Numerous survivors, witnesses and other whistleblowers have come forth to expose how the LDS Church protects pedophiles.
The LDS Church protects and recycles pedophiles!
Did you know that over the last few years, there have been mass arrests and take-downs of notorious pedophile networks all around the world (and it’s all public knowledge)? While it might shock many to hear that Hollywood has been revealed as a haven for pedophiles and sex abusers (with special thanks to Harvey Weinstein and the Me Too Movement), the Vatican has also been exposed for harboring countless pedophiles within the Catholic Church. In fact, between 2004 and 2019, the Vatican handled thousands of cases of child sexual abuse, stretching across many continents. Consequently, thousands of Catholic Priests, Bishops and Clergy have been found guilty of sexually abusing children. Even high ranking Vatican officials have been indicted for the sexual abuse of children.
On the other hand, did you know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (aka LDS Church) has also racked up countless accusations of child sexual abuse over the course of many decades, and yet, they are still standing strong? In fact, the LDS Church currently has over 16 million members worldwide and at least 80 to 100 billion dollars in assets as of 2019.
Surprisingly, while two of the world’s most powerful entities have been exposed and brought to justice (Hollywood and the Vatican), the LDS Church continues to thrive! How is it possible that the LDS Church has been able to cover up multitudes of child sexual abuse cases for decades while also escaping the justice system?
As you’re about see, the LDS Church operates within a virtually fail-proof system that protects even the most notorious of pedophiles – from church members all the way up to top ranking officials at the head of the hierarchy.
For the sake of full disclosure, before we begin, the information I’m about to share has already been exposed through various sources over the course of many years. However, despite indisputable public information, child sexual abuse within the LDS Community continues to run rampant. Therefore, the primary goal of this article is to put some complex pieces of the puzzle together so that we can have a clear picture of how (and why) the church protects and even recycles pedophiles. (At the end of this article, there will be a detailed bibliography with more than 75 resources.)
The LDS Code of Silence (Church Policy that Covers up Child Sexual Abuse)
Despite the fact that child sexual abuse is considered a serious crime in the United States, and elsewhere in the world, the LDS Church classifies child sexual abuse as merely a sin, and furthermore, according to church policies, it’s not a crime to sexually molest children.
As a result, LDS victims of abuse are discouraged from notifying the law and filing criminal charges, and instead, they are instructed to speak only to their Bishops – and from that point on, the church handles the matter internally as if it is a sin (disregarding the law entirely).
However it’s important to note that in Utah (the spiritual headquarters of the LDS Church), as well as 43 other states in the U.S, Church Clergy are not required to report child sexual abuse to the legal authorities when the confession comes directly from the perpetrator. Nonetheless, even in states with mandatory reporting, and even when the report comes from the victim, LDS Bishops are instructed to circumvent legal authorities.
So, instead of notifying the law in cases of child sexual molestation, there is an ecclesiastical trial where the LDS “disciplinary council” determines whether or not a church member has committed a sin worthy of discipline (aka probation, dis-fellowship or excommunication). However, if a Bishop decides that the abuse is not “too bad,” the case does not go to the disciplinary council, and instead, the Bishop handles the matter himself. In many cases, no disciplinary action is taken whatsoever. Even when disciplinary measures are taken, the perpetrator’s actions are kept secret from the LDS community, and consequently, the perpetrator has free rein to go on abusing other children in the community.
Special Abuse Helpline
Due to a growing number of reports in the 1990s, the LDS Church set up a special hotline to help Bishops deal with sexual abuse cases within their congregations. While Mormon leaders insist that the sole purpose of the hotline is to help church officials comply with the law, court documents suggest that the real purpose of the hotline is to shield the church from lawsuits, thereby, protecting pedophiles.
According to Vice News, “Court documents have revealed that calls from the Mormon Church’s 24-hour helpline, used by church officials to report suspected abuse, are being transferred to a law firm that defends the church in abuse-related lawsuits.”
“Directing abuse-related calls to church lawyers allows the church to classify them as “attorney-client” communications, protecting them from disclosure in lawsuits and other forums, according to legal experts.” – The Daily Beast
While there’s significant evidence that the helpline is designed to protect LDS pedophiles by keeping them out of the criminal system, the cover-up does not end there. Apparently, “The Church Handbook of General Instructions,” that is given to all LDS Bishops, contains a “policy” that prevents Bishops and church members from getting involved in any type of criminal matter without speaking to the church’s legal counsel. According to a recent Fox News investigation, leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints received a letter dated August 4, 2020 reminding them of this church policy:
“We remind leaders and members of a long-standing policy that Church leaders should not involve themselves in civil or criminal cases regarding members in their units, quorums, or organizations without first consulting with Church legal counsel.”
– Letter signed by members of the First Presidency (aka head of the LDS Church)
In response to this letter, Ronald Zambrano, a California attorney with West Coast Employment Lawyers said, “He had grave concerns about any sort of blanket policy that might exist behind closed doors that would prohibit leaders from testifying or responding to a subpoena. This is no different than the culture of silence that led to the abuse of these kids in the Catholic Church… It’s a form of coercion. It’s a danger to our society.”
