Birds Of A Feather: Pastor, assistant, jailed for drugging, raping female church members

News reports have revealed the incarceration of a 59-year-old assistant pastor at the Liberty Pentecostal Church, in Keighley, West Yorkshire, England, Laurence Peterson, for helping the senior pastor sexually assault female members of the church.

According to the reports, the church minister, 70-year-old Rev. John Wilson, performed “grotesque” exorcisms on members of the congregation while Peterson blocked doors and held victims down.

The jury also heard that Peterson may have drugged women's tea to make them more compliant.
