The Quack Awards – How to Handle a Quack Counselor
UPDATE Sept 2021: I have come to believe that Jeff Crippen does not practise what he preaches. He vilely persecuted an abuse victim and spiritually abused many other people in the Tillamook congregation. Go here to read the evidence. Jeff has not gone to the people that he spiritually and emotionally abused. He has not apologised to them, let alone asked for their forgiveness.
Once again we have been contacted by an abuse victim who has been “quacked.” She went to a “biblical counselor” and was told she needed to stop considering divorce and instead pursue reconciliation. Then she was handed a bill for this “therapy.” Keep in mind now that this abuse has gone on for decades with no repentance. The victim has been incredibly longsuffering, and her “counselor” was fully aware of these facts.
I propose that we establish the “quack award” which we can give to all of these “professionals” who tell abuse victims that God wants them to reconcile with their abuser, then tells them that they need to consider their own sinful role in the breakdown of their “marriage.”
Now, the quack award could be a yellow rubber ducky that you hand to the pro, squeeze it so it quacks, and then say “I think we are done here.” Or, you could email them the following video and see if they get the message:
Or maybe these would work too. Just keep a box handy and award them one at a time –
