WADE DEMERS SAVED HIS DAUGHTER from being crippled for life or killed—you all have it backwards, and you need to know what really happened.

I am writing this to dispel falsehoods that have been entered on this forum and in many other areas regarding Pastor Wade Demers. There are a number of us here in New England who have viewed extensive, objective documented materials, as well as have spoken with many of the eyewitnesses to these events, among them Pastor Demers himself, and I and others will be writing other things in the future. The material is so voluminous and the slander so extensive that it cannot all be covered here.

Today I choose to begin by addressing one issue, which was brought up on this particular forum, regarding Pastor Demers’ daughter Nicole. What was written and printed here on this forum by a supposed former church member, and in the media, is TOTALLY FALSE—the truth is that the surgery that the doctors and the authorities were going to force on little Nicole was NOT “life-saving”—it would have killed or crippled her. Yes, poor dear souls, you have it backwards. Read on…(Bear with me, because I will have to make a large number of installments due to the fact that each entry on this forum is limited to a certain number of words, and obviously, the truth cannot all be told in one entry. There has been so much slander written about Pastor Demers that it will take quite a bit to tell all of the facts. This one subject is only the tip of the iceberg. But, as they say, a very long journey begins with a single step.)

I would also like to let you know that I have purposely repeated certain details because there is a lot to tell and so for the reader there is a lot to absorb; and in order for me to more effectively dispel the slander, I wanted to make sure that these details were emphasized to counteract the lies that have been told. So, the repetition has been done on purpose. I once had a teacher who told me that repetition was an excellent way to learn anything…and because I want all of those who are willing to learn the truth to do so, I have used repetition.

ALSO, TO ALL OF YOU DETRACTORS AND LIARS WHO HAVE PARTICIPATED IN THE SLANDER, YOU WILL BE EXPOSED. WE WILL BE NAMING NAMES (JUST LIKE YOU’VE NAMED HIS NAME), BECAUSE WE HAVE DONE AND ARE DOING RESEARCH ON EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU. UP UNTIL NOW, YOU HAVE BEEN ABLE TO HIDE, BUT THAT HAS ENDED. So, get ready! By the way, unlike those of you who commit slander and who lie and repeat gossip, we do research and we talk only facts, documented and objective.

Before I start with the story, let me make it clear that the story begins in the 1980’s, and at the present time of this writing, the children are in their 20’s and 30’s. I just wanted to begin by addressing this one issue because it was brought up in this forum, and you have to start somewhere! The whole story is quite amazing and has the makings of a fantastic movie that would boggle the mind because you couldn’t come up with some of this stuff if you made it up; it is so unbelievable at times, although every bit is true.

To begin, I quote from Pastor Demers:

“Our daughter Nicole contracted a rare disease called fibrous dysplasia, and the main symptom of that was that the cross-section of her bones, you know, if you look at a bone, the cross section is supposed to have a normal part of hard part and soft, and it was out of proportion. It was more soft in proportion to the hard part than normal, so her bones were brittle.

“And of course, we believe in Jesus being our doctor and our healer, just as He has told us in the Bible: God says in Exodus 15:26,“I, the LORD, am your healer”, and Psalm 103:3 says,“(He) heals all your diseases,” and Isaiah 53:5 says “…and by His scourging we are healed.” God had told us that He would heal Nicole if we kept our faith in Him, and that she just needed physical therapy to strengthen those ligaments and the muscles, until He chose to heal the unhealable syndrome that was affecting her bones.(By the way, although chronic and incurable except by God, fibrous dysplasia is not in any way life-threatening—never has been, never will be. Also, there are no medicines that can cure it.)

“Somebody became aware of our daughter’s condition, and, unbeknownst to us, called child protective services (called, at that time, in Rhode Island, DCF --Department for Children and Families). In Rhode Island, police surrounded our house, put guns at my head—state policemen, they put guns at my head and said that they wanted me to sign a paper saying that my daughter could receive medical attention.

