In 2019, Prime Minister Scott Morrison stood onstage with Brian Houston at a Hillsong Cult conference. At the time, Brian Houston was under criminal investigation for covering up his father’s violent pedophile rapes.
At the 13:00 mark, Scott Morrison’s wife Jenny states:
It’s an honour to be up here in the middle of Hillsong conference, and we have been coming here a long time, and we used to attend Waterloo congregation.
Waterloo congregation was pastored by pedophile Frank Houston. Waterloo was also where two young children witnessed the ritual murder of a child named Helen Karipidis and subsequently received NSW Victim Services compensation for this trauma.
As AOG Pastor Bob Cotton demands to know: WAS FRANK HOUSTON SCOTT MORRISON’S PASTOR?! Did Frank Houston marry the Morrisons?! Did the Morrisons serve in a church leadership role under pedophile rapist Frank Houston?
I urge journalists to investigate this bombshell that we all seemingly overlooked.
Scott Morrison’s father was a NSW police officer. Scott Morrison lives next door to NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller. The Child Abuse Royal Commission recommended the NSW Police prosecute Brian Houston for covering up Frank Houstons pedophile crimes. But something stopped the NSW Police from doing this. Was there political interference in the police prosecution of Brian Houston? Did the Prime Minister call upon his mate Mick Fuller to interfere in the arrest and prosecution of Brian Houston?
Investigative journalists ought also to look into Tim Stewart, his AOG background (which he told me of), and his influence on the Prime Minister. Why did Scott Morrison ban Australian media from reporting on Tim Stewart?
The Guardian had the balls to ignore the media ban, but stopped short of naming Tim Stewart in the following article:
Is Tim Stewart really a QAnon conspiracy theorist? Was his role in getting the PM to fulfil my request to mention the words ‘ritual abuse’ in his apology speech to abuse victims honourable? Or does he in fact work as one of the agents connected to Commissioner Mick Fuller’s Fixated Person Unit, only pretending to be a right wing extremist in order to lure and entrap whistleblowers who threaten to expose the links between Hillsong, organised child sex trafficking, VIPs, and Costellos Boy Brothel?
And is that a chubbier Tim Stewart in the notorious ‘Holiday in Hawaii while Australia burns’ snapshot in which the Prime Minister flicks a hand sign that makes ritual abuse victims cringe?
Scott Morrison’s mishandling of our bushfires has been a PR disaster which ensures the Australian public will vote for any fucker but him in the next election. But it would be nice to see his career sink into the miry depths of the child trafficking cut-out we know as Hillsong…
The USA False Memory Syndrome Foundation just announced that it has disbanded, so who knows what 2020 brings.
In my free book Eyes Wide Open, I expose the global child trafficking operation coordinated by the CIA for the British Royal family. I explain how the banks have long been used to launder money made from the CIA-coordinated global child trafficking operation and channel proceeds of crime into CIA-created ‘terrorist’ groups and activities. Here are some recent revelations that support my claims, which have emerged since the September 2019 publication of my book.
1. Jeffrey Epstein, CIA Child Sex Trafficker
Here are some facts that have emerged in the Epstein case to support my description of a global child trafficking operation used to compromise VIPs. This case features female predators and ‘baby breeders’:
Virginia Roberts testified that Ghislaine Maxwell was a lesbian pedophile who daily sexually assaulted underage girls and sex slaves.
Ghislaine Maxwell teamed up with Epstein for threesomes with underaged sex trafficked girls.
Ghislaine Maxwell recruited young girls from parks, into prostitution and sex slavery, under the guise of offering modelling careers.
Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein instructed Virginia Roberts to have a baby and sign the newborn over to her perpetrators.
Prince Andrew participated in a sex orgy with multiple international underaged sex trafficked girls on Epstein Island.
Epstein and Maxwell prostituted Virginia Roberts to multiple VIPs including British Royalty, billionaires, a Harvard law professor, and world leaders including ‘a Prime Minister’.
2. Prince Andrew / Pedo Prime Minister Paul Keating Connection
In Eyes Wide Open I detail former Prime Minister Paul Keating’s rape and murder of a 5-year-old boy.
In 2010, Prince Andrew was filmed at Jeffrey Epstein’s New York mansion, waving goodbye to Paul Keating’s daughter, Katherine Keating. Here is a relevant news article:
3. Prince Andrew / Nicole Kidman – CIA Child Trafficking Connection
Nicole Kidman witnessed her pedophile rapist father Antony Kidman beat me unconscious on my birthday. My free book Eyes Wide Open details the wealthy Kidman family’s involvement in the CIA child trafficking operation.
