I am no Steven Anderson fan, but I would not want to him right now.

Will this remove him from being the de facto leader of the KJVO movement?

No, he's still entitled to two more wives.
Actually I don't think there is a limit in the Rucky circles. It's none of your business. You should just assume it's the wife's fault unless the pastor directly tells you otherwise.

I don't usually take time to listen to all the interminable hour-long audios and videos that are posted here, but I did listen to this one. It is almost entirely a secret recording of a sermon by Stevo telling his side of the story. He admits the conduct of the boys was wicked, but he maintains that they did not actually commit the immoral acts they bragged about on social media - supposedly they talked about it but didn't do it. He says those who expose this stuff are "blowing it all out of proportion" in order to hurt his ministry. Stevo's position is that IFB pastors who commit immorality should be publicly exposed so that they will not be able to move on and do it again elsewhere, but this principle should not apply to teen-age boys who have no influence - he emphasizes the need to forgive and forget. I welcome further comments from anyone else who listened to the audio.

Too bad that in at least some IFB churches, there is no forgiveness or forgetfulness for lay people who have lived good moral lives but were thrown under the bus for disobeying or disagreeing with the pastor. That kind of offense is never forgiven or forgotten. But hey, it's good to know that Stevo's potty-brain kids are forgiven.

I just read bits an pieces but I think one of his kids involved in this (maybe the 18 yo) was preaching at various churches around the same time these online conversations were taking place.

Steve Anderson sounds just like Kyle's Dad on South Park. Wouldn't be surprised if he does the voice but I digress.
