Affidavit shows church that advocated for pedophile is headed by sexual predator

Christ instructs us to be as wise as serpents and innocent as doves; not dumb as bricks and guilty as hell.

“Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves; therefore be shrewd as serpents and innocent as dove.”

Matthew 10:16

In May of 2016, 30 members of Fellowship Bible Church filed into a Rutland, Vermont courtroom to show support for convicted child molester Joseph Angelo Pasquariello.

Church members support molester

https://www.rutlandherald.com/news/church-members-support-molester/article_f73687b6-de50-5afc-9b97-5ea9cbdbe5dc.htmlAccording to court documents, Pasquariello was charged in 1994 with one count of aggravated sexual assault on a child and two counts of lewd and lascivious conduct with a child; he was also charged with an additional count of aggravated sexual assault on a child in a separate charge. In a 1995 plea agreement, he pleaded guilty to felony aggravated sexual assault on a child, with the other three counts dismissed.

Pasquariello was sentenced in Rutland criminal court by Judge Francis McCaffrey to 10 to 20 years, all suspended but four years to serve.

In 2004, his probation was dismissed.

Pasquariello, with his fellow congregants of Fellowship Bible Church members by his side, sought the expungement of his criminal offender as a sex offender expunged from the record.

His request was denied.

New information has just come to light showing: Fellowship Bible Church is, itself, headed by a convicted sexual predator.

That predator is Pastor John Longaker.

And I have obtained the court records which prove it. (documents below)

To make matters worse, it now appears Fellowship Bible Church members were fully aware of Longaker’s criminal conviction yet chose to appoint him as pastor regardless.

Longaker groomed a 14-year-old student

The early details of John Longaker’s sexual predations first broke on Oct 10, 2018, in a piece at The Wartburg Watch.

It began in the early 1990’s, when Kelly Haines was just 14 years of age. John Longaker, who was in his late 30’s, taught at the school Kelly attended: Faith Baptist Christian School in Pennsylvania.

Longaker’s victim recalled how she was groomed by the man she once trusted.

My first recollection of anything different was in the fall of 94 during softball season. I was on the bus going to softball practice. He coached the baseball team but they would drop the softball team at their field and then went on to their field.  John Longaker always tried to sit in the seat behind me on the bus.

One day while we were driving I felt John Longaker’s foot rub up against the back of my leg. I wasn’t sure if it was an accident. The next day I felt it again and I turned around and saw John smiling…

Then came the daily “counseling sessions” during which, “those foot and back touches to brushing up against me and feeling my breast. When he was “hard” he would rub against my leg or he take my hand and touch it. He frequently touched under my clothes.”

The abuse progressed from there.

It continued until she graduated: 4 long years.

Longaker plays the victim

Before I share the court records proving John Longaker’s guilt, and the grotesque details of his crimes documented therein, you should hear from the good pastor in his own words.

After the initial story broke, The Wartburg Watch was given permission to publish a written comment from Pastor Longaker, which TWW did so only a few days ago, on October 29, 2018.

In his seven-paragraph response, John Longaker plays the victim and denies his guilt.

Speaking of the young girl he once molested for four years, now a woman, he stated:

“Kelly has tried to destroy me.”

“Kelly was troubled before I ever began counseling her. (Maybe troubled by other sexual encounters?)”

Of his Fellowship Bible Church parishioners, Pastor John Longaker asserts:

“They are aware of the charges and they are aware that I pled guilty. I have offered to resign on three separate occasions and my offer was rejected.”

Prior to invoking his wife’s opinion as proof of his innocence, Longaker attempted to shield himself from guilt by exploiting two traumatized women:

“One of the members who knows was a woman who was sexually abused as a child. Another who knows was raped twice as a young woman. They both love me and trust me. I believe that I have helped both of them very much.  One I was able to aid in counselling her out of her bulimia and suicide attempts.  She continues to make significant progress.”

The fact that his sexual molestation of a young girl occurred during his “counseling sessions” didn’t seem to have occurred to Longaker, as he discussed his “counseling” of these two women.

Finally, the benevolent pastor then wrapped up his series of tropes by hammering a nail into his own coffin:

“Even if I did the horrible things that Kelly said I did, I have been forgiven.”

