THE MAYOR’S CULT, EPISODE 3: RACHEL MOLANO

BETHEL TO BRISTOL small

in previous issues, The BRISTOLIAN has been exposing how an EXTREMIST WEIRDO Californian Christian cult known as BETHEL SCHOOL OF SUPERNATURAL MINISTRY (BSSM) wields UNDUE and DISTURBING influence over Our Reverend Mayor, challenging the secular nature of his office.

Readers are now encouraged to visit a very good report by independent journalist Joanna Booth on BSSM “graduate”/cultist Rachel Molano who wormed her way into The Mayor’s confidence, found at https://medium.com/@jo.stillawake/who-is-marvin-rees-faith-adviser-and-what-effect-does-she-have-on-him-3fd67c3737d2

Despite claims that Ms Molano no longer works for the council, it seems she still has an ACTIVE BRISTOL CITY COUNCIL EMAIL ACCOUNT. Why? And what else can she access at the council?

This story has become a CAN OF WORMS. The BRISTOLIAN continues its investigations.

MEET THE REVEREND’S GURU

MEET THE REVEREND’S GURU
Kris “Voldemort” Vallotton

Last issue, we revealed our Reverend Mayor’s close connection to a Christian evangelical cult based in Redding, California known as BETHEL SCHOOL OF SUPERNATURAL MINISTRY (BSSM). In this issue, we investigate its co-founder who met with the Mayor for dinner at a swanky hotel in London. An event entered in the Mayor’s public business diary for January as ‘discussing US-BRISTOL TRADE RELATIONS’.

BSSM co-founder and the church’s globe-trotting Apostle Kris ‘Voldemort’ Vallotton appears to be Marvin’s GURU and if you visit his blog you will discover a very Californian mix of state-of-the-art web design and new age personal ‘self-help’ waffle. All effortlessly fused with guru Vallotton’s brand of ‘Apostolic’ evangelism, the belief in MIRACLES, SUPERNATURAL AGENCY, ‘FAITH CONQUERS ALL’ etc.

This living Apostle who claims to be part of a ‘ROYAL PRIESTHOOD’ asks his followers to ‘disciple’ cities and nations by seeking out and converting their ‘PEOPLE OF INFLUENCE’.  Whether they are business leaders, politicians or clergy (we know from the FoI on their meeting that Marvin is well known to Vallotton already, as is his spin-doctor Kevin ‘Slo’ Slocombe). Everything is focused on personal faith conquering all. Perhaps the most indicative blog entry in regards to Marv’s prospective social policy is ‘8 STEPS FOR BREAKING FREE FROM A POVERTY MINDSET’.

Voldemort’s blog also seems to hold particular venom for abortion and casual sex. Have a glance at front page blog entry ‘THE POLITICAL SPIRIT IS KILLING OUR BABIES’ for example, where ‘Secular Humanism’ in league with the ‘silence’ of doctors and scientists is held responsible for the ‘MASSACRE OF FOETUSES’.  At the end of this diatribe we are told to ‘rise up, and be courageous’?!? Sex, we are told is like ‘gluing two pieces of wood together’, and you ‘leave bits of the other piece of wood attached’ if you ‘prise them apart the next morning’. Hence, as Voldemort tells us, ‘A PIECE OF YOUR SEX PARTNER REMAINS ATTACHED TO YOU FOR LIFE!

Perhaps the most bizarre (and revealing) blog entry from Marvin’s personal guru is this one on ‘ACTIVATING YOUR CHILDREN INTO A SUPERNATURAL LIFESTYLE’ that oddly juxtaposes alleged ‘ABORTION GENOCIDE’, childish ‘sightings’ of angels and demons (the latter identified because they’re black) and hints of unspecified ‘monsters in closets’.

But perhaps the most pertinent question of all in relation to our own Reverend Mayor is why is he so wrapped up in such a RICH WHITEY cult from the USA? And why does he worship in Hotwells (and formerly, Clifton) instead of Easton or Lawrence Hill where he lives, for example?

ST MARVIN’S-UP-THE-CREEK NEWSLETTER #21

The usual suspects in my congregation have now started making sub-optimal noise about my infrequent trips to the United States to bear witness alongside my mentor, the Texan psychotic preacher and notorious anti-communist homophobe, the Pastor Righteous Loon. These visits to the Pastor Loon’s southern California ranch with the two swimming pools (one with an impressive outdoor bar area), a gym, a state-of-the-art home cinema and, of course, the breathtaking  Soft Porn Renaissance Chapel styled by Jeff Koons are vitally important prayer retreats. Yes, I’m often accompanied by my communications specialist Mr Slocombe and the slightly nutty Miss Molano, our church’s Faith Advisor, and, yes, some mainly harmless mildly satanic practices led by Pastor Loon and very enthusiastically embraced by Miss Molano do sometimes occur. All that is happening, however, is that myself and your senior church leaders are taking the opportunity, just four or five times a year, to get an ecumenical buff and a spiritual replenish. All to better deliver your religious needs at St Marvin’s. What is there to complain about here?

