You don't have a problem spewing venom but you obviously have a low ability to undeptstand what you read. It is obvious to intelligent individuals that you are truly ignorant (look it up but don't use wikipedia). I will stop short of calling you stupid because I don't know you. I guess???

Just stop attacking the good people if that Church. Please! Pretty please with sugar on top.

First let me say Yeah and Nikki are not the same, and I have attend the church in the past. And I know other things have been covered up by the Deacons. Since you seem so sure he isn't guilty and your a proud member then why are you hiding behind a name...Since I have attended and work with current members who know how I feel, seemed it was a little secret I wanted to keep...

I went to school there for about a year and a half. When I went back to public school, I was so behind in my school work that I had to get a tutor to get caught up. Thank God I didn't stay there longer than a year. The "school" was nothing but a joke.
While I was there, I saw a lot of questionable things. There probably needs to be another former school administrator locked up as well..... I believe everything that he has been accused of.

All I'm saying is, if you allow dummies to teach your kids then what you get is more dummies! These poor students can't help it, they don't have the choice of where they go to school, its the parents fault! Former student isn't the only one who this happened to. I know several former students who went there that can't even count, spell, or type! Basic things that any adult should know. I'm not attacking anyone except for parents who are dumb enough to send their kids to a place like this.

Some kind of testing should be given by the state before these kids pass to the next grade. I too have noticed by posters on here that, are connected with the school/church, that the sentence structure and spelling is sometimes way off . It is not fair to these kids to get substandard education and then when they go to get higher education they have to take classes to make up.

Based on what a couple of you "posters" are saying it just doesn't seem possible that anyone that went to that school is even remotely capable of posting so I would just stop commenting about it if I were you.

All you want to do is attack the church members and the attendees of the school. What makes you different from others that ridicule and bring despair to the innocent. Only one person was accused, not an entire church.

You two are pathetic!!

Give the staff a spelling test and a writing assignment and see just how smart they are.

I also went there as student A few years ago. Most of the work is based on the bible and not what we need to live and work in the real world. Don't get me wrong, God is good but so is having a good education. Not only that but when I was there they teachers didn't really teach. We did all of our work in a booklet then graded it our self at a table. We could cheat all day long if we wanted. I went from that back to a public school and also had to have a tutor just to get caught up. And John price and his son that works there both need lessons on respect. I had never had a teacher treat me like they did.. My 2 cents.

Well my daughter was molested as a child and the one guilty ran before he was served with warrant. She never got her day in court and it destroyed her life because she paid with her innocense and childhood and he never paid. He anger in her heart and the wondering why God allowed it to happen to little children Has never left her mind so I pray that God will show the guilty in this because he not only would have done wrong but would have done it as a man of God.

Its not on the court case information website at all, I wonder how this happened? He should be there just like everyone else. I searched and searched and came up empty handed. Only thing about him on there is traffic violations. It was on this website 2-3 days after it happened and now it has disappeared. Interesting....
