Settlement is the traditional way for the church to resolve it's lawsuit difficulties. That and drag it out as long as possible until the people lose interest or run out of money to pay attornies.


Yeah, they can't drag it out long enough for either to happen. Their current tactic seems to be intimidation (hiring Private Investigators to stalk me and other witnesses and issuing ridiculous subpoenas) as well as refusing to produce two witnesses (Mike Ruoho and Brent Sanderson) unless I agree to a gag order.

The West Ridge Academy / Utah Boys Ranch will be in court on another, unrelated child sex abuse lawsuit in Salt Lake City in a few weeks.

What would it take to buy your silence? Money? Status? Because that's what they'll offer you.


Fortunately, I'm at a point in my life where my silence just can't be bought. Besides, this is bigger than me and the movement will continue with or without me until the facility inevitably goes out of business. They would not only have to buy my silence, they would need to buy my help in silencing others.

The first threat came in October 2008, when I was threatened with a lawsuit by John Stohlton. I've received several other similar threats. I usually just post them on the Internet for the public to see.

It would appear Burton is suffering from Junk Food Attraction, isn't there a clinic the Church can send him to until he's cured...?

Does this mean that West Ridge Academy is official doctrine?

One more for the road:

At a fundraising event featuring Mormon Tabernacle Choir star Alex Boye, LDS Church admits to providing “oversight at West Ridge since its inception.“

Quote:

Allen Proctor, a long-time licensed clinical social worker at LDS Family Services, was also honored during the evening with a Legacy of Hope Award in recognition of his oversight at West Ridge since its inception.

Bishop H. David Burton, the presiding bishop of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints emphasized that the LDS church “has been and continues to be a long-time supporter of the outstanding programs at this academy.”

“Much of the furniture at the academy is donated from Deseret Industries and much of the food served at their cafeteria is provided by the Bishop’s Storehouse,” said Burton.


http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7053 ... -gala.html


At this point, I don't see how anyone can possibly say that The Church is not completely behind the Utah Boys Ranch / West Ridge Academy.

Eric,

I saw this on the NOM board and thought you might be interested:

Its the 10th anniversary of the movie "Charly", and it is going to be re-released in theaters - "To Benefit West Ridge Academy".

Looks like the LDS Church is more or less responsible for the Mormon Gulag at this point. Pretty s****y business if you ask me.

And the food from the storehouse is given out on a stake basis, right? So the stake this sits in is burdened with this enormous outflow of product, which may make it nearly impossible for the poor in that stake to access the storehouse.

Good point.

I think an email to a relative of mine might be in order.

Maybe this counts as a mini-stake, and they're distributed food as if they were a stake, from the central storehouse in Salt Lake City. So they're in the same line as the stakes, when it comes to distribution?

Possibly. If that is the case, though, then the Church is responsible for what goes on there, and needs to take the reigns and stop the abuse.

The Church may view the food contribution the same as it views a contribution to humanitarian aid, like the hurricane victims?

Again, since the books are closed, there is no way to know. :rolleyes:

More proof that the Mormon Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ™ supports, endorses, finances, and operates a facility that has swept numerous sex abuse cases under the rug via settlement, and to this day tortures and abuses children on an institutional basis. Children with no access to help, an advocate, due process, or any way to protect themselves.

Read the following sworn testimony by Mormon gasbag Senator Chris Buttars, along with the other evidence documented in this thread and on mormongulag.com and tell me the Mormon Church is not 100% responsible for the obscene abuse that goes on at their West Ridge "Academy" on a daily basis.

Quote:
Mormon Sponsored Child Abuse & Torture

The following document is from the case file of the multi-million dollar child sex abuse lawsuit that West Ridge Academy / Utah Boys Ranch recently settled earlier this summer. 

The entire transcript is worth reading, but here are a few notable excerpts. After the rest of court records for this sexual abuse case are released, The Mormon Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will have no choice but to take ownership and reponsibility for the egregious abuse and torture that goes on at West Ridge Academy, where they promote, finance, employ missionaries, and oversee day-to-day operations.
The full deposition Transcript given by the infamous Senator Doyle Chris Buttars can be downloaded and read in full by clicking:  Mormon Child Abuse – Chris Buttars

Eric, you have my deepest sympathies. I'm sorry you had to endure this nonsense.

I find the sentiment of the Church being willing to pay for any type of medical care to be an act of charitable kindness. I doubt the Bishop had any inkling of mistreatment on the part of the Ranch. While the outcome was unfortunate, the spirit of caring was beneficent.

BTW, do you think the Anabaptists ever paid for trepanning? If so, they need not be judged on the outcome, but rather their caring and giving.

In my experience, bishops are good people who care about me.

I think you are confusing medical care with boot camp. There differences in licensing, practices, oversight, and scope of services couldn't be more dissimilar.


Speaking of good bishops, since personal opinions trump reality in some cases, I'd like to nominate a few good bishops for Moksha to praise:

Bishop Amado Rojas

Bishop Gordon Moon

Bishop Kevin Thomas

Bishop Julius Blackwelder

Bishop Matthew Meyers and Bishop Troy Hansen won't face any charges thanks to the legal team (credit due to Robert Dale Crockett of course) of the Mormon Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Quote:
Chandler Police Officer Christopher Perez said in the report that legal representatives for the church in Salt Lake City told him Arizona is considered a "green state" when it comes to reporting abuse "meaning the Bishop in the LDS Church has no duty to report any information received regarding child abuse if that came to him in confidence.


How any sane human being that lacks a hatred for young people and a desire to see them abused can defend bishops is beyond me.

What about the Bishop recently in the news who tried to sexually abuse a single sister and attempted to bite her sons cock off when he tried to intervene?

There are undoubtedly some good Bishops, but these men are not good because they are Bishops, they're just good men.

I think that, technically, the penis-chomper was a Branch President, not a Bishop. Totally different thing. I see how you lying apostate critic heretics lie and twist and distort the truth to your own nefarious purposes.
