History of Athena Dean and Jessica Gambill See “Family”
Not that Prosecutor Mark Larson, the expert assigned by Dan Satterberg, cared about the long, long history of havoc the Dean’s and Gambills had in stirring up trouble.
Like Athena Dean this is who King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg and Mark Larson chose to put front in center in a trial with zero evidence. In fact, the facts fully demonstrate it would have been impossible to commit the crime.
Athena Dean has a few close associates who are happy to assist her in any slander against Sound Doctrine Church. Unsurprisingly, they are all disgruntled ex-church members, or other Christians who have willingly bought into Athena’s fictionalized “story” to suit their own agenda.
One of the ex-church members is Jessica Gambill. Ever since leaving Sound Doctrine Church in 2006, she has always been ready to support anyone who wants to stir up the gossip and slander.
Jessica was involved in a well-publicized divorce case in North Carolina (2009-2010), in which she filed a statement and even flew in to appear on the witness stand on behalf of an adulterous husband who was using Sound Doctrine Church as a convenient scapegoat for his infidelity. Unfortunately for him, Jessica’s ridiculous testimony was thoroughly debunked and dismissed, and Sound Doctrine Church was completely vindicated in the final verdict.
Of course, Jessica always claims to be acting in the interest of “forgiveness” and “praying” for those still “trapped” in Sound Doctrine. So you may be surprised to discover this loving, Christian benevolence apparently includes yelling at people and calling them an “asshole.”
Jessica posted this publicly on someone’s Facebook page on November 22nd, 2011 – days before the hate crime meeting and long before the arrest of Malcolm Fraser. Prosecutor Jason Simmons response? “So what.”
By supporting Athena, Jessica, and their associates, you should understand this is the kind of “Christian love” you are condoning.
And, if you are not standing against them, you are supporting them. There is no middle ground.
The Dean Team
Coincidentally, Jessica’s sister is now married to Ailen Dean, the step-son of Athena Dean. They, along with a few other ex-church members, now form the core of the new “Dean Team.”
Don’t be fooled. There are no hordes of people whose lives have been “destroyed” by Sound Doctrine Church. There are just a small number of ex-members with their own ax to grind, all eager to be taken advantage of by Athena Dean playing to their built-in hostility. They stir up trouble at every opportunity and go after everyone who leaves the church for any reason in order to turn them against their former friends and family members. None of them, quite evidently, have actually had their lives “destroyed.” Not even remotely. Of course, this small group usually remains safely hidden behind-the-scenes – with all kinds of convenient justifications – while using other gullible individuals to do the “dirty work” for them.
Acts 14:2 But the Jews who refused to believe stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers.
These are the same people who have previously illegally hacked into the church’s message board and set up a fake MySpace page for Timothy Williams so they could publicly mock him. Again, you may want to think twice before associating yourself with that kind of “Christianity.”
Luke 6:43-44 No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers.
