2018 Has Been A Very Bad Year For Cults: God’s Army leader sentenced to 72 years

As Vanguard sits in federal custody, his chief financier Legatus is under home arrest, and his co-founder Prefect may be on the high road to cutting a plea deal, a co-founder of another cult called “God’s Army” just got sentenced to 72 years in prison for multiple crimes against children.

Deborah Green, 71, was one of the founding members of the Aggressive Christianity Missions Training Corps and went by “General” to the group’s followers. She was convicted Tuesday on three counts of child rape, two counts of kidnapping and one count of child abuse.

Green kidnapped a woman from Uganda in the 1990s as a child and subjected her to physical and sexual torture for more than a decade.

The victim said she endured 11 surgical procedures to mend bones she claimed Green helped break.

For decades, Green and her husband, James Green, reigned over the New Mexico-based religious sect they co-founded.

Before Deborah Green’s trial, both Greens had been behind bars for more than a year, awaiting trial. James Green’s trial is set to begin in November. He faces charges of kidnapping, child abuse and tampering with evidence.

Nine alleged members of the cult were arrested in a raid on their compound in August 2017.

The Greens’ 55-year-old son-in-law, Peter Green, faces 100 counts of criminal sexual penetration of a child.

Unlike the NXIVM case, all nine of the God’s Army defendants are being tried separately.

A number of cult members have flipped and will testify against the cult leaders.

This is federal court, just like the NXIVM case.

District Court Judge James Sanchez did not sentence Green to the maximum sentence of 108 years but instead gave her but 72 years – one more year than her entire life to date. With good behavior, Green will be eligible for release when she is 133 years old.

The Aggressive Christianity Missions Training Corps began as a peace-promoting commune in the 1980s.
Members were cut off from their families and barred from watching television or reading newspapers. Children were taught the philosophies of the leaders of the cult.
The case started when police following up on a missing person report from the father found his 12-year-old son’s grave. They followed up and found evidence of horrific crimes.
Too bad no one followed up on NXIVM in 2003 after the death of Gina Hutchinson and the disappearance of Kristin Snyder.
When Gina Hutchinson died and Kristin Snyder disappeared, this laddie here was in his bathrobe and busy making music for some new lady.

  • This is so sick and disgusting. I think of those young lives completely destroyed. May they rot in prison and then in hell.

  • Just too bad these monsters are punished at the end of their lives when their innocent victims’ hell starts so soon in their little lives.

    Still this report gratefully reminds me that bad as it is with NXIVM they might have gone on another 20 – 30 years…Keith is only 58…or beyond through their Rainbow Culture Garden progeny…notwithstanding the Bronfman AND Salinas money.

    And maybe law enforcement is finally picking up on the obscure, shrouded signs of cult involvement in crimes.

    I’m closer and closer to getting closure on my sister’s death every day since Frank Parlato and Toni Natalie called me last Spring with the news about Catherine Oxenberg taking up the fight with them in order to free India. They were hopeful that with the branding exposed and given Catherine’s personal plight — if presented right, which Frank saw to — law enforcement, specifically the FBI, would have no choice but to truly investigate — and they were right. I thought they were all fools but have never been so joyous to be proved so wrong!

    2019 could be the best year since Gina’s death yet!

      • I can maybe feed you some facts but don’t doubt you wouldn’t twist them. Far as I can tell we’ll never see eye to eye. Seen your shows, read your shit on here, don’t agree with your views. You’re a bigot, Scott. Fuck off!

        • Heidi,

          Why would his political views matter when talking about the exclusive topic of exposing the injustices of Keith Raniere, who apparently harmed your own sister?

          So you’re placing your own liberal politics above the memory of your sister?

          You’re a disgrace to the memory of your sister in my opinion.

          Your logic sounds like something that a child or teenager would say. Your sister deserved better than to be represented by an attention-whore like yourself. You should be ashamed.

          You’re placing your own politics above the effort to expose Keith Raniere in every possible way?

          Again, you’re a total disgrace to your sister who suffered from this man.

          It sounds like you’re on this blog merely to get attention for yourself rather than to do everything possible to get the truth out about Raniere.

          If my sister had been harmed by somebody, I wouldn’t be citing politics as a reason not to expose that monster in every possible way. But that’s me, and I actually care about my family and would never resort to being an attention-whore like yourself.

          If your sister is looking down on you right now from heaven, I’m sure she’s disgusted with what she sees.

      • Scott, if you keep calling people stupid , other people will be reluctant to go on your show. Apologize to me, and talk nice to Heidi, and I’m sure she’ll change her mind. She can explain to you, during the program, why she follows Clare on her Twitter account, and why she became so angry when I mentioned that fact.
        Come on Heidi, don’t be a chicken. If I had been involved with NXIVM I would agree to go on Scott’s program. He doesnt actually bite, and you dont even have to see him in person.

