Bob Malm: Club Protest Membership Countdown

By virtue of trying to shutdown criticism by going to court with his facially false claims that he had been threatened, pseudo-priest Bob Malm and Grace Episcopal signed up for the two-year membership at Club Protest. No refunds, late payments result in an extension of membership. And his decision to include Mike in his vendetta, his multiple lies in court, and his efforts to subpoena a dying woman, all mean Bob gets the special VIP add-on package — my online presence will continue ad infinitum. That’s right, Dysfunctional Bob gets the lifetime virtual membership. Hey, Bob always did think he was special. Well, he’s right.

So, this countdown timer doesn’t mark the countdown to an end to open hostilities. But it does mark the payout of Dysfunctional Bob’s basic Club Protest membership.That said, I have always believed in under-promise, over-deliver, so I will no doubt extend Bob’s basic membership well beyond his original contract. And Grace Episcopal gets in on the action, for free.

By the way, if you see that the counter has passed zero and is counting up, that means that perjuring priest Bob Malm and the parish are enjoying their special free bonus time.

Hey, if he behaves, maybe we can even spot Bob some core body fitness tips. Heaven knows he’s been looking rather well-fed in recent years. And it fits — Grace Church aka St. Dysfunction is looking a whole lot leaner and meaner these days.

See you at Dysfunction Junction aka Malm Square(d)!

BUSTED: Perjuring Priest Bob Malm Caught Lying to Bishop!

Episcopal priest Bob Malm

Check it out: In perjuring priest Bob Malm’s court filings, he PROVES conclusively that he lied to bishop Shannon Johnston. Yup, this comes directly from his own court filings, and is an email he sent to the bishop.

Specifically, he claims that I left RPJ Housing prior to coming to Grace. As he well knows, that is a boldfaced lie, and he discussed the matter with Elizabeth Legere in January 2014, and with Kelly Gable and me. And Patrick Crerar and I discussed the matter many times, with my even hiring a member of La Gracia following discussions with him. And then there is Amy Barron, who worked at RPJ Housing’s offices at the Church of the Covenant.

So, if there was any doubt that Bob Malm is a lying POS, this should put those doubts firmly to rest. And if anyone doubts my claims, I will be more than happy to subpoena multiple witnesses who can conclusively show that I was, in fact, executive director of RPJ Housing while a member of Grace Church. So, if Bob doesn’t agree that he lied to Bishop Shannon Johnston, he is more than welcome to file suit for defamation. In fact, I encourage him to do so.

More on Sugarland Chiow and Grace Episcopal’s Fraudulent Concealment of Evidence

As we prepare to debate in motions court the issue of the statute of limitations and its applicability to my lawsuit against Kelly for her defamation per se, there is a damning wrinkle right behind the scenes that most parishioners would not spot. Specifically, Sugarland Chiow had an ethical and legal obligation to produce the email in question.

Pursuant to the ABA model rules, which govern attorney conduct and were adopted by Virginia in 1999, attorneys have an obligation not to conceal evidence relevant to the other side, to make full and effective efforts to protect and preserve information, and to avoid destruction of evidence.

We already know that Sugarland Chiow engaged in questionable conduct in this space. For example, he redacted an email from Jeff Aaron to Caroline Parkinson, the diocesan intake officer. In the email, Jeff revealed that Bob Malm violated church confidentiality provisions regarding clergy disciplinary complaints, for he wrote to Caroline Parkinson to discuss the matter, even asking if it was okay to contact my employer about the matter. 

How did I find out about Sugarland’s concealment? I found out when he sloppily tripped himself up by providing an unredacted copy of the same email. Oops.

In the case of Kelly’s defamation per se, Jeff had a legal obligation as the church’s attorney to make reasonable inquiry about documents subject to discovery. Leaving aside the question why the email in question wouldn’t have been in Bob’s sent folder, he had only to ask vestry members or the diocese for relevant materials. Thus, Sugarland either has an ethical problem on his hands due to failure to adhere to the duty of care imposed on him as the church’s legal counsel, or he has an ethical problem on his hands due to the fact that he had access to the email in question but didn’t produce it.

In other words, no matter how you parse it, Sugarland Chiow at a minimum damaged the church’s reputation, and quite possibly engaged in illegal conduct. I think few would contend he met his ethical obligations as an attorney.

