Ernest Angley, the 97-year-old glorified conman parading as a so-called reverend, has been on the receiving point of many incriminating allegations, from a murder occurring at a restaurant his church owned to sexual abuse to employing illegal unpaid labor to forcing a 76-year-old believer with dementia to write a check for $340,000. Angley indeed performed illegal genital exams on male congregants, encouraged women to have abortions and men to have vasectomies, faces allegations of running a cult, and even attended a marriage ceremony of a church congreant to a convicted child molester. Sounds like a revolting asshole who would make Jimmy Swaggart recoil in disgust, doesn’t he?
Now a newly public audio recording reveals Angley to be a hypocrite in another classic antigay fashion. While continually lecturing that homosexuality is a sin, and conceivably causing real damage on queer youth whose parents subjected them to Angley’s incoherent ramblings, it turns out the pastor was having gay sex on the side.
An anonymous source supplied the 23-year-old recording to the Akron Beacon Journal. On it, the pastor talks with Rev. Bill Davis. Davis is unsettled with Angley for circulating a rumor about Davis’ wife being “vulgar”, and challenges Angley of having gay sex, which Davis calls “vulgar.”
Angley indicates the story is true — but only the portion where Davis implies Angley and his male sex partner both ejaculated.

As if that’s not sufficient, here’s a former mentee of Angley giving what it was like to be sexually abused by the televangelist:
