THE PROCESS CHURCH AND DOMINATRIX FOUNDER - MARY ANN MACLEAN
"Believed By Many Devoted Cult Followers To Be An Incarnate Goddess With A Nazi Regime Mentality"
By Synthia Esther
Mary Ann never made any apologies, for instance, about having considerable sympathy and respect for the Nazi regime. Doubtless it suited her authoritarian personality. A story I have heard her relate more than once is of her as a small girl of nine or ten, who found herself leaving her physical body and being transported into Hitler's bunker during World War II. There she would slip around the table in her astral form whispering in to the generals' ears. Whether she ever claimed to observe der Fuehrer's legendary rages, I don't recall, but if she had I can only imagine she would have egged im on in his carpet-biting fenzies." - Love, Sex, Fear Death - The Inside Story Of The Process Church of the Final Judgment, by Timothy Wyllie, Adam Parfrey (Editor), page 56.
The dominatrix supreme, Mary Ann applied her experience as a former London call-girl whose speciality included power and control. Coupled with a keen combination of insights into human psychology and lustful seduction, Mary Ann knew how to keep Process members coming back for more. Enlightenment was a desired result, by intelligent types who were academic in thought, mannered in protocol. Mary Ann was childless, but maintained her own breeding program of sorts among the members. With the children reported to have received less kind care than the dogs.
THE PROCESS CHURCH
The Process Church of the Final Judgment was a religious cult group that began in the 1960's, with Englishman Robert DeGrimston (The Teacher), aka - Robert Moor, and Mary Anne Maclean (The Oracle) as founders. Robert and Mary Anne originally met in the Church of Scientology, married and later divorced in 1974. Mary Ann continued on with her cultic religious intentions and founded, "The Foundation Chuch of the Millennium," which later became known as Best Friends Animal Society. The "Process Church" was an off branch cult sect of the Church of Scientology (founder L. Ron Hubbard). Often deemed a Satanic group, in that they worshipped both Christ and Satan. Their core belief centered around God being made of four separate parts, Jehovah, Christ, Lucifer, and Satan. And in order to achieve enlightment all four parts must be worshipped.
"Their belief is that Satan will become reconciled to Christ, and together will come at the end of the world to judge humanity, Christ to judge and Satan to execute judgment. Vincent Bugliosi, the prosecutor of the Charles Manson Family trial, comments in his book "Helter Skelter" that there may be evidence Manson borrowed philosophically from the Process Church, and that representatives of the Church visited him in jail after his arrest," (Wikipedia)
CHARLES MANSON CULT AND THE PROCESS CHURCH - KILLING FOR SATAN IS A NOBLE MISSION
On August 9-10, 1969, Charles Manson ordered the murder of several prominent Caucasians. Including in Mason's mass slaining was actress Sharon Tate, coffee heiress Abigail Folger, and wealthy supermarket president Leno LaBianca. These murders exposed the Charles Manson cult to the world at large. According to Bob Larson, "Larson's New Book of Cults," Tyndale House, page 295, "The philosophy Manson preached is based in the Process Church, also known as the Foundation Faith of God. In late 1967 Robert DeGrimston published 'As It Is,' which spelled out the Process philosphy that Christ and Satan destroyed their enmity and came together for the End. Chirst is considered the judge and Satan the executor of the judgments made by Jesus. Therefore, to love the Devil and kill for him is a divine mission of love for Christ. This duality of Christ and Satan greatly appealed to Charles Manson, who become known as the Christ/ devil to his adocates.'"
Larson goes on to site the magazine (called The Process), devoted to the cult in which one issue marched a band of Nazis spewed from the mouth of a fiery pink skull, trampling people perishing in a fire. While Hitler's face appeared on a funhouse mirror, and a human being shown burning to death. God and Satan will never be allies (Revelation 20:2). Common to Sado-Masochism themes of practice, "fear is protrayed as power." Vincernt Bugliosi states that Mason preached about fear as an energizer and weapon, enabling a person to reach new heights and leave bitter failures behind, just as "The Process" magazine depicts.
