A teenager has been ordered by the Family Court to live with her father in a religious community, despite her mother’s claims it was a
destructive cult that exposed the girl to harm.
The 14-year-old was born into the community her parents joined 30 years ago. The father said it was a nurturing environment teaching Christian ideals; the mother said it was controlled by a
self-proclaimed prophet and rife with psychological abuse.
After the mother left and moved in with a new partner, the father said she would
burn in hell. For legal reasons, the family cannot be named — via redwolf.newsvine.com
