Megachurch pastor who raped young ‘concubines’ also accused of paying for mistress’ abortion

Published

on

A Virginia pastor convicted on charges of raping young girls is also being accused of funding an abortion for a married woman he was having an affair with, WRIC reports.

Geronimo Aguilar, 45,  pastor of the Richmond Outreach Center, is about to be sentenced on seven counts of raping a girl starting when she was 13, and her sister, starting when she was 11, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

“We were having an affair,” the woman, who is a former parishioner, told the Times-Dispatch. “I went to him and told him I would abort but I didn’t have any money.”

One of the women accusing Aguilar of molesting her told WRIC that the pastor sent an email to her 17-year-old daughter. The email solicited her daughter in the same way Aguilar had solicited her when she was a teenager.

“Every great man of God had concubines,” the email read.

The victim said she continued to have a sexual relationship with Aguilar even after she was grown and married. Her husband, she said, was Aguilar’s close friend. When her husband found out about the relationship, Aguilar gave the couple $10,000 to move out of state. Eventually, they divorced.

The allegations come amid testimony calling Aguilar a predator and “wolf in sheep’s clothing,” according to media reports.

“He is wolf in sheep’s clothing because that’s what he did to my family he was a predator on my family,” the father of one of the victims told the court, according to WRIC.

Aguilar’s own wife testified against him during the trial, WTVR reports. She accused him of sleeping with her sister-in-law and called his affairs “emotionally draining.”

Aguilar now faces life in prison.

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Wednesday brushed aside questions about whether Americans should be concerned about an immigrant man who drowned along with his child while trying to cross the Rio Grande and enter the United States.

"It can be a very rough river," Trump said in explaining the immigrants' deaths.

He then went on to blame Democrats for the drowned immigrants on the grounds that changing asylum laws would purportedly deter people fleeing violence in their home countries from trying to enter the United States.

"That father, who probably was this wonderful guy with his daughter, things like that probably wouldn't happen [with different asylum laws]," he said.

Published

Nearly 100 Google employees asked the organizer's of the San Francisco Pride parade to ban the tech giant over its handling of hate speech online.

An online petition asked that Google be excluded from this weekend's event and removed as a sponsor of the parade, and employees sent a letter to event organizers explaining their frustration, reported Bloomberg.

“Whenever we press for change, we are told only that the company will ‘take a hard look at these policies,’” employees told the parade's board of directors. “But we are never given a commitment to improve, and when we ask when these improvements will be made, we are always told to be patient. We are told to wait."
