(Pulpit & Pen) We originally highlighted this story in a post on July 11. However, we then had to update the post on July 13, after Howse filed a copyright claim against Justin’s response video (in a stunningly hypocritical move, considering Brannon used a snippet of a recording that he did not own, also under the Fair Use Doctrine). In the update, we included the video, linked elsewhere besides YouTube, where Howse had it removed under his false complaint.
In the meantime, Howse’s attempted defense of his indefensible actions are not merely misconstrued or from a different vantage point. These discrepancies cannot be cleared up by misunderstanding. Howse is lying, and there’s no other way to put it.
First, Peters did not speak publicly in his seminars against Jeremiah, and the burden of proof would be on Howse to prove it. This should be easy enough, considering Peters’ seminars are mostly all recorded and made available.
Secondly, Peters began contacting Jeremiah before he ever met Brannon Howse, and so the claim that it was Brannon that encouraged Peters to contact him privately is objectively false. This particular statement from Howse – that he encouraged Peters to contact Jeremiah privately – literally made me laugh out loud (and I’m not known for my levity). In my hundreds of hours of phone calls with Brannon Howse, discussing this very type of thing, I’ve never known Howse to ever caution me to speak to a public person personally before criticizing them or ever – and I mean ever – take ethics into consideration.
Third, I am personally privy to much of what has transpired between Peters and Howse (even from the personal perspective of Howse, having communicated with him about this matter during this time period) and can substantiate that Howse is simply not telling the truth. He has repeatedly lashed out at Peters for the last year, while Peters has remained stoically silent. Only after these repeated falsehoods has Peters decided to respond.
