An interesting rant made by Trishasaurus on the group page recently..
Over the past 24 hours there has been many allegations made about my admins as well as myself on different blogs, groups and forums. I would like to address some of these allegations.
1. What our group is about. The group was created by myself in August 2012. It was not created by anyone other than me. At the time that I created the group, I was working with Jocelyn Zichterman is obtaining information on Jack Schaap and the allegation of his sexual affair with a teen. Within two weeks of forming the group and working with Jocelyn, I severed all ties with her. I absolutely respect the efforts she has made to forge her way in this cause. However, I made a decision that was in the best interest of our group to stay aligned with our goals for victims.
2. I attended Hyles Anderson College for two years. I took courses in their “Marriage and Motherhood” classes for those two years. I DO NOT have a degree in Marketing from Hyles Anderson College and my resume does not reflect that.
3. I was a member of First Baptist Church beginning in 1990 for a number of years. I joined First Baptist as I drove from Illinois to Indiana every Sunday for church. I never removed my membership from the church when I stopped attending as it wasn’t worth my time to do so.
4. Cecil and Susie Ballard were my Youth Pastor and his wife in the church I was raised in. Susie raped a boy in our youth group and became pregnant by him. I was 15 or 16 years old at the time. Cecil and Susie were shipped off to Central Baptist Church in Baton Rouge, LA. It broke all of the teens hearts. We were all angry. There was nothing we could do… and we did not know what to do. I was angry for many years at what she did. It wasn’t until 2011 that I FINALLY realized I could do something…and I told the story. I was never “in love” with Cecil Ballard as I am being accused of. He was my youth pastor and I respected him. I loved him as my youth pastor. And while I am sickened by decisions he has made, I still have a soft spot in my heart for him. He helped me tremendously as a teen.
5. I have 3 children and I never have abandoned my children. Nor will I speak about my children. And the person who made allegations about my children is a disgusting, vial, toxic, evil human being. My attorney will be taking care of her.
6. When I left Illinois, I moved to get away from the pain. The pain of the IFB. There is much more to it than that, but the root of it was IFB…and I was able to begin my healing process to do so. But there is MUCH more to the story.
7. The Do Right Hyles Anderson Group is not a religious organization. We are people who were part of the IFB religion and understand the mind set and we have a compassion for victims. We will stand by our victims. We accept Pastors, atheists, IFB, religious people, all sorts into our group. We are not defined by religion…we are defined by justice, empathy and shedding light on corruption.
8. I am in a slow, methodical process of starting a foundation called “Fundamental Revolution”. The website is not completed. It has information on the website as placement only. As we continue to move forward, we will add all the accurate information. We are continuing to move forward and I will never discuss where we are in the process.
9. The recordings of Eddie Lapena are still in my possession. I have emailed the recordings to a few trusted individuals. I
have also released a few of the recordings to a magazine who is writing an article about the corruption at FBC. At this point, I will not release the recordings on the wall because of people who run blogs who want it so badly. I refuse to allow them to hear what is said. But it will all be in the article that is coming out in January 2013.
10. I chose my admins based on trust. We all have one another’s backs. Period. It was not based on religious beliefs. They each are amazing people who I admire. They have beautiful hearts. And I will take a bullet for each one. And honestly, I do not know what any of their religious beliefs are… don’t care. I know their hearts and souls.
a. Jeremy Lape , while no longer an admin is one of the most kind, generous souls. He is passionate and stands up for what he believes. I have never met Jeremy in person, but we have spent hours on the phone, texting and PM’ing… He cares. Truly cares. He is trust worthy and takes each person’s story to heart.
b. Annette Ingersoll, is the newest admin. She is an extension of myself. She is my beautiful friend. She has such a huge
heart and her heart breaks for each victim. She has taken her story and not allowed it to be her label. She has a tender heart. Loving. Devoted wife and mother. And while we’ve not met in person, I absolutely adore her. Annette and I speak daily, she knows me better than most people. She’s seen me happy, angry, sad and broken. I trust her with my heart.
c. Robin Stemberg, was the first admin in the group. I’ve known Robin since college. We have met and her kindness and empathy is something we all should try emulate. Robin has been a crucial part of our group, our cause and showing a beautiful way to show grace. Robin is courageous and stronger than she even knows. She is a loyal friend and she wants justice.
d. Jason Dye, while no longer an admin as he is busy with his career and all the additional out reach work he does is still part of our group. He is one of the most light hearted, positive and hysterical admins. He keeps us laughing. He takes tense moments and gives us reason to laugh. His support is felt although he is not as involved as he once was. I couldn’t live without his sarcasm.
e. Ty Duncan…I get teary just thinking about him. I’ve never had the privilege to meet Ty. But I can honestly say, I’ve never known a more loving soul. He has been a cornerstone of our group. He’s been a rock for me. When the admins are going through rough times, he’s there to offer support and love. He is one of the best men I have ever known. And one day I look forward to giving him a big hug.
f. Stephanie Davies …She was the second admin who joined me to help victims. She has been an extension of myself. She
is my sister. She is my soul. She has been through hell and back with me trying to help others. She is a survivor who has given her time, money, and heart for all of you…for us. There is nothing I won’t do for Stephanie. I will protect her. I will fight for her. I will always be there for her.
confirmations are made.
Another "pat me on the back" rant..
MEMBERS>>>>I am working on our behalf today. I have several meetings that can make a difference for us all. These meetings will continue to lay the foundation for a better tomorrow. These meetings will help in our cause to shed light on abuse, corruption and control in IFB churches.
This week someone asked me when I can finally wash my hands and walk away from all this. “When will you begin to have a life again”. I told this person…”I’m never walking away”. This is exactly why I’ve gone through the things I have in my life…it’s for this moment to stand with you. And, I will stand with you all for the rest of my life. I will continue to use my voice on your behalf, for our children’s futures.
It’s important that we focus on the mission at hand. That mission is to tell our stories. To stand for what is right and true. To shed light on IFB corruption. To report abuse. To empower others. To point the way towards healing. And to protect future generations.
I want each of you to know that I care… I walk a fine line in this group. While you & I may not agree with all that takes place in the group, the group is essential. I started this because I care. I have put everything on the line because I care. I take the ridiculous attacks because the desire to help you burns deep within me. And I will continue because there is no other option for me… every single one of you matter. And if we continue to make changes and help someone heal, then it’s worth this fight. Thank you for standing together…as one. Trisha LaCroix
