    Never really liked this guy. But after watching this I think I actually feel sorry for him. I thought the Jw's were bad. They banned this guy from their state!!!

    His church could have really taken this opportunity to make what happened to him a positive thing. What a bunch of hypocrites I think it was because of him being gay, which he STILL won't really come out and say it.

    Does anyone here happen to belong to this cult, I mean church? What was it like when this was going on?

    Listen to part 2, minute 13.58.

    Man if that that doesn't remind you of what it's like being a JW, I don't know what will.

    This cult, church is way worse on the shunning issue.

    I saw this on tv. I kind of felt bad for him and his family. He's a huckster, though.

    Yeah minimus, I agree.

    "The secular people hate him cause he preaches against homosexuality. The Christians hate him cause he is one. It just shows how much religion can influence someone's way of thinking.

    I actually feel a bit sorry for him. He and his family are just more victims of scripture. But he still doesn't get it."

    You reap what you sow, and it is only you who chooses the field.

    T minus 8,598 days and counting, but no more posts allowed for me today.

    Seems like a nice enough guy, but he was the ultimate religious hypocrite. Hate that his wife & kids have to move around and live like that. He should have considered more the consequences of his desires & actions.

    I saw this on TV too. I did feel bad for him too, but did notice that like M said, he tended to go toward jobs that I would call swarmy.

    Still, what they did to him was uncalled for.

    Lion Cask I agree that you reap what you sow. And I also agree with the Dawkins documentary. But that's not what I was reffering to when I posted this.

    I was referring to the Hypocrisy and the extream shunning that his church showed. I also find it fascinating his own denial on his homosexuality.

    You ain't kidding!!!! These guys make the WTS look like mother Teresa next to them.

    I can't see what the videos are here at work but I remember when this was in the news and I did see part of the HBO documentary of the same name if I remember correctly. Mabye that's what these videos are?

    Maybe I'm a heartless bastard, but I don't feel sorry for him. He's a charlatan and a fraud. And his fraud church was embarrassed by him and kicked him out. Now he's working on starting a new church. Looking for more sheep to shear...