“If the Church is encouraging people to stay silent, you’re encouraging people to be complicit in these terrible events, and that is irresponsible.” – Zambrano
Rocky Anderson, an attorney and former mayor of Salt Lake City, said he believes the policy indicates “cultish control of members.” Anderson goes on to say, “The policy seems designed to cause dangerous delays, cover-ups, and perhaps obstruction of justice…. Listen to our lawyers instead of your conscience or your duties to the community, victims, or the truth?” – Fox News
Furthermore, LDS members who can’t, or won’t, talk to their Bishops about child sexual abuse, are told to call LDS Family Services hotline. However, unbeknownst to the caller, the moment “sexual abuse” is mentioned, the call is immediately transferred to a “special counselor” (aka legal attorney) representing the Law Offices of the LDS Church.
In a nutshell, the LDS Church has long-standing “policies” that protect Mormon pedophiles by keeping the law out of church business, and since most cases of child sexual abuse in the LDS community are never reported to the police, there are no accurate statistics.
So, what exactly happens to accused pedophiles?
According to the Lantern Project, the Mormon Church not only conceals child sexual abuse, they also give sanctuary to known sexual predators. The following is taken directly from the Lantern Project (the direct link for the Lantern Project can be found at the end of this article).
Does the Mormon Church Conceal Child Sexual Abuse and Give Sanctuary to Known Sexual Predators?
“Based on insurmountable evidence, the policies and practices of the LDS Church make it a haven for child molesters.” For example, “Franklyn Richard Curtis – High Priest, Primary Teacher, Blazer Leader, Home Teacher, and for fifteen years known to the First Presidency to be a Predatory Child Molester. Curtis sexually abused dozens of Mormon children in five states. Yet he represents just the ‘Tip of the Iceberg. ’Curtis was undoubtedly a sick individual. But what can you say about an organization that covered up for his crimes over and over for eighteen years?”
… Excommunicated Pedophiles get New Memberships with no record of prior child abuse
A pedophile who is excommunicated can get a new membership record upon rebaptism which has no reference to the prior history of abuse. (‘Clean-slate’ doctrine at work.)
…On Tracking known Pedophiles within the church
Because of design flaws in the database indexing system, it is impossible for the church to know whether a current member was previously excommunicated for child sexual abuse. This is because a new membership number is issued upon re-baptism and the record does not show any prior record reference numbers.
…Protocol sheet for Helpline reflects:
The Church Helpline is not for helping victims or getting child molesters reported to police but is about church claims management and scandal control. Concedes that there are no reporting resources for victims and their families within the LDS, just clergy. However, clergy are urged not to report abuse directly to police.
….On the Church Help Line
The church admits that it keeps no records of the number or nature of calls that come in on the hotline. It rings into LDS social services and is manned by an individual (who was a former stake president). If there is a reporting issue he conferences-in the LDS attorney.
…How the church defends its practice of recycling child molesters in court
Church lawyers acknowledge that the church’s policy is to forgive and recycle child molesters in their priesthood. “Child molesters are punished under church law, and once they have repented and been forgiven by the church, they are re-baptized. Once re-baptized, the church believes that the perpetrator has become a new person and they can start over.”
For example, after the LDS Church disciplined Franklyn Curtis, he repented for his sins, and then, through a rebaptism, he was cleansed of his previous transgressions in the eyes of the church – and all was forgiven.
For all intents and purposes, the LDS Church uses “freedom of religion” to defy criminal laws, and since Bishops have the power to forgive any sin, no matter how heinous, the church has assumed the right to atone the sins of even serial child molesters.
To sum it all up, even if accused pedophiles are excommunicated from the church, once they repent and are forgiven, they can be re-baptized back into the church as if nothing has happened. Along with this “clean slate” approach, pedophiles are not required to undergo behavior therapy or rehabilitation of any kind, and in fact, any potential church punishment is undefined.
Since the church believes that once a perpetrator is re-baptized, he becomes a “new person” with a fresh start, he receives a new membership record with no reference to any prior abuse, and while his new record is not tarnished in any manner, there are no public red flags to indicate his prior crimes against children.
Moreover, once a perpetrator is atoned for his sins, he is restored to his former position in the church and his prior sins cannot be held against him. So, not only does the church protect child molesters from the law, they also keep their secrets as well.
Even though the church hierarchy acknowledges that they do not do background checks on members involved with youth, nor screen out child molesters, it appears as if they may privately highlight re-baptized pedophiles; assigning them to positions where they work directly with children.
The Boy Scouts sexual abuse scandal is a perfect example:
In the 2020 documentary, “Church and The Fourth Estate,” film maker, Brian Knappenberger, highlights the widespread sexual abuse (and cover-up) involving both the LDS Church and the Boy Scouts. Apparently, these two organizations have been deeply connected for 110 years.
According to Brian Knappenberger:
“What typically happened was that an abuser in the Boy Scouts would go to the bishop, the bishop would determine if that person had repented. If so, then they could go back into the position they were in and there was no need to go to the law or even to inform people around them about what the person had done.”
While the LDS Church obviously allows self-identified pedophiles to work with children, it’s also curious how many “re-baptized pedophiles” get promoted into positions of power. I suppose this is why you can google the word “pedophile” along with the names of many of the LDS leaders and get alarming results.
Furthermore, in addition to church policies that protect and recycle pedophiles, the Mormon culture sets the stage for the whole atrocity to be orchestrated!
