My Personal Opinion

Posted by Melissa on April 15, 2005 at 12:48:02

I've been in contact with Jim since he first started posting information about the FBI Investigation. I did not know until that time that one was even taking place. He sure got my attention, and I know there are some current family members who are shaking in their boots.

I have never had a problem with any of my communications with Jim, both via phone and email. He's never been pushy and I never felt pressured. It seems that there have been some problems with others though and I am not denying that they were hurt by Jim's pushiness.

I just felt that I should say something in Jim's defense. Okay, he's really out to get Phil Slown. So what? Can you blame him? I am also out to personally "get" the chief abuser of my children and at the same time, Karen Zerby, because he acted as her agent.

Jim made mistakes, but he got a lot of people's attention. I applaud his efforts so far, and I am amazed at his humility in trying to make amends with the ones he has offended. If it was me, I'd say, "Forget it!"

Jim, thanks for all your hard work with the investigation.
