Suvivor: Ruth Bailey
by Kerr Cuhulain
Another alleged survivor is a person calling herself "Dr Rebecca Brown." Her real name is Ruth Bailey. I have a copy of the Indiana Medical Licensing Board Report concerning the revocation of Bailey's license to practice medicine. It is an extremely revealing document.
The Medical Licensing Board of Indiana met October 2, 1984, to consider Bailey's license to practice medicine. She refused to attend the hearing and sent no one to act as her counsel or agent. After deliberations this board lifted Bailey's license (#29402) for the following violations and irregularities:
Bailey mis-diagnosed patients including, but not limited to Edna Elaine Moses AKA Elaine Moses AKA Elaine Bailey, Claudia Moses, Lucia Lively, Luccinda Sisson, Kelly Sisson and Cheryl Maynard of "leukemia, various blood disorders, gall bladder disease, brain tumours, and various other ailments and conditions, all of which the Respondent stated were allegedly caused by demons, devils, and other evil spirits". In fact, these "patients... were not suffering from the diagnosed ailments and conditions".
On numerous occasions Bailey stated to her patients "that she was chosen by God as the only physician able to diagnose certain ailments and conditions which other physicians could not because the other physicians... were in fact, demons, devils and other evil spirits themselves".
Bailey gave massive overdoses of Demerol and Phenobarbitol to Elaine Moses "to the point where the patient would tolerate 600 to 900 cc injections of Demerol, a fatal dose of which is normally in the 150 to 200 cc range, and up to three times the recommended therapeutic dose of Phenobarbital".
Bailey "gave Claudia Moses, a 15 year old mentally impaired daughter of Edna Elaine Moses who possesses the intellectual age of an 8 year old, numerous injections of Demerol for alleged 'nausea' and allowed Claudia to administer injections of Demerol to herself".
Bailey supplied her patients "with excessive amounts of legend drugs and/or controlled substances without any explanation, instruction or appropriate charting".
Bailey "failed to maintain and keep adequate records or charts on her patients and in several instances failed to maintain any charts or records at all".
Bailey "on numerous occasions falsified patient charts and hospital records and misled other health professionals regarding her patients condition... all to the detriment of her patient's well being".
Bailey "misrepresented and falsified prescriptions for controlled substances" for Edna Elaine Moses. The drug in this case was Demerol.
Bailey believed that she had "the capability of 'sharing' her patient's illnesses in fighting the demons, devils and other evil spirits that were allegedly causing the various ailments" and "without a valid therapeutic reason... self medicated herself with non therapeutic amounts of Demerol". In fact Bailey had "been witnessed routinely receiving non-therapeutic doses of at least 3 cc of Demerol on an hourly basis by injecting herself in the backs of her hands, the inside of her thighs, or wherever she could locate a suitable vein".
The MLB appointed a psychiatrist to examine Bailey and the statements of her patients. This psychiatrist "diagnosed [Bailey] as suffering from acute personality disorders including demonic delusions and/or paranoid schizophrenia".
Many of Bailey's patients "had to undergo detoxification and withdrawal from the excessive amounts of legend drugs and/or controlled substances which [Bailey] was prescribing and/or administering without valid therapeutic reasons".
After losing her medical license, Bailey adopted the name "Dr. Rebecca Brown", continuing to use the title "Doctor", despite the fact that since she had her license taken away she has never applied to be reinstated in any other state. She and her companion Elaine Moses began telling people of how Moses was a former high priestess of a Satanic cult and how "Dr Brown" had saved her from a hospital riddled with Satanic cult members who had infiltrated it. She eventually met up with Jack Chick of Chick Publications, who published two books authored by Bailey under her pseudonym "Dr. Rebecca Brown": He Came To Set The Captives Free and Prepare For War. We will discuss Chick in more detail in a later in this series.
The following is the text of a letter by Pastor Charles C. Younts of the Calvary Baptist Missions in Toledo, OH, to Pastor Paul Daniels of the same organization which outlines the numerous falsehoods perpetrated by "Dr. Brown" that were obvious to him:
"Dear Mr. Daniels:
"Having read your letter to Pastor Worley, I felt led of the Lord to respond to it, as least in part. I'm also sending copies of this letter to Rebecca Brown, Jack Chick, Pastor Worley and others I feel might be interested.
"Some random comments and questions that do require thought and/or answers:
"1. In order to avoid confusion, I will refer to the alleged former witch as Edna. She has gone by Edna Moses, Edna Bailey, Edna Gnost, Elaine Moses...why all of the aliases, I do not know. It could not be from supposedly hiding from former associates in the craft because she is exceptionally easy to track and find, no matter where she is. I refer to Ruth Bailey (alias Rebecca Brown) as just Ruth.
