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.

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)!

More on the Search Process

If you are an interim and considering a call to Grace Church, you already have figured out that you not only have 30 years of Bob Malm’s narcissistic legacy to deal with. You also have a mountain of conflict, an active lawsuit, and profound reputational issues to deal with. And people at Grace church often don’t realize just how spectacularly inappropriate their behavior is; in many cases, such behavior is normative.

That said, I also feel that it’s fair to point out that you soon will have me and other protesters directly outside the church during Sunday and other services. I also am giving serious thought to ending my self-imposed ban on protesting outside weddings and funerals, as well as outside the homes of clergy and staff.

So, this is in no way a threat, but it is only fair to put my cards on the table. And no amount of perjury on the part of the church or fabrications by its attorney will prevent me from exercising my First Amendment rights to speak about my experiences with the parish, with perjuring priest Bob Malm, and with Sugarland Chiow.

The only thing that will stop me and other from calling Grace Episcopal out for being the fake church  that it is is to become a real church — a place where people care for God, for each other, and where they recognize that bullying, clergy perjury, or Sugarland Chiow’s hateful, inflammatory rhetoric are never acceptable. Or threatening me. Or Mike’s job. Or trying to drag a dying woman into court.

And as long as folks refuse to admit that Bob Malm is a perjurer, we have nothing to discuss.

Coming Soon to a Diocesan Convention Near You!

Despite Dysfunctional Bob’s departure, I continue to stand up to the narcissistic bully that is the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. With that in mind, I’m continuing to protest throughout the Alexandria area, including making the rounds of area Episcopal churches, schools, etc. 


I’m also continuing to leaflet and will be making a special guest appearance outside the diocesan convention in November.

The current court order expires in late January, and the following Sunday I and a small group of fellow protestors will be outside Grace Church, just in time for the parish annual meeting. Included in the crowd will be at least two fellow bloggers, and I believe there will be at least one major media outlet reporter in the mix. Shortly afterwards is the first hearing in the Virginia lawsuit, and I anticipate that I will interplead (add) additional defendants at that time.

So, prospective interims, welcome to Planet Malm! See you at Dysfunction Junction (Bob Malm’s rather Christlike description for my favorite protest corner), and on the sidewalk in front of the church. Even better, part of your new church home is named after perjuring priest Bob Malm: The Malm Narthex, aka Perjury Place.

Fun times on Planet Malm!

Leafleting This Week

Later this week I will leafleting a large swath of the city, with a focus on a high-value area near King Street. Efforts likely will spill into next week, but I plan to do another 1,000 homes in short order. 

I’m also gearing up to increase visibility coming into the holidays, including ramping up at shopping areas and near Metro stations.

Fun times!

Upcoming Protests and Leafletting



Despite Dysfunctional Bob’s departure from Grace Church this Sunday, I will continue to protest and leaflet. Plans are to leaflet a stretch of King Street, as well as to protest at several of my favorite locations.

See you there!

Protests and Dysfunctional Bob’s Retirement

With news of Dysfunctional Bob’s retirement now official (and woefully overdue), someone asked if things here at BobMalm.com will change. The answer, at least for now, is a resounding “Hell no!”

Why? The answer is easy. It’s because of the complicity of people like Sugarland Chiow, with his inflammatory rhetoric, various courtroom falsehoods, and efforts to bully the dying. It’s about the Lisa Medley’s and Leslie Malm’s of the church, with their lies. It’s about the Eric Waskowiscz’s and Amy Medrick’s of the parish, with their middle fingers in the air, testifying to the reality of their Christian faith.  It’s about the Alison Campbell’s who don’t see any conflict between bullying people and their claim to be Christians (or feel justified based on their faulty understanding of my conflict with Kelly Gable.) And it’s about the college-aged parishioner who thinks it’s okay to urge people to commit suicide. (That BTW, is a sign of a seriously skewed ethical reference point and an utterly bankrupt “Christian” faith as well as possible mental illness.) 

Then we have Kirk Steffensen threatening Mike’s job, Leslie Steffensen and her innuendo to third parties that I can’t be trusted with money, and the fabrications from Bob Malm’s kids, claiming I steered work to AES; wonder who gave them that idea. Not.

And the list goes on.

It’s also about all those referenced above who dutifully drag their children to church, never thinking that their children are or someday will be smart enough to recognize the hypocrisy of their parents. (Does Sugarland Chiow really think his kids will read his various courtroom fabrications and still consider themselves to be Christians? Or see that their father supported Dysfunctional Bob’s facially obvious taking words out of context as part of his request for a protective order? Or not understand that doing so is every bit as much a lie as telling an outright falsehood? Color Jeff and his wife clueless.)

In short, Grace Episcopal church is mired in hypocrisy and conflict after 30 years of Dysfunctional Bob. It is a toxic church and will continue to be a toxic church long after Dysfunctional Bob drags his lazy, fat, perjuring carcass off to Jekyll Island.

For the record, nothing I have seen suggests that people at the church understand what a screwed up place it is, or how many people have been hurt, both by Bob’s narcissism and by the church’s organizational narcissism.

Moreover, people need to know that this is how Grace Church rolls. Yes, people are friendly, but that in no way offsets the abusive behavior that occurs at every level of the church. Those considering getting involved in the church need to know that this sort of thing is part and parcel of life on Planet Malm.

Oh, and beginning February 2020, should Dysfunctional Bob decide to work as an interim or supply clergy, I or others may show up to protest. People need to know that this is the sort of priest that Bob is.

