In this email, Bob contacts my friend Dee Parsons, publisher of The Wartburg Watch, in an apparent effort to get her to change her testimony.
It’s interesting. Bob trots out the Jesus-babble, conveniently ignoring the numerous incidents of questionable veracity on his part. These range from telling parishioners that no one takes me seriously, to telling other audiences that his wife Leslie is “terrified” (despite the fact she didn’t even know of Mom’s blog until Bob told her. Hmmm.), to his oft-repeated, “Don’t worry about it. They’ll be retiring this year,” claim regarding church office staff, a line that he allegedly was using was using as early as Phil Smith’s tenure a junior warden.
Then you get the fictitious “Commonwealth Court,” with its equally fictitious “magistrate.” And Bob’s logical fallacy about filing a false police report, in which he asserts that his report is true. Why? Because he says it’s true. Topping it all off is his logical fallacy that you have to have met someone to have mistreated them—a curious concept in this era of social media.
Folks, don’t send your kids to Tabor, UNC, or Yale Divinity School. If this is the result, you’re better off keeping the money.
And, as always, it’s all about Bob Malm trying to be right and trying to assert power and control. Nothing at all Christlike here. And, as always, Jeff “Sugarland” Chiow is in smack dab in the middle.
