Since January 2015, numerous parties including The Nelsen Residence Inc., Haven of Divine Love, Civil Rights Organization, Extend A Hand For Justice, and countless individual parties notified and attempted to reach out to all of the local churches of the Cape Coral Florida area pleading for help.  Help never came as each of those contacted elected to turn their back on an issue that they contended was no concern to them.  When Jesus of Nazareth preached his infamous Good Samaritan Parable, his message was that the Priests and Levites who crossed the street instead of giving aid to the beaten and abused traveler were not "good neighbors."  Likewise, in preparation of these specific chapters, this author also reached out to each party, informing them of his intention to include them, and requested that if there was any important information that he was unaware of that changed the story, that he be noticed.  Instead, some of the churches responded with threats of litigation.  This author will not be bullied or subjected to extortion threats to quash this story.  Either the Pastors and their respective churches turned a blind eye and crossed the street as did the Priests of the Good Samaritan Fable, or they did not.  Here are some, but not all, of the information given to the priest above who ignored these pleas for help.

THESE ARE THE PRIESTS OF THE GOOD SAMARITAN FABLE WHO IGNORED THE PLIGHT OF THEIR FELLOW MAN AND CROSSED THE ROAD

       Pastors and Churches are listed below.  The full details of their activities are detailed in the book.

     The founder of a small dedicated religious community within the City of Cape Coral Florida, Eleanor Nelsen was committed in providing the education of our smallest assets, the children of God, and providing a viable housing service to her surrounding community.  With the providing of affordable housing for the lower income senior and disability residents, her humanitarian services were one of a kind within the city limits.  In an environment where homeless shelters, missions, substance abuse treatment facilities and low cost housing were shunned, the Community Members struggled to survive.  Yet, when the evil and abusive forces attacked, made false accusations, closed down their private house of prayer, and interfered with their religious practices, the local churches of all denominations, turned a blind eye.

When the countless cries of a persecuted Christian entity is ignored, it brings shame to those who CROSS THE STREET
It is shameful.  It is Christianity under attacked within, as local Christians turn their backs.  No where else

in America has such a selfish act in Christianity ever happened, and those who did so, must be disclosed.

THE BLIND EYE OF CHRISTIANITY

*     *     *     *     *     *     *

“The only thing necessary for triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”  The triumph of evil is contributed by several factors including the possession of tremendous resources and tyrannical authority that can easily overcome all actions of good men.

 






Silence in the face of evil is itself evil.  God will not hold us guiltless.  Not to speak is to speak.  Not to act is to act.  To ignore evil is to become accomplice to it.  Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, then that good men should not look on and do nothing.






When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, and un- pitied sacrifice is a contemptible struggle.  He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it.  He who accepts evil without protesting against it, is really cooperating with it.  Integrity is the core of all character.  Without integrity, we have a weak foundation upon which to build other Christ-like characteristics.

THE FACTS

MY BOOK IS INTENDED IN PRESENTING THE FACTS.  BUT, IN ALL REALITY, IT DISCLOSES THE SHAME OF  LOCAL CHURCHES AND THEIR HYPOCRITICAL DISGRACE THAT THEY DISPLAYED.  IN ANY OTHER PART OF OUR COUNTRY, THE LOCAL CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES WOULD BE UP IN ARMS OVER A GOVERNMENT CLOSING DOWN A HOUSE OF WORSHIP AND PROHIBITING  RELIGIOUS PRACTICES.  THE SHAME AND DISGRACE IS ON ALL OF YOU.

Yes, Marni, There is No Place Like Cape Coraldocuments the numerous notifications and information the above parties received and elected to turn their blind eyes.