“So they forcibly tore our daughter from my arms and proceeded to get a restraining order saying that we couldn’t see our daughter, and were threatening me about what would happen to me if she died (remember, fibrous dysplasia is not life-threatening)… they were screaming in my face as they were taking my daughter away…a guy that looked like he was with the Gestapo, from DCF (named Frank Yetner) was screaming,“WE’RE GONNA HAVE YOU UP FOR MURDER ONE!”

“Remember, God had told me to give our daughter physical therapy, which I was planning to do. But these people went absolutely crazy. They proceeded to get a restraining order saying that we couldn’t see our daughter; they strapped her to a bed at Rhode Island Hospital, and kept armed guards on duty to keep us from visiting our terrified child. She was 4 years old at the time. We couldn’t see her, and she couldn’t see us. They began the process to get so they could operate on our daughter. The next day, my wife and myself were forcibly taken to separate jail cells and told that if we didn’t sign the paper to operate, they wouldn’t let us out of jail. Because we refused to sign, after about two hours they let us go because their threatening and attempting to extort us didn’t work. And of course that’s all obviously patently illegal, according to law, they can’t do that.

“A whole month went by…lots of crazy things happened…the man (now deceased) who was the head of DCF, Dr. Ed Collins, had put together a team of, I believe it was 4 people, doctors, to perform an operation that was recommended for fibrous dysplasia in the standard literature in the medical profession. But this was a very rare disease, and so there was only one paragraph about it.

“So we were desperate, and time and space won’t permit me to go into all the details of all the heartache and horror of that time of having our daughter away from us…but, for example, my parents, the newspaper, and the other media were all saying how awful I was for refusing to sign the court order saying they could operate on our daughter. But I knew that God would be true to His word and God says,“I, the LORD, am your healer”(Exodus 15:26), and God said not to let them operate.

“I cried out to God in prayer and asked Him what to do. He told me to go to the Rhode Island Hospital Medical Library.

“I had previous experience because I did my graduate assistantship in medical engineering at Rhode Island Hospital. I went and used the card catalog (I knew how to use it, but probably more than most because my mother was a librarian), but, according to the card file, there was nothing in the whole medical library about fibrous dysplasia.

“They had moveable shelf stacks, and I leaned against the wall with my head against the wall, in despair…saying to myself,‘This is crazy; here I am thinking that I’m listening to God’s voice…I’m just crazy, just like everyone says.’ Then I heard God say,‘There is a book; it’s not catalogued…it’s orange hardback. It’s lying on the shelves to your right, flat, in an open space on the shelf.’

“I went to the open space, and the book was as described by God, where He said it would be. I opened it up, it was a very new book, and in the bibliography it made reference to some periodic literature from Mass. General Hospital concerning fibrous dysplasia. I immediately went to the reference desk, and asked the reference librarian, I showed her the citation in the bibliography, and I asked her,“Do you know anything about this literature, how I can get a hold of it? She had a large manila envelope in her hand, stuffed. She said,“That’s amazing; a courier just gave this to me…it’s from Mass. General Hospital. It’s a study concerning fibrous dysplasia that was done, tracking 90 patients over 50 years.”

“I was stunned, but happy and pleased. I sat right down and read it—all. The main points were this: that what was said about fibrous dysplasia in the existing literature was in error, and that the operation would cripple or kill a pre-pubescent child…remember, Nicole was 4. This is the very operation that the State was proceeding to get a court order to do without our (the parents’) permission.

“It went on to say that fibrous dysplasia is incurable, and that the recommended course of action was physical therapy to ameliorate the weakness by strengthening the ligaments and tendons around the weakened sites—just as God had told me.

“Armed with this information, I immediately went back to the church office, and got people who could type, and made a letter, had copies made, and sent them to everybody: the press, government officials, president of the U.S., but also the local law enforcement authorities, judges, doctors, and the people in DCF. The reactions were varied and different: DCF’s reaction was the most bizarre; instead of acting logically and admitting their error, they (totally ignoring the welfare of the child and not wanting to admit their mistake) did two things: 1. They got a restraining order saying that I couldn’t go to the Rhode Island Hospital Library anymore, and 2. They proceeded to fix the date and time for the operation to go forward on Nicole! Yes, the same operation that Massachusetts General Hospital’s study (tracking 90 patients over 50 years) had proved would either cripple or kill her!