5 Ways that the LDS Culture Perpetuates Pedophilia
#1. Mormon Image is Everything
One of the reasons that child sexual abuse is covered up so well in the LDS Community is because image is everything to the Mormons. While devout Mormons are taught to follow strict religious rules that include no alcohol, no hot drinks, no premarital sex, etc…, they also spend several hours at church every Sunday. Moreover, after being “endowed” in the church, Mormons have to wear special church sanctioned underwear (with masonic emblems) 24/7. On top of all this, church members are encouraged to “report thy neighbor” for not following Mormon doctrine.
Since LDS members have a fear of being judged by their community, they have to keep up a picture perfect image to friends, family and neighbors. If this reminds you of the “Stepford Wives” where everyone smiles on the outside and no one talks about the real issues, it should!
Not surprisingly, victims of abuse are taught to keep family secrets in order to maintain a good Mormon image, and consequently, if they do speak out, family and friends often downplay the abuse or dismiss it altogether.
Moreover, it’s not uncommon for victims of sexual abuse to be accused of provoking the attack in some way, and then, guilt is leveraged to make them feel responsible so that they don’t speak out – while at the same time, family members often defend the perpetrators.
And yes, this is all orchestrated in the name of protecting the perfect Mormon family image!
While the majority of Mormon families try to represent the ideal, wholesome family on the outside, it’s a completely different story behind closed doors, and in fact, family dysfunction runs rampant in Utah (the state with largest Mormon population in the world).
According to U.S statistics, Utah has many of the highest rates for pornography addiction, depression, child abuse, sexual child abuse, domestic violence, mental illness, suicide, etc…. In fact, according to the Salt Lake Tribune, “In 2018, suicide was the leading cause of death for Utah youths ages 10 to 17, and the state’s suicide rate for all ages is more than 60 % above the national average.”
As experts try to determine the cause of these high statistics, they seem to be missing the most prevalent issue in the Mormon Culture – the ritual sex abuse of children!
#2. The LDS Culture of Obedience and Submission
While the primary means for resolving conflict in the Mormon culture is based on hierarchy, oppression, intimidation, and male-dominated authoritarianism, LDS members are taught to be submissive, meek, humble, patient, and willing to submit to all things.
Along with the constant message to be both obedient and submissive, Mormons are also taught that they have a Christian responsibility to “forgive and forget”, and as a result, they naturally learn to avoid confrontation at all costs. Needless to say, the combination of these dynamics perpetuate the prevalence of child sexual abuse in the LDS community.
#3. No Boundaries
Another reason that abuse is so prevalent within the Mormon Community is due to “lack of boundaries.” From early childhood onward, church members are brainwashed into obeying church leaders unquestionably – and do whatever they are told. In fact, one of the first things that leaders teach their followers is to always put the needs of others before their own.
While this might sound nice and loving on the surface, there’s an inherent flaw in this theology that makes people vulnerable to abuse. You see, if we’re taught that other people’s needs are always more important than our own, we have no choice but to acquiesce whenever someone makes a request. In other words, Mormons are not allowed to say no!
In fact, it’s fair to say that there’s an unspoken message in the church that says, “You don’t have the right to say no”, and therefore, having boundaries makes you a bad person.
Since Mormon children are literally trained to do things that they don’t want to do, they are naturally easy prey to sexual predators – and it wouldn’t be surprising if this dynamic was by design.
#4. The Pretense of Happiness
Since most Mormon families appear to be happy and successful while in public, victims of abuse often feel very alone – and may even doubt their experiences. After all, if everyone else appears to be so happy, and you are the only one who seems to be traumatized and depressed, you might believe that there is something wrong with you. So, for many LDS victims, it seems far better to just keep quiet, pretend to be happy, and eventually, master the perfect façade (just like everyone else).
#5. Identifying Children Who Might Talk
As yet, another means of concealing child sexual abuse, I suspect that the church has a special way to identify children who might accuse their perpetrators. In the LDS Church, it is common practice for male Bishops to privately interrogate pre-adolescent children about their sexual experiences, and in fact, behind closed doors, girls and boys as young, as twelve years old, are forced to answer very provocative questions about their sexuality.
While most of these children feel extremely vulnerable and uncomfortable during the interview, the pretense for this invasive questioning is based on the ideology that LDS Church members are supposed to be chaste. However, behind this pretense, there appears to be a nefarious, hidden purpose. After all, why would a Christian Church interrogate pre-teens about their sexuality?
Well, what if the church uses these invasive sexual interviews as a way to identify children who remember being sexually abused and who might expose the truth?
Furthermore, during the interview, if a child does confess to being sexually molested by his or her parents, relatives or other LDS members, the Bishop can conveniently cover-up the matter by making the child feel responsible for the abuse and shaming him or her into life-long secrecy.
Recipe for Concealing Child Sexual Abuse
Although there are no reliable statistics, the prevalence of child sexual abuse in the LDS Church is abhorrently high. In fact, it would not be surprising if the majority of the congregation was directly affected, either as victims or perpetrators – or potentially both.
No doubt, the combination of various dynamics is designed to ensure a “code of silence” that protects LDS pedophiles while conveniently bypassing the law. As described above, these dynamics include:
- Church policies that protect the church and its officials at the expense of innocent children.
- An LDS law firm that intercepts child sex abuse cases so that they are not reported to the legal authorities.
- A fake victim’s helpline.
- The LDS protocol of interrogating pre-teens about their sexual experiences (in order to identify children who might expose the truth).
- Recycling perpetrators through re-baptism and restoring their position in the church.
- Various methods of defending sexual perpetrators from the law while hiding their crimes from the community.
