Banned For Life!

By | January 14, 2015

Here we are, midway through January of 2015.  For varied reasons my pen has fallen silent for the last few months, but I am now amply motivated to write of some items which have caught my attention.

Along with my silence in the blog world I have also not been active on Twitter.  Today while looking into a few things I clicked onto Dr. Humility’s page and found this:

2015-01-14 Banned from Mahaneys Twitter account

I don’t know what I did to earn this lifetime ban from the Ceej’s page, but I embrace it as a badge of honor.  I choose to think of it as CJ’s way of “serving me” with the opportunity to grow in humility!  I guess I must be a source of aggravation to the poor man.

Well, one doesn’t have to be too bright to employ work-arounds.  In a matter of minutes I was once again able to view the rich material emanating from the saintly man.  It appears nothing much has changed since my last visit.  You have your usual dose of Spurgeon quotes:

Mixed in are the occasional quotes from the Gospel Glitterati.  Ceej has always been able to use flattery to get what he wants,  but now days it is not working so well.  Never one to easily walk away from the spotlight, Ceej desperately attempts to stay in the good graces of the power brokers riding the celebrity circuit by regurgitating a few of their tweets:

Then of course we have the obligatory tweets pumping the entrepreneurial efforts of the Mahaney clan.  Wife Carloyn slaps some paint on old barn boards, scrawls some sappy saying on it and then peddles it to one of her dwindling admirers for a hefty profit:

Meanwhile son Chad is attempting to make a name for himself in sports journalism.  Ceej is all to willing to lend his expertise, frequently stealing the show.  I don’t think ESPN has to worry about their ratings:

So that’s about it, nothing much to see.  C.J. Mahaney doing his best to act as if nothing has happened to his fiefdom over the past three years.  You may wish to check back every once in awhile, just in case Mahaney decides to share his side of the sexual abuse scandal which rocked his world.  The lawsuit was dismissed almost seven months ago.  You can speak freely Ceej – unless perhaps you are worried about incriminating yourself.

“I don’t know what I did to earn this lifetime ban from the Ceej’s page, but I embrace it as a badge of honor.”

They probably recognized your name because they keep track of those of us who monitor them, Todd. 😉 I took down my Linked Profile when LinkedIn kept asking me if I wanted to “friend” Joshua Harris and Chip Grange (long-time CLC lawyer and member whom SGM asked to help them determine whether it was okay to black-mail a business associate over the alleged sexual misconduct of his minor child).

Since I didn’t t have anyone in my Linkedin profile remotely related to CLC/SGM, I’m guessing the interest in my page was on Harris’ and Granges’ side.


Ironically, Mahaney doesn’t seem to think the phrase, “I am the worst sinner I know,” applies to any of his actions. To my knowledge, he has called every accusation against him slander and continues to blame Joshua Harris for SGM’s demise.

I personally doubt that Mahaney has ever read the lawsuit complaint. I’m certain he doesn’t understand it because when meeting with someone I know he asked, “what is a subpoena?”

At any rate, he’s the biggest chicken I know. This guy will not face anyone – he just bans them from Twitter and writes an unsigned message on his Church’s site, which he will probably later claim was posted without his express permission when he has to testify under oath.

As for the Mahaney women, at least they’re not trying to sell the pictures of toilets and laundry baskets that 3rd-daughter Janelle used to take. That’s a relief. ;-).

Lucky you…no more insistent bragging that he’s the worst sinner he knows. He’s actually the worst pastor I know….

No no, Todd. You are not “banned”. You are “shunned” as a heretic. Big difference. (wink)
