got no crystal ball… what a great song. Back to business – we have our first case of clergy sexual abuse involving that odd religion known as Santeria. Pastor Miguel Leon was found guilty of 37 counts of sex acts and endangering the welfare of a child. Two teen brothers were the victims.
Prosecutors said Leon told the brothers, 14 and 16, that by performing sex acts with him, they would acquire spiritual energy, power, and a higher level of enlightenment. The victims were abused from December 2008 to July 2009.
Leon will serve 20 very hard years in prison.
I need to add this one to my PowerPoint deck. Never let your son participate in a private religious ritual with a Santeria pastor. But then, it seems like common sense to me.