In 1999, pedo Prince Andrew and Nicole Kidman collaborated to campaign against child abuse in the UK. Here is an article documenting this:
Kidman Joins Princely Effort
LONDON (CNN) — Britain’s Prince Andrew and Australian actress Nicole Kidman teamed up Wednesday in a campaign to end child abuse in Great Britain. They were pictured on the cover of celebrity magazine Hello! to publicize the cause.
Inside, Andrew — the chairman of a campaign launched by the British National Society for The Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) — is quoted as saying, “I was staggered to learn that between one and two children die as a result of abuse in Britain every week — and most during their first year of life.” He has been recruiting celebrities like Kidman to help bring attention to the issue.
Kidman, who co-stars in the late Stanley Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut” with her husband Tom Cruise, told the magazine, “Children should be allowed to grow up without fear of cruelty.”
4. Westpac Bank – CIA Child Sex Trafficking Money Launderers
In 2018, I wrote that Australia’s No. 2 bank, Westpac, was under investigation for the very same crimes that the Commonwealth Bank of Australia was fined $700 million for – laundering money from CIA child sex trafficking and channelling this into CIA ‘terror’ activities. Mainstream media did not report this fact which I detailed in Eyes Wide Open.
True to my word, on 20 November 2019, AUSTRAC charged Westpac for 23 million breaches of anti-money laundering and counter-terror finance laws. Westpac was used to launder $11 billion generated from ‘child exploitation’ crimes committed in South East Asia and channelled that money into terror organisations and activities. Here is a relevant mainstream media article:
5. Prime Minister Bob Hawke Hid Labor Party Minister’s Rape of His Daughter
I copped much criticism for disclosing that Australian Prime Ministers Bob Hawke and Gough Whitlam, and various members of Whitlam’s Labor Party cabinet raped me as a young child, including at a pedophile orgy held at Parliament House.
Today, it was reported that Bob Hawke’s daughter, Rosslyn Dillon, was raped 3 times in the 1980s by then Victorian Labor MP Bill Landeryou, and that Bob Hawke prevented his daughter from reporting the rapes to the police, to preserve his political career. (Note: a fellow victim of CIA child trafficking informed me in 2015 that she attended a Satanic Ritual Abuse support group in the USA with Rosslyn Dillon.)
In the very least, this rape coverup indicates that Bob Hawke was not the hero the Australian public revered him as. Bob Hawke sold his own daughter for power. Here is a relevant MSM article:
6. Justice James Wood Grants Parole to Labor Party Pedophile
My book Eyes Wide Open details the accusations against Royal Commissioner and alleged pedophile James Wood who covered up the CIA’s child trafficking activities in Sydney involving Daruk Government Boys Home, Hillsong Church, Ivan Milat, and Costellos Boy Brothel in Kings Cross.
In December 2019, James Wood chaired the Parole Board which released pedophile Labor politician Milton Orkopoulos who was serving a minimum sentence for raping boys. Here is a relevant news article:
7. FBI Confirm Existence of McMartin Preschool SRA Tunnels & CIA’s Involvement in Child Trafficking Operation
On 25 October 2019, the FBI released documents relating to the ‘Finders-Keepers’ case. This official FBI release included documents acknowledging the existence of the McMartin preschool tunnels, Satanic Ritual Abuse, plus the CIA’s involvement in child sex trafficking. Click on this Twitter link to view the file:
As I explained in my book, the Bronfmann family were integral to the British Royal family’s global drug and human trafficking operation. In April 2019, Clare Bronfmann pleaded guilty to financing the NXIVM global child sex trafficking operation which the mainstream press whitewashed as a weird sex cult. I well detailed this case in my free book Eyes Wide Open.
According to today’s news reports, NXIVM front man, Keith Rainier, was secretly taped stating: “Here’s the thing, I’ve had people killed because of my beliefs — or because of their beliefs.” The deaths of four women have been linked to Rainere. Here is a relevant news article:
9. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s CIA Child Trafficking Connection
Prime Minister Scott Morrison was neighbours with NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller prior to moving into Kirribilli House. In December 2019, it was reported that Scott Morrison used his connection to Mick Fuller to interfere with a NSW Police investigation into one of his Liberal Party ministers. Similarly, Scott Morrison has used his influence to interfere with the Police charging Hillsong Church cult guru Brian Houston with covering up his father’s pedophile crimes.
