Cosby Exposed by One Woman after Another.
Prime Example of Victim Control

Bill Cosby's history has caught up with him.
Time wounds all heels.
If he gave enough money to Wisconsin Lutheran College,
they would name a building after him.

Long ago Bill Cosby gave me the creeps. I watched the cartoon show he narrated, and refused to let it be on our TV again. Either he was high on dope when onscreen, or pretending to be. I wondered how this children's show - Fat Albert - could be worthwhile for anyone, especially children. Needless to say, this contributed to stoners being considered cool. And later, we elected one President, who confessed to pot and cocaine in his ghost-written autobiography.

The media often try people in the public eye and find them guilty. But the string of accusations have a legal case behind them. Cosby had to settle with about 13 women at once. The terms were sealed, of course, and "everyone was happy with the resolution."

More women are going public with an identical tale. Cosby friended them, offered them help in their careers, then gave them wine and a pill. When they tried to press rape charges, the lawyers and publicists made sure their money-bucket was untouched.

WELS, LCMS, the Little Sect, and the CLC (sic) are happy to prop up repeat sex offenders and clobber anyone who tells the truth about their deliberate obstruction of justice (a felony). I have a list of specific examples from each abusive sect listed above. In fact, I helped the attorney for the plaintiff (a young girl) win an initial $400,000 settlement against WELS, Pastor Fred Adrian, and the Michigan District - the Zerbe case.

The DP-without-Portfolio, Herman Otten, spiked my story on the Zerbe case and was quite indignant with me for sending it. The ELS made sure I lost a couple of friends over it, too.  I could tell WELS-ELS pushback was operating at max speed.

In the LCMS, when a DP guided a convicted sex offender into parish minister - and he offended again - SP Matt Harrison (buddy of Paul McCain) ordered Steadfast Lutherans to erase their thread on the case, where all the facts were laid out. The editor who agreed to this farce told me about Harrison, expressed his sorrow, and played dead. Soon after he was promoted to a better position and he became quite obnoxious with me on FB. Missouri pushback - flank speed, taking no prisoners. The DP who guided the sex offender into parish ministry was re-elected.

I am permanently banned on Steadfast Lutherans, a very high honor - though it comes from shills, pimps, frauds, and peculators.

Is the Olde Synodical Conference trying to catch up with the Hyles sect? That minister kept his mistress nearby while pretending to be a rock-ribbed Babtist preacher. His son-in-law was so out of bounds that they finally tossed him in the clink for sex with minor girls, aided by staff members, as his father-in-law was. Son-in-law took over the Hyles church by marrying and betraying the daughter. Thus the sins of one generation are visited on the next.

I often think of the mousy weasels of the Michigan District, who could not stand up to the situation in Columbus, Ohio - except to boost their careers - as John Seifert did.

Remember the warning of Slick Brenner - judgement starts with the House of God, and it will be fierce.

WELS has been shaken by The Shattered Pulpit blog, and they are in full mind-control reaction now. WELS does the following, as the others do with a little more finesse:

  1. Isolate the person telling the truth.
  2. Slander the victim.
  3. Get the victim's friends to silence her - "You are hurting Holy Mother Church."
  4. Send tons of anger her way, to show how bad the sin of truth is. Holy Mother is furious!
  5. Urge erasing of the blog (Issues in WELS, Bailing Water, Polluted WELS).
  6. Drive people away from supporting the truth (see the Intrepid Lutherans, where death squads were dispatched to get pastors and laity to unsign. Even the founder bailed!)
  7. Control the story by telling a sanitized version that everyone can tell to displace the truth.
  8. Forget it ever happened. "I don't know anything about that."
  9. Make sure everyone has to confess the source of the story. React with horror!
  10. Sue the person who objects. Make it a massive reaction to show how horrible it is to object to sinful behavior.

Ski, Glende, and Bishop Katy went to hear their idol,
Mark Driscoll.
May their work prosper in the same way as Driscoll's.

Greggy,

So you thought Bill Cosby was on drugs during his segments on Fat Albert & the Cosby Kids?

What, exactly, were YOU smoking to make you think so?

Cheers,

Joel Lillo
Fox Valley WELS Pastor and NWD apologist
(Thought I'd save you the effort of typing that this time.)

GJ - Joel, please read the sentence over again, including the highlighted part. 

Secondly, check into a really good and caring Twelve Step program. You are addicted to reading this blog, even though you have sworn off many times.. 

1. We admitted we were powerless over Ichabod—that our lives and emotions had become 
unmanageable. 
2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to 
sanity. 
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God according to the same Book of Concord that we ignored and scorned for so long.
4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves, as disgusting as that might be.
5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature 
of our wrongs, especially our pathetic Pietistic UOJ dogma.
6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character and doctrine. 
7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings and help us read the Confessions.
8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make 
amends to them all. Or at least the first thousand or two.
9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do 
so would injure them or others. 
10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly 
admitted it. That was a first!
11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with 
God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us 
and the power to carry that out. 
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to 
carry this message to Ichabodics, and to practice these principles in all our 
affairs. And rely on the Means of Grace instead of Driscoll, Stanley, and Rick Warren.

Greg,

Is Lillo on your payroll to play the part of the Pharisaical bumbling frat boy?  Or does he just not grasp the concept of a logical observation based on how Cosby was acting?  Or both.  

It looks like you are simply using the example of Cosby to show people how sin operates.  And then cite examples on how the WELS operates the same way from top to bottom in the "leadership" chain.

The WELS must have missed in the story of David & Bathsheba how sin makes every effort to hide what it has done from the public.  And missed how the apostles hung themselves out in the Gospels for every future generation to see.  

In Christ,

Wondering

GJ - Indeed - Lillo could be my highly paid source on all the wrongs of the Anything Goes District. He seems determined to run up my views.
