Harvard Law School Professor Elizabeth Bartholet Calls For The Outlawing Of Home-Schooling!
See my open letter to her in response Here
For years Rescue the Perishing has warned of the inherent sinfulness of public education. For years we’ve stood against sex-ed, drug-ed and so-called abstinence education, as they are all unBiblical. Abstinence curriculum are the worst, pretending to teach about marital union in a good but powerless way, apart from Christ, His Word, the parents and their pastor. Many ministries profit selling these curriculum while overseeing the destruction of children’s souls. Here’s one of the most egregious. They have fraudulently served for over a generation to convince parents they can keep their children in public schools. Or even in functionally Christ-less government-accredited private schools that used unBiblical abstinence curriculum. (Note: The root word to accredited is credo, that is schools teaching the government’s humanist approved creed.) With two generations of sexual madness it is obvious this has all failed. Why?
This following admonition represents a Biblical view of education and the training of Christian children. Sadly, most Christians are unaware of the Biblical mandate on these matters. Hopefully the following will clearly set forth the Law of Scripture as it relates to the mandate of parents to provide an explicitly Christian education with Christ and His Word as the Center of all learning and Wisdom. God has given children to their parents as a stewardship, and has charged them with a Divine Covenant responsibility to teach then in the Way of the Lord. (cf Genesis 33:5, 1 Samuel1:27 and Psalm 127:3). Instructional training and oversight of the young is given to parents and grandparents.
Exodus 10:2 “That you [Parents and Grandparents] may tell in the hearing of your son, and of your grandson, how I made a mockery of the Egyptians, and how I performed My signs among them; that you may know that I am the LORD.”
Humanism, including the myth of evolution and the ideologies of Marxism which are taught in public schools, is a substitute for the true and living God. This is a clear violation of the first principles of God’s Law.
Exodus 20:3 “You shall have no other gods before Me.”
Colossians 2:8 “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world.”
Education must be predicated on the foundation that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and that all wisdom and knowledge is hid in Christ, not on humanistic thought. Government schools dishonor parents (and by example teach children to as well) by claiming that the State can nurture children better than the parents. This too is a violation of the LAW.
Exodus 20:12 “Honor your father and mother.”
Exodus 20:15 “You shall not steal.”
Government schooling forcibly takes money from property owners (who may not even have children) to pay for the education of other people’s children. This is legal plunder (socialism-taking from the “rich” to educate the poor) and it is immoral. Such plunder is legalized theft and is a violation of the 8th Commandment. In principle, civil authorities are condemned in Scripture for such thievery in other texts. See Deut. 17:14-17, 1 Sam. 8: 15,17, Is. 56:9-11.
It is hypocritical that schools expect Johnny not to cheat on a test (taking answers from Billy-i.e. Billy’s intellectual property), but see nothing wrong with taking money from Billy’s dad (i.e. his physical property), to pay for Johnny’s education. 19th century pastors warned of this theft in the first days of public schools.
Government schools do not operate upon the Biblical ethics that insist that all charity or giving to the poor should be voluntary (See Matthew 6:1-4). “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:7)
While taxation is not Biblically immoral, confiscatory taxation for things that are outside of the proper jurisdiction of the civil government (i.e. abortions, education, etc.) is immoral.
Consider The Many Commandments Centered Around Biblical Education
Matthew 5:19 “Jesus said, ‘Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and so teaches others, shall be called least in the Kingdom of Heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.’”
Deuteronomy 6:6-7, 11:19 “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”
This describes a 24/7/365 discipleship paradigm, centered on the commandments of God.
Deuteronomy 32:46 “Take to your heart all the words with which I am warning you today, which you shall command your sons to observe carefully, even all the words of this law.”
Education is modeling ﬁrst, instructing second. God’s law must be written on their heart.
Psalm 1:1-2 “Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on His law he meditates day and night.”
Christians are blessed only if they avoid the unGodly counsel their children will receive in government schools, and the socialization of sinful classmates and the mocking, scoﬃng attitudes they pick up in school.
