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:

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.”

    If I were you, I’d follow up with the members who are supporting Pasquariello. They can at least tell you if the laity knew if Longaker was telling the truth. I’ll be surprised if he was. Good for that school in Massachusetts.

    Thank you for printing this article.
    A couple of corrections: Pastor Paul Auckland (spelling); Faith Christian Academy in Sellersville (a ministry of Faith Baptist Church); I don’t think the congregation as a whole knew about John’s past when they brought him on as pastor…a few select people were contacted in 2016 (and chose to believe John’s version of events and support him).

    John either lied to his pastors in 1997 (when he admitted to what he did to Kelly) or he’s lying to his congregations now (when he’s telling them it’s all false accusations). Which is more probable???

    If the church chooses to keep John as their pastor (which would be unwise in my opinion), they at least need to make sure ALL attendees are aware of ALL of the accusations. His past should be part of his ongoing testimony.

Houston library had Alberto Garza, a registered child sex offender, read stories to children for Drag Queen Storytime

Houston library had Alberto Garza a registered child sex offender read stories to children for Drag

Conservatives know the LGBTQ community has their say in most aspects of life in America today. Their political and cultural influence is unquestionable and public organizations jump through hoops to appease the various groups. Many libraries have even embrace “Drag Queen Storytime” as a way to teach tolerance to children by allowing transvestites to read stories to children.

Houston Public Library is one such progressive public organization that has embraced the practice. Unfortunately, they didn’t do anything to protect the children that visit the library by allowing “Tatiana Mala Nina” to read for the children. The problem arose because”Tatiana” is actually Alberto Garza, a 32-year-old child sex offender.

My Take

Houston Public Library has apologized. Is that really enough? Mistakes happen, but there are certain situations and jobs in which extra special care must be taken. Our public libraries, which are often considered to be truly safe places and popular venues for children to learn, should be able to give a reasonable expectation to parents that registered child sex offenders are not given explicit access to children.

This is gross negligence. I may be in the minority on this one, but this is a terminable offense in my books. Someone’s head should roll.

Keep in mind I rarely call for anyone to be fired for a single offense, but this is literally the worst case scenario for a library administrator. When you give someone access to the children that come to the library, they cannot be convicted child sex offenders. That’s sort of a no-brainer.

Nothing will likely happen beyond the apology, but here’s hoping.

So many exceptions are made for “alternative lifestyles” for the sake of tolerance. But when this tolerance allows a convicted child sex offender to have access to small children, the exceptions have gone way to far. This is absolutely unacceptable.

Will you help revive the American Conservative Movement?

Muslim leader in Ilhan Omar’s district: ‘When David Duke of the Ku Klux Klan agrees with you…’

Muslim leader in Ilhan Omars district When David Duke of the Ku Klux Klan agrees with you

The controversy over Representative Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) antisemtic statements and Tweets have garnered the freshman Congresswoman criticism from some unlikely sources, including many of the Muslim leaders in her own community. They, along with Jewish Democrats in the district that voted for Omar, are uniting to condemn the way Omar has been handling her first few months in office.

“When David Duke of the Ku Klux Klan agrees with you, you’re not doing something right,” said Mohamed Ahmed, a Muslim activist who spoke with a panel of other local leaders.

The Congresswoman came under fire for her statements, but the response from Congress was muted. Rather than focusing on antisemitism or even including her name in an “anti-hate” resolution, they watered it down to include essentially any form of hate and refused to note Omar’s role as the catalyst for the resolution in the first place.

In other words, she got off without even getting a slap in the wrist.

But the words are still out there and thus far the antisemitic Congresswoman seems more concerned about other people’s reactions than whether or not her words were wrong. Apparently, she still sees no problem in what she said, but will refrain from saying them in public for political expediency.

My Take

As noted here before, one of the goals of the Democratic Party is to normalize antisemitism. While everyone seems to be focused on whether or not Omar is sorry for her words, nobody’s wondering why the Democratic Party as a whole seems to be perfectly fine with her feelings.

It’s getting harder and harder for conservative news outlets to speak out against such things. It’s not that there aren’t enough willing to say it, but between social media and search – the two primary traffic drivers for many conservative sites – they have to tone down their news so as not to get banned. This is just one of many reasons it’s so important for our readers to support us so we can continue bringing these stories to light.

The last thing we need is for someone like Ilhan Omar continuing to spread her feelings unabated. It’s clear the Democrats are unwilling to do something about it. Perhaps it’s time to help a moderate Democrat win a primary election against her. She was endorsed by the Justice Democrats, so it’s pretty clear how her radical ideologies emerged.

The world needs to know that Ilhan Omar doesn’t represent American perspectives. More importantly. voters in her district need to know this. We need to keep spreading the truth.

