Continued Harassment of
By Tau Graham T Suddick - The Church of St Mary & St John
Many don't like the fact that women are now becoming spiritual leaders
again, so they will use anything to discredit and demonise them, especially
those standing up and trying to make a difference. Along with those who want
a fair and balanced society where men and women are different, but equal.
These tactics include libel, harassment and intimidation.
One such case is a web site set up with the deliberate purpose of causing
emotional distress, along with an attempt to discredit and destroy the
reputation of Tau Tia L Douglass, the Presiding Bishop of The Church of St
Mary & St John. This site was originally published on the internet by a Mr
Christopher Cain. The site contains a number of false allegations and out
right lies concerning Bishop William Ireland and Tau Tia L Douglass. This is
just one incident in the ongoing harassment of Tau Tia L Douglass, which
started prior to her Consecration. The web site is updated regularly,
meaning that it is not a static site as implied by the police and so we feel
it constitutes a continuing harassment.
This continuing harassment has included threatening phone calls, emails,
Facebook posts and comments, forum and blog posts, along with false
accusations against Tau Tia L Douglass, visits to her home from the police
and even a humiliating ordeal when she was told to attend an interview with
the CID at the police station. This involved being taken into the back of
the police station where the cells are, and treated as though she were a
criminal. Simply because Mr Christopher Cain made false accusations,
claiming she had created a web site stating that he was a paedophile. Even
if that were true, which it is not, it only constitutes a crime if she
falsely accused him of this by reporting him to the authorities. So she has
been visited and interviewed by the police, causing her alarm and distress,
when in her eyes they had absolutely no cause or justification to do so.
This resulted in wasting Tau Tia's valuable time, and having her lose out
financially by disrupting her working day on several occasions. Tau Tia L
Douglass has complained to the police about the continuing harassment from
Mr Christopher Cain, but was told there is nothing they can do as it is a
civil matter, even though upon further investigation it has been found that
harassment is classed as a criminal matter. This we believe was a deliberate
attempt at manipulating her into not pursuing the matter further.
After further communication with DC 777 Richard Horton of the Lancashire
Constabulary, she was notified that an agreement had been reached with Mr
Christopher Cain and Bishop William Ireland on 23rd September 2013, that the
site would be removed. However as of 17th October 2013, it would appear that
they have now gone back on this agreement and are refusing to remove the
Tau Tia L Douglass
Tau Tia has had a long spiritual journey, which began at a young age. She is
a published Author on esoteric subjects and spirituality (Tau Tia's book
http://serpentbloodline.info). She has
studied many aspects of religion, spirituality and anthropology, which led
to her Consecration to the Episcopate in February 2011.
Just prior to her Consecration, a stranger whom she had never met or even
communicated with, but apparently Bishop William Ireland was acquainted with
(later revealed to be Christopher Cain), attempted to stop the Consecration
from going ahead. Since that day he has apparently done all he can to have
the Consecration abnegated and has continually intimidated and harassed Tau
Although Mr Cain and Bishop
Ireland insist that Tau Tia's Holy Orders can be abnegated, we can see by
the following quote from Catholic.com that this is not the case:
“a bishop who appoints a
certain priest as pastor of a parish knowing that the man is morally or
psychologically unfit for the task acts illicitly, since the appointment
violates canon law (cf. canon 521 §2, 1983 Code; canon 453 §2, 1917 Code).
But the appointment is still valid. In other words, that priest is the
rightful pastor of the parish so that, for instance, the marriages he
witnesses there will be true marriages... Even if this where so, a bishop
who carries out an Episcopal Consecration while unsound acts illicitly but
validly. He violates a just law, but the man or woman he ordains receives
the sacramental powers of a bishop so that they in turn can ordain true
priests capable of offering the holy sacrifice of the Mass.”
Even though they wrongly
insist Tau Tia is unfit to Minister, it would make no difference in these
circumstances as Holy Order's once transferred can not be undone. They have
even used the excuse that Bishop William Ireland was at the time of the
Consecration mentally unfit, although he appeared to be in full control of
his faculties at the time and showed no signs of mental instability, either
before or during the ceremony. As we have already seen in the quote above
this however would make no difference to the validity of Tau Tia's
Tau Tia established the independent Celtic Gnostic Church to help bring
about a paradigm shift within the consciousness of the planet. The Church is
named The Church of St Mary & St John.
The Church of St Mary &
Established in March 2011
by Tau Tia L Douglass & Tau Graham T Suddick. The Church of St Mary & St
John's Mission is to bring together the exoteric teachings of St Peter's
Church and the hidden esoteric teachings of St Mary & St John. Our beliefs
stem from the Gnostic texts, Dead Sea Scrolls & Grail Code, as well as other
spiritual and religious texts. We believe in the Divine Feminine and
bringing back the balance between masculine and feminine.
Each of us must search for our own True Will which is gained from Sophia
(Wisdom) and Gnosis (Intuitive Knowledge). Through Sophia and Gnosis we can
find salvation of the soul from the material world. The teachings that lead
to Gnosis have been hidden in the underground stream by those who have
secretly passed it down.
Having been labelled heretics in the past, we believe that the world is
currently a more open and accepting place, and feel it is the right time to
bring these teachings back out into the open. Unfortunately there are still
those who are too set in their ways, leading to situations similar to which
Tau Tia is now facing of prejudice, ignorance and religious bigotry.
We believe that everyone has the right to: Do whatever you want, worship
whatever you want, believe anything you want, so long as it hurts no one
else and you don't force your views on anyone else.
We have offered Mr Cain an
olive branch, a solution to this on-going problem, but up until now he has
failed to act on this good will measure. We will continue to monitor and
record any future updates to his web site about Tau Tia L Douglass, and
respond when necessary on our own web site or in future press releases to
any inaccuracies or allegations.
