Frank Houston and Brian Houston

Donald Elley of Bellingen July 31, 2021

The First Hillsong

The first name of Hillsong was Eastern Christian Life Centre. The church met in Sherbrooke Hall, Double Bay, Sydney. The first meeting was on 16 July 1977 led by Frank Houston, Brian Houston’s father.

There were hundreds like him. At this time Frank was having a secret homosexual affair with his young worship pastor Peter Laughton aged 23.

Introduction 

This blog article is the most comprehensive account available anywhere of Frank Houston founder of Hillsong’s boy and teen sex abuse victims.

I have revealed them all to the world on this, my personal blogs-site. This has always been with their permission and their desire if their names are mentioned.

I do not search for victims. They always contact me.

I do not seek media publicity. They approach me for information.

Three new accounts of sexual abuse by Frank Houston 11 July 2020

Two New Zealand Herald articles of 11 July 2020 mention three accounts of sexual abuse by Frank Houston that I didn’t know about until now.

The number of known Frank Houston boy and male teen victims I have identified is now 17 or more.

Recent revelations that Frank sexually abuse boys in a New Zealand Salvation Army boys home in the 1940s and on evangelistic crusades amongst New Zealand Maoris have thrown the needle off my count. It is no longer possible for me to put an accurate figure on the number of Frank Houston’s boy victims globally.

When I add in abuse at a boys home in the 1940s and in AOG crusades and ministry trips from the 1950s to 1960s in New Zealand, Australia, Sri Lanka, Chile and the countries, the possibilities of the number of boy victims is endless.

I believe from the evidence there are over 400 boy and teen victims, maybe over 1000.

Frank’s son Brian, who I know personally, said to Australian media in 2014, “We may never know the number of victims”.

A New Zealand Herald article of 11 July 2020 mentions three accounts of sexual abuse by Frank Houston that I didn’t know about until now.

Frank Houston preaching in in 1969 during his time as Assemblies of God in New Zealand General Superintendent from 1965 to 1977.

New Zealand Herald article of 11 July 2020:

Three Frank Houston child sex abuse accounts which are new to me.

New abuse account one:

“From 1945 to 1948, Frank Houston worked at a boys’ home in Temuka run by the Salvation Army, which has confirmed receiving a complaint in 2003 from someone who said they suffered abuse at his hands during that time. A spokeswoman for the Salvation Army said it had provided information relating to the complaint to the Royal Commission.”

New abuse account two:

“In the mid-1970s, a young man in Palmerston North told a visiting pastor he had been sexually assaulted by Frank Houston.”

“Then came a second knock on the door. Barry was approached by a church elder who – aware of the complaint over Williams – disclosed an allegation of sexual offending by Frank Houston.

New abuse account three:

“Through the elder, and then the father of the victims, Barry learned of Houston visiting the Waikato area about 25 years earlier on a crusade. Like the other cases – of which Barry was unaware until years later – Houston stayed overnight, and then descended on the boys after dark to sexually assault them in their childhood beds.”

My comments:

I’ve been writing for many years that I believe Frank Houston sexually abused boys in the New Zealand Salvation Army from 1942. Frank Houston was a captain in the New Zealand Salvation Army in the 1940s. He was kicked out of that movement. I’ve believed for a long time that the reason was because of complaints of child sexual abuse.

The pedophile Frank Houston in one of his early disguises as a Salvation Army Captain in Auckland New Zealand in the 1940s to early 1950s.

I’ve heard about Frank Houston doing crusades in rural areas of New Zealand, particularly amongst indigenous New Zealanders, the Maoris. Frank’s son Brian mentions this in a romantic and euphoric way in his last book, ‘Live, Love, Lead’. However, I’ve always had bad feelings about these crusades of Frank and his “love” and interest in the Maori people. It’s sad to think that Frank was sexually abusing heaps of Maori boys in rural areas of New Zealand in the 1960s to 1970s.

Note of 18 November 2018

Frank Houston boy sex abuse victim, Brett Sengstock, known as boy victim AHA, who appeared anonymously at the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse has appeared on the Australian Channel Nine Sixty Minutes TV program recently to tell his story in person because he is dying of cancer.

Boy victim AHA Brett Sengstock – Brett is dying of cancer. Brett wants Brian Houston brought to justice for hiding and protecting his old pedophile dad from going to the clink – from 1999 when Frank confessed to November 2004 age he died.

Note of 22 April 2018

I know Hillsong and the Houstons better than anyone, having been at Hillsong from its beginnings.

Frank Houston, Brian Houston’s father, came to Sydney from New Zealand in 1977. He was on the run from New Zealand police for untold and almost innumerable sex offences against little boys during the previous four decades.

I was at Hillsong before Brian Houston became a pastor in 1982, and before Hillsong was called Hillsong.

I helped Frank Houston build up Hillsong for a decade from 1981 to 1990.

The more I write about Hillsong, the sicker I feel. And the more I know about Hillsong, the sicker I feel.

But I go on writing, to warn people off Hillsong and to give Frank Houston’s multitudes of boy victims a voice.

My mission and goal is to destroy Hillsong. To expose it. To warn people off it. To set the record straight. To outline the truth about Hillsong.

Note of 27 October 2017

Pastor Brian Houston, the current head pastor of Hillsong Global Church is to face pedophile protection charges some time in the near future from the Australian police and authorities.

I’ve edited the article below reflecting current up to date information.

Frank Houston

“Pastor” Brian Houston pictured with his child rapist dad Frank. Brian hid and protected Frank from the Australian police from when Frank confessed in 1999, to when Frank died five years later in 2004.

This article and its updates

This article outlines the history of Pastor Frank Houston the founder of Hillsong and his secret sexual abuse of hundreds of little boys, male pre-teens and male teens over five or more decades. This occurred for possibly 70 years if you include his grandchildren and ‘rent boys’ (underage male prostitutes).

This site is the most authoritative and comprehensive site on Hillsong corruption, Houston corruption and Hillsong pedophilia.

This article was first published on this site on 9 September 2012, prior to the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse of 2013 to 2016.

It has been updated since as more facts have come to light and more events have unfolded.

The secret lifelong secret pedophile Frank Houston with his complicit, protective, lying wife Hazel. She knew about Frank’s “problem with boys” as she referred to it from the 1940s when Frank was removed from the New Zealand Salvation Army for sexually abusing boys.

Frank was a lifelong secret pedophile

I have come to the conclusion from the evidence I’ve compiled over many years, and from my experience from 1981 to 2000 as an attender of Hillsong, in the 1980s as a senior lay pastor, and especially since hearing boy victim AHA’s testimony, that the Frank Houston was a lifelong secret pedophile who used the Christian ministry to secretly and stealthily, access little boys and young teens for child and under-age sexual abuse and child rape.

In other words, Frank Houston was first a pedophile. He was not at any time a genuine Christian or a genuine Christin pastor. Frank Houston was a wolf in sheep’s clothing all his life from his early teens.

Frank used Christian ministry to access little children.

Frank Houston’s primary sexual focus and preference was little pre-pubescent boys aged 7 to 11.

Frank liked male teens or young adult men if little boys were not available.

In his prime as a male in the 1960s to 1970s Frank had an insatiable desire for little boys and young male teens. But mainly little boys.

A pedophile was a primary focus on pubescent children is a hebephile, a clinical psychological term. 

Hebephilia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

“Hebephilia is the strong, persistent sexual interest by adults in pubescent children who are in early adolescence, typically ages 11–14 and showing Tanner stages 2 to 3 of physical development. It differs from pedophilia (the primary or exclusive sexual interest in prepubescent children), and from ephebophilia (the primary sexual interest in later adolescents, typically ages 15–19). While individuals with a sexual preference for adults may have some sexual interest in pubescent-aged individuals, researchers and clinical diagnoses have proposed that hebephilia is characterized by a sexual preference for pubescent rather than adult partners.”

Frank Houston was primarily a pedophile

Frank Houston was primarily a pedophile in that his sexual orientation and focus was primarily on pre-pubescent boys aged 7 to 11. In my mind, this orientation makes Frank Houstons sex crimes against children even more heinous, especially as he was masquerading and pretending to be a Christian pastor.

Frank Houston’s crimes were not a one-off or occasional issue with child sex crimes, but a lifelong secret and persistent activity involving hundreds, if not thousands of boy and male teen victims. 

Frank was bisexual

Frank was bisexual in that he had five children.

It is probable that Frank did not have sex with his wife in later decades.

No one will ever know since they both died in 2004. And Hazel was not the type to tell.

Hazel knew Frank was a pedophile from the 1940s when he was reported for abusing children while working at a New Zealand Salvation Army home in the 1940s. He was removed from the Salvos.

So Hazel was complicit, codependent, a protector of Frank and an enabler.

Frank was a homosexual 

In 1980, Frank Houston, aged 58, embarked on a four year homosexual affair with his young 23 year old worship leader Peter Laughton.

Sexual involvement with a 20 year old male rather than with little boys and early teen boys was an exception, although there is evidence of countless masked homosexual encounters over Frank Houston’s whole lifetime with males over the age of homosexual consent which is 16 to 18 in most Western countries.

Pastor Brian Houston, current head pastor of Hillsong – Brian, who I knew personally for twenty years, has been recommended to the Australian police by the Australian Royal Commission to be charged with pedophile protection crimes.

Pastor Brian Houston the current head of Hillsong Church has been recommended for prosecution for pedophile protection crimes

In October 2015 the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in its Findings recommended Pastor Brian Houston the current head of Hillsong Church be charged with pedophile protection crimes by the Australian Police and Authorities.

Pastor Brian Houston and his Hillsong and Australian Christian Churches leadership associates conspired to shelter Brian’s father, the lifelong secret pedophile Frank Houston, from the NSW Police. Frank Houston confessed to a lifetime of secret child sexual abuse and child raping in 1999.

Note written on 19 October 2014:

In early October 2014, The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse examined the Australian Assemblies of God (which has a new name of Australian Christian Churches), Hillsong and Pastors Frank and Brian Houston.

If you are interested in down-loading the Royal Commission transcripts, testimonies of victims and other relevant documents go to http://www.childabuseroyalcommission.gov.au.

To read a series of my blog articles on the Royal Commission on this site, they start on 20 September 2014 with “Hillsong. Pastor Brian Houston. Part One. Royal Commission…”. If you google this title you’ll find it and other articles written by me on this my personal blog-site.

