Back to Reality, of Sorts:
“What Fresh Hell Is This?”

• Dr. R.L. Hymers, in an unsafe, cultic link from the summer of 2009, Hides Behind the Skirts of a 25-year-old boy, who in turn threatens to report me to the FBI. (Or, maybe he really did. Too bad the Bureau can’t get hold of my phone number, for, lo—I’ve been waiting to hear from said Feds for years, now.) NOTE: That entire section has now been re-written from Dr. Hymers’ own point of view, so that, retroactively (and, of course, dishonestly) Dr. Hymers is claiming to have written to the FBI personally, rather than having had his son do it–because the son has now been disgraced by being publicly indicted alongside a celebrity (former baseball player Lenny Dykstra).

I can, of course, document that Robert Hymers III was deeply involved in that esisode, just as I can document the fact that I attended his father’s church for at least a year and a half; he did, after all, used to send me notes. Notes that he signed in his own hand.

I can also provide plenty of notes that have been sent to me over the years by people who were deeply damaged by their experiences in the R.L. Hymers church. I would insist on redacting names, but there have been plenty of them.

Dear Joy,
I was facinated by your expose of Bob Hymers.I can’t believe he is still around.Looking back I THINK HE IS A CHILD MOLESTER!He took me over his knee and twaped me across the back of my legs with a bamboo back scratcher,and one time with an umbrella,which he hit me so hard he broke the umbrella.Scarry dude.Write me if you get a chance.

Like you I attended Hymer’s church in the early 80’s. Like you I was wounded by his spite and anger. Found your blog by doing a google of Hymer’s name.

I know of his duplicitous, sadistic, domineering nature and don’t really care enough about him now to get into everything he did.

Got saved anyway, by God’s grace.

I noticed something in the following article that might interest you.
Check out this story on Lenny Dyskra, notice the account’s name that is also arrested.:

Good chance it is Hymer’s boy.

How do you get your family members away from Hymers Church?

Dr. Ms. Attilla. I too was a member of the Hymers cult during the 1980s when it changed from the Fundamentalist Army to the Fundamentalist Baptist Tabernacle. And during that time, I too witnessed verbal and physical abuse directed at church members. I witnessed a split by the former assistant pastor, J. Richard Olivas who took a number of prominent members with him. Then, I was kicked out for being unemployed and not tithing enough. I applaud your work and will be doing what I can to ruin this man, his plucked-chicken wife and his jailbird son! Never back down! Never say die! Away with the Hymers cult!
