My Very Own “Cult Scare” (A Public Defender’s Observations)

In a few short years, about half of my life will have been spent learning first-hand about the anti-cult movement and the current colloquial trends surrounding the use of the word “cult” to describe varied and diversified new religious movements.

Let me just say, every step along the way was worth it to know what I know now.

< cut >

The Raid

Meanwhile, I was still getting to know the little church community that lived as the Bible described in the Book of Acts (chapters 2 & 4).

One evening about a year earlier, I was visiting the community and was invited to spend the night. It was already dark, my boyfriend was on a hiking trip, and it seemed like a good idea. I stayed up late talking with two of the women, and then went to bed in a room by myself.

The next thing I knew it was 6:45 the next morning and a state trooper with a big hat and a long, huge flashlight burst into my room and pointed its glare right at my face. He said “Get up, get dressed, we’re here to take the children!”

It was Friday, June 22, 1984.

Ninety Vermont State troopers in bulletproof vests and fifty social workers raided 19 homes in the pre-dawn hour, demanding the names of the children and the children themselves.

They waved papers as if they had a flag of victory demonstrating the State’s conquest over the religious beliefs of the individuals involved.

A local judge had signed a search warrant to legitimize the round-up of the unsuspecting children, so the zeal of the social workers became unleashed to confidently intrude into the lives of these little ones as if they were doing them a great favor, rescuing them from the abusive clutches of their fanatical parents.

112 children were unlawfully seized that morning because of the religious beliefs of their parents.4

We were transported, in custody, to the courthouse in Newport, Vermont, some 20 miles away, where each family awaited its turn to appear before a judge who would decide whether they would be separated or kept together.

Happily for the parents, Judge Frank Mahady was a man who respected the State Constitution of Vermont as well as the U.S. Constitution, and who did not judge by the barometer of public opinion.

As he properly called the lawyers from the State Attorney General’s Office to provide evidence of abuse to justify the seizure of each child, the State of Vermont was left with nothing to say, except to speak against the faith of those brought to court.

Court continued late into the night, calling each child by name. Each one was sent home with his parents, as there was no basis to keep even one for examination by the state’s battery of doctors, social workers, and psychiatrists who sat to no avail nearly an hour away at a ski resort, waiting to perform their scrutinizing rituals.

At around 9 pm, Judge Mahady had to decide what to do with the large group of children whose parents would not give their names, according to their constitutional rights, despite the coercion of law enforcement’s threatening tactics.

After hearing the arguments, he released them all to return home with their parents. He gave the opportunity for any parent who had something to say to speak.

Many passionately told the story of their day and spoke of their deep gratitude for a judge who ruled justly. By 11 pm, a bus of tired, but rejoicing families headed home to Island Pond, singing the praises of their God and giving thanks for the judge whose humble response was, “I’m only doing my job.”

I was thankful to have been an eye witness to the State of Vermont’s “grossly unlawful, unconstitutional scheme”5 to destroy the Church in Island Pond.

Although I already knew that something was very, very wrong, it was not until fifteen years later that it could be proven that there had been a deliberate plan afoot to destroy the little group.

It was written, six pages long, and conceived by a mercenary anti-cult zealot named Galen Kelly for the price of $1000.

He devised it at the request of Priscilla Coates, then director of the Cult Awareness Network.

The two had visited the Attorney General’s office in Vermont on August 9, 1983, and persuaded the state government to execute the steps of the plan.

They had actually deceived government officials to simply go along with their plot, such was the powerful effect of their lies, their tactics, and their agenda.

The faith of community members and their trust in their God prevailed. No one knew back then that it was not simply the result of inadvertent good intentions. I knew it in my spirit, but the facts and the evidence to prove it were elusive and remote, taking time, diligence, and divine providence to accumulate.

Nevertheless, I was drawn to the spirit of the group, their love for each other, and their God. In September 1985, I left my former life behind and joined the Community Church in Island Pond. Over the years, the missing pieces of the puzzle surfaced to reveal a hateful and malicious scheme to destroy the group.

The anti-cult movement is alive and well around the globe, on its mission to squelch religious freedom by promoting fear of new and different religions, as if individuals are not entitled to “grope for God.”

The bad press and lies from Vermont in the early ‘80s has circulated to Canada, Europe, and Australia, influencing governments, anti-religious “sect commissions,” and individuals, to the detriment of the truth.

The anti-cult movement is calculated and deceptive, with intentions to plant fear and use scare tactics through the media to execute plans to destroy small groups.

It is worldwide in scope, and its nature is to accuse, to point the finger. Evidence is not necessary. They can manufacture it somehow. It is the nature of the evil one to accuse.

As the world careens toward the brink of destruction, the eternal battle between good and evil dominates the world stage. No one can deny that it is getting worse and worse. As for me, I am thankful that I could find out for myself what the truth was and follow it, and not be deceived by the lies and tactics of the anti-cult movement.

My hope in writing this is that you will not be taken in by their lies, but instead, heed the wisdom of Proverbs 17:4,

“An evildoer gives heed to false lips; a liar listens eagerly to a spiteful tongue.”

This woman was a public defender to a Twelve Tribes leader when Vermont was harassing the group and then married him.

Trump has the get out of jail free card.

And he told us so.

The first FISA court warrant. 5 judges signed it,attached to it is a Signing statement by President Obama giving immunity to anyone involved if charged.

They … never thought --- Hillary would lose.

Trump will play it if the Mueller report tries to indict him.

#StoneColdCrazy

It is an essential task of the FBI and the intelligence community to give a defensive briefing to a presidential candidate when a foreign adversary is attempting to penetrate or make contact with someone in the campaign.

If the FBI and DOJ were so concerned about Carter Page and (George) Papadopoulos why didn’t they brief Trump when he became a candidate?

The fact that they didn’t is very revealing.

If they gave a defensive briefing to the Clinton campaign then I think we have the answer.
