Campaigns Against Public Figures
talk radio hosts with nationally syndicated radio programs
generate a great deal of controversy. When they give their
conservative views on politics, religion, business, war, finances,
and law, they make a lot of enemies.
their enemies cannot answer their conservative arguments, they
attack the character and motives of the host. Instead of using
logic and facts, they call them names, ridicule them, and slander
them. If you doubt this, Google Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage,
Sean Hannity, Jerry Falwell, James Dobson, D. James Kennedy, etc.
and you will find them smeared with every kind of accusation.
Morey had a nationally syndicated conservative talk radio program
called “Bob Morey Live!” It aired from Coast to Coast, Monday
through Friday, during prime time, on both secular and religious
radio stations. With great humor and rapier sharp wit, he argued
his conservative views with liberal politicians, Muslim
terrorists, religious liberals, astrologers, reincarnationists,
Hindus, Buddhists, atheists, agnostics, witches, Mormons,
Catholics, Orthodox, etc. They could not refute what he argued any
more they could defeat Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, etc. so they set
up websites to attack him personally.
a nationally syndicated conservative talk show host means that all
kinds of mentally unbalanced people become outraged with you and
become obsessed with destroying you. Some of these become
stalkers, some even psycho-sexual stalkers who want to sexually
rape the host or claim that they had sex with him or her.
Jerry Falwell had several homosexual male prostitutes who claimed
on the internet
that they had gay sex with him. Larry Flynn even ran an article in
his porn magazine that Dr. Falwell had sex with his mother! When
Falwell sued for slander, the courts ruled against him because you
cannot sue someone for what they say about you on the internet!
This legal precedent opened the door for all kinds of nut cases
and stalkers to vent their hatred against conservative talk radio
Bob, like all other conservative talk radio hosts, has down
through the years collected his share of Muslim terrorists,
mentally unbalanced people, stalkers, psycho-sexual stalkers, and
some have attempted to murder him!
checked into all the gossip and slander on the internet against
Dr. Bob and found them without merit just like the vile attacks
against Limbaugh, Falwell, etc. The following is a list of the
baseless slanders found on the internet at the time the committee
did it search. You have no doubt read some of them. They are
examples of what sick minds can do to slander public figures. They
are all groundless smears based on the logical fallacy called argumentum
ad hominem in which you try to refute someone’s argument by
calling them names (mean, unkind, unloving, liar, etc).
Dr. Bob could be the wickedest man who ever lived and yet
tell you the truth.
the vile attacks made upon conservative talk radio hosts
eventually fall to the ground
as baseless mean-spirited slander. Only a fool would believe the
slander found on the internet against public figures. Hopefully,
you are not a fool.
Biblical Analysis of Slander
Principles of approach:
The Bible sets up
clear standards to determine if an accusation is admissible or
should be rejected.
These standards are
found in Deut. 19, Psalms, Proverbs, Matt. 18, and 1 Tim. 5.
In 1 Tim. 5, Pastors
are given the highest level of protection by holding accusations
to the highest standards of evidence.
The burden of proof
is on the accuser, not the accused.
The accuser must have
hard evidence and must not be based on any gossip, hearsay, single
witness accusations, etc.
We must begin with
the assumption that the pastor is innocent until proven guilty.
We must not begin
with the assumption that he is guilty and then demand that he
prove they are innocent
Hard evidence refers
to accountant reports, bank records, canceled checks, letters,
If an accusation is
based on an unrecorded conversation (he said- she said), this is
to be dismissed as hearsay evidence and inadmissible.
attacking the character and motive of a man must be rejected
according to Scripture.
The person making the
accusation must have nothing to gain by discrediting the pastor.
