Dorn describes feeling “a righteous anger come over me, and also just a boldness by the Holy Spirit” to confront the bikini-wearers, speaking “truth that, hey, what you’re wearing is not okay for a 9-year-old boy or a 6-year-old boy [to see].” He adds that “being introduced to pornography at a young age…destroyed me,” so he wants to “defend and protect young eyes.”
Dorn, who blames pornography, lust, alcohol, and drugs for “a downcline [sic] of morality” in society, says he has “nothing to apologize for.” Instead, he tells viewers and commenters, “I’m sorry you guys feel the need to come on my page and try to humiliate me and berate me and make me look bad.” Dorn has disabled comments from his videos.
Incident Results in Logan Dorn’s Firing
On Thursday, Dorn’s employer revealed it has terminated him. In a Facebook post, Mighty Hand Construction explains: “Information was brought to our attention that one of our employees, Logan Dorn, was accused of harassing a group of individuals over the weekend in Northern Colorado. We began an investigation…which has resulted in the immediate termination of Mr. Dorn.”
The company says Dorn’s “behavior in the videos” doesn’t “reflect our values as a company, because it “strives to be a place of business where all are treated with utmost respect and acceptance.”
In his rebuttal videos, Dorn doesn’t address his loss of employment, but he describes being lied about online. He denies various accusations, including harassing the women at the beach. And he expresses confidence that “even though I don’t need to clear my name, God will vindicate me.”
“If this is my calling and…with that comes persecution, then let it be,” says Dorn. He pledges to “continue to speak truth,” saying that “Jesus is worthy” of any “humiliation and losing my reputation” that results.
Was Dorn Justified or Out of Line?
Most comments posted to Mia’s video skew in the women’s favor. Many people note that the sunbathers were on a beach and not breaking any rules. Some commenters say Dorn “has the right to his opinion,” while others emphasize that freedoms extend to the women as well.
Mia posted a photo of the group in their swimsuits that day, explaining that the bikinis were “really normal” and not “thong style,” but “even if they were, it would not matter.” Many people were wearing similar bathing suits that day, she says. “It was a public beach.”