How can a child meditate day and night on God ‘s law in government in a school where the mention of Jesus’ name is banned, unless it is in vain? He can do this when his parents teach him to apply God ‘s law to every area of life.
Contrast “Blessings” promised in this passage with the “Curses” in Deuteronomy 28, and see which one you want to receive.
Psalm 34:11 “Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.”
How are children supposed to learn the fear of the LORD? Parents must teach it to them by instruction and example!
Psalm 78:4 “We will not conceal them from their children, but tell to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and His strength and His wondrous works that He has done.”
How can parents obey this command if they put their children in a public school that prohibits teachers from telling the students about his wondrous works? Christians should not allow the faithfulness of God in history to be removed from, or downplayed in, their textbooks or ignored by unGodly teachers. Parents must take responsibility for passing on true providential history to their own children and grandchildren.
Proverbs 1:8 “Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.”
It is assumed that the father and mother are doing the teaching. No one else is mentioned in Scripture as having that role.
Proverbs 9:10 “Fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in understanding.”
Government schools lack the fear of the LORD, therefore cannot properly transmit wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.
Proverbs 13:20 “He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.”
1 Corinthians 15:33 “Do not be deceived: ‘Evil company corrupts good habits.’”
Children should not be placed with foolish companions. Proverbs 22:15 tells us that foolishness is “bound” in the heart of a CHILD.
Ecclesiastes 4:12 indicates that a “cord of three strands is not easily broken.”
It is hard to break a bond of foolishness once friendships with fools are made.
Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is grown, he will not depart from it.”
There is a way a child should go, and parents need to be training the child in THAT direction, not in the direction of the world.
Isaiah 38:19b “A father tells his sons about Thy faithfulness.”
This mandate is given clearly to fathers, not to another person or institution.
Isaiah 54:13 “And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD,· and great shall be the peace of thy children.”
Children who are taught of the LORD will generally be peaceful. The converse is also true.
Jeremiah 10:2a “Thus saith the LORD, ‘Learn not the way of the heathen.”’
The way of the heathen is to omit God. Government schools omit God from every subject, leaving gaping holes in everything they teach and robbing God of his glory as Creator, King, and Sovereign.
Joel 1:3 “Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.”
Education is best understood as the equipping of each successive generation to train the next. This is a family covenant matter, not a governmental mandate.
Matthew 10:32-33 “Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in Heaven. But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in Heaven.”
John 1:3 and Colossians 1:16 declare that Jesus made the world. The government schools adamantly deny this. Therefore they are disowned by Christ.
Matthew 28:18 “And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.’”
Matthew 12:30 and Luke 11:23 Jesus said, “He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me, scatters.”
Are the government schools for Jesus? Do they recognize His Lordship over education and all other areas of life? If not, they are in open rebellion against Him.
Colossians 2:3 Jesus is He “in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,” but “ Fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
Despite the clear teaching of Scripture, government schools teach that Jesus has nothing to do with education and therefore are cultivating fools.
Genesis 11:1,8a “Now the whole earth had one language and one speech…So the Lord scattered them abroad.”
Nimrod’s tyrannical effort (Gen. 10-11) to build a unified civilization in rebellion to God, centered around one language – one God-less worldview. God ended it! The Christ-less public school is no different, the foundation to modern tyranny.
Matthew 18:5-6 “And whoever welcomes a little child like this in My Name welcomes Me. But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”
Matthew 19:14b “Do not hinder (the children) from coming to Me; for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.”
Christians must not allow their children to be hindered by any other influences (instructors who omit God) from coming to Jesus.
Matthew 22:20-21 “And Jesus said to them, ‘Whose likeness and inscription is this?’ They said to Him, ‘Caesar’s. ‘ Then He said to them, ‘Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God the things that are God’s.’”
The Roman coin Jesus used as an illustration bore the image of Caesar, so Jesus said to give it to him. However, Genesis 1:27 tells us that children bear the image of God, therefore we should give them to God, not to Caesar.
Luke 6:39-40 “Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit? A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher.”
A Christian parent must not turn the leading of their child over to someone who is spiritually blind. Education is discipleship. The student is becoming like the teacher. Do you want your child to become like his atheist, Buddhist, or humanist teacher or even “Christian” teacher who omits God from everything?
