Pastor Jose Santiago, leader of the House of Prayer Monte Santo in Puerto Rico, has a past life in gay porn. As Gustavo Arrango, he starred in at least five hardcore films for famed director Kristen Bjorn. And he looks much happier wielding - or savouring - an impressive erection than he does spewing fire and brimstone.
Santiago claims that his past has been brought forward in an attempt to discredit his role in the church, his relationship with God, and his new-found heterosexuality. Now 33, he claims to have given up being gay and his porn career after being called by God seven years ago.
In those days I was gay and participated in homosexual activities, but God touched me, God transformed me, God gave me a woman who loves me and she loves my past.
I haven't seen any of these films in years. I don't receive any money for them and it's part of a life that is over. We have all done things we regret. That part of my life was before I knew God.
Appearing in porn is really nothing to be ashamed of, it can be as demanding a calling as preaching. And it seems quite likely that the lusty Arrango might attract more converts than the dour Santiago.
