"I'm going to have to relive that night again," said Fenner of the trial. Fenner said that nearly two dozen people surrounded him in the sanctuary when he was slapped, punched, choked and 'blasted' - a church practice that involves intense screaming - for two hours as they tried to expel his 'homosexual demons'.
"They just kept hitting him over and over. It was horrible. ... I thought that [Fenner] was going to be the first person they killed," said former member Danielle Cordes.
