Phoenix Pastor Abusing Girls For Years

Phoenix pastor sentenced to prison for molesting underage girls.

I'm not sure if this will give Catholics any comfort, but it seems their priests are not the only ones who use the trusted access their position gives them to abuse minors and vulnerable adults.

51 year-old Jose Vicente Morales, pastor of the Iglesia Cristiana Impacto de Fe, a small, primarily Spanish-speaking church in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, was doing exactly that throughout the 1990 and again between 2007 and 2011.

He was sentenced to 12 year in prison followed by a life-time on probation by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Warren Granville, last Monday, having been arrested in 2016. His offences came to light when one of his victims, then aged 17, began self-harming and told her mother that Morales had been sexually abusing her since the age of 12. Another victim gave evidence that he sexually abused her regularly when she was between the ages of 7 and 12. Her mother was also sexually abused Morales when she was a child.

He was also accused of impregnating a girl when she was between 13 and 14 years old and of raping an 18 year-old member of his congregation, although he claimed that sexual relationship was consensual. He pleaded guilty to the other charges. He will be eligible for release in 2029.

I wonder how the morally repugnant people who try to defend paedophile Catholic priest with the excuse that they are homosexuals and not really paedophiles, and so it's somehow the fault of liberals and homosexuals for making it acceptable, will react to this clear case of heterosexual paedophilia by a predatory priest. Presumably, Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, who argued that it wasn't even really paedophilia if the children were pubescent, regardless of the legal age of consent, would defend Morales on the grounds that his victims were mostly pubescent girls, so at least he wasn't gay.
