Daystar Television Network announced Tuesday night (June 18) that all of Robert Morris‘ programming has been removed from its broadcasting schedule.

Morris resigned as pastor of Gateway Church on Tuesday, days after Cindy Clemishire came forward to allege that Morris sexually abused her from 1982 to 1987. She alleges that the abuse began when she was 12 years old.

“We are deeply grieved and saddened by the recent and very serious allegations against Pastor Robert Morris involving the sexual abuse of a 12-year-old minor,” Daystar said. “In light of these events and a recently released statement by Gateway’s Elders, Daystar’s leadership has made the decision to remove all of Pastor Robert Morris’ programming from our broadcasting schedule.”

“Daystar unequivocally condemns the actions described in these allegations and remains committed to upholding Biblical values as outlined in the Word of God,” the statement continued.

“As we navigate through this challenging situation, we extend our heartfelt support and prayers to all those impacted,” the statement concluded.

According to Daystar’s website, the television network “is an award winning, faith-based network dedicated to spreading the Gospel 24 hours a day, seven days a week—all around the globe, through all media formats possible” and is in “over 2.2 billion homes worldwide,” reaching “over 6.5 billion people.”

Last Friday (June 15), Clemishire released her testimony through The Wartburg Watch, detailing the sexual abuse she allegedly endured from Morris while she was a minor. Morris was in his 20s at the time, married, and a father.

Clemishire said that after she made her abuse known in 1987, it wasn’t brought to the authorities. Instead, Morris’ abuse was dealt with by his then-church, Shady Grove Church in Grand Prairie, Texas, where Morris was on staff as a pastor at the time.

Clemishire’s father “demanded that Morris get out of ministry,” or he’d report him to the local sheriff’s department. So Morris stepped away from ministry for two years.

Morris said that he received counseling and returned to ministry “with the full blessing of the elders and her father.” But Clemishire shared a different story, telling The Christian Post that her “father never ever gave his blessing on Robert returning to ministry! My father told him he’s lucky he didn’t kill him.”
