letter from a pedophile

A Glimpse into the Mind of a Child Molester

Following is "Rev. Daniel Dhaene's" Letter to the Editor submitted in response to a published Belgium article on Father's Touch (May, 2002). The editor refused to publish his letter, however provided me with a copy at Dhaene's request. 

Reading the letter seems to give the impression that Rev. Daniel Dhaene knows me, my siblings, or that he has been an insider in our family. The last time I spoke with Dhaene was 29 years ago, prior to escaping his house at the age of fifteen. Having changed the spelling of his family name, Dhaene has moved to the Philippines for 'reasons unknown', where he currently resides with his fifth wife and their 3 small children, all boys under the age of 10.

A 'pardon' which 'Rev. Daniel Dhaene' refers to in his voluminous rebuttal is not uncommon in Canada. A pardon is not a judicial reversal of a conviction, nor does it exonerate an ex-convict of his crime. It does make it easier for ex-convicts to gain employment, access housing and other essential services. A pardon cannot seal Police records and can be revoked by the Canadian Government at any time.

Reproduced here is an edited version of Reverend Daniel Dhaene's letter. I've taken the liberty to cut lengthy Bible verses and statements which were overly offensive to my family members. I consciously leave in self serving justifications, rationalizations, untruths and half-truths in order that you the reader may experience a rare glimpse into the mind of a serial pedophile.

An Open Letter to The Krant Van West-Vlaanderen

Toilet Paper . . .

In reply to the article of Friday the 17th of May 2002 by Donald D'Haene of Canada, who takes great delight in vilifying his father some 28 years after the fact.

It is extremely difficult to defend yourself to statements made in a book of which one has not read or seen a copy.

Reading some of the statements made in your Newspaper, I can see that some things have been exaggerated to make my past as a member of the Jehovah’s Witness Cult even worse than it was in reality. I am not in any way trying to whitewash my past sins, for I hate my past just as much as anyone. What my son failed to mention is the very fact that my life was totally changed and that the reason it was brought to trial was not for the sins committed, but because I was actively engaged in exposing the realities and facts of the Jehovah’s Witness cult. Had I remained a Jehovah’s Witness, it would have never have been revealed to the world, or brought to trial, and the family would have been united and never broken up. Yes, indeed; Jehovah’s Witnesses do keep criminal activities, or sexual wrongdoings under wraps, as long as you remain within their circle!

As my oldest Son Ronny well knows, and expressed, to me personally, that even murderers who are Jehovah’s Witnesses are under their protection. Donald was driven by the Jehovah’s Witness elders, Circuit and District Servants or leaders of Jehovah’s Witnesses to expose me and have me prosecuted. The Police Inspector’s wife was Jehovah’s Witness as well, so if you have any intelligence at all, you will readily . . .
