Her allegations brought down megachurch pastor Bruxy Cavey. Then the anonymous trolls came for her, demanding that she give up her blog.
On May 6, 2014, one of the most prominent evangelical women in America launched a public crusade against a man who led a church with more than 6,000 members.
Bruxy Cavey, of Full Nelson Church in Dallas, had a blog, MyChapel, where she posted stories about her life and the lives of her family. In one post, she wrote:
My name is Bruxy Cavey. I am a wife and mother of three. And before we get into the reason for this post, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Bruxy Cavey. I am a wife, a mother (the third) and I am currently in my mid 40’s. I was homeschooled in high school, finished my bachelors degree in theology from Dallas Baptist University, took a few years off to work in the corporate world and then spent the remainder of my 20’s in ministry. My father had three children from the church and moved to the mission field. He was an international missionary to the Phillipines. My husband and I are currently missionaries in the Philippines.
After that post, Cavey and her family went on to have trouble with the law and had to get out of their home to avoid eviction. But the details of those troubles didn’t matter, or couldn’t matter, to Cavey’s detractors.
I’m not here to be mean.
We are all human, and we all make mistakes. In this case, however, I am going to say something that I have never before said publicly about anyone:
Yes, all of my husband’s family members were pastors.
Yes, my husband is in the top 10 pastors with the largest following.
Yes, I attended an evangelical college.
Yes, I love my husband dearly.
Yes, I love my children dearly.
Yes, all of my children go to school.
If anybody deserves to have her life destroyed, it is my husband. I don’t know if he is “the man” that the trolls are hoping to portray him as, but he certainly won’t be the man that makes fun of a woman who is tired of
