The three protestors who were positioned outside say that a man, who told them he was the assistant pastor of Calvary Bible Church to talk to them.
They claim that he later came back asking their names, asking to take their pictures, and trying to write down their license plates.
Then he told them the churches lawyer was going to be called. The protestors were quaking in the boots, (dripping sarcasm) because they were on public property, and peaceful demonstrations are legal according to the United States Constitution.
Well, well, well…. this afternoon the local news posted a video on its website, in which the pastor was interviewed. Turns out, the man who said he was the assistant pastor, was instead the Senior Pastor Keith Hamblen.
According to two protestors:
Protester One wrote:“The pastor told us protesters he was the assistant pastor. He asked what we know about Hephzibah House and the survivor of the place, Trina, spoke up. The pastor did deny as false what she experienced and what other women who are coming out of late say they also experienced. The man was intent in finding our car to write down the license number and was angry that we were there. His church funds the abuse that goes on in Ron Williams’s Hephzibah House. Of course we are going to stand up against the abuse, and for the children who are vulnerable. The problem is that people think we are talking about semantics. It is NOT semantics. This is not just little swats on a behind. This is serious abuse. Mental, physical, and emotional. With scars that last a lifetime. It is WRONG. The official HH website can say one thing, but the girls coming out of that place tell a very different story.”
Protester Two wrote:
“Yep, that’s the assistant pastor at least that is how he identified himself but would not offer his name when asked for it.”
Pastor Hamblen told the reporter who wanted to interview Ron Williams had left an hour before, but did he leave or was that one more lie?
Ron Williams talks a lot to his supporters about how he speaks to these woman about their allegations, yet he doesn’t. He runs like a roach when the lights come on.
What a testimony. Telling bold faced lies, even when doing so isn’t necessary. As we on the editorial board of this blog see it, that shows a lot about Pastor Hamblen’s lack of character. Wonder how quickly students who attend the Lima Christian Academy would be punished for telling such a bold faced lie?
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do….and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. John 8:44
