Just shut up about this!

Ms. Bergman,

If it is out of line to make people aware, and remind them, that they and their church are supporting Michael Geilenfeld who as been accused of sexually abusing children under his care for over 30 years, then I will continue to be out of line.  I believe it is out of line to continue to support someone that has been accused of sexual abuse for over 30 years.

Perhaps What is in line is the following:
1. read the affidavit.
2. stop supporting Geilenfeld.
3. Tell your church mates to stop supporting Geilenfeld.
4. Help the victims of Geilenfeld, because supporting Geilenfeld maintains his ability to abuse children.
Perhaps this makes you mad.  It makes me mad that good people will do nothing to stop a person like Geilenfeld.
Forgive my persistence.  I am working for the children I have met at St. Joseph.  I believe the children.  I am trying to do something about it.

I don't know how you got my email and the emails of church members (by the way I moved out of the area years ago), but it is totally out of line for you to send this.  Do not ever, EVER contact me again.

Epiphany Lutheran Church continues to support Haitian Timoun Foundation and Michael Geilenfeld, 
even though you have been aware for years that Michael Geilenfeld has been accused of sexually abusing children in his care for over 30 years.  But you still don’t believe the children.  Your pastor apparently claims he has never heard of this problem.  Is this possible?  Your church has known about this for almost 10 years, probably more.  Your previous pastor, Rick Barger, continues to support Geilenfeld.  He continues to travel to Haiti in support of this alleged pedophile.     
When justice is finally brought to Michael Geilenfeld and others in his sphere, one question will stand out amongst others:  why did you continue to support Michael Geilenfeld and his orphanages with thousands of dollars when you knew he has been accused of sexually abusing children in his care for over 30 years.
Read Federal Agent Rod Khattabi’s affidavit - he interviewed some of the victims.  read what the boys at St Joseph Home for Boys have experienced at the hands of Michael Geilenfeld.  I urge you to Stop supporting Geilenfeld and Haitian Timoun Foundation immediately, and start working to help the victims.
I recommend your church make a public statement that you will stop supporting Michael Geilenfeld, and that your church begin work helping the many victims at Geilenfeld’s hands, and at the hands of others in Geilenfeld’s sphere.  And reach out to all churches who have supported this organization in the past.
Read the entire affidavit attached or at any of the following links:
Believe the children, and the children now grown to men.
