TOLEDO, Ohio —A letter from a teenager who was used for sex for more than two years by a ring of three “pastors” was read aloud in court on Friday as two of them faced sentencing on sex trafficking charges.
“To my abusers, I say thank you because a broken girl would have stayed lost, but not me,” the unidentified victim wrote, as reported by The Toledo Blade. “I found Christ. I spoke my truth with Him and held my head high. No one can take from me because I endure.”
She chastised the men as manipulating young women despite knowing what the Bible says and preaching it to others.
“You guys taught the word, and you still abused and manipulated,” the now 19-year-old stated. “I forgive you for my own sake because I am a true Christ follower and believer. You know what you’ve done, [and] you knew the impact it would have, reasons you tried to keep it a secret. For every wrong action in life comes a consequence — even the Bible says it.”
As previously reported, Anthony Haynes, who oversees Greater Life Christian Center, along with Cordell Jenkins of Abundant Life Ministries, both of Toledo, were arrested in 2017 after the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) busted them for enticing a minor “less than eighteen years old to engage in commercial sex acts.”
According to official documents, Hayes was accused of engaging in repeated sexual relations with the teenager beginning in 2014. She had moved in with his family after her mother wasn’t able to sufficiently care for her, and Hayes reportedly presented her before the congregation and declared that he would protect her as a father as she had been sexually abused in the past.
However, “he coerced [the teen] into continued secrecy by implying revealing the sexual activity between them would ruin his family and church,” the federal complaint read.
Hayes soon introduced the girl to other men, including Jenkins, who was accused of having sexual relations with the teenager in his office at Abundant Life Ministries.
A local Red Roof Inn additionally confirmed that Jenkins rented a room with the teenager twice, including one time when the girl says that he asked her to bring a friend. She and her friend were paid for the encounters.
According to local television station WNWO, investigators looked through the teenager’s phone and discovered that she had been encouraged to send photographs and videos of herself, some without her clothes on. It was likewise found that some of the sexual encounters had been recorded.
The Toledo Blade reports that Jenkins defended himself on Friday by asserting that he thought the girl and her friend were adults.
“There is never a time that I would set out intentionally, deliberately, or desire ever to have any type of relationship other than to love and nurture a minor. Ever. Ever, your Honor,” he said.
Jenkins claimed that it was the stresses of ministry life that caused him to engage in adultery, which then destroyed his marriage and home. He apologized and stated that he never sought to cause anyone harm or pain.
However, U.S. District Court Judge Jack Zouhary did not believe Jenkins’ assertions that he didn’t know the females were still minors.
“How dare you come in here today at this late stage in the case and continue to defend yourself in front of everyone in front of this courtroom,” he said. “I’m sorry, I don’t buy it. Not for a moment.”
Jenkins was sentenced to life in prison.
Haynes is scheduled to be sentenced next month, and a third minister involved, Keith Butler of Kingdom Encounter Family Worship Center in Detroit, Michigan, was sentenced on Friday to 17 1/2 years behind bars.
Numbers 32:23 says, “[B]e sure your sin will find you out.”
German leader Angela Merkel is misleading Germans again just prior to elections. She stated that “populists are the enemy of Europe and seek to destroy the continent’s globalist values”. She also “urged Croatians and other voters in Europe to shun pro-sovereignty, anti-mass migration political forces at the ballot boxes.”
Meanwhile, Christianity is dying in Germany while Islam rises, with help from globalist Merkel. As a result, Germany has suffered the ills of: jihad attacks, widespread sex attacks, an escalation of crime and even Merkel has admitted to a corresponding rise in antisemitism. She stated: “We now have another phenomenon, as we have refugees or people of Arab origin who bring another form of anti-Semitism into the country.”
The rise of the ‘populist’ movement in the EU demonstrates the will of the people of Europe to preserve Judeo-Christian values, protect their borders and reclaim their nations’ sovereignty. Angela Merkel and other globalist leaders who were elected to represent the will of the people have no respect for their citizenry. A recent poll found overwhelmingly that Islam is unwelcome in Germany.
“Merkel Bashes Populists, Calls for ‘Pro-Minority’ Europe of ‘Values’ Ahead of Elections”, Breitbart, by Virginia Hale, Breitbart, May 21, 2019:
Populists are the “enemy” of Europe and seek to destroy the continent’s globalist “values”, Angela Merkel has warned ahead of European Parliament elections this week. Speaking in Zagreb at the weekend, the German Chancellor urged Croatians and other voters in Europe to shun pro-sovereignty, anti-mass migration political forces at the ballot boxes this week.
