SGM Board Covers Up Request for Resignation of C.J. Mahaney and John Loftness
John Loftness Resigns as Chairman of the SGM Board
The most frequently cited defendant in the lawsuit is John Loftness. He is in the greatest legal jeopardy according the charges listed. John was a pastor at Covenant Life Church until September 2007. At that time, he became senior pastor of Solid Rock Church in Riverdale, MD. Six months ago, John was appointed Chairman of the Board for Sovereign Grace Ministries.
Legally and spiritually, John is the most powerful man in all of Sovereign Grace Ministries. He is "the spiritual leader" of the entire movement. He has also covered up for C.J. more than anyone other leader in SGM since his installation. Now he is being charged with covering up sexual molestation. This description of his powers as Chairman comes directly from the SGM Bylaws.
John and Gary stand out as you read the charges. Gary pastors the men and their families attending the Sovereign Grace Pastors College. He is also a pastor in C.J.'s church - Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville. Like John, he has been a staunch defender of C.J.
Instead, Harvey, Shank, Harris, and Loftness focused on making sure C.J. was treated "humanely" while they expressed "no such sentiments" for those who were treated inhumanely.
When that was not possible he had other people like Shank, Kauflin, Harvey, Loftness or Connolly do it for him.
The day after I released my documents on July 6, 2011, Harvey, Purswell, Cabaniss, Connolly, Gamache, Greasley, Loftness, Osborne, Prater, and Shank were installed on the interim Board.
Instead of Spanier, Schultz, Paterno and Curley; we have Harvey, Loftness, Kober and Keinath.
