    Jim,
    Have you read Duane's statement? What are you suggesting when you say "A full disclosure of the pertinent facts would have been the truth..." What didn't Duane disclose?

    Dear Peach, You are absolutely right about my confusion. I had you confused with rosie55. Please accept my sincerest apology. I have removed that entire part of my post. again, i am truly sorry for any misunderstanding. TM

    this is the post from rosie55 i was referring to.

    Again truthmagnet--all of what you have said is hearsay and gossip because no one has been charged in a court of law. Again--let Duane and company form a lawsuit (I understand this is being done) and then come on here and talk about it. But until it is PROVEN in a court of law, Tommy is innocent of any child abuse.....

    thebonedealer says to me:
    " . . you can not separate the lies and slander that have occurred here due to the web site of robert and gailon . . "
    Who are you to tell me I cannot separate the lies and slander, blah blah blah. I have never mentioned Robert or Gailon in any of my post nor have I mentioned anything or referred to anything they have said and I have never quoted either of them.
    ...if you were on firmer footing you wouldn't need the personal attacks and would be able to merely offer the evidence to refute either one of our positions . . .
    Please explain how one "offers evidence to refute either one of your positions" when one is just stating their personal opinion! I believe I am on firm footing. I speak from a place of experience and compassion. I have not made any personal attacks that I am aware of, however I have defended what I believe in when I am attacked for my own personal opinions or when I have defended the victims when they are insulted and treated with disregard
    . . . no one has, as you put it "attacked victims" . . . they have asked questions in an effort to seek some level of verification, to refute accusations, to seek clarification . . . according to your approach (as evidenced by the ideas your words convey), anyone can make any accusation and they should never be checked to see if these accusations are real or lies . . . that goes against the system of justice in this country, as well as God's system of justice . . .
    I respectfully disagree. If those who think as you do were simply asking questions that would be one thing. You can ask questions kindly. You do not have to do it in a derogatory, accusatory or condesending fashion.
    "now, an observation . . . if you have once made a statement that tommy shelton is a child molester, or insinuated such merely from the "information" (and that is used in it's loosest terms here) found here, or on the robert/gailon site without sitting for a long while to speak with the "victims" or tommy shelton . . . then you are dabbling in baseless accusation and slander against an individual - why don't you stand up for that "victim" . . ."
    Your comments towards me are filled with "Ifs" showing you have no clue what I have said or where I get my opinions. I have never called TS anything. NEVER! I believe the victims and I think the evidence I have read from them and from TS's confession to DC is overwhelming. That is the sum of all that I have ever said. Being a victim myself, I know that with my offender and most offenders there is a pattern and there is a pattern here. I speak from experience and where you get your assumptions of what I know and where or who I get my information from is just rediculous bloviating.
    Just answer me 1 question. Where do you get your infomation from?

    Excuse me, Jim, but I don't believe I OWE you full disclosure of facts. I NEVER said I was a victim of child molestation, I said I was sexually abused. If you such a great investigator, you should have known that as I have said it MANY times on the net.

    I don't see any need to communicate further with you. Your implications that I have lied or withheld information to make my case is disgusting. Our conversations have ceased.

    Duane, what Jim Larmore has reflected here on this forum is the very thing that keeps so many victims of sexual abuse silent. The bullying and revictimization of victims by law enforcement officers like Jim, and by much of the religious community are a consistent means of discouraging other victims from coming forward to make their case. Sexual victimization leaves a person in a fragile state of mind that is devastated by law enforcement officials and by "religious adherents" who attempt to make the crime out to be the victim's fault, or purport that victims are liars, as has been done here. Law enforcement officers who treat victims in this manner support those who break the law by silencing their victims.

    I was here about 18 hours ago and posted on page two! Here I am on page 7. How time flies!

    Somebody surely has had their buttons pushed really hard.

    This is about 3ABN isn't it?

    I couldn't help but think of OJ Simpson. He was accused in court and was proven innocently, but there was a civil suit filed and he was proven guilty! How can that be!

    Some of these alleged victims may not be able to file charges against Tommy Shelton because of the statute of limitations.

    However, what about the civil courts. You know, the one where you can really have to PAY!

    I believe a secular jury will have no problem figuring out is the allegations are true. Sometimes the letters SDA get in the way. Historically the thing SDA's do is bury their head in sand and acting like there is no problem.

    That is OK. Let those who can press charges do it, or maybe there could be a class action civil suit?

    The Save 3ABN web page covers so much more than Tommy Shelton. In the beginning, Danny went bonkers over people "Outing" Tommy, but I believe he is now using his own brother to mask the real problems.

    If we spend all this time talking about Tommy, just when will we address all the problems with Danny Lee Shelton.

    I thought they might give up attacking Linda since it is not working, but I was wrong. Someone proved that earlier in a previous post.

    Now Tommy has become the red herring! Hum, amazing.

    Isn't the brain marvelous? You never know what the mind will do. Take for example when Danny was trashing Linda everywhere. What happened? Everyone ran to her defense except for Danny's crowd.

    Now we have the Tommy DEFENDERS out in force! How is that working? Tommy looks ever so much MORE guilty.

    What is this? Why does everything Danny's group tries, backfire?

    I am not allowed to post links because I haven't posted enough, so it you type in these word with no spaces, (Save 3ABN), and the add (dot com) to it, you can read to your hearts content documented facts.

    There is MUCH MORE to come. For those in doubt go an read. Jesus told Nathaniel to "Come and see".

    That is what I would like for all of you to do, "Come and see."

    I believe the die has been cast and the ball is in the air ready for the next grand slam. Who will serve it? I will have to wait just like everyone else and see.

    Please turn your unkind words away from Duane, They should be aimed at me. Please, leave the alleged victims alone. This type of treatment is the very reason victims are so slow to come forward. They are treated like trash. I believe they are most courageous! It is not an easy thing to do!

    Let our judgements rest in the documents. What has Tommy presented in his own defense? Nothing.

    I personally believe Tommy has repented for his wrong doing. However, I am not God and do not know for sure.

    There is one nagging thing in my mind about this repentance. I believe he has asked God to forgive him, but has he apologized and asked for forgiveness from any victims? This, in a way makes me doubt any true repentance.

    Will there be reparations and apologies to any victims?

    Probably not, since that would be an admission of guilt, right? We just can't do that now can we.

    Will Danny apologize for his unchristian behavior toward his ex-wife? How about to the donors?

    Just some questions I have been asking myself for some time.

    Tomatoe;

    Please do not spit me out when you chew me up, OK?

    The question about being in Dan Quayle's family was in jest. Please do not take it personal! You could live in Canada. Many spell Tomato with an "e" at the end.

    The Canadians also have trouble with the word "color", aye?

    Smile, life is too short.

    As we recently moved from one location to another, I have been too busy to keep up on what's being posted here.

    In fact, I just managed to catch up on it now.

    I agree that there is too much flaming going on here, which is out of character for those naming the name of Jesus.

    Well, why in the world would you bring this topic over here, knowing full well this subject is conducive to flaming. Also why did I never read a similar comment from you over at bsda when it appears your side was doing all the flaming?

    Daryl;

    I'm glad your move was successful and you have returned.

    I am having trouble catching up on everything too! I am still trying to figure out about the forum icons! Still have to work on that.

    I did get the SDA Icon up under my name; however I am really worried about my health!

    Have a great one!

    Could someone explain to me what "flaming" is? I have read the rules but don't understand that term.

    Okay, I just went back to the rules and found that "flaming" had a link. I now understand it and totally agree that it is inappropriate.

    I remember something in the rules about calling attention to the ads so I have changed my post.