You can then scroll a few articles further into October 2014 and you’ll see all the articles sequentially in chronological order on “Hillsong. Pastor Brian Houston…” and Royal Commission stuff.

The following blog article on Pastor Frank Houston’s pedophile activities was written on 13 September 2012 and it has been updated regularly as new information becomes available.

Blog article of 13 September 2012 (updated 27 October 2017)

The pedophile Frank Houston was the founder of Hillsong

Pastor Frank Houston was the founder of Hillsong Church in Sydney, Australia in 1977. This was two years before his son Brian arrived in Australia.

Here are two advertisements for early Hillsong Church meetings in Eastern Suburbs, Sydney in 1977.

The Sydney Morning Herald 9 July 1977.

The Sydney Morning Herald Saturday 16 July 1977

Hillsong

Hillsong is by far Australia’s largest church numbering 15,000 in Australia. Its headquarters are in Baulkham Hills in Western Sydney.

It has Churches throughout the world in twenty locations. Hillsong claims 150,000 in its network world-wide in 2021. This is a very small number of adherents if viewed on a global basis.

Hillsong is like the small dog on the big street. Because of its strong cash-flow and music resources, it has made a lot of noise globally, but most people can tell Hillsong is completely dodgy and a money-cult.

Brian Houston 20

Pastor Frank Houston was the head of the New Zealand Assemblies of God (AOG) from 1965 to 1977, and a prominent leader in the Australian Assemblies of God denomination from the 1980s to 1990s.

By the time Frank Houston confessed to secret pedophile crimes at age 77 he was revered across the Australian and New Zealand Assemblies of God movements as a great holy pastor, Christian leader and a great evangelist.

The truth is he was a rotten secret pedophile all that time, for many decades, probably since his early teens.

The Assemblies of God (AOG)

The Assemblies of God (AOG) is a Protestant denomination which started in the early 20th century in America and has spread across the planet. Its emphasis is on the Holy Spirit and the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit, like faith, healing and speaking in tongues.

The Protestants

A Protestant denomination is a denomination (international church organisation) whose origins are in “Protesting” against the Church of Rome.

Protesting, often at the greatest risk to their lives, against the Roman Catholic Church’s errant doctrines, its power, its Popes, its Bishops, its mercenary Jesuits of old- and its domination and blood-letting and martyrdom of true believers throughout the world- for over 1700 years until modern times.

If you think I’m exaggerating then google “The Waldenses” who were Protestants the Church of Rome genocided in parts of France in the 16th century or “The Covenanters” who the Church of Rome hunted and wiped out in 17th century Scotland.

The Jesuit mercenaries and Papist rulers of England desecrated their bodies after death and threw their corpses on rubbish tips as a warning to a fearful populace.

These were brave men who gave their lives for the cause of Christ.

Unlike Frank Houston, who was a secret life-long pedophile and covert homosexual, whose coal-black dark secrets which weren’t exposed until the last years of his life.

Frank Houston’s confession to being a lifelong secret pedophile

A two-year investigation of pedophile allegations going back to the 1960s, ordered by his son, Pastor Brian Houston, at the time head of the Australian Assemblies of God, and conducted by a prominent Australian AOG clergy on the AOG national executive, Pastor John Lewis, found that the allegations were true.

Frank Houston was banned for life from ever ministering in the AOG in Australia and New Zealand in December 1999 aged 77. But he didn’t stop preaching and ministering and Brian and other AOG leaders allowed him free reign to preach and pray and prophecy over the unsuspecting. These are the crimes of Brian Houston, John Lewis and other top ACC and Hillsong leaders.

Death

Frank Houston’s life ended in shame in November 2004. He spent his last days contemplating his place in Eternity. The burdens of his dark secrets were troubling his mind until the end.

How would God treat him in the Hereafter? These were among many questions which plagued his dark and long-time fully corrupt mind as he faced death’s looming days. For from the evidence Frank Houston had been a pedophile since his early teens, a period of seventy years.

child abuse 21

I knew Frank Houston personally

This blog article is the first in a series of articles in which I will recall information, reflections and personal feelings on this gifted, strange and very tortured man, who I knew very well for two decades. Or at least I thought I did.

I worked closely with Frank Houston through the decade of the 1980s as a builder doing building fit-out and renovations for Christian Life Centre (CLC), Darlinghurst, as Hillsong was known in the early days, and as a lay leader.

I was a prominent and successful lay leader at Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst, with ten home fellowship groups under my care. I pioneered these groups in the challenging Inner City of Sydney. I attended CLC again for a few years in the mid to late 1990s. I was there when Pastor Frank Houston got stood down and the whole organisation changed its name from Christian Life Centre to Hillsong in 2000.

I should add that I was a strong Christian prior to first attending Hillsong in 1981. This may have kept me safe from allowing Frank Houston to do stuff like lay hands on me in prayer. A highly dangerous event in hindsight for anyone.

Frank Houston’s legacy

Pastor Brian Houston, and others like former co-head pastor of Hillsong City Campus, Pastor Jonathan Wilson, who is now pastoring in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, have tried to sanitise and re-invent Pastor Frank Houston’s life and legacy

with second wife

Jonathan Wilson, with second wife Dianne, in pastoring California. Dianne’s former husband Geoff is married to Jonathan Wilson’s daughter – a kind of fallen Pentecostal wife-swap.

Jonathan Wilson

Pastor Jonathan Wilson. Former Hillsong Senior Pastor. Likes pedophiles.

Pastor Brian Houston, and others like Pastor Jonathan Wilson, but has strong links with Brian still, have tried to sanitise and re-invent Pastor Frank Houston’s life and legacy.

Jonathan Wilson told media at Frank Houston’s funeral in November 2012 that he regarded Frank as a friend. So Jonathan Wilson likes a lifelong secret child rapist parading as a Christian clergy as his friend. 

The reality is that no amount of spin and re-invention can remove the dark black stains of the seven decades long trail of pedophile, masked homosexual, homosexual and homoerotic activity that so-called “Pastor” Frank Houston, a complete fallen evil deviate, engaged in.

Pastor Brian Houston

Pastor Brian Houston. Growing fat while while he hangs out the victims of his dad’s abuse to dry. “Sorry victims of dad’s abuse, I’m a leading Christian pastor, but you’re on your own. Have a good life. Sorry again- Haha ha ha” – by the way boy victim AHA, it was your own fault you were sexually abused by my father Frank – you tempted him. This is what Brian told the AHA.

The seventeen boy and young teen known victims

In all I have verified seventeen or more victims of Pastor Frank Houston’s child and teen sex abuse.

Everyone closely associated with this matter senses there are a lot more victims out there.

From the evidence there are over 400 boy, pre-teen and teen victims. Maybe over 1000. Maybe 1000s.

Many will not remember the incidents due to psychological defence mechanisms because of the trauma of the sexual abuse event(s).

Plus there would be, from the evidence, 1000s of male victims of masked homosexual and pedophile abuse.

Frank Houston: “I was very active as a pedophile in the 1960s and 1970s.”

Pastor Frank Houston after his confession to pedophilia said to his son Brian, “I was very active as a pedophile at that time”. He was referring to the period from 1960 to 1975, when he was in his 40s to 50s when all the known 12 boy and 2 teen victims were sexually abused by him.

Pastor Frank Houston was doing pedophile activities all his life

I believe Pastor Frank Houston was doing pedophile activities all his life from his early teens.

He got kicked out of the New Zealand Salvation Army in the 1950s. He was a Captain. I believe it was for pedophilia.

Does anyone have any evidence on this? Can anyone talk to the New Zealand Salvation Army?

Frank Houston was a Salvation Army Captain in Auckland, New Zealand.

It was so long ago and I doubt if Salvation Army records about his dismissal accurately reflected what transpired, if they still exist, which is unlikely.

11 July 2020

I’ve been writing for many years that I believe Frank Houston sexually abused boys in the New Zealand Salvation Army from 1942. Frank Houston was a captain in the New Zealand Salvation Army in the 1940s. He was kicked out of that movement. I believe the reason was because of complaints of child sexual abuse.

The pedophile Frank Houston in one of his early disguises as a Salvation Army Captain in Auckland New Zealand in the 1940s to early 1950s.

David Fisher of the New Zealand Herald confirmed my allegations in an article in the New Zealand Herald today (11 July 2020):

“The Herald has confirmed that fresh allegations of abuse by the AOG’s former leading light, Pastor Frank Houston, have been provided to the Royal Commission.

One allegation, that he sexually abused a child between 1945-1948 while helping run a Salvation Army children’s home in Temuka, opens up the span of Houston’s alleged predatory behaviour to cover decades.”

What organisation except Hillsong would still love its pedophile founder?

Pastor Frank Houston was a pedophile who used his Christian pastor’s ministry as a disguise and camouflage to gain the confidence and trust of innocent believing Christian families so he could access their children undetected for the purposes of sexually abusing them.

Pastor Frank Houston was never genuine in anything he did. He mocked us all. How could a man be a genuine Christian pastor when he was secretly a life-long hardened criminal pedophile? Its not possible.

Frank Houston Boy victim AHA

The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse on 7 October 2014 at a Hearing in Sydney revealed a witness AHA, who was abused in the Sydney suburb of Coogee when he was an innocent little boy aged 7 to 12 years old, in the late 1960s and 1970s.

Boy victim AHA was brave enough to testify anonymously in person.

It made me cry.

It was real bad stuff indeed.

It made me very angry, particularly since Pastor Brian Houston, the son of Pastor Frank Houston, like Pilate in the Bible who washed his hands of responsibility for Jesus prior to his death, has washed his hands of responsibility to help and care for the boy and teen victims of his dad’s abuse, who are now in their 50s and early 60s.

If you go to my blog articles starting on Tuesday 7 October 2014, you’ll find all the horrific details of Pastor Frank Houston’s abuse of victim AHA including genitalia fondling, digital anal penetration, masturbation of the victim as he reached early puberty, and Frank Houston using and getting the victim to pleasure him over a period of five years.

My source is AHA’s testimony on Day One of the Royal Commission’s examination of Hillsong, where AHA spoke for most of the day.

Its tragic, graphic, sordid, horrific and completely culpable by Hillsong, the Australian AOG and Pastor Brian Houston.

Pastor Brian Houston has tried for 14 years to bury his father sexual abuse of children, sanitise it, and try to make it go away, but like a Frankenstein monster it has jumped from the grave and is now attacking and tormenting Pastor Brian Houston, his supporters and the whole Houston clan of three generations.