I have long campaigned to expose the role of Frank Houston and his CIA-funded child trafficking cut-out Hillsong Church. Upon Morrison’s election as Prime minister, I protested his connections with my Freemason perpetrators in the Sutherland Shire. Consequently, our own Prime Minister Scott Morrison collaborated with Mick Fuller to silence me by sending police agents to infiltrate my private life and set me up for false arrest and incarceration in Mick Fuller’s Fixated Person Unit. I detail this clandestine Gestapo-style system in my book.
At what point will I be believed and acknowledged? How much circumstantial evidence must emerge before I am vindicated?
Things are being revealed thick and fast. Read my predicted 2020 news headlines in my free book Eyes Wide Open.
Dec 18 Update
We couldn’t even see the year out without further major pedo news which confirms the content of my book:
NAB Money Launderers
Mainstream news today confirmed that Australia’s No. 3 bank, NAB, is under AUSTRAC investigation for breaches of anti-money laundering legislation. Here is a link to the story:
A decade ago, I was mocked during a Forensic Psychology class at Bond University for defending the existence of the McMartin Preschool tunnels. The lecturer, Katarina Fritzon, used the McMartin Satanic Ritual Abuse case involving perpetrator Lt. Col. Michael Aquino as an example of ‘Satanic Panic’ and ‘False Memory’ and she used the discredited ‘research’ of CIA psychologist Elizabeth Loftus to support her argument.
Being a victim of both SRA and Lt. Col. Michael Aquino, and having witnessed clear film footage of the McMartin tunnels being bulldozed on Australian mainstream TV news – I couldn’t just sit there and allow a university lecturer to fill the heads of a new generation of therapists with lies. So, I spoke up.
That marked the beginning of the end of my psychology career. A comprehensive account of what followed, and what Bond University did to my career, can be read in my free book Eyes Wide Open, which may be accessed HERE.
Recently (25 October 2019) the FBI released documents relating to the ‘Finders-Keepers’ case. Click on this Twitter link to view the file:
This official FBI release included documents acknowledging the existence of the McMartin preschool tunnels, Satanic Ritual Abuse, the CIA’s involvement in child sex trafficking, and even the microchipping of kidnapped child sex trafficking victims. Here is a plan of the tunnels, taken from the FBI released documents, that I was mocked for saying existed:
And here is an FBI document evidencing the CIA’s involvement in the global child sex trafficking operation:
MORE FALSE ACCUSATIONS
This release of evidence picked the scab off an old wound, and reminded me of the lies Bond University psychology perpetrators told to the psychology registration board about me. These lies were again echoed in the following submission by my perpetrator to Google, to continue the coverup and prevent the public from knowing Bond University’s connection to SRA and pedophilia in Australia:
Here is my response to Google’s defamatory publication about me:
I did not stalk/harass any Bond University lecturer. I ceased all contact with Bond psychology staff the moment I discovered their false and vexatious notification against me in late 2010. I then pursued the appropriate legal avenues of complaint and appeal, thinking there was such a thing as justice. There is zero evidence of my having stalked/harassed any Bond staff including Fritzon, and no such evidence was ever put to the Psychology Board. Fritzon’s lack of evidence is why this Bond University perpetrator lecturer has resorted yet again to lying about me in clandestine complaints to third parties.
I was a parole officer, have zero criminal history, and zero history of violence. This lecturer did not pursue legal action because she had no evidence to support her claims, and any case would expose her guilt plus her lack of academic integrity. For example, I would produce emails in which she groomed me, used sexually inappropriate language, and slandered her Bond University lecturer colleague Betty Headley to me when I was her Bond University student.
I never ‘lost’ my registration. Upon advice from both my GP and a Bond University psychiatry lecturer that Katarina Fritzon was “stitching me up”, I refused to submit to a health assessment based on Bond University’s claims that my disability (resulting from a vestibular stroke), plus my child abuse history, made me unfit to work as a psychologist. This false and vexatious notification against me was submitted in direct response to my exposing Bond University’s coverup of a child sex trafficking operation involving a local child protection services office.
Appealing to the Queensland Police for assistance was, and is, not an option, since Katarina Fritzon employed Gold Coast detective Terry Goldsworthy, who replaced convicted pedophile Paul Wilson as head of Bond University Criminology, to lie to the Psychology Board by fabricating communication with police and telling the Board I was a perpetrator, instead of a child victim, of my horrendous child abuse.
