That's the full text of the lawsuit that admitted sign-stealer and disgraceful Rockingham County Board of Education member Ron Price has filed against Richard and Debbie Moore. And as was revealed here a few weeks ago, I was expecting to be called in for deposition in the suit by Price.

Indeed, a short while ago a Rockingham County Sheriff's Department deputy came to my door and served me with this summons...

So I'm supposed to show up at the Eden law office of attorney Douglas R. Hux (note: I have no idea of what Douglas Hux looks like so for right now I'm using this depiction of attorney Lionel Hutz from The Simpsons) next Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m. And testify, or something, in Ron Price's lawsuit against the Moores.

I don't mind saying this out loud and for everyone to hear, that this entire thing is so much steaming ca-ca.

Ladies and gentlemen, Ronald Filer Price is not a good Christian man. I don't care what some people say about how much money he's donated to causes, or whatever. Real followers of Christ do not steal things. Real followers of Christ certainly do not steal things for political advantage. If they do, real followers of Christ at least express earnest and sincere remorse about their actions and do their darndest to make amends and restitution. Real followers of Christ do not file lawsuits against people who call them out for their sins.

Ron, you have absolutely no comprehension at all of 1st Corinthians, chapter 6. For sake of your own pride, you are destroying whatever witness for Christ you have claimed to have.

Ron Price, a lot of people have told me that they think of you as a spiritually vacuous man. And not a true Christian at all. How is this helping to prove otherwise?

Is your madness really worth destroying the example that you are setting, not only as a school board member but as a professing believer?

Because if it is, then I will have no problem at all with putting that down on the record when I testify at your lawyer's office next week.

I still can't believe that any lawyer actually took Ron Price's case. Where the heck did Doug Hux get his bar certificate from... Woolworth's?

Well anyway, in honor of this turn of events, here is the music video for "Weird Al" Yankovic's song "I'll Sue Ya", from the Straight Outta Lynwood album...

I'll Sue Ya

It would be great if someone posted a response to those 30'something points. So that we can see the other side of the story. Obviously Ron thinks he's been wronged but it's also obvious that Chris and the Millers think they're right. I'd really like to know if the sign theft charges were bogus and dropped, etc....

KingThorin, so far as the sign charges being bogus goes, Ron Price admitted on live television (on the night of the election) and then on his blog that he had stolen the signs.

It wasn't long after he posted his admission on his blog, that he then "scrubbed" the statement. But I was able to capture it and paste it verbatim (along with date stamp) on my own blog right here.

I think you've arrived a bit late to the party.

Who are the Millers?

I guess you could also say real Christians don't harass people for months end, aren't sore losers, and forgive past wrongs. I'm no authority on "real" Christians and you aren't either ... we leave that to a higher power. I'm no fan of Price but your constant self-righteous attention seeking is also rather distasteful.

My name is Bettie Bowers and I'm a better Christian than all of you.

I'm an authority on real Christians. All of you are posers.

Chris is a poser. Ron is a poser. The Millers are posers.

The biggest poser is anonymous #3.

1. By "Millers", KingThorin certainly means the Moores, since they are the ones getting sued.

2. To Anonymous #2 above: Have you ever heard something about how he who can be trusted with little, can be trusted with much? Conversely, he who cannot be trusted with little, cannot be trusted with much at all.

I was a Ron Price supporter. I encouraged *many* people to vote for Price. Because I did believe that he was an honest man. And then he turned out to be dishonest.

How could I *not* do something, when it was revealed that he was not only a thief but a recalcitrant one also?

To forgive someone, that person must be TRULY repentant. Ron Price has never been repentant. If he had been, he would have given up his seat and let someone else take it. He would have committed the greater good by setting the example to the students of Rockingham County that a person must hold himself or herself accountable for what he has done.

By the way, if Price had vacated his seat, it would NOT be filled by me. It would not have been Richard Moore either, more than likely. I had no intention of seeking a school board seat in any way other than standard election.

For that reason and a few others, the "sore loser" claim is a laughable one.

And so far as the "attention seeking" goes: I'm just a guy with a blog. Who hasn't been afraid to put his name on what he believes. If I and many other people had stayed silent over the past several months, there's no telling what damage Ron Price could have done.

So are we supposed to remain quiet just because Price was "elected", as he boasted about a few nights after the election last year? And do nothing? It used to be that Americans were made of sterner stuff and weren't afraid to hold their officials accountable.

By the way, I know who you are.

1) yes I'm late to the party. I've only been reading Chris' BLOG since the YouTube incident. So I've seen some references to the sign theft but only the more recent stuff.

2) Yes I said Millers but I meant Moores. Sorry about that!