Dah…“What we didn’t do is report it to police.” Brian Houston, son of Hillsong founder Frank Houston, is surrounded by media following his 2014 appearance at a Royal Commission into child abuse.

Pastor Brian Houston had tried for 14 years to bury his father Frank’s sexual abuse of children, to sanitise it, and to try to make it go away, but like a Frankenstein monster it has jumped from the grave and is now attacking and tormenting Pastor Brian Houston, his supporters and the whole Houston clan of three generations.

Frank Houston has long departed but the corruption lives on in the errant and corrupt behaviour of his offspring, particularly in the life and deeds of Pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston, the current Head of Hillsong mega-church.

Rev William Frank...enstein Hosuton, molester of little boys. The most corrupt Pentecostal priest since the day of Pentecost.

The Seventeen Known Boy and Young Teen Victims

The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse also mentioned six other little boy victims of Pastor Frank Houston in New Zealand in the 1960s. But there are many more.

I have been writing since September 2012 that there were six boy victims of Frank Houston in Lower Hutt, New Zealand in the 1960s.

Here is my count of child sex abuse victims of Frank Houston:

I have evidence of 17 or more boy and male teen victims. 

I have evidence of two teen victims, Peter Fowler, who went public in the 1970s with the encouragement of the now deceased prophet Pastor Philip Powell and teen victim ANZ1 (my code-name) who suicided as a direct result of Frank Houston’s sexual abuse.

From the testimony of the boy victims and the circumstantial evidence, I believe there were over four hundred victims of Frank Houston’s abuse. He confessed to Brian Houston, his son, in circa 1999, that he was very active as a pedophile, particularly in the 1960s and 1970s.

Here are the boy victims aged 7 to 12, and one teenager aged 15 years old:

1. Six 10 year old boys Pastor Frank Houston molested while Head Pastor of Lower Hutt Assemblies of God (AOG), Wellington, New Zealand in the 1960s, while at the same time, General Superintendent of the New Zealand AOG (from 1965 to 1977).

2. Sydney boy victim AHA, as above revealed on Day One of Hillsong’s time at the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse on 7 October 2014.

This is a particularly sordid case of repeated child sexual abuse of a little 7 year old boy by Pastor Frank Houston which continued for 5 years.  I have covered this case in detail in my blogs on the Royal Commission starting on the 7 October 2014.

3. One 15 year old boy, Peter Fowler, in the Lower Hutt AOG, New Zealand. The Lower Hutt AOG paid out Peter, but it wasn’t much money.

4. At least 4 boy victims at Assemblies of God Church camps in South Australia in the early 1970s. See my blogs on victim SA1 (my code name for him) dated 16 and 17 October 2014. SA1 was aged 11 years old at the tie of the abuse.

5. One young man in Auckland, New Zealand, ANZ1 (my code-name) who suicided as a result of the abuse. He was in his late teens.

I sense there are a lot more New Zealand boy, pre-teen and teen male victims.

7. One boy aged 8 years old, in a suburb near Tawa, Wellington, New Zealand. My code name for him is WNZ1. The abuse was very similar to the Royal Commission victim AHA.

WNZ1 believes there were more boy abuse victims in his suburb. See my blogs date 18 and 19 October 2014.

8. Frank sexually abused a child between 1945-1948 while helping run a Salvation Army children’s home in Temuka.

9. In the mid-1970s, a young man in Palmerston North told a visiting pastor he had been sexually assaulted by Frank Houston.

10. Boy victims in Waikato area of New Zealand in the 1960s. Frank was doing crusades often amongst Maoris. “Houston stayed overnight, and then descended on the boys after dark to sexually assault them in their childhood beds.” Untold boy and teen victims. Impossible to know how many.

TOTAL: 17 and many more victims. 400 plus boy and teen victims based on the evidence.

Boy victim SA1 from Adelaide South Australia

One of the victims of Pastor Frank Houston’s child sexual abuse at Kleimzeg Assemblies of God camps in South Australia in the early 1970s, SA1, contacted me after reading articles about Pastor Frank Houston on this blog site. He shared there were several other victims of Pastor Frank Houston’s pedophile abuse at these camps.

The epicentre of Frank Houston’s pedophile activities at these South Australian camps was the boy’s toilet block.  

The abuse involved the fondling of little boys genitalia and masturbation in the toilet block and bunk room. Pastor Frank Houston was very confident, blazen, perverse and tactile.

Yes Pastor Frank Houston. The greatest and most prominent AOG Pastor in Australia and New Zealand from 1970s to 1998, when the truth of his duality emerged.

Frank Houston was a secretive, manipulative, sordid, dishonest and heartless criminal pedophile for 70 years from the 1930s until his death in 2004. 

Pastor Brian Houston’s lies about the number of victims continues to this day

The official line of Hillsong Church and Pastor Brian Houston was that his father, Pastor William Francis “Frank” Houston only abused one boy in New Zealand 40 years ago.

This is the line that they held from the late 1990s to the Royal Commission in October 2014.

This is the view that was on their web-site for over a decade. When I was researching articles I wrote about Frank Houston and his pedophile activities in 2012, Hillsong’s website and all the accounts by Pastor Brian Houston and Hillsong media reflected this great lie.

This is the view they have told the Sydney Morning Herald and other newspapers.

This view is totally inaccurate and a blatant lie by Brian Houston.

It emerged at the Royal Commission that Pastor Brian Houston has known that this official view was untrue and a lie all this time.

Folks we’ve been all been deceived.

What is still lacking from Frank’s son, Pastor Brian Houston and the Hillsong Movement, which Brian controls, is any real degree of honesty and openness about Frank Houston.

For example, why won’t Brian and the AOG release the official AOG report on Frank Houston’s pedophile activities?

Why didn’t Brian admit his father did numerous pedophile and homosexual acts, and not just one, like Brian portrayed for 14 years, until the Royal Commission exposed his lies? Why do Brian lie to us all? How can Brian lie like this and be a prominent Christian pastor?

Why is Brian Houston still lying about the number of victims telling Sydney’s channel nine reporter Leila McKinnon earlier this year when she asked how many victims Brian believes there are now, Brian hesitantly replied “six”. This is despite Brian knowing about at least 8 victims in 1999 and at least 9 victims in 2004. Why lie Brian? Who is the Father of Lies?

Was Brian Houston sexually abused by his rampant pedophile father Frank?

And the question lingers, was Pastor Brian Houston himself, and his brother Graeme, sexually abused by their father Frank?

Maybe that’s too personal for Brian to admit, if anything occurred.

Or maybe he can’t remember.

These dark memories are normally suppressed and buried by the defence mechanisms of the human psyche.

Brian’s brother Graeme has refused to attend church since his teens. Why?

Further, were Brian and Graeme aware of the accusations against his father while he was a lad?

The pre-adolescent little boys Pastor Frank Houston sexually abused in Lower Hutt were Brian and Graeme’s age at the time.

Brian even stayed with his dad at AHA’s family home in Coogee, while his father lay on top of victim AHA all night and abused him for the week of their stay on one of the many visits. One can see why pedophile Frank Houston liked to go to Sydney and stay at AHA’s parent’s house. Disgusting.

The pedophile Frank Houston’s overseas “evangelistic” trips overseas were really sex holidays away from his wife and people who he was accountable to.

Details of boy victim AHA’s sexual abuse

While Pastor Frank Houston lay on top of little 7 year old AHA, who is now 52, the skinny spider-like Pastor Frank Houston sexually molested him. He fondled his genitals, he fondled his little thighs and bottom, and he digitally penetrated him. AHA shared on Tuesday 7 October 2014 at the Royal Commission that he froze with fear.

Boy victim AHA wondered, why was this hero of the faith, a godly man who my mum and dad loved, doing this to me?

Victim AHA lay frozen with fear as Frank Houston, the pariah, lay on top of him all night. The cats howled, the night birds cackled as the do in Australia, the dogs barked down the street and the garbos rattled their bins, and all this time through those long chill hours, Pastor Frank Houston lay on top of AHA doing awful creepy very perverse things to AHA.

If you think I’m being too graphic, this is what AHA said at the Royal Commission. These are the facts the Royal Commission’s lawyer, Simeon Beckett, read out. These are the facts that AHA read out from his witness statement on Tuesday 7 October 2014 at the Royal Commission into Child Abuse in Sydney.

You can read AHA’s testimony at the Commission on http://www.childabuseroyalcommission.gov.au

Pastor Brian Houston accused victim AHA of tempting his dad and being the cause of all the trouble for his dad

It is interesting to note that victim AHA, who spoke anonymously at the Royal Commission, stated that Pastor Brian Houston accused victim AHA of tempting his dad and being the cause of all the trouble for his dad.

Pastor Brian Houston has denied this. I believe victim AHA because he sounded very honest and very coherent. Pastor Brian Houston hasn’t been honest about all this stuff for over 14 years.

The Royal Commission has also revealed how Hillsong, the AOG and Pastor Brian Houston have been heartless towards child abuse victims of Pastor Frank Houston and other AOG Pastor and leader pedophiles.

If you read my blogs on 7 to 10 October you’ll get drift.

Pastor Brian Houston the head pastor of Hillsong mega-church, a very wealthy “church” organisation, has refused to help the boy and young teen victims in any way

Brian at the Royal Commission

At the Royal Commission on 9 October, when Pastor Brian Houston was the star witness, he wiggled and swirmed in the hot seat of the witness box. Then he straight out said they won’t help the victims in any way. The reasons are outlined in my blog articles on this site of 9 and 10 October 2104.

Peter Laughton’s homosexual affair with Frank Houston

Since Peter Laughton, Pastor Frank Houston’s young worship leader, went public in 2007 about Frank’s abuse of him in the early 1980s, the Houston family have taken the line that Peter Laughton was a consenting male with their father Frank. In his early 20s at the time of his abuse in the early 1980s, Peter was over the age of consent which is 18 in Australia for consenting homosexual acts.

But is it ok before God for the most prominent AOG clergy in Australia and New Zealand, aged 58, to indulge in numerous sordid homosexual acts with his young worship leader?

At the time the homosexual liaison started Pastor Frank Houston was 58 and Peter was 20.

I fail to see how the Houston’s can dismiss this series of incidents with Peter Lawton so readily.

Pastor Frank Houston was attracted to boys, adolescent boys and men in their 20s. His sexual orientation was young and male.

Pastor Frank Houston. Total deviate and con-artist.

Pastor Frank Houston. Total deviate and con-artist.

Pastor Frank Houston was attracted to boys, adolescent boys and men in their 20s. His sexual orientation was young and male.

