Selmer Hanson's Fatherhood "Tricks of the Trade"??

Selmer Hanson is a self-confessed pedophile who abused many missionary kids in the Philippines.  He also was a long-time faculty member and vice president of Prairie Bible Institute (PBI) in Three Hills, Alberta, Canada.  I knew Selmer growing up as a kid at PBI.  Later he was my teacher when I went to bible school at PBI.  Little did I know that in the years to come I would embark on a mission to expose this monster who masquerades as a pastor, getting him fired from one church only to see him pop up at another one.  Little did I know that his victims would one day find me and that I would have the privilege of getting to know them.  I am amazed at what they have become in spite of the atrocities that Selmer perpetrated on them. Little did I know back in 1977 when I shook hands with Selmer Hanson who was head of the Christian Education department at PBI that I was shaking hands with the most prolific pedophile I would ever personally know and one of the most evil.  People don't know the evil that lurks in the heart of Selmer; I do.   As long as I have breath and Selmer is not sitting in a jail cell, I will continue to sound the alarm.  I don't care who tries to intimidate me!  

I am always amazed at the bizarre things that Selmer posts online.  He has such a hard time trying to conceal his pedophilia and it shows up in the most unusual ways. For example, look at what he posted on his Google+ profile

For his tagline Selmer uses the phrase "tricks of the trade".  Seriously?  Like who does this to describe fatherhood?   Those who are in mechanical, technical and manual labor fields use the phrase “tricks of the trade”.  Plumbers, carpenters and road construction workers have "tricks of the trade" that they have learned by trial and error that has made their jobs easier.  But I have never ever heard a father use the phrase "tricks of the trade" in regards to raising their children.  Ironically, it is often used when describing the grooming techniques of pedophiles.  For example, in his recent interview with CBS, in talking about the pedophile Jared Fogle of Subway fame, Dr. Phil is quoted as saying: "He (Jared Fogle) talks about how to groom a family, he talks about how to groom the victim, he talks about all the things he does, the tricks of his trade...He just basically gives you the playbook of an evil monster." Perhaps it was a Freudian slip on Selmer's part to use this phrase "tricks of the trade"?

Selmer let me set some things straight for you.  First of all you have not survived being a father to your children - they have survived having you for a father!  Secondly, there are no "tricks of the trade" in regards to fatherhood.  Good fathers don't trick and manipulate children into doing what you want them to do.  That is what pedophiles do!  Good fathers don’t force, bribe, trick, manipulate, or in any other way connive their children to do what they want them to do; they lead them by example and the children follow out of respect.  I know this is where it would be very difficult for you because you are such a fake and fraud.  Who would want to follow a man like you?  Good fathers raise children to think for themselves, face challenges and gain independence.  There is no trickery and manipulation involved - no "tricks of the trade".    

It really disgusts me Selmer that you even have the gall to write about raising children.  You were a houseparent in the Philippines for missionary kids and this in essence made you a surrogate father to these vulnerable children who were separated from their parents for months at a time.  Not only did you fail at being a good father figure to them, you chose to prey on them and heinously abuse them physically, sexually and emotionally.  You are the worst example of a father figure there possibly could ever be!  You are the monster that nightmares are made of and the sad thing is that you are still downplaying and discounting the severity of the abuse you perpetrated on these children.  You have done irreparable damage to these children who are still dealing with the aftermath of the heinous things that you did to them.  And you have the audacity to throw it in their face by promoting yourself all over the internet like you are some kind of guru that people should listen to for “godly wisdom” on how to raise children.  That is so messed up!

Let’s save people some money so they don't have to hire you to find out the “tricks of the trade” you used with raising these missionary kids and your own kids in the Philippines.  Let’s hear it in the words of the missionary kids themselves…

He (Selmer) made me watch him beating his own little children with a belt on their naked bodies for wetting their nappies...He looked like he had lost his mind.”  

Oh now that is a good trick of the trade Selmer.  Bet you got your little babies to quit wetting their diapers real quick by whipping them with your leather belt.  When you arrived in the Philippines, you had a one-year-old child and a year later another child was born.  So we are talking little babies and Selmer you are whipping them with a leather belt.  Seriously?  That is not a "trick of the trade"; that is child abuse!

