Gary Perisian installed himself as the Little Hitler in 2010, nixing opposition and free speech. He even engineered a vote dictating that members would give up their right to vote! This consolidated power in his hands. And since then he has been busy about things like counting the money alone, in violation of church policy. Perisian also bought a house willed to the church at about a 50K discount. That’s a 50K gift from a non-profit organization. Perisian said the house had been listed and wasn’t selling — but it was never listed.
Recently, Perisian has continued to promote local con man and new age scammer Mas Sajady. Sajady has City Pages and Star Tribune articles about his scam, which includes: Ties to pedophilia; encouraging suicide; admiring Hitler; lying he has a college degree; buying millions of fake likes; lying during his failed 2017 lawsuit trying take away the free speech of a woman exposing him; lying during his 2009 bankruptcy and 2009 foreclosure. The bankruptcy trustee even sued Sajady and his wife for lying. Perisian and Sajady are two cons working together — both have called cops when I protested Sajady’s scam. They would both definitely want to have Hitler’s powers to suppress free speech. Be warned! Don’t trust them. Details below.
Gary Perisian Engineers Vote to Consolidate Power in his Hands
In 2010 Perisian engineered a vote asking people to give up their right to vote! Quite a fascist move. I stood up and interrupted the voting, providing vehement resistance to such a move (famously known as the chair rant). I had been connected to the church since the early 90s, when a democratic power structure had been set up whereby people voted for four rotating ministers.
When Perisian’s vote succeeded (I wouldn’t doubt there was ballot stuffing), he reigned supreme:
- He runs the board and committees,
- He counts the Sunday collection alone,
- He bought a property from the church at a massive discount,
- He nixes his opposition and installs his favorites,
- He promotes demonic, Hitler loving guru Mas Sajady,
- And for some unexplained reason, there have been many deaths at LHSC during his tyranny, in particular, deaths of board members/relatives.
Here is the truth about Perisian’s tyranny.
Gary Perisian Runs the Board and Committees
Perisian has run the board either directly or through shadow leadership for many years. Here is Gary Perisian once again the president.
Here is Gary Perisian on every committee at the church.
Gary Perisian Counts the Sunday Collection — Alone
Church policy requires that two people bring the collection to the office and count it together. However, two people have witnessed Gary Perisian doing this alone, in violation of church policy.
I am one witness. Since the corrupt management was always trying to run me off, on Christmas day 2011 I dropped in on the service. I snapped selfies with three church officials, to their chagrin. Here’s the selfie I took when I found Gary Perisian in the church office alone, where he had gone after the servicer to count the money.
The second witness said that on Sunday May 21, 2017 Perisian was again sited violating the church’s policy regarding counting the money. The witness saw Gary Perisian take the offering and go into the office with the offering alone: “I clearly saw him go into the office alone and close the door.”
LHSC’s $50,000 Gift to Gary Perisian
In 2005 Gary arranged to buy a house that had been willed to LHSC. Someone close to the situation told me that council members had told her that the house had been listed, but wasn’t selling. In fact, a half second of research show that house had never been listed. The real estate market was very hot at this time, this house would have sold quickly.
Gary paid $150K for the property, when comparable properties were running over $225K. Even if the house needed some work, the lowest it should have sold for is about $200K. That meant that Gary Perisian received a $50K gift from a non profit organization.
Gary Perisian’s Nazi-Like Leadership
Once Gary Perisian installed himself as the head of power, he unilaterally snuffed out ministerial guides who had been elected by the church members. In 2010 he fired Carol McCormick after a service. Said a witness: “It was so bizarre, laughter yoga was roaring in the background, and they were cutting off Carol McCormick’s head upstairs in the Council Room after the service.”
Gary Perisian Favorite: Theresa Rose
After Carol McCormick was axed, Gary installed his favorite, Theresa Rose. But here is Gary Perisian’s former installee publicly stating she’s no longer affiliated. What do you suppose happened there?
Gary Perisian Favorite: Secretary Nancy Coune
Nancy is also on the Speakers/Marketing committee. Why is an employee responsible for the selection of what spiritual ministry will be fed to the masses, masses? Does Nancy Coune have a degree in religious studies that she is eligible to get paid for this? Conflict of interest?
Below Nancy Coune laments Hitler’s similarities to Donald Trump. Here is Mas Sajady expressing admiration for Hitler.
If Nancy Coune is somehow eminently eligible to assist in speaker selection for Lake Harriet Spiritual Community, why is she picking Hitler lover Mas Sajady? What is Nancy Coune’s true agenda?
Gary Perisian Favorite: Leonard Jacobsen
Another Perisian favorite, Leonard Jacobsen, had convinced the board to spend $3,000 on speakers for him. Leonard wanted $3,000 from a non-profit church to support his lifestyle that included expensive apartments. He currently owns a pricey $2M penthouse condo overlooking ritzy Wayzata bay. A ruckus was raised by myself and others, Leonard’s delicate ego couldn’t handle being confronted, and he hightailed it out of the state.
Gary Perisian Promotes Hitler Admiring, Demonic Guru Mas Sajady
Leonard Jacobsen is Jewish. So is Gary Perisian. What would Leonard think about Gary Perisian promoting Mas Sajady — who is a self-professed student of Hitler? It doesn’t bother Gary that Sajady encourages suicide ? What are Gary Perisian’s true motives?
Does it even matter to —
- Gary Perisian, President
- Jan Wikman, Vice President
- Ella Davis-Suggs, Secretary
- Tanya Boigenzahn-Sowards
- Cyndi Gisborne
- Rosemary Knutson
- Ashley Ferraro
- Jody Johnson, Treasurer
Gary Perisian Can’t Find Volunteers
Is it any surprise that Gary Perisan complains that he can’t find anyone to volunteer at the church? Gary is a reptile, and he has a small bunch of reptile backers that have temporarily succeeded in hijacking the purpose of the center to use for dark purposes. Reptiles don’t know how to work well with others, they only know how to bully and intimidate.
While Gary Perisian has been in tyrannical control of LHSC, there have been many deaths, including about half of board members/relatives.