- Last, but not least, the Mormon culture demands that “Good Mormons” must practice obedience and submission – even if it means protecting known pedophiles.
The degree of Mind control in the LDS Church is so deep that even Mormons who have left the church continue to defend it.
In the rare chance that a child sex abuse case might actually go to criminal court, the LDS Legal Counsel has a practice of shaming and blaming victims in order to discourage them from speaking out against their perpetrators, and shockingly, it is not uncommon for the LDS Legal Counsel to accuse sexually traumatized children of being “whores” who seduced their abusers.
Now, that you understand how the LDS Church protects known pedophiles, and even serial child molesters, you’re probably wondering why a Christian Church would protect sexual predators at the expense of innocent children?
Part 2: Why is the LDS Church filled with Generations of Pedophiles?
Unfortunately, whether you want to believe it or not, there is substantial evidence to support the fact that the LDS Church is actually a Luciferian Religious Order disguised as a Christian Church.
Unbeknownst to most Mormons, Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism, based the original LDS Doctrine on the Luciferian Cult known as Freemasonry. (In fact, Joseph Smith was not only a Freemason who practiced “black magic,” he was also a known pedophile; marrying girls as young as fourteen.)
“Although we can say with certainty that the god of Freemasonry is a demon, we do not know specifically which demon Masons worship in lodge. We simply know that they refer to their demon as the Great Architect of the Universe, or GAOTU. All demons are under the leadership of Satan. Therefore, Freemasons cannot avoid worshiping Satan by proxy.”
– King James Bible: Corinthians 10:20-21
Just like the Mormons, most Freemasons have no idea that they are worshiping Lucifer (aka Satan).
According to the book, “Free at Last” by True Ott:
“The entire Mormon religion is Mason from start to finish. It clearly involves ritualistic Satanic abuse in the upper echelons of power and, like the Roman Catholic church, it involves sexual abuse of babies and young children. Utah has several unrelated but confirmed cases of abuse, and other areas have been officially exposed, but “the church” is still as powerful as ever and enjoying great success, even enjoying a candidate for president in 2012. Considering that the government and the church both are under the control of these Lucifer worshiping organizations, is it any wonder why they, like the Catholics, are getting away with it? The Illuminati has members all across the board; judges, police, you name it. It seems to me that this “church” has far too much power.” – True Ott
After examining mounds and mounds of evidence that appears to be bottomless, I’ve come to the conclusion that the acronym “LDS” actually represents “Luciferian Demonic Society”!
Please be clear, we’re not just talking about horrific events that happened in the past; we’re talking about generations of ritualistic abuse that are still being perpetrated on children today. For example, did you know that the daughter and son-in-law of the current Latter-day Saint President and Prophet, Russell M. Nelson, are now on trial for the satanic ritual abuse of children? (For info on this topic, please see links in the resource section below.)
Believe me, I know that all this information can be very hard to digest, and when information is this disturbing, it’s normal to experience cognitive dissonance. However, if you have eyes to see, and the courage to look, everything is in plain sight. So, please do your own research!
The Temple Endowment Ceremony
The most sacred religious ceremony in the LDS Church is known as the “Temple Endowment Ceremony.” Although this ceremony is considered to be the highest of the high for Mormons, it’s actually based on a Satanic Ritual (a variation performed by the Freemasons).
According to the Latter Day Saints website, “Receiving your temple endowment is one of the most sacred experiences of your life. Many members of the Church receive their endowment before a mission or marriage, while others simply have a strong desire to move forward along the covenant path. Only in the temple can we receive the ordinances necessary for us to be exalted in the celestial kingdom.”
Although the Endowment Ceremony is a secret temple ceremony, information has been leaked out, and in fact, at the end of this article, there’s a link to a live Endowment Ceremony that was secretly filmed in Salt Lake City, Utah.
So, what happens during the Endowment Ceremony?
As a pivotal part of the Endowment Ceremony, participants must act out a religious scene where a church member plays the part of Lucifer. At some point in the ceremony, Lucifer tells the participants to put on his “Green Apron” in order to hide their nakedness from God. Moreover, “Lucifer’s Apron” is kept on for the entire ceremony. (For some reason, the green apron is so significant that many Mormons are even buried in it.)
Believe it or not, during the ceremony, Lucifer literally tricks the participants into pledging their eternal souls to him. How does he do this?
Well, firstly, he asks them to make a covenant with God (aka contract, commitment, etc…). The covenant includes committing to a total of five LDS laws:
- Law of Obedience
- Law of Sacrifice
- Law of the Gospel
- Law of Chastity
- Law of Consecration
Secondly, Lucifer tells them that if they break any covenant, for any reason, their eternal soul will belong to him – and for the ceremony to continue, they must agree to these terms.
But, why doesn’t anyone question this ludicrous agreement?
By the time the Endowment Ceremony is scheduled, participants are already brainwashed and groomed to obey the church. Additionally, the ceremony is set up in such a way that participants are afraid to question anything. For example, they’re led to believe that if they ever share any temple secrets, their lives will be in danger, and in fact, during the ceremony, they must pretend to slice open their own throats and rip out their own guts, thereby acting out the fatal consequences for disclosing the truth (another reason, the nefarious actions of the LDS Church have remained hidden for so long).
So, as a result of major mind control, Endowment participants just go along with the process; reciting what they’re told to recite and doing what they’re told to do.
