Christian homeschool movement leader accused by 10 women of rape, sexual assault

For decades Bill Gothard was the influential leader of a Christian homeschool movement that drew in conservative Christian families such as the Duggars from “19 Kids and Counting.”  The now 81-year old resigned in 2014 after being accused by 30 women including minors of sexual harassment and molestation.  On Wednesday 10 women filed a suit seeking damages from Gothard for sexual abuse.  More at Washington Post.
