Transcript 10 MONTROSE VOICE / APRIL 10, 1987 Church Group Reaches Decision on Bakker By Cathy Cash DUNN, N.C. (UPI)—Executives of the North Carolina Assemblies of God reached a decision on whether to expel fallen PTL founder Jim Bakker and his chief lieutenant or accept their resignations but declined to reveal the ruling. Bakker and new PTL President Richard Dortch chose not to appear at the secret meeting of the 16-member state board of the charismatic denomination. The meeting began under a secrecy "mandate" Tuesday and did not end until 2 a.m. Wednesday. The group said it reached a decision on whether to accept the resignations that Bakker and Dortch submitted March 19 or recommend they be drummed out of the church. A board spokesman said the decision would be sent to the national headquarters in Springfield, Mo. He said there would be no public anouncement. Bakker resigned from the denomination and the $172 million PTL television-entertainment ministry he founded after revealing he had a sexual encounter with a church secretary and paid her to hush up the affair. Dortch, who became PTL president after Bakker surrendered the ministry to Moral Majority founder Jerry Falwell, also resigned from the denomination. Dortch reportedly handled the negotiations to pay church secretary Jessica Hahn for not revealing her tryst with Bakker seven years ago. Dortch has refused to discuss the allegations with reporters. Charles Cookman, North Carolina district superintendent of the church, told reporters the board was "under a mandate (from church headquarters) not to divulge the results ofthe meeting today." "We have 90 days to act on the information we have," he said. "Once we have concluded our deliberations here in North Carolina, we send our decision to what we call the executive presbytery in Springfield, Mo. They then act on our recommendation." Bakker and Dortch were asked to appear before the board, but neither attended and Cookman said their decision in effect eliminated one of the three options available to church executives. Cookman said the board would consider only whether to accept Bakker's and Dortch's resignations orrejecttheir resignations and oustem from the ministry. A third option—that they undergo a two-year "restoration" process—was not considered since neither man requested it or indicated any desire to remain as Assemblies of God ministers. Bakker was ordained 23 years ago in the same church where Tuesday's meeting was held. Cookman, district superintendent for the last 21 years, was one of those present when Bakker was ordained. Bakker initially blamed his problems on a relentless investigation by The Charlotte Observer, but later said he quit to prevent a hostile takeover of his ministry and its Heritage USA resort at Fort Mill, S.C., by a rival minister subsequently identified as evangelist Jimmy Swaggart. New Wave Club Agrees to Fine DALLAS (UPI)—Managers of the Starck Club, a trendy New Wave bar stung by a drug raid last summer, have agreed to settle charges they condoned drug use by paying a $10,500 fine and banning dancing for two weeks. Owner Blake Woodall said Wednesday he agreed to the fine because it equaled the amount he would have paid in legal fees to defend the club from losing its liquor license. Dallas police raided the bar Aug. 7, arresting 36 people. After the raid, police complained to the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission that the club condoned drug use. "We deny these allegations. We say we did not have anything to do with drug use," Woodall said. But police said drug use at the club was so open, it was evident to anyone who entered. Woodall denied that by agreeing to pay a fine he was admitting guilt. He said the amount ofthe settlement was one-fourth of what the commission had originally asked. The settlement also includes a ban on dancing at the club for 15 days, from April 20 through May 4, at the request of Dallas police, which issues dance permits. Woodall called the ban "kind of interesting." "If you come into the club and dance in our visibility, we are going to take you outside. We are not going to keep you from dancing. We are going to ask you to leave," Woodall said. General Manager Greg McCone said the club has booked alternative forms of entertainment for the period covered by the dance ban. The night of the raid, 17 people were arrested for public intoxication, 15 for drug possession and four, including two employees, on warrants alleging the sale of drugs. Eleven others from whom police had allegedly bought drugs were later arrested on warrants.