To place things in conspiracy perspective, Katarina Fritzon is the lecturer who coauthored a textbook with her close Bond University colleague Professor Paul Wilson who was subsequently convicted and sentenced for pedophilia:
The character and competence of Bond University lecturer Katarina Fritzon, and the constant failure of the Australian psychology industry to hold the UK import accountable, is well demonstrated in Fritzon’s recent act of plagiarism. Plagiarism is a serious offence and a breach of every institutions ethical code. If a student were to commit plagiarism, that student could be expelled from university and refused professional registration with their relevant industry board.
To put it plainly, Frtizon was sent a university student’s thesis to mark. Fritzon took that student’s work and presented it as her work within her own research article, instead of acknowledging it as the thesis student’s work. When the thesis student from the other university complained, Fritzon had to issue an embarrassing public retraction.
Fritzon tried to explain away her plagiarism by saying she was careless and got a couple of papers mixed up. Er, no… that simply does not happen. Psychology research is a highly methodical and organised process. Psychology is mainly research and statistics. Psychology sets the standard for all academic research. Psychology thesis students spend upwards of 2 years conducting research, writing the thesis, and going over every reference with a fine comb. Psychologists are the most pedantic when it comes to referencing. So, there is no way Forensic Psychologist Fritzon accidentally plagiarised.
Here is an article detailing Fritzon’s plagiarism offence:
Authors retract paper on psychopathic traits in bosses
A paper on the prevalence of cruel social behavior in the corporate world has been retracted, following an investigation at the authors’ university. According to the senior author, she inadvertently paraphrased a dissertation on the same topic that did not belong to her student and co-author.
Fritzon told Retraction Watch the paper drew largely from the introduction to Brooks’s doctoral dissertation. Along with Brooks’ research, it received media attention worldwide. But Fritzon told us that in October 2016 she received a complaint from another university about the work:
[a] PhD student at that University found some sentences in the review article that were similar to a passage in her PhD document.
Fritzon declined to name either the university or the student.
The complaint triggered an investigation by Bond University that ended in February 2017, Fritzon said, and recommended retraction. The notice, published June 16, 2017, doesn’t say much besides:
Following a withdrawal request from the Authors and the Authors’ institution, we are retracting the paper. We have been informed in our decision-making by the guidance of COPE guidelines on retractions.
The journal’s publisher, Taylor & Francis, told Retraction Watch that they received a retraction request from Fritzon in November 2016, followed by a similar request from Bond.
Whether the Bond investigation looked specifically at the issue of plagiarism is unclear. But Fritzon — who in March 2016 served as an external examiner for the unidentified student’s dissertation — told us she had mistakenly paraphrased the other student when she meant to paraphrase Brooks. She attributed the mistake to “carelessness” and said she has apologized to the student. She added that Brooks received his PhD in June 2017 and that:
There was no question of any wrong-doing on [Brooks’s] part.
A spokesperson for Bond University told us it could not respond to our request for comment at this time, because the school was on break.
A page-based error
Fritzon told us:
At the time that I reviewed the student’s work I was also reviewing Nathan’s draft PhD document and unfortunately it appears that two pages from the two documents have become transposed. Either this has occurred on my desk, or it has occurred in the print room when picking up the documents. I can’t be clear but it is obvious when reading the sentences side by side that I was paraphrasing the sentence for the review article thinking that it was Nathan’s work that I was paraphrasing.
The content in question was a review of an existing theory – the theory would have been described by both students as their PhDs were obviously on a similar topic – corporate psychopathy.
She added that she and Brooks have rewritten or removed the problematic parts and re-submitted the paper to the journal:

By John Ferguson, Weedkend Australian, 19 Oct 2019
The globetrotting lifestyle of Hillsong Church founder Brian Houston is revealed in his communications with the faithful. But the church has failed to explain how Mr Houston’s adventures across many countries are being funded or how much he is being paid.
Mr Houston returns to Australia at the weekend and parishioners have been told he is likely to attend Sunday services. It is expected he will face questioning in Australia over claims the US rejected him as a guest of President Donald Trump at a White House function with Scott Morrison.
Mr Houston, who is under police investigation over his handling of historical child sex abuse committed by his father, communicates regularly via Instagram with his followers in the church, posting travelogue photographs of his movements. Police inquiries relate to abuse of children by his father, Frank. It was reported on by the child sex abuse royal commission.
