Suspected Sex Offender Sin Quirin Leaves Ministry; Al Jourgensen remains silent
In January 2020, ministry guitarist Sinhue “Sin” Quirin – who has also been on bands such as American Head Charge, Revolting Cocks, Lords of Acid and Society 1 – was charged with having sex with two women. while they were still minors.
Despite the two credible proofs that the allegations could be true (they were first presented in an extensive report by Billboard) and a character based largely on saying things other people would be afraid to say, ministry mastermind Al Jourgensen only released a brief statement about it, via his lawyer:
“Mr. Jourgenson (sic) is not aware of any potential harmful activity by any member of the ministry during their respective tenure (s) with the group, including, but not limited to, Mr. Sin Quirin. ”
Jourgensen has not responded to the allegations since.
Yesterday (Friday, May 14), Quirin released a statement in which he said he had “decided to resign from the ministry” because “the time has come for me to focus on my health, my personal life, as well as other projects and interests. ”
At the time of going to press, Jourgensen had not released a statement to confirm or deny that Quirin is voluntarily leaving the group for reasons unrelated to the charges against him.
You can read Quirin’s statement below.
“Hi everyone, hope you have a great Friday. I wanted you all to know something that has been on my mind for some time. I have decided to quit the ministry. I am in a very different place in my life right now, and I think the time has come for me to focus on my health, my personal life, as well as other projects and interests. The ministry will always be my family. They all know that I love them very much and want nothing but the best for them and a lot of success. Thank you for your continued support everyone. I love you all!”
