You can't copy something before it is written, Brian. But, it seems your mind is made up about me. I forgive you, and may God bless you in all you do.

??????

Tom, i thought you wanted to settle this.. but it seems that no matter the Prayer, you remain a liar!

you know well enough that my book (MANUSCRIPT) was written in 1986 .. and it was sent out from 86 through 95 to HUNDREDS of ministers and publishers including YOU and was PUBLISHED FIRST EDITION 1996...

Brian, you are making statements that have not been proven in a court of law.



looks like we just will have to prove this...

Your information is coming from a website and not legal documents.

the information is NOT from a simple website, it is from YOUR OWN LEGAL DOCUMENTS! Cost 1000.00 but the transcripts are fantastic.. THEY prove you are a liar! and , the balance is in your own voice, this is not simply about my book, it is about your fraud!

you do not think about my family do you?

You should pray before you publish rumors and gossip.

that was and is CNBC that taped YOU?/ Is that a RUMOR? if it were, then it is the first in human history! that is YOU there talking no??

I have never deceived Focus or anyone else for that matter regarding the airing of my testimony. I will be praying for you for the root of bitterness you have allowed to enter into your heart. Go in peace, my brother.


YOU NEVER DECIEVED FOCUS... you were PARTNERS in CRIME brother.. to the tune of hundreds of thousands of $$$ you know, if i were to settle with you, you would go on lying on and on,, like saying FOCUS and CBN were DISMISSED as if it were to our not having a case! well, that is a lie and you know it.. I ALLOWED THEM TO GO THERE WAY AND THEY PAID $$ ALSO.. so, was it a settlement or a court dismissal...??? who is the fool and liar here..??

Brian, I'm truly sorry that you feel the way you do. I can see now it is pointless to try to prove my innocence to you.


PROVE INNOCENCE?? HOW?? DID YOU NOT SAY THAT GOD EXPOSED ALL OF THEM FOR BEING WHAT THEY WERE, LIARS?? WHEN YOU WERE FOUND INNOCENT AT TRIAL 86-87>??? DID YOU NOT TESTIFY YOU WERE NEVER A MEMBER.. ONLY HAD LOOSE TIES TO THE MOB??? IF THEY WERE LIARS, THEN HOW CAN YOU SAY THEY WERE TELLING THE TRUTH TODAY??? AND IF, AT TRIAL, YOU WERE FOUND INNOCENT BECAUSE GOD SET YOU FREE BY EXPOSING THE WITNESSES FOR LIARS>> THEN HOW CAN YOUR STORY -- EITHER WAY -- BE TRUE?

OH! and, you say that you were saved in 1984.. but the trial was not until 86, now, my book was written in 86, and i was not a christian nor did i know of you , atlanta , or anything else...'and you did not START YOUR SPEAKING UNTIL WELL AFTER THE 87 VERDICT!@ so, who is the liar here, how great a con you are/// and, to think that you will be able to lie in COURT! not to me brother, i will set you free from your lies... cause God will truly bear witness!

Imagine, you once said Tony Pep (anthony trentacosta ) was SCARED OF GOTTI and that is why he moved to atlanta and became THE FIRST AND ONLY MOBSTER, GAMBINO AT THAT, TO SET UP SHOP IN ATLANTA, AND THAT WAS AFTER YOUR TRIAL! IMAGINE, I KNEW AND KNOW TONY and you know what he said about you??

did you know that GOTTI MADE TONY??? that's right, got his bones from old Tony Pep and was given permission to move to Atlanta and operate here and to take over Fat Freddys crew in miami!

wait until the trial brother.. and to think, one day from settling this with you and offering you terms that were simply great and beneficial TO YOU..

I did not ask for anything but a few dollars for my costs and was set to set you free.. but then this site [christianissues.com] and your comments.. it HAS TO BE GOD!


For your information: It was I who asked Focus to stop selling the tapes as that is my only means of income. Focus agreed to do so and now refers people to me for the tapes.


you are such a dismal being to lie like you do, are you saying here that Focus STILL RECOMMENDS YOU AND YOUR TAPES BY SENDING FOLKS TO YOU??? THAT IS A LIE!

I have attached a LETTER FROM DAWN FORDHAM ASSISTANT TO DOBSON.. in it it says THEY ARE NO LONGER RECOMMENDING OR REFERRING THEIR CONSTITUENTS TO YOU OR YOUR MINISTRY... read it!


As for David Reyna, well, he and Rocky Scarfone (not even his real name) are partners.

David IS not a PARTNER 
http://david_reyna.youthofamerica.org

what has any of this to do with theft and fraud?? david is a kid... and me?? well, i have used over thirty names, just like you Mr Papanier.. did you not change YOUR name??

Scarfones book was published in 1997 when he claims he was saved.