“Of course the judges and the doctors had a different reaction. Dr. Mary Arnold, one of the four doctors put on the team by Dr. Collins, had participated in and set up an operation the year before and had indeed crippled a four year old girl, and it was only a miracle that the child had lived. They realized at this point the magnitude of their error. They had been trying to get me to sign a death warrant or a crippling order for my daughter…because I was choosing to trust in God’s voice and the words He gave me. I stood fast.

“So there it is: the State of Rhode Island, at the urging of Dr. Collins and the DCF, HAD ISSUED A COURT ORDER TO KILL OR CRIPPLE MY DAUGHER NICOLE. It was only after God had led me to that research, and the doctors panicked and put the pressure on the lawyers, that they reconsidered what they were doing.

“We were never taken to a courtroom. My wife and I were taken to a conference room in the court building. There was a judge, lawyers from DCF, doctors, lawyers for the doctors, and they sent our daughter home without the operation, just saying she needed the physical therapy, what I had said that she needed from the beginning.

“If you are wondering why there were no corrections made in the media, and why to this day no one’s corrected the lies that are in the media, here is just one telling example: A Rhode Island television reporter and news anchor, Debra Horne of Channel 6, when we asked her why they wouldn’t put the truth of what happened on the news, said:‘You don’t understand our business; the media doesn’t like to admit mistakes, even if it’s slander.’”
(END OF SECTION QUOTED FROM PASTOR DEMERS.)

This is the reason I am writing…to this day these lies are repeated by, for example, the mayor of the city where Pastor Demers now lives (Meridian, Mississippi), and people like the mayor not only repeat the lies and slander, but also, they refuse to look at the evidence that proves that it’s all lies! Can you imagine that? Also, can you imagine what it must be like for Pastor Demers after over 20 years, to have people continue to repeat these lies and having a mayor who is covering up an arson (committed against Pastor Demers and Christ’s Church in Action in Meridian, Mississippi, where he is pastor) and other crimes, repeating these lies?

I’ve seen the objective documentation and it verifies exactly what Pastor Demers had related to me in every detail; the State of RI was not only in error but was asking a man to sign off on an operation which in the worst case could quite possibly have been fatal to his daughter, but even in the best case would have crippled her for life! I will also be quoting from a letter produced years later by a Dr. John Roberts, hand-signed by him, written on his official Rhode Island Hospital and Brown University stationery, which is one of many official documents which I have seen that confirms what Pastor Demers is saying is true, and that what Pastor Demers’ detractors are saying is absolute fabrication and, in many cases, nonsense.
Speaker of Justice

#11 Jul 5, 2008
So you see, Pastor Demers is not what he’s been made out to be…on the contrary, he’s a hero. Trusting that he heard God’s words, he saved his daughter from being crippled for life or possibly killed. What has been printed in the media is the opposite of the truth… Pastor Demers didn’t hurt his daughter, he saved her—it was the DCF, the authorities, and the doctors who were going to kill or cripple 4 year old Nicole!

Can you imagine those people trying to force a father to sign a death warrant or a crippling order for his child? Just because he chose to believe he heard the voice and Word of God? And, he was willing to die under the guns of state policemen at his head to stand up for what he believed in, God’s Word. Put yourself in his position. They had absolutely no right to do that, and they almost killed or crippled his daughter for life, even after they discovered their mistake! I don’t know if any of you out there would have stood for this. Some of you would have taken out a gun and shot someone. But Pastor Demers continued to trust God through the agony, and God was faithful. Problem is, the slander still is in existence, in print and in people’s minds. That is why I (and others like me) am finally here.

Subsequently, Jacalynn Demers started divorce proceedings on Pastor Demers…she said, on the news “I didn’t marry no preacher, I married a businessman.” She admitted on the air that she married him for money, and she didn’t like giving everything up to serve God.

