Last week, Parsley denied any wrongdoing and defended his Center of Moral Clarity and Reformation Ohio groups, calling those that filed the complaint the Anonymous 31.
Wednesday, they said their intention was never to be anonymous. Their names were signed on the complaint to the IRS and a matter of public record. They just wanted to make their concerns known.
Reverend Kim Keethler Ball with the American Baptist Churches says, "I knew when I put my pen to paper, appearing anonymous was not my concern. When I told my congregation on Sunday, there was a round of spontaneous applause."