Pastor Frank Houston was an active secret pedophile and homosexual particularly from the 1960s to the 1980s.

By 1990 he was 68 and his homosexual and pedophile libido seemed to have dropped off. I haven’t found any pedophile dirty old man Houston victims.

A reader of this site commented recently that he knew Frank Houston in the 1950s at Ellerslie AOG in Auckland, New Zealand. He wrote in a comment on this site that Pastor Frank Houston had fixation about male swimmers. There were some NZ Olympic swimmers training. A young Pastor Frank Houston used to go down to the local swimming pool to watch them training and perve on them.

If you knew Pastor Frank Houston at this time and you know of pedophile incidents could you please contact me. I suspect his pedophile activities started earlier than Lower Hutt AOG.

Frank Houston was sexually abused by his father Frank

At the Royal Commission, Pastor Brian Houston told the Commission that his dad had been abused by his father, also Frank. This is no secret because Pastor Frank use to share about this from the pulpit at Christian Life Centre in the 1980s.

Pastor Frank Houston openly shared how his dad was very mean to him and his mum. That his dad had an affair with the woman next door and other bad stuff. The ABC of Psychology says that people who were sexually abused as children often go on to sexually abuse children when they are older/ become adults. That’s a big subject.

Peter Laughton spoke to the Sydney Morning Herald in 2007

If you google “Frank Houston” or “Frank Houston abuse” you’ll find plenty of transcript of detailed sordid accounts of Frank Houston’s sexual activities with Peter Laughton.

Peter has given interviews to the Sydney Morning Herald.

In these interviews Peter speaks honestly and candidly about the homo-erotic activities Frank Houston led him to do. It’s interesting yet very sad reading.

Please bear in mind that Frank Houston was aged 58, and the most prominent AOG clergy at the time, and he was abusing a vulnerable and needy young man aged 20 who was his Church worship leader. Heavy stuff indeed.

The investigation and being caught

The release of the official AOG Report on Frank Houston’s pedophile activities is a document which would be helpful to the victims of Frank Houston’s pedophile activities. What is more important? Protecting Frank Houston’s legacy and reputation, the Houston name and Hillsong’s reputation, or allowing some healing and closure, not only to Frank’s numerous pedophile victims, but also to the countless others who were part of Christian Life Centre and Hillsong in the early days and who were deeply hurt and shattered by revelations of Frank’s secret activities.

Frank’s pedophile activities were not destined to remain a secret to his grave. By the late 90s the chorus of complaints was to become deafening. The AOG, and in particular, the then National Chief Executive Pastor Brian Houston, his son, were forced to investigate and do something about it.

Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst the second name for Hillsong

I personally knew Peter Laughton at Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst.

Peter was very talented singer, song-writer and composer. A nice guy. Sensitive. Artistic.

No one had any idea that Frank Houston aged 58 and a revered pastor and his worship leader Peter Laughton age 20 were involved in a four year homosexual affair from 1980 to 1984.

Extraordinary talent at early Hillsong, called CLC Darlinghurst

In those days Frank had gathered together some extraordinary musical talent.

Frank had recruited Pastor David Johnston from Los Angeles to found international Institute of Creative Ministries (IICM), a music, singing and dance Ministries School. David worked at Wesley College for decades since these times. David is a very talented pastor, violinist, composer and worship leader.

Trevor King was also there. Trevor now lives in Auckland,  New Zealand. Trevor is very talented on the piano and led the band and was the Music Pastor.

Geoff Bullock is another muso who owes his success to the Houstons. Unfortunately Geoff’s personal life became a train-wreck when his marriage fell over and his ministry has never recovered to the heights of his success under the Houstons. Particularly under Pastor Brian Houston.

Pastor Brian Houston is truly a king-maker. So much talent. So many scandals.

Pastor Frank Houston with Hazel, his faithful and supportive wife

Pastor Frank Houston with Hazel, his faithful, enabling and supportive wife- who knew he was molesting little boys for many decades. Hazel knew he was a pedophile since the 1940s.

Peter Laughton was looking for father love

Peter Laughton is a really nice guy.

Outgoing, talented and sensitive.

In Frank, Peter has said that he was looking for father love. The kind of love Frank gave him was secretive, self-gratifying and impure.

The pedophile is secretive and motivated by deep impure needs and impulses 

The pedophile is secretive and motivated by deep impure needs and impulses that they find impossible to control. Their victims are really just objects of their desire. There is no care or love towards their victims. For the pedophile it is “all about me”.

I wrote another 13 articles, which are on this blog-site, on this subject of Pastor Frank Houston from 13 September 2012.

My memories of the man and what I experienced during the 1980s and 1990s while attending Hillsong Church.

I have written over 200 other articles on Hillsong and the Royal Commission.

Frank Houston is the worst Pentecostal Pastor in the history of the planet.

I have come to the conclusion that Pastor Frank Houston is the worst Pentecostal Pastor in the history of the planet.

To do what Frank Houston did to little boys and teens all his lifetime, while maintaining the front of a holy man of God is the very gravest of sins known to mortal man.

Since I wrote this article in September 2012, and since the Royal Commission examined the Houstons and Hillsong, Simeon Beckett, the Royal Commission barrister, publicly recommended in December 2014 that Pastor Brian Houston be criminally charged by the NSW Police for not reporting and for sheltering a pedophile, his old life-long pedophile father, Pastor Frank Houston, the  founder of the Hillsong organisation.

In October 2015 the Royal Commission recommended Brian Houston for prosecution in its Findings.

The Hillsong Cult

Hillsong are like the small dog on a big street. Hillsong bark far louder than their size.

Hillsong cult congregants only comprise 150,000 worldwide.

Compare this to another Christian cult the Jehovah’s Witnesses who comprise 8.4 million worldwide and are in decline. It is inevitable that the Hillsong cult will be in decline at some stage.

The largest Christian cult in the world, The Mormons, number 16.6 million worldwide.

The Roman Catholic Church church worldwide numbers 1.2 billion.

There are between 800 million and 1 billion Protestants worldwide.

Hillsong’s 150,000 members comprise a minute fraction of worldwide Protestants. (0.002 per cent).

So are Hillsong’s numbers staggering? Hardly.

Hillsong’s great noise and influence is solely in their domination of Pentecostal Christian music.

Protestantism by Country (Wikipedia)

“There are between 800 million and 1 billion Protestants world-wide, among approximately 2.5 billion Christians. In 2010, a total of more than 800 million included 300 million in Sub-Saharan Africa, 260 million in the Americas, 140 million in Asia-Pacific region, 100 million in Europe and 2 million in Middle East-North Africa. Protestants account for nearly forty percent of Christians worldwide and more than one tenth of the total human population. Various estimates put the percentage of Protestants in relation to the total number of the world’s Christians at 33%, 36%, 36.7%, and 40%, while in relation to the world’s population at 11.6% and 13%.”

And Frank admitted to pedophilia to his son Brian 1999. Frank was a self-confessed lifelong secret pedophile, not just accused of being a pedophile.

The BBC’s Hillsong documentary makes for uncomfortable (but important) viewing

 By Tim Bechervaise 26 July 2021

With their size, scale and recent scandals, it’s no surpise that the BBC chose to investigate Hillsong Church, says Tim Bechervaise

p09q1cgq

The numbers are mind-boggling.

Hillsong Church is based in 28 countries, across all continents except Antarctica. Hillsong Music has sold 55 million albums, and its songs account for 6.1 billion streaming minutes per year. Meanwhile, Hillsong Church’s annual income is $150m per year.

It is little wonder that the BBC decided to commission a documentary called Hillsong Church: God Goes Viral looking at its success – and its secrets. While the documentary does profile the genuine transformation that people have experienced through the church, this is ultimately overshadowed by its apparent shortcomings.

MEGACHURCHES, MONEY AND MORAL FAILURES

The documentary – directed, filmed and produced by Nick Aldridge, who in an early question admits that he isn’t a Christian – darts around the globe speaking to Hillsong leaders, including global senior pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston.

It also features people who have left the church, and this frames the criticisms and failings that many will be familiar with. It starts with the oft-levelled accusation that the church is preoccupied with numbers, money and the lavish lifestyles of its leaders. Brian Houston is even accused of paying someone $50,000 to learn how to be more like an American megachurch – a claim he strenuously denies.

I CANNOT IMAGINE THE PRESSURES THAT ACCOMPANY LEADING A CHURCH OF THAT SCALE OR PROFILE

It then moves onto Frank Houston and Carl Lentz. The former, Brian’s late father, headed up Assemblies of God in New Zealand until 1971 (Hillsong Church grew out of Assemblies of God in Australia). Frank Houston is accused of child sexual abuse, and Brian is under investigation for not reporting to the police what he knew of his father’s behaviour. The latter is Carl Lentz, who was sacked as pastor of Hillsong NYC in 2020 for marriage infidelity.

WHERE IS THE CARE?

In his first interview since news of Lentz’s behaviour broke, Brian Houston admitted the leader was “narcissistic”, adding that: “I’ve had concerns and many conversations over the years with Carl.” It begs the question: Given the standard required of Christian leaders, why wasn’t action taken earlier? It also speaks into a larger question posed by the documentary: Are people in the church getting the care and discipleship they need, from volunteers to senior leaders. An interviewee says that “Hillsong thrives on volunteers”, but an accusation is made that they can be overworked and underappreciated (although this would probably be echoed by all church volunteers everywhere!)

Meanwhile, the documentary features the testimony of Elizabeth Hernandez, who was sexually assaulted twice while in the military. She went on to rediscover her childhood faith through Hillsong, and has clearly been impacted by the church. Her willingness to forgive those who attacked her is immensely powerful. However, there’s always the sense that deep questions lie unresolved – which Aldridge seems to sense. The programme closes by saying that Elizabeth has since left the church. No reason is given.

In one sequence, the wife of someone abused by Frank Houston looks on in disbelief as Bobbie Houston tactlessly shares before an audience how a manicure, pedicure and massage helped alleviate the stress of the accusations facing her husband. It doesn’t look good, and perhaps reflects a church sometimes out of touch with the realities of ordinary people’s lives.

Early on, the documentary features a slightly awkward moment when Aldridge asks a pastor: “What’s important about praying and believing?” After a long silence, the pastor begins to respond, but the answer is unsatisfactory. He has admittedly been put on the spot, but in some ways it felt symptomatic of a church that maybe doesn’t engage enough with the difficult questions of faith, theology and life. In 2019, former Hillsong Church worship leader, Marty Sampson, announced that he was “genuinely losing his faith”, claiming that people weren’t talking about the difficult questions.

