â€œWhen they would ejaculate, they would be getting rid of the evil thoughts in their mind.â€
That’s what a former youth pastor told detectives. Â He’s accused of sexually exploiting a number of young men in an effort, he said, to help them find ‘sexual purity in the eyes of God’.
From the newspaper article:
A former Council Bluffs youth pastor allegedly told the teens he is accused of sexually exploiting that he was trying to help them gain â€œsexual purity in the eyes of God.â€
Brent Girouex, 31, told Council Bluffs police detectives in February that starting in 2007 he had sexual contact with four young men who he knew while he was a youth pastor for Victory Fellowship Church.
Pottawattamie County Attorney Matt Wilber said the number has risen since Girouex first talked with police on Feb. 16. Now, Wilber said there are at least eight people who have come forward.
Girouex was arrested on 60 counts of suspicion of sexual exploitation by a counselor or therapist earlier this month and has been released on a $30,000 bond. He is due back in court on April 21.

Nothing surprises me anymore.
Thing is… this may have made perfect sense to this guy.
The deceiver is pretty good at… yep… deceiving.
It’s scary, actually.
Have you ever been deceived? Â Really deceived? Â Care to share your story?
Is it possible, that this man actually believed that, as he was praying over these young men and having sex with them, that he was somehow able to bring them closer to God? Â I mean, outside of insanity, is this even possible to be deceived to this point that it actually seems right?
