Apparently taking a cue from Homeopaths, where you treat a problem with something that’s similar to the problem, 31-year-old youth pastor Brent Girouex says that he wasn’t having sex with the teenage boys. He was simply praying — while having sexual contact — in order to help the young men overcome their homosexual urges:
In February, Girouex told Council Bluffs police detectives that he had sexual contact with four young men starting in 2007 in order to help them gain “sexual purity in the eyes of God.”
[…] Court documents indicated Girouex told investigators the most sexual contact he had was with one teen over a four-year period, starting when the boy was 14 years old. Calling the contact “mutual,” he said it had occurred between “25 and 50 times” during that period.
When investigators spoke to the teen, who’s now an adult, he told them the number was between 50 and 100.
[…] “When they would ejaculate, they would be getting rid of the evil thoughts in their mind,” Girouex allegedly told detectives.
Next up, he’ll help a thief overcome his urge to steal by helping him rob banks and praying the whole time. Let’s hope he doesn’t get a serial killer looking for help with his sinful urges.
