When You Catch A Liar Lying

Sunday, an anonymous source e-mailed the identity of "Gryphen" to Dan Riehl and I. In ensuing days, the same source has also sent along quotes (with screen-capture JPEGs) from Jesse Griffin's Immoral Minority blog.

Griffin is not only a liar, but an extremely stupid liar, who arrogantly believed that no one else could ever possibly be smart enough to discover his "Gryphen" deception. For three days now, Griffin piled up lie upon lie in an effort to explain that deception. And all the time, there were those quotes the source had sent:

STRONG LANGUAGE WARNING: Please note that the juxtaposition of quotes at that post is intended to highlight the vast difference between (a) what he wrote when he thought his anonymity was secure, and (b) what he wrote once his deception was exposed, and it was learned he was "an assistant teacher in a room full of five year old children."
An interesting development discovered while compiling that post: At some point since Monday, Jesse Griffin changed the banner motto at Immoral Minority from this:

"What is morality? Who decides? Are we in charge of our own destiny? What is right? And what is wrong? Are these questions which can be answered? You betcha."
To this:

"Morality is not determined by the church you attend nor the faith you embrace. It is determined by the quality of your character and the positive impact you have on those you meet along your journey."
Question: Why the change? Why now?
Answer: The first quote was a blunt statement of moral relativism, in which each individual decides, without reference to any enduring and acknowledged standard, what is right or wrong.

Or, as the serpent said: "Ye shall be as gods!"

Remember that mysterious delay Monday? Last night someone found the answer to a question I'd been asking since Sunday night. Which is why I took some poetic advice Angela McGlowan's father taught her: I burned the midnight oil.

Previously, "Gryphen" had declared himself an atheist. He is, in fact, his own god. Let him save himself from the consequences of his own freely chosen actions. The banner motto at this blog, meanwhile, remains unchanged:
"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up."
-- Arthur Koestler
Hmmm. Didn't some commenter tell me to "STFU"?

As bloggers say, READ THE WHOLE THING and look for further updates at RIEHL WORLD VIEW.

Once more all readers are warned not to threaten anyone. LEAVE JESSE GRIFFIN ALONE!


  1. I was reading some posts over at "Mr. Creepy's" website and one of them went on and on about you. How you are married, have 6 kids, wife is a member of a church. Really juicy stuff, huh! It seems that these traits are "bad" with the people Mr. Creepy hangs out with. Just a warped group of people that for the moment has the spotlight shinning through their creepiness. By the way you are all reported! HA. As my dad always said "you have to laugh".

  2. Someone on Dan's blog noticed that Jesse Griffin is no longer listed with the staff.

    Has anyone spoken with the school principal Patrick Freeman? I'd love to hear what he has to say


  3. Sung to the tune of "Comin' thru the rye".
    With apologies to Bobbie Burns.

    when you catch a liar lying,
    everything is fine
    but when the liar is a teacher
    then his a$$ is thine.

    when they make up lies 'bout children
    then their job is moot
    so if they say they're really kidding
    just bring on the suit.

    If they talk about things nutty
    well that sure is their right
    but if they speak about things smutty
    Then it's time to fight.

  4. I think that Jesse might've had enough 'exorcise' for now? Maybe you two 'Cats' should quit batting him around for awhile and let him get his bearings back. (if he ever had any)

    Or not.

  5. "The first quote was a blunt statement of moral relativism, in which each individual decides, without reference to any enduring and acknowledged standard, what is right or wrong."

    Um, no. Not even close.
