suzannetitkemeyer

by Suzanne TitkemeyerWhen the news of the unwanted sexual encounters between Vision Forum's Doug Phillips and Lordes Torres came out followed by the closing of both Vision Forum Ministries and their for profit Vision Forum Inc it left quite a void in the world of Christian Dominionism, Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements.