Count documentation of Longaker’s charges

According to a Bucks County, Pennsylvania court documents from 1998, John Longaker was charged with the following:

  • INVOLUNTARY DEVIATE SEXUAL INTERCOURSE
  • AGGRAVATED INDECENT ASSAULT
  • ENDANGERING WELFARE OF CHILDREN
  • INDECENT ASSAULT
  • CORRUPTION OF MINORS

WARNING: EXPLICIT SEXUAL LANGUAGE FOLLOWS

The details of Longaker’s predation are found in the affidavit attached to the initial filing:

“…kissing, fondling, and sucking/kissing of her breasts and vaginal area, mutual masturbation, digital penetration and oral/genital contact of one another.”

“…she would masturbate LONGAKER’S penis until ejaculation and that sometimes he would swallow his own ejaculate.”

“…these sexual contacts occurred inside vacant classrooms at the school, inside LONGAKER’S automobile while traveling to various locations, and at LONGAKER’S home…”

Court records show teacher John Longaker admitted guilt

By 1996, John Longaker was teaching at a different Christian school, this one in Massachusetts: Twin City Baptist Temple.

Once Pastor Aukland of Faith Baptist Christian School, where the molestation had occurred, learned of the accusations against John Longaker, Pastor Aukland contacted Twin City Baptist Temple to inform them of the possible sexual predations perpetrated by Longaker.

According to the court affidavit, the school leadership of Twin City Baptist Temple took action:

“PASTOR BURKE subsequently confronted LONGAKER in the presence of PASTOR HENRY and BILL SENEY…”

“PASTOR BURKE stated that LONGAKER admitted having a sexual relationship with [redacted – the victim’s name] while at the Faith Christian School in Pennsylvania.”

“LONGAKER told them he began this relationship with [redacted – victim’s name] when she was around 14 years of age and lasted until she graduated.”

The benevolent teacher, John Longaker, was arrested.

Ex-teacher Charged In Sex Case * Officials Say The Former Sellersville Schoolteacher Had An Affair With Girl, 14.

http://articles.mcall.com/1997-10-18/news/3176918_1_rubenstein-hileman-indecent-assault“A former teacher at the Faith Baptist Christian School in Sellersville was charged Friday with having sex with one of his former students in the school, in his car and in his former Quakertown home from the time the girl was around 14 until she was 18.”

District Attorney, Alan M. Rubenstein, called Longaker’s crimes, “especially harmful and egregious,” and further stated:

“He is in a special position of trust, confidence and supervision,” Rubenstein said. “She relies on him for good judgment, and he takes immediate advantage of that … and it all occurs in the shadow of the steeple of the church.”

Avoiding a lifetime on the sex offender registry, trusted teacher, John Longaker, pleaded guilty to two of the charges against him:

  • ENDANGERING THE WELFARE OF CHILDREN
  • CORRUPTION OF MINORS

However, as court records show, Longaker wasn’t able to avoid jail time.

He was sentenced to 11 ½ – 23 months in prison for his predatory crimes against a young girl.

Longaker teaching again

The Fellowship Bible Church’s profile on Pastor Longaker states:

“Pastor John has served at Fellowship Bible Church since 2010 as pastor after serving the previous 8 years as Sunday School teacher and a church officer.”

Thus, only 3 years out of his prison sentence for his sexual predation of Kelly Haines, John Longaker was teaching Sunday School at Fellowship Bible Church.

He had also worked his way up to Church Officer at that time.

And, according to John Longaker himself, his congregants knew about his criminal conviction, promoted him anyway, and then refused his offers of resignation on three separate occasions.

I reached out to Fellowship Bible Church for to inquire about the truth of Longaker’s claims. My email follows:

Date: 10/31/18 2:40 PM (GMT-06:00)
To: castletonfbc@comcast.net
Subject: Court Affidavit – Your Comment Requested
Good afternoon, 
My name is Paige Rogers and I write for NOQReport.com. 
I am contacting you regarding John Longaker’s e-mailed remarks (published by the Wartburg Watch) pertaining to John Longaker’s criminal sexual conduct with a minor. 
I have obtained copies of the court documents and will be publishing an article about John Longaker and how he rose to prominence in your church.
I will be publishing parts of the court documents I have obtained. 
There has been at least one comment on John Longaker’s published e-mail at TWW by an individual claiming to attend your church. Referring to himself as “Jax,” he defended the appointment of John Longaker at pastor.
In John Longaker’s published e-mail (at TWW), he indicated that church members were aware of his crimes, and that he has offered to resign on three separate occasions.
Is this accurate? 
Were the court documents reviewed prior to assigning John Longaker the positions of Sunday School Teacher and Church Officer?
Were his crimes known prior to his assignment as Pastor?
If yes, who knew? 
Was the congregation consulted? 
Additionally, the court documents I have obtained show inconsistencies with John Longaker’s e-mail published by TWW. 
Was the church aware that John Longaker admitted guilt to Paster Burke and Bill Seney of Twin City Baptist Temple in Lunenberg, Mass?
If you would like to ask questions regarding the information found within the court documents or wish to comment, you may contact me by e-mail or telephone (XXX-XXX-XXXX). [redacted for publication]
Thank you,
Paige Rogers

