I was 8 when I approached the Pastor's wife for help. She went on a tirade calling me a whore in every way that she could think of and told me that I was going to burn in hell; that I should get down on my knees and pray for forgiveness. I'm still surprised that she didn't call on the congregation to stone me. I've not set foot in a church since. It was almost 40 years before I mentioned it again to anyone.
