The highest court in Wisconsin’s suspended an attorney who serves as the CEO of an anti-Catholic “cult” for just flat-out wacky behavior in the courts, including calling a judge a “Catholic knight witch hunter” and a bankruptcy judge a “dirty Jesuit.”
Naomi Dawn Isaacson has been a member of the bar since 1999 and serves as a leader of the Dr. R.C. Samanta Roy Institute (also known as SIST.)
This from court filings:
Attorney Isaacson made reference to trustees, variously, as a “dirty Catholic inquisitor,” a “Jesuitess,” and a “priest’s boy,” and referred to various judges as a “black-robed bigot,” a “Jesuit judge,” and a “Catholic Knight Witch Hunter.” She stated that court systems, “particularly the Bankruptcy Court in Minnesota, are composed of a bunch of ignoramus, bigoted Catholic beasts that carry the sword of the church.”
¶19 At an ensuing hearing on November 29, 2011, the presiding judge described Attorney Isaacson’s language as “irresponsible, unprofessional and unbelievably and unmitigatingly outrageous”.
¶20 Attorney Isaacson responded with a second declaration in which she repeated similar rhetoric and referred to the Chapter 7 trustee as the court’s “Inquisitor.” Then, on December 30, 2011, Attorney Isaacson signed a 17—page “response” in which she expressly asserted that all her statements as quoted by the court were true and accurate and not made for any improper purpose. She referred to the first bankruptcy judge to hear the case in Minnesota as “an avowed Jesuit,” “the dirty Jesuit,” a “dastardly Jesuit,” and “a Jesuit working undercover.” Attorney Isaacson’s “response” also included statements such as “out of personal malice, [the court] has issued this Order to Show Cause and warrant for my arrest,” and “[s]ince the unfortunate day that [the trustee] was appointed, she has been a Jesuitess, meaning a zealous advocate of her bigoted catholic White Supremacy beliefs.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center wrote of the group in 2012:
SIST was formerly known as The Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ — or “Brethren,” as they called themselves internally. City officials call the quirky, standoffish group a cult. It was founded in the 1970s by Rama Chandra Behera, a charismatic Indian convert to Christianity whose iron-fisted micromanagement of his followers’ lives led to repeated kidnappings by “deprogrammers” in the 1970s and 1980s.
In the last decade, the Brethren have again drawn unwanted attention, as young adults who were raised among them claimed to have suffered abuse at the hands of the leader their parents so admired. Some former members, including one who spoke to the Intelligence Report, have alleged that Behera punished them for perceived infractions by applying an electric cattle prod to sensitive parts of their bodies.
Behera has not lived with his Wisconsin followers for many years, and repeated attempts to reach him through SIST were unsuccessful. Today, he is known as Avraham Cohen and lives in Maryland, far from the turmoil surrounding the group’s affairs here. As his followers fume about what they believe is a Vatican plot to undermine SIST’s business interests and destroy the group, the group’s CEO, Naomi Isaacson, 38, faces a federal arrest warrant for contempt of court.
Hey, who knew that anti-Catholicism was even frowned on anymore.
But you’ve got to admit that’s some grade A crazy right there. There’s crazy and then there’s cult crazy.
