i am just choking about this one:
Pastor not only doesn't believe 12-year old's report of sexual abuse at home, but punishes her for "rebellion". he BEAT her for it (with the consent of her mother and step-father, which is even worse.)
and he gets a slap on the wrist.
the step-father goes on trial for the sexual abuse in july.
how many times does a girl need to be abused before she 'learns'??
apparently, a lot.
