So, evidently, Muckraker, Google will yank posts if someone requests it, but I don't know how to work that process. I certainly wasn't going to hire an attorney to threaten Google. Maybe my former pastor did. I find it interesting that Google tells me that I have to provide the court order for them to remove posts, but they didn't require it from the pastor (because there wasn't and isn't a court order as of this posting). I also still don't understand why they allowed the reviews of ME. Below are a couple examples that I sent to Google and show how Chuck and Stephanie were reviewing me and not using the review forum appropriately to review the establishment.
Stephanie said: "Nov 18, 2009 Beware! Negative reviewer is currently under church discipline. JulieAnne, the other reviewer is currently under church discipline."
LANGDON who is likely JulieAnne, is wielding 1 Cor. 6:7-8 in order to further defame BGBC and Pastor Chuck O'Neal. It is convenient to wage a three and a half year war of reviling defamation in which you and those with you ACCUSE THE PASTOR AND CHURCH OF HORRIFIC CRIMES AGAINST GOD AND MEN, to then hide behind 1 Cor. 6:7-8.
Have a great weekend, everyone! :)
