Conservative megachurch founder Bob Coy accused of molesting 4-year-old

Published

on

A former Las Vegas strip club manager who went on to found one of the largest megachurches in Florida, has been accused of molesting a Florida girl for years — beginning when she was 4-years-old.

Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale founder, Pastor Bob Coy, forced the victim to perform oral sex, would “finger and fondle” her genitals, and would “dirty talk” to the child, the Miami New Times reported the victim told police.

“The sexual assault claims, which have never before been divulged, raise new questions about the pastor, his church, and the police who handled the case. Documents show that Coral Springs cops sat on the accusations for months before dropping the inquiry without even interviewing Coy,” the New Times reported. “His attorneys, meanwhile, persuaded a judge with deep Republican ties to seal the ex-pastor’s divorce file to protect Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale from scrutiny.”

In 2014, Pastor Bob resigned his position after “confessing to a moral failing” in his life, rumored to involve multiple affairs and addiction to pornography.

“If you’re foolish enough to go through with this story… it would hurt a lot of people,” Coy said at the Funky Biscuit nightclub in Boca Raton, which he now helps manage.

During his time at the megachurch, Pastor Bob campaigned in South Florida to reelect President George W. Bush.

The New Times explained, “Coy used his relaxed persona to sell a deeply conservative brand of Christianity. He ran gay-conversion groups and preached that all nonbelievers would go to Hell.”

Calvary’s network of 1,800 churches have allegedly had multiple pastors, staff and volunteers charged with abusing children.

“There could be other victims out there,” suggested Michael Newnham, an Oregon pastor who runs a blog critical of Calvary Chapel. “We need answers.”

“He was the rock star and cash cow of the church,” church member Douglas Henery told the Miami Herald.

Alex Jones attacks Sandy Hook families’ lawyer as a ‘little white Jewboy’ in latest unhinged outburst

Published

on

Alex Jones is dealing with ongoing legal battles with families of victims and survivors of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Jones is being accused of sending child pornography to the families and leading an ongoing attack on the families using his InfoWars network. However, his legal defense seems to hinge on attacking the plaintiffs' attorney, AboveTheLaw reported Thursday.

It was the child pornography that prompted Jones to lose his mind over attorney Chris Mattei. During the discovery phase of the trial, Mattei found the images and contacted the FBI, which he is required to do by law. But it sent Jones into an outright ragegasm in a video that was shown in court.

Trump ridiculed for babbling Oval Office talk about ‘manned drones’: We call those ‘planes’

Published

on

During a press availability in the Oval Office with Canadian Prime Minister, Donald Trump was naturally asked about Iran reportedly shooting down a U.S. drone in international airspace, which led to the president rambling in the way he does about what a drone is and does.

His explanation was not what one might call knowledgeable or smooth.

“I think probably Iran made a mistake,” the president replied when asked about the international incident. “I would imagine it was a general or somebody that made a mistake in shooting that drone down. Fortunately, that drone was unarmed. There was no man in it and there was no — it was just — it was over international waters, clearly over international waters, but we didn’t have a man or woman in the drone. We had nobody in the drone. It would have made a big difference, let me tell you. It would have made a big, big difference."
