'Freedom from Homosexuality' author accused of sexual assault

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2014-07-15 At 7.38.17 AmPastor Duane Youngblood, from the Higher Call World Outreach Church in Homestead, Pennsylvania, once penned a book called Freedom From Homosexuality: No Longer Living The Lie. He also counseled others whom he convinced he could "change" from what he calls "the enemy’s plan."

And now there's this:

A local pastor has been arrested, accused of sexually assaulting a teenager.

Duane Youngblood with the “Higher Call World Outreach Church” in Homestead was charged Saturday with corrupting a minor.

The boy, now 21, told police Youngblood sexually abused him over a period of two-and-a-half years while Youngblood was supposed to be counseling him at the church. The assaults allegedly happened in the church office, bathroom and back room.

The story notes that Youngblood is already a registered sex offender stemming from past accusations of molesting a 15-year-old. These accusations came the same year the pastor wrote his little propaganda book.

So all in all, another banner day for the so-called "ex-gay" movement.
