To the best of our knowledge, this is an exact transcription from a portion of a Corps Morning in May or June of 1998. Apparently, Martindale authored this and subsequently read it to the entire Way Corps. It appears to be Martindale's take on the basic spiritual problem of man versus woman, and supposedly the godly (?) solution. By not raising any objections, it seems the other Trustees endorsed this disgusting diatribe. It reads like a tawdry sex novel:
Transcription begins here:
The woman's problem is in authority of the commandment where she tends towards the senses and her own mis-guided opinions moved by emotional passion. Mans problem is weakness in light of the woman's opening.
The cure all of all, the eternal vagina fix. It's the reason goddess worship is
so popular, mans basic craving for a mother and a vixen.
Best possible scenario, in a base passionate attitude: his erection buried deep and pulsating in the source of his life, the external vagina, while at the same
time sucking his thumb in a fetal position being told everything will be
alright, just leave it to me.
The renewed mind in Christ Jesus the Lord delivers a woman from the spiritually savage mindset of terminal bitchiness, thinking the sun rises out of her vagina, and the moon and stars out of her brain. While a man is delivered in the Lord of the constant threat of being neutered; while he whimpers to feed me and fuck me every other minute.

I believe this excerpt may be most revealing about the deep cracks in Martindale's psyche. His use of the words "savage", "terminal bitchiness", and vulgar sexual language in describing women, and his obvious stated desire to return to the safety of the womb, coupled with his evident fear of castration yet intense sexual passion, simultaneously reveals his bitter hatred for, yet utter helplessness and dependency upon, women. The snapshot we are given here is one of a deeply conflicted, extremely sick individual, in the dangerously unthinkable position of being responsible for the counsel of thousands of women in his care.
At the time Martindale said this, he was allegedly sexually assaulting a woman. A few months after he said it, Martindale allegedly sexually exploited a married woman at the Advanced Class at The Way International Headquarters. Also, according to his own deposition page 123, there is evidence that Martindale had told Rivenbark about his extra-marital affairs at least as early 1995
In light of fellow Trustee Rosalie Rivenbark being aware of Martindale's problems with sexual exploitation of women since 1995 (according to Martindale's deposition page 123), why didn't the sexually explicit ravings of this twisted man set off red flags for Rivenbark? With what she is on record as having been aware of at the time, this kind of insane ranting should have set off explosions of alarms in Rivenbark's head. Or was this kind of sexual innuendo and opinion commonplace and accepted by Rivenbark and the rest of the upper echelon?
For the Way Trustees to claim that they never knew of Martindale's sexual exploitation of women in their care is ludicrous. For them to even claim they had no knowledge of it is reason enough to disqualify them from their positions. They would have to be blind, deaf, and dumb not to be aware of Martindale's actions, intents, and opinions.
It is my conclusion that the current Board of Trustees, especially Rosalie Rivenbark, have demonstrated that they are not fit to govern The Way International in a way that would secure the safety of their people, especially of the women for which they are responsible.