Patriotism and support for a federal European superstate in which national sovereignty has been transferred to Brussels are “not opposites”, said the chancellor, insisting: “Our values mean we can be proud of our own country and at the same time work to build Europe.
“There are populist currents that in many areas disdain these values, that want to destroy our European values,” said Merkel, pointing to fundamental human rights and the protection of minorities as examples of these.
“Nationalism is the enemy of the European project, and we have to make that clear in the last days before the election,” she added, stressing that Europe is a “project of peace”, a “project of freedom” and “the project of prosperity”.
The veteran German leader appeared at the rally alongside her fellow Christian Democratic Union (CDU) politician, Manfred Weber, the lead candidate of the EU Parliament’s neoliberal, so-called centre-right grouping.
On Saturday, Weber echoed Merkel’s message as he ruled out any cooperation with populists following this week’s vote, telling Croatian media: “Right-wing populists and extremists are those who want to destroy Europe, who are not believing any more in partnership on this continent and we will fight against them.”….

A group of 8-10 Somali teenagers armed with hammers attacked and injured several people at a rail station in Minnesota on Friday night.
In Minneapolis Police Department dispatch audio, a report of “a group of 8-10 males chasing people with hammers” was called in.
The attack occurred at the East Bank Light Rail Station near the University of Minnesota and the infamous Little Mogadishu neighborhood.
“The U of M PD is asking for assistance from Metro Transit and Minneapolis for a group of 8-10 males at the East Bank Light Rail station chasing people around with hammers. They do have some people injured,” the audio confirms.
Below is a report filed by the University of Minnesota police, showing “a group of Somali juveniles” brandished “metal pipes” and fled police.
An alleged witness said, “It was a group of Somali young males with hammers and bars. They were attacking anyone who looked like they had money or were white.”
“I kinda hurried an older white lady away and walked a few blocks to catch a bus,” he continued. “They pretty much ignored me but i was in ratty work clothes and am half arabic. Guess they gave me a pass.”
The bystander also mentioned he would have done something about the attack if he was armed, saying, “I really wish I had a concealed carry permit because then maybe I could of stopped at least a few of them.”
The incident took place on Friday, May 17 and has yet to receive coverage by any mainstream news outlet.
The district where the attack happened is run by controversial Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar and was labeled “the terrorist recruitment capital of the US,” by Fox News.
In 2016, investigative journalist Ami Horowitz exposed the radicalized ideology of citizens who live in Lilttle Mogadishu as they openly admit they would prefer Sharia Law over the U.S. Constitution.
Minnesota’s Somali Americans:
Sharia Law Preferable to American Law
An Alex Jones rant about Somali migrants was turned into a viral folk song – Check it out here!
Eric Zammour, a prominent French figure, ignited considerable controversy on television and radio programs in which he blamed all the troubles of France on French Muslim communities, particularly from North Africa
The blame for France’s chaos and this latest airport hooliganism also lies on the shoulders of globalists who fought hard for suicidal open door immigration, which transported problems into France. Someone bellowed over loudspeaker at the airport: “France does not belong to the French! Everyone has a right to be here!”
Such words compliment those of leader Emmanuel Macron who said last August that “true” Frenchmen and Danes “do not exist”.
France has a big problem on its hands now with the new migrant support group, the “Black Vests” to counter the Yellow Vests.
Elections are around the corner so let’s hope that the French elect a leader who seeks the well-being of France, and begins to deport illegals and jihadists from its midst.
“Footage shows hundreds of migrants occupying French airport terminal”, by Tamar Lapin, New York Post, May 19, 2019:
Video showed hundreds of illegal immigrants storming a French airport and occupying an entire terminal Sunday, demanding to meet with the country’s prime minister.
Footage posted on Twitter shows roughly 500 migrants chanting in Terminal 2 of the Charles de Gaulle airport as about a dozen police officers in tactical gear look on.
“France does not belong to the French! Everyone has a right to be here!” one person can be heard yelling into a loudspeaker.
The protest was organized by the migrant support group La Chapelle Debout, which said their members call themselves “Black Vests.”
The group comes amid the country’s months-long “Yellow Vests movement” over tax reforms. French citizens are required to carry yellow vests in their vehicles for emergencies.
In an official statement, the group asked to meet with Prime Minister Edouard Philippe over the country’s asylum policy as well as the leaders of Air France. They demanded that the airline “stop any financial, material, logistical or political participation in deportations.”
Later Sunday, an Air France delegation met with the group, a member told local newspaper Le Parisien.
A migrant who took part in the protest warned it wouldn’t be the last.
“We have targeted Air France, and other actions will follow,” he told the paper….
