News and Opinion about Jerome Frandle, 2x2 overseer in Michigan

Jerome Frandle is the first 2x2 overseer that I know of that was sent to jail. Jerome George Frandle is part of a large organization started by William Irvine (a Mason) in about 1897. This organization takes in a lot of money each year and has been racked with allegations of sexual abuse involving minors. I feel sad for the poor children abused by workers!

On May 28th, 2013, Jerome Frandle pled no contest to the charge of Failure to Report (Child Sexual Abuse) and was sentenced to $200 fine plus court costs and other fees for a total of $733, 100 hrs. of community service which must be done in Michigan, and 4 days in jail.

It was also reported that the 2x2 overseer Ray Hoffmann was present again at the sentencing of Jerome Frandle along with Greg Harger. Bill Denk was not present, likely because there was a warrant out for his arrest at this time.

Proverbs 21:15  It is joy to the just to do judgment: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.

Finally, some justice towards the children who have not been protected by their parents from the workers and overseers who have allowed it and worked to cover up child sexual abuse.

The overseers are not as "untouchable" as some felt they were. Let this be a warning to the overseers who whisk workers to other fields after they have sexually abused children.

I am going to order some transcripts and then start on Darren Briggs case. I called to get copies of Bill Denk's case, but they said those records are not public until he has been arrested and appears in court. Since I found out Bill Denk was arrested and sentenced, I am trying to get those court records.

Organization Geographical Areas

The 2x2 organization spans the globe, being in at least these areas: Africa, Argentina, Australia, Barbados, Brazil, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Columbia, Czech Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Europe, Finland, France, Gabon, Germany, Greece, Haiti, Holland, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Kenya, Korea, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, Moldova, Namibia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Norway, Peru, Philippines, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Syrian Arab Republic, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, United States, USA, and Vietnam.

I am sure there are more countries, but this is all I have for now.

There are things that overseers do:

  1. Recruit more workers and recruit more 2x2 followers
  2. Proclaim the 2x2 message in a "field"
  3. Receive money from followers
  4. Approve candidates for being 2x2 workers
  5. Tell workers which "fields" they will "labor" in
  6. Keep track of all the workers
  7. Keep track of who professes under which workers
  8. And of course, move workers who sexually abuse kids to another field without warning other parents.
  9. Whisk workers to other states to avoid the "friends" finding out about it!

Could you be an overseer and move pedophiles to other fields without warning parents? Could you preach at a meeting after you moved across state lines a worker who molested a kid? Do you have what it takes to be an overseer?