What’s even more ugly is the pervasive pattern of conduct on the part of Sugarland, perjuring priest Bob Malm, and the church. From making up nonexistent places and events in Texas, to trying to drag a dying woman into court in violation of the law, to concealing evidence, to defamation per se by Kelly Motormouth Gable, to perjuring priest Bob Malm attempting to tortiously interfere with my employment, to perjuring priest Bob Malm’s going after Mike, it is hard to imagine a more toxic church or a more corrupt organization.

VIP Witnesses Prepared to Demolish Kelly Motormouth Gable’s Defamatory Per Se Statement

Kelly Gable Grace Episcopal Alexandria

Assuming the courts agree that my claim is not barred by the statute of limitations, Grace Episcopal the clergy perjury parish and Kelly Motormouth Gable should be prepared to lose, and lose big, in my lawsuit against them for defamation per se.

While I am not prepared to share specific names just yet, I have been in touch with multiple high-profile, well-placed witnesses who have firsthand knowledge (the real kind, versus Kelly’s version) of RPJ Housing’s financials, its cash flow, and its annual audit. In short, they can offer irrefutable evidence that Kelly is not only an idiot, a big mouth, and a gossip, but she has engaged in defamation per se. (I’ll give you a hint: You can’t steal from an organization that doesn’t have diddly.)

The other thing that’s noteworthy is that the evidence I have gathered will, when the time is right, be posted here and elsewhere for all the world to see. So even if the court holds that my claim is time-barred, people will see firsthand the kind of bull crud that goes on within Grace Episcopal the clergy perjury parish, its vestry and membership. And since the church and its insurance carrier are backing Kelly and her conduct, it is appropriate for people to examine the evidence that I post and reach the conclusion that Grace Church the clergy perjury parish and the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia are utterly unethical and totally corrupt.

As an aside, it’s also worth noting that while Kelly decries her allegedly miserable experience at RPJ Housing, she was hired primarily to assist her at a time when her mother had made clear that they were struggling financially. That right there should tell you something about Kelly and her attitude, and by extension the dynamics within Grace Episcopal Alexandria, the clergy perjury parish.

As things stand, there is no other possible conclusion.

Hopefully, Grace Episcopal Alexandria the clergy perjury parish will close its doors soon. The world will be a better place when it does.

Failing to Disclose Perjuring Priest Bob Malm’s Misconduct Causing Lasting Harm to Grace Church and the Diocese

One of the sad things about the current situation is that neither Grace Church, nor the vestry, nor the diocese/bishops, nor the Canon to the Ordinary, understand the long-term problems that are being caused for Grace Church or the diocese by their failure to disclose Bob Malm’s misconduct. And leadership at all levels is so wedded to their approach of deny, obfuscate, cover-up, litigate, and sit in splendid silence that I see any possibility that they will ever have the introspection to understand that they are destroying both Grace Church and the diocese.

Why does silence have this effect?

The answer has myriad components, but it can readily be summed up by saying that failing to disclose erodes confidence in the church at every level.

True to form, folks at Grace Church want to believe Bob Malm and his fabricated version of events. As a result, we see comments like Jean Reed’s clueless bit about how my disclosure defames Bob and the other “servants of Christ” at Grace. But true servants of Christ don’t commit perjury. They don’t try to drag dying women into court in violation of state law. They don’t lie repeatedly to their bishop. They don’t engage in personal vendettas in court against people who criticize them. They don’t urge others to commit suicide.

Even more importantly, real Christians bring light to the darkness. They resist injustice and oppression. They tell the truth, even when it’s not easy to do so. Unlike Bob Malm, they don’t respond to concerns with, “Why should I give a fuck?!” (Yes, there were witnesses.)

What makes the situation even more sad is that there are leaders at Grace Church who know enough about change management to understand they dilemma they face, but they simply are not taking action. These include Elizabeth Legere and Tracy Enger. Similarly, assistant Bishop Jennifer Brooke-Davidson and Canon Mary Thorpe both should know better, based on their training and professional experiences.

I’d also be prepared to bet that, if we discuss an out of court settlement, the first thing the diocese will insist on will be NOT admitting liability. The second will be confidentiality. Thus, true to form, the diocese will not follow a Christian model of healing, but a corporate model. (For the record, the latter is not going to fly with me. For once, the diocese is either going to conduct itself as a group of Christians, or I will hold it fully accountable at law. And if the church manages to win in court, that will be just that much more evidence that there is nothing Christian about Grace Church or the diocese, and I will share that with the world. The evidence is already there for the diocese and all the world to see: Bob Malm is a perjurer. Pure and simple. He committed his perjury as rector of Grace Church.)

