|Jeske covers for a fellow WELS pastor|
in the most bizarre smokescreen ever -
the Internet did it.
There is apparently enough server capacity on earth to preserve every word and picture that ever went into cyberspace. Good news for researchers and history nerds. Bad news if you assumed that you have any kind of “personal privacy” once you post or send something. A Lutheran pastor in Wisconsin just lost his job because the screen name, behind which he hid as he crudely and obscenely tried to flame somebody with whom he disagreed, turned out to be porous. He was outed, and then he was out of a job...
|Claire Van Fossen found out who sent the|
abusive and threatening email.
- Jeske omitted the fact that Wendt is a WELS pastor, who immediately resigned. Why resign while denying sending it?
- Wendt "tried to flame" Claire Van Fossen. Is that not strange, coming from a sect where the slightest imagined insult is portrayed as slander and an apology and retraction is demanded? Wendt used a series of vulgar terms, not unlike the language Ski and Glende (both Jeske veterans) used in front of women. That is not "trying to flame," as Jeske must know in his hip coolness. Flaming is an online argument with personal insults. Wendt's email went far beyond that.
- Worst of all, Wendt called the blogger "hot" and threatened to bring friends over to gang rape her.
- So Jeske has this down as "trying to flame" while omitting the crime of threatening to gang-rape the young woman with his friends. One mobster was put in prison simply for making a threat to an FBI agent.
- "He was outed and then he was out of a job." Not exactly, hipster guru Jeske. The young woman investigated who sent the email, and her associates discovered it was Pastor Dave Wendt, staff member at a $1 million a year budget WELS congregation in LaCrosse.
- I have been reading the First Evangelical Lutheran Church, LaCrosse website and the WELS website. I have not seen an admission of the crime committed, not a word of remorse, regret, or apology.
- Pastor William Tabor's wife murdered in the parsonage.
- Teacher Al Just's wife stabbed to death in her bed.
- District President Ed Werner sent to state prison for molesting young girls in his congregation, sent there by the girls' mothers who were previously molested and said "No more!"
