Today is one of those days.
A couple of days ago Bob Coy posted a new profile picture of himself on Facebook.
The comments that were posted under the picture were all extolling the greatness of Bob Coy and expressing the posters adoration of him.
“Pastor Bob you know we love adore and support you always !!! So please let us know where you’ll be pastoring !”
“You are the best pastor on the history of the universe!😃And not matter what you still!”
“You look so adorable as always👍🏻🤗😇“
“We miss you so much you have no idea❤️❤️🙏🙏👋🏻👋🏻god bless you❤️”
There were more, but a man can only vomit so many times…
What in the name of all that’s holy is wrong with you people?
Let me review what is publicly known about Bob Coy.
He was a serial adulterer.
He had a “problem” with pornography.
From the latest story…
“The call came from California. A woman told Coral Springs Police she had recently learned something terrible: A South Florida man had molested her daughter for years. It began when the girl was just 4 years old.
An officer noted the information and called the victim, who was then a teenager. She confirmed the story in stomach-churning detail.
By the end of that harrowing call on August 20, 2015, police knew the accused predator was no ordinary suspect. His name was Bob Coy, and until the previous year, he’d been the most famous Evangelical pastor in Florida.”
I lived with that story for months before it saw the light of day.
While I worked on that story, I found other stories …every time I tried to follow Bob Coy’s trail I stumbled upon another piece of another broken life.
You can’t research these stories and write these stories without being traumatized to a degree yourself.
I can handle writing about most of the bad guys we’ve chronicled…this was a different story altogether.
I wrote it because the church needed to know the truth and in knowing the truth, act on it.
I assumed that the truth would set people free.
If he decides to make a comeback more information will be disclosed, more lives shattered.
Collateral damage because “he’s such a good teacher”…
God help us all…
