There’s something about Grace Episcopal that breeds hypocrites. Maybe it’s lead in the water pipes. Maybe it’s, as one priest has put it, “an evil spirit.” Or more likely it’s 30 years of perjuring priest Bob Malm.
Check out the amusing screen cap of Matthew Dumont-Machowski’s Twitter page that follows:
Meanwhile, if you go to Matt’s website, he bloviates on about refugees, human rights, etc. All worthy endeavors and appropriate for public scrutiny, but meanwhile Matt would do better to look right underneath his nose at Bob Malm’s perjury, his efforts to drag a dying woman into court, his deliberate misuse of church memorial donations, his lies to parishioners, and his feckless approach to being rector. Or, while we’re on the topic of human rights, maybe Matt would be so kind at to share his views on the ethics of a $100,000 bonus for Bob Malm, while cutting health care benefits to parish employees. Or perhaps he can tell me how parishioners urging me to commit suicide comports with his notion of Christianity.
Or let’s cut to the quick and just ask Matt to proffer one iota of support for Bob Malm’s sworn testimony, signed in front of notary and parishioner Jane Rosman, that my mother or someone purporting to be her contacted Bob repeatedly to set up appointments. Should be an easy request—as clergy, isn’t Matt supposed to be resisting injustice and oppression? Or are those just pretty but meaningless words?
The good news is that, given its current trajectory, the Episcopal Church only has about 27 more Easters to go. Frankly, being rid of the self-righteous hypocrisy of Matt and so many other Episcopal clergy won’t come a day too soon.
