Where in the World is Doug Phillips? Part 13

I wasn't too sure where to put this, but popped it in here because this is another VF alumni. Hemant Mehta has reported that "‘Pro-life’ speaker thanks God for killing man who was ‘obstacle’ to abortion ban."  Turns out this is none other than Natty Darnell complaining that Republican GOP House Speaker David Ralston wasn't anti-abortion enough for him and he's happy the guy has passed away. Darnell is quoted as saying “We thank you for how you have relieved us from one legislator, a speaker who made himself an obstacle, and we pray that, Father, you would help other legislators to serve you in fear and to take warning."

Mehta links the article back to some earlier writing of Darnell's which makes for horrifying reading on his ideas about biblical fatherhood and the sexual abuse scandals (that are still happening) in churches everywhere. It's a good reminder that Darnell isn't just a pompous, overdressed spanner, but a really nasty piece of work.

Darnell was probably the worst of the VF fanboyz, and thatʻs saying something. 

The Wayback Machine link to Darnell's defunct blog, Persevero, is interesting, disgusting though it is. The linked post, written in the aftermath of the Fall of The Tool & the exposure of Gothard sexual abuse, weasels its way through a discussion on how sexual predation in fundamentalist Christian settings should be handled. 

Admiring commenters include Bret Smith and James Pennington.

Darnell is an absolute ass and a profoundly mean spirited and shallow man. 

I just checked his Insta account.  Their baby is seriously cute; absolutely adorable.

Love that Bret Smith thinks they can cover abuse in fundamentalism in 15 minutes. 😂

He only needs 3 bullet points!

1: Satan!

2: It was her fault, so really the perpetrator is the actual victim! 

3: He repented. Christ has forgiven him, so he is now innocent!

As to where in the world is DPIAT, in November 2022, it looks like he was grifting along with Liberty on her junket to Europe:

Yep—because molesters and rapists always make sure to have an audience before the crime.

Didnʻt know about these recent Twitter comments but Iʻm glad to see that even other conservatives have a problem with the vile Darnell.

Can someone explain why in conservative Christianity this verse gets interpreted as two or three witnesses of one events versus two or three witnesses to the same behavior (as in, multiple victims with same behavior pattern).

This makes my head explode every single time and every single time I comment on it. The same Bible loving guys who trot that out slip right past the verses where - in a society dominated by OT patriarchy - the Israelite leaders were to believe a woman when there were no witnesses. If it happened in the country, and no one was there. The man was executed…presumably on the woman’s word alone. 
 

I hope it’s obvious I do not think we should live by these laws but the Cherry picking drives me up the wall.

Great point.

 

The explanation is they don’t believe women or children. And power. 
 

B/c as that guy’s twitter comments show, they apply it to other situations too, so if a man verbally abused someone or pretty much does anything and is called on it, he can be like: means nothing if only one witness.

I think the reason there is that the individual victims with the same story might have all come together and made the story up. But, of course, the two or three witnesses could do that as well. 
 

I think that the reluctance to see a pattern ties in with the tendency to see actions like sexual abuse as a “mistake” for which the leader can be forgiven. And then, of course, to bring it up again in order to point out a pattern would be to have not actually forgiven the perpetrator.

DP had been spending quite a bit of time in London (I think) working on a film, so this may be related.

IMO Nattie Darnell is someone whose skeletons will eventually come out and they’re going to be worse than most.

Someone needs to make a list of former VF interns and keep track of possible shenanigans.

I don't have the time, but it's a fantastic idea.  VF trained all those boys and they went out into the world and spread that VF biblical patriarchy around like manure.

Do we have a "where are they now?" Vision Forum thread?  I was wondering about Peter and Kelly and all the other former VFers.

Poor Kelly. Every time I think of her I think of that silly chest-thumping article her father wrote about how he and his buddies sat on their hands and did nothing while she was being harassed by a drunken man during a plane flight.

Peter's budding Real Estate empire has a new headquarters.

Quote

The Goat House is now Bradrick's home and an office for his real estate company, Red Banner Team. He plans to renovate the property and turn the house into an office where he and his co-workers can meet clients.

Bradrick is not new to Southworth. After living there for several years in his childhood, Bradrick says he's excited to be back in the community.

They also host movie nights:

I just had this horrible realization that based on this criteria for proving guilt Natty here could watch a child be molested and… do nothing. Because why speak if there’s no second witness? The point of telling someone about that sort of thing is to stop the perpetrator by proving his guilt, but if there’s no second witness, then why bother? It might even be a sin for him to speak and try to prove guilt without a second witness. And if he assaulted the predator he might get in trouble himself because there’s no second witness to justify his actions.  It also means that if Natty *is* the second witness the victim is at his mercy regarding whether or not he speaks. If he chooses not to, the victim has no recourse. 
 

I don’t know why this just now occurred to me, but it’s completely chilled my blood. I hope someone in his church is keeping an eye on him.

Behold the manly wide-legged stance, now improved with one foot elevated on a rock. 
 

Bradrick’s plan to fundraiser for community benefit (ambulance district support) impresses positively.  And the guy has some decent success. Who wanted the divorce, again?

      Therapy Outside the Box

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
