Woman Claims Married Minister, Spiritual Counselor Suggested They Get Naked For Therapy: Lawsuit
Complementarian “male headship,” as taught by Complementarians is false, as many Christ-professing men are perverts, and God would not ask women to submit to perverts.
Secondly, note that this guy is married – marriage, contra “Focus On the Family,” Al Mohler, and other marriage- promoting Christian groups and persons – does not make a person godly, ethical, responsible, or mature.
Also: contra most old school Christian “how to get married” advice, God is not demanding that a person achieve a level of godliness or perfection before he will allow them a spouse. If God with-held spouses from people for being flawed, abusive, or perverted, this guy below would not have gotten married.

An Iowa woman has filed a lawsuit seeking compensation for emotional distress and negligence after a former minister at Lutheran Church of Hope in West Des Moines, who was also serving as her spiritual counselor, allegedly suggested they get naked in bed as a part of her counseling.
The woman, who The Christian Post has chosen not to identify at this time because of her claims that she is a victim of sexual misconduct, alleges in the lawsuit filed in Polk County District Court earlier this month that the actions of her former counselor, Asa Crow, went “beyond all possible bounds of decency.”
According to the lawsuit (Link): cited by the Des Moines Register, the woman claims she met with Crow for counseling several times in 2021 for “spiritual direction.”
During those meetings, she alleges that Crow, who got married in 2016, made escalating remarks about sexual health. She further claims that he eventually suggested her spiritual direction “may include sexual acts” after proposing that they undress and sit in each other’s laps in a bed.
…The woman contends in her lawsuit that Crow introduced himself as “a qualified minister at Lutheran Church of Hope” during her first video conference with him.
…The woman also alleges that during her second session of in-person counseling with Crow on or about April 18, 2021, at a co-working office space, “Asa shared that his ‘love language’ is ‘physical touch.’
It was during this meeting that the idea of lying in bed naked together came up.
…The woman’s lawsuit accuses Lutheran Church of Hope of negligence in hiring Crow because he had prior sexual abuse allegations against him in Texas and Colorado.
