I hope the LDS corp still stands behind their endorsement of me and overturns my excommunication where I was assaulted and “banned” me from all contact with “their” leaders and access to “their” property! This all began after I posted copies of the 95 LDS Theses on all their local meetinghouses, my less than glowing review of their doctrinal practices in the LDS Epistles which I delivered to “Apostle” Cook after an LDS regional conference, my creation of the ‘Cross Dress to Church Day‘ event and fan page in response to death threats received by others for organizing Wear Pants to Church Day, and my cross-dressing to Fast & Testimony meetings and other services, especially since I currently have the most important legal argument EVER in the SCOTUS docket as a result!!! After all, it WAS the LDS corp which sent Eyring and Faust, two of the highest ranked leaders in the organization to publicly reprimand the local leaders and appoint new ones after my friend and I took a trip to Utah to inform the leaders about disparities in the way things were being handled at the disciplinary level in our communities. It would be a shame for the organization to miss out on the opportunity to set a thoughtful example for its members by pondering the plight of the marginalized and underrepresented and working toward giving them a voice and a hand, especially since they’ve also helped influence my wife to abduct our kids and return to UT (my pro se Appellate Brief is found here). The local Citizen’s Police Review Board found that it was the lack of police policy that initially allowed such harm to befall me when I simply showed up early to the “Court of Love” they invited me to and refused to leave until tried.
I was also cited and issued a 30-day exclusion from downtown Salem for publicly smoking my medical cannabis. I was then harassed a few days later by the same officer for being downtown whilst I appeal the exclusion (something that the unconstitutional exclusion that Officer Galusha gave me explicitly allows), so I made sure to educate him on the issue. I was then left alone by Salem PD to publicly consume cannabis for OVER 2 YEARS before they harassed me DAYS before the solar eclipse to blatantly try to censor me. The next day they returned to arrest me for not having ID on me, even though they were able to positively identify me independently. Thankfully the sheriff who released me COMMENDED me for my work! The crucial cannabis trial for this discrimination by the police is set for February 13th, 2017. My lawyer and I both submitted separate motions to dismiss, and we will both be arguing them in court!
I’ve enjoyed most of my visits to the various religious services I’ve attended and look forward to cross-dressing to every service I can find as I continue advocating for the underdog and critical thought. In just one year, I wore through 8 pair of Merrell shoes along with 50 of the 125 lbs. that I’ve lost while emulating the Nazarene. My time engaging with the community has even garnered the attention of the school paper where I attended law school. Unfortunately, some of my fellow students decided to slander me while abusing the Willamette University disciplinary process, all thanks to this thread from a Facebook group set up for Willamette Collegian writers and editors, past and present. Nevertheless, my life remains devoted to standing for the underdog and critical thought, no matter how unpopular it may sometimes be. The school has officially kicked me out after implementing a smoking ban intended to catch me burning my medical ganja on campus. This was in order to have an additional pretense to expel me for the heat being directed at them by the Office of Civil Rights, as I was permitted to consume it on campus until the day I told a school group organized to discuss the Romney vs. Obama election race that both candidates were EQUALLY unacceptable.
In addition to having commenced these lawsuits against the LDS corp, the law enforcement agents they sent to assault me in their individual capacity, and Willamette University, I am also in the process of releasing an album called, ‘Hymns‘, under the moniker, ‘Jesus & the Angels.’ I look forward to sharing this beautiful, yet mostly unknown music with the world. ♥
We need a new political system or Constitutional amendments like these if we want to fix our government: The creation of a multiparty system, $0 campaign funding allowed, and a special jury duty to investigate and fix government every so often. Support leaders like me if you want representation or even a system willing to strive for real electoral reform!
