I recieved a threat from a Christian
Today, I and 211 other people received a threatening email from a Christian organization that has been deemed as a hate group. The email titled “Authentication” came from someone called “Kelly Lexy” who later told me to “grow a brain” on the phone.
The troubling thing about this email isn’t the silly threats that were made, but that the email has been sent to 212 emails that belong to Center for Inquiry and Secular Student Alliance affiliates and officers, among others. I tried to trace the IP Address of the sender, but the email was untraceable. The backend of the email revealed “domain of transitioning **********@gmail.com does not designate 198.109.***.*** as permitted sender”.
The email included a website “vaticancatholic.org” which redirected to “mostholyfamilymonastary.com”. Turns out, the sender was from a monastery in a hidden rural area in west New York called “Most Holy Family Monastery.” According to their website, they are “defending the Catholic Faith, Exposing the false post-Vatican II Counter Church and more”. Their website consists of fanatic Christianity with a mix of conspiracy theories about UFO’s and Anti-Popes and Freemasons, doomsday, etc.
The monastery belongs to Brothers Michael and Peter Dimond, who take the position of Sedevacantism, which is held by a small minority of Catholics who believe that the current Pope is a false Pope.
I was curious, and decided to call them. A male with a British accent answered, and after I inquired about someone named Kelly Lexy and briefly asked him about the email, he said “well, would you like to grow a brain?” and hung up. I called again and he denied that the email came from them and told me to stop calling or he might have to call the authorities. The person on the phone didn’t appear to be either of the Dimond’s, but the accent could have been fake.
Upon further research, I found that the group has been declared “a dissident organization that challenges the papal authority” by The Catholic League. They have also been condemned by the Catholic diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska, and were named a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The question still remains: how did they get those emails?
Here are some amusing parts of the email:
I hereby declare- you to be – – an unlawful assembly. I order all those assembled to immediately disperse. I repeat- to immediately disperse. I order all your activity to immediately cease. I repeat-to immediately cease. It is not in accord with the ordinances of Canon Law. Due to your catalytic tendency of disseminating objectives adverse to Christendom – you are therefore ordered to discontinue your illegal profession. Failure to do so will result in proactive, responsive, and co-active measures.
Further, your humanist anachronism, obscurantism, absurdum, intent, mission, and schemes, are henceforth proscribed and condemned. You may be arrested and or subject to other police action.
If there were a Catholic Kingdom today: it would invade the united states and march on each state capital to demand that the governors of these 50 states immediately initiate the process of an orderly dissolution of the federal government through secession and reclamation of federally held property.
Obviously since the Catholic State is forgiving it first offers the american government to go for an orderly peaceful dissolution as a way for america to do it the easy way. This would be in the best interest of all state capitols nationwide. It should be a non-violent event if the government so chooses.