Since March 30, Mr Houston has posted visits by him and wife Bobbie to cities and countries including London, Wales, Italy, Germany, New York, Paris and Nazareth. At least one of those postings related to a trip with a family member.
The Weekend Australian is not suggesting Mr Houston, a close friend of the Prime Minister, is doing anything wrong by travelling the world, [pffft… I am] in many cases coinciding with church events, but the church has declined to say how the trips have been funded.
The Weekend Australian was this week denied an interview with the evangelist. A spokesman said there had been strong international growth in the church requiring his travel.
In 2010, Mr Houston and the church provided a detailed breakdown of what he and Bobbie were earning. Back then, he earned a total of $300,000, plus the use of a luxury car, making him one of the world’s highest-paid pastors. Hillsong has been under pressure over its overt emphasis on materialism as a reward for faith.
Churchgoers in Melbourne were told last Sunday that Mr Houston was due back in Australia by the weekend after three months overseas. The church is increasingly influential on a global scale, attracting millions of listeners to its religious music and an estimated 130,000 people attend services weekly around the world.
NSW police confirmed this week they were still investigating Mr Houston’s handling of child sex abuse offences committed by his father, who died in 2004. Frank Houston was a serial sex abuser and one of his victims, Brett Sengstock, 58, is fighting Brian Houston over the issue.
Hillsong and Brian Houston stridently maintain the Hillsong leader has done nothing wrong, claiming he acted in the best interests of the boy repeatedly abused by Frank Houston in 1970. Hillsong had then not been formed [yes it had – it just changed names] — Brian Houston, head of the Assemblies of God from 1997 to 2009, founded Hillsong in 1983.
With the support of Greens MP David Shoebridge, Mr Sengstock is not surrendering. “I am looked at like a leper,’’ he said. “They just hammered me. He (Brian Houston) just wiped me.’’
UNBELIEVABLE. Brian Houston lied to the child abuse Royal Commission in 2014, claiming his pedophile father Frank Houston did not deliver any church sermons after 1999. Yet a 2004 recording proves Frank Houston did deliver a sermon in the Maitland Christian Church. During this recorded sermon, Frank Houston publicly displayed his admiration and lust for boys. Here are some relevant excerpts from a story by Joanne McCarthy, the Newcastle Herald journalist who instigated the Royal Commission.
Frank Houston tells Hunter congregation his wife ‘went to the Lord’ at a McDonald’s restaurant
by Joanne McCarthy
Pedophile and his enabler: Frank and Hazel Houston in 2004. Both now burning in Hell.
… The recorded sermon challenges Brian Houston’s evidence to the child abuse royal commission in 2014 that Frank Houston was “stood down instantly” after admitting child sex offences, and “never, ever preached again anywhere after I confronted him in my office in mid to late November, 1999”.
Maitland Christian Church Pastor Bob Cotton, who can be heard on the recording answering Frank Houston’s questions, said it was more evidence backing his concerns about Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s very public support of Brian Houston, despite an ongoing police investigation into how Mr Houston and the Assemblies of God responded to the Frank Houston allegations.
Hero Maitland Christian Church Pastor Bob Cotton, the only AOG pastor in Australia who supported Frank Houston’s victims.
In the recording Frank Houston talks directly to young boys in the church, including “This curly-headed young man… what a fetching young fellow he is. Curly hair, sort of. Good looking. It’s not your fault you’re good looking. Thank God you are. Who wants to be ugly when you can be good looking?” He also spoke about how he had seen a “significant number of young people who were slain in the Holy Spirit” during “great revivals”, where the people “that very often get smitten by the Holy Spirit are young people”. He referred to a 14-year-old boy who had a “revival in his heart” in New Zealand that also revived numbers at Frank Houston’s then church. Mr Houston told the Maitland church he felt “quite nostalgic” but “memory can be a very good thing. It can stir something in you and create desire, which is a step into something God will fulfil in your life”.
Mr Cotton said he was horrified to listen to the recording and hear the many direct communications between Frank Houston and boys in the church. “Betrayal? That’s an understatement. I felt, and still feel, gutted like a fish,” Mr Cotton said.
Hillsong Church pastor Brian Houston clearly lied to the Royal commission hearing in 2014 about his child raping father, Frank Houston.
