    What a tragic story. Unfortunately, people who are in need of medical care in some form or another continue to be victim-blamed like this today. I wish the church culture would get out of its historical mentality.

      You “wish the church culture would get out of its historical mentality.”? That is usually a convenient argument used when uncomfortable facts are brought forward. Otherwise people love historical accounts. Well, truth is not always pretty. But we should never shy away from the truth! Truth fears no investigation. I find that people who make those kinds of comments are usually afraid of learning truth which is difficult to take! We just have to deal with the facts.
