Pastor Batters His Wife to the ER

Posted by Business in Ghana on July 11, 2009

A man of the cloth and of God, committed the unthinkable, probably under the influence of the devil, when he battered his wife severely, kicked her in the head many times with his shoes on and then called 911 to report that his wife was choking him to death. The pastor is twice the size of his wife.  Pastor Maxwell Asenso of the Word of Life Gospel Church was put behind bars for 2 days on Wednesday July 1, 2009 and released pending prosecution after his wife was rushed to the Shady Grove Emergency Room in Maryland with severe injuries to her head. She lodged a formal complaint at a Potomac police station after she was discharged from the hospital that not only had the pastor verbally and physically abused her with his fists he also kicked her in the head several times causing a severe concussion.

    Whoever wrote this article is an unscrupulous idiot! First of all, I hope you know that reporters/journalists are under LEGAL OBLIGATION to report the truth. You had better get yourself a good lawyer, because a serious charge of defamation of character will be brought against and the news agency that employs you very soon. And this is NOT an empty threat!! You need to desist from writing cheap, unfounded, rubbish just to sensationalize people and get cheap publicity.
    First of all, the pastor’s wife in question is TWICE the size of her husband (not vise-versa, as you put it). Secondly the pastor NEVER spent a day in jail. Thirdly the pastor has NEVER, and will NEVER have an affair with a member of his congregation. He is too dignified a man of God for that. Pastor Asenso is a man of exemplerary character. A man of dignity, whose reputation both in the Christian and secular circles is beyond reproach. His church members love and adore him.
    Be careful about slandering a man of God – especially one without reproach. Those who slander men of God place themselves under an unimaginable curse. Or perhaps you are being paid some dirty money to slander the man of God, right? Well, remember what happened to Judas for maligning Jesus. Your “thirty pieces of silver” will not go very far!

    This is a deliberate hit job done that can only be done by man without conscience! This is the worst case of gutter journalism aimed at defaming an innocent man. You may have recieved your wages for this dirty job but your enjoyment is bound to be shortlived. Expect to face the law for your reckless act! I hope you have the money to hire the best lawyer in town because this bullcrap of a job will need the best lawyering to ‘defend’. With brains like yours committed to such dirty, indefensible job, is it any wonder that we as a people continue to wallow in darkness? The mind is a terrible thing to waste indeed! Pathetic!!!!!!

    whoever published this article must go and kneel down before the pastor and ask for forgiveness,else Gods punishment is comming on you and your family.Curse be on you and your decendants in the name of Jesus.If you know how to slander it is not on the man of God.Go back and check you facts where did you attend school of journalism,you have to go back to school and learn ethics of professional journalism.You have infact disgraced Ghanaians and you have to resign.I pray that God will make you like hedgehoc and pool of water and sweep you away with his broom of distruction.

    Mr publisher, you must be very stupid to have fallen for vida Asenso’s evil plan to destroy her husband. she is just using you to destroy an innocent man of God. The pastor in question is innocent, he will never hit nor cheat on his wife. Get your facts right next time, listen to both parties before you write. I really pity people that depend on this website for information. you have just proven to the world that you are not realiable and you publish rubbish. Tell your friend Vida, to start praying for God’s forgiveness.

    you know people needs to get two sides to story first before publishing anything so defamatory,we are in the UNITED STATES, and facts prevails not lies.That man is of God,he will not cheat or hit his wife,but may God forgive her and the publisher of this untrue story,you should go down on your knees and start praying for God’s forgiveness because you can not toil with God’s annoited.Im praying for Pastor Asenso that God will free him from this mess his estrange wife has put him through, and God will reveal the real devil here which they are portraying him to be.May God have mercy.

    I am in total agreement with the rebuttals to the gutter journalism potrayed by the writer of the article which is at best one-sided and twisted to defame Pastor Assenso. We all know the wife as a gold-digger, pathological liar with a checkered history as a “femme fatale”. We are all praying to the almighty God to let the truth prevail and I believe that that something good would come out of this—-God has revealed Vida for what she is—and the scales would fall off Pastoe Assenso’s eye to enable him get rid of this modern day Jezebel or most aptly a Delilah.

      We must becareful the way we protect/defend people. The Pastor is a human being like any body else. He may have done something wrong against the wife. Because there is no smoke without fire. Been a Pastor does not mean you are without sin.No one knows what happen behind close doors. So we have to becareful when defending people like the Pastor,because he his a “Pastor”.We live in United State where we see many big name pastors commiting horrific crime in the name of God I dont want to mention names. So dont just say he his a Pastor so there is nothing blemishes about him. God is the only one who knows what he did to the wife. The truth will surely come out.

        this is not about protecting/ defending people. we all know vida asenso and what she is capable off. vida asenso can lie with a straight face. well the fire behojnd this smoke is the character of vida and those around her.

      • nyarkoa said

        Nobody is saying the Pastor is a perfect human being(to air is human).Talking abt this case,we all kn what Vida Asenso is capable of doing(those who kn her from her past (“Australia”)will tell u what she did to her first two husbands.I just feel soo sorry for her friends…it’s just a matter of time ;she will definitely show her true colors(she can’t pretend forever).I knew her in Australia very well b/4 she moved to the states…..

    The devil you know is better than the angel you dont know. So please dont jump into conclusion. Because been a Pastor does not make you a unique person. You can also be tempted. Did you ask why they are both divorce from their previous marriage. So please dont be one sided call a spade a spade. I am not against the pastor but remember they have three children so regardless of what the outcome will be they will still be seen each other because of the children involve. The criminal charges against the pastor are serious. We need to look at the whole scenario from the law not from the social aspect as a “Pastor”

    For people that believe in not being judgemental, everyone seems to be judging the Pastor and his wife. No one is perfect and that goes for both of them also. We all have skeletons in our closets & have done things we (including me & all of you)regret doing in our past. As humans, we will pass through many storms in our lifetime and I learned from the Pastor himself that Jesus forgives all if you ask. So I emplore everyone reading & blogging on this case to PRAY for both of them. They are both wonderful human beings and I know God will prevail in both of their lives.
