João Teixeira de Faria, a popular Brazilian faith healer known as ‘John of God’ who was formerly promoted by Oprah, recently had 99 years added to his prison sentence for the rape of eight vulnerable individuals who sought his spiritual help between 2010 and 2018. John’s prison sentence now totals more than 370 years for mass sexual abuse and rape. In 2018, over 300 women, including his own daughter, accused him of sexual abuse after seeking his help.

These girls were murdered after ten years of giving birth. We have got a number of testimonies.”
