The First Annual Great Canadian Frock OffReverend Kevin Annett, M.A., M.Div. Salem-News.com
Where You get to help Name, Shame and Expel notorious clergy persons in your Neighborhood!
(TORONTO / VANCOUVER) - In the wake of growing revelations of hideous crimes and their coverup by mainstream churches across Canada (and elsewhere), we're pleased to announce the commencement of The First Annual Great Canadian Frock Off.
This nation-wide community event is your chance to publicly identify, defrock and permanently banish child raping priests, corrupt clergy and other wolves posing as sheep in your communities. It's prompted by the refusal of the courts, the government and the police to arrest those in the churches who are proven criminals and a threat to our children and community.
The process is simple: you submit the names and addresses of suspected or known criminals among the Christian clergy, and we'll investigate and take action.
Once the guilt of your nominee is established beyond a reasonable doubt, our Frock Off Action Group (FRAG) will perform citizen's arrests on the guilty clergy person, strip them of their robes of office, and publicly banish them from our communities - all on film, before a world wide audience!
This year's Nominees represent all three of Canada's most notorious mainline denominations: the Roman Catholic, Anglican and United Church of Canada. They are:
1. Glenn Dion, alias "Glenn the Snatcher": The head parish priest at Vancouver's Holy Rosary Catholic Cathedral, Dunsmuir and Richards st. According to church staff and diocese sources, as of January 2012, Glenn has personally stolen more than $650,000 from the parish funds, including by taking a personal cut from every collection of every Mass. Glen is also responsible for covering up his theft by firing staff, abusing and threatening others, and issuing fraudulent statements and doctored accounts.

2. Russell Crossley, alias "Russ the Rapist": This retired United Church clergyman formerly of Metropolitan United Church in Victoria, BC is a convicted serial rapist who is still on full pension and benefits from the church despite having served prison time for having serially raped women and underage girls in United Church congregations across Canada for over thirty years. His actions were known and protected by top United Church officials since 1962. Russ still "ministers" part time with local churches in Victoria and has never faced de-frocking or even penalties or disciplinary action from the United Church.
What's that under your robe, Bob?
These are but a few of the hypocrites and criminals in robes who will face official Frock Offs and FRAGing in the days ahead.

"I gave Kevin Annett his Indian name, Eagle Strong Voice, in 2004 when I adopted him into our Anishinabe Nation. He carries that name proudly because he is doing the job he was sent to do, to tell his people of their wrongs. He speaks strongly and with truth. He speaks for our stolen and murdered children. I ask everyone to listen to him and welcome him."
Chief Louis Daniels - Whispers Wind
Elder, Turtle Clan, Anishinabe Nation, Winnipeg, Manitoba
A Canadian clergyman, Kevin Annett has for nearly twenty years led the movement to bring to light and prosecute atrocities in Christian “Indian residential schools”, and win justice for survivors. Expelled in 1995 from his former United Church of Canada for exposing murders in that church’s Indian residential schools, and persecuted and blacklisted for his efforts, Kevin is now an award-winning film maker, author, social activist and public lecturer who works with victims of church violence and genocide all over the world. In 2009, he helped to establish the five-nation International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State, which is seeking to indict church and government leaders for crimes against humanity.
As a result of Kevin’s tireless efforts on behalf of native people, the Canadian government was forced to issue a public “apology” and reparations program concerning Indian residential schools, in July of 2008. In giving him the name Eagle Strong Voice in 2007, Anishinabe elder Louis Daniels declared, “Kevin Annett is doing what few of his people have done, and that is to speak about the crimes they committed against many of our nations and their children. He has earned a place forever in our hearts and history. He is a brave and prophetic man. I ask everyone to welcome him and heed his voice.” And scholar Noam Chomsky wrote in 2006, “Kevin Annett is more deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize than many of those who have received it.”
Special thanks to Bill Annett
