A Masturbation Lawsuit Is Rattling Christian Homeschoolers

Doug Phillips, the former head of Vision Forum Ministries, is being sued by a former follower who claims he used her as his “personal sex slave.” Photo by Vision Forum via Facebook Last fall, Douglas Phillips, a fundamentalist Christian homeschooling guru and leading proponent of the “Biblical Patriarchy” movement, shocked his followers by publicly admitting that he had a relationship with a woman other than his wife, and subsequently shuttered his popular—and lucrative—Vision Forum ministries. Given that philandering religious leaders are a dime a dozen, the story seemed pretty unremarkable at the time.
