Eric Pazdziora offered kind words of encouragement to those whom T4G has stomped on. If you have a Twitter account, look Eric up.  He is a great musician and has a nice hymn from his album that accompanies this tweet.

Update at 0730 Dubai Time, April 14

Bob Allen of Baptist News Global, has written a good account of the Mahany scandal at T4G. He said in part:

“One of the protestors, Pam Palmer of Hagerstown, Md., told local media that after her 3-year-old daughter was abused by a teenage boy who was eventually convicted, a pastor serving under Mahaney told her family not to call the police.
In introducing Mahaney at the conference, Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, praised his friend as a model of Christian endurance.”

Mark Ammerman, pastor of Grace Evangelical Congregational Church in Lancaster, PA wrote the following statement.  It can be found at The Wartburg Watch here.

Todd Pruitt, a PCA pastor and member of the Mortification of Spin podcast has written three articles this week appealing for the removal of C.J. Mahaney from his speaking duties and also from the T4G organization.  Even though the numerous appeals from many have fallen on deaf ears, we thank Mr. Pruitt for his efforts. Links to his three posts are provided below.

One of our articles has very high search engine placement for the term “C.J. Mahaney.” It’s getting a boatload of hits so many people must be Googling “C.J. Mahaney” to see what all the controversy is about. Amen!

Update at 4:30 P.M. – A reader has written to us to say that the protest was a success. Specifically, she had many great conversations with people who had heard of the C.J. Mahaney controversy and were interested in learning more about it!

At least one protester had  the opportunity to speak with the press!

As Al Mohler mocks the abused, the world listens.

Unfortunately the organizers of T4G have ignored the pleas of concerned believers and have not canceled his appearance. I am watching C.J. Mahaney’s “sermon” at T4G on the livestream, and it is even more surreal than you could imagine. Al Mohler introduced him, with a commendation for his “endurance through trial”. Unbelievably, Mahaney is speaking on suffering and how it “takes time to recover from grief”. I can only wonder what the atmosphere in the room is like. How many attendees are feeling uncomfortable watching him speak?
