Chinese dissident-evangelist accused of sexual misconduct

 (RNS) After applying for an internship with the China Soul for Christ Foundation, a 23-year-old university student found herself in a Paris hotel bed with the foundation’s famous founder, Yuan Zhiming, according to a new independent investigation.

The unnamed woman’s story is laid out in the investigation by GRACE (Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment), a Virginia-based nonprofit founded by one of Billy Graham’s grandsons, Boz Tchividjian.

The student said she had two encounters with Yuan in September 2013.

“He started saying that he was lonely and that he needed to have company,” she said.

The woman stayed with him part of the first night as they watched a soft-porn feature film. The next evening, she refused his request and left.

Yuan is recognized as one of the leading preachers and theologians for the global Chinese Christian community, which has at least 70 million Christians in China and more overseas.

The GRACE report highlights the chronic difficulty of Chinese churches, many of which are independent, in holding their pastoral leaders accountable.

“Rev. Yuan and (China Soul) stand on the threshold of a unique opportunity that could allow them to be a powerful example of authentic Christian repentance to those inside and outside of the Chinese community,” the report says.

The GRACE report said the woman’s account was credible because five individuals corroborated her narrative during interviews with a professional investigator in Paris.

Yuan, through his attorney, denied any wrongdoing with the student.

During the past year, Yuan has been on sabbatical after being accused of raping an acquaintance, Chai Ling, in 1990. Yuan said he was guilty of “sexual iniquity,” but not rape, when the two met in Chai’s apartment.

Both Yuan and Chai were dissidents during the 1989 Tiananmen Square democracy protests and later converted to Christianity after fleeing to the United States.

A leading filmmaker in the 1980s, Yuan became a Christian after arriving the U.S. He produced the renowned four-hour documentary “The Cross: Jesus in China.”

In recent months, Yuan has returned to international ministry, causing deep concern among leaders in the Chinese church.

“I found Yuan’s pattern disgustingly similar,” Chai said, referring to her experience with Yuan in 1990. “He identifies an innocent and trusting young woman, isolating her into a one-on-one situation, in the name of discussing the movement, or job, or religion or spiritual matter. He surprises his targets with a premeditated pornographic or sexual explicit video; while they were in shock, he strikes.”

Jackson Wu, a leading theologian, church planter and author, reviewed the report and said many Christians will criticize the college student for being naïve. “Those criticisms, however, overlook a key value in Chinese culture — respect for authority,” he said.

“Let’s not forget also that Yuan held the power to grant her an internship.”

獨立調查指遠志明性失德
受害人為廿三歲女大學生
(7月21日消息)

【時代論壇訊】神州傳播協會創辦人遠志明牧師兩年前被前學運領袖柴玲於網上公開指控對她性侵犯,最近,美國一項獨立調查報告指,一名廿三歲的女大學生在神州傳播協會實習期間,發現自己與該會創辦人遠志明牧師同睡巴黎旅館的床上看軟性色情電影。遠志明已通過他的律師,否認與該名學生有任何不當行為。

這名不願透露姓名的女大學生在美國組織GRACE(Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment)的調查下披露事件。她表示,她在二○一三年九月曾跟遠志明兩次見面。第一晚在酒店會面時,遠志明建議和女大學生躺在床上看電影,遠志明叫她鑽進被子裡,並告訴她,「最好蓋上被子,可以暖和一些。」電影結束以後,女大學生離開酒店。

第二晚在酒店會面時,遠志明說他感到非常孤獨,需要人陪伴他。女大學生說她必須離開,遠志明要求她在離開之前給他一個擁抱作為道別。女大學生以為那僅是個「一般性的擁抱」,就接受了他的建議,但是,當遠志明擁抱她的時候,她回憶說:「他很緊地抱著我,並且不放開我。」遠志明擁抱她的時候,是用他身體的正面貼著她身體的正面,時間大約長達一分鐘。「……他擁抱我的時候有某種生理反應。」女大學生解釋說,他身體的正部貼著她身體的正部,「他變得很硬。」女大學生說,「他擁抱我的時候,再次要求我留下不要走,我說,『不,不,不!』」最後,女大學生開始掙扎,使大勁想要推開他。最後遠志明停止了對女大學生的緊抱。女大學生立即準備離開房間,但當女大學生正要離開時,遠牧師給了她五十歐元。她試圖把錢還給他,他卻不斷堅持要她拿著。女大學生補充說,這一舉動「很奇怪」、「令人尷尬」。遠志明陪她走了出去,來到賓館前的公交車站,然後她離開了。

報告認為,該女大學生的供詞可信,因為在巴黎有五名個別人士也向調查員證實了她的故事。

遠志明和柴玲均是一九八九年天安門民主抗議中的異見人士,後來逃亡到美國並改信基督教。遠志明是二十世紀八十年代的著名導演,到了美國後成為基督徒,製作了廣受讚譽的四小時紀錄片《十字架———耶穌在中國》。近幾月,遠志明又再次投入國際事奉,引起了中國教會領袖的深切關注。

柴玲指遠志明在一九九○年對她也有類似的行為模式,「他找一個天真和信任他的年輕女子,假借討論民運、工作、宗教或靈性問題為由,把她隔離至一個單獨相處的情況。他以預先策劃(播放)淫穢或色情影片令侵犯目標大吃一驚;在對方仍然驚訝之時,他就出手。」

著名神學家、植堂人和作者吳振生(Jackson Wu)審查了該份報告,並表示許多基督徒會批評該大學生太天真,「不過,那些批評卻忽略了中國文化中的一項重要的價值取向——尊重權威……我們切勿忘記遠志明還擁有決定給她實習機會的權力。」

GRACE總部設於維珍尼亞州,由佈道家葛培理一名孫兒卓域平恩(Boz Tchividjian)創立。