I also left a voicemail at the telephone number provided to me for a Mr. Tracey Grieder, who is a purported to be an elder of Fellowship Bible Church, but I have received no response. As such, I was unable to confirm his relationship within Fellowship Bible Church.

I was able to reach Mr. Don Wood, also purported to be an elder at Fellowship Bible Church, by telephone. After introducing myself and indicating he had been identified as an elder, Mr. Wood briskly interrupted:

“Tell Kelly to stop the nonsense. Okay? Goodbye. And don’t call again. Otherwise, I’ll report you.”

He then hung up.

I would like for the record to show that Pastor Longaker’s victim, Kelly Haines, in no way solicited my attempt at contacting Mr. Wood, nor Mr. Grieder. To the contrary, I sought to verify information for this piece and allow members of Fellowship Bible Church to comment and clarify.

As it stands, no elders  have come forward to contradict the published testimony of Pastor John Longaker published at the Wartburg Watch.

Thus, as it stands now and until indicated otherwise, the leadership and/or the membership of Fellowship Bible Church have failed to follow Biblical requirements for church leadership (1 Timothy 3; Acts 6:1-6). If that is the case, is it really any wonder that six years after the knowing elevation of a sexual predator to the status of Pastor, the congregants of Fellowship Baptist Church would advocate for a violent child molester (church member or not)?

Perhaps the bigger question is, “Just how many sexual predators is Fellowship Bible Church concealing between her walls?”

“And whoever shall cause to stumble one of these of the little ones believing in Me, it is better for him that a heavy millstone should be hung around his neck, and he be sunk in the depth of the sea.”

Matthew 18:6

Justin Trudeau’s blackface and the world the left is trying to create

Justin Trudeaus blackface and the world the left is trying to create

There’s a reason we’re only hearing now about progressive superhero Justin Trudeau’s blackface incident. The Prime Minister of Canada has been in the public eye for some time, but when he first entered politics, the progressive charge he’s trying to lead hadn’t really picked up the steam it has today. The people weren’t “woke” enough to go after anything and everything from the past that are condemned today.

Now, we’re ready. Any monuments of people from the past who participated in slavery must be taken down and erased. Any mascots that could offend someone are removed and replaced by politically correct variations. And anyone who wore “blackface” in their past, even at times when people were more sane about the use of makeup to pretend to be someone else, must be racists.

They must be. Otherwise, every element of the left’s current worldview is brought into question.

But Trudeau us unlikely to face the same backlash that a conservative in the same situation would face. That’s the narrative that’s quietly being spread – progressives get a pass while conservatives must be prosecuted in the court of public opinion. This is why Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is still in power. It’s why nothing is going to happen to Trudeau the way it would happen if a conservative were caught doing the same thing 18 years ago.

Progressives aren’t trying to create a world that is more understanding of our differences, despite their proclamations otherwise. They’re trying to create a world in which their sensibilities are condemning when a conservative is in the hot seat but forgiving when it’s a progressive facing the same situations. They want to take away guns, as long as they’re given a pass to keep their own firearms. They say words are violence, then they use their own words to attack others while feeling justified in their heinous speech.

It’s a world in with a group proclaiming to be anti-fascist uses their own variation of personal fascism and intimidation to quash the voices of anyone on the right… or even the center.

The leftist’s dream society of socialism and open borders crumbles when the rules they want applied to others are applied to them. This is why Bernie Sanders and other progressive leaders scream about socialism while elevating their own wealthy status through capitalism.

We live in a world that is becoming increasingly opposed to the truth. Even churches are ignoring sound doctrine, replacing the teachings of the Bible with anecdotes to promote their self-help agenda.

When an organization that tries to prevent as many women as possible from becoming a parent can call itself Planned Parenthood, we see where society is heading. When its supporters call opposition to their cause hateful bigots while ignoring the organization’s founder was a self-proclaimed hateful bigot, we know we’re heading in the the wrong direction.

