#WhoWouldJesusSue: Here’s to Internet Activists

We here at WWJS would like to take a moment and give some shout-outs to everyone who has thus far stood in solidarity with us. To the great big community of internet activists who tweeted, Facebooked, blogged, commented, retweeted, and re-blogged on behalf of Alex Grenier and Tim Taylor and abuse survivors everywhere: Thank you.

Extensive Archive on Grenier Defamation Lawsuit Goes Live Today

A team of volunteers has put together a significant resource on the lawsuit of Grenier & Grenier v. Taylor & Grenier — the Grenier Defamation Lawsuit Archive. This Archive is based on a similar one produced by Brad Sargent after the 2012 case of Beaverton Grace Bible Church v. Smith. According to Alex Grenier’s volunteer team: “The Archive writers and editors have sought to be as factual and fair as possible in presenting historical events and in representing all sides accurately.”