Unfortunately, even for the most pure and noble Mormons, it’s literally impossible to live according to a list of covenants for an entire lifetime. Since failure is inevitable at some point, it would mean that every man and woman who goes through the Endowment Ceremony has ultimately committed his or her soul to Lucifer.
By getting people to agree to something that they can never fulfill, along with a binding consequence, it’s fair to say that the whole ceremony is a Luciferian trick – designed to acquire unsuspecting souls.
Of course, most Mormons have no idea that they are participating in a Masonic Ritual where they’re actually making a deal with the devil!
“Although the Mormons generally do not realize the implications of their actions, they have implicitly aligned themselves with Lucifer’s teachings, and they have voluntarily taken on the emblem of his power….” – Joel B. Groat
But, What Does Child Sexual Abuse have to do with Luciferianism?
Well, according to Luciferian theology, it is believed that demonic spirits are passed from adults to children through vile sexual acts that often begin during infancy and continue throughout childhood.
In other words, the act of sexually abusing a child is the product of a satanic ritual where demonic spirits are passed down from one generation to the next, and dare I say that all acts of child sexual abuse have their roots in Satanism.
In a nutshell, we’re talking about a Demonic Inheritance through ritualistic child sexual abuse, and this is the real reason why pedophilia is so predominant in the LDS Church.
Moreover, sexually abused children often have multiple perpetrators; this can include one or both parents, various relatives, grandparents, neighbors, babysitters, scout leaders, church clergy, bishops, missionaries, etc…, and it is not uncommon for older children to sexually abuse younger siblings. And, let us not overlook, all the Mormon pedophile cults that exist in many LDS neighborhoods.
Make no mistake, we’re not talking about isolated incidents; we’re talking about a hidden agenda that is indoctrinated into all members of the LDS Church – with or without their knowledge or consent.
The book, “Satanic Ritual Abuse and Mormonism” by Jerald Tanner discuses over 125 cases of alleged ritual abuse:
“In some cases, these investigations involved hundreds of hours of investigation and evaluation. In addition, the Unit investigators have met with hundreds of citizens who claim to be victims of satanic, religious, physical or sexually motivated ritual crimes….None of the allegations…. have resulted in’ prosecutions except for the case of the Zion Society in Ogden… Investigator Mike King told KUTV that he and another investigator talked to ‘hundreds’ of victims who alleged they were raped, tortured, forced to perform horrible acts, brainwashed, saw babies murdered or were forced to participate in ritual murders.”
Of course, this is not the only investigation, and in fact, one of the most well-known investigations occurred between 1990 and 1991 when Bishop Pace interviewed about 100 different people in Salt Lake County, Utah – all swearing that they were part of a Mormon Satanic Cult.
Ultimately, in 1991, Bishop Glenn L. Pace wrote a confidential memorandum to Church authorities that became known as the “Pace Memorandum.” While the 100-page document exposed a satanic cult within the LDS Church, Bishop Pace presented substantial evidence showing that children were being ritualistically abused. Surprisingly, the memo was published by the great-great granddaughter of Brigham Young (one of the LDS founders) and her husband.
Here is a detailed excerpt from the Pace Memorandum (at the time of publication, only 60 people had been interviewed):
The Pace Memorandum Exposed the LDS Church
“Pursuant to the Committee’s request, I am writing this memorandum to pass along what I have learned about ritualistic child abuse. I have met with sixty victims. That number could be twice or three times as many if I did not discipline myself to only one meeting per week.
Of the sixty victims with whom I have met, all sixty individuals are members of the Church. Forty-five victims allege witnessing and/or participating in human sacrifice. The majority were abused by relatives, often their parents. All have developed psychological problems and most have been diagnosed as having multiple personality disorder or some other form of dissociative disorder.
Ritualistic child abuse is the most hideous of all child abuse. The basic objective is premeditated–to systematically and methodically torture and terrorize children until they are forced to dissociate. The torture is not a consequence of the loss of temper, but the execution of well-planned, well-thought out rituals often performed by close relatives. The only escape for the children is to dissociate. They will develop a new personality to enable them to endure various forms of abuse. When the episode is over, the core personality is again in control and the individual is not conscious of what happened.
Dissociation also serves the purposes of the occult because the children have no day-to-day memory of the atrocities. They go through adolescence and early adulthood with no active memory of what is taking place. Oftentimes they continue in rituals through their teens and early twenties, unaware of their involvement. Many individuals with whom I have spoken have served missions and it has not been until later that they begin to remember. One individual has memories of participating in rituals while serving as a full-time missionary.
The victims lead relatively normal lives, but the memories are locked up in a compartment in their minds and surface in various ways. They don’t know how to cope with the emotions because they can’t find the source. As they become adults and move into another environment, something triggers the memories, and, consequently, flashbacks and/or nightmares occur. One day they will have been living a normal life and the next they will be in a mental hospital in a fetal position. The memories of their early childhood are recalled in so much detail that they once again feel the pain that caused the dissociation in the first place.
There are two reasons why adults can remember with such detail events that happened in their past: First, the terror they experienced was so stark that it was indelibly placed in their mind. Second, the memory was compartmentalized in a certain portion of the mind and was not subjected to the dilution of experiences of ensuing years. When it is tapped, it is as fresh as if it happened yesterday.
