Christian School Tells Young Boy Who Was Violently Raped By Fellow Students, ‘Turn The Other Cheek’

The Brentwood Academy is an exclusive Christian school in a wealthy suburb of Nashville. And it is now being sued for $60 million because it allegedly covered up the repeated rape of a young boy who attended school there.

According to the lawsuit, which has been filed by the mother of the victim, Brentwood allowed four eighth-grade bullies to repeatedly sexually assault a sixth-grade student. When the boy reported the rape to the headmaster of the school, Curtis G. Masters, he was told to “turn the other cheek” and “everything in God’s kingdom happens for a reason.”

Details of how the 12-year-old boy was assaulted read like something from a horror novel. The lawsuit details the abuse:

“Four male students are alleged to have conspired to engage in male on male sexual harassment, sexual assault and/or rape upon John Doe in the locker room not supervised by an adult. (The boy) would place his penis before John Doe and forcibly penetrated it into the mouth of Plaintiff John Doe without consenting claiming ‘eat it, eat it, eat it, open your mouth, accept it.'”

The same eighth-grader also allegedly bragged he:

“FUcked that boy up the ass and stuck a Gatorade bottle in him.”

Additionally, the completely uncaring headmaster also said that the allegations of rape were merely a case of “boys being boys and he could not investigate each of those and run a school.”

Even more shocking, when the victim’s mother tried to report the sexual assault to law enforcement, former Brentwood employee Chris Roberts — the victim’s counselor at Daystar Counseling — allegedly told her:

“This isn’t how Christian institutions handle these things.”

The suit isn’t just against Brentwood Academy, according to local newspaper the Tennessean:

“In addition to Masters, middle school director Nancy Brasher, administrator and middle school athletic director Buddy Alexander, assistant basketball coach Lyle Husband and sixth grade basketball coach Mike Vazquez, who is also Masters’ son-in-law, are named as individual defendants in the suit.”
