  1. Discovering Grace is a website set up by Gothard supporters to try and make him look like he isn't a creepy sexual predator. They aren't doing a great job at that. I haven't read around it too much because my blood pressure can only take so much Gothard worship, but someone left a comment asking why Gothard focused on surrounding himself with teen girls. The moderator(who I'm pretty sure in the infamous Alfred) said that Gothard had a special calling to encourage young girls to be "mighty in spirit". When asked why he didn't do this for all teen girls, just the very pretty ones who were Gothard's "type", the moderator gave this reply: See, the devil sure spends extra time on the pretty ones, because he gets so much more mileage out of time invested in them than in the unattractive ones. The movie stars, the athletes . . . the just “gorgeous” ones. People instinctively like them and follow them. Argue all you want about what should be . . . can you tell me I am wrong? So . . . why in the world would Bill not spend more time on them as well, for the same reasons? And why did Gothard single out these pretty teens and tell them exactly how to dress? Not because he is a creepy pervert but because: gave focused advice to “Sammy” on how to dress, carry herself, speak, all with the purpose so she could make a great impression on others, especially her future husband and his family and friends. Ordered her women’s magazines toward that end. Fictional . . . but . . . apparently considered quite normal, OK, given the overwhelming popularity of the novel. Do you really think that is bad Well, wouldn't it make more sense for him to get a woman to do this? Wouldn't a woman have better idea on how to do this instead of an elderly man? When questioned even more about this, the moderator sticks with defending Gothard surrounding himself with pretty teen girls because God has destined them for greatness and they need Gothard to help defend them from Satan. The ugly ones like me, didn't. We weren't destined for much, apparently. http://www.discoveringgrace.com/2015/11/22/shepherd-of-the-hills/#comment-555 I didn't even really read their articles, the comments are the best part.

    Wounded Eagles: Fundie Scandals

    On the Doug Phillips is a tool who resigned from VF thread, I mentioned wishing I could talk about similar situations in my denomination. Several members encouraged me to start a thread. I don't have time to type long back-grounds on these situations right now, but will post links. I'll be posting on a few situations in Seventh-day Adventist circles, but if others want to expand the conversation withbtheir own stories, go ahead. The title of this post refers to Samuel Korentang Pipim, a prominant proponent of biblical literalism/inerrancy, and opponent of women's ordination. After it was revealed that during meetings in Africa he raped a young woman seeking spiritual guidance, his church membership was removed. A year later he was seeking rebaptism (still denying non-consensual sex or even that he needed to confess to his wife) and then more accusations surfaced. So he started a ministry for "wounded eagles" who fall seven times so they can be greater tools for God. Here's a longer version of the story: /spectrummagazine.org/blog/2012/06/06/receiving-bird-samuel-koranteng-pipim-seeks-rebaptism-sabbath I'm on my phone, so please forgive typos.
  4. Has anyone ever seen this story? Very interesting and disturbing, though not surprising. http://www.wthr.com/global/story.asp?s= ... =Printable
  5. LibbyAnne at Love, Joy, Feminism has a post on Jasmin Baucham's endorsement of CollegePlus. in the comments, someone mentions Brad Voeller, the founder of CP: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/lovejoyfem ... ment-12868 Anyone know more about this? I only found one result for his name on FJ, and it doesn't mention anything about a family scandal. How many epic family meltdowns has ATI caused?