The memories seem to come in layers. For example, the first memory might be of incest; then they remember robes and candles; next they realize that their father or mother or both were present when they were being abused. Another layer will be the memory of seeing other people hurt and even killed. Then they remember having seen babies killed. Another layer is realizing that they participated in the sacrifices. One of the most painful memories may be that they even sacrificed their own baby. With each layer of memory comes another set of problems with which they must deal.”
– End of excerpt – Pace Memorandum
So, what happened as a result of the Pace Memorandum?
Well, here’s a quote from the Utah State Task Force on Ritual Abuse:
“The May, 1992 report confirmed Pace’s findings. The main person involved in the subcommittee was Dr. Noemi P. Mattis who said that a Satanic ring “as secretive as the mafia” were hiding in the Mormon church’s hierarchy.”
Although the Utah State Task Force on Ritual Abuse confirmed the reports in the Pace Memorandum, no definitive actions were taken to end the abuse, and in fact, the LDS Hotline was created in 1995 to help cover-up all the continuing accusations of child sexual abuse.
So, basically, 30 years after the Pace Memorandum was first recorded, the satanic ritual abuse of children continues to go on behind closed doors…and still no one is stopping it!
Under a Dark Spell
Imagine that a dark spell is cast over the sexually abused child. As mentioned in the Pace Memorandum, the sexual abuse of a child is so horrific that most children dissociate during the trauma. When the child dissociates, his or her core personality detaches from consciousness, and because this allows for a split in personality, a new personality is created to handle the abuse each time it occurs.
And, believe it or not, the real purpose of the trauma is to intentionally create a split in personality so that the new personality can be possessed by a demonic spirit.
Therefore, whenever the child or adult dissociates, and the conscious mind is out of the way, the alternate personality can fulfill its own demonic agenda, and this means that when the child becomes an adult, he or she is “programmed” to unconsciously repeat the sexual abuse with his or her own children. And, yes, this means that it’s possible for sexually abusive parents to dissociate during the act so that they have no idea what they are doing, or who they are doing it to.
Since the abused and the abuser are both under a spell (and their bodies are possessed by demonic alters (aka altered personalities), they may have no conscious awareness or recollection of the abuse – and as a result, there may be no obvious signs of sexual abuse.
Furthermore, when the child dissociates during sexual abuse, any memories associated with the abuse are compartmentalized, and because this results in a specific type of amnesia, it’s common for people to forget all about childhood sexual trauma. No doubt, this explains why so many LDS members experience deep traumatic issues throughout life but cannot identify the real cause.
“Pedophilia violates our core being to the extent that our brains automatically respond to the trauma even if we don’t! Childhood sexual abuse is known to heighten suggestibility, decrease critical analysis and conscious choice, confuse gender, and perpetuate perversion.”
– Cathy O’Brien (author of “Trance Formation of America”)
While most LDS members are under a demonic spell and have no idea what they’re participating in, make no mistake, high level church officials know exactly what they’re doing.
In fact, according to True Ott:
“I have interviewed numerous individuals who fearfully tell of witnessing and/or participating in dark rituals underneath the LDS Temple in Salt Lake City. At first, I thought these individuals were psychologically imbalanced for their stories were so very bizarre that they could not have possibly been true. Imagine, the hierarchy sacrificing human infants, and even consuming human flesh during candlelit secret ceremonials? Now, however, I am more inclined to believe these individuals.”
The following statement was found in Wilford Woodruff’s Journal (president of the LDS Church from 1889 – 1898):
“Under the pulpit in the west End [of the SLC Temple] will be a place to Offer Sacrifices. There will be an Altar prepared for that purpose so that when any sacrifices are to be offered they should be offered there.’”
“To this truth seeker, this quote is very troublesome for a couple of fairly obvious reasons. The individuals I interviewed claimed to have seen such an altar, and claimed it was underneath the west end of the temple. According to this personal journal entry, such an altar apparently existed at one time, and in all likelihood yet exists today.”
Remembering Childhood Sexual Abuse
Oftentimes, we do not remember childhood sexual abuse until something randomly triggers a memory. For example, smelling a certain scent associated with the abuse, looking at childhood photos, or possibly, experiencing a new trauma.
Even when memories of abuse do start to surface, they often come up in brief, fragmented flashes, and we don’t process the full memory.
Although it’s natural to doubt memories of sexual abuse when they first flash before us, once we doubt or discount a memory, it slides back into the recesses of the mind and we immediately block further memories from surfacing.
Therefore, it’s important to trust your memories even if they’re just brief flashes, and in fact, the more you pay attention to the flashes, the more your memories will start to fill in. There might also be a certain feeling associated with a memory, and by going deeper into the feeling, it’s possible to retrieve the full memory.
Of course, the biggest obstacle in remembering childhood sexual abuse is in trusting our memories, especially if we’ve been taught to doubt our memories or if we fear that no one will believe us.
Plus, since it’s extremely common for a Mormon child to have multiple perpetrators, the enormity of the abuse can result in conflicting memories that blur together, causing both confusion and disbelief.
(By the way, did you know that, in the early 1990’s, the concept known as “False Memory Syndrome” was created to discredit the testimony of sexual abuse victims in court?)
As another obstacle to remembering child sexual abuse, many pedophiles are described as charming, cheerful and even likeable people, and because they don’t generally appear as the creepy pedophile archetype we might associate with child molesters, it’s easy for most pedophiles to hide in plain sight.
Moreover, if the abuser appears to be a nice, kind person in everyday life, it can be hard to believe that such a “good” person could do such horrible things!
