And they continue to be. I’m partially mentioning this because I somehow ended up watching a Dateline NBC about that super skeez Mormon cult with my wife over the weekend. That guy didn’t just fuck some kids, he fucked lots and lots of kids. His entire spiritual philosophy seemed to be based around the idea that this was his right as a prophet of God.
The other thing would be this new scandal about a Florida mega church pastor who supposedly abused a 4 year old. I’ve always said that at the heart of nearly any cult or cult like church is an older guy who wants to fuck much younger women. In this case, it wasn’t even a cult but a mega church, and it wasn’t much younger women but kids. Ugh. (from the Miami Herald):
“Pastor Robert Coy, the former Las Vegas casino entertainment director turned religious leader for one of Florida’s biggest megachurches, has been accused of molesting a 4-year-old girl.
Coy, who resigned from Calvary Chapel in April 2014 under circumstances that church leaders then called a “moral failing,” was named to police in 2015 as the man who molested the child, according to police reports first reported Tuesday in Miami New Times.
Coy has not been charged.
In 2015, a California woman called Coral Springs police when she learned of the alleged longtime abuse of her daughter by Coy while he was at Calvary. According to the police report, the woman’s daughter, then in her teens, confirmed the account to police.
Coy, the victim told police, forced her to perform oral sex, inappropriately touched her and had her touch his penis. The abuse stopped when she hit her teen years, she said. She reportedly did not tell her family at the time the incidents were occurring.
In April 2016, the victim of the alleged molestation showed up in the lobby of the Coral Springs police department and said she “had an experience with God and has found forgiveness,” according to the police report. She told police she was about to go on a mission trip and asked to destroy all records of her initial report.
The police said they cannot destroy records, and she left, according to the report.
Coy, the “superstar preacher,” who founded the Fort Lauderdale church with his then-wife Diane in 1985, built a 75-acre site on Cypress Creek Road into a franchise with nine Florida locations — from the Keys to Naples — and a flock topping 20,000 worshipers.”
