Check it Out: Perjuring Priest Bob Malm Lies to Bishop Shannon Johnston

Members of Grace Church may recall that, while at Grace Church, I served as executive director of RPJ Housing, a non-profit dedicated to serving those of limited means by providing safe, clean, affordable housing.

While executive director, I hired Kelly Motormouth Gable, after her mother complained to me about the financial challenges they were facing. While Kelly was, at best, an average employee, she asked if I objected to her staying on when I left the organization, to which I replied “no.”

Recently, the attached email from Kelly to Bob Malm, then to the Episcopal bishop of Virginia, came to light.

In it, Bob lies. That’s right — Bob Malm lies to the bishop. And Bob’s lie is readily proved, for elsewhere, under oath, Bob Malm contradicts himself.

Specifically, he claims that Kelly’s assertions predate my arrival at Grace. Yet Bob Malm knew firsthand of these issues, having heard directly from me. Moreover, he provided pastoral care to Kelly on this issues, and referenced them in his request for a protective order.

Here is the email, with Bob’s lie circled, as well as that of Kelly Gable:

And here is Bob Malm’s reference in his affidavit for a protective order in which he specifically references the legal skirmishing that happened when I left RPJ Housing:

So why does perjuring priest Bob Malm lie in his email to the bishop? As previously discussed, my belief is that he wanted to trash me with diocesan staff, while avoiding the incovenient question of why he would have someone allegedly so untrustworthy serving on the vestry. I therefore conclude that Bob changed the timeline so as to have his cake and eat it too.

The great irony in all of this is that there are still folks at Grace Episcopal who refuse to believe that Bob Malm is a liar, who continue to support him, and who continue to be part of a denomination so morally bankrupt that this sort of behavior is okay for clergy. Just remember—this is a diocese that can say with a straight face that it won’t deal with Bob Malm’s perjury on the basis that he hasn’t actually been convicted of the crime of perjury.

And to anyone who still thinks they will experience God at Grace Church, all I can say is that they are proceeding on blind faith. Perjury, defamation per se — this is just about the most toxic parish you could ever encounter.

See for Yourself: Bob Malm Perjury

During discovery, Bob Malm stated under oath that Mom and other family members repeatedly made appointments with him and no-showed. This was part of his purported reason for his claim that I am, in fact, the author of Mom’s blog. There’s just one little wrinkle in all of this: Mom has NEVER made an appointment with Bob, nor has ANYONE done so on her behalf.

In other words, Bob committed perjury.

Here is what Bob wrote, again under oath:

And here is Mom’s response:

And here is my meme summarizing Bob’s perjury:

Oh, and by the way, if Bob tells you that this is defamation, ask him for proof that these meetings were scheduled.

He has none.

Bob Malm, the perjuring priest.

See for Yourself: Bob Malm’s Multiple Lies and Evasions Under Oath

In the attached interrogatories, which Dysfunctional Bob answered under oath, Bob told several lies and repeatedly evaded answering legitimate questions. In addition, several of his responses are logically inconsistent.

That begs the question: If Bob really felt threatened, why not lay his cards on the table? Why the fun and games? And why, if he fears I wouldn’t honor an agreement in resolution of this conflict, did he just send over a settlement proposal? “I was threatened. Now just quit blogging and we’re cool.”

Doesn’t work that way.

Moreover, Jeff “Sugarland” Chiow, by endorsing and supporting Bob’s evasions and untruths, has undercut the church’s moral authority in this matter. Readers can quickly see that the church is morally bankrupt. And it’s not just one minor issue—throughout this matter the church’s conduct has been outrageous and appalling, including trying to subpoena a dying woman. All I can say is I hope Bob’s mom didn’t have to deal with asshats like this as she was dying.

First, Bob’s lies:
  1. Meetings were NOT repeatedly cancelled between him and various family members. Mom never asked to meet Bob, nor would she. (To use the phrase from “A Home of My Own,” she’d rather swallow cat um, urine.) One meeting was canceled between Bob and my friend and relative, Liz, after Bob informed her at the last minute that he couldn’t keep the appointment as he’d planned for several weeks to be out of town. Given that she was already on the road, the meeting simply wasn’t doable, and Bob’s lack of prior notice was, at a minimum, rude. But what else would you expect?
  2. As he well knows, his daughter Lindsey has repeatedly blogged about the matter. Yet he claims it’s only his wife.
  3. Dysfunctional Bob claims he didn’t lie when we met with the bishop. This is flagrantly false. The exact words of his lie: “Having resigned from the vestry, you were no longer eligible to serve as a trustee.” To which I replied, “Why, then, are none of your current trustees vestry members?” The fact that Bob can look his own bishop in the eye and lie is appalling.
Second, his inconsistencies:
  1. Where’s the penitent in all of this? Just because a priest is in the room doesn’t mean something is confidential. Sorry to spring it on you, Chiow.
  2. Bob says that the voice of my blog and Mom’s blog is similar, yet he claims in hers that it’s shifted to being angry. So which is it?
  3. Bob says he doesn’t think I’d abide by any agreement, yet he just offered to settle. Huh?
  4. Bob uses the word “terror” repeatedly on the church blog, as well as the phrase “white supremacist.” If mere use of a word is a threat, Bob is seriously threatening, as is the church, and is a white supremacist to boot. But then, given his efforts to shut down First Amendment rights, I wouldn’t be surprised. Heil Malm!
  5. Bob claims that clergy disciplinary proceedings are confidential, yet he disclosed earlier proceedings against him to Jeff Aaron and Jeff “Sugarland” Chiow, as well as church staff. How does that work?
Needless to say, Dysfunctional Bob’s not only not a real priest; he’s got some other issues as well.