In his evidence to the royal commission Brian Houston said that by 1999, when Brett Sengstock’s allegation that Frank Houston had sexually abused him from the age of seven was raised with him, he was aware that “Frank was in the early stages of dementia”.
“I am also aware that his memory deteriorated very quickly because of dementia after 2000,” Brian Houston said in his statement to the royal commission.
In his book Live, Love, Lead, released in June, 2015 before the royal commission delivered its findings into Australian Christian Churches and Hillsong four months later, Brian Houston said his father “never ministered again” after November, 1999.
“He descended quickly into old age as the shame and torment of his dark past overtook him,” Mr Houston wrote.
“I spent a lot of time with Frank in his final years. I don’t agree with the assessment of his mental state that was presented by some to the royal commission,” Mr Cotton said.
“Anyone who listens to that sermon would struggle with the idea he was a man suffering from dementia to the extent that he couldn’t still deliver a sermon.”
If you support Hillsong after reading this article, you’re either dirty – or a fucking idiot…
Open letter to the Members of the National Executive of the Australian Christian Churches.
I am writing to you again, as I did just over 12 months ago to appeal to you to assist Mr Brett Sengstock, a survivor of childhood sex abuse by clergy and, as you well know, a victim of our Frank Houston (dec).
I am assured by the NSW State Secretary that you did receive my original email of 29th September 2018 and further, it has been forwarded to you again through him recently yet I still have had no reply so I feel writing an open letter is now not only appropriate but also my only hope of bringing proper attention to this matter that you appear to have chosen to ignore. It read as follows:
I wish to bring a serious matter to your attention and would be grateful if you would forward this to John McMartin and the National Executive.
Brett Sengstock was a child victim of Frank Houston’s sex crimes. He was identified at the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse, Case Study 18 by the pseudonym “AHA”.
It has come to my attention that Brett is suffering Stage Four Lymphoma and, as an invalid pensioner, is struggling financially because of the additional strain on his limited finances caused by his ongoing medical expenses. In short, he is dying and is broke.
I am hoping that we, as a Christian Movement, may be able to help Brett financially.
At the Royal Commission there was never any question raised about Frank Houston’s guilt in regard to the sex crimes committed against Brett when he was a little boy in Coogee. From the evidence tendered, everyone now knows that Frank Houston was a serial paedophile with multiple victims in New Zealand as well as Australia and the crimes committed against Brett were both serious and numerous. The impact on Brett’s life from this abuse has been devastating and ongoing.
Despite the Executive of the time knowing all these facts, they chose to conceal Frank Houston’s crimes from the Police and the Movement. In doing so they effectively took away any hope Brett would ever have of obtaining justice.
I am aware that in recent times Brett sought compensation from the Australian Christian Churches for the crimes he suffered at the hands of one of our most highly respected pastors. I understand that we, as a movement vigorously defended ourselves against his claim and won.
Now, we have a situation, where a Survivor, sexually abused by one of our own, is suffering a terminal illness and is in financial hardship to the point where he has to beg from strangers.
With all this in mind, I find it shameful that we have given huge amounts of money to top tier law firms to defend ourselves against a claim made by a victim who should have been shown compassion and mercy instead.
I appeal to you, and the current Executives, that even if the ACC through loopholes did not have a legal obligation to compensate Brett we definitely have a moral obligation before God and man to help him now.
I intend to take up a special offering for Brett in my church this Sunday and hope that you could encourage others to do the same.
Maitland Christian Church
Since writing the above quoted letter to you, public awareness of Brett Sengstock’s appalling treatment at the hands of the church has only increased. Please refer to the following links where his story is told on 60 minutes, mentioned on two occasions in Parliament by Mr David Shoebridge MLC, and also in a recent article by Joanne McCarthy in the Newcastle Herald.
How much better it would have been if we had acted with mercy and compassion at the earliest opportunity instead of layering further abuse on an innocent and vulnerable victim. Regardless of this monumental failure I believe that it is still not too late for us to do the right thing. I would again ask that we do something collectively for Brett Sengstock and take up an offering to support this good man who has suffered more than we could possibly imagine. At the very least would you please make our fellow ministers aware of Brett’s “go fund me” page https://www.gofundme.com/f/justiceforbrettand through them grant our congregations the opportunity to directly provide the financial support that Brett should have already received.
As it stands, Brett’s abuse at the hands of Frank Houston cannot be compensated under the National Redress Scheme so his only hope for compensation for a life stolen is the generosity of others. Surely we can find it in our hearts to help a victim of one of our own. Let us not fail him again.

