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’?

That’s what is needed to reach the goal at North Point Church in Atlanta this weekend!
Their goal: gather 50+ tons of food to be distributed over the holidays to the needy in the Atlanta area. That’s THREE POUNDS of food per person attending!
I guess if you’re going to copy miracles from someone, it might as well be Jesus. This is how Cindy Jacobs fed the 3,000 with a few loaves of bread. (I think if she would have had a few little fishes, she probably could have fed 6,000… an even bigger miracle than in scripture!)
I would like to try to replicate the bank miracle. Or maybe with cookies or something. Wouldn’t you?
I think the person who invented sound tracks and the person who invented youtube and the person who invented that hat all are equally to blame for this.
I’m awake already.
Again hats off to Matthew Paul Turner at Jesus Needs New PR. Â What a great blog.
