"I Want You to Meet the Board"


"Don't You Dare Come to Meet the Board"

< Prev.Next >

In some ways sorting through 3ABN president Danny Shelton's correspondence can be extremely confusing. Take for example his email below in which he invites Dr. Abrahamsen to appear before the 3ABN board and give his side of the story.

Danny Shelton accused Dr. Arild Abrahamsen of having an affair with his then wife, Linda Shelton, an accusation Dr. Abrahamsen denied. On April 21, 2004, Danny tells him straight out that he can meet with the board and explain everything.

Johann says that if you believe my wife needs support because of lies being told or whatever, you will come across the ocean and save her. I would be most happy for you to come and have a meeting with my board and conference President and explain to them ....


Now consider Danny Shelton's threat of forced removal if Dr. Abrahamsen dares accept Danny's invitation by coming to the May 2004 Camp Meeting, which was immediately followed by the 3ABN board meeting.

Of course, Danny was being rude in more than one way. If he didn't want Elder Thorvaldsson and Dr. Abrahamsen coming to 3ABN to appear before the board, why didn't he have the courtesy to let them know that before they bought their tickets, or at the very least, before they had already arrived in the United States?

Dear Johann,

It has come to my attention that you and Dr. Abrahamsen are planning to attend the 3ABN Camp Meeting this week. Please be made aware that you aren't welcome here at this time and under these circumstances. If you choose to come anyway, you will place us in a position where we will have to have you removed from the premises.

If you would like to discuss this with me, please call me at 1-618-627-4651 x 3009, or 1-618-218-2519.

Danny Shelton

Are such wild and extreme fluctuations of thought the product of a sane and reasonable mind?

For the record, Seventh-day Adventists believe in due process, in considering the accused to be innocent until proven guilty, in letting all parties in a dispute fairly present their side of the story. Thus, the general feeling among Adventists would likely be that Danny Shelton should never have broken his promise to Dr. Abrahamsen that he could come and present his side to the board.
