Letter to My Readers (July 26, 2015)

To Our Many Readers, both in and out of Calvary,

     I do read your many emails to me, and thank you for your support and prayers to see my children restored to our family. Those of you inside Calvary who write asking for anonymity but express your horror and prayers to see this madness end, thank you. Those outside who continue to share that you are doing all you can down there in Virginia, by picketing, writing, and alerting others to avoid the church  at all costs, thank you also.
     Since being made aware of The Wartburg Watch, I have continued to follow their posts. I am encouraged to see that there are others out there in the church who realize how reckless church authority in the ministry has become. Unchecked, power in the hands of men and women who have lied about their past, without due diligence to ascertain the veracity of their verbal resumes on the part of deacons and elders, has allowed for the abuse of the most coveted merchandise in ministry today, youth. I am grateful for TWW exposing wickedness in the church, and giving hope and life back to those of us who have suffered cruelly at the hands of men without conscience. Men who would break the hearts of children and watch them weep for their mother, father, and sister and continue to tell them lies about their family and about God. And inferring the only way they can please God is to sacrifice their family.
     When I was first put away by my husband and the pastors, I knew it was wrong, but had never heard of such a thing happening anywhere before. I concluded it must the influence of (recently returned from Africa) Pastor Ron Zarou. So I called The Voice Of The Martyrs upon my return home (when my husband said I could return, and brought me back home). I explained what had been done to me, and asked if this was authentic christianity as practiced in more of the third world countries by underground churches, as I had been told at one point in a counseling session. (I had been very doubtful of that statement at the time, but hey, maybe I was wrong.) They expressed outrage and horror on the phone and said absolutely not, and to leave the church immediately as they would consider it a cult. They also said the only people who treat another person in that way, are unbelievers persecuting the believers. A true believer in Christ would never put away a mother from her children, or a wife from her husband. They were appalled at my story. I will never forget how angry they were at a church purporting to represent Christ in such a manner.
     So here is another very good article, outlining the abuse of children by leadership. And the misguided and harmful responses of christians to vilify the victims and endorse the abuser. Just read the Bible. A lot. God succors the victims, he hates sin, and he will deal strongly with those who hurt his children.


Letter to My Children (July 12, 2015)

Dear Jonathan, Sarah, Joshua and Christina,

     I am certain you have seen Mrs. Case and Danny at the protest across from church this morning. They were displaying the signs I painted this week with notes for you. When they said they were visiting DC, I asked if I could send notes along for you all. As when others visit the area, they drop off letters or stop to try and see and talk with you. Because we all love you. Why don't I come more, as I used to? Well, you know that all of 2012, I came each week, although not one of you ever spoke to me. And toward the end, you all refused to even open your doors when I knocked. Finally, calling the sheriff to come when I stopped by to see you. Even though I did nothing but cry and try to speak with you. Taylor said he would call the police if I came, and I know that Carly did call them to come once when I knocked on Jonathan's door and tried to speak to him. It broke me inside, I am not afraid, just so wounded. It was so evil, and I know that you children would never in a million years think of doing that, so it must have been the 'counsel' of the leadership at Calvary Temple. Just like they 'counseled' Christina to run away from home, jump out of a car at a stop sign, climb out of her window and take off on the 4 wheeler alone for hours without telling me. Endangering a minor child. Remember how your cousin Bradley, a policeman, gave Christina a talking to when we finally found her? He was shocked at such behavior. And how Dr. Joe Harvey told us that he could tell someone was coercing Christina to do these things, an adult/s, because a 15 year old was not wired to think this way. So I mostly write, call, text now. And pray.
     I was thinking about all the stories of very good and Christ-like women who have been 'put away' by Pastor Scott. Now it makes sense why the women are singled out, as the allegations of child abuse are surfacing, there is no one more vigilant over children than a momma. Remove the good mommas, then have the church leaders usurp the parental roles, denigrating the fathers and mothers responsibility to oversee their own children, sow division between the spouses, and you have the perfect scenario for children to be abused by authority figures, who claim to be representing God and His Word.
     Children, I love you. God will vindicate your mom, and all those who have helped to separate us will face exposure and justice. They will be ashamed. And God will restore the years we have had stolen from us, drying our tears, giving us laughter and joy once again. I forgive each one of you. I forgive Taylor, Carly and Olivia for any bad things they have said or done. It is going to be ok. I love you all dearly. I cannot wait to hold and hug and kiss you all.  Look up, Jesus is coming soon, please call me today. xxoo

Mom, Dad, Gretel and all


I don't know if you have seen this movie, but some people in NY recommended it to me and said that it reminded them of Calvary Temple.