Jacalynn Demers got a false restraining order based on lies and had Pastor Demers put out of the house. The slander in the media aided in her ability to get this false restraining order, and so one day Pastor Demers just couldn’t go to his home anymore; he was put out. He couldn’t go home, and he couldn’t see his children…and also due to the slander and lies in the media, Jacalynn got immediate custody of the children, and thus, a pattern of neglect and abuse began. Because Jacalynn decided to “party” and do whatever she wanted, she neglected to give Nicole the physical therapy needed, and instead went out drinking all the time, even taking Nicole to bars with her. Subsequently, due to Jacalynn’s abuse and neglect of Nicole, 2 years later Nicole needed a corrective type of surgery, to correct the deformity that had been caused by Jacalynn’s neglect, the very deformities that the physical therapy was designed to prevent; a surgery that Pastor Demers interceded to obtain for Nicole even though he was not allowed in or near his house and couldn’t see his children, and the slander and lies about him were still abounding.(This surgery had nothing to do with fixing the fibrous dysplasia, it was only to correct the deformity caused by Jacalynn’s neglect.)

#12 Jul 5, 2008
It’s sad, because if everyone had listened to Pastor Demers in the first place, Nicole would have been fine.

I will present just some of the details of what happened subsequent to Pastor Demers saving Nicole from being killed or crippled for life. Unfortunately, all three of Pastor Demers’ children ended up being hurt because of the things I am about to tell you that Jacalynn and other people did; and actually a young man and an elderly woman are dead due to what Jacalynn Demers, the courts, the DCF, and other segments of the Rhode Island system did because they wanted to cover up their greed and criminal deeds and continue their personal vendettas against Wade Demers, instead of considering the welfare of the children. Also, there are countless other children and people who have been hurt because the slander and lies are stopping Pastor Demers from being able to do the ministry work that God has given him to do, which is all he really wants to do.

(From my research, this man appears to be no different than the apostles in the book called the Bible who were persecuted; this is nothing new, but apparently it just hasn’t been done in a long time Pastor Demers quoted a scripture to me, Hosea 4:6 which says,“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Although, according to the people who believe the Bible, it is natural for a true apostle to receive persecution, we are fed up with this; that doesn’t make persecution right. We are of diverse backgrounds and some of us don’t ascribe to the beliefs that Pastor Demers holds, but we understand persecution and as I said, though expected, the persecutors are still WRONG. Pontius Pilate and Herod are not the good guys.)

I have met several people whose lives have been transformed for the better because of the ministry of this man. The ministry work that he and his wife, Patti, do is absolutely wonderful. But he can’t effectively minister to most of the people who need his help, because the slander and defamation affects the majority of the people in an adverse way. It needs to be deleted, or at least counteracted, so that people won’t be affected by it who might otherwise be helped. It’s hard to get people to listen when they are looking at someone and thinking that they are bad because of something untrue that they’ve read or heard (which is of course, the purpose of slander and the objective of the slanderer.)

Again, it is much too involved to go into everything here, but I am trying to make a small dent in the huge, gigantic, outlandish, and cruel mountain of lies that have been built about this man. So, read on if you care to. If you don’t want to, fine, but don’t go spreading lies about that which you know nothing about, Peggy. You, too, Susie, and Sandra, and Dennis, and John Robert, and Wayne, and Terrence, and Drew, and Rogeriee, and the rest of you. Yes, we have sources that reveal to us who you are, although you hide behind the anonymity of the blog…We’ve got moves you’ve never seen, baby!

Back to the reality of the story: Jacalynn, after putting her husband out of the house with that falsely obtained restraining order, let the household run rampant and out of control (more details to follow), and the children—a girl aged 12 (Danielle) a boy aged 14 (Kirk), and Nicole, aged 4, were hurt very badly because of this. Jacalynn went out to bars (such as Patient Lucy’s in Attleboro, Mass.) with her girlfriend (Linda Evans) many times bringing young Nicole (4 years old) along to the bar. Nicole would be sitting on the floor next to the bar stool at Jacalynn’s feet. Jacalynn was getting drunk with Linda, and there was a man named Jerry Chaput whom Jacalynn picked up there whom she was sleeping with during that time period. Jacalynn would get so drunk she would fall off the bar stool, and Nicole would be sitting there on the floor at Jacalynn’s feet, seeing all of this. Sometimes Jacalynn would almost fall right onto Nicole when she fell off her bar stool.

