Rev. Robert Duthie was very instrumental in my spiritual growth when I attended his Wednesday night prayer and praise services at Lincoln Avenue United Church Cambridge. I find it hard to believe that this man would do any harm to anyone, yet on the other hand we are human and full of sin. We are all capable of doing any kind of crime because we are all full of sin. I do not condone sin of any kind but I know that not one of us is without sin. I am thankful that our God forgives and is always willing to accept us back into his fold when we admit our sins and ask His forgiveness. I am very thankful that God is our judge and NOT mankind, or for sure we would all be wiped out. My prayers are with him and with those he is accused of harming.

Robert Duthie was acquitted of all charges on December 4, 2008. I find it interesting that his name has been dragged through the mud for about two and a half years while his accuser goes unidentified. Of course, Chatham has a past history of trying and convicting a minister who was later acquitted (Rev. Russell Horsburgh). This time, they got it right.

Now who is the pig Jeff ? I think you need to ask forgiveness for your judgements on this man. One day you may stand before the judge of all God himself.... think hard about this one

jeff, maybe the smoke is in your pea brain and the fire in what's left of your common sense. I would use the word 'idiot' but that would be too generous. Shame on you.

i can't comment on the fact if duthie is a molester or not but i can say that i did have a homosexual affair with him for 3 months. he was a very closeted gay man with some issues and a lot of guilt! he carried a lot of secrets form his family and his church. these are my memories of him from 1995 when i was 25 years old

Between 1995-2002 (at least), Bob Duthie was a pastor at Central United in Woodstock. He also used to hang around the city's Southside Park when the nearby high school day started and ended and kids took short cuts through the park. He was also down there at school football practices/games. That place was always a gay hangout, but he was the only one I saw who watched the youth. He and his car were known by sight - hard to miss a car with an abbreviation for your occupation and your initials on the plate. That's rather obvious for a "closeted gay male". I knew of him, and being gay myself saw him at several male-only venues. He did not go for men within 40 years of his own age. Those of us who had observed him agreed that he was odd, because he would ignore/get upset at you or walk/drive away from you when intent on a certain person. He also tried to get people to call him "Coach". Older coach of a boy's team was his fantasy, perhaps? It was blatantly obvious that he was fixated on male youth.

I do not denigrate Janet's spirituality. Reverend Duthie may have been a wonderful minister, but ministers have their failings too. He may have been acquitted in this case, but he's still weird.

Then again, he will be judged by God instead. I just did a Google search for his name, and I found an obituary with photos that matched the man I know. Robert Duthie passed away on May 8, 2010.

I personally knew this man (Rev) Bob Duthie. He was a frequent visitor to the Gay Bath House on York Street in London. He was only interested in having sex with young guys. Very creepy the way he would go about to meet and have sex with younger guys. Ask me how I know this. I used to go there years ago and saw this with my own eyes. He was also stabbed years ago in Chatham in a park because he was cruising for the young ones. How do I know that...he told me and showed me his scar. Say Hi to Satin Rev!
