Who Is the Creepy Guy Continuing to Stalk Me on Social Media?

The Tycho Supernova: Death of a Star

“Never laugh at live dragons…” JRR Tolkien


 

A number of people on Twitter have been concerned about a person who appears to be obsessed with utilizing Scripture to make derogatory comments about me. This person, who is most likely a man, has two accounts and maybe even three.

Here is a link to who said that

Note that he is following two people and has only two followers since 9/19. Note that those two people follow me as well and also follow one another.

Here is a typical tweet.


Here is a link to Victim Princess.

Here is a typical tweet.

It appears that Victim Princess goes after victims written about at TWW. Now look at this link in his about me box:

wartburgwhiners.blogspot.com

This is a website start by a man who goes by Seneca Griggs whose real name is Jimmy Brown. He has been thrown off more blogs than just about anyone I know. He does not appear to like victims, sometimes claiming that they are to blame when they are molested. He has upset so many people here that he was told to go away and return when he wanted to play nice. Rumor has it that he is some sort of counselor but I have a hard time believing it.

His website gets no traffic. Consider visiting without commenting because it will only encourage him. However, I am not convinced this Twitter account belongs to Jimmy.


Here is a link to Raquel Jones

Here is a typical tweet

So what’s going on with Twitter?

I recognized the writing style of some of the tweets. I believe that this is a male who has been stalking me for a few years. I recognize his writing style. I have muted all of these accounts so I don’t have to see this nonsense. However, these accounts tag some of those who follow me who then try to tweet sense into this person with no results, just further insults. And yes, I believe it is one person or maybe two if Jimmy has decided to team up with the ringleader.

Yesterday, some folks became up set and have reported one of two of these accounts to Twitter, asking that that they be blocked. Since most of them do not understand the history I have with this person, I promised I would do an historical review of what has been going on.

Regular readers suffered through this a couple of years ago.You may want to take a break and keep following The Crown on Netflix. Current events lead me to believe that this series could be with us for quite awhile.

Tom Chantry, Iain Campbell, Frank Turk and a few nasty sorts.

The events surrounding Tom Chantry and Iain Campbell showed up around the same time.

Iain Campbell

This man was well known Reformed theologian and was  revered in a number of those circles. He lived on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland where he was a pastor. He wrote a number of theological books and was invited to speak all over the world. He refused to leave his home. He committed suicide when it was discovered that he had had an incredible number of affairs with the women on the Isle.

I became incensed when I saw that women in the church and on the Isle were blaming his lovely wife for his antics. So, I wrote a post. Suddenly, I received some insider information, including emails that he sent to his women. This caused a ruckus because the church leaders appeared to be planning on covering up this nastiness. My posts on the matter prevented that from happening. However, I was aware that some leaders were not happy with me. Here is one of my posts.

Blindsided: The True Story of the Circumstances Surrounding the Death of Iain Campbell

PS:I will never tell anyone who gave me the information. This has caused some gnashing of teeth.

Tom Chantry

As most of us know, Chantry will be spending many years as a guest of the State of Arizona, having been convicted of a number of instances of abuse against children. These were felony conviction. I began to follow Tom Chantry when I read some media accounts of his arrest. I followed this accounts until Todd Wilhelm moved tom to Arizona from Dubai and took over following this story.

I was accused by some Reformed folks of prejudging the outcome of Chantry’ situation. In fact, I was told I had formed a holy mob to go after Chantry! All I said was I believed the victims. Here is a post that I wrote about this.

Tom Chantry, Well Known Reformed Pastor, Indicted on Charges of Child Sexual Molestation While Dee Is Accused of Lots of Things

Frank Turk/Pyromaniacs

Turk used to blog with Phil Johnson (John MacArthur’s right hand man) at Pyromaniacs. Frank decided to accuse me, along with a couple of other folks of slander. However, he did it in a most unusual way. He decided to accuse me of necrophilia on Twitter. (Yes, you read that right.) He was trying to prove a point. He claimed that I was guilty of slander by believing the victims of Ton Chantry. I explained how he didn’t seem to understand the definition of slander.  So he thought he was being cute when he accused me and others of necrophilia.

I held my breath and said that he was about to become an example of true slander which might result in a civil settlement. I asked him if John MacArthur knew he was saying stuff like this. Within short order, Frank Turk left social media for good.  Here is a link to the story.

Frank Turk Retires His Blog and Demonstrates That He Hardly Knew Us

The infamous letter sent to Dee’s church, community groups, my husband’s employer at Duke, and a host of other entities.

Here is the post with a copy of the letter and my response. To this day, I am grateful for my pastors and the Lutheran church for their support.

If you read this letter, you will see that two names come up: Iain Campbell and Tom Chantry. I believe that the writer’s real concern was Chantry. You can also see that this person’ writing style is not particularly compelling: mostly anger and poor pagination.

