Charles J. Pace (see pictures below) joined the Branch Davidian church in 1973. By 1981, he was
challenging the authority of leader, Lois Roden. She exiled him from the church property from 1981 to 1984.
He returned after Lois' disastrous marriage to David Koresh, in a time when George Roden was trying to
take control of the church from his mother. Exactly what happened I don't know. One source believes this
is when Pace began claiming that he was Christ and his wife was the Holy Ghost.
Charlie Pace claims that he warned Vernon Howell (who later changed his name to David Koresh) exactly
nine years to the day and hour before the fire “that he was leading the apostate movement and that the
Judgment within the House of God would begin as outlined in 1 Peter 4:17 and with the slaughter of Ez.
Chapter 9.” (Charlie certainly has a hell of a memory. The quote is from his web site.) At any rate, Charlie
was attempting to assume the prophetic office and take over the church. George Roden took Charlie's
camper, pulled it off the church property and turned it over in a ditch. Charlie went back to his homeland,
David Koresh took over the church property in 1988. He held it until the April 19, 1993 fire. Charlie returned
to the church property periodically starting in 1994 and moved onto the property in 1997. Again he was
trying to take over the leadership of the church. Since my religious message was his main competition, he
character assassinated me in ugly ways. In 1994 literature he called me: evil, wicked, greedy and vile (in
separate sentences), accused me of having a doctrine of masturbation (true, I say, if you think its self-
abuse, don't do it), and accused me of taking donations meant for Koresh's survivors (never, there isn't
enough money to make me say I followed David Koresh). The more the world respected me, the more
careful he became, but he hasn't stopped.
I lived on the property from Aug. 1993 to the summer of 2000. Charlie and Clive Doyle (the leader of David
Koresh' surviving church members, Clive moved onto the church property in 1998) formed short-lived
“united churches” several times to evict me from the property. (How can two churches unite when one
says Koresh was a Messiah and the other says he was a flawed man?) Clive and Charlie tried legal action
as well. In 2000, Charlie (who has no legal claim on the church property) dropped out of the lawsuit over
the property. Later that year, (despite my trusteeship appointment by George Roden) the jury found that
neither I nor Koresh's survivors were trustees of the church. I left and traveled for four years writing and
giving away free literature.
When I returned in the fall of 2004, both Clive and Charlie and the McLennan County Sheriff's Department
threatened me (the latter with arrest for criminal trespass). Clive and Charlie built a fence after I moved
onto the property. Charlie was so sure that he was untouchable that he mocked me as he stole the lumber
from my display after he chopped it into pieces. Sure enough, the Sheriff's Dept. refused to take a
complaint because I was not bruised.
I was living in the camper on the back of my pickup. Charlie had my truck towed off twice in the winter
and the spring of 2005, so I moved to a farm four miles away and stayed with friends until I turned 65 at
the beginning of 2008, and retired. Currently I am a house guest with uncertain plans except for the
intent to keep writing and fighting...
Clive Doyle went broke and forfeited his double-wide in the summer of 2005, so he is no longer on the
property. Which brings us to the legal situation. When I returned in 2004, I cut off the squatter's rights
(adverse possession) of Clive and Charlie's “united church.” They needed five years “peaceful and
exclusive possession” to file a claim of adverse possession on the church property, I cut them off at
I have no doubt that McLennan County courts will happily give the property to Charlie whose
publications ignore not only the Standoff, but also the role of various government entities in the long
term persecution of the church.
I watched on May 25, 1993 as Judge Bill Logue awarded Koresh's survivors the Branch Davidian church
property despite the fact that I testified at the hearing that Koresh did not have the five years peaceful
and exclusive possession required by law and held up newspaper articles that proved it. I suspect that
only the fact that I filed copies of those newspaper articles in the legal file stopped Judge Logue from
issuing the court order. (This immediate award of the property to Koresh's survivors would have set up
a government claim on the church property under the Federal Felony Forfeiture Laws.) Like I said, given
any excuse the courts will award Charlie the church property.
Armed only with a notarized document from Teresa Moore, who was named by Lois Roden to continue
her message, I moved a welded steel house on the church property on June 12, 2008. I was claiming the
Retiree Benefits promised in the church law.
Charlie showed up a few hours later, bruised me and used his tractor to drag my house down the road.
He left it in a ditch a half mile away. I used two instant cameras taking the pictures displayed on this
I purchased an Alltel wireless phone a few days earlier (254-227-8158 ) and added $35 to the basic $10
they gave me. All so I could call 911 if I needed protection from Charlie. I should have been suspicious
when the Alltel people refused to activate the phone in their office, but I went to the library to computer
activate it instead. Although I didn't use the phone (I was frantically busy finishing the house), when I
added the $35 I noticed that they were taking their daily $.75 out of my account, so I assumed the phone
was working. When I tried to use the phone to call 911, it told me that it was not activated! I had to flag
down a passerby and use his cell phone to call 911.
When deputies of the McLennan County Sheriff's office arrived, they kept talking to me, then making
phone calls. I had to threaten to take political action against the Sheriff twice to get the deputies to take
a complaint. (I told them there would be hell to pay if they did not treat this as any other complaint.)
Finally, after I waited under a tree on a 95 degree afternoon for an hour and a half, they took my
complaint. The deputy shown is reading Teresa Moore's letter of permission. Note also the damage to my
I doubt that the Sheriff's Department will pursue my case. If they actually charged Charlie with assaulting
me or damaging my property, then I could use those charges to fight Charlie's squatter's rights on the
grounds that his possession of the property was not peaceful.
I can not tell you who is behind the long term persecution of this church (other than Satan) although the
scripture says it is the One World Government. I can tell who is wearing one of the jackboots that have
stepped on me repeatedly (5 arrests but no trials, two unsolved arsons, several refusals to take
complaints, repeated threats of arrest, etc.). One jackboot is worn by the McLennan County Sheriff's
Department. The other jackboot is worn by the American courts, who have aided and abetted two land
ripoffs of the Branch Davidian church (so far). In America, injustice is legal as long as its done by the

I doubt that the Sheriff's Department will pursue this case. If they actually charged
Charlie with assaulting me or damaging my property, then I could use those charges
to fight Charlie's squatter's rights on the grounds that his possession of the property
was not peaceful. Squatter's rights require 5 years peaceable and exclusive
possession in the state of Texas. Charlie Pace will own the church property in the
summer of 2010 unless God stops him.
