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Indianapolis, and her license to practice medicine was revoked by the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).