"2. Why does Ruth keep the title of Doctor when she was barred from medicine in Indiana? (for prescription boosting). She has not applied in any state to be reinstated. It is a fake title and misleading and has been only used by her to establish credibility.
"3. To avoid the appearance of evil, why did Edna assume Ruth's last name? The explanation by Ruth was that she was going to adopt Edna. This is so preposterous and ludicrous...that anyone would make such a comment. Middle age adopts middle age? Why do they sleep in the same bed and have done so almost since they first met? In most of the places they live there is adequate bedroom space for separate bedrooms or at least separate beds. One need hardly to accuse of lesbianism. Homosexual marriages are not uncommon and it is not uncommon for homosexual lovers to assume the last name of their partner. Add this to sleeping together and the appearance of evil is given. I would say it's an unhealthy practice for an individual in the ministry of Jesus Christ.
"4. The very idea that because an individual ministers for Jesus Christ, he is of Christ is anti-Biblical. We know Satan's messengers come on as Angel's of Light. Don't forget Judas ate with and ministered with all the others for years, and they were totally taken by them. He healed, cast out demons, pointed sinners to Jesus Christ, etc. Yet, we're told he was of his father, the Devil. Just because someone has won souls to Jesus Christ, such as "Marjoe Gortnor," they are not necessarily of Christ.
"5. One can only be judged on what they say and do by a singular standard--the only one on earth to tell the truth from the lie is the Bible. The Holy Spirit who inspired it will never go against it. Many of the statements of the two women are so far removed from the Bible that they must be looked at with great suspicion.
"6. Why do neither of the women attend a fundamental church?
"7. Having spoken with Edna personally, she told me and I have it on tape: "I was crazy for believing the New Testament."
"8. Edna, also admitted on the same tape that Ruth lost her license to practice medicine in Indiana for writing illegal prescriptions.
"9. Why does Ruth, who states on tape, one thing that is absolutely necessary in the ministry to witches is to get them out of the spiritual world where they can see things ordinary humans cannot, when she herself enters into this world frequently and what she sees is diametrically opposed to the Word of God. She made the following statements in the presence of witnesses, 'I saw Jesus get up from his throne (How lucky, just her and Steven!) and He came down to minister to demons (that's blasphemous) who were being tormented by angels (since when?) because He felt sorry for them.' Obviously, anyone making that statement does not know the Bible, is having delusions, or is trying to impress someone.
"Just for the things I've stated at this point, alone, I would not believe anything these women have to say, but there's much more--found in the tapes they put out, and that piece of garbage they call a book.
"The two gals made three sets of tapes before they put one of the sets on the market. The first set contradicts the second and the second contradicts the third and the first; and the third set contradicts much of the first and second sets. I'll not go deeply into it at this time. The market tape is full of the questionable, the impossible, and that which cannot be substantiated. Most pastors I know who have listened to the two tapes-- men in the ministries for several years--can survive only one half hour before turning them off. Most have labelled these women as bogus, still in the occult, trying to infiltrate a solid fundamental organization and ruin it...Chick Publications..., or simply two adventuresome women trying to make a name for themselves using Jack [Chick], and Jesus Christ. And still others think it's done for notoriety or even possibly that they're mentally ill. They're credibility can be greatly added to if they answer a multitude of questions which they give stupid reasons why they couldn't and also state that God told them not to answer.
"Lets just start with the tapes for the fun of it--fun tapes!?!? Edna labelled herself by her own mouth to be a murderess before and after the fact. She admits to ordering twenty murders, then admits to ordering the attempted murder of a man whose name must be known as he was admitted to the Indiana hospital when the police found him unconscious at a Satanic meeting, do not know how, saved his life, took him to the hospital, they (police) didn't know what had happened to him because, told Ruth, the police let go the only person who survived a ritualistic murder--the worse case Ruth had seen in her time at the emergency room of a person being self-butchered. I can tell you a cop or an attorney would have a field day with that. Murder, by the way, has no statute of limitations, and there was no police investigation.
"Let's look at Edna a moment if we dare. She is a primary catch for the D.E.A., F.B.I., C.I.A., B.A.T.F., N.S.A., D.I.A., etc. Pick one! You ever notice--you probably have--when the questions start to get tight, she says, "Father told not to say anything." Father??? Which Father??? He's Our Father, Heavenly Father. The singular word "Father" sounds like a familiar spirit...Father, Manchan, Richan, Charlie Chan!!! Oh, but it gets better...or worse!
"Here is a witch, Edna, who has met governors, congressmen, chiefs of police across the United States who engage in witchcraft. She's not referring to seances, taro cards, but to the down and dirty baby killing, derelict murders, narcotics killings, sex orgies with both men and women. Now, it is her responsibility to point out, name and expose these sources of evil, but we find now that God the Father goes against His Own Word and says not to expose anyone. Edna is involved in International "gun-running". Where's the B.A.T.F. and the C.I.A....Where, when and why???