The screen caps below are from the Rev. Robin Hammeal-Urban’s excellent book, “Wholeness After Betrayal: Restoring Trust In the Wake of Misconduct.” Robin serves as canon for mission integrity in the Diocese of Connecticut, and is considered possibly TEC’s leading authority on dealing with clergy misconduct. Her book, referenced elsewhere on this blog, is excellent; so much so that I sent copies to Shannon Johnston, Pat Wingo, and Caroline Parkinson.

Ironically, the diocese’s response to perjuring priest Bob Malm’s misconduct has been a virtual how-not-to, when compared to the best practices Robin details in her book. Regrettably, it is doubtful that any diocesan officials have read the book, for they have made no changes or improvements in their handling of disciplinary complaints, and continue to this day to make a hash out of things. Indeed, one former canon to the ordinary from EDOW noted the profound lack of training evinced by diocesan staff on handling misconduct and urged that they get additional training. Her recommendations were ignored.

Clearly, DioVA does not take clergy misconduct seriously, or treat those who have experienced misconduct with respect. It would rather engage in cover-up than tell the truth.

Below are screen caps from Robin’s book speaking to the problems that arise when misconduct is not disclosed, and the tendency of those in power to dismiss or write off those who bring these issues to light. Particularly relevant is the discussion about the long-term problems that arise when misconduct is not disclosed.

See for yourself.

Legal Update: Plaintiff’s Opposition to Lindsey Malm Anders’ Plea of Statute of Limitations

Attached is the plea I have filed in response to Lindsey Malm Anders’ plea of the statute of limitations. Inter alia, I note that her defamatory per se comments in which she suggests I have engaged in criminal activity are well within the one-year statute of limitations.

Meanwhile, plans are afoot to sue another individual connected with the parish in the coming days. Some of you have already figured out who it is, but I will leave specifics until suit actually is filed.

Another Shout Out to Candidates for Rector

Thinking about applying for the postion of rector at Grace Church Alexandria, the clergy perjury parish? If so, the screen cap that follows should make you think twice.

The post, which was authored by a then college-aged member of the parish, reflects the world view of someone who grew up in Grace Church. Both her parents have served on the vestry. Yet she sees no problem with urging others to commit suicide.

Even more telling is the fact that perjuring priest Bob Malm cited this screen cap in court as one the alleged threats made against him. Thus, one faces two possibilities:

1) That perjuring priest Bob Malm is a liar, which is well-established. If nothing else, his false claim that Mom or someone claiming to be her made appointments with him is an example in which he lied under oath, in writing, while advised by legal counsel, and notarized by parishioner Jane Rosman. In other words, he committed perjury. And then there is his claim that only his wife blogged about these issues, when he knew damned well that his daughter Lindsey had done so as well.
2) That perjuring priest Bob Malm is so delusional as to be unable to differentiate between reality and fantasy. I leave any conclusion on that issue to others.

Of course, one also must consider the fact that the vestry, the parish, and the diocese continue to defend Bob Malm’s conduct and engage in cover-up.

My take on it: Any priest who commits perjury, whether criminally charged or not, should be treated the same as a sex offender who has not faced criminal charges—he should be removed from ministry on an immediate basis, with the diocese and vestry telling the truth about what happened. The fact that the diocese does not take this action means neither it, nor the bishops, nor the vestry have any claim to moral legitimacy. There simply is no reason why perjury should be acceptable behavior for any member of the clergy. And if you can’t trust Susan Goff and the Episcopal Church to deal with criminal conduct by clergy, you surely are asking for trouble if you think they can deal with an issue like racial reconciliation.

Lastly, I would add that while I don’t know this to be a fact, I’m prepared to say it’s a safe bet that the diocese already knows that Bob Malm has perjured himself. There are enough attorneys in the mix, and the church’s insurance carrier is sufficiently involved, that they would be grossly negligent if they did not investigate the matter in order to ascertain potential liability. 

So, if you want to be rector of a parish where this sort of thing is okay, go for it. You and the parish deserve each other.

