A Cry For Justice

Awakening the Evangelical Church to Domestic Violence and Abuse in its Midst

Breaking news: Doug Phillips’ victim files lawsuit against Phillips and Vision Forum.

Lourdes Torres, Alleged Victim in the Doug Phillips (Vision Forum) Sex Abuse Scandals Files Lawsuit

This has just been published at Spiritual Sounding Board, Julie Anne Smith’s blog.

It will be of interest to any readers who:

  • are victims of spiritual and/or sexual abuse — it will encourage you to see how a victim has had the courage to seek secular justice against her abuser,
  • have been affected by Doug Phillips and Vision Forum
  • have been affected by other Patriarchal and Quiverful cults in Christendom

My opinion: Lourdes Torres — now Lourdes Torres-Manteufel: she has just got married —  is A VERY BRAVE LADY. 🙂

Go Lourdes!

[We are publishing this as an extra post today because it is such big news, and because we want to encourage Lourdes as much as possible.]

    Yes! Go Lourdes!! You are brave, indeed!!! Please know that many people are supporting you and praying for you!!

  2. Anonymous

    Praying for Lourdes and her husband. Doug Philips will do everything possible to malign her.

  3. BeenThereDoneThat

    Indeed – Bravo for her!
    We should all keep her in prayer as I suspect the road will be very difficult based on what I have read about Doug Phillips and the arsenal he uses.

    May justice prevail.
