Uproar on ‘Sam and Nia’ Facebook page after Christian vlogger admits to Ashley Madison account

Viral Christian vlogger Sam Rader has posted a new video to he and his wife’s YouTube channel, acknowledging the revelations that in 2013 he had a paid subscription to the cheating website AshleyMadison.com.

In the video, Rader lets his viewers know that God has already forgiven him for his transgressions and that he and his wife have dealt with his past seeking of extramarital affairs.

“I did make the account. I made the account two years ago. This is an issue that is in our past. This is before I got onto YouTube. I brought this to my church at the time, when I first started at the church that I’m at now,” Rader said. “This has been brought to my discipleship partner. This was brought to my wife’s attention. She has forgiven me for this mistake that I made and opening the account. I’ve sought forgiveness to God, and he’s forgiven me.”

Looking supportive and unfazed, his wife Nia then chimed in:

“And I just want to add too, guys, you know, I have forgiven Sam and I stand behind him, and this is in our past,” she said.


The video, titled “FORGIVEN,” was posted to their Facebook fan page “Sam and Nia” this Friday, and although there’s a noteworthy air of cautious support from fans, there are droves of commenters descending to voice their disapproval:

The comment section of the “FORGIVEN” video was just as a brutal:
