Early church was the biggest for taking care of vulnerable women. You see stories all up in the Bible about Jesus having compassion on the woman caught in adultery, the sinful women. Jesus EXPLICITLY goes to the woman at the well who has had five different husbands and who is living with a man who ain't her husband and accepts her and she becomes his evangelist. And the #1 thing Jesus says you do NOT do? You do NOT turn away children. That pastor has committed worse since that the mother ever did. She might be lost, but he's a pharisee who has straight rejected the way of God.
