I hear from a disheartening number of women who write in to relate their stories of pastors who, in one way or another, advised them to stick with their abusive husbands. How could these good, well-intentioned men give advice that's so egregiously wrong?
Right now, four women a day are killed in the U.S. by a partner they've loved. Let's stop accepting this violence as the way the world works, and make our own world a little better, and safer, today. Who's with me?
Though many people claimed to love Aasiya, none of them did enough. Laws are useless in the face of inadequate support systems in a person's family and friend network that can help extract one from her abusive situation.
