This is a side to The Way International that the
Trustees would like to keep within their inner circle of leaders. General
attendees at a typical Sunday Service at The Way International or one of the
Way fellowships run around the various parts of the country will hear
Martindale yell and scream and use foul language, but he works hard to keep his
darkest side hidden from public view.
Those on staff at one of
the Way facilities and those in the Way Corps are constantly subjected to a
side of Martindale that can only be described as extremely aggressive,
intolerant, threatening and foul mouthed.

Excerpt from letter in
July 1994 to the Way Corps declaring war on homosexuals. The author is Loy
Craig Martindale - President of The Way International.
I'd like to say to you
"closet" homosexuals in the corps household that you'd better run,
because you cannot hide! If I have to personally take on every Corps fellowship
in this country and world to smoke this out, then I will. You will be exposed
and embarrassed and flushed; so you might as well make up your mind to get out
now. Even you who are genuinely convicted of your terrible behavior and finally
and genuinely want help, you will probably still be dropped from the Corps
household because you have lied to God and me and your Corps brothers and
sisters for so many years to justify your insane thinking and sneaky behavior.
However, that is not the end of the world if you genuinely want help.....we
could still allow you to be a part of Way Ministry fellowships, although not in
the Corps household; and perhaps somewhere down the road you could do the Corps
again and do it clean and proper and pure in your thinking.
Remember, the Word says
that homos are the "lowest of the people," and that is certainly
true. You female fags, called lesbians, might as well have dogs lick your slimy
twats as another woman! You wimp-ass fag men who still think that somehow you
have the right to take the grace of God in vain might as well be corn-holing
horses with your dung-infested dicks! That's the way I feel about you and your
thoughts and your repugnancy. You are an abomination to God and the household
of The Way Corps and The Way Ministry. You are detestable and despicable and
repugnant and worthy of death. You are so far beyond saltiness that you are the
ultimate illustration of being worthless and not even fit for the dunghill. You
are liars to God and His Word and a total disgrace to everything God did in
Jesus Christ to bring the Corps training to you. I want these fag-ass,
lily-livered, rump-ranger, butt-pirate, turd-burglar, pillow-biter slime balls
out of the Corps household! If you Corps on the field and in leadership
responsibilities, starting with the clergy and our Limb coordinators, can't do
it, then I will personally have to do it myself; but it will get done down to
my last breath if that's what it takes! How dare you take the grace of God in
vain, some of you, to think that you can continue to harbor homosexual
fantasies and passions in your mind and soul. Do you think you're fooling God?
Do you think you can keep fooling me? Eventually your thoughts will lead to
your behavior, and have already. Some of us walk by the spirit of God, and if
you give us time we will smoke your sorry asses out and bring degradation to
your lives so that you can't hurt anybody in The Way Ministry again. You should
be thankful you're not in the Old Testament times, because there are some of us
who would gladly execute you.
