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?

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?