PRAISES AND PRAYER POINTS

This isn’t to detract from all of the good about Hillsong Church. The documentary doesn’t hide this, although more attention could certainly have been given to two areas in particular. The first is the broad range of initiatives that the church supports, including work with the elderly, refugees and charities such as the A21 campaign, founded by Hillsong member Christine Caine. The second is Hillsong Music, which was barely explored. This was a surprising and disappointing oversight, given that its music is enjoyed and used by millions globally.

Secular documentaries on Christianity often have a sceptical bent, but they can be invaluable for exposing deficiencies and sounding warnings. Hillsong Church: God Goes Viral certainly does this – not just for Hillsong, or other megachurches, but all churches. Watching it can be an instructive exercise for all of us. As a church leader myself, I felt deeply challenged.

Hillsong Church’s high profile makes them an easy target for criticism. Clearly there are urgent issues that need addressing, but we must remember that, regardless of our church affiliation, they’re also family. Hillsong Church is here to stay, and I cannot imagine the pressures that accompany leading a church of that scale or profile. And given their global prominence, they have an influence that can truly be instrumental for the growth of God’s kingdom. They need our support and prayers.

Note of 24 August 2016

Pastor Pat Mesiti is still a Hillsong Global Church pastor and still a C3 Global Church pastor, despite what Pat Mesiti has done as described in all that follows in this article.

GAY LORD POPE BRAIN HOUSTON OF HELL666$$$ONG ON AUSTRALIAN RUGBY LEGEND ISRAEL FOLAU’S RECENT PREACHING ON GAYS AND SINNERS AND HELL: “Yet, as Christians, it is equally important to look at ourselves and our own failings and imperfections. If you look at the list of sins that Izzy listed there’s not too many people he’s left out, including Christians. There isn’t a person on earth who hasn’t told a lie or put something before God (idolatry)”

This article is a chronological account of Pat Mesiti’s amoral life from 2016 back to the late 1990s. A kind of Pat Mesiti diary of dysfunction.

I am not judging Pat Mesiti for what he has done in the sense that “we’re all sinners”, as “Pastor” Brian Houston head pastor of Hillsong Global Church likes to say to rationalise every sin under God’s fair earth going on at Hillsong Global Churches all over the world.

What I am judging is what Pat Mesiti has done while pretending to be a Christian pastor.

What Pat Mesiti has done is reflective of “Pastor” Brian Houston’s and “Doctor Phil” Pringle’s amoral corrupt approach to being a Christian pastor, and what they allow to go on in their pastors’ lives.

It is also reflective of the father of Brian and the spiritual father of Phil and Pat, “Pastor” Frank Houston.

That is Pastor Frank Houston the founder of Hillsong Church Global who was for seven decades a secret homosexual and pedophile.

“Pastor” Brian Houston pictured with his child rapist father Frank Houston, who Brian protected from the police from when Frank confessed to when he died five years later in 2004.

Pat Mesiti’s secret sex holidays behind his second wife Andrea’s back

Brian’s father, Pastor Frank Houston was a lifelong secret pedophile who sexually abused hundreds of little boys in his lifetime in Australia and New Zealand and in other parts of the world where he went for “evangelism” while pretending to be a Christian pastor.

Like Pat Mesiti, Frank Houston’s evangelistic travels were really secret sex holidays.

In Pat Mesiti’s evangelistic travels the objects of his desire were any available Christian young ladies and prostitutes.

In Frank Houston’s evangelistic travels the objects of his desire were any available little boys aged 7-12 from Christian families.

If little boys weren’t available he’d opt for male teens or older males.

I believe he also went and procured “rent boys”- underage male prostitutes. I have some evidence of this from the 1980s but no definite proof. However it is almost certain he did.

I do have evidence of the sexual abuse by Frank Houston of 12 little boys and 2 teens in the 1960s and 1970s. I have evidence that Frank was active as a pedophile from the 1930s until his death in 2004.

Pat Mesiti has used the Christian ministry to access young women to sexually abuse them. Like his second wife Andrea who was a young Hillsong worship leader in the late 1990s who “Pastor” Pat seduced and bedded while married to his first wife.

“Pastor” Pat Mesiti is a close friend of “Pastor” Brian Houston and Brian has protected Pat.

Pastor Pat Mesiti is still a Hillsong mega-church pastor and still a C3 Church pastor, despite what Pat Mesiti has done in all that follows in this article which includes being a long-time self-confessed sex addict, committing adultery against both his first and second wife, secretly visiting prostitutes while a famous Hillsong Youth Alive evangelist, using his Hillsong credit card to procure prostitutes and physical domestic violence against his second wife Andrea who has since divorced him in 2016.

“A former Hillsong preacher turned motivational speaker believes he is “more qualified” to help people after domestic violence charges against him were dismissed because he was suffering depression.

Pat Mesiti, 56. was charged after grabbing his now ex-wife Andrea by the neck during an argument over a party at their family home on Glenhaven on New Years Eve last year.

Parramatta Local Court heard Mesiti, who pleaded guilty to assault, was struggling with the separation from his second wife and was taking anti-depressants.

Magistrate Gary Still dismissed the charge for mental health reasons and ordered Mesiti to follow a treatment plan a set out by his doctor.

Outside court, a repentant Mesiti said he had learnt a lot in the past three months. “I will keep doing what I am doing and try to help people”.

Former preacher “Pastor” Pasquale “Pat” Mesiti, 56, appeared in Parramatta local court today Monday 29 February 2016 and admitted physically assaulting his second wife Andrea on New Year’s Eve. 

On New Years Eve 2015 Pat Mesiti was charged by the NSW North-West Police with bashing his wife.

Today he was convicted at Parramatta Court Sydney with one count of common assault for actual physical assault on his second wife Andrea- “in a fit of rage while heavily intoxicated”. He awaits sentencing.

Self-help guru admits NYE attack on wife

A former Hillsong preacher arrived on his estranged wife’s doorstep drunk and grabbed her “by the neck” after learning she had green-lit a New Year’s Eve party at their home, court documents reveal.

Pat “Pasquale” Mesiti pleaded guilty to one count of common assault on Monday, two months after the attack on his wife Andrea in her northwest Sydney home.

Prosecutors have agreed to drop a more serious charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

A fact sheet tendered in Parramatta Local Court states Mesiti and his wife have been married for 13 years but are now in the final stages of divorce, having separated last April.

Mesiti moved out of the family home in Glenhaven the following month.

The former evangelical preacher, who now lives in Kellyville Ridge in Sydney’s Hills district, has penned a number of self-help books including Staying Together Without Falling Apart, billed as a definitive guide to helping men and women “thrive together in a modern day relationship”.

Documents tendered in Parramatta Local Court suggest the 56-year-old earns $2500 a week on the public speaking circuit.

The documents state Mesiti and his wife were both out separately with friends on December 31 last year when Mesiti saw photos posted on Facebook by a young female relative, showing a party in full swing at the Glenhaven house.

He immediately began calling and texting Mrs Mesiti, warning her he was calling police.

“After arriving home, the accused, being intoxicated, has begun arguing with all the partygoers including (the young relative), demanding them all to get out,” the documents state.

“About 10pm the victim has arrived at the home before walking down the driveway and into the front door.”

After a heated verbal argument during which Mrs Mesiti defended allowing the party, Mesiti grabbed his wife by the neck.

“A physical altercation has ensued during which the victim has felt an impact to the right side of her head,” the documents state.

Police arrived as Mrs Mesiti and the young relative were leaving in tears.

Mesiti will remain out on bail until his sentencing next month but must comply with a 12-month apprehended violence order, which bars him from assaulting or stalking Mrs Mesiti or approaching her within 12 hours of consuming alcohol.

“In a nutshell, that means that you cannot do anything that makes her fear for her safety,” Magistrate Karen Stafford told Mesiti on Monday.

“If you have a glass of wine with dinner at 7pm at night, you cannot go and see her until 7am the next morning.”

MULTIPLE ADULTERIES WHILE A FAMOUS HILLSONG YOUTH EVANGELIST AND HILLSONG PASTOR

Sydney Morning Herald

Disgraced evangelist in hiding after being stripped of licence

Kelly Burke, Religious Affairs Writer

SMH, Wednesday, 27 March 2002, Page 8

NEWS AND FEATURES

He was one of Australia’s most prominent and internationally lauded evangelists, a champion of Christian youth and a motivational speaker who convinced thousands that the pursuit of money and fame was a godly business. Now Pat Mesiti is in disgrace and in hiding, sacked as a National Director of the Australian Christian Churches and stripped of his licence to minister.

Gone is the Pat Mesiti Ministries signage that distinguished the entrance of his Castle Hill mansion. But the 4000-strong congregation of the Assemblies of God church Hillsong, where Mr Mesiti is based, remains in the dark. According to Assemblies of God (AOG) documents obtained by the Herald Mr Mesiti was sacked after allegations of sexual misconduct. It is understood the allegations were not of a criminal nature.

“We are aware that the above information may be a surprise and shock to some of you and therefore we have deliberately chosen to restrict this letter to our ordained and probationary ministers”, the confidential document said.” We cannot see any reason for this to be announced to your church or further afield”.

The National President of the AOG, Brian Houston, who is also Hillsong’s Senior Pastor, denied there was a cover-up. “This whole area of sex abuse and predatory behaviour is devastating … but I believe we have tried to deal with this issue with integrity and honesty”, said Mr Houston, speaking from Los Angeles. But the scandal may prove devastating on more than one front for the church, which has spent two years rebranding itself as Australian Christian Churches and persuading other less powerful pentecostal denominations to climb on board.

In 2000 Mr Houston was forced to sack his father, Frank, after he confessed to what the AOG Church’s National Executive has described as serious moral failure while he was an AOG minister in New Zealand. Mr Houston senior was NSWs most senior AOG figure and the man credited with converting the champion jockey Darren Beadman, who later trained as an AOG pastor.

The AOGs National Executive Vice-President, John Lewis, conducted the Frank Houston investigation at the invitation of his son.

Mr Lewis said the offences were so serious that Mr Houston senior, now in his early 80s, was not even given the option of quietly retiring. The Herald has been contacted by one of Mr Houstons alleged victims, who is now considering legal action against the church.

