UK Evangelical gave Prayer Group Naked Beatings

Well it is Friday!

According to the Telegraph
Quote:
The Rev Jonathan Fletcher, 76, was the leading Church of England evangelical minister who has been banned from preaching after “spiritually abusing” vulnerable adults.

However further details about the nature of his abuse - specifically “physical discipline” - have since emerged. Mr Fletcher administered physical beatings on men’s naked backsides .& &............

Given the choice I would prefer a few Hail Marys

Re: UK Evangelical gave Prayer Group Naked Beatings

Googling the Rev Jonathan Fletcher, it seems he’s got form for being close to the action when it comes to knocking people about in the name of the church, especially if he thinks he’s ‘curing’ homosexuality. Weirdo.

He's mentioned in Private Eye as well. He's one of the three trustees of the FC Charitable Trust. Apparently one of the other trustees is a member of the weirdo Catholic cult St Pius X.
