London has its very own Bishop Eddie Long.
A fiery anti-gay evangelical Anglo-Nigerian pastor has been sentenced to eight months in prison after pleading guilty to sexual assault. Pastor Albert Odulele is the founder of Glory House International based in East London. Oudele admitted to assaulting a 14-year-old boy and a 21-year-old youth pastor.
The court heard how Odulele ... would frequently share hotel beds while travelling the world with a large entourage of security and pastors. In around 2003, he was watching television with a boy over whom he had "assumed paternal influence". When the boy fell asleep he put his hand in his underwear and fondled him. The boy said he did not know what to do and was too scared to move.
The boy was left "traumatised" and lost interest in academic work, before telling his mother about the abuse. When confronted by the boy's mother in spring last year, Odulele fell to his knees, crying and apologising, prosecutor Tom Nicholson told the court.
"[A] number of church members challenged Odulele about his behaviour and appealed to a bishop of the church without success," reports The Independent.
Oudele is a trained medical doctor. The married pastor's wife was pregnant with their daughter at the time he molested the teen, according to reports. The pastor is described as a "major figure in Christian evangelism" who often told of a dream where he was visited and "touched by an angel.
Oudele often travelled the world with a "large entourage" and "would frequently share hotel beds." The creepy pastor's modus operandi is eerily similar to the Eddie Long case. The Atlanta-based anti-gay mega-church pastor accused of luring at least four young men into sexual relationships and using church funds to give them cash, gifts and cars.
Thanks KA-OS THEORY!
