Mr. Rushton's letter to David Knight at First Baptist Prescott

I wrestled last year whether to publish this private letter that I didn't write. But since the late Mrs. Bodine (now known as Melody Thomas-Morgan) and her attorney decided to enter it into the public record (despite 1st Amendment religion protections in our Arizona Constitution), here it is.

This was typical of her attorney's smear campaign against Mrs. Bodine's husband. Former judge Hinson allowed stuff like this over objections. To their credit, Judge Bluff and Judge Hess did not.

Interestingly, even though the Respondent moved to strike for religious and salacious reasons, and even though his motion nor this evidence ever came up in court, it is in the public record anyway. To paraphrase God,"What goes around, comes around."

It's case number DO-20060917 in the Yavapai County (Arizona) Superior Court if you're interested.

Below for downloading is a letter from an elder in a house church the late Mrs. Bodine used to attend with her husband and formerly lovely children. It is from Warren Rushton to "pastor" David Knight and the so-called "Board of Deacons" at the First Baptist Church of Prescott, Arizona. Click on the thumbnails to see the full sized document.

Aside from the fact that the title "pastor" does not appear in the Bible and Jesus despised such titles, this guy is a "music 'pastor'" a double negative.