Brian Houston said that of the AOGs 2000 Australian ministers, no more than five in any year were exposed and disciplined for sexual misconduct. He went on to defend the former AOG New Zealand General Superintendent Jim Williams, who serves as a pastor in Brisbane but whose licence in New Zealand was permanently revoked for sexual misconduct. Mr Mesiti is undergoing what the church terms a three-year restoration process.

Pat Mesiti now attends C3

In his glory days Pat Mesiti was a National Director of Australian Christian Churches.

My comments:

What the Sydney Morning Herald article didn’t know was that the adultery was with prostitutes while Pat Mesiti was a very famous Hillsong Youth pastor. Pat Mesiti was preaching to thousands of innocent young people, including my children at times, and after the services going down to Darlinghurst to have sex with prostitutes. It is unknown whether the prostitutes were male or female or underaged. Pat Mesiti also used Hillsong credit cards to pay for some of these services. That is how he got caught. Unauthorised use of Hillsong credit cards.

Since Pastor Brian Houston called Pat Mesiti’s adultery with prostitutes ‘serious moral failure’ and Brian, as Superintendent of the ACC movement, instructed by letter all the Australian Christian churches not to tell their congregations about it, and just as he called his old life-long pedophile dad Frank’s pedophilia ‘serious moral failure’, and instructed all the Australian Christian churches by letter not to tell their congregations about it, I feel it is my duty to tell everyone the facts of both of these cases of spiritual fornication, adultery, homosexuality and pedophilia.

It is unknown to me if Pat Mesiti committed pedophilia with underage boy or girl prostitutes or with any other children. Pat Mesiti needs to clarify what he did and with whom. The comments box at the bottom of this article is available for Pat to clarify these questions.

THE RESTORATION

C3 Watch:

Phil Pringle ‘Restoring’ Pat Mesiti As A Church Pastor

Pat Mesiti was, in Pastor Phil Pringles words, re-instated as a preacher on Sunday 19 February 2006 and now serves God with a new awareness and humility.

In the transcript below, Phil Pringle shares that Brian Houston and he “are good friends” and that Phil Pringle has known Mesiti “forever”.

Was Pat Mesiti’s Christian character restored?

Hillsong and C3 seem to think so.

Pat Mesiti said that when he came out of this restoration process he believed, “in the message of prosperity more now than I ever did”.

Many are cynical about this “message of prosperity” that Mesiti got from this process from both Hillsong and C3.

Below is a transcript of Pat Mesiti’s restoration.

Pat Mesiti’s restoration

Christian City Church, Oxford Falls 6pm service, Sunday February 19, 2006

Doctor Phil Pringle

“Doctor Phil” Pringle

Phil Pringle:

“I know a lot of you were not in this morning’s service…and I need your attention ….I need your full attention people…I need you to be looking this way ..and listening….thank you very much.

Because this morning I made an announcement …and in last night’s service..that I need to make again and .. it’s a great announcement …a very joyful announcement.

About four-and-a-half years ago …there was an evangelist in this country by the name of Pat Mesiti.

Most of you I think will know of him.. some of you may not.

Restored. Older, wiser and greedier.

Padre Pasquale “Pat” Mesiti. Restored. Contrite. Embarassed  Older, wiser and greedier.

He had a television program and was regularly conducting crusades … where through..500/1500 people would come to Christ.

He was an initiator of many great youth programs, including Youth Alive here in New South Wales… and accomplished a huge number of things for the nation ..in the realm of evangelism and.. touching people’s lives with the gospel.

However, four-and-a-half years ago, Pat had a terrible, terrible tumble….a moral collapse which resulted in his marriage breaking ..and ..was a sad moment.

Tumbler

Little Tumbler

He was taken out of ministry…and ..stepped down.

He was an ordained minister in the Assemblies of God ..and after attempting to retrace..recover ..and after a year…it seemed it wasn’t going quite how it was anticipated.

So Brian Houston and myself..who are good friends ….I said….look…I’ll put my hand up…I’d like to ..help…and I’ve known Pat ..forever and he’s good friends with a lot of the people on this staff …and has been…..and I thought this’d be great if he came..and was in our church…and we would seek to see him standing on his feet again.

A number of years ago…I said to the Lord….’I’m so busy being a pastor….I don’t feel like I’m being a Christian.’

Doctor Phil

“Doctor Phil”. Used to hand out pizzas. Now hands out false prophecies and dodgy restorations.

And…that just meant I was so busy leading and preaching ..doing all the stuff I wanted… I felt like…going and handing out pizzas to the homeless in Hyde Park ..or visiting people in old folks’ homes or reading books…or people in prison.

I’ve done all that..and used to teach in a school for handicapped children ….and …I go and visit prisons …just tell them to send up a prisoner if they didn’t have a visitor ..and I’d be there….and they didn’t know me…so.. when you get to be a pastor…you get a lot of other things going on ..

But He said to me …’no you’ve got a church full of people who can do that’……so I pray you do it man…

And He said….’no..no..no..what I want you to do is reach out to people that other people can’t reach out to..and that’s pastors …who are having troubled times…

And so…I try to do that…and there’s a few …who…I have no judgements on men and women who’ve found their life in trouble ….

Who knows what pressures they’re facing and what things they’ve gone through …but I do know they need to be recovered and restored.

And there is a pathway for that…repentence …restoration…restitution ..and making things right.

So Pat came….and I said to him…’Pat ..I want you to do several things…..one….turn up to church..’

Donald Elley of Bellingen:

Doctor Phil: “Pat, listen up. Turn up at church and listen to me, I’m the great “Doctor Phil” Pringle. I’m amazing”.

And even with the shame and the awkwardness and the emotional difficulty of all that …I said ..’that’s what you’ve gotta do’.

Because the church is the best place you can be…rather than a counselling room ….just being in the worship…being in the local church …being involved in some ministry …of serving in the House.. all of those things are the best healing processes you will ever find yourself engaged in….because you’re forced to modify your behaviour and get things right and overcome …and all kinds of things….and relate to people…

And then just the Spirit of God working amongst us..

I believe in the power of the local church …it is the most powerful thing on Earth …to actually affect all sorts of things in people’s lives.

So Pat did that..and one year after his marriage had broke…he met a lady called Andrea ..and I was happy to participate in their marriage …three….two-and-a-half years ago …two years ago? Two years ago ….and that was a really joyful occasion.

And Pat and Andrea served in the visitors’ lounge …helping us there …and have continued to be involved… in our church over that time.

And he’s been relating to Greg French….Simon McIntyre ..Mark Kelsey and myself …over that period of time.

We’ve had times where we’ve needed to say things…or help him understand things..or whatever ..and Pat has been exemplary in all his ways of handling it.

I have tried this with a number of ministers and leaders over the years ..and I’ve got to say not without a lot of success.

It’s been unfortunate..because people find it difficult ..find it tough to recover…old steps.

But Pat has really displayed a repentent attitude ..and a commitment to a pathway ..that will bring him fully back into that way…

Naughty pat. Now repentant.

Very Naughty Little Pat. Now repentant.

And the ministry team…we’ve all talked to each other…..and quite satisfied that he has fulfilled all those obligations.

The Assemblies of God asked him to do three years of restoration……it’s actually been four-and-a-half years now…that he has been out of ministry…and …as I said…we are happy that…

….So in the 10 o’clock service this morning… we laid hands on Pat and Andrea…and restored them to the ministry that God has called them to…(applause)..

In those services……well..actually…only in the 10 o’clock service….I asked Pat just to share something briefly..and he did… and so…I said…I want you to share in that service just briefly…..but what I really want you to do is preach in our church on Sunday night….

So…I want you to welcome Pat Mesiti as he comes…” (applause/cheering/Mesiti hugs Pringle)

Yo “Pastor” Pat. This is your life. This is your second chance little man. Go forth and conquer. Make us all millionaires.

My comments:

C3 Watch blog-site are very down on Phil Pringle.

I attended the C3 for about six years in the late nineties until 2002.

I renovated C3 City Campus (another trendy name for Church) in Darlinghurst for no charge re my time. It’s a beautiful old 1860 sandstone church and the oldest building in Darlinghurst.

I was always blessed by C3 at Oxford Falls back then however “Doctor Phil” Pringle has gone off the rails with false prophecies and delusions go grandeur particularly in relation to his spiritual progeny, the errant “Pastor” Kong Hee head pastor of City Harvest Church Singapore.

C3 wouldn’t suit me now because the hype, loud noise and spin would make me go troppo.

 Whether Pat Mesiti has been restored I wouldn’t have a clue. Phil Pringle thinks he has.

I’ve heard Pat Mesiti preach and personally the hype and weirdo levels are way too high for me. Is that a biblical term to describe high velocity, uninhibited, in-your-face preaching from an ill-educated, well-dressed small Italian?

Like I sense about Brian Houston,  I sense no good thing in God about Pat Mesiti. No anointing of the Holy Spirit. I doubt he’s had deliverance and been baptised in the Holy Spirit.

What’s the point in taking people seriously in God who are like that?

I’m not sure why Phil Pringle can’t see through these men. I thought he was a smart guy.

Extra note 20 October 2015:

I’m adding here two extra articles with additional information about Pat Mesiti’s adulteries, including with prostitutes while at the same time being a famous Australian Youth pastor preaching to thousands of trusting young people.

Padre Pasquale Mesiti- amazingly

Padre Pasquale Mesiti- amazingly “restored” by “Pastor” Brian Houston and “Doctor” Phil Pringle.

Article on this site, “Hillsong scandals and improprieties. Hillsong insider speaks out. Part one. The truth about Pat Mesiti’s adulteries with prostitutes”, published on 15 October 2015.

I’ve been contacted by a high up Hillsong insider who believes that Hillsong has gone off the rails and wants to tell their story.

This article is the first in a series of articles publishing the eye-witness testimonies of this Hillsong insider.

Hillsong insider reports:

“Pat Mesiti committed adultery with Darlinghurst prostitutes while he was a famous Hillsong Youth Alive pastor preaching to thousands of young people.

Pat Mesiti was caught by paying for the services of prostitutes using a Hillsong Church credit card.

Pat Mesiti had an adulterous affair, while he was married, with a young Hillsong worship leader.

He divorced his wife and married the young Hillsong worship leader who he had the affair with.

The pursuit and even harassment of young attractive women in Hillsong church by older Hillsong men and leaders is common. In fact it is part of the inner culture of Hillsong church”.

My comments:

I’d already heard these allegations from other sources about Pat Mesiti using a Hillsong credit card to pay for Darlinghurst prostitutes and getting caught out.

