Fortunately, the judge disagreed, and decided NOT to dismiss the case.  Here’s the story: A judge has refused to dismiss a civil lawsuit that accuses a Tulsa megachurch of trying to cover up the rape of a 13-year-old girl by a worker on the church’s campus. The Victory Christian Center had argued that the girl’s mother, who filed the suit, was not entitled to any relief under the law. A judge on Monday rejected the church’s request to dismiss the lawsuit. Ex-janitor Chris Denman was sentenced to 55 years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple sex-related charges. Denman admitted raping the teenage girl in a stairwell on church property. The lawsuit accuses employees of not reporting the August rape to the authorities while the church conducted an in-house investigation. The mother is seeking more than $75,000 in damages. Only $75,000 in damages? Wow… that seems more than fair to me. My 13 year old girl is raped by a church employee on the church property, and the church leaders try to cover it up… not telling law enforcement for days? My question to the mother is… why are you only asking for $75,000? My question to the church is… what are you stinkin’ smokin’? // Read more here…

From The Inquisitr: A former janitor at a Tulsa megachurch was sentenced to 55 years in prison Wednesday after he pleaded guilty to raping a 13-year-old girl in the church’s stairwell. Chris Denman was sentenced to an additional five years of probation and a $12,000 fine.
 In October, Denman pleaded guilty to first-degree rape, forcible oral sodomy of a child, lewd molestation, making a lewd proposal to a child and two counts of using a computer to facilitate a sex crime. There was no plea agreement in place, and Denman faced a life sentence.
Denman was accused of the August rape of a 13-year-old girl on the campus of Victory Christian Center, a megachurch in Tulsa that has 17,000 members. He was also charged with making a lewd proposal to a 12-year-old girl and molesting a 15-year-old girl. Denman quoted Bible verses at his Wednesday sentencing and said he wanted to go to prison. Prosecutors said at the hearing that Denman was arrogant and used religion and the safety of the church to prey on young girls. A second former employee, Israel Castillo, awaits trial on a charge of making a lewd or indecent proposal to a child. Prosecutors said Castillo sent explicit Facebook Messages to a 14-year-old girl he had known for at least two years. Five church employees accused of waiting two weeks to report the alleged rape are facing misdemeanor charges. They include the son and daughter-in-law of the head pastor, Sharon Daugherty. All five have pleaded not guilty. The 13-year-old victim’s mother sued the church and accused employees of trying to cover up the rape. She said the church was more interested in damage control and making her daughter feel as if she were to blame for the rape. // Read more of this story here… What a black eye on: The church community in Tulsa The megachurch movement (all the headlines mention MEGACHURCH in the headline) All those that serve God faithfully.