Aotearoa, The Land of the Long White Cloud, needs to step back and look at Christchurch objectively

Published

Aotearoa The Land of the Long White Cloud needs to step back and look at Christchurch objectively

On the 12th of September 2001, the United States began dealing with the unthinkable horror of the day before. After the terror attacks, members of Congress had stood on the Capitol steps and in unison sang God Bless America! Unfortunately, the Kumbaya moment was fleeting. Now in our 18th year after that event that united us, we are more polarized than anytime since the U.S. Civil War.

Day before yesterday, New Zealanders were shocked that their country too could become a target when they knew full well they didn’t deserve it. They had created an open society that welcomes anyone and everyone from anywhere and everywhere. Diversity they recognized to be their greatest asset.

So who would want to do them harm? A self-proclaimed white supremacist from across the Tasman in neighboring Australia chose the city of Christchurch on New Zealand’s South Island as the optimum place to massacre Muslims in their mosques during their Friday prayers.

I will submit to you that the combination of a soft target and optimum world media attention were significant factors in his decision. Kiwis were not expecting it. But, who would be?

I will not repeat the perpetrator’s name here to deny him the notoriety he seeks. Nor will I go into everything his manifesto may say. But, because New Zealand is focusing on some of his statements to determine why they were targeted and how to prevent such an occurrence in the future, there are some points that we need to consider.

This heinous hate crime and terror attack must be called exactly what it is. It allegedly was done to make a point about anti-immigration and perpetuation of Eurocentric society. However, in my estimation, it has accomplished precisely the antithesis of that stated objective.

The wanton slaughter of 50 Muslims at last count with at least an equal number wounded beyond that has overnight changed the narrative worldwide. American politicians are jumping on the bandwagon to express their solidarity with adherents of Islam against Muslim victimhood in our own country and elsewhere.

As horrendous and unforgivable as the events in Christchurch are, they do not negate the worldwide narrative that reveals thousands of Christians being slain in their churches in Nigeria. Nor Kenyan Christians targeted and killed if they cannot or will not recite the Islamic shahada by neighboring Somalis. Coptic Christians whose ancestors predated Islam in Egypt being persecuted and killed. A Pakistani Christian woman imprisoned for blasphemy by Muslims who refused to drink water from a cup her unclean lips had touched.

None of these other events have gotten significant world attention. But Christchurch is now a household word for everyone everywhere.

As one who has long been in touch with Kiwis for 30 years or more, monitored security threats in their country and throughout the Pacific Basin, having an admiration and respect for the good people of New Zealand, the events that have unfolded recently absolutely break my heart. I am saddened but honestly not totally surprised.

Law enforcement in New Zealand is respected and respectable. They liaise with counterparts throughout Oceania as well as in North America. The problem is New Zealand politicians who carry political correctness to a level that would make American politicians inside the DC Beltway envious.

Radio New Zealand has been my primary source of breaking events in the Pacific for many years. Even when the Pacific Islands Report from the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii ceased publishing a few years ago, they recommended RNZ which often covers even current and former U.S. territories better than our own American media. That’s why I have relied almost exclusively on RNZ for relevant updates regarding events in the aftermath of the Christchurch Massacre.

Now let’s go back about 48 hours and consider the developments as they occurred chronologically. Not so much the attack itself but moreover the reactions to it both in New Zealand and here in the United States.

One of the more troubling, though not unanticipated, responses of New Zealand politicians is to censor any kind of online expression which they don’t like. But what is over the line when it comes to free exchange of ideas? Who are the authorities and what are their criteria for censorship? Only the United States has our 1st Amendment protections of free speech and even those are under assault by today’s Democrats.

Politicians in Wellington should understand that censorship will only further polarize their own citizens. If they do not have a legal conduit to share their beliefs in social media, what extra-legal means will they find? Censorship invariably creates more problems than it solves.

The other to be expected knee-jerk reaction of liberal politicians is gun control. The perpetrator of Christchurch himself declared that he wanted to cause a 2nd Amendment rift here in the United States over this very issue. This is another indication that the Aussie was not just attacking New Zealand, but the USA and the world. Certainly not just Muslims ~ they were just a convenient scapegoat.

Once they have banned guns, will they turn their attention to box cutters, pressure cookers, knives and vehicles that run people down? Where does it stop? The gun does not pull its own trigger. The evil in the gunman’s heart is the problem that nobody seems to want to address.

New Zealand Police originally indicated as reported by media sources that multiple gunmen were believed involved. There were suggestions of a cell of perhaps 3 to 5 people and even allegations that perhaps 10 or more could have been implicated. One RNZ report, even without detail, lent suspicion that a nearby hospital was also targeted.

Within 24 hours or so after the original incident, a 180° turn has been made and the perpetrator is said to have acted alone. So, did somebody in authority over-react to begin with? Or, are there other suspects still at large that they don’t want to talk about?

Why did they suggest Jews not attend their own Sabbath Services in their synagogues the day after the attack on Muslim mosques? If the perpetrator is in custody and if Muslims were the only object of his hatred, then protecting Jewish synagogues makes no sense whatsoever if there was no such threat.

