The conservative Christian organization from which founder Bill Gothard resigned four months ago amid allegations of sexual harassment revealed in a contested statement that it has found no criminal activity but will maintain its ban against Gothard’s participation in the nonprofit. Gothard, meanwhile, insists his “intent was never to harass” alleged victims.
A statement written by the board of the Institute in Basic Life Principles, an education-oriented nonprofit that promotes “God’s principles found in Scripture,” reveals:
“In response to allegations against Bill Gothard, the board sought the facts through a confidential and thorough review process conducted by outside legal counsel. Many people were interviewed, including former board members, current and past staff members, current and past administrators, parents, and family members.
