California pastor used church to ‘satisfy his fetish’ for explicit photos — and his wife helped: lawsuit

Published

on

A former parishioner sued a California church and its former pastors — who she accused of sexual assault, battery and harassment.

The woman, a mother of two in her 30s, sued former Church for Life pastors Robert Litzinger and Cindy Litzinger seeking compensatory and punitive damages, reported the Santa Maria Times.

Robert Litzinger stepped down from church leadership in June 2016 over complaints about his statements on pornography during pre-marriage counseling sessions, when he allegedly told women how to masturbate and urged them to do “whatever their husbands wanted.”

The lawsuit claims Litzinger used his position as lead pastor to “satisfy his sexual fetishes,” and accused his wife of assisting and encouraging his conduct.

Robert Litzinger encouraged women to discuss their sex lives with him, according to the lawsuit, and said doing so made them strong Christian women.

He encouraged brides-to-be to send him sexually explicit photos and shared his own with them, the suit claims.

The woman claims Litzinger sent her a photo of himself with his wife, with a note saying “just had a great session.”

The couple invited the woman to their home for a prayer group, and she says Litzinger groped her — and his wife defended his actions as an “innocent mistake.”

The woman said other pastors at Church of Life did nothing to address her complaints about Litzinger’s conduct with her between 2014 and 2016.

Cindy Litzinger’s attorneys deny any wrongdoing, and her husband’s attorney say the woman should not be eligible to damages because the statute of limitations had passed.

Trump adviser Stephen Miller avoiding press and outsiders as president ramps up racist rhetoric: report

Stephen Miller

According to a report from the Daily Beast, senior advisor for policy to Donald Trump, Stephen Miller is becoming more reclusive at the White House at the same time that the president is ramping up his hateful rhetoric against immigrants -- a topic on which the controversial Miller has the president's ear.

With the Beast noting, "Over the years, the 33-year-old senior policy adviser to the president has become virtually synonymous with the draconian immigration measures of the administration. He was a driving force behind the president’s brutal family-separation policy, one of the architects of Trump’s 'Muslim travel ban,' constantly agitates against legal immigration levels and refugees, and serves as the top White House speechwriter," the report states that Miller is rarely seen or heard from lately.

GOP now panicking about Trump because they’re losing ‘plausible deniability’ for their racist agenda: columnist

Published

on

After smearing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as anti-Semitic—-and letting the crowd at his Greenville, North Carolina rally roar "send her back!" for more than 10 seconds -- President Donald Trump was forced to distance himself from the chant.

He falsely claimed that he'd continued his speech immediately after the crowd started yelling. On Friday, the New York Times reported that Trump was under intense pressure by his daughter, Ivanka, and Vice President Mike Pence, to disavow the chants.

Writing in the Washington Post, columnist Greg Sargent lays out why "send her back" makes Republicans so nervous, when they seem perfectly fine with radical immigration policies like zero-tolerance and the separation of kids from their parents, which are applied to non-white asylum seekers.