PS I’m adding a photo of Mom taken not long before her death, so you can think about what it means when Grace Church tries to drag a dying woman into court. Good luck with your job search. And just remember: If your name isn’t mud with the good Christians of Grace Episcopal Alexandria, the clergy perjury parish, you have some serious ethical and spiritual issues.

Sigrid Yahner, the dying woman perjuring priest Bob Malm tried to drag into court

More News: Pennsylvania Litigation

A few minutes ago I got off the phone with the magistrate’s office in Venango County, which I contacted to request a continuance, as I will be in motions court on the Virginia cases on July 24. I anticipate that the Pennsylvania hearing will be held no earlier than July 31.

During my conversation with the clerk of court, I learned that perjuring priest Bob Malm will be represented by Rachel Enger, an associate at the Pittsburgh office of Cozen Connor. Her bio is below.

It will be interesting to see how perjuring priest Bob Malm defends his decision to try to drag a dying woman into court for depositions in violation of Pennsylvania law; recall that leave of court is required when someone seeks discovery in a protection from abuse case.

As an aside, if you are a candidate for rector, or are looking for a new church home, you should know that this sort of thing is acceptable at Grace Episcopal Church. Even Bob Malm’s perjury is okay with Bishop Susan Goff—after all, the diocese has said in writing that it won’t address Bob Malm’s perjury on the specious grounds that he hasn’t been convicted.

But then, maybe perjuring priest Bob Malm will be kind enough to provide his documentation that my mom, or someone purporting to be her, repeatedly made appointments with him, only to cancel.

We’ll wait.

BREAKING NEWS: Perjuring Priest Bob Malm Says He Plans to Defend His Efforts to Drag a Dying Woman into Court

Want to see what a scumbag perjuring priest Bob Malm is? In today’s mail, I got a notice that perjuring priest Bob Malm intends to defend the lawsuit in PA, in which I am asking the court to award Mom’s attorney fees after perjuring priest Bob Malm tried to drag my mother, then terminally ill, into court for depositions.

In case I haven’t been clear on this, let me say again: Any priest who would, in violation of state law, try to drag a dying woman into court in pursuit of his vendetta, is trailer park trash. Even worse, through Sugarland Chiow, perjuring priest Bob Malm later tried to mislead the courts.

At the heart of the matter is Bob’s effort to subpoena my mother in the prior litigation. As part of that, he attempted to domesticate a Virginia subpoena in Pennsylvania, in violation of Pennsylvania law. Pursuant to Rule 1930.5 of the state’s rules of civil procedure, there is no discovery in protection from abuse cases absent leave of court. That’s right. No subpoenas. No depositions. No interrogatories. No requests for admission. No answers to written questions. You must get leave of court first. I repeat: You must get leave of court first.

Perjuring priest Bob Malm tried to subpoena a dying woman

Yet Bob decided to show up, try to subpoena a woman he knew was terminally ill, and attempt to drag her into court for depositions. No effort to obtain leave of court. Nothing. And it’s not like Sugarland Chiow’s law firm wasn’t able to research the relevant rules. Sugarland either didn’t bother to do his legal research, or he did his legal research and figured he’d ignore the law and try to pull a fast one on a dying woman.

To make matters worse, Sugarland later displayed some serious gaps in his memory. At one point, he argued that he had spoken with Mom’s attorney and she was doing just fine. At another point, Sugarland took an inconsistent tack, telling the courts that he was not aware that she was terminally ill. Yet her blog made very clear that she was terminally ill.

Then we get the comment from mom’s attorney, who said, “You’ll have to fill me in on the details of the case. That attorney is coming at you with a personal vendetta.”

The fact that perjuring priest Bob Malm and the Episcopal Church think that their conduct is defensible makes clear why this toxic church just needs to go away. If filing an illegal subpoena against a dying woman is something they think is okay, my response is, “No thanks. You can keep your toxic church, your toxic diocese, and your toxic denomination. Jesus came to free people from religious oppression. You are the oppressor.”

See for Yourself: My Amended Civil Complaint Against Perjuring Priest Bob Malm

With the late-breaking development of Kelly Motormouth Gable’s defamatory per se statement, which was republished and packaged with a lie by perjuring priest Bob Malm about the underlying context for Kelly’s defamatory statement, I have sought leave to amend my civil complaint against perjuring priest Bob Malm.

Below is my revised complaint against perjuring priest Bob Malm, complete with attachments.
