Hillsong Pedo Frank Houston Publicly Lusted Over Boys in his Last Sermon

UNBELIEVABLE. Brian Houston lied to the child abuse Royal Commission in 2014, claiming his pedophile father Frank Houston did not deliver any church sermons after 1999. Yet a 2004 recording proves Frank Houston did deliver a sermon in the Maitland Christian Church. During this recorded sermon, Frank Houston publicly displayed his admiration and lust for boys. Here are some relevant excerpts from a story by Joanne McCarthy, the Newcastle Herald journalist who instigated the Royal Commission.

Maitland Christian Church Pastor Bob Cotton, who can be heard on the recording answering Frank Houston’s questions, said it was more evidence backing his concerns about Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s very public support of Brian Houston, despite an ongoing police investigation into how Mr Houston and the Assemblies of God responded to the Frank Houston allegations.

In the recording Frank Houston talks directly to young boys in the church, including “This curly-headed young manwhat a fetching young fellow he is. Curly hair, sort of. Good looking. It’s not your fault you’re good looking. Thank God you are. Who wants to be ugly when you can be good looking?” He also spoke about how he had seen a “significant number of young people who were slain in the Holy Spirit” during “great revivals”, where the people “that very often get smitten by the Holy Spirit are young people”. He referred to a 14-year-old boy who had a “revival in his heart” in New Zealand that also revived numbers at Frank Houston’s then church. Mr Houston told the Maitland church he felt “quite nostalgic” but “memory can be a very good thing. It can stir something in you and create desire, which is a step into something God will fulfil in your life”.

Mr Cotton said he was horrified to listen to the recording and hear the many direct communications between Frank Houston and boys in the church. “Betrayal? That’s an understatement. I felt, and still feel, gutted like a fish,” Mr Cotton said.

Challenge: Hillsong Church founder Brian Houston speaks in New York in 2013, before he and his church were challenged during a royal commission hearing in 2014 about how they responded to child sex allegations against his father, Frank Houston.

Hillsong Church pastor Brian Houston clearly lied to the Royal commission hearing in 2014 about his child raping father, Frank Houston.

In his evidence to the royal commission Brian Houston said that by 1999, when Brett Sengstock’s allegation that Frank Houston had sexually abused him from the age of seven was raised with him, he was aware that “Frank was in the early stages of dementia”.

“I am also aware that his memory deteriorated very quickly because of dementia after 2000,” Brian Houston said in his statement to the royal commission.

In his book Live, Love, Lead, released in June, 2015 before the royal commission delivered its findings into Australian Christian Churches and Hillsong four months later, Brian Houston said his father “never ministered again” after November, 1999.

“He descended quickly into old age as the shame and torment of his dark past overtook him,” Mr Houston wrote.

“I spent a lot of time with Frank in his final years. I don’t agree with the assessment of his mental state that was presented by some to the royal commission,” Mr Cotton said.

“Anyone who listens to that sermon would struggle with the idea he was a man suffering from dementia to the extent that he couldn’t still deliver a sermon.”