Of course, trying to reconcile the “nice guy” with being a pedophile can cause cognitive dissonance, and if we can’t believe that our kind, loving father, teacher, uncle, bishop or sibling can be an abusive pedophile, we’ll probably discount any memories where sexual boundaries were crossed.
So, how can you reconcile the “nice guy” and the abusive pedophile as one in the same?
Well, it’s important to remember that virtually every pedophile was once a sexually abused child, and since there’s often a split in personality during the abuse, two or more personalities can reside within the same one body throughout a lifetime.
Therefore, the nice guy and the pedophile could represent two different personalities living in the same one body – with neither being aware of the other.
Nonetheless, when a formerly abused child continues to act out as an adult perpetrator, passing on a demonic spell through ritualistic sexual abuse, he or she is no less accountable.
As another interesting fact, many people have reported that they experienced flashbacks of satanic ritual abuse when they went through the Temple Endowment Ceremony at the LDS Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah. More specifically, memories of satanic ritual abuse were triggered when a sequence of certain words were spoken during the Endowment Ceremony. Apparently, these exact phrases were spoken during satanic rituals when these same people were children.
In response to these disturbing reports, the LDS Church changed the wording in the Endowment Ceremony. Very interesting!
Ending the Atrocious Cycle of Ritualistic Abuse within the LDS Church
No doubt, if we want to end the atrocious cycle of ritualistic child sexual abuse in the LDS community, the truth has to come out of the shadows and into the light, and while this requires complete honesty and full disclosure, it also requires getting past shame and secrecy.
Therefore, the best thing that anyone can do is speak up and tell the truth – and not stop speaking up until something is done.
So, even if no one believes you at first, keep telling the truth!
By speaking up and sharing information like this, you’re telling people that they can trust their memories, and they too can speak up. In fact, the major purpose for publishing this article is to open the space for sharing and healing, and therefore, please consider posting this article on social media.
The more people who speak up, the easier it will become for others……and therefore, if you are LDS, you might want to consider that many of your LDS friends, neighbors and community members have been sexually abused as children but are too afraid to speak up. In fact, the odds are good that the person sitting next to you in church was also sexually abused as a child.
As more and more victims start to come forward, and share their dark secrets, at some point, a threshold will be met, and in the blink of an eye, widespread momentum will turn into a movement that can’t be stopped or suppressed.
So, what should you do if you have been abused, you are being abused or you suspect someone you love is being abused?
If you’re a victim of childhood sexual abuse:
– Report any abuse directly to the police or a non-LDS crisis hotline, or at the very least, talk to a trusted non-LDS teacher or friend.
– Don’t report sexual abuse to Bishops or church clergy.
– Don’t call LDS Family Services.
– Don’t get bullied into submission by church members or clergy who want you to believe that pedophilia is not a crime.
– Don’t allow anyone to convince you that it’s your fault or shame you into feeling dirty or guilty. Anyone who tries to emotionally manipulate you is either knowingly part of the satanic cult or they’ve been brainwashed to keep you silenced.
– Since the Department of Child Services (DCS) and Child Protective Services (CPS) have both been connected to child trafficking and child sexual abuse, don’t contact either of these “social service providers.”
If someone tells you that they are being abused, or they were abused, always believe them. If you show any signs of doubt, you’ll only make them shut down and recount their experience.
If you suspect that your child is being sexually abused by a relative or community member, talk to your child without judgment. In fact, Mormon Mothers be warned, based on the high prevalence of pedophilia in the LDS community, there’s a good chance that one or more of your children are being sexually molested by someone you know. Therefore, let your kids know that they can confide in you and that you’ll believe whatever they tell you – and especially, make sure that they know that you’ll stand up for them no matter what! Therefore, notify the legal authorities immediately, and under no circumstances, contact your Bishop or church officials.
Moreover, all parents should teach their children how to say “no” to someone bigger than them – and mean it!
Last, but certainly not least, if you are currently abusing a child, please protect that child by immediately getting help outside the LDS Church.
Unfortunately, child sexual abuse occurs on such a grand scale in the LDS Community that in a large Mormon family, it’s possible that all or most family members have been sexually abused by parents, grandparents, older siblings, baby sitters, church clergy, community members, neighbors, etc…
Needless to say, many sexually abused children grow up to be perpetrators of their own children.
So, what do you do when several family members admit to being sexually abused as children – and now, as adults, many of them may be sexually abusing their own children?
In other words, what do you do when yesterday’s victims are today’s perpetrators?
No doubt, every adult is responsible for their own actions, and there is no excuse for sexually abusing a child. However, it’s also pivotal to understand that every LDS member has been a victim of a deceitful, satanic cult, and even though every adult should be held accountable for their actions, hopefully, there is space for healing and compassion – making it possible for both individuals and families to heal.
Certainly, this type of pervasive healing is a complicated process, especially since we’re essentially talking about millions of LDS followers, and while the path ahead might not be clear, some things are very clear….
First and foremost, the truth must be exposed, the perpetrators must be identified, and any children who are still being abused must be protected at all costs – and of course, measures must be taken so that the cycle of abuse is permanently stopped!
Furthermore, church leaders who knowingly participated in ritual satanic child abuse, or covered it up, should be held accountable through the legal system.
However, considering the grand scale of potential child sexual abuse cases in Utah alone, half the population in Utah could end up in prison, and therefore, the criminal system may not be the best solution for the individual, family or community.
