Patheos. “My pastor was my rapist.” An Alabama pastor is accused of raping, torturing, and sexually abusing multiple children, including the rape of a 9-year-old girl on her father’s grave. AL.com reports Mack Charles Andrews, a pastor at the conservative United Pentecostal Church, is accused of sexually torturing, abusing, and raping multiple underage victims.

One of Andrews’ victims spoke about the abuse using the pseudonym “Jane” to conceal her identity. Jane reports Andrews allegedly started “grooming” her for sexual abuse when she was only 7. Jane says she lost her virginity to her pastor on her father’s grave when she was just 9 years old, and explains how Andrews used religious superstition to terrorized her: He told me if I didn’t say anything, he would come back and put flowers on the grave. Jane reports the heinous abuse began when she was only 7-years-old, and was part of the “grooming process” to prepare her for the rape she would endure two years later. It was like a cult.

Bobby Jindal, Ted Cruz, and Mike Huckabee have said and done some pretty idiotic things in the past regarding their religious beliefs, but this one takes the cake. At least three presidential candidates will attend a conference next week that is organized by a pastor well-known for demanding the execution of homosexuals.

It was reported that Ben Carson has also RSVP’d. Kevin Swanson has said some very disgusting things about people he has never even met, simply because of the gender they are attracted to. Right Wing Watch said this about Swanson: “Kevin Swanson, the conference’s chief organizer, is a far-right pastor and host of the ‘Generations Radio’ program, on which he has frequently claimed that the government should put gay people to death, warned that the Girl Scouts and the movie ‘Frozen’ turn girls into lesbians and blamed natural disasters on gay people and women who wear pants.” I mean, the idiocy is palpable.
