Cult accuser says she came forward to protect sisters
"I have three sisters who are on that property and two of them are the age it started with me."
With those words, an alleged victim of Grandview Baptist Church North pastor George Otis Johnston told Tara Brown of KODE why she came forward with her allegations. Those allegations, which are noted in a post from earlier today, bring to 17 the number lodged against the self-proclaimed minister.
During the interview in this story, which now appears to belong to KODE and Ms. Brown, the girl said Johnston molested her from the time she hit puberty until she reached age 17 and left the compound near Granby.
The latest installment in Ms. Brown's series on these cult-like churches made for riveting television.
One note: If this story had broken last year, Ms. Brown's story would not have aired until around midnight due to Monday Night Football, which now is being carried by ESPN.
