In this situation, a woman and her husband were slandered by James Trimm and his Beit Din. No evidence was ever provided to establish their claims against the couple. They have recently requested that I remove their names for protection from his continued slander and the lies that were written. It is not my normal policy to edit, in fact I habitually show the whole post, email or document as it is, to prove the truth. Since this couple has continued to be hurt by James Trimm's slander, I have agreed to change their names, as of July 2004, for their protection, to Mr. and Mrs. H. in brackets [ ]. When James Trimm and Michael Detwiler first made the accusations, they said they had proof and offered it. I accepted their offer, but no proof was ever forthcoming. Since the false statements of these men continue to grieve this couple, I am also using astericks *** where the slander had originally occurred.
This page includes the situation at the Nazarene forum
when I first found it. It also includes all my first posts, first e-mails
to the Beit Din members, the e-mail from James admitting to be Rabbi Yosef
and posting as various names at other forums, which was his original e-mail.
The evidence page, dealing with the content of Rabbi Yosef posts, as well
as the page of evidence from Steve Cohens posts are here as well. All information
that was previously on the main page, from the introduction of the naz. forum
to the Revised Letter section, is intact and unchanged in this section
Letter and Second Slander - anti-semitism
This page continues from the Initial Situation. It includes
the Revised letter that James Trimm stated was an exact copy. This page also
includes the forum posts from EliYahs, my letter to Chris Lingle, my final
letter to the Beit Din, asking for an investigation (this was before I asked
them a later question and got 3 responses).
e-mail and my rebuttal
James Trimm sent out an e-mail, stating that I had
contradicted myself. First claiming not to know him and then later that I did.
I did not contradict myself, James could not tell the difference between my
saying that I did not know Rabbi Yosef, and himself.
Later that evening, I received an e-mail from James mentioning
reconciliation. In it he states, "You are spoiling your good name with your
Lashon Hara. Even if your claims were true they would still be Lashon
Hara." Not once does he apologize for his slander and lies. Here is my reply.I
have not heard back from him, nor has a posted apology and retraction
gone out to his forums and lists.
You cannot have shalom without righteousness.
This page includes all the informaion that was previously
listed under the heading, "Six Steps." Included are my question to the Beit
Din about their forcing James Trimm to post 6 Steps, the replies from Steve
Heiliczer, Luana Fabry and Michael Detwiler. Also included are the continued
communications with Michael Detwiler over this issue.
This page continues where the above page ends. It includes
the false apology by James Trimm and all the ensuing e-mail communication between
myself and Michael Detwiler and my e-mail to the Beit Din.
This page contiues from False Apology Page. It includes
James Trimms letter, asking to open a dialogue and work toward reconciliation.
It includes his e-mails about Dan Chaputs book, my e-mails refuting his anti-semitic
charges, My statements from EliYah's condensed to one page, the final letter
to James Trimm, the Beit DIn and Michael Detwiler.
The following links, are to pages that deal with whole subjects,
that spanned various times. They are not necessarily chronological.
Beit Din Page
This page involves who is a member of the SANJ Beit Din
and how they have dealt with the matters involving James Trimm, as the "Nasi"
of this Beit Din. Since the Beit Din set certain requirements for voting members,
this called into question, who was actually Jewish, on the Beit Din. The facts
of James Trimm not being born or raised Jewish are on this page, as it relates
to the Beit Din.
