Christian School Being Sued For Telling 12-Year-Old Rape Victim To ‘Turn The Other Cheek’
The Brentwood Academy, which is an exclusive Christian private school in Nashville, is being sued for covering up multiple sexual assaults of a 12-year-old boy.
According to the Tennessean, the lawsuit was filed by the boys mother after finding out the school told the victim to “turn the other cheek” and that, “everything in God’s kingdom happens for a reason.”
Four male students are alleged to have “conspired to engage in male on male sexual harassment, sexual assault and/or rape upon John Doe in the locker room not supervised by an adult,” according to the lawsuit. “(The boy) would place his penis before John Doe and forcibly penetrated it into the mouth of Plaintiff John Doe without consenting claiming ‘eat it, eat it, eat it, open your mouth, accept it.’”
The lawsuit continued, stating that the same student is alleged to have bragged he “f—ed that boy up the ass and stuck a Gatorade bottle in him.”
Brentwood Academy Headmaster Curtis G. Masters saw nothing wrong with the sexual acts and considered the allegations to be “boys being boys and he could not investigate each of those and run a school.”
The victim’s mother tried to report the assault to the police, but former Brentwood employee Chris Roberts allegedly responded, “this isn’t how Christian institutions handle these things.”
According to the Tennessean, “In addition to Masters, middle school director Nancy Brasher, administrator and middle school athletic director Buddy Alexander, assistant basketball coach Lyle Husband and sixth grade basketball coach Mike Vazquez, who is also Masters’ son-in-law, are named as individual defendants in the suit.”