Those under church discipline, people trying to split the church,
someone trying to divert attention from his sin, defending a
friend who was offended, etc. have transparent reasons why they
would engage in attacking a pastor.
and associations of pastors who engage in secret meetings and then
publicly attack pastors -
whom they have usually
never met - without
giving them the opportunity to answer their accusations, will
receive the severest judgment of God on their own ministries. This
is particularly true when the accusations have nothing to do with
morals or doctrine but with the private affairs of a local church
such as the hiring and firing of employees. They are busybodies,
tattletales, gossip mongers,
and guilty of pastoral
biblical principles should govern all accusations made against
Pastors. To ignore these Scriptural standards of evidence is to
commit the sins of gossip, slander, single witness, false witness,
malicious witness, and lying. We recommend Dr. Morey’s
book, A Bible Handbook on Slander and Gossip, as the biblical
antidote to such wickedness. The
following is a list of fifty slanders spread around on the
internet against the character of Dr. Morey. New ones are invented
every day by the Father of lies. They have only one goal: to
destroy his ministry. There
is no attempt to reconcile with Dr. Bob. No one attempted to meet
with him or his Board to give them the opportunity to answer any
biblically valid accusations. These websites and blogs are filled
and wrath and anger and clamor and slander and malice”
(Eph. 4:31). Those
engage in such things are the tares among the wheat and not the
children of God.

Morey has been a good friend of mine for many years. I have long
appreciated his understanding of God’s word and his hard work in research and teaching.
He has risked his life to bring a witness for Christ over against
Islam. Naturally he has accumulated critics who have made serious
accusations. I have determined to put no credence in these,
because of my overall confidence in Bob’s ministry, and because I have not seen credible
evidence that any of these accusations are true. What constitutes “credible evidence” in this context? To answer such a question we must follow a biblical
path of inquiry. His book, A
Bible Handbook on Slander and Gossip, sets
forth how the Bible would have us respond to accusations within
the body of Christ. I think Bob has done a good job in summarizing
Scripture’s teachings on gossip and slander. These are timely subjects; given that
many have been using the internet irresponsibly, seeking to
destroy people they don’t
like. Many have compared the internet to the Wild
West, where there is no accountability and any ignorant fool can take a
shot at anyone else. I too have been hit by such people. It is
time that the church took a stand to reinstitute biblical church
discipline and to repudiate lying bloggers. I pray that this book
will help to bring that about.

First of all, reassure yourself that the CK Phenomenon is usually
not the fault of the pastor. We know that CKs have one goal—to
damage &/or get rid of the targeted pastor no matter how
honest, faithful & compassionate you try to be.
They cannot be subdued by negotiation or shamed into stopping.
They will try to gather allies, & will begin to attack your
supporters if they cannot get rid of you.
And, recognize that denominational officials seldom do much to

There sometimes is legal recourse, but only if you have

Rather offer them to God and continue on.
I have been a member of
since 1977, about a year after its formation by Dr. Robert A.
Morey. I have been a
deacon in the church since about 1980 and am to this present day.
Dr. Morey had been my Pastor and Elder for over 21 years up until the
time the Lord called him to a ministry in
in 1998. Dr. Morey
was, and is to this day, a great theologian in the faith and a
very controversial figure in the Christian community; thus many
satanic attacks have occurred over the years--both on him and the
local church. It is no
surprise to me that he is once again under attack.
But as is the promise of God, he will be vindicated, if not
in this life, in the next.
Dr. Morey is not a perfect Christian.
He has told you all this from the beginning.
But as an Elder of the Church, he has much accountability
to the Lord, and much responsibility to us, and therefore cannot
compromise on the doctrines of our faith.
He has preached, from the beginnings of
, the truth and has made no apologies for the gospel.
Therefore it would profit you much to listen to what the
Lord has to say through this teacher that He has given unto you at
this time in history.
As for the allegations at hand brought against Dr. Morey, I do not know
all nor do I want to know all of them.
But as for the one that has been brought to my attention,
that Dr. Morey left
in disgrace and took monies from the church, I will relay the
following truths, in order that the Church may be strengthened.
Dr. Morey preached at New Life for about 21 years.
