Girl, 14, better off in ‘destructive cult’

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