What I’d like to know is were the prostitutes male or female or bisexual or did he visit all of these three options?

Also were any of the prostitutes underage? If they were, that’s pedophilia.

Pat Mesiti could verify this by posting a comment in the comments box at the bottom of this article.

I’d also like to refer the reader to my previous article about Pat Mesiti published on 24 February this year entitled, ‘Pat Mesiti. Adultery. Hillsong Youth Pastor. Youth Alive evangelist. Fell from grace and restored by Phil Pringle. How the corrupt priests of Pentecost sowed devils on each other. Part 8. Australian and New Zealand errant Pentecostal pastors who couldn’t keep it in their trousers or sexually abused little kids’.

I’ll have to upgrade this article to mention the allegation of Pat Mesiti committing adultery on a Hillsong credit card with Darlinghurst prostitutes.

I’ve heard allegations that Pat Mesiti used to go and visit Darlinghurst prostitutes, circa 2000, after preaching to thousands of innocent believing young people at Hillsong Youth Alive meetings in Sydney. My older children used to go to these meetings.

I wonder how Pat’s first wife is getting along these days?

Another article on this site, ‘Hillsong scandals and improprieties. Hillsong insider speaks out. Part two. Should Pat Mesiti ever have been a pastor again?’, published 16 October 2015.

I’ve been contacted by a high up Hillsong insider who believes that Hillsong has gone off the rails and wants to tell their story.

This article is the second in a series of articles publishing the eye-witness testimonies of this Hillsong insider.

Today I’m going to continue on from my first article on this site in the current series, ‘Hillsong scandals and improprieties. Hillsong insider speaks out. Part one. The truth about Pat Mesiti’s adulteries with prostitutes’.

To recap this is what the Hillsong insider reported to me.

Hillsong insider speaks:

“Pat Mesiti committed adultery with Darlinghurst prostitutes while he was a famous Hillsong Youth Alive pastor preaching to thousands of young people.

Pat Mesiti was caught by paying for the services of prostitutes using a Hillsong Church credit card.

Pat Mesiti had an adulterous affair, while he was married, with a young Hillsong worship leader.

He divorced his wife and married the young Hillsong worship leader who he had the affair with.

The pursuit and even harassment of young attractive women in Hillsong church by older Hillsong men and leaders is common. In fact it is part of the inner culture of Hillsong church.

My comments:

A number of questions come to mind after hearing this series of statements from the Hillsong insider.

Firstly, why hasn’t Hillsong informed us, the Body of Christ, or even it’s own members, or even the pastors in the Australian Assemblies of God movement (AoG) or even it’s own pastors at Hillsong of the facts about what Pat Mesiti did?

After all, in the years around 2000 when Pat Mesiti committed these spiritual and moral offences, Pastor Pat Mesiti, as he was known then, was by far the most prominent Christian Youth Pastor in Australia. Even I’d heard of him.

I heard of him because I had to hear from him because until 2001 I was attending the Hillsong organisation at Christian Life Centre (CLC), Waterloo, the second incarnation of Hillsong. The first incarnation was CLC Darlinghurst where I spent eight years from 1981 when we all moved across to the new building at Waterloo.

I’ve known Brian Houston since before he became a pastor. In 1981-3 a young Brian with longer hair than his current hair transplant enhanced crop and a trendy moustache, was ‘preaching up a storm’, like his old pedophile father Frank Houston did, at CLC Darlinghurst.

This was before Hillsong’s third incarnation as Hillsong Baulkhams Hills.

When a young Brian preached in say 1983, it was like twin jet engines spluttering on the tarmac. At first there was a loud roar, followed by a series of splutters and then the fuel hit the pay-load and it was all on. Seagulls scattered and a foul wind of burnt high-octane aircraft fuel poured out of the engines. The roar became unbearable and then it faded into the distance as Brian stopped preaching.

And we, the poor guinea pigs, at CLC Darlinghurst had to grin and bear it.

Pat Mesiti’s preaching is much the same. Thankfully Pat flies a smaller aircraft. But the assault on the senses, particularly the ears, is still the same. A cacophony of sounds delivered at high speed and high intensity without much content.

I don’t know if Pat Mesiti went to Bible College but if he did he didn’t listen, and he certainly didn’t attend or listen to the ethics class.

What’s wrong with having sex with prostitutes?

It’s quite common in Italy, where Pat Mesiti’s ancestors came from, to visit prostitutes, even after you’re married. Decades ago, say in the 1960s and before, it was even socially acceptable in Italy to visit prostitutes and to have a mistress when you married, particularly if you were wealthy. The French still think like this, even today. It’s a European thing. And it’s become an Australian thing. The Australian sex industry and the brothel industry turns over billions of dollars annually. It has for decades.

I don’t know where Pat went and what naughty Pat did with whom?

I hope Pat used condoms, otherwise he might have Aids, HIV, another STD like gonorrhoea, or hepatitis B.

Whether Pat used a Hillsong credit card to have sex with a young woman, an older more experienced cougar, a man, a bisexual or whatever, I simply don’t know.

I’d like to think Pat visited a nice attractive top-end expensive female prostitute on that Hillsong credit card. Someone who insists her clients use condoms and washes with disinfectant between clients. I have no idea. My Hillsong insider didn’t know any more. I don’t know any more. Does anyone want to know anymore? Probably only naughty Pat Mesiti knows the full story. And he’s not telling.

I’d like to know the gender of the prostitutes, the age, how many times Pat visited prostitutes, which suburb did he go to etc etc…just the general details would be enough.

The general details would be enough.

What’s wrong with having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong church credit card?

If a man goes to a brothel in his spare time, isn’t a Christian, isn’t a pastor, wears a condom and behaves properly, and pays for the experience out of his own hard-earned cash, that’s one thing.

But when a man is not only a Christian, but is a very prominent Youth Pastor preaching to thousands of innocent believing young people, is going to a brothel on a Church credit card wrong?

I think I just answered the question. It’s prima facie wrong. You don’t even need to open your Bible. Any average Joe or Jill non-church-goer wouldn’t support the action.

What’s wrong with having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong church credit card when you’re a famous trusted Christian Youth evangelist preaching to thousands of innocent believing young people, including Donald Elley of Bellingen’s older children?

Everything.

So what should have happened to Pat Mesiti when he got caught having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong credit card, and cheated on his wife with a young Hillsong worship leader, at the same time? An unholy mess. And should he have been ‘restored’ by Pastor Phil Pringle, the CEO of C3 international Church, which has it’s headquarters on Sydney’s Northern Beaches?

Firstly, what should have happened to Pat Mesiti when he got caught having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong credit card, and also cheating on so wife with an young attractive female worship leader?

If I was Brian Houston, Pat Mesiti’s boss at the time, the first action I would have taken is to send Pat to a Medical Centre for an Aids/ HIV/ STD/ Hepatitis B blood and skin test. Then I would have asked the young worship leader Pat was involved with at the time to go and do the same thing. Then I would have told his wife to do the same thing. Then I would have verified whether Pat had slept with any other women besides prostitutes. If there were any I would have told them to do the same thing. Yes, it’s quite messy when we play around when we’re married, especially if we’re a prominent Christian Youth pastor and famous evangelist, and especially if it’s with prostitutes and with an attractive young Hillsong worship leader.

What does the New Testament in the Holy Bible say about famous pastors who do very public sexual sins like Pat did?

Sure King David did some bad stuff and God blessed him despite this. But he was a king and times were different back then.

Our guide book for sexual sins and the sexual sins of pastors is the New Testament.

I’m not going to do a whole Bible teaching on the subject.

The grace of God is very great, but there are very high Bible standards for pastors and teachers.

When we commit extremely serious sexual sins like Pat Mesiti did, it’s important to be honest. I think the worst thing about what Pat did is that he’s never come clean about what he did. He’s tried to cover it up, rationalise his addictive sexual sins, minimise them, and sanitise them, in the same way that his mentor, so-called Pastor Brian Houston, who is in reality not a pastor at all, more of a money-making charlatan than anything else…in the same way that so-called Pastor Brian Houston has tried to minimise and sanitise the sins of his old life-long pedophile father, Frank Houston against little boys.

The Brian Houston, Phil Pringle and Hillsong spin words for extremely serious spiritual and moral sins like pedophilia and visiting prostitutes on church credit cards is “moral failure”, “serious moral failure” or “addiction issues”.

These are the terms Brian Houston, Phil Pringle and Pat Mesiti himself have used in all communications to the Hillsong movement, C3 movement, and the media, since circa 2000, when the pedophile Frank Houston, and the then sex-addict Pat Mesiti, were both caught out for their repeated long-term sins by Hillsong. In Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong’s case, the repeated sins were lifelong pedophilia. In Pat Mesiti’s case I’m not sure how long Pat was a sex addict and whether he still struggles with that issue.

“Moral failure”, “serious moral failure” or “addiction issues”. This is the problem with Hillsong. They try to ‘spin’ their way out of everything. Lies, half-truths, reinventions, even ‘restorations’. These are the grubby circus tricks of the Houstons and those associated with them.

Was Pat Mesiti restored?

I doubt it. I can see zero evidence of it.

I don’t think Phil Pringle did anything at all to restore naughty Pat.

Pat is still the greedy man full of avarice and financial ambition that he was before the restoration, and probably worse.

Is Pat Mesiti still seeing prostitutes on church credit cards?

I hope not. His second wife, the one he was seeing behind his wife’s back, the young Hillsong worship leader, looks like a nice person.

Pat Mesiti Andrea m20

Pat Mesiti with second wife Andrea in Positano, Amalfi Coast, Italy. Now divorced after Pat bashed her. On holiday with their close friends Bobbie and Brian Houston.

I wonder how Pat’s first wife is getting on these days.

The trouble for Pat is that the New Testament has very high standards for Christian pastors, teachers and evangelists.

As the great Apostle Paul taught, there’s a much greater standard and a much greater accountability for pastors, teachers and evangelists.

By New Testament teaching on pastors and teachers if you do what Pat Mesiti did as a famous preacher and teacher, you’re finished. Hang up the pastor hat and do something else.

It doesn’t mean you’re finished as a Christian. It may be that if you truly repent and seek the face of God, you’re only just beginning.

But as far as being a pastor is concerned, forget it. What Pat did as a famous Christian pastor is just too bad.