“In the dining room he (Selmer) had their children sitting in high chairs beside him. He would snip on their bare legs with his comb or pinch them badly when they did not eat..."

Now remember folks we are talking about an infant and a toddler.   And Selmer is snapping a comb on their bare legs and pinching them for not eating.  And doing this to his own children!  Do I need to remind you that children can be fickle eaters and remember these are a North American children having to adjust to eating tropical foods in a tropical climate at high altitudes.  Lots of luck with that!  So Selmer is snapping a comb another one of your "tricks of the trade"?  And if that didn't work then you would pinch the soft baby skin of his own children?  That is not a "trick of the trade"; that is child abuse!

“When we had done something wrong, Selmer Hanson took out the wooden carved spoon, which was about one meter long. We had to take off or push down our clothes and had to kneel with bare bums and bend over the bed. He hit us until we had blood-filled blisters big as a hand on each of our buttocks. We were unable to sit for days. We had to take cushions to school.”

Selmer this one just makes me sick to my stomach.  These missionary kids tell me that they can still hear the screams of their fellow missionary kids as you beat them with that wooden spoon, sometimes breaking it over them.  Calling it a wooden spoon doesn't do it justice.  It was a weapon that you had no business using to beat these children with.  Selmer you hit those children unmercifully with it until they had blood blisters the size of a hand and couldn't sit down for days afterwards.  How could you do this to a child?  How could you Selmer?   

"Tricks of the trade", hell no!  Just flat out child abuse!

Selmer Hanson Tells the Way to Maintain an Honest Outlook

*Editor's note: all graphics in this document were published by Selmer Hanson at the following site:

Self-confessed serial pedophile Selmer Hanson is at it again.  It is amazing that he doesn't have the common sense to realize that using social media to promote himself just shines a brighter light on him.  By all accounts it appears that he is loving the limelight.  Bigger light on the pedophile means more people know he is a pedophile.  Works for me!  

When Selmer decided to pontificate about honesty it was definitely time for me to listen.  I have yet to find anything honest about this deceitful and conniving man.  I couldn't wait to hear what this pedophile who masqueraded as a pastor to unknowing congregations for years had to say about "an honest outlook".

Once again I find myself having to be the editor for Selmer because he just can't seem to get his grammar straight.  I can't tell if he is really that dumb or if he is trying to prove his intellect by using as many superfluous words in a sentence as possible.  At any rate, all that comes across is a convoluted, discombobulated mess of nouns, verbs and adjectives that leave the reader scratching their head.  I suppose if you aren't an honest person and you are trying to write about honesty that this would be the way to go.  Like they say: "If you can't impress people with your intelligence then confuse them with your bullshit".

Slide #1 starts Selmer's presentation on himself.  I have no idea why the "t" in "tell" and the "o" in "outlook" are capitalized.  Newsflash to Selmer - either capitalize every word in the phrase "tells the way to maintain an honest outlook" or don't capitalize any of them.  Yep, this man taught for many years at Prairie Bible Institute and was their Vice get the education you pay for, but I digress.

Okay, that was clear as mud!  Not only does this not say anything about an honest outlook but it makes no sense.  Don't bother trying to read it again, it will just give you a headache trying to figure out what Selmer is trying to say, not to mention the words he has created along the way.  "Geng" is a Chinese soup, not sure what that has to do with what Selmer is trying to say.

Hmm...I wonder if Selmer is drunk.  Who on earth could write like this and publish it with his name attached to it?  Basic Writing 101, use the damn spell-checker!  I haven't learned anything about maintaining an honest outlook yet but I am confused - between the "notorious block divider" and talking to a towel, you lost me Selmer.

Oh boy Selmer!  Seriously, the spell-checker comes free with your software, you don't have to pay extra for it.  What in the world is "an aereect of life"?  Still nothing about maintaining an honest outlook but "religion in God" was telling.  I have never disputed that you were a religious man Selmer - a very religious, hypocritical man.  On to the next one...

