31-year-old Brent Girouex was arrested on 60 counts of suspicion of sexual exploitation by a counselor or therapist.
The former youth counselor told police he did it to “help with homosexual urges by praying while he had sexual contact with [them].” He claimed the acts would give his victims “sexual purity.” …
Girouex is said to have told detectives “when they would ejaculate, they would be getting rid of the evil thoughts in their mind.”
The pastor is married and has four kids. He clearly takes his vows before God very seriously.
As is par for the course in cases involving clergy, Girouex won’t do any time behind bars.
Last week a judge handed down a 17-year prison sentence but promptly suspended it to allow Girouex to get sex offender treatment and probation. As long as Girouex doesn’t violate the terms of his probation, he won’t do any jail time.
What do you suppose the chances are of an openly secular youth counselor getting off with a mere slap on the wrist?
