12-year-old rape victim told to 'turn the other cheek' as Christian school refused to report...

A 12-year-old rape victim was told by the headmaster of a Christian school "to turn the other cheek" and that "everything in God's kingdom happens for a reason", lawsuit files alledge.

The school is being accused of covering up repeated sexual assaults against the boy, downplaying the attacks and refusing to report a rape in a lawsuit that is seeking at least $30m (23m) in damages.

The mother of the boy, who attends Brentwood Academy, a prestigious private school in Williamson County in Tennessee, filed the lawsuit in which she also accuses four eight-grade students, then 14 and 15-years-old, of having repeatedly sexually abused her son when he was in the sixth grade in 2014/15.

...

When John Doe talked about the incident to the school headmaster Curtis H Masters, he allegedly told him he needed to "turn the other cheek and that "everything in God's kingdom happens for a reason".

This is just sickening. And, for the record, I don't see much difference between this usage of "happens for a reason" and all the other bullshit times it gets used. Oh, that little girl had to die a horrible death because god had a reason. Fuck that.

1. I want to see this headmaster go straight to jail for this. If he doesn't get convicted of

the zillion laws he's broken by not protecting the child in his charge, then we are NOT SERIOUS about protecting children from sexual abuse.

3. I didn't make it clear

I was talking about a generic situation/attitude at the end, not specifically the case in the OP.

6. Developments since August: mother of accused boy names victim, sues; now countersued

Mother of alleged victim in Brentwood Academy case counter sues parent who filed $1.5 million defamation lawsuit

The mother of a boy who was allegedly sexually assaulted at Brentwood Academy has filed a counter lawsuit against the mother of a boy accused of participating in the assaults.
...
After a mother of one of the four boys accused in the assaults filed a defamation lawsuit against Jane Doe in September, Jane Doe filed an answer and counterclaim this week against the mother, alleging that the mother abused the judicial process by revealing Jane Doe's name and "compromising the anonymity of her child."

"Whereas (Jane Doe) did not utilize plaintiff's name in a judicial proceeding, and plaintiff and her child were not subjected to any sexual assault, plaintiff has purposefully used defendant's full name, knowing and intending that it would reveal the identity of a minor child in a matter involving sexual assault," the counter claim says.