We never restricted him in what he preached as the Elder
and he never got entangled with the finances as this was the job
of the deacons. In
this time he wrote many books, spoke freely at many conferences
and traveled for the purpose of furthering the Kingdom.
He was pressured many times to leave this small church in
Pennsylvania to take positions with bigger ministries, but never
did because he waited on the Lord's timing in these matters.
When the Lord was ready for him to move, He made it clear
to Dr. Morey and to the local church that it was time.
The church was disappointed in the news, as was to be
expected, but knew that the timing was not ours to control.
We, as a congregation, voted to support his ministry
through prayer and finances as we could afford.
We, to this day, do send a gift almost every month, as we
can afford. We are a
small congregation, designed that way by our King.
We do pray for the ministry in
and for all of you on Wednesday evenings at our prayer meeting.
So in summary, Dr. Morey did NOT leave on bad terms at
, but as a missionary sent out by the people in our congregation.
We did pledge to support him in prayer and with financial
gifts, that are ongoing to this day.
Do take heart in that Satan is noticing you.
This means you are having an impact on the world.
He hates to give up ground that he has claimed for himself.
If there is anything else I can clarify please do not
hesitate to let me know. This
is a battle people, and the stakes are high.
The good news is that we have won!
Colin P. Akridge
I have known Dr. Morey for over twenty five years and his
character has always been a Christian man of integrity and
honesty. He has loved the Lord his God with all his heart, mind,
and soul. I have literally witnessed him his willingness to die
for the Gospel. He is one of the few white brethren I know who is
free from racism and all other “isms” that
divide the Body of Christ. Dr. Morey has never claimed human
perfection but has always said that Christ alone is his
righteousness, grace alone is his plea, and by faith alone he is
man. The accusations against him are vile and wicked because they
are not true.
Dr. George P. Hutchinson
Dr. Morey’s Handbook on
Slander presents and discusses the biblical material, a
plethora of passages dealing with gossip and slander beginning
with its history in the Bible: Satan’s innuendo slandering the
Lord God in the beginning in Eden, the slandering of Job by Satan
and the patriarch’s so-called “friends”, the slandering of
Moses and Aaron by Korah, the slandering of Nehemiah by Sanballat,
finally the slandering of Jesus by false witnesses.
Then the author discusses the primary texts of Scripture on
gossip and slander: Deuteronomy 19:15-21, Psalm 15:1-3 and Psalm
25:8-10, Matthew 18:15-22, 1Timothy 5:15-21, and finally the
passages in Proverbs on gossip and slander.
Morey’s handbook is full of practical and valuable counsel on
recognizing and responding (or not responding) to slander: for
instance, 21 signs of how to recognize a gossip monger.
Last but not least, what makes this little book especially
valuable, are all the contemporary illustrations of gossip and
slander, along with the application of biblical principles to
illustrations are drawn from Dr. Bob’s long ministry and vast
experience as a pastor and as a counselor of pastors (pastor
pastorum) and their parishioners.
B. J. Rudge
I had the privilege of writing my dissertation on the apologetic
approach of Dr. Robert Morey.
Dr. Morey has a high regard for Scripture, and a strong commitment
to defend the biblical faith. The
body of Christ needs more scholars like Dr. Morey, who will not
compromise the faith, but will contend earnestly for it. I highly
recommend his ministry to all believers who want to grow in their
walk with Christ and be equipped to give a reason for the hope
that they have.
May God grant you the strength and grace to endure unjust
criticism joyfully and without bitterness, to forgive those who
insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil
against you, and to recognize that what man intends for harm, God
can use for good (Genesis 50:20).
We know that God will work all your negative experiences and
suffering together for good for you who love Him and are called
according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
have read the false, malicious slanders against you put out by
so-called Christians - who do not understand the grace of God or
his love. I have
read their false statements and I do not agree that these
slanders, which are devilish and evil inspired. In my view, these
slanders and false accusations have their origin in the heart and
pit of hell, where the Devil and his companions will one day will
go for ever with their lies and trickery.
