Thanks to anon for pointing me to this article in today's Washington Post, which reports that Shiloh members filed a lawsuit yesterday seeking to remove their pastor, the Rev. Wallace Charles Smith.
Interestingly, the article quotes Smith as saying "The New Testament prohibits Christians from taking other Christians before secular magistrates . . . Bible-believing Christians know and understand this. Our attorneys are reviewing this suit, and we will not comment further until we meet with our legal counsel." I have serious doubts about his understanding of the New Testament if he thinks that it forbids Christians from ever utilizing the court system to hold other Christians accountable. While I think the dissident group is probably not a neighborhood-enhanging sect (seeing as Sammie Ellis is associated with it), Smith's apparent use of the Bible to condemn actions against him which are rooted in accountability makes me think that maybe he does have something to hide.