Nonetheless, even if you’re hesitant about filing criminal charges, at the very least, contact an attorney who represents victims of sexual abuse in the LDS Church.
So, when the criminal system is not the answer, what is?
In many aboriginal tribes, when a tribe member has committed a crime, community members create a tribunal where everything is exposed – and there is no secrecy.
Therefore, LDS families or communities who have been affected by ritualistic abuse could create their own private tribunals.
To form a healing tribunal for your family or community:
- For a healing tribunal to be effective, the perpetrators must be willing to take full responsibility for their actions.
- Community members should hold perpetrators accountable for their actions (in a non-violent manner), and therefore, perpetrators should not be defended by community members in any way.
- In fact, members of the tribunal should not be allowed to defend the LDS faith or use it for any type of deflection.
- The tribunal space should be a safe place where everyone gets a chance to tell their story, speak their truth and be heard in a non-judgmental way. Everyone must commit to honesty and transparency.
- Instead of shaming and blaming victims, and causing even more trauma, victims should be nurtured and believed.
- In the tribunal space, victims should be able to honestly confront their abusers, and safely express their anger, rage, shame, etc…
- Family or community members must agree on the repentance and/or punishment – or decide to pursue a legal process.
- Professional help should be sought, both for personal inner healing, as well as family healing when appropriate. In fact, the family or community needs to create a series of plans that support individual and group healing for all involved, such as psychotherapy, rehabilitation, etc…
- Most importantly, great concern should be given to any children currently being abused, and therefore, in order to stop the abuse and prevent future abuse, the legal authorities should be immediately contacted, and the abuse should be treated as a serious crime.
- Strong measures should be taken to ensure that the abuse does not continue in any shape or form. Since pedophilia is a crime, it’s impossible to have consensual sex with a child, and therefore, any form of sexual participation with a child is illegal, including child pornography.
- For all abused children, professional help should be provided, and keep in mind that even infants store memories of sexual abuse – and often develop split personalities.
- While forgiveness can be the intention of the family or community, forgiveness cannot be forced. Oftentimes, there’s a long and messy healing process before forgiveness is achieved.
- Although it’s a personal choice, you might also want to consider having your name removed from the LDS Church database. By having your name in the database, you’re passively agreeing to the LDS Luciferian Agenda. (For how to remove your name from the LDS Temple, see link at the end of this article.)
- Everyone involved should learn how to set and respect boundaries!
First and foremost, your body and your life comprise a precious gift, and the way in which you honor this gift is by setting firm boundaries that protect you emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually.
Here are 7 life changing boundaries:
- You always have the right to say No!
- Never do something you don’t want to do because you want someone to like you.
- Never stay in an uncomfortable situation because it’s too awkward to get up and leave.
- If a potential perpetrator won’t take “no” for an answer, do whatever you need to do to protect yourself; yell, scream, threaten to call the police, and if need be, fight back physically.
- Don’t make any important choices if your heart and head don’t agree.
- Whenever you find yourself saying, “I don’t know,” it always means no!Repeat after me, “I don’t know, means no”!
- Finally, you have the right to decide who touches your body and how they touch it, and therefore, whenever you say “No,” make sure that the other person knows that you really mean it!!!! (Once again, children cannot consent to participating in any sexual acts – and pedophilia is illegal.)
LDS Church to Crumble: From Dust and Ashes, New Life Shall Be Born
After generations of the most extreme deception and abuse, the LDS Church is about to crumble, and while this might sound scary to many devout Mormons, it’s important to remember that the real strength, support and security lies not in the church, but in your true spiritual values and a direct connection to Source!
Although the process of healing and forgiveness can take time and be extremely challenging, we all have the power to rebuild family and community relationships, and by doing so, we’re investing in the well-being of future generations.
So, for everyone who has been under the dark spell of the Luciferian Demonic Society, it’s time to come out of the murky shadows and wake-up in the light!
Remember, on the path to healing our deepest wounds, love is our greatest strength!
LOVE WINS ALL!!!!

In 1860, The Devil in America by an author using the pen name “Lacon” was published exposing the “Devil of Mormonism” and claiming that the Devil himself created the religion through Joseph Smith.
In 1891, in Paris, a book called Le Diable au 19e siècle promised “definitive” revelations on Satanism and the Satanic nature of Freemasonry. Its main author, Leo Taxil, claimed that Freemasonry was controlled by a Satanic secret society called “Supreme Council of Palladism” of which the Mormon President John Taylor was a member.
In 1923, author René Guénon, in his book L’Erreur spirite stated that the Mormon church was being controlled by Satanic forces and ultimately by the Devil himself.
In 1980, the book Michelle Remembers by Canadian psychologist, Lawrence Pazder and his patient Michelle Smith, publicized information concerning ritualistic abuse and Satanism. Some of the survivors interviewed linked the abuse to Satanic cult groups started by Brigham Young and said that their parents were the main sources of abuse.

Pastor of Shilo Christian Center in Idaho Falls, ID came out with a meticulously detailed report on an investigation that he conducted into the Mormon temple ceremony, saying that it was deeply rooted in Satanic worship.
In 1985, a therapist by the name of Dr. Barbara Snow showed up in a little town called Lehi, Utah where she made satanic ritualistic abuse allegations against respected local church leaders, leading to one Mormon elder actually being convicted. She and other therapists worked to expose other Mormon satanic rings in Utah and Idaho but couldn’t get enough to land any convictions.