Some of you have raised the issue of Pastor Loon’s attitude to abortion after that unfortunate report in the Washington Post last month regarding his widely misinterpreted ‘genocidal holocaust’ remarks. Isn’t it easy for journalists to take the complex ideas underpinning our faith, remove any context and then twist our wise words so that they become what they may not mean? But let me assure you that as your Reverend and a Christian I remain substantially committed to an idea of abortion as practice. Can I be any more unequivocal than that? Some of you have also queried aspects of the Reverend Loon’s lifestyle such as his five wives, his private jet, his close links to the arms trade and his recent claim that “Climate change is a Jewish-Communist plot”. To quote Pastor Loon, “I’m Only My Brother’s Keeper If My Brother Is My Sheep” and Pastor Loon is clearly not a sheep. So what have his personal lifestyle choices got to do with me? Please, let’s not covet thy neighbours’ lives. Let’s instead live our simple lives better unto the glory of god.

Finally, I have received some negative comments regarding the Pastor Loon’s fantastic recent book “How Big Money and the Markets Can Move Mountains”, especially, his claim that Jesus has risen and walks among us in the form of the derivatives markets, fractional reserve banking and high levels of consumer debt. Let’s face it, I’m no economist and you’re certainly no economist so how can we possibly sit in judgement on the Pastor’s new and exciting ‘Corporate Free Market Theology’ that’s seizing headlines and transforming our religious communities? “Judge not and you will not be judged,” as the Pastor preached to me recently. The wisest of wise words from the wisest of the wise. Amen.

BETHEL TO BRISTOL – MARVIN’S FREE MARKET GRAVE-SUCKER CULT

BETHEL TO BRISTOL small

Following up a Freedom of Information request about the Reverend Rees’ expenses for a dinner in London in January, The BRISTOLIAN uncovered his close ties to the controversial weirdos of California’s BETHEL SCHOOL OF SUPERNATURAL MINISTRY (BSSM) and their deep cultic infiltration of his office.
 
BSSM is a Christian evangelist cult that believes everyone has apostolic power that can be unlocked through a variety of STRANGE PRACTICES. Their students are assured they can ‘perform miracles’ such as curing the sick and ‘raising the dead’ or, even, ‘walking through walls’. BSSM has come under fierce attack from fellow evangelicals, many of whom find its practices ‘UN-CHRISTIAN’, ‘GNOSTIC‘, or even ‘NECROMANTIC‘.

The latter accusation stemming from one of BSSM’s more bizarre practices – ‘GRAVE SUCKING’ – whereby the acolyte lies down on the tomb of a deceased Christian celebrity to ‘suck up the residual spiritual energy’ from their bones.
 
The cult is more materially minded, however, when it comes to seeking connections to POWER and INFLUENCE. Its closely allied religious organisation ‘Transform Our World’ largely dismisses the role of a church.

Instead, it breathlessly imagines a vast global network of brainwashed business, community, political, professional and faith leaders “walking out to their call to full-time ministry in the MARKETPLACE“, which allegedly plays “a vital part in the establishment of God’s kingdom on earth”.
 
From the FoI, we know that there was a long correspondence between the Reverend’s office and Kris ‘Voldemort’ Vallotton, co-founder of Bethel Church in Redding, California and ‘Senior Associate Leader’ of BSSM.

Voldemort’s personal blog is HIGHLY REVEALING with its SUB-PAEDO and RACIST OVERTONES as well as HATE SPEECH that unequivocally LINKS ABORTION TO “THE DEVIL”.

Vallotton also travels around the world, making connections with people his cult decides are “INFLUENTIAL“. In the emails we discover that Marvin and Vallotton are already very familiar, as is the mayor’s spin doctor “Slo” Kevin Slocombe who was also invited to attend the dinner, paid for by BSSM at St Ermin’s Hotel, Westminster, alongside “SEVERAL MPS” and an “ARCHBISHOP“.
 
Expenses for the London trip were paid by the MAYOR’S OFFICE (some ambiguity exists over whether this fare was paid back by Marvin). While BCC’s claim that ‘£25’ would cover the cost of Marvin’s meal (so it “didn’t need to be declared’) is absurd as it’s barely the cost of a ‘WAGYU BURGER’ on the upmarket hotel’s menu, never mind drinks or accompaniments. We’re told that they discussed ‘US – BRISTOL TRADE RELATIONS’, whatever that means.

Perhaps Rachel Molano, the Reverend’s ‘faith advisor’ and a BSSM ‘graduate’ can tell us more? Especially as we checked and DISCOVERED she is on the Mayor’s Office’s payroll – in flat contradiction to the OUTRIGHT LIE they told in a separate FoI – as a paid public servant. Rachel, please declare the true extent and objectives of your cult’s interests in our city?
 
Surely it’s time that Bristol’s Labour Party forced Mayor Rees and his fellow cultist sidekick Slo Kev to resign their party memberships? Magick Marv can stand as an independent for the Supernatural Necromancer Inclusivity Party or whatever he damn well likes, but surely not Labour?
