Bethella

Recommended Posts

There has been a suggestion to start a list of fundies and their scandals. Here's the Fundy Walk of Shame:

List Updated 20 March 2022

March 23, 2017: I don't know if there's enough brain bleach in the world to handle compiling this list. My emotions keep swinging back and forth between rage and crying. This is horrid.

March 20, 2017: This list is obviously incomplete. I know there are a couple of cases listed by the victim's name rather than the perpetrator but I can't take any more nastiness tonight. I'll come back to it in a day or two. Please post if there are people I'm missing or if you see anything that needs to be corrected, I don't know all of these people/cases.

There was the whole Sovreign Grace/Covenant Life sex abuse and cover up. There's an article in Time about it.

And Doug Wilson/Steve Stitler? That's a pet project for Love, Joy, Feminism. 

Can you give me a bit more information about these situations so I don't have to go tracking down everything?

Can I link to Time and Love Joy feminism?  There are two articles that lay it all out for both of those.

It's not Time or Love, Joy, Feminism, but the Washingtonian magazine did a story about Covenant Life Church, which was ground zero for the Sovereign Grace scandal.

https://www.washingtonian.com/2016/02/14/the-sex-abuse-scandal-that-devastated-a-suburban-megachurch-sovereign-grace-ministries/

 

As for Sitler, there's http://www.moscowid.net/

It's a one-stop shop for everything Doug Wilson, including his plagiarism, Sitler, his continued shitheel behavior towards Natalie Greenfield, who was sexually abused by another one of Wilson's "seminary" students, etc., etc.

There are people with much better institutional memories than me. @apple1 comes to mind.

I'm short on time today but it would probably be good to categorize all this too.

All Fundie abuse scandals?  Or do you mean sexual abuse only?  Familial abuse, adoption abuse, institutional abuse, spiritual abuse?  Only those cases that went to trial and got a conviction?  

I fill in later but off the top of my head, Jack Schaap, http://www.nwitimes.com/news/local/lake/hammond/ex-megachurch-pastor-blames-underage-victim-wants-out-of-prison/article_2ae9324b-eacf-546e-9f73-c12147f5726f.html

And Ernest Willis, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinity_Baptist_Church_sex_scandal

On child abuse:  Homeschoolings Invisible Children http://hsinvisiblechildren.org/ and Pound Pup Legacy http://poundpuplegacy.org/ have pretty comprehensive lists already - and make it fairly easy to pick out Fundies.

The Roloff Homes and Hephzibah House scandals also come to mind.

Are the Nog situations considered scandal or just day to day life?

Do you consider them fundy -or just fucked up?

There's also Tullian Tchividjian - There are multiple articles online but here is the summary from Spiritual Sounding Board: https://spiritualsoundingboard.com/tag/tullian-tchividjian/

I've thought about this one a lot because it's really sad. He seems like a talented guy and has written some helpful things, but the arrogance and scandalous behavior seemed to get the better of him. I feel bad for his kids.

Daniel Lockwood:  suddenly and immediately removed from his ministry in Mexico due to unrevealed transgression

I'm also going to mention the Anderson Family (PP and ZZ).

PP has had MULTIPLE run ins with the law, CPS has come to their house in the middle of the night, PP has been refused entry/deported from foreign countries, he is on a watch list, and his church is considered a hate group.  He may be proud of these things, but most people wouldn't be.

On the subject of Jack Schaap: He relatively recently passed the mark of 3 years federal imprisonment (and his ex-wife divorced him within the first months IIRC).

Couldn't have happened to a more deserving individual.

Dr. Stephen Paine(Erin Bates Paine's FIL) is accused of treating a sexual assault victim by saying she just needed a protein bar. 

Bob Jones University has a history of covering up sexual assault.

Yes and he was painted as the victim even though he pointed a gun at his wife, pulled the trigger and killed her. The main complaint by his family was that jail was totally going to mess up his life. Her family was less understanding.

I see people have already mentioned Jack Schaap. Hyles Anderson College, affiliated with Schaap, has a bevy of sex crimes dating back to the 70s, iirc. A fairly comprehensive list: http://ichabodthegloryhasdeparted.blogspot.com/2012/08/list-of-hyles-related-clergy-sex-abuse.html  (ack! I see someone I knew back in the day on here. Horrifying. I hope he rots in hell.)

This is going back a long time, but old sins have long shadows -- Dave Hyles, along with being a serial adulterer, was also the sole suspect in the death of a child, Brent Stevens.

http://www.ministers-best-friend.com/CHRISTIPEDIA-tm--DAVE-HYLES--From-Sexual-Promiscuity-to-DEATH-of-TWO-SONS.html

And Nathan Leuthold, missionary to Lithuania, who murdered his wife Denise on Valentine's Day so that he could be with his young Lithuanian mistress.  www.pjstar.com/article/20140910/NEWS/140919958

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.