How a Letter Meant to Hurt Dee in Her Church and Community Gave Her a Precious Gift Instead

TWW began to receive comments that were angry and somewhat threatening.

These comments were usually caught by our spam filter and held. However, the style of writing was remarkably like the letter:poorly written and threatening. These comments have been saved to a file. We cannot track him down because he uses a proxy server.

We have a staggering number of these. Do you see a similarity to those on Twitter? I sure do.

I believe that he is someone related to one of the people mentioned in this post.

Since he has been effectively blocked, I believe he has come to Twitter to see if he can cause some trouble.

That is why I have muted these accounts. I will continue to do so since there seems to be some sort of obsession with attempting to get through to me.

So thankful for the advent of spam filters and mute capabilities.

  1. Dee, if you ever get something from this person/these people that would be legally actionable, I would enthusiastically contribute, via GoFundMe (I recall the successful campaign of the TED people) or whatever you prefer, to help you go after him/them to the fullest extent of the law.

  2. The OP just further demonstrates the NT passages that warns of wolves in sheep’s clothing.. While a number of commenters on TWW express dispare because of all of the “bad actors” that are discussed, it really does not upset me; in fact I am encouraged that people are willing to blow the whistle and cry foul!

    If anything, the whole of the Bible is mostly about “bad actors”, and the consequences, many acting in position of religious authority…
    So Dee getting this kind of do-do just demonstrates TWW is going good work! But, I am sure it takes a toll on her….

  3. So sorry that this has to happen, but Jesus did not promise any of us a rose garden. Reminds me of a time about 11 years ago when I was playing an online game and someone private messaged me with “You want to die?” Creepiest thing I had come across and out of the blue too. I do believe that, unfortunately, things worse then harassment will eventually happen to someone. The kind of people that are covered here, I have no doubt, do have one of the Dark Triad Personality Disorders. MacDonald wanted to kill two people. Some of these and their Mach. coherts in religious crime are actually very dangerous people. So if you want to blog, count the cost and do not underestimate the enemy, both the spiritual one and those human beings that are his pawns on the ground.

    For that reason I have sometimes prayed that God would protect the watchbloggers from very real physical harm. We should not get cocky and underestimate these people. I played a role in the GFA affair that likely cost KP Yohannan 100’s of millions of donation dollars. This is why I have prayed for those including myself, Prof. Throckmorton and others who played a role in that. There is motive out there and many Indians think that KP is violent. Some Indians wrote the Prof. and warned him that his life could be at risk. So never take this stuff lightly, please.

  4. Dee,
    Sorry to hear of the despicable behavior pointed at you and others. There are some really strange folks out there that can utilize technology to say things they would be too afraid to say face to face. Just another form of cowardness and extremely bizarre behavior. Eventually, they will be called out on it. Keep up the good work.

  5. “So thankful for the advent of spam filters and mute capabilities.”

    Indeed! I have noticed these tweets. Often the best thing to do is what you have done- ignore them. I cannot imagine spending my time repeatedly harassing people online like this. If they think their actions will stop people from reading what you write, they are mistaken. In fact, often people end up bringing *more* attention to articles/posts/tweets by doing this. So I often smile as I see this on the Facebook page for my website as I know some in their friends list will see what I wrote/shared who probably wouldn’t have otherwise. 🙂

  6. There’s a word that is used many times in the book of Proverbs, which is typically translated “mocker” or “scoffer”. AWWBA, it does not convey God’s admiration.

    I don’t think many of the anonymous pseudo-christian snipers of the interweb even pretend to themselves to believe in God. Quite likely they believe God does not see their casually quoting (out of context) verses about wrath and judgement.

  7. Jimmy/Seneca is still banging the drum for his inerrant version of evangelicalism over at Internet Monk, using his normal tactics of dropping provocative things into the comments & then being ‘shocked’ that they get a non/post-evangelical response. I really don’t know why he bothers being there, given it’s a post-evangelical blog.
    I finally (when will I learn?) gave up responding to anything he posts, because you never get a straight answer from him. I think my last comment to him *may* have mentioned to irony of him whinging on about iMonk criticising others, when he has an entire blog criticising you…

  8. There are a lot of creepy guys in the reformed fringe who supported Chantry, Campbell and Turk. They get creepier when their idols fall. But it’s not only the “old” reformers, the “new” reformers have more than their share of followers who max out on the creepy scale … they include folks trying to bring back MacDonald, Savage, Noble, Feltner, etc. (they already put Driscoll and Tullian back on the throne). Mark Driscoll once creeped out social media by distinguishing himself as “William Wallace II” and trolling cyberspace defending his potty-mouth preaching (he later repented of that – not his preaching, but his trolling).

    No weapon formed against you shall prosper, Dee.

