Louisiana College May Appoint Mack Ford Son in Law as President

We here at Chucklestravels have been following with interest the seeming imminent implosion of Louisiana College if  meaningful and massive changes are not taken in short order.

Louisiana College is a private Christian College.

According to THIS, Louisiana College received the second warning from its accreditation agency, Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).  Making Louisiana College in serious jeopardy of losing its accreditation status.

You may be wondering why The Editorial Board of Chucklestravels has been watching Louisiana College with such interest?

Tim Johnson, (Pictured left) is currently the Vice President for Institutional Development and New Projects at Louisiana College.

We found on Tim Johnson’s bio on Louisiana College website, Tim Johnson is married to Robbie (Ford) Johnson.

Tim Johnson is married to one of Mack and Thelma Ford’s daughters!

oh, but it get’s worse.

Much worse.

Years ago, a New Bethany prisoner recorded on a cassette tape her being sexually assaulted by Mack Ford, Tim’s father-in-law.

Tim Johnson removed the girl from the home, but of course, never took the girl to the police.  New Bethany was closed for a period of time after this.  Tim Johnson told Mack and Thelma Ford if New Bethany was ever reopened, he (Tim Johnson) “would call the law.”

New Bethany Home for Girls was reopened with a matter of months.  Tim Johnson never made good on that threat he made.  Girls went on to be raped and abused for another decade.

We here at Chucklestravels have documented more evidence of Timothy Johnson’s complicity with the crimes that took place at New Bethany.

Timothy Johnson was on the board of New Bethany!

We have been tipped off by credible sources that Louisiana College may be appointing the man who helped cover up the rapes of minors for decades by his father-in-law  may become the next President of Louisiana College as early as next week.

See Chucklestravels tag Unto the Least of These  for more information about the decades of horrific abuse at New Bethany that this Timothy Johnson chose to allow occur for another decade after he broke his promise to call the law if New Bethany Girls Home was reopened.

  • Mack Ford is far more prolific alleged child sex abuser than Jerry Sandusky.
    • Bienville Parish Sheriff Department what’s the deal?
    • Bienville Parish District Attorney WHY didn’t you prosecute?
    • Federal Bureau of  Investigation why didn’t you follow-up when it was reported that Mack Ford raped girls across state lines?nb-meme

  1. Students of Louisiana College, if you are being bullied, discriminated against or abused in any manner please contact the US dept of education. You have 180 days to file a complaint.

    email OCR.DC@ed.gov phone 202-453-6020

  2. No student on the campus of LC should have to endure what I’ve been reading about the last day or two. Every single one of you have the RIGHT to use your voice. The constitutional right!

    There are those who have come before you who know exactly what things are like for you, having lived under conditions so similar it could boggle the mind.

    In looking at what is going on at LC, and also keeping up with what’s going on at Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC as I type this, the two schools could be twin sisters.

    I wonder how much the student body at LC knows about how BJU alumnus and student have come together and found their voice. It can most certainly be done. It’s already begun. Those of you who are finding your voice are effecting change. Read about how it happened, and is still happening at BJU.

  3. Timothy Johnson and his wife Robbie (Ford) Johnson have stood behind Mack Ford for years. They took it upon themselves to remove the young girl who had recorded Ford assaulting her. Also after this girl was removed several other children were interviewed by Thelma Ford (Macks wife) and Nora Carter (dorm mother). He had been sexually abusing MANY of the children during that time (He had been sexually abusing children since the 70s) They promised the girls that Ford was gone and could no longer harm them.
    This was the time that Ford jumped out of the bushes, with a GUN, and threatened to kill everyone there, and also threatened to burn the place down. Here he was, the very man that had been assaulting many, running around like a crazed lunatic. What a horrific thing for any child to have to witness.
    Sure the children went home, but it wasnt long before many of the same children, as well as a whole new group of children came to the home and it was open and running again.
    Had Timothy and Robbie Johnson kept their word and called the authorities, we wouldnt have a whole seperate decade of survivors from the New Bethany home.

    I am wondering HOW Timothy Johnson even became employed at LC? In a recent conversation with an employee of the college he stated that he had never heard of New Bethany? 4 decades of abuse in every form, DHS closing down the Louisiana boys home for abuse, another New Bethany home opened in South Carolina that was also closed for abuse (that Timothy Johnson defended), lawsuists that would make the normal persons skin crawl, and countless survivors of New Bethany speaking out. Yet, he never heard of New Bethany? I find that very hard to believe.

    I hope the young men and ladies at LC are alright. I hope they know that there are thousands of us out here that are willing to help them, willing to stand beside them, willing to comfort them, and are willing to fight for them.