I respect you as a man of God who is governed by the principles of
the written Word of God. I know you have great integrity, both
morally and spiritually. Your testimony for the sake of the Gospel
of Christ is amazing. You have stood up to defend Christianity and
the Gospel from
the attacks from
Islam, Hindu, open theism etc. I have full confidence in you as a Pastor;
head of your home, and in your testimony. The accusations against
you are unethical, illogical, unwarranted, non-spiritual and
immoral. I have full confidence in you.
Kathie Adler (Narrow Way Ministries)
I have known Dr. Robert Morey since the early 1980's when he
referred a lady to me who was studying with Jehovah's Witnesses.
Throughout the years, Dr. Morey has counseled me about my
ministry, giving me wise advice from the Scriptures.
Each time I spoke with him, whether it be about doctrine or
how to handle certain situations, I found him to be impeccably
honest and never doubted his character.
His advice was always right on.
While others use different tactics to further their ministries,
Dr. Morey always refers to Scripture and his Christian character
is always consistent. Never at any time has he given me advice
that was not in keeping with the Word of God nor have I ever
doubted these past twenty eight years that he was anything but
ethical in all his dealings.
attacks on his character are totally unfounded, but, as we all
know, Jesus was attacked more than any human being and Jesus
already told us we, his servants, will also be attacked.
So this is no surprise.
I ask that the attacks be stopped, that the character
assaults cease, and that anyone who truly wants to know the real
Dr. Robert Morey simply ask him themselves.
Once they meet him, they will certainly change their minds.
I thank God for my friendship with Dr. Morey these many years, and
I count it a great privilege to know him personally.
Dr. D. James Kennedy
Dr. Robert A. Morey is an excellent speaker and writer on the
subject of cults and the occult, His books are excellent resource
tools on these -subjects. It is my pleasure to recommend him to
churches everywhere throughout our land.
I have known Dr. Robert Morey for a number of years and welcome
this opportunity to recommend him to you. Dr. Morey is a man with
an excellent understanding of the historic Christian faith and a
particular skill as a defender of the Faith. I heartily recommend
him to you.
It is a genuine privilege for me to recommend Dr. Robert A. Morey
as a competent Biblical scholar in the field of apologetics, Bible
teaching and evangelism. I have known Dr. Morey for over 30 years
and it has been a delight to me to see his developing a fantastic
grasp of Biblical truth, and his unique ability to translate that
exalted truth of God’s
Word into down-to-earth, meaningful and methodical ways his
audiences can make use of it.
Kevin Johnson (Mt. Carmel Ministries)
Dr. Robert Morey is one of the finest Biblical scholars in the
field of comparative religious studies (apologetics) in
. His books and presentations have been tremendously useful. I
highly recommend him to you.
The above recommendations are only a few examples of the
huge outpouring of support for
Dr. Morey. Dr. Gleason Archer, Dr. Walter Martin, and many other
well-known Christian leaders and pastors repeatedly spoke out
against the slander and gossip campaigns against Dr. Morey. For
example, Dr. Bob was not “thrown
out by his denomination.”
He is a member in good
standing with the Southern Baptist Convention and anyone can
contact the CA Orange SBA County office for their recommendation:
N. Golden Circle Dr., #101, Santa Ana, CA 92705-4022 Phone: (714) 547-5409. Yet,
this lie is still on the internet to this day.
Those who have known Dr. Morey for many years repudiate the
lies spread on the internet against him. Every
church he founded supports
him to this day.
What is shameful is that
most of whom have never met Dr. Bob, have joined
the heathen in smearing his character. They have set up websites
and blogs and engaged in gossip and slander in the attempt to
destroy Dr. Bob’s
Just ask yourself this question: Since no credible evidence
has ever been put forward by anyone
concerning false teaching or immorality and the accusations come
from those who violate Deut. 19, Matt. 18, 1 Tim. 5, etc., was
not Paul right when he said not to entertain such vile
slander and gossip?