Romans 14:23b “Everything that does not come from faith is sin.”
The government schools are not teaching from a position of faith in God but rather teach faith in self and in the state
2 Corinthians 6:14-18 “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”
Christians are forbidden to partner with unbelievers in the education of our children. Ungodly alliances always result in destruction.
Ephesians 6:4 “Fathers, do not exasperate your children,· instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the LORD.”
It is the father’s duty to bring his children up in the Biblical “culture” of the LORD.
Colossians 2:8 “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world and not according to Christ.”
Education must be predicated on the foundation of Christ, not on humanistic thought.
1 Thessalonians 2:11 “Just as you know how we were exhorting and encouraging and imploring each one of you as a father would his own children.”
In this passage, in the Greek, EXHORTING means, “inviting” or “calling near,” ENCOURAGING means, “consoling” or “comforting;” IMPLORING means literally, “flogging” or “scourging.”
It is assumed in Scripture that fathers are taking responsibility for drawing their children to them- selves for instruction, comforting and being gentle with them, and for their physical discipline.
1 Timothy 3:4 “He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity. Let deacons be husbands of only one wife, and good managers of their children and their own households.”
Church leaders must set the example for the rest of the Body of Christ by taking responsibility for managing their own households. If men aren’t rightly training their own children to follow God, they are not eligible for leadership in ministry.
Hebrews 11:6 “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”
Government schools CANNOT please God because they refuse to teach students that He exists and can be known.
Proverbs 16:25 “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
James 4:17 “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”

Check out this Motion to Dismiss filed by the Greene County, IA Attorney, Thomas Laehn, with the Iowa Supreme Court . Wow!
First some background. Holley was arrested by local police for reasons I haven’t studied. His 4th Amendment protection of the contents of his vehicle were violated when the police failed to give him an opportunity to have a family or friend come retrieve his vehicle. Once his vehicle was impounded they could search it, helping make their case. Police did this and filed the initial charges, not the County Attorney Laehn.
In some real irony, RTP agrees with the Court’s findings, without knowing anything about their reasoning. As a result of the Iowa Supreme Court’s ruling, Laehn was forced to dismiss the case as the evidence in the vehicle was illegally seized by the police. Police need to be held to account as they do this too often.
But the nature of the arguments hit a real chord with Laehn. Sadly, he doesn’t understand that under our Common Law system, the final Sovereign is God and His Law, but he does know how to oppose judicial tyranny. See his Dismissal Order Here for some choice statements like:
“Yet, in State v. Ingram, 914 N. W.2d 794, 799 (Iowa 20 18), the Iowa Supreme Court arrogantly declared itself ”the ultimate arbiter of the meaning … of the Iowa Constitution.”
“In fact, the justices’ assertion is reducible to the proposition that the Iowa Constitution means whatever four of the seven justices on the Court say it means, thereby turning the words of the Constitution into empty vessels into which they can pour whatever meaning they wish and replacing the rule of law,”
Indeed, the scholarly literature has unequivocally demonstrated that a justice’s personal ideological beliefs and attitudes, and not the plain meaning of the law, is the primary determinant of his or her voting behavior on the bench. See generally JEFFREY A. SEGAL & HAROLD J. SPAETH, THE SUPREME COURT AND THE ATTITUDINAL MODEL REVISITED (2002).

Wagner’s managing editor continues to provide front page promotion of the OC Pride Drag Queen event held in Orange City, Iowa October 19, 2019. See our video response to it here.
Homecoming October 1995, the board of trustees of Northwestern College (NWC), Orange City, IA, ostensibly a Christian college, held a ceremony to dedicate their then-new Bultman Center for Health, Physical Education and Intercollegiate Athletics (BCA) in the name of Dr. James Bultman, who led the fund-raising drive. At the time Bultman was the President of NWC. Rescue the Perishing was there that day flying an airplane over their festivities pulling a banner which read: Dr Bultman: Why Cover For An Abortionist? We were joined by a member of Redeemer United Reformed Church of Orange City, the late Elmer Reinders seen here in this picture (which was taken of Reinders at a later public protest of NWC). Together, we passed out this flier to those attending the dedication ceremony.
