See for Yourself: My 2016 Confidential Settlement Proposal to Dysfunctional Bob Malm
With Grace Episcopal Church set to hold its annual parish meeting Sunday the 27th, here’s a potentially useful inflection point. Specifically, in January 2016, through my attorney, I offered to settle the matter in exchange for nothing more than Bob Malm’s written agreement to act like a priest. That’s right — simply stop disparaging me and stop intefering in my participation in the church. Additionally, we asked that the matter be treated as confidential.
Through Sugarland Chiow, Bob rejected my offer, including our request for confidentiality. (I wasn’t aware clergy could pick and choose. Beware.)
As a result, I launched my social media campaign, which continues to this day, and will do so indefinitely. This has proven effective, although I may soon augment it with additional litigation.
Now that people understand what really makes Bob and the church tick and are backing away Bob, being the manipulative little weasel he is, is playing his usual games, taking words out of context, claiming he’s been threatened, and asking the Alexandria police if there is any way they can take away my First Amendment rights. Having been repeatedly told that there isn’t, Bob’s fallback has been to argue “abuse of First Amendment rights,” in his emails to the diocese. And, of course, his old fallback, which is to conduct smear campaigns behind the scenes.
In all of this, of course, Bob conveniently overlooks the fact that that is the very reason for the First Amendment—to engender accountability, including for dirtbags like Bob Malm.
