Former New Mexico cult leader asks to be released from prison | KRQE News 13

Those of us who knew her, and are no longer under her control, know what she’s capable of. She’s a master of deception, who loved inflicting “rottenness” on others, her way of administering her god’s justice. Now she’s saying she can’t “bear the stench of the rotten-ness (Sic) over” her life, but she sure enjoyed dishing it out to others. Even her own daughter says, “I can only hope she expires soon.” I’m a mercy over judgment kind of person, but Deborah Green is reaping what she has sown. Sad, but true. If she were to come clean, and openly repent of her wicked ways, apologizing to all she has harmed, then maybe some of the rottenness over her life would lift. But I don’t think it’s going to happen in an appeal.

Informational article, but once again, I just want to say I wasn’t physically locked up. I feared leaving, because I was duped into believing that if I left I’d go to hell. This was my last chance. My prison was mental. Plus I couldn’t just leave my children.

And I didn’t escape. I could have left at any time. After 6 months of shaming, THEY kicked ME out.

This was clear in my deposition presented at trial in 1989 at the Sacramento Superior Court. In fact, the Judge said to me, “but you were free to leave.”

Yes, your honor,” I said, “but Deborah Green told me over and over that if I left I’d go to hell, and I was too afraid not to believe her. I was convinced that she was God’s prophet.”  



It’s been a long drama, but after nearly twenty years the verdict regarding the transfer of my 1989 CA judgment to New Mexico, against the Greens, or ACMTC, is finally in, first from the court of appeals, then from the NM Supreme Court: my law suit is NOT time barred. Unbelievable, I know: it’s so ancient! Once again, my thoughts are that we reap what we sow. The Greens and their army of followers eluded this CA judgment for over 30 years, moving, changing personal names, changing organization’s name multiple times, purchasing property with cash, money orders, hiding properties under another’s name, and further hiding properties in fake trusts. Basically, their deceitful actions voided any time bar.

the incarcerated Deborah Green

Nailed, but not to the cross. This is not persecution, not martyrdom. This is incarceration for horrible crimes committed.

I swear I can sometimes feel her suffering. But I feel Jim more.




Jim Green’s sentencing

With a plea deal Jim received 10 years of incarceration, followed by 3 1/2 years of probation. Word is that during sentencing he cried and apologized to M.G. for the terrible way she was treated.
Screen Shot 2018-12-18 at 11.57.29 AMJim is the one with the heart. Yes, he was Deborah’s accomplice, he’s culpable for the abuse done, and he lied to cover things up. But my thoughts toward Jim have always been that he was duped just like the rest of us. He honestly believed that his wife received visions and prophesies from God. Per recently defected ACMTC members, Jim grew conflicted over the years because of Deborah’s demands.

Such was the case in 2005 when this article appeared in the Gallup Independent:

plea deal

No second trial for Deborah Green. They did a plea bargain. Deborah pled no contest to first degree child abuse in the case of 12-year-old Enoch who died of the flu (autopsy suggesting sinus infection) on ACMTC’s compound. Enoch had no birth certificate, no death certificate, and received no medical care. Law enforcement had long received multiple complaints and concerns from families who hadn’t seen nor heard from their loved ones in years, cut off by command of “General” Deborah Green. Discovering Enoch’s death prompted a deeper investigation into the Greens, giving authorities reason to dig.

Deborah received an additional 18 years to her already 72 year sentence. She will die in prison. Alone. Justice served.

But Enoch’s life was far too short-lived.


all pending matters hearing

All pending matters hearing is tomorrow at the Valencia County Courthouse, so I think by tomorrow night it should be known if Deborah Green faces a second trial. Or not. It could go either way.

a narcissist

“A narcissist uses their religious belief to manipulate, control and dominate you through fear. They systematically take the life out of your faith and replace themselves in the center.

It doesn’t matter the religion. Major organizations such as Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, and Jewish or even minor sects such as Mormon, Taoism, Confucianism, New Age, or Rastafari can be used. Even those who do not profess a belief in God such as Atheistic, Agnostic, or Satanism can be included.

It is not the type of belief but rather how the faith is used that makes it abusive.