It exposed the fact that the then-recent edition of the alumni publication (CLASSIC) which provided high praise of Northwestern alumnus Dr. Leon Schimmel, left out the fact that he was a major Davis, CA abortionist.
We had a passionate caller from inside NWC’s administration office informing us that Schimmel had donated money to the BCA, but told us we couldn’t quote them nor would they provide us any records. We never have been able to confirm it. In this flier we cited our letter of warning to Bultman, “Your silence only compounds the problem. It does not bring about regeneration, repentance or restoration for Dr. Schimmel.” Over the years mixed reports came in that some NWC constituents were very angry and some were thankful for our public rebuke. (Separation of sheep and goats, that sort of thing.) The day of the event one Dutchman came close to assaulting Dorr.
But to God be the glory, one report came in 20 years later of a then young student whose parents came from out-of-state that weekend to attend homecoming with him. The father took this flier going in to the dedication ceremony and read it, listening to very little of the speakers. In the parking lot afterwards the father turned to his son and said, “Christian College – Bullshit!” The son transferred out at semester break, did his undergraduate work at another university and later finished a professional school training elsewhere in Iowa. Over twenty years after we handed these out this man active in the medical community came to our office to thank Dorr saying, “God used you to open my eyes.”
Meanwhile, NWC’s silence over the last two decades has certainly compounded the problem with Schimmel. Here he is pictured at a July 2017 visit to the Promise Community Health Center (PCHC) in Sioux Center, IA, then under the direction of the Nancy Dykstra.
Here was Paul Dorr’s post on PCHC’s FB wall exposing him, which was quickly deleted by PCHC soon after it was posted.
In an August 23, 2019 letter mailed to PCHC they were asked to provide a copy of their grant application and funding agreement for a recent $600,000 grant they’ve received, presumably from a government agency or a non-profit corporation used to route taxpayer money through. As of press time they have not responded to us.
PCHC’s web page is clear they provide family planning services starting with young people the age of 12. Family planning violates Genesis 38:1-10. The common twisting of this text that Onan ‘refused his Kinsman-redeemer duties’ is not valid, as Deut. 25:7a & 8b and Ruth 3:9 – where Ruth is seeking a ‘covering’ not marriage – demonstrates that marriage is optional, among various methods to preserve the deceased brother’s name and property. We must necessarily conclude that Onan’s sin, as most of the early Reformers testified, was his monstrous act of “spilling his seed”….birth control. Or in PCHC parlance “family planning”. (1) See John Calvin’s commentary on Genesis 38 below.
So 12 Year Old Children Get Confidential Family Planning Services At PCHC?
PCHC states that “Through funding from the Family Planning Council of Iowa, Promise offers a full range of confidential family planning services…” The Family Planning Council of Iowa also funds family planning “counseling”. As PCHC is receiving grant money, depending on it’s source, such money often stipulates the recipient to provide abortion referrals as a part of their “counseling.”
Even the Trump Administration’s new prohibition against making abortion referrals for groups receiving family planning Title X money (which is being challenged in court) still provides that “…they may still offer what the rule calls ‘nondirective counseling on abortion.’” (I.e. The address for the nearest abortion clinic, their phone number and what nurse to ask for.)
Van Ruler Likes Abortionist’s Visit To Sioux Center
Stephanie Van Ruler was one of the staff members who was instrumental in helping PCHC receive this $600,000 grant. See her recent interview here.
She was also one of the Facebook “Likes” to the PCHC July 2017 post about California abortionist Schimmel touring their facility and providing many “wonderful stories”. See the 6th “Like” down on the black chart on this post on the abortionist’s visit.
Do family planning services at Promise Community Health Center include abortion referrals? This would include surgical abortions and Depo-Provera chemical abortions.

What’s Ultimately Driving This? Is It Proliphobia?
