COMPLAINT FILED AGAINST Calvary Temple Church

Location: 50214 Triple Seven Road; Sterling, VA 20165
Leader(s): Star Robert Scott, Ronnie Zarou, Jeff Heglund, Les Stone
Website: www.calvarytempleva.org

We are looking into numerous complaints which allege the following:

"...many current & former members are being investigated for various aspects of child abuse, including beatings & sexual abuse, the lead pastor sexually molested members of his own family, his wife of 30+ years wasn't buried two weeks and he was married again to a 19 year old virgin, there are members of the church that are convicted pedophiles..."

"I witnessed families pitted against one another, putting under aged children out of the homes and into the streets. The child sexual abuse allegations came out after I left."

"This is a highly abusive, controlling, authoritarian church. It is bible based but manipulates and deceives using scripture."

"Emotional abuse, threatenings of losing your family, isolation abuse, manipulation and mind games, allegations of molestation of children both girls and boys, mandatory breakups of families. Coverup of pastoral misdeeds and allegations of hidden illegal activity by the pastors."

"We are pretty traumatized, and only just are starting to get more public about what happened. Thanks mainly to all the other brave people who are speaking up, sharing what they know, and validating our experience."

Please remember at this point these are only allegations. If you have any information and/or experience with this church, either positive or negative, please contact us.

GIRL KEPT CAPTIVE BY HER CULT LEADER FATHER

Born into the Workers’ Institute of Marxism-Leninism-Mao Zedong Thought — a strange, secretive “collective” that sprang up in south London in the Seventies — Katy was a human experiment, a model citizen being prepared by her cult-leader father for the moment he took over the world.

Katy told me she was made to keep diaries. Sian would dictate what she had to say. They are chilling documents, recording in detail her daily existence: every bowl of Rice Krispies she ate is written down, as is every beating, which she was forced to explain...

HOW ONE WOMAN ESCAPED HER DESTRUCTIVE CULT

"After her childhood in a secretive cult founded by her grandfather, New Zealand woman Lilia Tarawa risked hellfire and damnation to escape.

On the west coast of the South Island of New Zealand, a religious cult named Gloriavale Christian Community closed itself off from the rest of the world in 1969. Founded by the self-styled and self-named Australian religious leader Hopeful Christian – who was convicted and jailed on three charges of indecent sexual assault of a young woman in 1995 – the 500-strong community was run according to a strict and oppressive interpretation of fundamental Christianity.

Eight years ago, Lilia Tarawa – granddaughter of Hopeful Christian – escaped with her family into what she had always believed to be the evil, wicked world. This is an extract from her memoir about her life in the cult."

SATANIC CULT INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY

FACT is currently investigating a terribly heartbreaking and disturbing case where a mother believes that her ex-husband is involved in a satanic cult that is abusing her children physically and sexually.
The children live on their father’s compound, where he is believed to have impregnated one of his young daughters, more than once, according to evidence collected by a private investigator. Horrific as it seems, it is believed that the babies are then sacrificed as part of the ex-husband’s satanic rituals.
