Chantry has yet to post $250,000 secured bond and was still in jail as of 5/9. The decision to allow him to post bond was on 5/3. Money issues, perhaps? Read more here.

  1. Perhaps his family and friends want him to stay put in jail … suicide watch? The man and his ministry are obviously done.

    You’d be (sadly) shocked at how many supporters these guys have.

    The victims and their families usually have no supporters in the Christian community.

    Nothing shocks me anymore with these New Calvinists! Thieves band together, even in the ministry.

    In a Christian community, they do. It’s increasingly clear that much of the American church would not be considered Christian.

    “PERSECUTION!!!!!!! TITHE! TITHE! TITHE! TITHE! TITHE! OR GOD WILL PUNISH YOU!!!!!”

    Remember the testimony of Boz T: how in all his years as a prosecutor, he has NEVER seen Christians get behind a victim. ALWAYS “RALLY ROUND THE PEDO, BOYZ!”

    which is what is normally what the court asks)?

    Do we know the number of days he has been in jail and the number of days until his trial? If the length of time to his trial is relatively short compared to the length of time he has been in jail, it may not be worth spending $25,000 to secure bail.

  6. Yep we can attest to that!!! And a pastor who asks the judge to drop charges! Elders who confront victims when a lawsuit is in play, members who say your doing satans work for defending your kid! It doesn’t suprise me what Boz’s experience has been as a prosecutor Headless Unicorn Guy wrote:

  7. I hope that supervision by another adult when in contact with his children is an adult other than Chantry’s wife. For obvious reasons if one is knowledgeable about Complementarianism.

    Dunno. Might take a little more money than that to get someone to pick him up along I-8 and take him south of the border. I can’t help but wonder ……

    Tad Cummins, who took the teenager from TN to CA, had plans to take the girl to Mexico. BTW, Cummins is lodged in a Henderson, KY jail and facing federal as well as TN state charges.

    Yes, I was reminded of that fiasco at Doug Wilson’s church in Moscow, Idaho, where he and the elders thought it would be a great idea to play matchmaker between a desperate single woman in their church and a convicted pedophile, marry the two, and now the couple’s baby boy is at risk by his father who is sexually attracted to his own son.

    The doormat wife was supposed to chaperone her husband the criminal. Sigh.

    And how many other children are in danger, not just the ones that will be born of this union?

  10. @ Velour:
    I was thinking of the Sitler debacle when I made that comment. How in the world can wives in Comp/Patriarchal marriages have supervision over their husbands? They would be breaking the #1 prescription of that belief system.

    Great minds think alike, Darlene.

    Yes, Steven Sitler, the convicted pedophile.

    Unbelievers have more sense than these patriarchial men. Why didn’t they tell Katie to get a real college education (oh I forgot, they don’t believe in that). Clean the refrigerator on Friday nights instead of going out on a date. I mean…anything sane…rather than dating and marrying a pedophile (the “elders’ brilliant idea”).

  12. The conditions are pretty onerous, beyond the bond.

    Not only can Chantry not be within 100 feet of any child, he has to be supervised when he is with his own children. I am not sure what “supervised” means in terms of his conditions for release. I remember with Steven Sitler, those who would be his supervisors had to go through training. Can it just be any old adult or does that person have to be cleared with (for example) Yavapai County pre-trial services?

    Also, if Chantry gets out, he’s got to check back in with Yavapai County pre-trial services once a week. It would be possible to go back to Wisconsin, but one day a week he’d have to fly into Phoenix, drive the 90 miles to Prescott, do his check-in, and then leave, but it gets expensive and tiresome after a while.

    He may have decided to stay in jail, but then again, maybe the moneybags who came up with the original cash bail is balking at paying a bail bondsman 10 or 20 percent for the $250K bail. Who knows? Just speculating here.

    I was thinking along the same lines, MAX;
    except I am beginning to think that churches ‘friendly’ to certain political interests may no longer reflect the America we all grew up in. God have mercy! What is going on????

    Hi just a FYI Billy posted a comment for all of you under the prayer requests

    Thanks for the heads up, Shauna.

    I just copied Billy’s post and sent it via Facebook messenger to the Anonymous donor in Michigan.

    And just tell Billy that if he posts anything online…please don’t use our real names!

    Hugs to you both,

    We are experiencing in America – both in and out of the church – predictable results when the people of God do not pray as they ought. America is a mess because the church is a mess. The church has spent far too much time organizing, when it should have been agonizing. Prayer meetings have been canceled for lack of interest. Jesus warns the church of our day “Repent or else.”

    Anyone who didn’t leave their husband after they abused (or thought about abusing) their child can’t be trusted to supervise at all.

    When church members and ministry buds rally around a pastor who is an alleged abuser, additional victims do not find a safe environment to come forward.