Sexual revolution scholar E. Michael Jones has coined a word for the view held by most ‘near barren’ western nation leaders, pastors and married couples. He calls it ‘proliphobia‘. The selfish ‘semi-barren’ are no longer replacing themselves with the minimum average number of 2.1 children needed per married couple (average children today being 1.6) to sustain a national population. As a result, they often need to assuage their guilty consciences.
They come to irrationally fear those ‘people groups’ who don’t share their selfishness. Those in these ‘people groups’ are the ones who most often welcome lots of babies into their marriages and homes. God is using these other people to convict and intimidate historic Christian North American people. Instead of repenting and seeking God’s guidance, the ‘semi-barren’ (who are often now also Marxist in their view of government) launch family planning programs designed to convince those in these other groups to be selfish like them! This also assist the rationalization of their ‘near-barren’ generational suicide.
In his book, Libido Dominandi: The Sexual Revolution and Political Control Jones cites author Alfred Sauvy’s book, Excessive Force: Power Politics and Population Control, “The fear of seeing others multiply thus leads to a diminishing vitality, to a recrudescence of Malthusian attitudes in populations already sapped by demographic aging. At the same time the populations that elicited those fear remain unaffected…The usual perils of preachers who address only the already-converted are therefore compounded by the risk of reducing their very numbers from one generation to the next.” (p. 540, Jones)
Note: Tesla’s CEO and billionaire Elon Musk recently told an Artificial Intelligence conference in Shanghai that the greatest risk facing the globe today is “population collapse”. Sadly, the folks at PCHC and many (most?) NW Iowa Christians today simply don’t understand – try as they may – that God is not mocked with such selfishness!
A hint that this may be what is going on in Sioux Center is that PCHC founder Nancy Dykstra said a few years ago that she, “…became aware of the shifting demographics in Sioux County due to immigration.” Don’t ever be fooled that such idealists like Dykstra are motivated by Christ honoring compassion, when they steal taxpayer money from their neighbors and future generations to provide health services for the poor. Humanists do this all the time but why do ostensibly Christians join in such glory hounding, Christ-less labors of “charity”?) They also declare, “In the past, they had to drive as far as Sioux City for the closest family planning clinic.” Clearly in the past, there was little demand for such services in Sioux County. Now that the selfishness is throughout most white Reformed Christian people their own guilt is compelling them to seduce the people groups from Mexico and other South American countries to join them.
Rescue the Perishing urges people from these other groups not to listen to the likes of PCHC. Also don’t take their bait on inflationary living, large piles of debt, etc. Just because historic North American Christians have made a cultural/demographic/financial suicide pact with the devil, using sexual perversion and debt, doesn’t mean you have to join with us.

If any woman ejects a foetus from her womb by drugs, it is reckoned a crime incapable of expiation and deservedly Onan incurred upon himself the same kind of punishment, infecting the earth by his semen, in order that Tamar might not conceived a future human being as an inhabitant of the earth.” Calvin’s Commentary on Genesis 38:8-10, translated from the Latin

At the time of Robert Mugabe’s death this stand for Christ by a young pastor should now be remembered.
In February of 2002, Reformed pastor Rev. Dr. Derek Carlsen from Zimbabwe, in his mid-30s, married with three children (as memory serves), published open letters to Zimbabwean then-President Robert Mugabe and to the pastors of his country. He did this at great risk to his life. God blessed his obedience and spared his life while many other Christians were being persecuted, murdered and run out of Zimbabwe. The letters can be found here: The President of Zimbabwe and here Letter to the President March 4th 2002 and here Open Letter to Pastors
Rev. Dr. Derek Carlsen and his family survived and now pastor a church in Illinois.
Put Rev. Carlsen’s stand in the context of this record of some of the atrocities of ROBERT G. MUGABE. And our political leaders hail him as the great statesman! (BTW the current president was his consigliari executing his orders!)

An attorney familiar with R.J. Rushdoony’s works on God’s Law and his writings on the 5th Amendment and a past law school student of James Duane (the best 5th Amendment law school professor in America) provided Rescue the Perishing this 5th Amendment plea. We have friends who are laminating this plea and placing it in their bill-folds. This is the real 5th Amendment.