It’s a slap in the face for sexual abuse victims. It’s a slap in the face to the Royal Commission into institutional child sexual abuse, and it’s a slap in the face to the Australian Laws. It makes Mr Morrison’s apology to sexual abuse victims invalid.
In NSW Parliament, on 24 September 2019, David Shoebridge stated (23:52):
On 23 October last year I spoke in this place about the repeated sexual abuse of a boy by Frank Houston in Sydney in the 1970s. On that occasion I referred to this boy has AHA as he was referred to in the Royal Commission. That boy is now a man called Brett Sengstock, a man who broke his silence to call publicly for justice; a brave man who deserves justice. The man who sexually assaulted Brett was Frank Houston, often known as the father of Hillsong, a serial paedophile. His son Brian Houston is the current leader of the Hillsong Church and best friend of Prime Minister Scott Morrison. Our Prime Minister is so enamoured of Brian Houston that he asked for him to be part of Australia’s delegation to the United States, only to be refused by the Trump administration.
Brian Houston and Hillsong’s response to the royal commission’s damning findings regarding the church, included the following:
This Royal Commission did not directly involve Hillsong Church. The abuse committed by the late Frank Houston, the father of our senior pastor Brian Houston, occurred many years before Hillsongchurch existed, when he was a credentialed Assemblies of God minister in New Zealand.
This was also their legal defence against the claims from Brett Sengstock for compensation. This church, whose so-called “love offerings” for visiting pastors can raise hundreds of thousands of dollars each Sunday, avoided paying fair compensation to Brett on a legal technicality.
These “love offerings” are part of what make this brand of Pentecostalism so lucrative. While a pastor cannot take money from their own church they can visit a neighbouring church and receive direct love offerings in cash or by cheque. This money will often be funnelled to a “public benevolent institution” that the pastor has registered in his or her name. This then pays them a handsome tax free wage and fringe benefits. In short, these “love offerings” are a con. Hillsong did eventually give some money to Brett for his damaged life and repeated assaults. He was promised a mere $10,000 hush payment at Thornleigh McDonald’s by Frank Houston and Nabi Saleh. Even that cash was forthcoming only after a call with Brian Houston. Brett’s testimony to the Royal Commission about this is illuminating. He said:
About two months after my meeting with Pastor Frank at McDonalds, I telephoned Brian Houston as I had not yet received any money from Pastor Frank. We had a conversation to the following effect:
Me: “What’s happening with the payment I was promised? I agreed to forgive your father.”
Brian: “Yes, ok, I’ll get the money to you. There’s no problem … You know, it’s your fault all of this happened. You tempted my father.”
When Brett finally received a cheque from Hillsong there was no note from Brian, no apology, no compassion. There is a clear continuity in leadership from Frank to Brian of this church. In fact, the church leadership who failed to report Frank’s abuse to the police despite holding numerous meetings to discuss the extent of his abuse in Australia and New Zealand, continue to lead the church. The Hillsong Church eventually stripped Frank Houston of his credentials but it allowed him to retire on a generous pension and under a cloak of secrecy about his sexual offending. It has never publicly referred to the assaults on Brett. Its only statement referred to:
… claims of a serious moral failure against Frank Houston. The incidents that have been investigated happened more than 30 years ago and Frank has admitted to the failure with great remorse.
The church has since falsely claimed that Frank did not preach again after this. This claim is clearly incorrect. I am aware of multiple occasions in which he was a visiting pastor at affiliated churches, with unhindered access to church families and their children. In this role he continued to receive so-called love offerings.
Brett deserves so much more than this cold, brutal dismissal from Hillsong. This church, and its significant wealth, was built on the preaching of Frank Houston, whose violence and disregard for Brett does not seem to trouble Frank’s son and the current church leader. A church that reaps millions of dollars in tax-free love offerings cannot find the compassion or decency to pay Brett fair compensation for the harm done to him. Whatever the legalities, this is morally corrupt.
I will finish by placing on the record what Brett wanted to tell his elected representatives about Scott Morrison’s invitation to Brian Houston:
It’s a slap in the face for sexual abuse victims. It’s a slap in the face to the Royal Commission into institutional child sexual abuse, and it’s a slap in the face to the Australian Laws. It makes Mr Morrison’s apology to sexual abuse victims invalid.
