Yes, pedophilia and the Baptists go hand in hand. I will get to more on that shortly.
First let me start off with Laura (Psycho) Silsby, I just like to call her psycho silsby myself..
Recap: Laura Silsby and her Baptist cronies went to Haiti and stole children in cahoots with the pedophile/runner of prostitute rings and devout follower of Judaism Jorge Puello.
Poor Laura Silsby, her husband is demanding full custody of their kids and she has a bunch of other problems.
I saw this picture of her, which seemed to ooze evil. Weird?
Setting the Silsby/Puello saga aside briefly, it is her Baptist church, religion and faith and their predatory ways we will move on to.
I came across a most interesting site today. StopBaptistPredators
This is the website of an individual who suffered abuse at the hand of a Baptist Minister.
As a naive 16-year-old growing up in a North Texas Baptist church in the 1960s, she was pressured into having a sexual relationship with her youth minister. The married pastor told Brown it was God's will and justified his marital infidelity by citing Bible verses about concubines - then excoriated her as a satanic temptress when his wife found out."
The site makes note of the Hush it up-Cover it up pattern. It covers just some of the scandals and updated scandals on it's news page
On that page you will notice the coverage of the Baptist Laura Silsby, her church and their scandal.
Reading through this site, just set my brain a churnin' !
Was Silsby really acting on her own? Was Silsby acting on behalf of the church?
I had come across a comment somewhere, someone had taken notice of how the Baptist church back peddled on their connection to Puello, once the news came out that he was running pedo/prostitution rings. The commenter had thought that the way Puello came out to help, he must have had a previous connection to the church. Maybe he did?
Maybe, just maybe the Silsby story isn't isolated to just her, the few followers and one church.
Because recalling initially there were Baptists from other churches involved.
-Silsby is a member of Central Valley Baptist Church in Meridian, Idaho
- pastor Paul Thompson, his son Silas and church member Steve- Eastside Baptist Church in Twin Falls, Idaho
-Allen and Drew Culberth, a firefighter who also is an assistant youth pastor at Bethel Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan.
Bethel Baptist is the only church not affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. I am not sure what the 'southern baptist convention' is, or what is signifies, but it must be important enough to garner mention.
And what about this man? Pastor Jean Sainvill? Who now seems to be missing in action?
"The pastor, Jean Sainvil, described the controversy as a misunderstanding stemming from the volunteers not having the needed paperwork for the children. Sainvil said the Baptist volunteers were acting "with a good heart."
Is he a Baptist also? Two interesting videos here and here regarding Pastor Jean Sainvill.
Could we really be looking at organized pedophile rings being run through these churches?
Nothing seems very clear cut at all.