So, no changes here.

Protests Today: Wonder if Dysfunctional Bob Will Show Up and Make More Terroristic Threats

Later today, I’ll be leafletting another large swath of Alexandria, and protesting along Russell Road. Anyone wanting to say hello or, as the good Christians of Grace Episcopal are wont to do, flip me the bird, are welcome to roll by Perjury Place around 3.

I wonder if Dysfunctional Bob will roll by and make more terroristic threats. If so, I’ll not only get some great video footage, but I’ll also immediately file criminal charges against Bob. 

Bob Malm, perjuring priest.

Protests This Week

Things have been a bit busy lately, with the result that I haven’t been able to protest as much as usual. But lest anyone conclude that this presages a general slowdown, rest assured that I’ll be out at least two days this week. Plans also include leafleting a swath of Beverly Hills that I have not previously done.

Busy week ahead!

This Week: Protests and More Leafleting

So today’s protests plans had to be called off due to some latebreaking issues, but things are on for this week. I’ll be leafleting more of Beverly Hills, and I plan to surface at Mayo House sometime this week to remind folks of Bob Malm’s perjury and the diocese’s laissez-fair attitude towards that matter.

More to come!

Greetings from Historic Christ Church

Sunday greetings from historic Christ Church!

Beautiful weather, and most people have been very nice. As always, a few laughable moments, including:
  • Christine Cheever, a member of Grace Church, mind already made up, who claimed that it’s not possible that Bob committed perjury on the basis that she “knows him.”  Nothing like faith in all the wrong things, eh?
  • One parishioner, who asked how I could perjure “a good man like Bob Malm,” to which I replied, “It happens to be true, and if he disagrees, he’s more than welcome to sue.”
  • Another parishioner, in full-on passive-aggressive mode, who said, “I don’t know what this has to do with Christ Church.” Um, body of Christ, anyone?
  • Several with the nervous but smug half-smile that churchgoers trot out when they don’t know how to respond to something that rattles their stained glass tower.
Of course, no one got the other part right: Inviting the lepers at the gate in for coffee. Only evangelical churches have ever gotten that side of things. I mean, if you’re a Christian, and you see someone hungry, thirsty, or hurt by the church, why wouldn’t you invite him in? Something about as you have done to the least of these. (Clergy entirely avoided me, BTW.)

Oh well. That’s Christianity for you.But again, on the whole folks here are very nice.

This Weekend: More Protests and Leafletting

This weekend, I plan to protest outside one of Alexandria’s Episcopal churches on Sunday; I’ll keep which one close to the vest for now.

I also plan to leaflet at least 250 more homes, again focusing on Beverly Hills and the area around Grace Church.

Fun times!

Looking Ahead to 2019: More Protests and Possible Lawsuits

As we get ready to move into 2019, protests continue over Dysfunctional Bob Malm’s conduct, as well as that of Jeff “Sugarland” Chiow. Look for me and others at:

1) King and Seminary aka Dysfunction Junction aka Malm Square(d)
2) the monument at Braddock and Russell Road
3) the front of MOM’s
4) the intersection of Commonwealth and Mount Vernon avenues.
5) 395 during rush hour

Although we have not yet made a final go/no-go decision, I believe it likely that I and several other plaintiffs will file suit against the church, vestry, Bob Malm and family, and several individual parishioners in Federal district court in late January. Assuming we proceed, a second lawsuit is expected later in the spring.

Stay tuned for details.

Protests this Weekend

Planning to get an early start on the weekend with some protesting outside the Emmanuel-on-the-Hill pumpkin patch. I may also make an appearance at Bob Malm’s favorite, which he refers to as “Dysfunction Junction.”

On Sunday, I plan both to protest, and to leaflet certain high-value audiences. In addition, making plans now for extensive social media coverage and protests in the run-up to Christmas. 

Stay tuned!

Next Week: Protests at Mayo House

I’m not sure yet what day it will be, but next week I hope to get in an afternoon of protests outside of Episcopal Diocese of Virginia headquarters at Mayo House in Richmond. Sunshine, fresh air, mild temps—what could be better?

Details as soon as possible.

Coming Soon: New Signage

In light of Bob Malm’s references to me and Mom as “domestic terrorists” in his court filings, including his Motion for Reconsideration filed with the Venango County Court of Common Pleas, I have decided to add additional signage for my protests. The new signage should be here in the next week or so.

Check it out!

Protests This Weekend at Malm Squared(d) aka Dysfunction Junction

With the beautiful fall weather, it’s a better time than ever to protest. So look for me this Sunday at Malm Square(d) aka Dysfunction Junction aka the corner of King and Quaker Lane.

I’ll also soon have additional signage in honor of all my friends in Sugarland Texas, as well as some very special guests who will be joining me. 

Stay tuned for another exciting chapter in the life of Grace Episcopal Alexandria, aka St. Dysfunction.

See for Yourself: Email Conclusively Shows Alexandria City Officials Working with Grace to Suppress First Amendment Activities

I recently obtained a copy of the attached internal email, in which city of Alexandria police officials acknowledge in writing their efforts to identify legal strategies to suppress First Amendment-protected protests outside the church and online criticism.

My opinion: The City of Alexandria should not be providing free legal advice in civil matters, and certainly not when the First Amendment comes into play.

This Week’s Protests

It’s shaping up to be another busy week of protests.

As things stand, I’ll be in one of the usual places Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday for rush hour, as well as several hours mid-day Sunday.

See you then!
