Progress Report on Our New Book – “Unholy Charade”
UPDATE Sept 2021: I have come to believe that Jeff Crippen does not practise what he preaches. He vilely persecuted an abuse victim and spiritually abused many other people in the Tillamook congregation. Go here to read the evidence. Jeff has not gone to the people that he spiritually and emotionally abused. He has not apologised to them, let alone asked for their forgiveness.
Jeff Crippen and Rebecca Davis are pleased to report that Unholy Charade is halfway completed and we are tentatively aiming for completing the rest of the manuscript by July and seeing it published in the fall. We want to thank everyone who has contributed their own stories of abuse and encourage all of you to share even more. Specifically, right now we need additional illustrations for the following topics, though we are very glad to receive accounts of other tactics as well. We cannot promise to include every single account submitted, at least in this present project, but we plan to write more books after this and will keep everything submitted on hand.
Remember, this is a very real opportunity for victims to “shout it from the rooftops” and expose this evil. Also, these testimonies from myriads of abuse survivors will simply not be easily dismissed by people who are still balking at admitting these evils are in the church.
[Don’t forget to include the statement, “I grant you permission to publish this account”]
Publishing will of course be done anonymously to protect your identity.
