Texas pastor promised to restore woman’s purity by fondling her in ‘true religious ritual’: police
A pastor in El Paso, Texas, is in jail after being accused of fondling a woman during a “religious ritual,” KVIA reports.
Noel Jimenez, 69, is pastor at Iglesia Alabanza y Adoracion. He told a woman described as “emotionally dependent” on him that she was spiritually “stagnant.” He told her she could regain her purity if he anointed her.
He was able to convince her that it was a “true religious ritual.”
“It’s sad because a lot of people I know did participate with this person and that’s not right for him to teach and help the community when he’s doing this,” a neighbor, who didn’t want to be identified, told Fox14.
He is being held on $75,000 bail.