  • Message to “Flowers”

    I don’t know who you are, but I don’t understand why you are getting beat up by the other people who post here. I’m a liberal and vote Democratic.

    • TK, it has to do with Flowers being dumber than a box of rocks. For the proof, go back and search a few months of past threads for the term “Flowers.” She’s also a liberal Canadian and would probably be a Democrat if she lived in the USA, which is a redundant way of saying she is dumber than a box of rocks.

    • TK
      The short answer is alt-right trolls. They’ve taken over this board, probably due to the Bzenkus conspiracy theory, which was posted here a few months ago. These trolls are extremely misogynistic and they support a rape CULT-ure, so obviously they hate me for calling them out..

    • As I already mentioned in my response to your other post below, you sound as though you’re here on this blog to get attention for yourself rather than to expose Keith Raniere.

      If my sister was ever harmed by somebody evil like Raniere, I sure as hell wouldn’t be citing my own “political views” as a reason not to expose Raniere in every possible forum.

      But then again, I actually care about my own sister and family. I can’t say the same for the attention whore called Heidi.

      Seriously Heidi, you really don’t sound like a grieving sister. You sound like an attention whore.

      • Yeah…you dont want to come across as an attention-whore, Heidi. What are you afraid of? Scott won’t twist your words around.
        (Just tell him that you love Trump and Scott will think you’re wonderful)

    • Heidi, I hope you get the justice that should have been followed up on years ago. Sadly these crimes only garner attention if there are financial crimes or proof of something as heinous as branding woman through the force of collateral. I do hope new laws are enacted against cults, these are not clubs and organizations that benefit humanity. They need rules, outside board members and continuous oversight. The gorenment is going to have to get involved, WHERE there are children DSHS or whatever each state calls Health and Human Services needs to follow up just as they would a daycare. Where I live daycares are followed from conception. With ongoing oversight. Licenses are renewed yearly.

      • Each person grieves in their own way, no one knows what you go through except you. There are those who feel it necessary to blame victims on this forum. Follow your own agenda

    • Why call Heidi Hutchinson out like this? Calling her an ‘attention whore’ – are you sure?
      She has posted here a lot less than I have, and I’m a relative newcomer, with no collateral skin in the game. Like most of the posters here, just a compelling interest in seeing justice done. Frank called it ‘prurience’ and that will do – its not the whole picture, but its accurate enough.

      Last year a tower block housing some of the poorest people in our borough caught fire- it was an inferno, many of us, including my far too young godchildren, watched as friends and neighbours either burnt to death, or jumped to their death, what could we do? turn away and go back to bed?

      I bring this up for one reason. I am following every one of the Leadership of Kensington and Chelsea Council on social media, I along with countless others will ‘follow’ them to their graves, till justice is well and truly served on those responsible for the circumstances that created this enormous tragedy.

      How anyone seeing my name, or any others of the Grenfell support group members, on these murderers’ sm’s could think we were there because we ‘supported’ them, is difficult to imagine.

      I didn’t lose any family members. I lost two students, and a third lost her father and brother, basically the only family she had. But still I’ll follow these bastards to the END.

      I’d wager Ms. Hutchinson, if she is following cb, does so because she feels something like this – to the power of ten. At least, I find this scenario more likely than the notion, she’s so evil she’s supporting the possible murderers of her sister, while ‘pretending’ not to.

    • I hope you ignore the haters, Heidi. I always appreciate your input here.
      There are very few people who have lost a family member because of their death due to Keith Raniere, and you have the right to say whatever the hell you want, and you are smart not to trust people who just want to use you for their own agenda.

  • My husband and I have followed the progression of this cult for 20 years , they have had opportunities to look into them for years, there have been complaints regarding treatment of children. Children who have escaped and been given back to the parent or guardian who was a member. Enoch had a father who wanted him. I’m glad their being punished now but it’s to late for many of the children . No one knows how many children were born and not registered or where they are now.

  • At least Flowers 🌺 understands that we women are victims. What she does not understand is that one man Vanguard tried to help us and is still trying. In all cases women should be believed because women are more ethical then men. f
    Flowers is just stating an obvious truth. Keith tried to teach this. But women have to be ethical too. I would not go as far as to say that the only good man is a dead man but I would say all women should be believed unless they are disintegrated. Clare should be believed. So should Allison. So Flowers how is it you don’t believe a woman? The FBI agents were all men. The US attorney is a man Donoghue (yes they put these little girls to go to court this Moira and Tanya just to hide the fact that this is men versus women ) but this is Men versus women and women should be believed. The law should always favor the woman. See how it is all women who are charged. Except the one good man Keith. Kathy should be believed. Nancy and Lauren should be believed. Not men. Flowers join us You are an advanced woman we could teach you so much