Oh the presentation is over and I have not learned anything about "maintaining an honest outlook".  Could it be that Selmer can't tell you because he doesn't maintain an honest outlook himself?  But hey if you are interested in a melancholy guide (thanks but most people can get depressed on their own) then Selmer is your guy.  I personally will pass on a guy who is "frighully esteemed inside of the exchange".  The exchange?  Whoa, sounds like some sort of secret society.  Uh-oh gotta run...a guy just called - said he was calling from the exchange.  He said I am in big trouble.  Like my buddy Jack Burton would say at a time like this: "Okay.  You people sit tight, hold the fort and keep the home fires burning.  And if we're not back by the president."

Woman Abused by Baptist General Conference of Canada Pastor Shares Her Experience

I have made no secret my disdain for the Baptist General Conference of Canada (BGC) for the way they allowed Selmer Hanson, a self-confessed pedophile to pastor their churches.  Most of these churches and organization had no clue that Selmer had abused many missionary kids in the Philippines.  When he was exposed, Selmer would conveniently "resign" only to show up later at another church or organization affiliated with the Baptist General Conference of Canada.  I have long suspected that what the BGC did with Selmer was not an isolated incident.

Out of the blue, I received a comment on this blog from a reader who shared her experience after being sexually abused by a Baptist General Conference of Canada pastor.

My hope is that she will have the courage to report this abuse to the RCMP so that this perp pastor can be brought to justice and given no place to hide.

I will keep you posted if I hear anything from the Baptist General Conference of Canada...

The PBI Elephant in the Room

Recently I sent out Facebook messages to 200 Prairie Bible Institute alumni alerting them to contact the RCMP if they knew of any Canadian victims of Selmer Hanson, long-time Vice President of the school and a prolific pedophile.  

I didn't expect a warm welcome.  After fighting with the school's administration, I had definitely made my enemies.  I walked away from the whole PBI mess and figuratively spit on the school in disgust on my way out the door.  There was certainly no love lost between PBI and me.  But I couldn't help but remember how many times the alumni told me that once I left then the school would be so willing to work with the rest of the survivors.  I was supposedly "the problem" and once "the problem" was removed then things would be so different, "just you wait and see".

Uh-huh, I see that nothing has changed.  The alumni are still hiding their heads in the sand and the PBI elephant still sits in the middle of the room and his name isn't Dumbo and he doesn't work for the circus.  His name is Selmer Hanson and PBI and its alumni still refuse to acknowledge him.  And for good reason.  If PBI were to acknowledge Selmer Hanson, they would have to acknowledge that they employed a most prolific pedophile and that he was able to infiltrate the highest levels of administration in their school.  If PBI were to acknowledge Selmer Hanson, they would have to acknowledge that this pedophile represented the best of the best that the school has to offer.  Selmer Hanson was, after all, their fair-haired boy; a graduate of their school, faculty and consummate administrator.  If PBI were to acknowledge Selmer Hanson, they would have to admit that they fought to keep this pedophile in spite of the MKs who came forward accusing Selmer of heinous abuse.  If PBI were to acknowledge Selmer Hanson, they would have to admit that the administration covered up for a known pedophile for three years and recklessly didn't inform their own staff thus allowing staff children to run in and out of the Hanson home.  If PBI were to acknowledge Selmer Hanson, they would have to acknowledge that all those L.E. Maxwell and Rendall sermons about "sin in the camp" ran off their VP's seared conscience like water off a duck's back.  How many times did we have to sit and listen to the pleadings from the pulpit for us students to repent of our sins when a fake and a fraud like Selmer Hanson sat there unmoved?  The sin wasn't in the student's camp; it was in the administration's own camp!

The PBI alumni needn't worry that I am coming back - you couldn't pay me to jump into that toxic mess again.  I needed to find Canadian victims and the best place to find them would be the place where Selmer spent the most time and that brought me right back to PBI.  Love me or hate me, we all have an obligation to do what is right to protect children.   I can only hope that somewhere in the whole sea of apathy that perhaps there is one person who knows something and will do the right thing.  I can only hope that not all PBI alumni have stuck their heads in the sand.

