Worthy Christian News » US News » Bergdahl's Parents 'Really Hurt' by Outcry


WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)– The former pastor of the Bob and Jani Bergdahl, parents of recently released Pvt. Bowe Bergdahl after almost five years of captivity, say they have been hurt by claims that he was a traitor and by the outpouring of anger toward their family, AP reported.

"They have been really hurt," said Pastor Phil Proctor of Sterling Presbyterian Church in Sterling, Virginia.

Proctor said he was the family's pastor in 2003 in Boise and through the years has remained close with them.

"This very much hit them as a shock and I'm not sure anybody's got the full story,"  Proctor told AP.  He is urging prayer and compassion for the family.

As far as Proctor knows, the Bergdahl's, who currently live in Idaho, have yet to speak with their son who is recovering at a military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany.

    Somehow I'm not believing they have a Presbyterian Pastor when dad is praising Allah and spoke of helping all terrorists to be released.

    Are they really Christian? They seem a bit confused (about a lot of things).

    Does this mean we're all now "traitorophobic"?

    He truth always hurts. That a supposedly "Christian" family would turn their backs on The Lord that died for them, to join a pagan cult is astounding. Their son is a traitor who got good men killed looking for his traitorous self. Shame on them all.

      They haven't converted to Islam stupid. The father was just trying to understand his son's captors, as a father he was doing everything he could think of. You may not like it, but if it helped the father, then it helped.
