Youth pastor, Brent Girouex, of the Victory Fellowship Church in Council Bluffs Iowa has been arrested for molesting at least 8 men aged 14 to 23 while trying to cure them of their same sex sexual attractions.
A former youth pastor arrested in Iowa on 60 counts of suspicion of sexual exploitation allegedly told teenage boys he was trying to help them gain “sexual purity in the eyes of God.”
Thirty-one-year-old Brent Girouex, a former youth pastor at Victory Fellowship Church in Council Bluffs, turned himself in to the police in February after four young men came forward with allegations against him, The Daily Nonpareil reported.
Girouex has been released on a $30,000 bond and is due back in court on April 21. If found guilty, he faces up to five years on each charge.
Court documents show Girouex told investigators he had sexual contact with a teenage boy 25 to 50 times over a four-year period, starting when the boy was 14-years-old. He allegedly told investigators that it was his duty as a youth pastor “to help [the teen] with homosexual urges by praying while he had sexual contact with him.”
The ex-Gay movement has destroyed the lives of these young men. If their pastor would have told them the truth, that sexual orientation can not be changed, they would have lived happy productive lives. Now they are forever sexually scarred by an ex-Gay christian ministry and the pastor who could not himself change his sexual orientation.
How many children have been raped by these Exodus International inspired christian pastors. You cannot pray the Gay away.
Every accredited medical, psychological and scientific institution in the United States agrees that homosexuality and heterosexuality are both normal, natural and unchangeable sexual orientations.
Forcing children into the dangerous world of the ex-Gay reparative therapy ministry can result in your child being raped.
There has been one unbiased, scientific peer reviewed study on the success rate of reparative therapy.
Ariel Shidlo and Michael Schroeder found in “Changing Sexual Orientation: A Consumer’s Report”, a peer-reviewed study published in 2002, that 88% of participants failed to achieve a sustained change in their sexual behavior and 3% reported changing their orientation to heterosexual.
The remainder reported either losing all sexual drive or attempting to remain celibate, with no change in attraction. Some of the participants who failed felt a sense of shame and had gone through conversion therapy programs for many years. Others who failed believed that therapy was worthwhile and valuable.
Shidlo and Schroeder also reported that many respondents were harmed by the attempt to change. Of the 8 respondents (out of a sample of 202) who reported a change in sexual orientation, 7 worked as ex-gay counselors or group leaders.
In other words the only people claiming that reparative therapy works are the people making money off the ex-Gay movement. Do not trust your children to these men of religion claiming to cure the homosexual. More often than not they are simply using their position to molest the children brought to them for help.
