R.L. Hymers' History of Violence

This includes: ransacking the surface of a church elder's desk with the swipe of an arm; throwing chairs; slapping female parishioners; knocking over a rack that held religious booklets, sending hundreds of tiny Chick tracts fluttering onto the floor; stalking behavior ("staking out" the homes of people who left his church); breaking pulpits; striking male parishioners; shattering the glass in a framed document during a sermon, so the shards of glass landed in the first few rows of the assembly; abusive language; spitting water from the pulpit.

Good work, Bob.

2 In a series of cults run by Robert Leslie Hymers (Bob Hymers)--all run as "Bible-believing" churches: Maranatha Chapel, Open Door Community Churches, Fundamentalist Army, Baptist Tabernacle in Los Angeles. All were/are based in L.A. I was in it for nearly two years when I was a teenager.

3 How can we take anything you say seriously when you make statements that Rlhymers.com is s better site than rlhymersjr.com? Also, have you ever thought about moving on with your life. Charles Stanley made a comment that bitterness is a poison you prepare for someone else and end up drinking yourself.

4 Hi, Bob. Excuse me: Dale. My main point about Hymers' website is that is was ugly. It was and is ugly. I was doing a great job moving on with my life until Hymers sent me an anonymous note that vaguely threatened me with a lawsuit for what I've written about him here. The thing to remember is that threatening bloggers with defamation suits generally backfires. It's a bad strategy. Got it, Bobbie Sue?

5 And, of course, I'm perfectly willing to remove my posts about Robert L. Hymers if he apologizes to me and to all those whose lives were affected by taking on leadership roles in his "church." I know he has the home address of one former elder, so he can start there if he's interested in getting on with his life. In the meantime, all one can do is warn people away.

6 Content aside. How is rlhymers.com a better site than rlhymersjr.com? Any college professor would give rlhymers.com an F for lack of effort. Not only do you hold a grudge for years and years, but you are very paranoid also. How sad!!

7 One last note. I am not R.L.Hymers nor am I affiliated with him or his church. I just want to see you malcontents get on with your life and not make statements that a site built in 2 minutes in notepad is better than a fully functional site. Dale(not Bob)

8 You are Bob or Chris, or a sockpuppet for one of them. Now run along; isn't there someone you need to threaten with a defamation lawsuit?
