I'm a believer and lawyer in [State] and am currently investigating the CLA and David Gibbs Jr & III for my own reasons. . I am seeking information on the Gibbs father and son and would appreciate your help. I've never been IFB but know some abused ex-IFB and saw the 20/20 report. I'd like to talk sometime.

No problem, l. I have alot of incriminating info on CLA, the gibbs law firm and both Gibbs Sr. and Jr from almost 2 years of research on them and many testimonials that have trickeled in.
Let me know what specifically you want to know,
Thank you. Well, I am interested in hard facts. Connecting testimonials to outside evidence. Court cases, if there are any, would be very helpful. IRS forms showing their income or assets, or where to look. I am a lawyer and I have been requested to give advice on Gibbs credibility to an organization that I am affiliated with who might use Gibbs. I am very familiar with similar CLA organizations like ACLJ under Jay Sekulow and his/its corruption. If these guys are half as good as you say they are, and others like them are, they will have covered their tracks well enough that people who are not in the IFB won't easily find. I only know of the IFB through a friend who was hurt through them in Michigan. I don't run in those circles and despite knowing most religious freedom organizations, had never heard of CLA.
I am a lawyer and I can't act on testimonials alone. In my research so far, it keeps coming back to you and your sites. I understand many in the IFB are probably unwilling to speak out, much like many who voiced concerns in the Catholic Church awhile back were ignored or hid in fear for awhile. But, if that is all I have, then I could easily be accused of believing just one man. As you know, their credibility, whether they deserve it or not, will not be brought down that easily. I have to have some confirmations and hard data to act. What kind of stuff do you have? I am having a hard time finding it. Tax forms that show their income would be ideal. Court documents or cases (at least parties that might at least pull up news articles). From what I've seen, CLA and the Gibbses are regular IFB fixtures, but that doesn't prove in of itself (to the rest of the world) that they are linked to covering up/defending child and sexual abuse issues. Plus, lawyers frequently defend people who are unsavory, so many won't easily be convinced. I heard the youtube phone call of you calling into CLA, nice job by the way. That is not right behavior, but I'm trying to get that extra step. If they are present and frequently helping a dozen churches or IFB reform schools that happen to have abuse suits, that might be something. My organization does some anti-child abuse advocacy and would not want to be connected to lawyers defending or covering it up.
Now, if I can get sufficient information and data, I might be able to pass it along to a more public audience. A legal paper did a huge article that slammed the American Center for Law and Justice and the hundreds of thousands of dollars its leader was making (he was paid over $600,000/year, his wife over $100,000/year and was the 13th highest paid non-profit leader with an annual budget of $15 million, the same salary as the United Way CEO with a $3 billion budget). It significantly damaged the ACLJ's public credibility and allowed more honest organizations to shine. Maybe they will be interested in another expose if the evidence is truthful and there and someone delivers it to them.
I am happy to provide you information if you can provide me with some evidence that you in fact are an attorney. A firm phone number or email address would work.
The IFB hired a Private Eye firm out of Wisconsin that has been harassing me and threatening me for over a year.
They contacted me impersonating a number of people... a reporter from USA today, an IFB 'Pastor' that wanted to help me, a book publisher, etc. I received numerous death threats and they basically were just poking around for information.
They even threatened me because 20 years ago someone filed a restraining order against me (that was dismissed in less than 2 weeks) and tried to use that as a 'skeletons in the closet' extorsion attempt against me.
So I just want to make sure you are actually an attorney and not representing them.
Besides many testimonials from many people about the CLA and The Gibbs's and their law firm, I've researched everything I could find on public records, the litigation they have been engaged in over the past 40 years, what the CLA has financed in legal fees to protect the IFB cult leaders, much came from people that were in those 'Christian' boarding homes dealing with abuse, torture, rape, etc as well as scandals of improprieties that have broken out in various IFB churches that Gibbs runs to defend the status quo with CLA funds...yet they never represent any of the people that donate to that law firm..they only defend the IFB Cult leaders.
Anyway, I don't know if you have any info yourself, maybe we can do a trade. I've filed grievances with the State Bars in California and Florida against both Gibbs and CLA but no clue if that ever went anywhere.
I am doing this much more out of principle. I donated over $1000 to CLA-thinking that they would be there for me if i ever needed legal advice- and when i went to them regarding 2 'leaders' in my church...an associate and an assistant pastor committing adultery, teaching clear heresy and engaging in criminal acts I was thrown out of my church the very next day by one of the persons that I called the CLA to ask legal advice on...so they have no Attorney Client Privilege...then of course they investigated me and came up with a 20 year old restraining order dismissed 20 years ago and they used that as an extorsion tool to try to keep me quiet after they threw me out of my own church.
