Claims to fame: Youth pastor, Learning of the Lord Revival Center (Church of God in Christ), Des Moines, Iowa; convicted child molester
Moral apex: Accused of sexually abusing at least two girls, eight and twelve years old, inside his church, pastored by his mother (whose title is “shepherdess”), and in his apartment. Pled guilty to lascivious acts with a child — then tried to withdraw his plea. Sentenced to 15 years.
But: There is still a “Damion A. Rutues” listed as associate pastor on the church’s (blinding-red) Web site.
Suggested Bible reading for Mr. Rutues:
And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.
— Leviticus 19:12
