Harvest Bible Chapel Lawsuit Goes Live

Some time ago, I referenced the exploding scandal at the Harvest Bible Chapel over abuse of power, misuse of funds, spiritual abuse, intimidation and more. Today, things reached a new level, as a website launched that provides information for those who may wish to join in the lawsuit against the church.

You may recall that the church tried suing bloggers for defamation, as part of an effort to shut down criticism. In other words, it tried pulling a Bob Malm.

Tenth Presbyterian in Philly Allegedly Pulls a Bob Malm, Claims Protester Has Threatened Them

In a move reminiscent of Grace Episcopal Church, Dysfunctional Bob Malm, and Sugarland Chiow, Tenth Presbyterian in Philadelphia allegedly has attempted to ban a protester in front of the church by claiming that he has threatened and harassed people. The protester, Phillip Snyder, asserts that he is protesting the coverup of sexual abuse by the church’s former music minister.

As part of its efforts, the church allegedly excommunicated Snyder, threatened to arrest him if he entered the property, and attempted to obtain an injunction ordering him to remain 1,000 feet from he church. (Guess folks there share Sugarland’s fixation with the magic 1,000 feet!)

The court decline to issue an injunction, and in response, Mr. Snyder has filed a lawsuit alleging that church officials defamed him.

In the meantime, I am in touch with Mr. Snyder and hope to talk with his attorney later this week.

Looking Ahead to 2019: More Protests and Possible Lawsuits

As we get ready to move into 2019, protests continue over Dysfunctional Bob Malm’s conduct, as well as that of Jeff “Sugarland” Chiow. Look for me and others at:

1) King and Seminary aka Dysfunction Junction aka Malm Square(d)
2) the monument at Braddock and Russell Road
3) the front of MOM’s
4) the intersection of Commonwealth and Mount Vernon avenues.
5) 395 during rush hour

Although we have not yet made a final go/no-go decision, I believe it likely that I and several other plaintiffs will file suit against the church, vestry, Bob Malm and family, and several individual parishioners in Federal district court in late January. Assuming we proceed, a second lawsuit is expected later in the spring.

Stay tuned for details.
