A topless pastor invited a group of children to slash his back with a knife as part of a bizarre lesson on Easter.
The full uncensored clip, which was filmed Monday and is too disturbing to reproduce, depicts Jaddeus Dempsey from the Impact City Church in Pataskala, Ohio, pull his shirt off before brandishing the blade.
One youngster can be heard to exclaim No! in shock – while another frightened girl screams during the class on the forgiveness of Christ.
Another young voice asks Are you serious?
Bizarrely, a second adult then approaches as a boy weighs up whether to knife the pastor. And instead of calling a halt to the twisted stunt, he lets it continue, saying: Im serious. Be very gentle.
The boy reaches to cut him,before backing down and handing the blade to another youngster.
He runs the knife across the topless pastors shoulder blade twice, and then says Its bleeding, although no actual blood is seen.
Before the knife is brandished, Dempsey let at least nine children spit on him, having told them they would not face any repercussions for their behavior.
Three children are then allowed to punch Dempsey hard across the face, with the pastor standing stiffly as he was attacked.
The video was widely shared after being posted online, and sparked outrage among parents who send their children to the church.
One mom called Mandy – whose son was one of those handed the knife – said she rushed to the center on hearing what had happened.
She told 10TV: He was upset. He thought he was in trouble.
When I explained to him Im not upset with you, I just want you to know that the things that happened here wasnt OK.
Dempsey has since issued a Facebook videoRead More – Source[contf] [contfnew]