(By the way, based on the documents I’ve reviewed and witnesses I’ve interviewed, and Jacalynn’s own confessions which she made in interviews with psychiatrists, what Jacalynn did to Nicole was bad enough, but it’s nothing compared to the mental, physical, and psychological abuse that Jacalynn did to the other two children, Danielle and Kirk, after she had put her husband out. It’s all very sad and terrible…apparently based on the documentation and confessions by Jacalynn, it appears that Jacalynn Demers needed her husband to keep herself under control; she was an alcoholic and had lots of other problems…that whole household went out of control when Pastor Demers was gone. The evidence strongly points to the fact that they needed their dad who was the stabilizing influence and the voice of reason.)
Speaker of Justice

Winthrop, MA

#14 Jul 5, 2008
During this time frame, Kirk and Daniele would have friends and other people over, ranging in age from 12 to 23, many of them at times living at and/or sleeping over at the home. Sometimes there were as many as 20 young people living in the house. The following are just some of the things that went on in that house when Pastor Demers had been put out and Jacalynn was in charge:

The 12 and 14 year olds, Danielle and Kirk, were drinking beer by the case, with the 4 year old watching. Jacalynn had purchased this beer for her children and for the neighbors’ children. Jacalynn’s attitude was “they need to have fun, they’re young.” The children were also drinking hard liquor by the bottle, brought to the house by other men. They were making, using, and selling LSD and driving the family car, all of this with Jacalynn’s full knowledge and permission…the 12 and 14 year old were becoming sexually active, which progressed over a short period of time from petting to full intercourse. There were men over 18 having sex with young girls in the house, including Danielle who was 12 and then 13 at the time (over the span of two years or so).(By the way, did you know that that is called statutory rape?) Jacalynn admitted most of this in some official documents produced years later, made by a psychiatrist at Bradley Hospital—it’s too complicated to get into all of it here. Also, by then it was too late; the children had been irreparably harmed by all of this.

Just one example of another thing that happened, according to a document I read that is hand-signed by the children’s grandmother (Pastor Demers’ mother, Irene Demers). Irene Demers entered Jacalynn’s home one day, and saw a “large-caliber hand gun”(her words) on the table, and “many young men and women whom I did not know, running around the house, out of control”. Jacalynn was not at home at the time. This apparently was a common scene during this time frame.(Irene Demers did nothing to stop this or any of the other horrible things that were going on that were hurting the children…she did nothing because of her stated hatred of her son’s belief in the Bible, because she was a Roman Catholic. She literally stated that the worst day of her life was when she found out that her son was preaching from the Bible on the streets of Providence. Even though as a librarian and an educated woman, who obviously knew that what was going on at Jacalynn’s house was wrong, it appears that she couldn’t admit she was wrong, because that would mean that she would have to admit that her son was right.
Speaker of Justice

Winthrop, MA

#15 Jul 5, 2008
I recently talked to Irene (Soucy) Demers’ brother Larry Soucy (Pastor Demers’ uncle), and he too expressed how he thought that “Wade’s” religious beliefs were terrible and he should have stayed a Catholic…by the way, Larry Soucy also did nothing to help the children. His son Lawrence George Soucy (Jr.—not to be confused with his dad) is one of the detractors on this forum called “close relative of Wade”. Lawrence George Soucy (Jr.) is his real name; (he’s Pastor Demers’ cousin) his family calls him “Chippy”. He was a drug dealer who was manufacturing marijuana cigarettes in the basement of his home with intent to sell (he was convicted of this). Also, years later he sold hard drugs from his home on Ames Street in the Phenix section of West Warwick, Rhode Island. As I said, his family called him “Chippy”, but his drug customers knew him as Larry (again, not to be confused with his dad, Larry Soucy—Chippy is Larry, Jr.)

