Christianity continues to prove itself to be the family values religion. A Brazilian Evangelical Christian pastor has been arrested and charged with rape for convincing female parishioners to pleasure him orally, claiming that his penis was blessed and that his “milk” was sacred.
Several women came forward after the pastor was caught red-handed “rubbing his penis in the face of a local merchant,” promising her increased sales from his “divine liquid.” One of his followers described the salty scam:
He convinced us that only God could come into our lives through the mouth. Often, after worship, Pastor Valdeci asked us to do oral sex on him until the Holy Spirit came through ejaculation and delivered funds to the church.
Sadly, and almost unbelievably, this is not satire. I say “almost unbelievably” because the hypocritical actions of Christians who claim to own a more moral existence than everyone else have become commonplace. From the Duggars’ little cheating diddler to the court clerk on her 4th marriage who won’t issue licenses to gay couples because God would be upset to the mega church millionaires exposed by John Oliver as frauds, Christianity has become less of a religion and more of a bad punchline of late.
All the while true Christians who practice love, tolerance and peace pay the price for a rising group of cretins, insolent to their God and traitorous to their faith.
This particular pastor, however, takes the cake. According to Denise Pinheiro, Delegate of the Region:
Sobrino Valdeci Picanto, 59, was arrested in Apore, Goiás, Brazil, for raping several women attending his church. He gave as an excuse that his penis had been consecrated with ‘divine semen of the Holy Spirit.’
Valdecir came to abuse some elderly, and defends himself by saying that ‘he had an encounter with Jesus in a brothel and gave him the mission of spreading the sacred semen throughout the state, beginning with the faithful Apore Assembly, of which he is responsible.’
When we acted Valdeci offered no resistance and even asked if I wanted to be part of the kingdom of heaven on the way to the police station.
The exact number of women the pervert “consecrated” is unknown. This entire story goes to show not only how reprehensible people can be in the name of God, but how eager others are to give up their free will for a piece of the Holy Spirit.
