If the police in Los Angeles County is right, then we need to really pray….HARD!!
The Catholic Church leads, as churches romp with juveniles, adults, male and female; married and single, elevating sexual immorality to a Church of Satan norm, negating Apostle Paul’s admonitions to the Church of God: “Flee sexual immorality…..!”
Mexico-based megachurch La Luz del Mundo is in the news, as the latest in the sexual immorality scandal church. Abcnews reported that Naasón Joaquín García, the church’s self-proclaimed apostle, poses a threat to “hundreds of girls” if he gets released. Deputy Attorney General Amanda Plisner said this in Los Angeles Superior Court, arguing that he be held without bail as the investigation — which could lead to additional charges and victims — continues.
Joaquín García, 50, and his co-defendants were arrested earlier this month on suspicion of child rape, statutory rape, molestation, human trafficking, child pornography and extortion. The charges in the 26-count felony complaint detail allegations involving three girls and one woman between 2015 and 2018 in Los Angeles County.
The defendants’ attorneys protested the high bail for their clients — $25 million for Ocampo and $5 million for Oaxaca — and said none of them have criminal histories, private wealth or access to church funds.
Joaquín García’s lawyers argue that his $50M bail is meant to punish and intimidate their client and paint him as guilty and tarnish La Luz del Mundo’s 5 million followers. The attorneys say in court documents Joaquín García is being discriminated against because of his race, ethnicity and religion.
Naasón Joaquín García’s bail at $50M is the highest in the history of Los Angeles County.
Ocampo is alleged to have recruited and groomed minors to serve Joaquín García.
Investigators’ preliminary review of evidence, including roughly 60 electronic devices such as cellphones, shows the alleged sexual abuse goes beyond the initial charges and more may be forthcoming, Plisner said. She said there also may be more victims in the case.
Placed side by side with many similar cases in Africa and Nigeria, the beast in man may know no taming, letting loose when lured to believe it can get away with murder.
Way forward? If God never gives up on man, we must find ways to discipline, control, monitor and motivate the man-animal (manimal?), so that the human race can progress, under God the Creator, Owner and Sole Heir of ALL things made, seen and unseen .