I am not being dramatic when I say a "sea of apathy".  It was interesting to see the response or lack of response that I got.  A full 87% had no response to my message.  A simple, "I got your message" would have sufficed.  Think about it, 87% had no response whatsoever to a message asking them to contact law enforcement about any Canadian victims they might know.  This in light of the fact that it is common knowledge that Selmer abused MKs in the Philippines and they know or should know that pedophiles continue to abuse throughout their lives.  Perhaps most disturbing is that the alumni were faced with the fact that PBI had its own abuse scandal (which they conveniently swept under the rug).  So tell me again how much PBI has changed since I left, uh-huh...

I think it is time to call out some people.

Enid Sanford, long-time PBI Registrar said: "Oh, Linda! Give it up, please. And don't send me any more of your alerts." When I responded with: "No Enid, I will not 'give it up'. There are children at risk and I will not be silent. Shame on you!" she immediately blocked me.  Yep, I see the ostrich feathers straight up in the air with this woman!

Brett Dafoe, PBI graduate and now youth pastor for the Evangelical Free Church decided to be a smart-ass and removed me from my own group message and then blocked me so that I couldn't respond.  Makes you wonder what he will do when the next person alerts him about a pedophile.  If I had kids, they wouldn't be allowed to go anywhere near a church with a youth pastor like him!

Val Moline Hobbs, former PBI high school girls dean did the same smart-ass thing that Brett Dafoe did.  Interesting that she would make a mockery of my message when she was acutely aware of sexual abuse at PBI.  One of the girls in her dorm was sexually assaulted.  How she could blatently discount my message about Selmer in light of this is just mind-boggling.

Deborah Sharp Wenman, former PBI staff kid and self-righteous biddy extraordinare said: "go away" and then promptly blocked me.  Nice to know she is still the same mean ornery cuss I remember her to be!

Mark Maxwell, President of PBI had no response.  When I added a further comment: "
Oh ya, forgot that you wouldn't give a damn because this abuse happened in the privacy of another country so it doesn't affect PBI", he promptly blocked me.  Seems nothing has changed with Mark Maxwell.  Remember when Mark distanced himself from the abuse that occurred on PBI campus by telling reporters it happened in the "privacy of the home"?  Never mind that the homes were owned by PBI and that their employees lived in them.  Remember when Mark told reporters that a sexual assault that occurred on campus and was perpetrated by a PBI employee "did not affect PBI" because the victim attended Prairie Christian Academy and they were a "separate entity"?  Now, it would appear that Mark feels the same way about these MKs who were abused "in the privacy of another country".  He feels it doesn't affect PBI.  Oh but it does!  Selmer and Sharon were on the faculty of PBI immediately before going to the Philippines.  They came to the mission with glowing recommendations, likely from the PBI administration.  Once Selmer spent four years sexually abusing these MKs, he and Sharon returned to PBI where Selmer again was on the faculty of the school.  Selmer is a product of PBI and he represented the school.  PBI needs to own that!

Ed Wallen, former faculty of PBI has made it his mission to be Selmer's cheerleader.  Wallen has been gushing his praises for Selmer on nearly everything that has been posted on-line.  Seems Wallen thinks there is no cause for alarm that a self-confessed pedophile is on a social media blitz and is reinventing himself as a life-coach/grief counselor who blogs about raising kids.  I call this "trolling for new victims" but apparently Wallen doesn't see anything nefarious about this at all.  Please Ed, educate yourself on the subject of pedophilia and quit enabling a predator.  Every time you praise Selmer, you are slapping his victims in the face.

Without any warning the following people blocked me:

A former pastor at the PBI Tabernacle

The top guy at Prairie Radio (what did I ever do to him?)

Two of the Maxwells (surprise, surprise)

Eight former PBI staff kids

And a several no accounts...

I have no shame in appealing to anyone if it results to protecting children from a sexual predator.  Selmer is a predator.  He did not quit abusing children after he left the Philippines.  This not an allegation; it is a fact.

Read the stories of the MKs Selmer abused in the Philippines then ask yourself if you still want to protect this predator.