Worse, they had male sacred prostitutes, polluting the country outrageously—all the stuff that God had gotten rid of when he brought Israel into the land.” 1 Kings 14.22-23. The Message Bible

    Apparently the aberration of sex-and-religion is a thing, and not new.

    The “church” has always drawn a segment of folks who want to live as much in the world as they can and still appear Christian. Incorporating sex into religion is a crowd-pleaser evidently. The more dirty-mouth Driscoll was, the bigger his following … such preaching made the Driscollites feel better about themselves.

    Never mind the Spiritual angle, the Physical guys on the ground can do enough damage on their own. And you’re more likely to get allies and support outside the church if you appeal to common decency and opposing corruption instead of going Biblical.

  16. Headless Unicorn Guy: mixing the Sacred and the Erotic

    Is this even possible?

    Matt.6.24 “No one can serve two masters: Either he will hate the one & love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.”

    1 John 2.15 “Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”

    There must be a tipping point somewhere in the continuum. Red flag. Wonder what it is. When/how did the leadership indicate they were off the rails? Headed the opposite of what they were “saying”?

  17. Ava Aaronson: When/how did the leadership indicate they were off the rails? Headed the opposite of what they were “saying”?

    IMO, such leaders were never on the rails. They have been deceivers from the very beginning. They know the right words to say, but they originate in their intellect not the Holy Spirit. They went into the ministry, rather than being called into it. American seminaries are preparing another batch just like them as I write this.

    Sure it is, and to a certain degree of pragmatism, if you (generic you) can jettison Greek dualism when reading Scripture.

    To use a loose metaphor, some use unleaded regular and some prefer diesel, even then, individual mileage is bound to vary.

    I’ll chime in as another long-time silent reader who immensely appreciates the work you do, Dee. If you haven’t already, you can opt out of all the online data collection sites like whitepages, spokeo, beenverified, and mylife to keep your address and personal information out of the hands of creeps like this.

  22. Ava Aaronson: When/how did the leadership indicate they were off the rails? Headed the opposite of what they were “saying”?

    Many of us come from churches where a leader-sponsored pastor seeking a position flat out lied about their beliefs during the church search process and then “reformed” the church after becoming pastor. They also are big on lying to potential members to get them to sign a covenant, and then changing the rules once they believe you signed a contract to obey them.

    It took several years of reading here, but it’s become clear they have several playbooks about how to force a church takeover, and their methodology includes flagrant lying. Dee’s recorded a bunch of people’s experiences with these takeovers and also the other lies they tell.

    Some of them are just batty, like John Piper. I think he lost his marbles a long time ago. And some of them are true believers, but much of what they believe was told to them by leaders that are not honest.

    As for the troll, honestly, they just seem pitiful and in need of mental help to me. Like many trolls. One of the worst things about evangelicals is their fear of seeking help for their mental health and declaring that anyone that does is going against God. They’d go to the doctor for a broken leg, but not for a broken mind.

  23. ishy: their methodology includes flagrant lying.

    It’s my understanding that within Reformed practical theology (perhaps that’s too broad and this is more true of the Westminster system than of the entirety of the broader Reformed movement, which is of course vastly larger than neo-calvinism), deception of enemies in war-time is not a violation of the Ninth Commandment.

    I can imagine that such deceptions do not trouble the conscience of such people. They tell themselves that they are waging war for the sake of God, with weapons of righteousness in left hand and right.

    It also leads me to the thought that one could never be entirely confident that
    such a person did not regard oneself to be an enemy and that one was not the subject of ongoing deception. Even if he swore that he regarded you to be friend, that might just be another in-his-eyes-righteous deception.

    I think one ought to flee from such people.

    I don’t know much about the history of that, but the hierarchy definitely comes into play a lot. People above you are to be obeyed absolutely, and people below you do not have to be told the truth, even if they are covenanted. If the “minions” rebel, even when they find out that there was dishonesty, they are ex-communicated and shunned.

    It is a very military-like structure, come to think of it. I can’t see it supported anywhere in the NT, though.

  26. Friend: Except that military folks are never supposed to obey an unlawful order… I doubt that standard holds in certain churches.

    If they are really thinking in “war time”, then they are drafting people.

    Though I think their belief in forcing people to membership has more to do with power and money than any theological belief. Because I think the desire for power and money drives the creation of their theological belief. And it’s exactly opposite of what God says should drive us.

    Yes, the “Quiet” part of the Founders’ Quiet Revolution implies deception, which is not exactly a fruit of the Holy Spirit. Problem is the “New” Calvinists picked up on this tactic to accomplish what the ole boys couldn’t … Calvinization of the largest non-Calvinist Protestant denomination in America. And to think their Mamas told them not to lie! I suppose somehow the young reformers justify stealth and deception for the good of their movement … but not good for the Kingdom of God.