It should also be noted that Larry Soucy, Irene (Soucy) Demers’ brother and Chippy’s father, had deserted his 2 preschool children when they were young, one of them was Lawrence Jr.(Chippy). He deserted his 2 children after his wife died in the hospital, and ran around for years in Florida in Daytona Beach with a notorious playboy named Elliot Coutu, in Larry’s 2-seater Jaguar. This is part of the reason for Larry Jr.’s (Chippy’s) problems with atheism and drug dealing.

Back to the story: the way that the information came out about what was happening at Jacalynn’s house was that, although the children were prevented from visiting their dad or having any contact with him, the older daughter, Danielle, would secretly contact her dad and many times express how crazy and terrible life had become for her and her brother and sister at the house since he was gone. Also, others who had direct contact with Jacalynn Demers and the children were appalled at what was going on and would inform Pastor Demers of the horrid details of what was happening.(Many of these details, as I said before, were confirmed by Jacalynn Demers herself in documents which were produced when she was being interviewed by a psychiatrist.) It was through these sources that Pastor Demers learned of the neglect of Nicole’s medical condition and of the obvious visible deformity of her leg, starting from the hip down, and that is when he interceded to help Nicole by getting her that corrective surgery.
Speaker of Justice

Winthrop, MA

#16 Jul 5, 2008
Unfortunately, most of the people who knew what was going on at Jacalynn’s house (through either first-hand knowledge or eyewitness accounts) couldn’t or wouldn’t do anything to help.
(For example, one of these people was a Smithfield, RI policeman who knew what was going on at that home, but who couldn’t intervene because (according to him), the Captain of the Smithfield Police and Lieutenant Williams of the Smithfield Police were covering up for Jacalynn. By the way, the Captain of the Smithfield Police Department was an uncle of then 14 year old Kirk’s then sexual and drinking partner and girlfriend, Rachel, who was younger than Kirk and who was then living at the house almost full-time.(Subsequently it turns out that Lt. Williams was a friend of one of the lawyers who was involved in criminal activity committed against Pastor Demers in the courts, Rogeriee Thompson, who is now a judge—more about her later.)

During this time, as I said before, Jacalynn neglected to give Nicole the physical therapy that was necessary. Because the ligaments and the muscles were never strengthened because Jacalynn did NOT do the physical therapy, the bones were still weak, because fibrous dysplasia is incurable. And subsequently when Pastor Demers found out that his ex-wife had abusively neglected to give Nicole the physical therapy needed, and that because of this, his daughter’s leg and hip were constantly being broken and re-healed, and broken and re-healed, and she was getting deformed, Pastor Demers intervened to have a corrective surgery done to help Nicole with the deformity—remember, this had nothing to do with correcting, healing or eliminating the fibrous dysplasia, it was just a surgery to correct the deformity caused by Jacalynn’s neglect.

You see, at this point Nicole was under her mother’s roof and her mother didn’t believe in God for healing; and because a child is healed by the faith of his parents (just like Moses was saved by the faith of his parents), Nicole’s mother had forced Nicole into that position. Nicole wasn’t with her dad, who had the faith to trust in God for healing. Nicole was with her mother who didn’t believe. Also, please know for certain that Pastor Demers would have been diligent to see that his daughter continued to get the physical therapy she needed if he had been there; Jacalynn wasn’t diligent and Jacalynn didn’t do the physical therapy. In fact, until Pastor Demers was put out of the house on that falsely obtained restraining order, he was actually doing the physical therapy with Nicole himself, and thus Nicole was not subject to the deformity as long as her dad was around.
Speaker of Justice

Winthrop, MA

#17 Jul 5, 2008
You may ask, what was the court’s role in all of this? How come no one intervened on behalf of the children? Let me try to paint the picture for you so you will understand what happened with that situation.

Because of the lies by the media and everybody else, Jacalynn, as I said before, got immediate sole custody of the children…plus, the judge and two lawyers on the case saw an opportunity to bleed the Demers estate for money by creating a false conflict so they could keep the court “battle” going on and continue with false billings to get thousands and thousands of dollars. You see, very early on, Pastor Demers signed a no-contest stipulation, giving up everything rather than have a conflict in court with the divorce, which he felt would hurt the children. The judge and the lawyers ignored the no-contest stipulation, and continued the court hearings so they could keep getting more and more money.

