating the pastor for a year and said he might have raped 20 other women since 1998. One of the victims, a member of Pereira’s church, was said to have been sexually abused from the age of 14 to 22. Police said the pastor was also being probed for alleged involvement in drug trafficking, money laundering and homicide.

Pastor Claims the Holy Spirit is in his Genitals, Convinces Congregation to Perform Sexual Acts

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,

At Calling Christians, we’ve read some disturbing stuff but this incident takes the cake. 2013 is off to a very sadistic start. Evangelical Pastor Sobrino Valdeci Picanto from Brazil convinced his congregation that the Holy Spirit was in his genitals and the only way to please God and to receive the Holy Spirit was to allow him to ejaculate on the members of his congregation. Referring to his sexual secretions as ‘divine milk from the Holy Spirit‘, eager to please Jesus, many performed sexual acts to ‘receive the divine milk of the Holy Spirit‘.

He had effectively duped his congregation to believe that the Holy Spirit would only come onto the Church members, through his ejaculation of the divine milk. The Spanish News Website, QUE! says the following:

” He convinced us that only God could come into our lives through the mouth and why he was going to do what he did. Often, after worship, Pastor Valdeci arrived to take us to the part of the funds back to the church and asked us to do oral sex on him until the Holy Spirit comes through ejaculation “.

If that’s not horrible, this would make you sick:

“The truth is that this man is now in jail where he said when he was arrested, intends to continue watering with sacred milk to his cellmates.”

This sort of behaviour comes as no surprise as it is a fact that Christianity has always had a fascination with genitalia, specifically male genitalia, as is noted in their vast history. Wonder what David Wood and Sham Shamoun would have to say about this!

Predator Priest Returns to Duty

A leading Australian priest who sexually preyed on a disabled and vulnerable woman on Sydney’s north shore for 14 years has been allowed to return to preaching and running community groups at one of the nation’s busiest churches.

The recent decision by the Catholic Church to allow Father Tom Knowles to return to full duties at St Francis’ in Melbourne’s central business district after about 16 months of “administrative leave” has outraged his victim and victims’ groups. Father Knowles’s reinstatement comes after the church apologised to Jennifer Herrick, paid her $100,000 in compensation and acknowledged “the harm that can be caused to vulnerable people in such a case”.

Ms Herrick’s story highlights a rarely exposed facet of church abuse: vulnerable adult parishioners who are targeted by their priest for a sexual relationship.

German Priests Carried Out Sexual Abuse for Years

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,

A report about child sexual abuse in the Roman Catholic Church in Germany, based on victim accounts and released by the church this week, showed that priests carefully planned their assaults and frequently abused the same children repeatedly for years.

The report, compiled from information collected from victims and other witnesses who called a hot line run by the church from 2010 until the end of last year, includes the ages of the victims, the locations of the assaults and the repercussions they have suffered since. The accounts were provided in 8,500 calls to the hot line; they are not representative of abuse cases over all and cannot be individually verified. The church said the report contained information from 1,824 people, of whom 1,165 described themselves as victims.

Germany’s bishops have vowed a thorough and impartial investigation into the abuse. Bishop Stephan Ackermann of Trier, who is looking into abuse cases for the German Bishops’ Conference, told reporters after the report was released on Thursday that it served as an example of that intention.
