Some of her followers just don't get it. Here she is denying she broke in and and pushed a police officer and a member of the church. She could 't get hired as a chaplin in a prison, let along work again at Salem UCC.

Well, it's about time that this woman got charged with something. She is a wolf in sheep's clothing, out to destroy everything in her path.
Praying for this congregation to get their church back.

Shame on ALL of you involved. Did you forget that your actions are speaking louder than your words? You are in a house of God, and yet you carry on as if it was your own. Shame! Stop this nonsense before you stumble any more people who want nothing more than to just go to church and worship the Creator.

You have no idea of what you are commenting on. It is their house of worship. I am praying that their "house" is restored back to its standing when Rev. H. Stanley Dunn was our minister. It is a shame that it took some members this long to realize the true "Rev" Darcy.God bless you all in your quest for a comforting place to worship.

Give a woman alittle authority and a title (especially like "minister")and you have Shakespeare in motion.
They'll sing preaches and praises out of one side of their mouth and "gobble" de guck out of the otherside--but that's the part they forget and besides, Jesus will forgive them, ha! Hypocrites never having a meaningful relationship nor never finding one. B-b-b-but they are "married" to Jesus!

Nobody agrees with you, so go back to reading your bible.

Actually, it's God's house of worship. I think Rev. Darcy has forgotten that!

Sounds like a set up to me....they just so happen to be waiting in an empty church...they made calls to some of the people telling them they were not going to have services that day, they locked the church knowing she had a baptism, sounds like real nice people to me....yup real Christian like....their day will come.

Jesus told His disciples that if they came to a place where they were not welcome, they should shake the dust off their feet, turn around and never go back. Where is GOD in all of this? Shame on those who crush the Holy Spirit. The Bible clearly tells their fate.
