“Dissociation gets you through a brutal experience, letting your basic survival skills operate unimpeded…Your ability to survive is enhanced as the ability to feel is diminished…All feeling are blocked; you ‘go away.’ You are disconnected from the act, the perpetrator & yourself…Viewing the scene from up above or some other out-of-body perspective is common among sexual abuse survivors.”
― Renee Fredrickson, Repressed Memories: A Journey to Recovery from Sexual Abuse

 (Not a comprehensive list by any means)

    OREGON - The incestuous relationship with his daughter went on for many years, but it was apparently not mutually enjoyable. Dorothy related to friends how on one occasion in a hotel room she so strongly protested her fathers sexual abuse that the manager knocked on the door and asked what the reason was for all the noise. Herbert was quick to inform him that his "young bride" was a bit uncooperative due to inexperience. Satisfied with the alibi, the manager left. Dorothy claimed that Herbert then overpowered her, and after tying her to the bed and gagging her, proceeded to rape her.

    In 1980 Henry Cornwall, then an aide to Herbert W. Armstrong, read the Robinson book soon after it appeared and asked HWA directly if the chapter on incest was accurate. Herbert W. Armstrong told him it was.

    Although the incest was a legal issue in Herbert's divorce proceedings, the crime was never referred to the district attorneys office for prosecution.



MARIETTA (CN) - It took just 33 minutes for a Georgia jury to convict a 78-year-old pastor of molesting two young girls at his church in Cobb County.

During the trial, two young girls testified that they were molested by defendant John Aubrey Pinkston, at the Congregation of God Seventh Day in Kennesaw, a church Pinkston founded and led.

Pinkston, of Dallas, was arrested in 2013 on a total of three counts of child molestation. The Cobb District Attorney's Office said later Pinkston confessed to touching one girl when questioned by police, telling them it was a "stupid mistake" that lasted "only 15 seconds."

After the jury announced its verdict, Judge Robert Leonard II sentenced Pinkston to 10 years behind bars, and another 10 years on probation to be served after his release. "Mr. Pinkston, you've been convicted of the unforgiveable sin of molesting the most vulnerable members of your flock," Leonard said during the sentencing, "You've taken no responsibility whatsoever."

Assistant District Attorney Chuck Boring, who prosecuted the case, was even more blunt during a press conference following Pinkston's sentencing, saying not only did he refuse to take responsibility for his acts, but "he spit in everyone's face with the nonsense that he used to try to manipulate the jury."

Pinkston did apologize before he was sentenced, but when Judge Leonard question whether his apology was sincere, the disgraced pastor expressed only frustration. "What more do you want me to do? You're going to send me to prison anyway," Pinkston said.



NEW ZEALAND - A former woodwork teacher repeatedly molested children aged between three and 16 while reading passages from the bible and posing as a churchgoer.

79-year-old Stephen Gough admitted to nine acts of child sex abuse charges on Wednesday at Waitakere District Court in New Zealand.

He received three-and-a-half years behind bars for his disturbing crimes.

The judge said that Mr Gough carefully orchestrated his acts and used the children as 'sexual toys'.

The court heard that Gough, who needed the help of a walking stick to get up on the dock, repeatedly committed the heinous crimes against three girls and one boy over an 11-year period.

Gough gained the trust of community members by being heavily involved in his local community and in the church.

It was revealed that Gough would read passages from the bible to the innocent children while sexually abusing them, between 1976 and 1987.

The court also heard that Gough watched children showering by carving out a peep hole under a house.

Police say new charges against Gough will be considered if further victims identify themselves.

As Gough was led away from the dock, one of his victims screamed out in disgust. 'Burn in hell you piece of shit.'



EASTBOURNE, UK - An 86-year-old former church deacon has been jailed for eight years for indecent assault on young boys more than 20 years ago.

William Koeneke (pictured), 86, of Pevensey Road, Eastbourne was convicted at Isleworth Crown Court on March 12 of four counts of indecent assault on boys under the age of 16.

He committed the assaults on the boys when he was working at the Worldwide Church of God (WCG).

He was a deacon at the church and would often deliver sermons.Koeneke befriended and assaulted the four young victims between 1985 and 1989 at an address in Paddington.

He was jailed for eight years and placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register for life. A Sexual Offences Prevention Order was also imposed. Koeneke was arrested in December 2011 following allegations made by the four victims, who are now in their 30s.

 Koeneke is/was a minister in the Church of the Eternal God, also known as Global Church of God in England and the Church of God, A Christian Fellowship in Canada.



SANDUSKY REGISTER- A former UCG member who jumped ship to the Church of God a Worldwide Association (COGWA) has been sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty of raping two little girls.

The judge in the case told Wagner that he made his bedroom "a torture chamber for those two children." The judge also told the defendant the sexual abuse was similar to a life sentence for the girls.

The Erie County Sheriff's Office arrested the suspect Friday morning at his Mudbrook Road home without incident.

Deputies learned of the allegations Feb. 11 after one of the girls accused Wagner of raping her several times. Her mother then asked the older sister if anything happened to her and she also reported being victimized by Wagner, Chief Deputy Jared Oliver said.

The girls at the time were 6 and 10 years old.

Oliver said the first suspected rape, which involved the older girl, happened in April 2011 and then "Joe started abusing the younger one," which continued through February.


SALEM, OREGON - The court was shocked yesterday by at the presentation of an audio tape, recorded in secrecy by the oldest son, in which the six year old daughter was allegedly beaten severely with a fiberglass tent pole with a knotted cord dangling from it for over two minutes, while a voice of a woman, identified as Robyn Kay Drown chatted in the background.

According to the tape, at no time during the beating did anyone come to the defence of the little child who screamed and cried while her father called her "rebellious" and mentioned "the promised land". There also appeared on the tape to be at least one other child present during the beating.

Robyn Drown was indicted with her husband Graydon Drown on 25 counts of second-degree assault and criminal mistreatment of nine of their children.

Alleged weapons of abuse include a metal pipe, a switch, 2-by-4 boards and other household objects such as a fiberglass tent pole with a knotted cord, and wooden spoons.




CARTERSVILLE DISPATCH - Was wanted for aggravated child molestation and 12 other charges.

Dean was a former WCG minister and Herbert Armstrong’s right hand enforcer.

On May 14, 2019, Dean plead guilty to aggravated child molestation and 12 additional charges.

Dean initially avoided his first trial in April 2012 by
 “running from the courtroom." He was out of jail on a $75,000 bond at the time, and would be on the run until his re-capture in March 2019.

Accusations of sexual improprieties with young girls go back to the 1980's. For example, this one comment from someone who was a student at the time said: "He sexually assaulted and molested 4 teen workers/campers during the summer of 1984 at Orr. A camper got a sweet gig on the ski team as hush payment ."
