A shocking case exposing the dark side of the missionaries has come to light from the United States. Reportedly, a pastor has been arrested for raping a girl since she was 7 years old in Houston city of Texas. he accused, identified as pastor Robert L Carter, first raped the victim in 2008. He is a senior pastor at the Sanctuary Church of Christ.
In the last 15 years, he has raped the girl almost 600 times and impregnated her when she was 16 years old. The minor was even forced to give birth to the baby secretly.
While speaking to local media, the victim’s father said that the 39-year-old Carter took advantage of her. He added that the accused was a family member of his daughter.
According to Carter’s arrest warrant filed last month, the abuse began back in 2008. It states he would go into the then-young child’s room and make her perform a sex act on him on a nightly basis.
“How? How could you even get aroused? It doesn’t make any sense,” the father said.
The warrant states the abuse got worse over the years, and that it would happen in multiple locations, including their home when everyone was asleep, Carter’s grandmother’s home, and behind an H-E-B in the parking lot before dropping the victim off at school. The document also says Carter would bring the victim to the Greater Bible Way Church in Sunnyside where he had an office, and rape her.
“She had been around this monster since she was about 6 years old. Carter has always been big to her…I had to admit that she had been fearful,” the victim’s father said. He was shocked at his behaviour saying, ‘how could a man carry himself, preach about the bible, and ‘live a lie’ at the same time’.
“What if she (his daughter) had died that night? She had that baby in the closet, by herself. He (the accused) came and got the baby, took it to a fire station, and dropped it off,” he continued.
“She’s had an episode where she ended up in the hospital for psychiatric reasons,” the father added.
Pastor Robert L. Carter is charged with raping a girl child at various locations, according to the criminal complaint brought against him. Along with their home, the homes of Carter’s grandmothers, a grocery store parking lot, and his church office at the Greater Bible Way Church were among these locations.
Despite the fact that a complaint has been filed against the suspected Christian pastor, he has not yet been taken into custody.
As for the baby, the victim’s father said his daughter is working to get her child back.
