Pastor arrested for inserting his fingers up Women's Vagina's

Well theres two gross things here. First faith healing is very common amongst Christians. Secondly, from Answering Christianity:

Let us look at the following Verses in the Bible: "If a man takes a wife and, after laying with her, dislikes her and slanders her and gives her a bad name, saying, 'I married this woman but when I approached her, I did not find proof of her virginity,' then the girl's father and mother shall bring proof [how do you think they would do that?] that she was a virgin to the town elders at the gate. The girl's father will say to the elders, 'I gave my daughter in marriage to this man, but he dislikes her. Now he has slandered her and said, 'I did not find your daughter to be a virgin.' But here is the proof of my daughter's virginity.' Then her parents shall display the cloth [the father would literally stick his two fingers covered with a piece of cloth into his daughter's vagina before she gets married and keep that bloody cloth for as long as his daughter is married] with before the elders of the town, and the elders shall take the man and punish him. (From the NIV Bible, Deuteronomy 22:13-18)"

Here is a more clear translation from Hebrew Resources: "The girl's father and mother shall produce the evidence of the girl's virginity before the elders of the town at the gate. And the girl's father shall say to the elders, "I gave this man my daughter to wife, but he had taken an aversion to her; so he has made up charges, saying, 'I did not find your daughter a virgin.' But here is the evidence of my daughter's virginity!" And they shall spread out the cloth before the elders of the town. (From the New JPS translation, Deuteronomy 22:15-17)"

The New JPS translation of Deuteronomy 22:15-17 makes it even more clear about having the parents of the girl displaying the bloody piece of cloth before the elders of the town.

According to the Talmud, the cloth should be "A cloth of less than 3 square finger-breadths. (From the Talmud, Eruvin 29b-30a and Succah 16a)", and before it is being used, it should be "soft, woolen and clean. (From the Talmud, Niddah 17a)"

So this fingering of the vagina is quite Biblical.

RICHARD ADDO, the 29-year-old man who has been arrested by the Adenta police for inserting his fingers into the private parts of women, has told a court in Accra that God directed him to do so in order to heal them.

Appearing before the Madina Magistrate Court presided over by Rhoda K. Donkor, Richard, who alleged that he belonged to the Word Miracle church at Nungua, said God directed him to do that through a prophecy.

'After receiving the prophecy I contacted some men of God who prayed with me,' he noted.

Richard has been remanded into police custody to reappear on March 3, 2011.

The Word Miracle church has however denied he is a church member or a prophet of their apostolic faith.

Meanwhile, Richard has been identified by two other women who claim the suspect fingered them as well, using the same method.

They stormed the police station after reading the story in the DAILY GUIDE.

One of them is a student at UDS, Wa, in the Upper West region, where the suspect is also said to be a student and the other is a married woman based at Nungua. Their names have however been withheld.

According to information available to DAILY GUIDE , the suspect befriended the two women and frequently invited them for prayers. He asked them to buy olive oil, which he smeared his hands with before inserting them (fingers) into their private parts.

As at press time yesterday, the two persons had given their statements to the Adenta police, bringing the number of complaints against the suspect to seven.

Prophet Richard Addo is said to have confessed to the police that he indeed inserted his fingers into the private parts of the ladies.

It would be recalled that the self-styled man of God was nabbed by the Adenta District Police Command for allegedly inserting his fingers into the private parts of five women under the pretext of praying for them.

Prophet Richard Addo was arrested after one of the women boldly reported the incident to the police.

According to the victims, Prophet Addo charged them various amounts of money ranging between GH¢150 to GH¢200, in addition to inserting his fingers into their vaginas.

One of the victims said she met the suspect in November 2010 on the street when he prophesied to her that he could see a vision in which a baby was crying while walking behind her.

'I then confessed to him that I have had an abortion before and he said that he will help me pray to break that bondage.

We then made an appointment to meet at my hostel for prayers. Later he asked me to give him GH¢150 to purchase olive oil for the deliverance prayers while the remaining balance will also be used as seed money for prayer request,' the victim narrated.

According to her, during a subsequent prayer session, Richard asked her to remove her clothes, after which he rubbed her body with the olive oil and then fingered her.

Another victim also narrated that Richard, after meeting her, prophesied that it had been revealed to him that she was barren.

'He made me pay GH¢200 for olive oil and the rest to be used as prayer request,' she intimated.

It should be noted, many of the African news officials are very pro Christianity. So if anything like this happens, they'll immediately try to turn one's attention away from the Christian Faith.
