About 7 years ago, I was on what was formerly known as the "Yahoo group". Basically it was an Internet based social group of ex-NTCCers who were sharing their experiences, (horror stories) while in the NTCC. Pam Morse (Norton) was on the group and she posted this letter which she wrote to the group. This letter came first hand from her. I was on the group forum the day she posted it.
Hey Don, read this entire post before you get half way through it and start blowing a gasket.
Now this is not new news as it's been mentioned on this and DnA's blog. DnA have it posted on their blog with a few additions/side notes but this is a copy of the legit original letter which Pam typed. Now before you read the letter, the reason I'm posting this is to get some opinions from our readers. Don (from Don and Ange's blog) and I are friends and over the last several years have talked to each other on the phone frequently. Well the biggest disagreement Don and I have ever had, has concerned this particular letter. In the past, I've made reference to this particular encounter between RWD and Pam as "Sex". Don has made reference to this encounter as "Rape and or child molestation". I don't see it as rape or child molestation and here is why. I feel it's borderline rape but the reality is, it would be hard to prove in a court of law and here is why.
I certainly don't see it as child molestation because regardless of her age at that time, like it or not, Pam was legally married at the time that she admits in the letter to have quote "allowed" Davis to again quote "fondle" her and again as she said quote "to put it bluntly". This would clearly suggest that at a minimum, there was some serious touching in a sexual nature going on.
Secondly Don refers to it as RAPE. Well I just looked up the word RAPE and the last part of the definition was quote, "without the consent of the victim" end of quote. Well as Pam wrote in her letter in her own words, "I allowed" him to do this. Well unfortunately for a prosecuting attorney or in this case Don, the statement "I allowed" clearly suggests consent and not only consent, but more importantly consent from a legally married woman, regardless of her age. So from a legal standpoint, it's not likely with the evidence of this letter, that a court of law would have had much success convicting Davis of rape or child molestation but rather a "REAL" Godly church leadership would have found him guilty of adultery, abuse of power and strong psychological manipulation of a YOUNG married female.
Could she have resisted? Sure but that is a whole lot easier said than done in a cult when the leaders of that cult and specifically Davis have such control of your life. Now, Diana Taylor said that Davis came to her place one time when her husband was not home and she flat out refused to let him enter. But you know what, it's not the same for each person and Diana Taylor was no doubt more mature and Diana Taylor's mother didn't raise her in the organization like the sick, sad, sorry mother or Pam Morris (Norton) namely Barbara Norton Warwick. Now Barbara Norton Warwick is a sick twisted woman.
Do I think that Davis used and abused his position in order to gain the confidence of a YOUNG woman who was a member of his church and the wife of a husband who worked for Davis and was also his church member? You better believe it. Do I think that Davis manipulated a much younger woman, namely Pam, and used strong powers of persuasion to gain unsolicited access to her blouse and dress/pants? You better believe it!!! Do I think that Davis the con artist double standard hypocrite used proven known cult tactics to brainwash his church to such a degree that he could have so much control over specifically (young impressionable women) that he could manipulate this particular situation in such a way so as to get Pam to "allow" him to have sex with her? No doubt.
Now for the record, Pam did not say that Davis had intercourse with her but in my book, touching breasts, hand in her pants, and fondling is hardly any different and in most cases certainly leads to intercourse. You can make a guy or girl get off with your hand or mouth, it doesn't take "private part to part" contact. I'm not saying that Pam got off either. Having said that, Davis wasn't just going by Pam's house "daily" to shoot the breeze, (the actually frequency unknown) so there was definitely some stuff going on. If Davis could manipulate your mind, he could manipulate your body also, so to what degree that Pam "allowed" Davis' advancements, we'll never know, but I do know that Davis wasn't going by there to play tiddlywinks and he knew what he was there for and so did Pam.
Was Pam a victim??? You best believe it. Rape victim? In a court of law? Possible, but somewhat of a stretch as to whether or not you'd ever get that one to stick. Does Pam feel she was raped? Most definitely. She said so. Is Davis a scum bag either way you look at it? If you don't think so you are an idiot. Rape, adultery, sex outside marriage.... Once I read this letter, Davis wouldn't have ever given me one ounce of spiritual advise and neither would Kekel or Olson for that matter. Kekel and Olson are just a guilty as Davis because they brushed it under the carpet and ran Pam off to shut her up. I wouldn't stay in the NTCC with this knowledge. Your an idiot if you do. Are you stupid enough to believe that Pam would have admitted to this if it never happened? She said she allowed it for crying out loud. Who would lie about that? What benefit would it be to Pam to ADMIT that she allowed a man 3 to 4 times her age to have sex with her if it never even happened???
So a while back, Don and I had our worst argument which seemed to have nearly broke up our friendship over this very topic and I'm interested in the opinion and comments from others after you read Pam's letter below.