MARY ANN AS A CHILD FACED POVERTY, ABANDONMENT, ABUSE, AND NEGLECT
In an investigative article titled "The Process" by Gary Lachman, May 2000, ForteanTimes, Mary Ann's father was said to have left before she was ever born in Glasgow in 1931. Mary Ann's mother abandoned her and relatives raised her, amidst poverty and neglect. Mary Ann later emigrated to the States. Being attractive, "... it's a good chance she paid her way through prostitution, " says Lachman. Mary Ann went on to marry US boxing champ Sugar Ray Robinson, which ended in divorce. Lachman states Mary Ann than set up a top flight customer connection and a high class call-girl service. "Manipulative, demanding and volatile, she knew how to exploit emotional needs and fostered dependence in those around her," says Lachman.
Kathryn L. Duvall, "The Process," Religious Movements. University of Virginia, http://religiousmovments.lib.virginia.edu/nrms/Process.html , Retrieved 2007-09-16. Duvall writes, "There was a successful attempt to reestablish The Process under new leadership in 1979 and in 1987 a vigorous expansion began. These chapters were founded upon the practice of helping the homeless. This group came to be known as the Society of the Prcesseans and was generally a secular organization. The faith and teachings of The Process were declared obsolete, the archives destroyed, and the Church disbanded in 1993. Members of the Society of the Processeans continue today as a secualr community action organiztion (Church of the Final Judgement)."
CHILD ABUSE AND THE PROSTITUTION LINK
Mary Ann Maclean's life of sexual deviance and prostitution is not uncommon for children raised in abuse and neglect. Victims of child abuse are at high risk of becoming prostitutes in adolescence or as adults. More than 50% of prostitutes were sexually abused as children (Silbert & Pines, 1981: Bagley & Young, 1987). 62% of females are sexually abused by age 18 (Finkelhor, David and J. Dzluba-Leatherman, Victimization of Children, American Psychologist, Vol 49:3, 1992). 96% of teenage prostitutes were sexually molested in childhood (CCPA, 1992). Over 75% of juvenile girls identified as delinquent by court have been sexually abused. When they run away from the abuse at home, they are often labeled as delinquent ( Calhoun et al, 1993). Women who are sexually abused during childhood were 2.4 times more likely to be victimized as adults as women who were not sexually abused (Wyatt et al, 1992). Victims of father – daughter incest are four times more likely than non – incest victims to be asked to pose for pornography (Russell, 1986).
* Mary Ann De Peyer (formerly Mary Ann Maclean), died on November 14, 2005 in Kanab, Utah. She had reportedly been in a comatose state for two years prior to her death. -
SON OF SAM - DAVID BERKOWITZ AND THE PROCESS CHURCH LINK
David Berkowitz, formally known as "The Son of Sam" was born Richard David Falco, on June 1, 1953. He is the American serial killer and arsonist whose murder case involved the killings of six people and the wounding of seven others, in New York during the years 1976 and 1977. Berkowitz confessed to his crimes and has been imprisoned since 1977. Berkowitz claims that he was commanded to kill by a demon who possessed his neighbor's dog. Later Berkowitz gave an amended confession stating he was the shooter in only two of his crimes. And the other victims were killed by fellow members of a violent Satanic cult.
Journalist Maury Terry investigated the Son of Sam Shootings and interviewed Berkowitz several times. Terry uncovered evidence he argues support the idea that a violent offshoot of The Process Church was responsible for the Son of Sam murders and many other crimes. What is most ironic is that David Berkowitz gave claim of a demon possessed dog protesting that he kill, and The Process church is now involved with animal rescue, renamed as the *"Best Friends Animal Society."
SON OF SAM IS NOW CALLED "THE SON OF HOPE"
While in prison, David Berkowitz accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior, and is now called by all who know him as "The Son of Hope." David Berkowitz's personal testimony has helped many offering God's salvation plan, and the hope in Jesus Christ our Lord. David provides personal witness pointing to our heavenly Father, Savior, and Friend who freely forgives, with mercy,grace, and everlasting love.

BY PERMISSION, DAVID BERKOWITZ'S PERSONAL SALVATION TESTIMONY:
Ten years into my prison sentence and feeling despondent and without hope, another inmate came up to me one day as I was walking the prison yard on a cold winter’s night. He introduced himself and began to tell me that Jesus Christ loved me and wanted to forgive me. Although I knew he meant well I mocked him because I did not think that God would ever forgive me or that He would want anything to do with me.
