Jack Hyles Daughter Exposes Daddy’s Cult

Jack HylesAs we’ve written before, we’re hardly fans of evangelist David Cloud, but we won’t deny that we seem to share much the same view of Jack Hyles and his legacy of perversion.

Dave-O’s latest entry on the Hyles cult quotes liberally from, he says, “Linda Murphrey’s testimony at the TEDxOjaiChange event in Ojai, California, April 5, 2012.” Linda Murphrey, he says, is “the daughter of the late Jack Hyles” (obviously not the daughter dumb enough to save her first kiss for that scoundrel Jack Schaap), and who, Dave opines, “appears from this testimony [to have] (more…)

Jack Schaap Polishes His Shaft

Jack SchaapYou’re going to want to save this video, because 1) First Baptist Hammond will almost undoubtedly get it taken down, and 2) you’re going to have to watch it two or three times to convince yourself you’re actually seeing what you’re seeing, and hearing what you’re hearing. We’re still agape — and not in the “Christian” sense of the word.

By the way, this, er, sermon was for a 2010 youth conference: (more…)

The Hypocrisy Files: Righteous Baptists at FundamentalForums.com OK With “Homofaggots” Slur

Really, folks, we would have contacted the webmaster(s) at FundamentalForums.com to ask: “Do you approve of the use of the slur ‘homofaggots’ in the title of one of your users’ posts?” but there is no contact information anywhere on the site. So, since many of FF’s regular forum posters visit ConBab (and we know you do, sweeties!), we figured if we mentioned this here (and on Twitter), word would get back to the FF webmaster(s). (more…)

A lot, apparently. Fundy preacher David Cloud just released another of his e-books, The 2 Jacks: Jack Hyles & Jack Schaap, which you can download for free. (more…)

Jesse Ruhl Gets Lawyer, Has Warrant Recalled (Translation: No Frog March, Sorry!)

Jesse RuhlFirst, catch up with the story of Jesse Ruhl, former youth pastor of his daddy’s anti-gay, IFB Pleasant Valley Baptist Church in Chico, California, who missed his January 18th arraignment, at which he was supposed to answer to charges of a “relationship” with a 16-year-old girl.

Now… The February 28 warrant for Jesse’s arrest has just been recalled.

Jesse Daniel Ruhl , former youth pastor of of Pleasant Valley Baptist Church (yet another Independent Fundamental Baptist [IFB] church), Chico, California, “is being sought after he missed a Jan. 18 arraignment hearing in Butte County Superior Court for an alleged relationship with a 16-year-old girl that was first reported in February 2011.” (more…)

United StatesArraigned: Charles Michael Abdelahad, pastor for 20 years (until December, 2010), St. George Antiochan Orthodox Cathedral, Worcester, Massachusetts, on one count of rape, four counts of assault and battery, and five counts of assault and battery with a weapon, allegedly committed against a woman. Court records recount allegations of Abdelahad beating the woman, biting her all over her body, and hitting her with a “religious icon,” among other forms of assault, all of which, in addition to the rape, is alleged to have occurred at the church.
