Updates on the Ben Courson Story: How To Throw Your Ex Under the Church Bus…
This story has now garnered national attention and there are ongoing journalistic investigations happening as we speak, as well as inquiries from pastors and others.
I expect the national story to break sometime this week or next.
In the meantime, a particularly disturbing video of Ben Courson from 2017 has made the rounds and I want to show and comment on it here.
At about the 13 minute mark, Courson rips into his former wife while claiming that he doesn’t want to “expose” her.
He then compares himself to the biblical prophet Hosea and his former wife to the prophets wife Gomer…who the text tells us was a prostitute.
This was done in church, over the air, and is available on Youtube.
His ex wife is believed to be under a non disclosure agreement…meaning she can’t defend herself and if she could, it would be without this sort of reach and access.
Interestingly enough, none of these claims are in the divorce filings in Jackson County , Oregon.
They were divorced under “Irreconcilable differences” and he is paying her spousal support until 2024…if I’m reading the documents properly.
There’s along way to go on this one…more to come.