Still this man persisted and we became friends. His name was Rick and we would walk the yard together. Little by little he would share with me about his life and what he believed Jesus had done for him. He kept reminding me that no matter what a person did, Christ stood ready to forgive if that individual would be willing to turn from the bad things they were doing and would put their full faith and trust in Jesus Christ and what He did on the cross by dying for our sins.
He gave me a Gideon’s Pocket Testament and asked me to read the Psalms. I did. Every night I would read from them. And it was at this time that the Lord was quietly melting my stone cold heart.
One night, I was reading Psalm 34. I came upon the 6th verse, which says, "this poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him from all his troubles".
It was at that moment, in 1987, that I began to pour out my heart to God. Everything seemed to hit me at once. The guilt from what I did... the disgust at what I had become... late that night in my cold cell, I got down on my knees and I began to cry out to Jesus Christ.
I told Him that I was sick and tired of doing evil. I asked Jesus to forgive me for all my sins. I spent a good while on my knees praying to Him. When I got up it felt as if a very heavy but invisible chain that had been around me for so many years was broken. A peace flooded over me. I did not understand what was happening. But in my heart I just knew that my life, somehow, was going to be different.
More than eleven years have gone by since I had that first talk with the Lord. So many good things have happened in my life since. Jesus Christ has allowed me to start an outreach ministry right here in the prison where I have been given permission by prison officials to work in the Special Needs Unit where men who have various emotional and coping problems are housed. I can pray with them as we read our Bibles together. I get the chance to show them a lot of brotherly love and compassion.
I have also worked as the Chaplain’s clerk and I also have a letter writing ministry. In addition, the Lord has opened ways for me to share with millions via TV programs such as Inside Edition in 1993 and A & E Investigative Reporter in 1997, what He has done in my life as well as to warn others about the dangers of getting involved in the occult.
I have also shared my testimony on several Christian TV programs such as the 700 Club in 1997, the Coral Ridge Hour (Dr. James Kennedy), and on Larry King Live in 1999. For all these opportunities I am most thankful, and I do not feel I deserve this.
THERE IS HOPE FOR YOU TOO
One of my favorite passages of Scripture is Romans 10:13. It says, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Here it is clear that God has no favorites. He rejects no one, but welcomes all who will call upon Him.
I know that God is a God of mercy who is willing to forgive. He is perfectly able to restore and heal our hurting and broken lives. I have discovered from the Bible that Jesus Christ died for our sins. Yet He was without sin. He took our place on that cross. He shed His blood as the full and complete payment God required for our wrongdoing.
The Bible also says, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23)." Furthermore, it says, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23)."
These passages make it clear that everyone has sinned. Yes, some like myself did so more than others. But all have done things wrong. Therefore, we must all make the decision to acknowledge our sins before God and be sorry for them. We need to turn from our lives of sin as well as believe that Christ was and is the Son of God.
You must believe that Jesus Christ died and was buried, and on the third day He rose again in victory, for death could not hold Him. Ask Christ to forgive you. Declare Him as Lord of your life and do not be ashamed to do so. To reject Jesus Christ and His work on the cross is to reject God’s perfect and only gift of salvation and eternal life.
Friend, here is your chance to get things right with God. The Bible says, If you confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, and if you believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart mankind believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession of salvation is made (Romans 10:9,10)." So believe in your heart that these words from the Bible are true.
Please consider what I am saying. I beg you with all my heart to place your faith in Christ right now. Tomorrow is promised to no one.
You see, I am not sharing this message to simply tell you an interesting story. Rather I want you to taste the goodness of God in my life, a man who was once a devil worshipper and a murderer, to show you that Jesus Christ is about forgiveness, hope and change.
I was involved in the occult and I got burned. I became a cruel killer and threw away my life as well as destroyed the lives of others. Now I have discovered that Christ is my answer and my hope. He broke the chains of mental confusion and depression that had me bound. Today I have placed my life in His hands. I only wish I knew Jesus before all these crimes happened - they would not have happened.
May God bless everyone who is reading this message!
