The long awaited judgment was finally delivered today , February 3rd 2014, in the case of the Pastor who instead of tending his flock, he decided to devour them. As if dependency was a sin, all the women who fell victim to this serial rapist had some dependency syndrome. As the Pastor stated in his defence, he was merely doing these women a favour by providing for all their needs. So he felt entitled to use them for sexual gratification in exchange.
The man's modus operandi was to lure the women to his house in order to provide for their needs. All manner of extortion was also employed to instill fear . Especially fear of going to hell. As if dependency was not enough, the women were brainwashed to the extent of worshipping and fearing him as if he was God. This is a clear example of what happens in a Cult, the leader is glorified and feared to such an extent that the men in the church close their eyes and plug their ears even when their wives are being ravished by the "man of God".
Finally, the curtain dropped and the case of the Pastor who raped his female flock just because they depended on him for their physical and spiritual needs was concluded and he will serve four decades in prison for this misdemeanor. It is however, interesting to note that his 11 official wives stood by him and still stand by him, as if dependency was not a sin.