"Edna, bride of Satan, top witch in the United States (maybe even in the whole world) manages to ge out of most of the killing rituals!?! The tapes and the book could be taken apart and refuted by the Bible, not to mention wisdom and plain common sense.
"Just what I have stated to this point alone would be sufficient reason not to take these women seriously. The finest Federal Investigative agencies are not interested about anything the women say. The D.I.A. on the narcotics; the B.A.T.F. on weapons; the FBI on interstate murders; the CIA on international covert deals, have no interest uniquely when these things are openly declared. If, for example, I would have said on a national tape that I've sold narcotics, international arms, murdered and knew people involved, every investigator in the United States would immediately run a background check on me before coming to elaborate on these points. If they discover within their investigations, I was a "loonie tune", they would proceed no further. If they believe there was an iota of truth, I'd be answering questions of lots of people.
"Ruth and Edna, by going public, have opened themselves up to criticism, hard statements, conclusions, public ridicule which is the right of anyone to engage in, regarding a person who by their own comments or actions bring attention to himself. Liable, slander, defamation of character cannot be brought against anyone as the individuals, Edna and Ruth, can no more bring proof of their statements than others can bring proof of their statements in certain areas. The burden of the truth lies on the person who made the original statement that started the controversy. The only answer to Edna and Ruth is to meet the great test--the Bible.
"Nothing they've said is new. It can be seen on any rented video regarding the occult, witchcraft, the martial arts, espionage, and a few assorted monster movies. Let the Lord be the judge!!! I've been able to meet both of the women. I've seen where they'll live and where they have lived. I've read material regarding their past. I even read the tract that the two put out regarding the girl in a church in witchcraft...how Edna spotted her, and how Edna forgot to tell the girl after repenting the Biblical way to get saved. In all this I was not impressed and I'm still not!
"I do know two gals from Indiana with no place to stay, hardly anything to their name who came to California in a wreck of a car, met a fine Christian man, Jack Chick, who has a taste for the unusual and a heart so soft that he took them in. I know now that they have good paying jobs at Chick Publications, national exposure, etc. "Go West, young man," said Horace Greeley...where the action is. He's right. P.T. Barnum also said something similar.
"The young in Christ, the uninitiated, those intrigued by the spectacular, those who believe in the 'Bump in the night' evil, find the two women interesting. Most pastors never invite them back a second time. Needless to say, much more is to be said, as a great deal of time has been spent by many looking into the backgrounds as well as the story they put out. The tapes and the book speak for themselves.
"It's my understanding that an attorney for the two has been brought into the picture. I was so ordered by what I believe to be a Christian attorney in Los Angeles supposedly representing the two women, to cease and desist in any comments regarding them. My reply to the attorney was lengthy and strong and I stated I'd be more than happy to go to court on the matter. Interesting questions would be brought up and I'd love to hear the answers.
"For anyone asked to speak with Ruth and Edna's attorneys--- DO NOT!!! You are not obligated. I would suggest those who criticize their ministry (if led of the Lord) then to be obedient to the Lord. If you are summoned to court, contact me. I'll give you enough accurate information and insight that will uphold you in any court in the land.
"It is my hope that a law suit is coming for me or to another laboring in the Lord. As an appeal to Caesar would bring out the truth and all foolishness would be put to an end in quick order.
"I pray that no one think badly of Jack Chick. He's labored hard for Jesus Christ. Pray for him and his ministry! Remember, Ruth and Edna, have nothing to do with Chick Publications. They work as hired employees. Their ministry is their own. They will answer to the Lord and to others as all do in the ministry, and must be prepared to have an answer for all men, not "Father told me not to!" On a witness stand that is inacceptable (sic) if put in a correct manner."
It is incredible that even though the pastor who wrote this letter has seen through the stories of Brown and Moses he is still unwilling to admit that Chick had any part in the scam. Jack Chick has supported several similar frauds.
Often people who associate with such frauds discover for themselves that their stories are false. Unfortunately this usually occurs after they have suffered a great deal of embarrassment. This Christian minister accepted these people in good faith and then found himself in the position of trying to defend himself and his religion due to their irresponsible stories. It is in the best interest of the Christian faith to uncover these frauds for they are hurt by them just as many members of the general public are.
Chick isn't the only evangelist supporting such frauds. Another person supporting such frauds is David Mainse. A few years ago Mainse was a supporter of initiatives before the CRTC to establish a fundamentalist Christian TV network in Canada. At the time that he made this application, Mainse's program had to share time with other religious groups on Vision Network.
