I have been friends with Thadeaus for several years and can say that he is an individual that has earned my trust and respect. Though Thadeaus's behaviors have not been perfect in the past, I think that the characterizations made of him by this group of people are absolutely ridiculous and I think the tactics used by this group to slander, threaten with violence and ban him from the community are destructive and wrong.

In 2009 Thadeaus asked me to take part in an accountability process to address his past behaviors in a relationship with one woman. I was a part of this process and witnessed Thadeaus's willing participation, despite his understandable reservations. Thadeaus agreed to all the requests made of him in the circle by the woman. The group met several times and for long hours. Eventually the accountability process was called off.
