A news alert just arrived from our Spokane, Washington contributor, Richard Lee, a pastor and rising radio talk show host, informing us of the death of Rev. Richard Dortch whom we both knew for many years.  My acquaintance with Dortch began when I was an evangelist and he was the Illinois Superintendent for The Assemblies of God (AG) duirng 1970 to 1983. He also served as the Executive Presbyter for AG from 1971-1985 and I would later work with him when he took the helm for Jim Bakker’s PTL Club, where I was a regular guest.

ReligionPastor Jerry Hanoum Family Member Speaks Out

A family member of Pastor Jerry Hanoum who committed suicide on May 4th has contacted us to set the record straight about him and the accusations against him. Were they valid?  The answer is here. It is with permission that this email is published by me. Even though permssion was granted to use the name of that family member, we chose not to reveal it to prevent possible complications. The email sent is printed exactly as received, meaning no changes or edits. It is published in its entirety. This writer had also re-thought the newspaper’s role in his suicide which was published before this email was received. See story:  Rob Bell’s No Hell Doesn’t Jell.
