A friend messaged me today and said:
“Interesting that this is the one-year anniversary of the dismissal of the lawsuit against Julie Anne Smith et al, where their former pastor from Beaverton, Oregon, sued for liable for half a million dollars. Perhaps July 26 is a Justice Day on God’s liturgical calendar?”
What is it with spiritual abusers? Bullies who try to silence those they have abused? I see an interesting parallel between the lawsuit from Oregon and this trial…arrogant bullies will always proclaim their innocence, “in the name of the Lord.” Oh how this must break the heart of God, who would never treat people as they do.
Yes, today is Justice Day, as the “Associate Pastor” of Sound Doctrine Church was handed a 20 year prison sentence, with no less than 18 years before parole can be considered.
