I have never been a fan of former Hillsong Pastor Carl Lentz. While I do like Hillsong, Lentz left a bad taste in my mouth after he bent the knee to BLM and preached very liberal sermons. So it is no surprise to me that a snake like him is being accused of sexual abuse by his former nanny.
Lentz lost his job at New York City’s Hillsong Church after numerous “moral failures” were revealed, which included cheating on his wife, Laura, several times.
Activist Mommy reports:
In an extensive post on Medium, Leona Kimes revealed that Lentz repeatedly abused her while she worked with his family between 2010 and 2017.
Kimes, now a co-pastor at Hillsong Boston with her husband Josh Kimes, said that the experience led her to seek “intense therapy” after she moved to Boston.
“While there were joyful moments during that time, no one knew that I also experienced a great deal of pain,” Kimes recalled. “During the years I spent serving them, I was subjected to manipulation, control, bullying, abuse of power, and sexual abuse. Having told almost no one before this, I am just now able to share what I experienced in their home as the result of intense therapy.”
“The abuse of power started small,” she explained. “Hours would increase beyond belief. Often I would work from 7 am to 11 pm. Schedules were switched last minute without even attempting to confirm my availability. Tasks kept getting added and added to my load. They made fun of me constantly, even calling me Cinderella, which they said was their way of loving me.”
She said, “The sexual abuse started small, too. My pastor would look at me and say, “Gurl, you’re looking good. You’ve been in the gym?” There was a lot of flirty teasing like this. I had been around long enough to know that’s just how he was with women. But after a while, the comments started to escalate. I remember being told, “after you have kids, we’ll buy you a boob job.” Looking back, I know I felt embarrassed, but I didn’t know it was wrong then. It hadn’t occurred to me that I had a right to not be spoken to like that, by my pastor or anyone else.”
Then the abuse turned physical.
“While he never had intercourse with me and never kissed me, I was physically violated by his unwanted and repeated sexual touching of my intimate areas,” Kimes shuddered. “I froze. Every time, I froze.”
She said that she complained about his behavior back in 2016, however, the Lentz family “blamed and silenced” her.
“I was the problem,” she said. “But they kept me in my role, and I worked harder than ever after that.”
“I tried to escape by telling him I would find a new job outside of church,” Kimes added. “Even though my husband was on staff, too, I thought it would be the best solution. I will never forget my pastor standing over me with a stern look, asking me who would possibly hire me. Without a college degree, he asked, what kind of job did I think I could get in New York City? I won’t forget how that made me feel, so alone, so worth absolutely nothing.”
Lentz has denied all allegations and claims to have “irrefutable proof the events did not happen as they are being described.”

On Friday, Rep. Liz Cheney admitted to ABC News anchor Jon Karl that she voted for former President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. She added that she regrets it through.
Honestly, I am truly shocked to hear that the RINO voted for Trump. As much as she hates Trump and true Conservatives, I would have expected her to sabotage and vote for Biden.
Karl asked, “Did you vote for Donald Trump in 2020?”