It permeates across all aspects of American society and the leftist’s approach to promoting their agenda. They change words to have different meanings. Today, they don’t want a differentiation between legal and illegal immigrants. They want all of us classified as immigrants so they can say President Trump’s policies are anti-immigrant instead of the reality that his policies work against illegal immigration.

All of this circles back around to the reality that Justin Trudeau will not face the same consequences for his “insensitive” portrayal 18 years ago that a conservative would. Our emerging post-truth society allows the left to see what they want to see.

Shame: Teens recorded fatal knifing of Khaseen Morris instead of helping him

Shame Teens recorded fatal knifing of Khaseen Morris instead of helping him

Dozens of Long Island teenagers whipped out their phones an recorded the stabbing of one of their classmates instead of helping him, local police have reported.

Khaseen Morris, 16, was stabbed once in the chest while onlookers recorded the attack. The Oceanside High School senior had supposedly walked a girl home from a party the nigh before and was sought by the girl’s ex-boyfriend. Reports indicate somewhere between 50-70 teens witnessed the attack with many of them recording it instead of intervening.

Morris was transported to a local hospital where he died.

Opinion

Kids do stupid things. They always have. But this recent trend of recording events rather than acting on them stems from a cultural and spiritual disregard for humanity. Events such as these happen outside of reach once mobile devices become the go-to. The response is not to participate or help. It’s to record it. Many teens can’t imagine being at an “event” without having digital record of it occurring.

This shift in mentality is isolated to those who have grown up separated from the real world by the devices they carry constantly. They might forget their keys or wallet when going somewhere, but they never forget their phones. These devices have become a part of us, very much like a technological extension similar to the cyborg technology found in science fiction. But this is willful. Nobody is forced to carry their phones everywhere. We do it willingly.

What does that say about society when someone is murdered right in front of dozens of people whose first reaction is to start recording the attack? How have Americans become so lost that the notion of helping our fellow men, women, and children is an instinct that has been superseded by the need for something to share with friends on social media? It’s sickening.

These kids and their parents should be ashamed.

Quote

“Kids stood there and didn’t help Khaseen. They’d rather video. They videoed his death instead of helping him.” – Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick

Final Thoughts

Much of American society has become observers, recorders, and posters instead of doers. Young people in particular have grown up with faster reactions to their smartphones than to the world around them. This must change.

Thoughts and prayers are exactly what we need

Thoughts and prayers are exactly what we need

One of the more disturbing developments in recent years is the growing attacks on thoughts and prayers in the wake of tragedy. Not only are more and more shouting that thoughts and prayers are “not enough” in the wake of tragedy. Many are also doubling-down on the idea by calling thoughts and prayers an excuse to do nothing.

This assertion not only strikes me as wrong-hearted but fundamentally in ignorance of two honest observations.

Firstly, those who attack thoughts and prayers ignore the necessity to grieve and the resolve that arises in the hearts of those who mourn.

Offering thoughts and prayers provides a message of unity and compassion. It’s a unified message that the victims of tragedy do not stand alone. The time where we offer thoughts and prayers is a time where we can set aside our petty differences and unite in mourning.

Further, it has often been my observation that those who offer heartfelt and fervent thoughts and prayers are the ones which arise from their knees, wipe the tears from their eyes, and provide the most energetic actions towards the support of others.

Mocking thoughts and prayers is mocking the humanity of those who are overcome with the grief of a heart-rending tragedy. It’s to mock the natural response of caring, faithful citizens. Quite honestly, it boils my blood that anyone would mock or belittle a quiet, tearful prayer, a lit candle in the window, or messages on social media that are, for once, positive, supportive, and contemplative.

Secondly, the attitude of mocking the thoughtful and prayerful is yet another example of the degradation of what holds us together as a society. It is a manifestation of our nation’s rotting core of community and brotherhood.

Ultimately, it is a demonstration of the same societal decay that is itself responsible for the lost souls of those who not only perpetrate horrible crimes, like mass shootings, but who resolve to end their problems by ending their life or escape their hollow realities through substance abuse.

We need a more thoughtful and more prayerful society. If we are ever going to get to the bottom of what is causing people to grow so cold in their hearts to kill others or so fallen from hope to kill themselves, we must rediscover the compassion and empathy that can alone save our families, our communities, and our nation from abject dysfunction.

Thoughts and prayers are not keeping us from solutions to the problem. Thought and prayers are the only true beginning to real solutions for the problems that ail our country.
