A Presbyterian minister has been accused of sexually assaulting at least three men, performing oral sex on them as part of a bizarre ritual.

The Reverend Dr William Weaver had served the Linden Presbyterian Church in Linden, New Jersey, for almost four decades when he was accused by the church of “multiple acts of idolatry and sexual misconduct.”

The allegations relate to claims made by three men, dating back almost 20 years.

A.J. Meeker said that he was 20 years old when he started receiving counselling from Weaver in 2000.

He described entering a bedroom in a house owned by the church, where Weaver would unpack a suitcase holding feathers, stones, buckeyes, a magnetic strip, a coin with an angel or saint printed on it and plastic bags.

Weaver would allegedly ask Meeker to undress and lie down on a bed, before fastening the angel coin to his forehead with the magnetic strip and placing stones on his feet, hands and chest.

“He would then take out the feather and scan my body from my neck to my stomach,” Meeker told My Central Jersey.

Meeker claimed that Weaver would then put his tongue in his mouth “to see if I had anything in my mouth or throat,” before performing oral sex on him.

“He would then ingest my ejaculate and then would spit up multiple pieces of plastic or metal into a ziploc bag,” Meeker said.

He added that after each of the alleged attacks, Weaver “would then hold me and say he loved me and he would protect me, and he would never let anything bad happen to me.”