You will recall that earlier in this series I discussed the case of David Mainse of the Christian television program 100 Huntley Street. You will recall that I told you how Mainse was sued by Mark Fedoruk (Lion Serpent Sun) for libel. Well this didn't deter Mainse from having other similar alleged survivors on his show at a later date. 100 Huntley St aired a series of pre-Halloween programs October 27, 28 and 29, 1992 on the occult and ritualistic crime. The title of this series was "Reality of the Unseen World". The words "Witchcraft" and "Satanism" were used as if they were synonymous.
One of Mainse's guests on these programs was Gene Aven, a former professor of theology at Western Washington University, now a professor at Seattle Pacific University, a fundamentalist Christian facility. Aven is the author of the book My Search, which is offered for sale by the Religion Analysis Service, an evangelical Christian organization. Mainse introduced Aven as an individual who had worked with the police on "occult crimes." Mainse claimed that Aven had secretly been a High Priest "involved in Witchcraft" while he was teaching at Western Washington University. While making this introduction on the first day, the scenes being shown were of the Martinsville Day Care facility in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, where allegations of ritual abuse were made. During the second day's introduction, scenes of an altar identified as being in Manitoba, with animal and human (?) bones strewn across it was shown in the background.
In the course of these three programs, Aven said that the struggle between good and evil is real. He said that he knew the power of darkness and the power of the Devil. He stated: "I once served Satan. Now I am serving Jesus." Aven said that while he had been practising Witchcraft he had become demon possessed.
Aven alleged that when he originally entered "Witchcraft," he was told that parapsychological experiences were caused by the unused 90% of his brain. He alleged that when he was ordained as a High Priest he was informed that theory was incorrect and simply used to entice new members to join. Aven claimed that the High Priestess called all such activity the "sport of demons." He said that people become open to demonic activity and that they receive thoughts directly from demons.
Aven categorized people involved in "the Occult" as follows:
Level 1: Self taught Witchcraft and Satanism (dabblers).
Level 2: Self-proclaimed Witchcraft and Satanism. This sounds an awful lot like the first category to me.
Level 3: Organized religious groups.
Level 4: Criminal groups.
It should be noted, however, that on the third day of this series, when Mainse asked Aven if any registered Wiccan groups were involved in criminal activity, Aven's reply was: "None whatsoever. There has never been any tie by the law enforcement community with these types of groups and any criminal activity." In the same program he was asked by a caller what kinds of crime were connected to Witchcraft in South Western Ontario. His answer was that he didn't know. These comments directly contradicted the message being delivered by the displaying of crime scenes while making comments about Witchcraft elsewhere in the series. If Wiccans aren't doing anything to be concerned about then why is Aven even mentioning them? This is a common tactic of people using television or films to deliver this message: they will either say something innocuous while showing horrific scenes in the background which do not relate to the words they are using or they will say horrific things while showing background scenes of unrelated innocuous religious activity.
Aven was asked by a caller what dangers were associated with Halloween. Aven replied that the main danger was that children would learn that some forms of the occult were acceptable. In other words his greatest concern was that someone might discover that Christianity wasn't the only religion out there.
Cal Bombay, a former Christian missionary who also appeared in this segment, stated that more and more occult activities and atrocities were becoming known to the public, these atrocities victimizing both children and adults. He said that Witchcraft was once practised with its "demonic involvement" in secret, but now it was coming out into the open. Cal alleged that human sacrifice was occurring across North America and blamed it on "Lucifer". He invited anyone suffering from "demonic possession" to call on their phone line. No one called.
Cal related his experiences as a missionary in Africa and said that there were nine levels of Witchcraft. He said that the first four levels were positive, healing activities or "White Witchcraft". He characterized the next five levels as "Black Witchcraft" and very evil. As a missionary in Africa, Bombay would have been exposed to African magical beliefs and religions that cannot be equated with western beliefs such as Satanism. He appears to be using the term "witchcraft" here as a general descriptive term for magical practices, rather than a specific religion.
Mainse left most of the talking to Aven and Bombay, but did get in his digs as well. Mainse accused occult groups of attempting to restore what he called "the old violent aspects of the Druids", which he listed as animal and human sacrifice and cannibalism.
In this article we have seen how therapists and patients interacted to create incredible stories and support each other's beliefs, inventing the most bizarre stories to explain away the lack of evidence. You've seen how having the title "doctor" can give credibility to your stories even though they have no basis in reality. You've seen the damage that these people can do by co-opting others into believing their tales. You seen several examples of how countless man hours of investigation and countless wasted tax payers dollars could have been saved if only someone had objectively examined the credentials and stories of those presenting themselves as experts.
In the next few articles I will debunk the stories of some other alleged "survivors" who have been used as resources by law enforcement agencies.
