Sounds hot if it were coming from Sean Cody press release, but not from Brent Girouex, a 31-year-old pastor caught with his pants around his ankles. The Iowa native was arrested on 60 counts of “suspicion of sexual exploitation by a counselor or therapist” after several adults came forward to claim they had been molested by him as teenagers.
Girouex’s defense? He was trying out a new method of “curing homosexuality” by helping young boys gain “sexual purity” through prayer while they were having sex. He says it was his duty to “help them” by engaging in “mutual” sexual contact, and that “when they would ejaculate, they would be getting rid of the evil thoughts in their mind.”
Although he confessed to having sex with four young men beginning in 2007, at least eight have come forward claiming they were also molested. Girouex told police he had sex with one of his victims—a 14-year-old boy—between 25-50 times, though the victim now claims it actually happened between 50-100 times.
Girouex is currently free on a $30,000 bond. He’s probably not welcome in his hometown anymore, but we’re sure the Vatican has a lovely place for him to stay.
