Whose side are we on?

“One of my close friends recently opened up about the extent of the violence she experienced in her marriage. Raised in a Christian home, she married a Christian man whom she said, “looked perfect on paper”. They are both intelligent people at the top of their professional fields, and had a lovely home with beautiful children at the best private schools. I knew that there were problems, but it was not until a year after they separated that I discovered the extent of what she had endured,” says The Rev’d Ann Edwards
