Tommy Shelton Alleged Victim: Duane Clem

< Prev.Next >

Duane Clem in Shock

The importance of the following communications is very simple:

  • The only defense 3ABN president Danny Shelton gave his board chairman Dr. Walt Thompson in 2003 to counter the Tommy Shelton child molestation allegations was that Pastor Glenn Dryden had a feud with Tommy.
  • Duane Clem agrees that there was a feud and that Dryden was jealous of Tommy, a position he still holds to and that he makes plain below.
  • Yet at the same time, Duane maintains that the Tommy Shelton molestation and sexual misconduct allegations are indeed true.

Thus, the only defense given by Danny Shelton vaporizes. And as the evidence continues to roll in, it appears that Danny from the very beginning knew that this feud/jealousy alibi was a lie.

3abn, Dryden, etc., Dec 29 2006, 10:54 PM

I am Roger Clem's oldest brother and a former member of the Ezra Church of God congregation, under both Tommy Shelton's and Glenn Dryden's tenures as pastor. Let me begin by saying that I am extremely angry about the amount of information that you are plastering all over the internet, especially about something that is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.

Your "informant", Glenn Dryden, is not a credible source of information. He also made some hideous accusations against me a few years back. They were for the same reason as the ones he is leveling against Tommy Shelton: JEALOUSY. Glenn Dryden is a spiteful, vindictive backstabber when someone crosses him. He has done this with numerous people over the past several years, and took the Ezra Church of God down nearly to the point of closure. I had to threaten him with legal action myself to get him to shut his mouth.

You reference that Roger has two brothers. I am one of them. This makes it MY business. You also reference my late mother as being a strong supporter of Tommy Shelton. You have no right to speak of me or my family. As far as I know, I've never met you. Who do you think you are?

You are advised to cease this manner of posting at once. In addition, this is a PRIVATE message to you. It had certainly better stay that way.

If you wish to discuss this further (in a civil manner), you may contact me privately. Otherwise, don't mention my name.

Let this serve as a warning. If you mention my name in any of the letters and emails you're sending to anyone in your latest attack on Tommy Shelton, you WILL regret it.

To date, I have never spoken with Dr. Walt Thompson regarding this issue, nor at any other time as best I can recall. I will say that I agree with what the unnamed individual from the Church of God reportedly told Dr. Thompson, but it was NOT me, and I can honestly say I have no idea who it was. That's one issue you can finally put to rest.
