As an assistant prosecutor of the case, helping out TE Kevin Carr (TE Art Sartorius was the other assistant prosecutor), I can’t say precisely that I was thrilled to my fingertips when the verdict came out. To tell the truth to my readers, I felt like I had been punched in the gut, run over, shot, and then bombed for good measure. The details of what happened are here. It makes me so very sad, since the Federal Vision divides brothers from other brothers (even those who do not themselves hold to the FV!). I have seen it time after time after time. Men I used to respect I can no longer respect, or I have significantly diminished respect for them.
Update: I was incorrect about the record of this trial being in executive session. I apologize. The commission reported in open session, so the records are open. The charges and the plea are available to read here.
