Why Am I Still Warning People About Jim Wright?


He Hasn’t Posted Much for Over a Month

Am I just “Piling On?”

Some may ask why I’ve bothered over the past month to continue to post articles revealing the past of Jim Wright, especially in the wake of his Crossroad Junction Page being removed by Facebook.

Here’s why.

Jim and Marianne Wright’s Blog Still Speaks

1. Although Jim Wright isn’t posting his typical vitriol and venom over the past month, his Crossroad Junction blog still remains up with his past articles against multiple people perpetuating and continuing to distribute his lies.  His blog still speaks. Just because his lies and slander got him removed from Facebook for Multiple Community Guideline Violations, it’s clear there are no such guidelines at work on his blogs or through his alleged fellowships.

Jim Wright Self-Proclaimed Demagogue


Jim Wright’s Reputation with Maryland Legislators

Called a “Self Proclaimed Demagogue”

This is a continuation of a series started HERE that provides much of the history of Jim Wright, along with his father Bob Wright, in the Shepherding Movement and intense political activism.

This is an article in the Annapolis Capitol that further gives some insight into the arrogance and bullying that Jim Wright became well known for in Maryland. What is sad is that these tactics continually backfired and in the end wound up harming the causes Jim Wright claimed to be supporting.  Most issues Jim Wright pursued ended up losing, often times in part because of his actions.  This is why the Moral Majority quickly kicked Jim Wright and the Maryland Chapter that was founded jointly by his father Bob Wright, out of the national organization, after Jim Wright embarrassed them nationally in the press with an attempt to close a bakery that Jim Wright claimed was selling “Pornographic Gingerbread Men.”

Jim Wright – Sleazy Tactics


Unethical Tactics Embarrass Pro-Life Movement

First Cookies then This

This is a continuation of a series begun HERE.

As has been noted in this series before, Jim Wright’s shenanigans throughout the 1980s were the target of a great deal of ridicule and they resulted in national embarrassment with the Moral Majority rejecting their Maryland Chapter and tossing them along with Jim Wright out of the organization. You can see see why with these types of campaigns that continued even after the Moral Majority wisely and quickly disassociated themselves from the sleazy tactics of Jim Wright and the Family Protection Lobby.

This article is presented without extensive comment as a further example of the scorched earth type tactics employed by Jim Wright in promoting his agendas. Keep in mind that much of the criticism of these actions came from fellow Pro-Life supporters. The issue wasn’t the Pro-Life position.  The issue was the underhanded and unethical tactics employed.  30+ years later Jim Wright hasn’t changed very much.  He still skirts the edge of slander and libel in his predictable and apparently compulsive attacks upon others.

Jim Wright Stacks the Deck


Stacking the Deck is Nothing New for Jim Wright

This Sounds Familiar

This is the continuation of a series examining the history of Jim Wright and the Family Protection Lobby, which begins HERE.

Jim Wright - Stacking the Deck

Jim Wright – Stacking the Deck

The more I learn of the long stream of public scandals involving Jim Wright and the Family Protection Lobby which Jim purportedly ran under the nepotistic appointment of his father Bob Wright, who established multiple organizations in different spheres of Community, Government and Religion, the more I see a thread of similar actions at work today. When I first became familiar with Jim Wright, it was initially through his announcement through Crossroad Junction where he made outrageous and false accusations against a Christian Brother, by citing another organization called Nathan’s Voice which he claimed had investigated the basis of his charges independently.  It turned out that Nathan’s Voice was none other than Jim Wright himself speaking for an organization with no other named parties.  Add to that that Jim Wright used a professional and academic fraud to trump up additional false charges and you see the type of man he really is.

This type of blatantly unethical action is nothing new for Jim Wright and it follows a longstanding pattern that extends back to Jim Wright’s days in the Family Protection Lobby.  It was blatantly hypocritical back then, just as it remains blatantly hypocritical today. This is the background story to an early example of how Bob Wright and his son Jim Wright, attempted to use similar unethical methods in the 1980s to promote their agenda back then.

Jim Wright’s Tainted Reputation


Annapolis Capitol Editorial

Jim Wright’s Reputation in Maryland

Jim Wright routinely refers to himself as something of a respected crusader from the 1980s.  He’s claimed to have been the subject of books and articles outlining his groundbreaking work in this area.  It all sounds marvelous until you actually research and see what he did and what was said about him.

As has been noted in a series of posts which starts HERE, which was started just following Jim and Marianne Wright’s Facebook Page being deleted by Facebook after multiple Community Guideline Violations, all Jim Wright really was in the 1980s was a young man placed in a position by his father in what appears to have been an act of nepotism and control to try and manage a family based “empire” of organizations which all circled around Bob Wright at the time.  Jim Wright today attempts to do the same thing with his own stable of LLC corporations and holding corporations and his unsubstantiated claims to be part of a “vast network of organic churches in Northern Virginia.”  It’s nothing new for Jim.  It’s a pretty established deceptive pattern.

Family Protection Lobby and Related Scandals


Multiple Ensuing Scandals Involving the Wrights

From Gingerbread Men to Beyond

As was noted in previous articles in this series which starts HERE and referenced in Annapolis Capital Newspaper articles at the time, the short term association of the Wrights with the Moral Majority before the National Organization kicked out their embarrassing chapter, was also in part, a move by the Wrights to maintain control over the contributions.  The Moral Majority national office apparently processed the contributions and there was concern on the part of the local chapter that not all funds were being returned for direct use and control at the local level.  Given that much of the base for the Maryland Chapter was evidently tied into the New Covenant Churches of Maryland of which Bob Wright was the President, this was clearly not an acceptable situation and it’s my opinion that the separation of organizations would have likely occurred anyway, just over this issue, but as the local chapter had made the National Organization a laughing stock in the media, things moved that much more quickly.

Facebook Suspends Crossroad Junction


Jim and Marianne Wright’s Crossroad Junction Facebook Page Deleted

It’s been a long time coming.

Jim Wright - Suspended from Facebook

Jim Wright – Suspended from Facebook

Facebook Suspended Jim and Marianne Wright’s Crossroad Junction page on March 5, 2015.  As of March 19, 2015 the page has not returned. In general, any page missing for more than 2 weeks is a good indication that it’s been permanently deleted. Jim and Marianne Wright using various identities as Fulcrum Ministries, Crossroad Junction, Nathan’s Voice and Fulcrum Express (and this is not an exhaustive list) have been pumping a steady stream of misinformation, innuendo, gossip and outright slander toward multiple people for over 2 years.  The past few weeks have seen even more ridiculous and shriller charges of stalking, cult leadership and actively promoting sexual abuse and defending sexual abusers directed at the author of this blog who stood up to this activity and behavior and dared to point out their aberrant and bizarre behavior.  It culminated with a desperate attempt to try and appeal to a page population by over 6,000 people, most of whom never participated actively, and were from 3rd world countries, to start a campaign of harassment toward the author of this blog as well.  In addition, Jim Wright also began taking his slanderous personal attacks and actually paying to make them sponsored advertised pages in other people’s feeds.  When you can’t get attention based on your own merit and reputation, I guess you have to pay for it.
