A former youth Pastor is out on bond today after he admitted to authorities that he had sex with teenage boys to cure them of their homosexuality.
31-year-old Brent Girouex of Council Bluffs, Iowa was arrested earlier this month on 60 counts of suspicion of sexual exploitation by a counselor or therapist.
In February, Girouex reportedly told police that he had sexual contact with four young men starting in 2007 in order to help them gain “sexual purity in the eyes of God.”
Pottawattamie County Attorney Matt Wilber told local paper The Daily Nonpareil that at least eight men have come forward with complaints that Girouex molested them.
Three young men who were teens at the time of their molestation told authorities that they went to Giourex’s home for help with “sexual purity.”
One of them in particular estimates that he had sex with the Pastor 50 to 100 times.
Giourex reportedly gave details to authorities and told them,
“When they would ejaculate, they would be getting rid of the evil thoughts in their mind.”
Investigators are said to be looking for more victims.
The Pastor is free on $30,000 bond.