This is the problem with Christians today. In John G Lake’s time and Smith Wigglesworth’s time the questions I’m exploring wouldn’t have been explored. In those days it would have been simple morality math:

Being a very famous Christian Youth Pastor plus cheating on your wife plus pursuing a young Christian worship leader at your church and having sex with her behind your wife’s back plus cheating on your wife with prostitutes plus using a Church credit card to cheat on your wife with prostututes equals “You’re finished as a pastor…goodbye and goodnight”.

I’ve invited His Holy Eminence Brian…err St Pete of Hillsong, also known as Saint Copulator II, to share his thoughts about Pat Mesiti and the restoration of pastors, like he tried to do to his dad Saint Francis the rock spider pedophile.

Thank you Donald Elley, you scoundrel and heretic of old. I'm now going to outline my strategy for getting into worship in the Holy Spirit. To clarify, my name is not common old garden type Brian any more. From now on I'm pious Pete, the holy Pope of Hillsong, once in mere Darlinghurst with my dear dad and the gays, or my dear gay dad and the gays or my old pedo dad and the gays or...Bobby Bobby why am I saying theses things over and over na dover nav over and...

Saint Copulator II: “Thank you Donald Elley of Bellingen, so pleased to see you again”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “What do you think was the cause of Pat Mesiti’s adultery?” Saint Copulator II: “Now, Donald Elley of Bellingen, I didn’t say the word adultery, I said serious moral failure”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Why did you tell all the ACC churches not to share this with their congregations?” Saint Copulator II: “It’s all about the sanctity and sacredness of the holy priesthood”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Do you mean that ACC pastors are to be protected and shielded if they do something morally wrong?” St Copulator II: “We at the Holy Basilica of Hillsong have a long-standing tradition of brotherhood and godly fellowship. Some things are better kept in the Holy Temple”. Donald: “Are you aware of how Pat Mesiti’s wife is faring after the affair”. Saint Copulator II: “We have a large and caring pastoral care team. She is free to contact them any time. The number is 1800…”

I’ll now interview Holy Black Jesus about Pat Mesiti, Brian Houston, Hillsong and “Doctor Phil” Pringle.

Donald elley of bellingen:

Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Holy Black Jesus, who do you think is greater, the Holy Pontiff Saint Francis of Rome or Saint Copulator II, formerly plain old Brian Houston of Lower Hutt, New Zealand”. Holy Black Jesus: “Well, they were both poor peasants, one from South America and one from grey fibro Lower Hutt, New Zealand, who’ve made it big on the holy religious world stage. What do you think Black Madonna Momma?” Black Madonna Momma: “Saint Copulator II by a whisker. I’m a big fan of Bobbie Houston”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Holy Black Jesus, how do you feel about your holy son Pat Mesiti being restored to the ministry after being caught with his pants down?” Holy Black Jesus: “Well, if the holy parsonage Doctor Phil Pringle diagnosed Pat Mesiti as being in good spiritual health then he must be. After all Doctor Phil Pringle is a Doctor”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Holy Black Jesus, who do you think is greater, Doctor Phil Pringle or Saint Copulator II, formerly plain old Brian, the boy who used to play marbles at Lower Hutt Primary School and jump in dirty New Zealand puddles with his class-mates?” Holy Black Jesus: “Well, Doctor Phil Pringle after all is a Doctor but on the other hand, Brian has Bobbie. Come to think of it, the jury’s out on whether Bobbie is an asset or a liability. I think Doctor Phil Pringle by a whisker because he’s a Doctor”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Holy Black Madonna Momma, have you read Bobbie Houston’s book, Kingdom women love sex?” Holy Black Madonna Momma: “I’ve never heard of that book. Here in Positano Italy we only have junk tourists leave behind on the floor after they’ve taken photographs of me and my son Holy Black Jesus in this Holy Roman Church. Is it pornography?”

New York: A California vaccine sceptic and Hillsong church member said to have “so much in front of him” has died from COVID-19.

Stephen Harmon, a member of the Los Angeles megachurch where Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner and Chris Pratt have reportedly sat in attendance, lost his battle on Wednesday. He was aged 34, according to reports.

News of his death was announced by Hillsong pastor Brian Houston on Twitter, in a post that has since been deleted.

“He was one of the most generous people I know and he had so much in front of him,” Houston wrote.

The Australian founder of the multinational Hillsong Church told CNN that COVID-19 vaccines are a “personal decision for each individual to make with the counsel of medical professionals”.

According to Harmon’s Twitter feed, which was made private on Friday, his scepticism over vaccination succumbed to concern after he was hospitalised earlier this month.

“Please pray y’all, they really want to intubate me and put me on a ventilator,” he wrote Sunday. “If you don’t have faith that God can heal me over your stupid ventilator then keep the Hell out of my ICU room, there’s no room in here for fear or lack of faith.”

Harmon later tweeted that he had decided to opt for intubation as his condition worsened.

His previous posts, though still defiant, also appeared flippant. On June 3, he posted one entry paraphrasing Jay-Z’s rap classic 99 Problems.

“If you’re having email problems, I feel bad for you, son,” he tweeted. “I got 99 problems but a vax ain’t one.”

CBS news said Harmon lived in Corona, California. He described himself on Twitter as being “Passionate for people, inspired by vision, determined by conviction.”

The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention warned last week that the nation was facing a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”

Meanwhile, a conservative Tennessee-based talk radio host has changed his previously sceptical messaging on vaccines after being hospitalised with COVID-19, his family said.

Phil Valentine, who has posted on social media dissuading his audience from getting vaccinated if they aren’t “in danger of dying” from COVID, has been hospitalised in the critical care unit and is receiving supplemental oxygen, but is not on a ventilator, according to his brother.

Valentine told listeners after being diagnosed — but before being hospitalised — that he chose not to get a COVID vaccine because he thought he probably wouldn’t die from the disease.

His brother, Mark Valentine, said on WWTN-FM in Nashville this week that his brother has never been an “anti-vaxxer,” but was “pro-information” and “pro-choice” regarding the vaccine.

“First of all, he’s regretful that he wasn’t a more vocal advocate of the vaccination,” Mark Valentine said. “For those listening, I know if he were able to tell you this, he would tell you, ‘Go get vaccinated. Quit worrying about the politics. Quit worrying about all the conspiracy theories.’”

In December, 2020, as vaccines were just beginning to roll out in the US, Phil Valentine wrote in a blog post that he probably had a very low chance of getting COVID.

Tennessee has one of the lowest vaccination rates in the country, and new cases have been on the rise in July as the highly spreadable delta variant is now responsible for the majority of cases in the country.

Mark Valentine said he got vaccinated after his brother’s sickness. A post on the station’s Facebook page from the family says that Valentine plans to advocate for vaccinations once he recovers and returns to the airwaves.

“Please continue to pray for his recovery and PLEASE GO GET VACCINATED!” his family said in the statement.

By CNN Jul 25, 2021

“Stephen was just a young man in his early 30s,” Houston wrote, announcing Harmon’s death on social media.”He was one of the most generous people I know and he had so much in front of him.

“Houston expanded on his social media posts in a statement to CNN, saying that: “any loss of life is a moment to mourn and offer support to those who are suffering and so our heartfelt prayers are with his family and those who loved him.”

“On any medical issue, we strongly encourage those in our church to follow the guidance of their doctors,” Houston said, emphasizing that the church’s focus was on spiritual well-being.”While many of our staff, leadership and congregation have already received the COVID-19 vaccine, we recognize this is a personal decision for each individual to make with the counsel of medical professionals,” Houston’s statement reads.

Hillsong Church, founded in Australia, has congregations around the world. Harmon attended Hillsong in Los Angeles, CNN affiliate KCBS reported.CNN sought comment from the Harmon family but did not receive a response.

Prior to him saying he was infected with COVID-19, Harmon made two posts on Twitter on June 3 in which he parodied Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” lyrics – saying he had 99 problems but “a vax” wasn’t one.

Just over a month later, Harmon had pneumonia as a result of COVID-19 infection and was sitting in a hospital bed in a COVID ward, according to his Instagram posts.

He had been hospitalized with COVID-19 complications since at least June 30, according to his social media posts.

Throughout his hospitalisations, social media posts show that Harmon kept in frequent contact with Houston.

Even while in a hospital, Harmon was adamant that he would not receive the vaccine, posting he wasn’t “anti-vax” but was “pro information.””I’m not against it, I’m just not in a rush to get it,” he wrote in a July 8 Instagram post.

“Ironically, as I continue to lay here … in my COVID ward isolation room fighting off the virus and pneumonia.”

He added he wouldn’t get a vaccine even after recovery.

“Biden’s door to door vaccine ‘surveyors’ really should be called JaCovid Witnesses. #keepmovingdork,”

Harmon wrote the same day on Twitter.

On Friday, after his death was announced, Harmon’s Instagram account was made private.

A member of the Hillsong megachurch who poked fun at the Covid-19 vaccine on social media has passed away after contracting the virus.

Stephen Harmon, 34, died at the Corona Regional Medical Center, Los Angeles, on Wednesday.

His death was announced by Hillsong founder Brian Houston, who said he had just heard the “devastating news that our beloved friend, Stephen Harmon has passed away from Covid. Heartbreaking.”

Mr Harmon was admitted to hospital last month after contracting Covid and pneumonia.

In his final days, he shared harrowing details of his fight to stay alive.

“Please pray y’all, they really want to intubate me and put me on a ventilator,” he said on Sunday.

“Even the slightest movements and my heart rate skyrockets and oxygen dependency increases. and please, I’m not asking for anyone’s opinion on intubation, I’ll make my own choice, I’m asking for prayer.”

He told how he was suffering from a skyrocketing heart rate, panic attacks, and at risk of losing consciousness and being intubated.

“If you don’t have faith that God can heal me over your stupid ventilator then keep the Hell out of my ICU room, there’s no room in here for fear or lack of faith,” he wrote.

In his last Tweet on Wednesday, Mr Harmon tweeted that he had decided to go under intubation.

“I’ve fought this thing as hard as I can but unfortunately it’s reached a point of critical choice and as much as I hate having to do this I’d rather it be willingness than forced emergency procedure.”

Before falling ill, Mr Harmon had been a vocal opponent of the Covid vaccines, and joked that he would never get the jab.

“If you’re having email problems, I feel bad for you, son. I got 99 problems but a vax ain’t one,” he wrote on June 3.

Cases of Covid-19 across the United States are rising at alarming levels, fuelled by the Delta variant.

The seven-day rolling average hit 40,246 on Thursday, according to the Centers for Disease and Control Prevention (CDC), a 46.7% increase from a week earlier.
