"Great. However, you indicate that he's lost his license to teach and his whatever to do whatever in the areas you purport to have concern over. Your site really does nothing the revocation of his certifications by the state hasn't already done. You know, except to screw with him. If that's your bag, fine. Just don't bitch when we're answering the next post "got my license revoked and now some internet stalker won't leave me alone" when it comes along."
People can look up the fact that his license to teach was revoked in California..other than that it is difficult to know what this guy has been up to.
The state doesn't regulate the kind of license he is currently attempting to use...It is strictly a "pastoral counseling license".. There isn't a way to look it up unless you know the organization he is currently under. Those organizations let him go regularly because of his behavior...without anyone checking him out on a regular basis and somone (me) posting it, then no one would be the wiser. There isn't anything anyone can do because the state doesn't consider the guy a real therapist. He is accountable to no one.
"I get the sinking feeling that you're a professional victim. I digress."
I guess the other twenty plus people (not including those in my church) I spoke with are also "proffesional victims". Everyone of them checks the site regularly because they fear that his behavior will escalate and someone could be seriously injured (he tells people they don't need their meds). They all chip in by telling other members and myself what he is up to.
By the way, I don't know if you have ever heard of something called a server..but here is the deal..I can prove he sent those e-mails if necessary.
By the way, as a "proffesinal victim" I also have to state that I have been at the same congregation for 12+ years and never had problem one with any of the people there. This is the only situation I have come into where I have felt the need to do something.
I considered it a way to keep other people from having their heads messed with since the state won't do anything. There are people I care about that got hurt with his quack counseling....i.e. him telling an underage girl I know that she was demon possesed and he tried to convince her that she is suicidal. But your right..since I started a blog about the guy I must really think I'm a victim all the time and in all situations. Kudos, maybe you should be a therapist since you are so good at diagnosing people.
"But you're perfectly willing to undergo the hassle of creating a website to lambaste this guy in a public forum where nothing can actually result instead of handling it in the one place in our system where a conclusion and final set of actions can be wrought. Groovy."
First of all, the blog was very easy to set up and only requires a minimal amout of time and effort. Second of all, what is the point of suing someone that can't pay you? I can post all of his other civil suits on my site and not have to pay for it. Two months ago someone else sued him...guess what? He claimed bankruptcy and they let it go. Why would people spend the money to take someone to court if they aren't going to get anything out of it? Also, suing him in civil court won't stop him...I was never looking for money. I want the guy to stop.
"Be sure to keep us up-to-date; I'm awash with anticipation."
Here is the update...you don't know my motives...maybe what you think of me has to do with what you think of yourself.
