Some time ago, I contacted the Rev. Stephen Parsons, a retired priest in the Church of England and an expert on shunning and abusive churches. I forwarded him materials related to my conflict with Bob Malm, and here is his comment on Bob’s program of shunning and exclusion:

Nice move, Bob. What a caring, compassionate priest.
