Jury awards $4.3 million to pastor called 'of the devil'

Linking LA

DEVIL OF A CASE: A jury in Torrance has awarded $4.6 million to the former pastor of a South Bay church who claims her successor said she was "of the devil." According to the Daily Breeze, the case stems from a bitter internal dispute at the Prairie Avenue Foursquare Church in Torrance over finances and other matters.  "I think justice was done," Bill Crosby, Johnson's attorney, told the paper. "The church was held accountable for its misconduct toward a fine woman who didn't deserve the treatment she got."

These two post are gibberish, no one knows what you are talking about, what you are referring to or what you mean. It just demonstrates how out of touch "scripture" can place you when you cannot articulate in a cogent manner the who, what, when, where and why of your argument. So does that mean the devil won?
