It's not just the Roman Catholic Church, no. 385665

by Feòrag

A Zambian pastor has been sentenced to five years' imprisonment with hard labour for the sexual abuse of a 14-year-old girl.

The court heard that on December 20, last year, (Pastor Jonathan) Mwansa took the girl, who wanted him to pray for a sick child, to his home in Natuseko township where he was conducting healing sessions to other sick people.
The pastor encouraged the girl who was supposed to go with him to her parents home to pray for the sick to stay for a night at his house.
She was later in the night defiled by Mwansa on his bed, which he had shared with her and his step daughter after telling her that his action was prompted by a prophecy he had received.
After defiling her, he left the bedroom and went to continue with his healing prayers to the sick people who were gathered in the sitting room.
