    ATLANTA —
    Police said Juanita Bynum, a televangelist who has won a national following with sermons about women's empowerment, was assaulted by her preacher husband in the parking lot of an Atlanta hotel early Wednesday.

    Bynum and her estranged husband, Thomas W. Weeks III, the founder of Global Destiny churches, met at Renaissance Concourse Hotel near Atlanta's airport to try to reconcile, police said.
    About 4 a.m., they fought in the parking lot until a hotel bellman pulled Weeks off, Officer Ronald Campbell said.
    "She was bruised up and battered," Campbell said. "She had purple bruising around her neck and upper torso."
    No charges had been filed by Wednesday night against Weeks, who left the scene accordign to police.
    Bynum, a Pentecostal evangelist who lives in Hempstead, N.Y., has administrative offices in Waycross. The former homemaker, hairdresser and flight attendant got a break when Bishop T.D. Jakes invited her to speak at one of his conferences several years ago. Her ministry blossomed further after her "No More Sheets" sermon on breaking free of sexual promiscuity at a singles event.
    She writes books, records inspirational CDs and preaches to millions through televised sermons.
    She married Weeks in 2002 in a televised wedding.

    Apart from religion, there is much I give her credit for when it came to her struggles in life.

    Will this be a Forgive your abuser situation?
    Will this be, wife obey your abusive husband, and they reconcile?
    Will they leave this in their Jesus hands?

    Run, run, run out of this union Juanita:run: :run: :run:

    If she do not and return to the relationship, we witness her serving a Human being abusive god mind-set, and this is sending the wrong message to many.

    Spousal abuse/violence...

    ...is not selective to any one group despite and/or relative to his/her belief system.

    The gut and root of the problem and/or cure lie inside behavior modification. Faith, belief and hope are all poor sutstitute teachers to the soul.

    I ponder on the outcome...!
