Get thee hence!

Aracely Meza, a 52 year-old ‘pastor’ has been sentenced to 99 years in jail in the US for ordering that food be withheld from a two year-old boy for 21 days, because she thought he was possessed by the devil. The boy died.

She headed a church called Iglesia Internacional Jesus es el Rey in Dallas.

A witness claimed that Meza controlled her congregation, and said to anyone who questioned her: “The devil is speaking through you. You’re the devil.”
