Religious & Crime / "Satanic Crime" Series #006 ----------------------------------------------- John Todd claimed that he was initiated as a "Grand Druid high priest" in 1971 by the "top witch in the world," Ruth Carter Stapleton; that President Kennedy was still alive in 1978; that the Illuminati had selected Jimmy Carter to be the Antichrist; that the Spiritual Counterfeits Project (an evangelical Christian countercult ministry in Berkeley) was really an arm of the Way International cult; and that by October 1979, the Hell's Angels motorcycle gang together with 200,000 federal and state prisoners who would be simultaneously released, had plans to commit "helter skelter" (mass murder) under the leadership of Charles Manson, turning the countryside into a bloodbath. The list could go on indefinitely. He claimed that Pat Robertson, C.S. Lewis, Chuck Smith, Walter R. Martin, Andrae Crouch, Pat Boone, the Bill Gaither Trio and Nancy Honeytree were all agents of the Illuminati, intentionally working for Satan. He claimed John R. Rice and C.I. Scofield were actually Jesuit agents, and that the Illuminati (i.e., Grand Druid witchcraft) are the ones who control the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church. Todd collected huge amounts of money from Christians, claiming that it would be used to build a secret, armed fortress to protect some alleged "ex-witches" from the "contracts" which had been put on their heads to kill them. This fortress was never built, and Todd kept the money. Todd was a liar of monstrous proportions, as has been well-documented in the book "The Todd Phenomenon," by Darryl Hicks and David Lewis (New Leaf Press, 1979). In November 1979 I was personally thrown out of a meeting by John Todd, screaming at the top of his lungs, after I publicly asked him to verify some of his bizarre claims. (He claimed I was part of the Illuminati, too.) "Dr. Rebecca Brown" is just as deceptive, albeit a bit more shrewd than Todd. She tried to hide any concrete facts about herself (including her name and home city), which would enable people to check up on her story. However, her real name is "Ruth Irene Bailey" from Indianapolis, and her license to practice medicine was revoked by the Indiana State Medical Licensing Board for numerous prosecutable medical violations, including falsifying medical records, giving her patients and herself abnormally high doses of Demerol, and various neurotic behaviors. For example, she claimed to have the power to diagnose diseases that no one else could detect, and to sympathetically "share" the undiagnosable diseases of her patients. One of her patients, Edna Elaine Moses (a.k.a. "Elaine") was admitted to an emergency hospital with lesions all over her body, due to habitual overdose of Demerol -- prescribed to her by Dr. Bailey. A six-hour public hearing was held when Bailey's license was revoked. She refused to appear. Elaine's testimony in "He Came to Set the Captives Free" (Chick Publications) could only be believed by the incredibly gullible. Elaine claims (p. 55) that she attended an "international competition" of witches and warlocks where "I had to, with no more than a snap of my fingers, change a cat into a rabbit and then back again." The final test (pp. 55-56) was to stop the bullets of a .357 magnum fired into her chest at point-blank range. (If this were the _real_ test for witchcraft, there would be no high priestesses at all!) Then Satan materialized in physical form to marry "Elaine" as his Bride, and they all "boarded a luxurious private jet with several high priests and high priestesses and flown out to California" (where else?). Elaine, as the top witch in the world and the Bride of Satan, met many top U.S. government officials and "representatives of foreign governments." She and Satan also flew "to the Vatican in Rome to meet with the Pope" (p. 62). "The Pope knew very well who I was," she says-- and so did "many of the well known Rock music stars" (p. 63).
