Here’s a recent photo of my mom, the woman Jeff “Sugarland” Chiow and Dysfunctional Bob wanted to drag into court. Clearly, the very image of a “domestic terrorist.” Nice move, gentlemen. Nothing even remotely Christian about either one of you.
One of the things that’s amusing to watch is the slow progression as it gradually dawns on the denizens of Planet Malm (a self-contained planet, pretty to look at, but with an atmosphere of toxic gusts) that the place is in trouble, particularly on the financial front. In 2014, I repeatedly warned Bob, in writing, that my forward-looking… Read More »
One of the amusing things about folks at Grace Episcopal is that they not only don’t get it, but they don’t get it. As in, they continue to prove my underlying points: That the parish is toxic. That the parish is Christian in name only. Moreover, folks at the church are so eager to attack others they can’t… Read More »
Did you notice something about Grace Episcopal Alexandria over the past year? While the place has never been a model of openness and transparency, the past year has seen an increase in the number of resignations for “personal reasons.” Consider: Fanny Belanger resigned for “personal reasons” about the same time as Bob Malm’s abortive effort to drag my… Read More »
Amidst the continuing public controversy over Bob Malm’s claims that he’s being pursued by “domestic terrorists,” an older member of the parish recently posted a clueless, amusing, and rather telling review of the parish on Google reviews. I’ll leave the person’s name out, as it’s not germane to this post, but instead focus on the ways in which… Read More »
In yet another sign that St. Dysfunction, aka Grace Episcopal Alexandria, is coming unraveled thanks to Bob Malm’s weird claims of being threatened by “domestic terrorism,” the church has announced that there will be no Thanksgiving meal this year. Dinner at the church, for anyone who wanted to come, was a tradition Mike and I started and for… Read More »
One of the downsides of Bob Malm’s efforts to shut down criticism by use of inflammatory rhetoric is that someone might actually believe him. That appears to be the case in recent comments by a Grace parishioner, who claims that a family at the school (she calls it a “day school,” which is ironic, as the school has… Read More »
Following the recent coverage in The Wartburg Watch of Bob Malm’s vendetta against me, the liars and bullies of Grace Church again have felt the need to enter the fray. Attached are screen caps of comments from a parishioner at Grace Episcopal in which, like the clueless resident of Sugarland she is, someone (most likely Lisa Medley), tries to… Read More »
One of the things that’s troubling about Grace church’s governance is the enduring myth that the church has been running a balanced budget.The reality, however, is that it’s been running a deficit for many years. Per the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 93, issued in 1987, all nonprofits must include depreciation and amortization in… Read More »
Reprinted in full, with permission, is the recent Wartburg Watch post about Bob Malm’s vendetta against me. “Bravery is the choice to show up and listen to another person, be it a loved one or perceived foe, even when it is uncomfortable, painful, or the last thing you want to do.” ― Alaric Hutchinson Dove of Peace Last year,… Read More »
Bob Malm’s antics, including his efforts to drag a dying woman into court, have again garnered coverage in The Wartburg Watch. Check it out at http://thewartburgwatch.com/2018/11/13/update-grace-episcopal-church-in-alexandria-virginia-called-former-member-eric-bonetti-a-domestic-terroristand-got-a-protective-order/
There’s a good article on shunning on the Open Mind Foundation’s website. In the article, the author correctly notes that shunning is often the most obvious sign that a church is abusive—which should be food for thought for anyone considering getting involved at St. Dysfunction, aka Grace Episcopal in Alexandria, and rector Bob Malm’s fun and games, which… Read More »
You know, it’s not every day that churches get in the news. In fact, these days, with the declining role of churches in society, it’s hard to get coverage, except in the local community rags. But Grace Episcopal in Alexandria has a very special claim to fame. Per rector Bob Malm, and his attorney Jeff Chiow, the church… Read More »
Amidst the recent appeals from Dysfunctional Bob Malm for money, there are ongoing warning signs that the parish financially is tapped out. Thus, there is reason to believe both that additional revenue may not be forthcoming in the final months of the year, and that next year’s pledges likely will decrease. Consider: Attendance at Shrine Mont, the Altar… Read More »
When I was a kid, a family member commonly used the phrase “a day late and a dollar short.” This words come to mind as Bishop Susan Goff now takes on the ecclesiastical authority for the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia and announces that she will begin a series of “listening sessions” across the diocese. All of which is… Read More »
Consider: Any church that feels that it has to: lie in order to protect its future call former members “domestic terrorists” try dragging a dying woman into court urge members to commit suicide Doesn’t deserve your support. And if you do support this behavior, then you are part of the problem.
