To:  "Adam J. Bernay" <>

While I still have no intent of exchanging Lashon Hara with Kathryn,
did anyone else notice that in the first version of this attack Kathryn claimed
not to know me and that in the latest version she has endeavered to explain
away a "misunderstanding" she had with me a year ago?

Here is the response that I sent out immediately.

"Shalom b'YHWH
For those of you who received this message, I hope you can read better
than James Trimm. I never said that I did not know James Trimm. I said
that I did not know Rabbi Yosef. Maybe his ability to read is not the
question, but that he so identifies as Rabbi Yosef, that he cant
distinguish between James Trimm and Rabbi Yosef, when it is written.

Here is my quote from the following post:
">The problem with this situation is a matter of proof, is it not? I do
>not  know Mrs H, nor do I know Rabbi Yosef. I have not even
>the Book  of Mormon. But my curiosity began when I heard a plea from a
>woman begging for  an investigation to prove the truth. That to me
>like something to look  into, so I did. Remember I said earlier, that I

>value truth and honesty as  righteousness. That is the
>reason that I spent hours pouring over this and  several other forums
>related here. Here, Adam Bernay and any other person  that wanted
>proof  is the proof."

As to exchanging Lashon Hara, he is the only one slandering. I have
simply stated the truth to defend his slander. First involving Mrs. H,
then when he said I was a hardcore anti-semite, liar, etc.
Stating a truth to defend an untruth is not Lashon Hara, it is Thorah.
YHWH does not honor slander. Mishley 6:16-19, " These six YHWH hates,
and seven are hateful to His nafesh. Proud eyes, a lying tongue, and
hands shedding innocent blood. A heart devising plans of wickedness,
feet hurrying to run to evil.  A false witness who breathes out lies,
and one sending out strife between brothers."  Shalom, Kathryn"
