Just Looked, Didn’t Touch

Ernest Angley, 93, is the latest televangelist to see his empire challenged — following his July denial (from the pulpit of his Grace Cathedral in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio) that he is homosexual and that he inappropriately touched some parishioners, as they have claimed. However, Angley freely revealed an intense interest in vasectomies — that he had long encouraged his flock not to bring offspring into this troubled world. Of young men, Angley said, “Sure, I’d have them uncover themselves [during vasectomy counseling], but I did not handle them at all. … I would look at them, their privates ….” A once-prominent Angley insider said the “prophet” “doesn’t want people to have kids because it would take their time and money away from [the church].”
