Tennessee pastor accused of sexual assault has book canceled

Highpoint Church  YouTube

Woodson wrote that Savage pulled over the vehicle, unzipped his jeans and pulled out his penis before asking her to suck it. She said he offered to drive her home one night, but instead, he first brought her to an area off a road and forced her to perform oral sex. I was scared and embarrassed, but I did it. I was and remain very remorseful for the incident and deeply regret the pain I caused her and her family, as well as the pain I caused the church and God's Kingdom.

"After what I believe to have been about 5 minutes of this going on, he suddenly stopped, got out of the truck and ran around the back and to my side before falling to his knees. I did. He started touching me over my bra and then lifted my bra up and began touching my breasts", she continued. Now I was terrified and ashamed. "Well I REMEMBER", the email said. What have I done? "I am truly sorry more was not done". You can't tell anyone Jules, please. "You have to take this to the grave with you".

My fear and shame quickly turned to anger. "I swore to him I wouldn't tell anyone just to get him to stop", she added.

He was treated to a 20-second standing ovation while Woodson, watching online, was left in tears, per the New York Times.

"I couldn't concentrate at school".

"I do think that the current political season and cultural climate has caused many women who have been abused, neglected or treated as objects rather than image bearers to feel like there are certain inappropriate behaviors that Christian men are willing to look past for the sake of the party-line", she previously said. Savage was youth minister at the church.

On Sunday, Mr. Savage did not tell the congregation at Highpoint Church what took place in 1998, but he said that he had sinned, taken responsibility for it and never kept it a secret from church leaders. Lead Pastor Chris Conlee and the church leadership says it knew about the incident in Texas and has expressed support for Savage. Savage asserted that he "apologized and sought forgiveness from her, her parents, her discipleship group, the church staff, and the church leadership, who informed the congregation". In agreement with wise counsel, I took every step to respond in a biblical way.

"I resigned from ministry and moved back home to Memphis", he said.

"But the church's response is full of red flags that concern those of us who monitor the sexual abuse of minors in religious communities, and that should concern everyone who wants to see minors protected and perpetrators exposed and kept from harming other young people", the statement read.

Savage said Sunday that he apologized at the time of the incident before resigning from that previous position.He apologized again and said he never wanted to minimize what happened.

The victim, Jules Woodson, claimed that Savage assaulted her 20 years ago, when she was only a 17-year-old student. Oh my god, I'm so sorry. He then asked me to unbutton my shirt. Melanie Sakoda, a volunteer member of SNAP's board of directors, said in a statement provided to The Daily Caller News Foundation that both Parkway Baptist and Highpoint's respective responses to Woodson's account are rife with red flags.