    And Timothy and Robbie (Ford) Johnson, if you are reading this, SHAME ON YOU! You could have saved thousands of children from the claws of Mack Ford and New Bethany. I am sure that God looks down on you and weeps.

  4. This CANNOT happen! How can someone who has helped commit rape on untold scores of girls by his simple complicity be rewarded in this fashion? I was one of the girls that he could have saved, and he didn’t. Please don’t let this happen!

  5. The man is, of course, guilty of not reporting a crime of abuse. By his lack of concern, more were abused for a decade on.
    Being a private Christian college, perhaps Louisiana College feels it is up to God to protect the welfare of its students. But I’ll tell you what, if a man will turn a blind eye to abuse of minors, how can he be trusted to uphold decency and justice for the people of Louisiana College?

  6. For decades the Survivors of New Bethany, have been called liars anytime they have tried to speak out bout the abuse they endured, while under the care of Mack and Thema Ford and thier NB Staff. Timothy Johnson was given information that supported these aligations,
    (a cassette tape made by one of the victims)
    instead of protecting the children, he chose to protect his father in law Mack Ford.
    Now Mr. Johnson is being considered for appointment of Louisiana College President.
    Please tell me if Mr. Johnson would cover up information showing his father in law to be a pedophile and child abuser, what else might he cover up?
    This whole thing makes me sick to my stomach.
    Stand Up Agaist Instituional Abuse, Stop the Mayham!!!

  7. Things sure have gone to hell at LC since I was a student back in the late 80′s. It was rated as one of the best private schools nationally at the time.

    I am thoroughly disgusted with this. Shame on all of the leaders who have put their quest for power over their supposed love for God and the safety for those most vulnerable kids in their care. I hope this gets some real coverage.

  8. Make that wide coverage. This is real too. Sorry about that.

    I notice the tags reference IFB and fundamentalist baptists. Louisiana is a Southern Baptist affiliated school.

  9. I was reading the LC president’s statement and this stood out… “even if we stand alone, we will stand for what is right.”

    For decades, many of us felt we stood alone. For decades, I thought I was the only SXAB victim of Mack Ford. That was a lonely place to live in the playground of my mind. I thought the SXAB had to be my fault because I thought no one else experienced the same and preachers, including my own father, deemed me dishonest.

    People who know me are aware that I can’t lie worth squat, so why bother? Mechille’s greatest fear was that Mack Ford would die before she could obtain justice for crimes perpetrated against her.

    Now, to realize that if Timothy Johnson or his wife, Roberta Ford, had kept Timothy’s word, Mechille would not have been returned to the arms of her rapist!
    Mechille would likely be sitting nearby doing the happy-dance had Timothy Johnson stayed true to his word. Johnson’s personal awareness of Mack’s proclivity for raping and molesting girls did not cause him to stir and Mechille’s blood is on Johnson’s and Ford’s hands!

    Timothy, “You are a direct cause for two children growing up without their mommy! Did your silence have a pay-off and was your inaction worth all the pain generated over the following decade?”

    So Mechille, this one’s for you baby girl! I will keep on sharing what you told me in confidence because I know we were going public but you passed away two days before our planned outing to media and the filing of a lawsuit against Mack W. Ford, and every minion who remained silent, knowing MF was molesting children’s bodies and minds at New Bethany.

    I’m glad that I do not stand alone, and that I know I was not alone, and that I never have to feel so horribly alone again. ;)

  11. It took 7 months to literally beat God out of me, and 27 years to be able to forgive those responsible.

    http://clarkword.com/blogs/?p=6

    Forgiveness doesn’t mean someone gets a free pass from the judicial system. When will they answer for their crimes?

    And for the naysayers out there that have called us liars over the years it’s funny Dee Rapier, former staff member and ex wife of director Larry Rapier, has even admitted to the abuse that went on herself in this article written by Kathryn Joyce on page 3. But don’t skip to that page, read all of the article.

    • Thank you for sharing this, Clark. It is very important to hear from mutiple first-hand accounts of what went on at New Bethany and elsewhere. I know men have a harder time opening up about what was done to them, but this shows you are every bit the victim as others were. I applaud your courage in telling your story.

      • No thanks needed. One needs to speak up while one can, some unfortunately can’t anymore. Guy, Angela, and Mechille can’t speak anymore. It’s up to us to speak for them.

        Silence can do just as much damage or more to someone else. I know this first hand from when I came home and kept silent. My mom would never had sent my brother had I told her the truth about L.D. Rapier and NB. I kept silent out of fear.

        Because of my silence he suffered even worse than I did at the hands of Olen King. Who by the way runs a home in North Carolina even though he is a convicted felon from the time he ran the NB boys home in Walterboro, S.C. He never should have been allowed children again.

        It’s time for some answers and some justice, it’s way over due.
