A Colorado construction company that touts itself for its Christian values fired an employee after he was accused of telling bikini-clad teenage girls that their bodies were ‘pornography.’
In a Facebook post, Mighty Hand Construction announced they ‘immediately terminated’ Logan Dorn after investigating the harassment charges.
The claims came after a group of teenagers filmed the moment he approached them at a public beach at a Colorado lake to lecture them about their swimsuits and compare their bikinis to ‘pornography’ — all while they repeatedly asked him to leave them alone.
Logan Dorn, who harassed a group of teenage girls on a Colorado beach, was fired from his job at Might Hand Construction, a Christian organization
Dorn (pictured with his fiancée Mariah) was fired for violating the companies values of faith, respect, integrity, and truth. Dorn has claimed people have accused him of being an ‘abusive father’ since the video went viral, but he claimed he doesn’t have children and is in a loving relationship with his fiancée
Dorn defended his outburst and said he harangued the teens out of ‘righteous anger’ and a ‘boldness by the Holy Spirit to confront’ them.
After finding Dorn’s behavior violated their company values of faith, respect, integrity, and truth, they fired him.
‘Mighty Hand Construction does not condone Logan’s behavior in the videos, nor do his actions reflect our values as a company,’ the Fort Collins company wrote.
‘Mighty Hand strives to be a place of business where all are treated with utmost respect and acceptance, and actions by our employees which go against those values will not be tolerated.’
A group of teenagers filmed the moment that a strange man approached them at the beach to lecture them about their swimsuits and compare their bikinis to ‘pornography’
One of the eight girls, an 18-year-old identified only as Mia, captured the encounter at the Fort Collins lake and posted it to her TikTok account.
The girls said they never met Dorn before the encounter before he accused them of ‘flaunting’ it and told them to cover up.
‘Take young eyes into consideration. They don’t need to see pornography right in front of them. You’re flaunting your stuff,’ he told them.
Since the video went viral, Logan has been accused of harassing the young women with a misogynistic tirade — but the older man is digging his heels in, admitting that ‘a righteous anger’ came over him and he won’t apologize for confronting the teens.
What they wore: The nine women wore bikinis to a public beach in Fort Collins, Colorado (one is taking the photo)
Mia started filming once Logan had already approached her and her friends, who were laying out on towels in bikinis.
She later noted that while they are all 18, Logan didn’t know that — and as far as he was aware, he could have been approaching a group of minors to lecture them about their bodies.
As the first clip begins, Logan can be heard asking: ‘Why do you dress that way?’
Not wanting to engage the ranting roofer, one of the young women replies: ‘Please leave us alone. Kindly.’
‘That’s a thong and that’s a bra,’ he tells her.
‘Please go away… don’t look at me,’ one of the women replies.
‘You look around and you’re the only thing that sticks out,’ he answers.
Logan continues to argue, telling the women that ‘there’s free will in America, there’s freedom of speech’ — though he doesn’t seem concerned with their freedom to wear bikinis on a public beach.
Other people’s business: Logan tells them they should consider children when getting dressed and implies that God will judge them harshly
Whatever: The women are clearly put off by his lecture, in turn laughing at him and telling him to go away
‘If men of God don’t stand up, then our society’s gonna go down the drain because there’s no morality,’ he says.
The women laugh at him and tell him to go away.
One referenced a bible verse that reads, in full: ‘And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you.’
He continues to preach to them, however, as the young women laugh and repeatedly ask him to leave them alone.
Another woman, dressed in a T-shirt and shorts, and a little girl in a one-piece swimsuit stand nearby.
‘There’s gonna come a day when you’re gonna come face to face with God,’ he says.
Finally, after some back and forth, a woman in his party helps him away, but turns to lecture the young women herself.
She insists Logan is ‘not judging’ the women in bikinis, but wants them to think about what they wear to the beach.
‘If men of God don’t stand up, then our society’s gonna go down the drain because there’s no morality,’ he says
Modesty police: A woman in his party lectures the young women too. She insists is ‘not judging’ the women in bikinis, but wants them to think about what they wear to the beach
‘It does matter what you guys wear, not because of what he says, but because you need to value yourself,’ she says.
The videos have quickly gone viral, with the first racking up 1.5 million views.
Commenters have cheered on the young women, who have since posted a follow-up commenting on his actions.
They pointed out that they were on a public beach and that there were other women wearing similar bikinis — but they were the only all-female group, which they think made then an easy target for the man.
They also noted that he didn’t seem at all concerned with a man wearing a Speedo nearby.
‘We should have thrown sand at him! I’m so sorry. We didn’t think about it,’ one of the young women, Maddie, said in response to commenters who’d suggested they do so.
‘The fragile masculinity, off the charts,’ said Mia (left) in a follow-up video
‘The fragile masculinity, off the charts,’ added Mia.
Logan has posted his own video sharing ‘his side’ of the story, which ultimately came down to him defending the actions seen in the video as a ‘righteous act to defend young eyes.’
‘My side of the story is, I was at a reservoir or a lake and I was with family members, all different ages, from my age to college age, all the way down to…a two-year-old girl,’ he said.
At one point, someone in his family said they wanted to move because there were ‘college-aged women showing too much’ nearby.
‘Right then and there, I felt just a righteous anger come over me, and also just a boldness by the Holy Spirit just to go and confront these ladies and to speak to truth that, hey what you’re wearing is not OK for a nine-year-old boy or a six-year-old boy,’ he said.
‘Being introduced to pornography at a young age, it destroyed me and I [had] in that moment just a righteous anger to defend and protect young eyes,’ he went on.
Follow his rules! Logan has posted his own video sharing ‘his side’ of the story, which ultimately came down to him defending the actions seen in the video as righteous
‘I just started to speak truth that hey, what you’re wearing is not OK, that you can’t find your worth in your body, that the physical never satisfies, that there’s gonna come a day when you’re face to face with God… you know, things of that nature.
‘I’m not gonna apologize, I’m gonna continue to stand on the truth, I’m gonna continue to stand on the word of God,’ he said.
‘Our society is on such a downcline [sic] of morality, pornography and lust is at an all time high,’ he added.
In his follow-up video, he also clears the air about other allegations against him, including having his own kids and being an abusive father.
Dorn said he does not have an children, but does have a loving relationship with his fiancée Mariah and that their relationship is ‘founded on the truth’ and ‘on Jesus.’
Logan has turned comments off on his video, though Mia’s videos have been flooded with support for the young women.
In a second follow-up video, Dorn apologized for his haters. He said: ‘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.’
He went on to talk about Jesus and the ‘hope of the world,’ which follows the trend of his religious page.
