It has always been my stance that when a victim makes an allegation one should error on the side of the victim and allow the court to sort things out.
The legal system can drag on for month’s even years before an accuser gets their day in court and when the accuser is innocent, unfortunately these accusations alone can destroy their life. These individuals wind up losing their jobs and have difficulty finding employment because of the pending charges.
We need to stop those individuals that are truly abusing their children but we cannot allow our current legal system to hold hostage those that are innocent. I’ve recently learned that there have been hundreds of innocent men and women who have been falsely accused of sexual abuse based upon the results of an unscientific therapy that is referred to as, “repressed memories”. This has got to stop.
This was the case in 2008, when out of the blue Mr. Skotko received a call from the Albany Police department. He was told that his wife of 23 years had filed a formal complaint stating that he had sexually molested their children. Upon further questioning the children admitted that they did not have any memories of this occurring, but that they had undergone repressed memory therapy and their counselor, Marion Knox had assured them that their father had sodomized them.
It took months for the courts to finish their investigation and the case was dismissed the allegations were unfounded and the charges were officially dropped.
So, who is Marion Knox and what is regressed memory therapy? In an interview that was written by Elana Freeland, it states that Marion is a farmer, gospel singer, and counselor from Lebanon, Oregon who is called upon to do the work of deliverance.
Marion is nothing but a “self-proclaimed de-programmer”. He’s your average Christian speaker and most of his activities have been involved in “exposing” the Illuminati and bringing out “facts” about occult organizations.
What he is doing is practicing “mind control games”. Most of the victims coming out of his mind control programs have been led to believe that they have been sexually sodomized. He also believes that the majority of the Catholics, the Mormons and those affiliated with the Masonries have all been at one time or another sodomized. He is consumed with the topic of sodomy so it is not surprising that through his repressed memory therapy that he has been able to convince so many of his “clients” that they have also been sodomized and he justifies that the reason that they had not remembered it before this therapy is because it has been repressed.
Marion appears quite convinced that based upon his research that it is not uncommon for his clients to have been victimized between the ages of two and four. His clients are numerous and from his own words in an interview conducted by Elana Freeland, Marion admits that he doesn’t keep accurate records, isn’t that convenient let alone unprofessional.
Marion tells his clients that whatever they knew up to this point, they have to discard and then using his material find the “real truth.”, which can only be tapped into through a regressive memory therapy.
Here in the United States all professions are well regulated however anyone can hang out a “shingle” and call themselves pastor, apostle, teacher, counselor, etc. and no one is going to bother to check if the person is qualified.
The teachings of Marion do not end there in fact, there are many organizations out there posting similar information and although no two groups hold absolutely identical rituals and ceremonies, the horrifying pattern is that many of these groups are helping to convince children as young as three and adult women in their thirties and forties that they have been sexually abused.
This cult activity is going on in the 21st Century right before our eyes and played out in our courtrooms. These groups are insisting that these acts of sexual abuse are hidden in a person’s mind and can only be recalled during intensive regressive memory therapy.
This is insanity and it must be stopped, individuals like Marion Knox are preying on innocent victims. Now, I’d be the first to say if an individual is guilty of sexually abuse than lock him up and throw away the key. However it is horrifying to know that there are counselors, doctors and psychologist that are concluding that a patient has been sexually abused based upon these false memories.
A report by Robert Rosenthal, (J.D. / Developmental Review) stated that, “False memories or reports can be quickly produced through a combination of suggestive tactics. Indeed, multiple suggestive tactics in a single 10-min interview have been shown to lead preschool children to make inaccurate statements.”
How many innocent men and women are sitting in our jails and prisons based upon this unscientific method of counseling and how many children have been pried from the arms of their loving parents because of these accusations? We need accountability and we need justice, individuals like Marion Knox should be investigated.
I would encourage anyone who has been a victim of this unscrupulous therapy to share your story as well. Enough is enough, this has to stop.
