*What people won’t do in the name of the Lord.
SMH at the unmitigated gall of a self-proclaimed Minnesota pastor, Jacoby Kindred, 61, that has been accused of sexually abusing the two daughters of his sons girlfriend. The pastor, who preaches at One Accord Ministries, has allegedly been raping the girls for the past decade – since they were six years old.
The girls are now ages 14 and 16.
KARE 11 reports that the alleged abuse “involved fondling, oral stimulation, and rape,” and took place mostly at Kindred’s Maplewood, Minn., home, while the victims stayed over.
Though the the pastor told Pioneer Press the mother is lying on him because she is angry with him; police began their investigation in July after the girls’ mother said she found out about a letter written by one of her daughters that described sexual acts with Kindred.
“Anyone can make up anything when you sit there long enough and you rehearse it,” Kindred told the newspaper when they reached out to him for comment. “All a woman has to do [in Minnesota] is make an accusation, true or false, and the man’s going to be in trouble.”
A criminal complaint obtained by the Pioneer Press has the “pastor” telling one of the victims “the devil was inside her and he could take the demons out of her.”
Pioneer Press spoke to the pastor by phone. He claims to be out of town, and will not say where he is. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
