Since 2015, Episcopal priest Bob Malm, formerly rector of Grace Episcopal in Alexandria VA, abused his position repeatedly. This included:

  • Trying to drag Sigrid Yahner, a 75-year old woman dying of COPD into court.
  • Committing perjury in writing, while advised by an attorney.
  • Trying to shut down online criticism by falsely claiming that he was being threatened.
  • Repeatedly making false statements of fact and law to the court.
  • Deliberately misusing memorial donations.
  • Forcing innocent family members out of his church.
  • Threatening church members.

Even worse, the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia and Bishop Susan Goff have refused to address Bob Malm’s outrageous behavior, saying they will only get involved if Malm faces criminal charges. 

Join me in demanding that the Diocese conduct a full, thorough, and independent investigation of Malm, then act on the results. Abuse is abuse, whether it’s sexual, financial, emotional, physical, or other. And so far, there’s been zero accountability. In fact, Malm now serves as Interim Rector of St. Gabriel’s parish in Marion, Massachussets.

No one should have to spend the final months of their life being bullied by clergy. Church should be a safe place for all persons. And clergy should be accountable for their actions. 

It is time to hold Bob Malm accountable. Learn more at http://www.bobmalm.com