The judge who was assigned to this divorce case was RI Family Court Judge Thomas Fay. He appointed a guardian ad litem who was supposed to look out for the best interests of the children; he picked a good friend of his, a lawyer named Rogeriee Thompson (O. Rogeriee Thompson, to be exact). This woman ignored all of the things going on at the home of Jacalynn Demers, and when Pastor Demers would call Rogeriee Thompson’s office to give her information about things he had been finding out about that were going on at Jacalynn’s house, and to beg Rogeriee Thompson to help his children, she would do such things as say,“They’re fine,” and hang up. She would not intervene on the children’s behalf, even though it was her job. Eventually she even started having her assistant Suzanne Dash verbally abuse Pastor Demers, or would put him on hold for long periods of time so that he would have to hang up and call back, only to be subjected to more abuse. And all the while he was only trying to get help for his children.

So you see, part of the problem was that the judge, the guardian ad litem, and Jacalynn’s lawyer, Nicholas Colangelo, had discovered that they could make a lot of money by keeping this going on. So, the children were expendable.

Yes, Pastor Demers intervened and got Nicole this corrective surgery, while his ex-wife was drinking and having sex and allowing the children to have sex, drugs, and booze in her home, while Rogeriee Thompson, Judge Fay and others were involved in slandering Pastor Demers, so they could continue to bilk the estate that Pastor Demers voluntarily gave to his wife for her and the children. By the way, Judge Fay and the two lawyers did this by holding well over 100 hearings over a 2-year period in an uncontested divorce. They did this because they saw that there was over a million dollars in assets that had been built up in the Demers estate, and there was, for them, a real “gravy train.”
Speaker of Justice

Winthrop, MA

#18 Jul 5, 2008
Judge Fay would let Rogeriee Thompson and Nicholas Colangelo bill themselves for these phony hearings which were not needed—it was an uncontested divorce! In this way, through fraudulent billing,$50,000.00 was taken, and beyond that, there is over a quarter of a million dollars ($250,000.00) unaccounted for. If anyone had listened to Pastor Demers, that “gravy train” would have stopped, and they knew it. So—there would be no more "big bucks;" plus, they would have gone to jail for their crimes.(You might remember a case of a woman named Sylvia Johnson in Colorado who went to jail for letting teenagers drink, take drugs and have sex in her home…what Jacalynn and these people did was much worse.)

By the way, speaking of the money, one day when the children had been getting into more trouble and Pastor Demers had found out about it (for one thing, Kirk had racked up the family car), Pastor Demers decided to try to call Nicholas Colangelo because he wasn’t getting any help from the guardian ad litem Rogeriee Thompson. Nicholas Colangelo’s live-in mistress got on the phone and started laughing at Pastor Demers and saying,“Ha, ha, Wade Demers, we’re taking your f---ing money and we’re going to the Caribbean! Ha, ha!” As I said, there’s a lot to be told here.

Back to the story about little Nicole…(Let me say it, one more time, again) Jacalynn let her daughter become deformed. Even though Pastor Demers was out of the house with everybody lying about what had happened with Nicole, and were saying all manner of evil lies about him, Pastor Demers interceded and got Nicole a corrective surgery,(not the original operation addressing the fibrous dysplasia) to make up for the deformity because of his ex-wife’s and guardian ad litem Rogeriee Thompson’s neglect. This is neither Pastor Demers’ opinion nor mine. There is documented proof, including medical research and medical documents/records which I have seen, a doctor’s letter which I have which I will quote from, and there is also a tape recording made by the doctor to protect Pastor Demers because the DCF, the courts, Rogeriee Thompson, and Jacalynn, all were out to get Pastor Demers and needed to cover up what they were doing because they knew that they would all go to jail if it ever came out.