“The national security threat level has been increased from low to high for the first time in NZ’s history.” A related search was reportedly conducted 225 miles from Christchurch in Dunedin. All this for a lone perpetrator now in custody?

Even here in Hawaii, the Honolulu Police Department and the FBI reportedly contacted the Muslim mosque in Manoa to express their solidarity and to ensure additional security measures would be implemented. Nothing in the scenario in Christchurch suggests that a mosque near the University of Hawaii would become such a target.

A more objective analysis might be that retaliation could be taken to avenge the attack in New Zealand. But I haven’t seen any warning that synagogues and/or churches here in Hawaii should be on the alert. So why alert the mosque if they had no specific threat information?

Christchurch has under 1/4 the population of Auckland. The city name likely figures into its selection for this atrocity. Be it anti-Muslim or false flag, somebody wants to tear NZ apart.

The people to whom the perpetrator allegedly attributes his inspiration seem to totally run the gamut of the political and ethnic spectrum from U.S. President Donald Trump to Norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik to black American conservative Candace Owens. But he’s a white supremacist, right? Let’s look a little further into that as well.

“The attack had been planned for two years and … New Zealand was not the original choice for the attack. [The perpetrator] chose firearms for the affect [sic] it would have on … the politics of United States.”

“In the post, the accused said he was visiting Pakistan for the first time. He called it an incredible place filled with the most earnest, kind hearted and hospitable people in the world.” This simply does not compute! Persecution of religious minorities in Pakistan is among the worst anywhere on the planet. How does this contribute to the suspect becoming a white supremacist who slaughters Muslims?

Whenever a Muslim kills Christians, everybody wants to claim it’s due to mental illness and not anything to do with Islam. But such conflicting statements by the man who shed so much blood in Christchurch deserve to be looked at from a psychological and mental perspective. Why did he go to Pakistan and view it through rose-colored lenses? White supremacy appears more of a crutch to fulfill his own perverted fantasies.

It’s more than just irony that the mosque attack occurred in a city named Christchurch. It’s probably deliberate. An alleged white supremacist chose such a locale. So could a Muslim offended by the city name. In this, they’d have common cause. Both wonder why Muslims chose to live there.

In this time of shock and introspection, Kiwis are asking how could such hatred be spawned by someone in their midst. But, in fact, it was not someone who developed these views in their midst. It was a man from another country who chose their country as a soft target for maximum media exposure and global impact.

New Zealanders need to realize that love and acceptance of others and a strong defense and security posture are not mutually exclusive concepts. There is absolutely nothing any of us can do to preclude someone with evil in their heart from wanting to do us harm. We have to be proactive in anticipating threats and able to intervene and stop the act before it occurs.

Acceptance of others is never unconditional. It must be conditioned upon their willingness to reciprocate and not seek to impose their will upon us or to do us harm in any way. That applies to white supremacists. That applies also to jihadis. Both are a danger to decent freedom-loving people.

It is not surprising to read reports of panic buying of firearms in New Zealand before the government can impose draconian gun control measures. Once again, as with censorship, you do not want to further polarize your nation. The shooter in Christchurch wanted to tear your country and my own country apart. We must not let such evil intentions and actions succeed. If you prohibit free speech and prevent people from being able to defend themselves, you are just sowing the seeds of future discontent.

While I’m tempted to outline the prevailing world situation in which Christians are the persecuted targets in countries ruled by either Islam or Communism, we shall let just two brief anecdotes suffice in this context.

2017 Palm Sunday church bombings in Alexandria [Egypt] killed 45 people and was all but ignored by the Western media and politicians. That was just two years ago. But you can rest assured Christchurch will not disappear from public consciousness that quickly. More correctly, a Muslim on Christian attack in Egypt never really attracted any real attention to begin with. As with the genocide in Nigeria, the world just yawns.

An article dated today published by Gatestone Institute is entitled, Iran Inches Closer to its Goal: “Wipe Israel off the Map”. This helps demonstrate that Islam is more often the perpetrator rather than the victim. NZ’s neighborhood is far safer than Israel’s, but on the same planet!

I have focused mostly today on the reaction within New Zealand itself. There will be repercussions in the United States as well. As I mentioned, our own politicians are jumping on the bandwagon to paint Muslims as the victim of hate crimes. But, Christchurch was both an aberration and a total exception to the rule of what has been going on for at least a generation all over the world.

This has been just a snapshot of a developing story. Future reports, particularly actions taken by New Zealand authorities in the wake of Christchurch (which unfortunately may become a one word symbol of terror), will influence interpretations for sure and understanding if we’re lucky.

I don’t wish to offend anyone, certainly not our great Kiwi friends, but I must take that risk in order to admonish Aotearoa to emerge from its cocoon. There is no neutrality in the face of evil which has many masks. Be strong!

Will you help revive the American Conservative Movement?
