|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:
- Isolate the person telling the truth.
- Slander the victim.
- Get the victim's friends to silence her - "You are hurting Holy Mother Church."
- Send tons of anger her way, to show how bad the sin of truth is. Holy Mother is furious!
- Urge erasing of the blog (Issues in WELS, Bailing Water, Polluted WELS).
- 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!)
- Control the story by telling a sanitized version that everyone can tell to displace the truth.
- Forget it ever happened. "I don't know anything about that."
- Make sure everyone has to confess the source of the story. React with horror!
- 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,|
May their work prosper in the same way as Driscoll's.
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,
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.