I claim I was saved in 1993.. when i was running with Tony Peps CREW, when i had a war with Tony in atlanta.. when I had a crew, when i had 11000 sq ft of jewelry company and a 6000 sq ft social club with strippers in the ring and atlanta officers running Black Jack tables.. when i had a tv show and millions and then.... 1993! after the 1992 war when john simmons of the fbi came and told me tony had placed a contract on my life .. so, tell the truth brother, you have read it all, yet continue to LIE!
and, the book is not at issue as much the MANUSCRIPT which YOU received in 1992...even though it was FIRST published in 1996 and then in 97
http://youthofamerica.com/Menu/News.html


I was saved in 1984 and Focus aired my testimony in Dec. of 1996. You can't copy something before it is written, Brian.


you were "saved" in 1984 and PROMPTLY HID YOUR SELF WITH FEAR until your arrest in 1986.. and the trial until 1987, and then you hid out more because they were searching for those you said tried to blow you up, the ones you allege were in your cell while in reality they were running from the law until a full YEAR after the trial (unless your testimony is talking about ghostly apparitions>?_) and you did not begin your ministry until the early 1990's.. so, what is this you cannot copy something you never had or that was not available. after all, 1986 was my writing time and YOU did not have zip.. no testimony.. heck not even a trial yet .. and that is what i want, a trial,, forgetaboudid.. no, i will not settle and feel a fool for even suggesting it.. no...



But, it seems your mind is made up about me. I forgive you, and may God bless you in all you do.


you are annointing a Holy man here? forgive what? man, you are truly a blasphemy brother.. have you ever stopped to let the lies catch up to you?/

Brian may use this letter if he likes.. as for you, I will call and cancel my offer tomorrow...
i guess we will simply file our papers and go for it...

and i thought you were ready to call it quits!

Notes from the editor of christianissues.com, Brian Karjala:

Rocky Scarfone eventually decided to put the issue of the copyright violation behind him and settle the case with Tom... a decision he now regrets.  Why?  Rocky said it himself:  "if i were to settle with you, you would go on lying on and on..."  The settlement agreement between Rocky and Tom was disputed by Tom (in January 2005) when Tom had Rocky served with legal papers claiming that Rocky had violated their agreement.  Tom wanted Rocky to return the settlement money he paid to him.  That gave Rocky the opportunity to counter-sue alleging that Tom is continuing to defraud the public (a very valid and truthful claim!).

I submitted an affidavit (mailed Nov. 16, 2005) to the Georgia court (the location of the legal battle).  One of Tom's past claims is that Rocky Scarfone is making me post the info on my web pages.  Tom is claiming that this action (which I will tell you is untrue) represents a violation of his agreement with Rocky.  This is an outright lie.  My writings are in my full control and I am not and have never been in the employment of Rocky Scarfone.  The once private agreement between Tom and Rocky is now a matter of public record (thanks to Tom's most recent court action pertaining to the agreement).

Court Link validating the agreement dispute:

Tom Papania vs. Joe Baffa (a.k.a. Rocky Scarfone)
Original source: Gwinnett Courts (Georgia)
Search the court site for Rocky Scarfone or Thomas Papania

[UPDATE:  Case dismissed.  Tom lost.  Rocky was unable to pursue his counter claim.  Details.]

Do you find it odd that Tom does not publicly tell people (on his websites) about his most recent dispute with Rocky?  He can't without losing face.  You see, if Tom tells people that Rocky violated their 2002 agreement he will then have to admit that he made a payoff to Rocky... which implies guilt on his part and validates the merits of Rocky's original lawsuit against him!

I want people to know that I will never enter into any kind of agreement with Tom Papania or accept a payoff from him.  I've learned from the problems Rocky has experienced with Tom.  I think all of us on the side of truth (now including Rocky) realize that it is not wise to make a deal with the devil or to accept terms written up by Tom's own lawyer(s).

One of the unwise decisions Rocky made was to transfer control of the tompapania.com website to Tom (as part of the settlement deal in late 2002).  That's the website where Rocky had first posted info about Tom's fraud.  Rocky had earlier won the right to keep that domain name in a 2001 Internet dispute resolution.  Also, before the private agreement Rocky had collected thousands of names from people who wanted to file a class action lawsuit against Tom.  But when Rocky and Tom made their (2002) deal together that class action suit Rocky organized was never mentioned again.  The thousands of people who put their names on Rocky's list were not given any public explanation as to what happened with that suit.  [I understand Rocky's desire to put all this mess behind him... but the public should always be informed when a matter pertains directly to them, otherwise he risks losing their trust.]

You think Rocky made me post the above paragraphs?  I didn't think so.


For info on a threat I received (in 2005) from Tom's newest attorney see the link below on my investigation of Tom Papania.

Tom Papania's attorney, D. Kent Shelton, is a fan of James Dobson.  Tom claimed in his 2004 newsletters that this attorney contacted Tom to volunteer his time to help Tom take down websites like this one.  Whether or not Shelton was recruited by Dobson or another "Evangelical" leader to threaten me into silence is not yet public knowledge.  If these people want to come after me I'll respond by putting Focus on the Family on trial!  I'll bring up everything.  If Dobson and his people want to promote a liar like Oliver North and his books (as they've done) then I'll be sure to raise unanswered questions about Iran/Contra.  I'll use the opportunity to showcase the criminality of Dobson's friends!