“On the advice of my lawyer, I respectfully decline to answer on the basis of the Fifth Amendment, which—according to the United States Supreme Court—protects everyone, even innocent people, from the need to answer questions if the truth might be used to help create the misleading impression that they were somehow involved in a crime that they did not commit.”
The verdict came in today in my 5th degree criminal mischief case in the Sioux County, Iowa District Court. (Sioux County is heavily populated by Dutch Reformed Christians, who’ve let their once strong faith seriously backslide.) I was found guilty. I offered no defense of my actions as, per the
prior request of the Sioux County Attorney Tom Kunstle, the Cherokee County, IA Magistrate Lisa Mazurek (pictured above) previously denied my ability to present the very defense of my actions which I intended to argue. As a result I also waived my right for a Jury Trial because there was no way I would be acquitted by the narrow law being applied and the court-ordered limitations on my defense. What I didn’t want was the enemies of God crowing, “He was found guilty by a Jury of his peers in the most conservative county in Iowa.”
After conviction, Kunstle then recommended to the court that I pay the highest fine possible amount under the law: $650 plus court costs because my act was “so brazen”. But Magistrate Mazurek assessed me the lowest amount of $65 plus court costs and surcharge, totaling $147.75.
Sioux County Magistrate Dan Pluim (pictured above), who had previously recused himself from the case without any real cause still showed up in the back row to watch the proceedings.
Meanwhile, see my full Press Release here.
More troubling, last week I presented a Motion to the Court which she never responded to. All other Motions and Requests were acted on very promptly. But this Motion, entered prior to waiving my Jury Trial, was to amend the Jury instructions which County Attorney Kunstle had proposed for her approval. I asked to amend it to include instructions as to where the authority comes from for the Magistrate (or any Judge) to require the Jury to only rule on the facts and that they must use only the law the Magistrate provides them to determine if the facts conform to this law, or not. To further understand my request see this copy of the Exhibit that was attached to my request of the Court.
I filed several other motions after that. Before I waived my Jury Trial Magistrate Mazurek ruled on the later Motions but never responded to my Motion to amend the Jury instructions. Silence! Why? Could it be that there is no authority in law and that for 400 years the principle, under Common-law (which also brought us ‘due process, ‘right to face our accusers, ‘ ‘right to examine evidence’, ‘open court rooms’ (no more Star Chambers), et al), has been well established until the last few generations, that the Jury always retained the power to ignore or nullify the Judge’s orders?
Note: Sitting for voir dire once years ago I was asked by the attorney for one party that ‘If I was selected to be on the Jury panel would I be willing to swear an oath that only the Judge would be allowed to rule on the law and limit my vote to the facts applied to the law the Judge provided us.’ I asked the attorney who would be administering such an oath. He replied that it would be senior district #3A Judge Frank B. Nelson. I then turned to the Judge on the bench and said, “Then he’d be violating His oath of office to ensure the defendant is to be tried by a jury of his peers with all due process protections under the Iowa Constitution (Article 1, Section 9) including the Jury’s authority to rule on both the law and the facts.” I advised those in the courtroom to seek out the Jury Trial of William Penn back in England (whom Pennsylvania is named after) and read the history of how the Jury in his case was willing to go to prison before yielding up their power to void the King’s law against preaching. (The King had sent the jury to jail until they came back and honored his unjust law and render a guilty verdict. Judge Nelson never disputed it, never looked up and simply grunted, “Dorr, you can go.”
One more note: I once asked Federal Judge O’Brien in US District Court in Sioux City on a point of law. The question was, ‘what could he do to punish jurors if they decided during jury deliberations to ignore his orders forbidding them from ruling on the law? And instead voted to nullify it in the particular case before them.’ Red faced he replied, “Nothing”. I replied, “Funny you didn’t tell those jurors that before you sent them off to deliberate.”
Sanctions on the career await any attorney who dare advise members of a Jury that they can rule to nullify the law as well as on the facts.
So why is this all important?
