Don't miss Bible class in Australia:
THE brutal beating left her with deep purple bruises all over her body but a priest and two Bible studies teachers claim they were just trying to "help" the girl realise she should go to church.
Chi Yeong Yun, 37, a priest at Chatswood's Open Door Church, and Bible studies teachers James Kang, 21, and Tom Chae-Young Lee, 22, pleaded guilty in the NSW District Court yesterday to assaulting Angela Kim on July 8 last year.
The court heard the three men beat Ms Kim, who was 19 at the time of the attack, for a "lengthy" period of time at a Bobbin Head park after dark.
Giving evidence with the aid of an interpreter, church elder Ken An said he has realised that beating as a form of "discipline" was wrong in Australia.
"I did not know how different the law was here and in Korea. I know know that it was wrong," he said.
Hmmm. Somehow it doesn't seem like what Jesus would do.
