It’s no secret that a great many so-called Christians turn out only for Christmas and Easter, but that begs the question: Even if you’re nominally observant, do you really want to worship at a church where the rector commits perjury, tries to drag the dying into court, misuses memorial funds, and goes after innocent family members?
- The rector commits perjury.
- The rector conducts smear campaigns
- The church tries to drag a dying woman into court.
- Members talk about you, not to you.
- Members flip you off—how’s that for the baptismal covenant in action?
- It’s okay to call your former members “domestic terrorists” in an effort to silence criticism.
- The church has so little respect for women and others affected by domestic violence that it abuses the protective order system to try to shut down critics. And Bob Malm, Kemp Williams, Jean Reed and others toss around references to mental illness with careless abandon.
- The vestry, staff, members, and current clergy are good with all of this; indeed, they defend it in court and continue to give of their time, talent and treasure to support these forms of misconduct.
In short, Grace Episcopal is morally bankrupt and makes no bones about it.