If I had been allowed by Magistrate Mazurek to argue the nature and cause of my case by dragging in a library board member and have them read from these filthy children’s books and then advise them that they can rule on the law as well as the facts, the possibility of my being acquitted by an Orange City , Iowa Jury would have been greatly enhanced. Per the request of the Sioux County Attorney Tom Kunstle the game was “rigged” to deny me an acquittal before I ever walked into that courtroom.
Meanwhile, prior to my sentencing I then closed with a portion of the national anthem of the Netherlands titled Wilhelmus, below, regarding William of Nassau-Orange – of whom Orange City, IA was named in honor of. (Many in the media asked about this statement after the case was over).
Statement to Magistrate Lisa Mazurek prior to sentencing.
I would like my closing statement to be the recitation of the final two stanzas of Wilhelmus, the national anthem of the Netherlands. It was written in the 16th Century as a gift to William of Nassau of the House of Orange aka William the Silent. And it was penned as if it was in first person, telling his story. William of Nassau was the leader of the Dutch independence movement breaking from the rule of the King of Spain.
One hundred years later it was conceived essentially as the anthem of the House of Orange-Nassau and its supporters.
Finally, according to Wikipedia (which is not always reliable) the melody of this song is used, with rewritten English lyrics, as the alma mater of Northwestern College here in Orange City. This city is named for the House of Orange. And here in Sioux County, Nassau Township lies just south of Hwy 10 here in Orange City.
Your honor: Wilhelmus
“…Pray God that He may ease you. His Gospel be your cure. Walk in the steps of Jesus. This life will not endure. Unto the Lord His power I do confession make, That ne’er at any hour Ill of the King I spake. But unto God, the greatest of majesties I owe obedience, first and last, For Justice wills it so.”
I closed stating, Your honor I burned those books because I, too, owe obedience unto the living God that I serve and to provide justice to the children of Orange City. Like William of Orange, it is His standard of justice I submitted to. And now I place myself in your hands madam.

The late District Associate Judge Cameron Arnold (raised a Presbyterian) of Spirit Lake, IA, once reported to Rescue the Perishing’s Paul Dorr that he served as President of the Iowa Judges Association for one term in the late 1980s. He remained a member of the Association for a short time after finishing his term and then dissociated himself with it. When asked why he separated from them Judge Arnold replied, “There is something ominous, something dark about judges. They truly do believe they are God on earth. The only hope is for the Church to be humbled and stirred up to hold the judiciary accountable or this branch of government will destroy Christian civilization. It will never reform from within.” He encouraged me to press on against such immoral people seeking the bench.
He also observed that married judges, who never divorced make legal divorce more difficult for couples as they push them to reconcile; and that the number of younger divorced lawyers seeking the bench (back then) will throw open wide the destruction of marriage, said Judge Arnold.
My then-pastor Rev. Phil Schmidt, Westminster Reformed Church, Alton, Iowa and I spent one afternoon in his Dickinson County, IA court chambers discussing theology, law, God’s Law, etc. Judge Arnold was a wise man with a broad knowledge base and a keen intellect. He loved to balance mercy with justice.
For years after his death my wife and I enjoyed spending time with his widow Karen, (now deceased) discussing the things of the Christian faith. She was honored to allow us to name our judicial reform efforts The Cameron Arnold Judicial Reform Initiative, (CAJRI) even defending her decision when lawyers called to ‘warn her’ about me. She told me that she told them “‘Cam’ would support Mr. Dorr’s work with this.”
Below is a list of some of District #3 Judges that CAJRI has tried to publicly hold up to God’s Law with efforts that I believe Judge Arnold would have appreciated.
NOTE: But worse than the Judges, will be the effeminate Pastors who no longer preach God’s Law to a people who so desperately need to hear it (in its full exposition) and apply it by grace to their lives and communities. These silent shepherds then falsely convince themselves that they have nothing to say in the public square while such judges listed below, run amuck. (Note: If the reader wants to start a life changing study of the Law of God on their own and they have time to listen at the Gym, behind the windshield, or for private studies at home, start here.)
Meanwhile, Cherokee, Iowa County Magistrate Lisa Mazurek will need to appeal to the current panel comprising the District #3A Nominating Commission (found here) if she wishes to again apply, the next time a higher court vacancy opens up in NW Iowa.