People have told me that Gibbs Sr wears a masonic ring and that he hosts alot of his talks around the country at masonic lodges. People close to him including former employees and associates of him have told me many other things.
One thing is for certain though, it is absolutely clear to me that he is engaged in criminal if not extremely unethical activities collecting money from ordinary Christians -under false pretenses of being there to help them- and only defending and covering up the crimes of the IFB cult leaders and completely mocking the attorney client privilege.
Anyway, I look forward to your response.
BOYCOTT PEDOPHILE DEFENDER DAVID GIBBS OF THE 'CHRISTIAN LAW ASSOCIATION'
ATTORNEY DAVID GIBBS IS A MOBSTER AND A MONSTER WHO STEALS MONEY FROM CHRISTIANS THROUGH THE 'CHRISTIAN LAW ASSOCIATION' TO PROTECT IFB CULT LEADERS AND PEDOPHILES IN THE MINISTRY AND TO COVER UP THE CRIMES OF THE FUNDAMENTAL BAPTIST CULT.
THERE IS NO ATTORNEY CLIENT PRIVILEGE WITH DAVID GIBBS...ANYTHING YOU TELL THEIR LAW FIRM THEY CAN AND WILL USE AGAINST YOU IN A COURT OF LAW AND AS AN EXTORSION PLOY.
MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT DAVID GIBBS IS A RUTHLESS CON MAN AND A CRIMINAL DISGUISED AS A 'CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY' STEALING FROM UNSUSPECTING CHRISTIANS AND HE IS FILTHY RICH BILLING MONEY THROUGH THE 'CLA' AT $300 DOLLARS AN HOUR.
I WILL BE MAKING A POST LISTING ALL THE PEDOPHILES DAVID GIBBS HAS DEFENDED...YOU WILL BE SHOCKED TO KNOW WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES!! ONCE IN A WHILE HE WILL DO AN 'ACLU' TYPE CIVIL LIBERTIES CASE JUST TO DECEIVE YOU AND PUT UP SMOKE AND MIRRORS, BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT HE IS A RUTHLESS CON MAN!
We applaud ABC 20/20 for bringing the IFB Cult (fundamental baptist cult) sexual abuse to light, they barely scratched the tip of the iceberg of what really goes on in these 'funny mental' baptist cults.
Many tactics are used to control you such as: character assasination, using counseling as a 'confessional' they turn against you, no privileged communication when you tell them personal things, excommunicated if you ever speak up, only those who blindly obey get any positions of authority, the minute you question the 'system' you are thrown out and character assasinated if you ever try to speak up.
They always have a squeaky clean 'front man' in the puplit teaching generic non controversial messages, much of the extreme indoctrination and initiation happens in smaller groups or one on one or during door knocking or other church activities.
Sexual abuse is more rampant in IFB cults than in Catholic churches. There is absolutely no accountability for the leadership in IFB Cults, they do whatever they like and when sued they sick their corrupt lawyer David Gibbs of the Christian Law Association -who with the money he steals from Christians in the pew- represents all the pedophiles, child abusers and corrupt pastors in the pulpit and covers up all the wrongdoings of this establishment.
Some CLA Facts:
1. The Gibbs Family has proffitted immensly from the donations directed towards the CLA
2. The CLA keeps a warehouse that stores the Gibbs familys toys such as motorcoaches, boats, and sports cars
3. David Gibbs III lives in a house on Madiera Beach Florida. Waterfront property and elevator included.
4. CLA has no actual employees. Its legal services are farmed out to one law firm, The Gibbs law firm. Every hour billed by a Gibbs Law firm attorney is billed to the CLA This is how money is taken from the donations and put into the families hands directly. This is legal but extremely unethical.
5. Much like his friend Jay Sekulow David Gibbs tells people he is working on cases that he is not. Sometimes he flys to court cases and sits as an observer in the court room so he can say he was helping in the court room. I am not saying that his prayers were not helping its just not legal help
6. David Gibbs makes up many of the amazing things that happen to him.
7. If he needs something from you David Gibbs is the nicest person you will every meet. Good luck if he doesn't. By the way he needs people to call and get advice. Its how Gibbs Law Firm bills the CLA. Your call will be free, pleasant, and allow him to get his fingers on those donations.
8. I hope none of you donate to this shame. If you do I have to admit there are some people who get helped. Every lie has some truth. When a Con artist helps an old ladie across the street she makes it there safely. He is just doing it to convince you he is a good guy. Good luck to you if you trust him.

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that brings not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Why by their fruits you shall know them.
