Pastor accused of sexually assaulting woman in bizarre ritual that caused her to lose consciousness

Published

on

A Minneapolis pastor allegedly sexually assaulted a woman seeking spiritual guidance and called it “deliverance,” according to Fox 9 News.

Meally Morris Freeman, 55, is a pastor at Grace Mountaineer Tabernacle Church.

A 28-year-old woman filed a complaint claiming Freeman sexually assaulted her while she was unconscious during a deliverance service.

During the deliverance meeting Freeman gave the woman a cup of oil to drink. The two began praying and the woman “fell out.” After the woman woke up, she discovered oil over her entire body. The pastor said he “anointed all places, but that he didn’t see all places.”

Unaware of what was happening the woman went back for a second meeting with Freeman. After going unconscious again, she awoke to her undergarments being pulled off. After expressing to a friend what  happened she realized she had been sexually assaulted.

Freeman did not deny touching the girl, but said: “we insert things into people” and “you don’t ask what happens [during deliverance], you don’t go into details and that deliverance can be very tempting.”

On Tuesday police arrested Freeman. He is in custody at Hennepin County Jail and faces two felony counts of criminal sexual conduct. If convicted, he could get up to 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine.

However, she made clear she wasn't opposed to impeachment because she's a fan of Trump or thinks his conduct isn't condemnable. In a tweet featuring an antagonizing and absurd meme, Wilson explained that she feared Trump would benefit from an impeachment push:

Trump supporters are furious that knitting website Ravelry took a stand on white supremacy

Published

When you think of the knitting community, you might envision an elderly woman, sitting on a rocking chair in front of a fire with a pair of large knitting needles. In truth, the knitting and crocheting demographic has changed drastically in the twenty-first century, becoming younger, hipper, and increasingly tied to DIY culture.

Ravelry is a website where both millennials and knitting grannies (among other demographics) meet to talk about knitting, crocheting, weaving, and other craft and fabric arts. But if you plan to crochet a MAGA hat or knit a Trump sweater, think twice about posting it on Ravelry. The forum-style website, which is often described as "Facebook for knitters," recently issued a statement that they would ban open support of Donald Trump on their site. The widely-publicized move suggests that even communities that aren’t seen as specifically political — like knitters — are becoming politicized, sometimes in toxic ways, in an epoch of extreme political polarization in the United States.