Chuck Barlow, Spirit Lake – When confronted with his adultery against the ‘wife of his youth’ who worked to put him through law school, he never denied it and babbled over the phone as to how he thought he was a good judge, worthy of retention vote. Reports of his second wife were not honorable.
Tom Hamilton, Spirit Lake – details of his divorce were not known, but he was caught lying to his fellow commission members to get them to table their nominating committee meeting and open the application process back up. A survey of all the county clerks of court in District #3A proved he lied to his committee. Why did he do this? Too many God-fearing lawyers had applied. According to Judge Arnold at the time, Hamilton sent Barlow down to Spencer to recruit Pat Carr to apply.
Patrick Carr, Spencer – recipient of Hamilton’s chicanery and could never provide me a plausible answer as to why he wasn’t interested in applying for the nomination the first go-around, but a few weeks after Hamilton’s lie, he suddenly wanted to apply. A lawyer from Lyon County contacted me later with a heart-wrenching account of Patrick Carr awarding primary custody of a young girl to a man’s ex-wife, who admitted in court that she placed her young daughter down to sleep in the closet of the same bedroom where she was having sexual relations with one of her several paramours. With no evidence this ex-wife promised Carr that she’d ‘get better.’
Jim Scott, Rock Valley – After his nomination he was asked to give an account of the divorce of his first marriage. He refused. He was later asked to confirm or deny three independent reports (which I assured him had not been passed on to anyone by me) from individual Rock Valley citizens (none aware of the others), that he previously had a significant drug problem. He refused to deny it and filed a ‘security risk’ report on me with his County Sheriff. His Sheriff called laughing and said, “Well I haven’t heard this before, but his over-reaction tells me to keep on eye on him.”
Carl Peterson, Rock Rapids – He was asked in writing to account for two varying sordid stories of his committing adultery on his wife. The party mentioned as his paramour was, according to court records, his second wife. According to a local attorney she had previously been his family baby-sitter. He never confirmed nor denied the allegations and said he refused to respond to the inquiries.
Nancy Whittenburg, Spencer – Once divorced, provable misandrist, previous ¼ owner of Whittenburg Budweiser dealership while presiding over OWI cases (family later sold company) and had previously served as Chairperson of the Planned Parenthood Advisory Council of Spencer. PP has promoted teen sexual sin and the killing of pre-born babies for a couple of generations. Dorr was the recipient of several accounts of Whittenburg’s deviant personal moral conduct (prior to her appointment to the bench) but all parties were frightened to go on the record as she was soon to be sworn in as a judge.
Jeff Neary, Merrill – The Judge who opened the door to homosexual marriages in Iowa by first illegitimately recognizing Iowa jurisdiction over a Vermont homosexual civil union. CAJRI lit-dropped several thousand fliers on church parking lots in District #3B prior to his retention vote.
Dan Vakulskas – This was the District Associate judge that Sioux County Attorney Kunstle and Magistrate Judge Dan Pluim first mentioned to take my case after Pluim recused himself. I objected to Vakulskas in Court. He wasn’t selected. Judge Vakulskas left his family’s Sioux City law firm before being appointed to the bench in January 2019. His mother stepped down as Chair of the Woodbury County Republican Party, some years ago, after I exposed that this same family law practice was the legal defense team for the entire porn industry in Sioux City. Now he sits in Judgment in Sioux and Plymouth Counties.
Meanwhile, three God-fearing and very experienced lawyers, each with one marriage and several children applied several times over the last 25 years and not one of them once received a nomination to the bench by the Nominating Commissions of Iowa District #3. Several years ago one was privately told by a lawyer-member of the #3A Nominating Commission, that he’d never be nominated because his religious views on marriage would slow down the divorce court. Two of the three no longer practice law in NW Iowa. Divorce and family court are big money for many Iowa lawyers, not an unforeseen possibility by some nearly 50 years ago.
“The business of divorce has become so profitable to a large number of communities which specialize in catering to migrants (sic. into a state/region) seeking divorce that the states in which such places are situated will make divorce laws easy enough to attract trade.”
