Lie 1: Sigrid Yahner set up appointments with me and no-showed. That’s how I know that her blog actually is Eric’s Lie 2: I don’t recall speaking to her. Lie 3: I didn’t even know her name. And Grace Episcopal Alexandria and the diocese still have perjuring priest Bob Malm’s back. Birds of a feather….
UPDATE: February 2021. Perjuring priest Bob Malm now claims, in sworn courtroom testimony, that his discovery responses are “some form prepared by my attorney.” Leaving aside the fact that the content and diction is unmistakably Bob’s, three things: Perjuring priest Bob Malm still swore it was true, regardless of who prepared the document. By lying about who prepared… Read More »
Earlier today, I completed my draft of a civil complaint against perjuring priest Bob Malm in the Wareham Massachusetts district court. The suit alleges abuse of process, defamation, and the intentional infliction of emotional distress. I’m still working on the attachments, but the suit should be filed sometime on Monday. As stated previously, separate lawsuits are coming against… Read More »
In the midst of the myriad ad hominem attacks from Leslie Malm, Lindsey Malm, Lisa Medley and others, there’s one consistent factor: No one ever denies that Bob Malm is a perjurer. Indeed, even the law firm representing the diocese, Bishop Goff, and the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia has never denied that Bob Malm is a perjurer. Does… Read More »
One of the profoundly troubling things about Grace Episcopal Church is the juxtaposition of the blind trust that members place in Bob Malm and his fabrications with the fact that many parishioners work for the federal government and organizations covered by the ethics provisions of Gramm-Rudman and Sarbanes-Oxley. And that’s all the more the case following the appalling… Read More »
Given that David Crosby likes to materialize here in cyber from time to time with with his hypocritical church-speak, Jesus-babble, and claims to be able to assess mental illness without so much as speaking directly to the subject, here’s a quote for him from Canon Robin Hammeal-Urban’s excellent book on clergy misconduct, “Wholeness After Betrayal”: By failing to… Read More »
There’s a good podcast on Christianity Today (“CT”) that discusses spiritual abuse in churches, why it’s often difficult to spot, and typically even harder to address. The information is very relevant to Grace Episcopal Church and the spiritual abuse/toxic dynamics within the parish. Take a listen here. Key points: Spiritual abuse, which often involves bullying and manipulation, typically is… Read More »
Earlier today, I received a copy of a document indicating that Lindsey Anders and Leslie Malm are now represented by legal counsel in Alexandria. Out of respect for the attorney involved, I am not yet prepared to disclose the document, nor the identity of legal counsel. I do, however, want to reflect on the challenges facing legal counsel… Read More »
You have to hand it to The Episcopal Church—it is remarkably stubborn in its defense of abuse. In fact, if it took such an extreme stand on women’s rights, LGBTQ+ issues, and other important social issues, it would have been ordaining women in the 1700’s. Doubt it? More than 2,000 signatories later, Bishop Susan Goff continues to hang… Read More »
Here’s a good one: Another Title IV notice of dismissal from the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. Where to start? First, there is no requirement of a criminal conviction for conduct to be prohibited under Title IV. Indeed, Canon IV.4.1(h.6) makes clear that conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation is forbidden, period. Second, it is not the role of the… Read More »
Earlier today, I got some good news, which is that the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests (SNAP) will start sharing information on my change.org petition to hold perjuring priest Bob Malm accountable. Additionally, executive director Zach Heiner signed my petition. Good news as we move into 2020.
Someone recently asked me why the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia continues to defend Bob Malm, his perjury, and Grace Episcopal’s attempts to game the legal system. Of course, only the diocese knows for sure, but I believe I know why. In large measure, it’s the same paradigm, I believe, as led diocesan officials to support Bishop Bruno, despite… Read More »
Here is a good reminder of Bob Malm’s manipulative, dishonest conduct. At a time when Bob was claiming he needed a protective order to deal with threats from me — threats that he refused to specify, even when ordered by the court to do so — Bob was making statements against interest, including this email to the Episcopal… Read More »
This Christmas, remember the true meaning of the holiday: Compassion, kindness, love. Boycott Grace Episcopal, the clergy perjury parish, where clergy lie under oath with impunity and it’s okay to drag the dying into court.
Updated information confirms service of process on Bishop Susan Goff, the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia, and Grace Episcopal Alexandria. It will be interesting to see how the good Christians at Grace Church respond to my request for documentation that mom “time after time” makes appointments with perjuring priest Bob Malm. Will they tell the truth? Will they admit… Read More »
Earlier today subpoenas went out in my lawsuit against Grace Episcopal Church, Susan Goff, and the diocese. Most likely, Grace will receive its subpoena tomorrow, while Susan Goff’s subpoena may take a day or so. Both are for the production of documents. Following is the email I sent to the diocese and Grace church’s vestry. In a nutshell,… Read More »
Let’s face it. Bob Malm’s good at going after dying women, bullying persons like Mike recently received into The Episcopal Church, ignoring the canons, and making excuses why, after 25 years of his lazy backside, Grace Church still didn’t have the finance manual required by church canons. That said, he wasn’t so good at explaining the thousands of… Read More »
Following the childish antics of Grace parishioners while I protested outside Dysfunctional Bob’s farewell, I sent the following email to bishop Susan Goff and several diocesan officials. * * * * As you may be aware, I continue to protest Bob Malm’s perjury and Grace Episcopal’s organizational misconduct, while being careful to remain beyond 1,000 feet from the… Read More »
Some time ago, the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia elected the Rev. Susan B. Haynes as bishop diocesan. Because her consecration still must be approved by a majority of bishops in the House of Bishops, I wanted to make sure that diocesan officials understand the profound concerns I have about Sven’s qualifications. With that in mind, here is… Read More »
Tonight’s gala reception for Bob Malm underscores why many at Grace Episcopal deserve exactly what they get. Meaning that they deserve Bob Malm, and all the baggage that comes with him, including his perjury, his multiple abuses of power, his bullying, his manipulation, and his feckless attitude towards being rector, despite being paid more than many senior denominational… Read More »
In his most recent sermon posted to the church website, perjuring priest Bob Malm bloviates on about caring for those who feel cast out. So how does that square with Bob Malm forcing Mike out out of the church? Here is the relevant part of Bob’s sermon: And here is Bob’s email, in which, in true passive-aggressive Bob… Read More »
Join perjuring priest Bob Malm Friday, September 27 at Grace Episcopal for an adults-only reception, celebrating 30 years of Bob’s so-called ministry—spreading the Good News of Jesus, one beach at a time.
