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 May 2019

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.

Wasn't there also that guy who shot his first wife while "playing a game" and then remarried? Joshua Beasley I think it was.

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

      You know what is really not fun? Stopping at Canadian Tire on my way home from a pretty stupid day at work because I need to pick up something to dry out the inside of my trunk after water got inside it (long story) and managing to lock my keys in the car. Now I get to wait for BCAA to come unlock it for me and my back is  aching. Nowhere to sit because it keeps raining off and on. Don't want to go back in the store because Covid. And once I get home I get to hear the full story about why the guy couldn't make it to our house today to fix the sump pump that seems to be broken. Which is obviously not what you want if you've seen the rain forecast. I should have stayed in bed today. 😕

      Yes, it's oral thrush!  Treating it with miconazole gel 4 times a day.  Whoever decided to flavour it chocolate orange is a flipping genius!
      Also needing 1 litre of electrolyte solution per day because my steroid load is killing my levels.  Tomorrow's the last day of prednisolone, thank goodness.  Fingers crossed it's done the job, because I'm still having the occasional wobble with breathing. 
      I see the practice nurse on Monday.

      I'm not able to update the logos to the fall ones today -- there's a bug that is solved in a recent update version to fix it, but I don't have the time to do that until next week. Until then, we are still living in an endless summer friends!

      Second Covid vax is currently kicking my butt. Fever, chills, body aches, exhaustion, etc. 
      Miserable, but so so grateful to be vaccinated. Sure as hell beats actual Covid.
