“Editor’s note — In this Sept. 21, 2002, editorial, we came out in support of New Saint Andrews College’s move to downtown Moscow. Much has happened in the 15 years since that would lead to many of us on the board to reconsider the position we took those many years ago.”Continue reading →
“All the varied expressions of transgressive sexuality currently being celebrated in our culture, and now by the highest court in the land, are out of accord with God’s creational design for human sexuality, and are therefore sinful in the eyes of God. Whenever men set themselves up arrogantly to challenge God’s holy standards for sexuality, seeking to teach contrary to what God has taught us in His Word, they are vainly attempting something that is not within their authority to accomplish. We cannot bestow dignity where God has withheld it, and we cannot join together what God has determined shall remain forever separated.” —Douglas Wilson Continue reading →
“Steven’s father refers to the revelation of Steven’s sexual offending as his, the father’s, personal ‘9-11.’ Steven’s parents see this matter as a terrible tragedy, secondarily for Steven and primarily for the victims involved.” Dean Wullenwaber
In 2005 David Sitler, father of serial pedophile Steven Sitler, retained lawyer Dean Wullenwaber to primarily represent his son (PMR 23, 24) — not primarily ensure swift justice for his son’s victims. Now, twelve-and-a-half years later, Dave Sitler pays attorneys to force a helpless child live in the same home as his pedophiliac father. “Steven’s sexual offending” is a “personal 9-11” for his victims and for his son. No one else.
Some people have forgotten the terror of 9-11. Others never understood it. And for others, 9-11 is much more personal than words could ever describe.
On Saturday two days before memorial day [sic], I was going to bed about 11:00 pm. I decided to masterbate [sic] and after I started I thought it would be fun or exciting to see if I could voyeur on someone. I then looked out my bedroom window blinds and saw lights on I opened the blinds and remembered my binoculars I went and got my binoculars and used them to look into the window that had a light on. No one ever came into the window and I could not focus my binoculars. I used that as an excuse to keep looking. “Just till I get my binoculars to work. About five minutes later the lights went off and I realized how stupid I had just been and realized I had to tell treatment and possibly probation.
When I moved into my apt. I had noticed people in a window of a different house and subconsciously thought about coming back to look later. Then when I went to Colville to get my stuff. My Dad offered me binoculars I said no thank you I can’t remember if he continued asking me (and I gave in) or if I just ended up with them in a box when I came back to Moscow. I had said no because I knew it would be a temptation. I later used these binoculars for work looking at the roof line and justified having them by saying “maybe these will be useful.” I hadn’t been watching my red flags and doing my numbers was now so it wasn’t very helpful yet.

The Presiding Ministers of the Communion of Reformed Evangelical Churches inadvertently demonstrated exactly what the words “grievous malfeasance” and “corruption” mean. They embodied it. Continue reading →
