Singles Discrimination, Complementarianism, Equally Yoked Teaching, and Spotting Predators in Church Video

That same video has also been making the rounds on other Christian blogs, sites, forums, and on Twitter.
The video is around 18 minutes long. I watched it a few days ago.
The video features a Christian woman who says a 50-something guy showed up at her church, a man who set off red flags for her, due to his weird behavior around the kids who were there at the church, including her own.