Dr. John Roberts wrote a letter, which I have right here in front of me as I write this, and which is hand-signed by him. It has “BROWN UNIVERSITY PROGRAM IN MEDICINE” on the upper left, and “RHODE ISLAND HOSPITAL” on the upper right, two crests in the middle (Brown University’s and Rhode Island Hospital’s), and it has his name and titles: Professor, Orthopaedics and Pediatrics (Brown University), Surgeon-in-Charge, Division of Pediatric Orthopedics (RI Hospital) etc. on the letterhead. In this letter, dated March 11, 1987, Dr. Roberts indicated that at the time he wrote the letter,(which was after the two years of neglect by Jacalynn Demers, when Pastor Demers was not allowed to even see his children)“corrective osteotomy with internal fixation was indicated.”

By this time, as stated before, due to Jacalynn Demers’ and neglect and failure to do the needed physical therapy, and Rogeriee Thompsons’ neglect in her job as guardian ad litem, Nicole’s condition had worsened terribly instead of getting better, and her hip and leg were deformed. Fibrous dysplasia was still there because it is chronic and incurable and there is no medicine for it, but if Jacalynn had done the recommended physical therapy, Nicole wouldn’t have gotten deformed and wouldn’t have needed the corrective surgery. Dr. Roberts wrote:“the deformity of the right upper femur had clearly increased from 1984 to 1986 and had become an unacceptable amount of coxa vera. I felt that corrective osteotomy with internal fixation was indicated…insofar as Nicole is concerned, the deformity of the right upper femur as it existed in 1984 would probably not need osteotomy, but in 1986, it had increased to the point where it was indicated.”(End of quotes from Dr. Roberts’ letter.)

It should be noted that we have gleaned from our research currently that Nicole still has fibrous dysplasia to this day.

Over time, all of the details will be told of how terrible this whole situation was and how the courts, led by Judge Thomas Fay, Rogeriee Thompson (who was then a lawyer and the guardian ad litem for the children, and is now a judge), and Nicholas Colangelo ignored, supported, and abetted the terrible neglect and abuse by Jacalynn Demers of the three children who had been put in her sole custody.

During this whole time frame, Rogeriee Thompson, Nicholas Colangelo (Jacalynn’s lawyer) and Judge Thomas Fay (who then went on to become Chief Justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court but has since been removed, disbarred and is now a convicted felon) were all saying that Pastor Demers was wrong, and were actually saying much worse than that, in order to defame Pastor Demers and ruin his reputation so they could cover up their own crimes. As time went on, they got in so deep that they knew if it came out what was happening to the children in Jacalynn’s home, and the illegal things they had all done, not only would they lose their “gravy train”, they would all go to jail. So, they even finally resorted to framing Pastor Demers to keep him quiet.

Part of the proof that Pastor Demers was framed is a document produced by a man who was then policy chief to then Governor Bruce Sundlun, Sheldon Whitehouse (who went on to be U.S. Federal Attorney for RI, RI Attorney General, and is now a United States Senator). This document was hand-signed by Governor Sundlun and I have a copy in my possession. This document not only confirms that Pastor Demers was framed, but it is quite detailed and confirms that what Pastor Demers was saying about what Jacalynn Demers was doing and what was going on in the home after he was put out, is true.

The way this document came to be written is that the governor of Rhode Island at the time, Bruce Sundlun, received a barrage of letters regarding Pastor Demers’ innocence. Most of the people who wrote were NOT members of Pastor Demers’ church, but were various center of influence people who knew Pastor Demers and his wife and his mode of life. And because of the diversity and prominence of their positions and their non-direct relationship with Pastor Demers, Governor Sundlun felt compelled to act, and so he appointed Sheldon Whitehouse to look into this matter. These people who wrote the letters knew that Pastor Demers shouldn’t have been charged with any crime. Because of this, Governor Sundlun, as a response to the letters, appointed Sheldon Whitehouse (who was his policy chief), to do an investigation into the matter. Sheldon Whitehouse did hours and hours of research and wrote a detailed report in which he stated, among other things, that Pastor Demers was only trying to get help for his children. He confirmed that what Pastor Demers was saying about what was going on at the house was true, for example, specifically referring to the children “becoming sexually active”,“drinking and using drugs, and associating with a tough and dangerous group of youths.” As an end result of his research, he recommended to the governor that Wade Demers be pardoned.