I am pleading with the small remnant of PBI alumni who have compassion for children and will do the right thing to protect them.  You know something about Selmer abusing children and you have not come forward.  You need to do that now.  Your information, no matter how small or insignificant that you think it might be could be so important to protecting a child from being abused.  I am not asking you to contact me - you need to contact the Edmonton RCMP.  Here is their number 780-412-5424.

Let's quit ignoring the elephant in the room...

Selmer Hanson Preens Like a Peacock And Get's His Crow Feathers Handed to Him

Selmer Hanson, prolific pedophile and former vice president of Prairie Bible Institute decided to preen like a peacock on social media in an attempt to rehabilitate his reputation.  Yes, the man really is that stupid!  Did he really think people would overlook the fact that he is a self-confessed pedophile?  

I have been fighting to keep Selmer out of positions of leadership and trust with access to children for a few years and knew a thing or two about fighting.  But for a fight to be a good one it has to be fair.  I figured that the guy just didn't realize the power that social media had to expose him.  It was one thing for me to wage my one-woman crusade against him but did he really want to deal with the full power of social media?   I personally warned Selmer about this when I emailed him: "Your social media blitz will certainly backfire on you.  Instead of rehabilitating your on-line reputation, you are merely advertising to more people about your pedophilia."

I didn't figure Selmer would listen to me but at least he was warned.  There would be no way in the world that this would turn out to be a good thing.  But the train had already left the station and well, you know what was bound to happen.

Any pedophile who thinks they can use social media to garner support is a fool.  Recently Selmer reinvented himself as a life coach/grief counselor and then went on a fast and furious social media blitz to tell the world what a highly respected man he is.  The man was preening like a peacock!  

Predictably this backfired on Selmer who has now gotten far more notoriety than he would have otherwise.  His social media blitz drew thousands of people to the blog we set up to expose him (  People who didn't know him are now outraged that he is flaunting his ability to escape prosecution because he committed these crimes in a foreign country.

When Selmer first started his social media blitz his writings were just atrocious.  It would appear that his wife Sharon has now taken over the editing of his posts.  There is much more editing to be done, and broken links to fix.  Check out this statement that Selmer wrote and see if it makes any sense to you.  "Selmer Hanson could be a leadership coach and life counselor UN agency has increased abundant expertise in serving to others. He says that life itself could be a smart professional, which your highschool and school experiences square measure solely the start. He says that this might not be beyond the reality, which each expertise you undergo in life helps to cultivate you each in person and professionally."  Huh?  Makes you just want to just run out and hire him to be your life coach doesn't it?  This is just one of many atrocious examples of the man's inability to write.  If the man can't put two sentences together, how in the world is he going to help you with something as daunting as figuring out what to do with your life?  

I've never have been a fan of life coaches; most of them are full of trite clich├ęs, fluff and flowery words that don't mean jack and they charge you an arm and leg to tell you how to do something they don't even do in their own lives.  No, I prefer real tried and true information that passes the-rubber-meets-the-road test.  That you can generally get for free by reading books from the library or talking to wise souls.  Don't expect to find any of it from this guy.

Seems Selmer has found that social media is not willing to embrace a pedophile who masquerades as a life coach/grief counselor.  He seems frustrated that the social media blitz he envisioned has gone belly-up.  Apparently his frustration got the best of him one day when he wrote: 

"Malicious opinions are flaunted by arrogant self-righteous voices that have taken advantage of social media to spread their lies and hatred."  Surely he must be joking! Surely he was not calling out those of us who have stood up for the truth was he?  It was time to directly respond to this!  

Selmer, if you are going to directly call out those who stand up to your lies on social media, then be prepared for a response and a loud one! 

"Malicious opinions", no Selmer these are not malicious opinions.  You sexually abused over a dozen little girls in the Philippines.  You repeatedly confessed both in writing and verbally to sexually abusing them.  This is no longer an opinion; it is a fact.  What you did to these children was malicious; you stole their innocence.  You are the monster who preyed on them and destroyed their lives.  And you dare to call anyone else "malicious"?  Seriously?

"Flaunted", now it is interesting that you would use this word because it is exactly what a peacock does when it struts around showing off its feathers.  Look at the things you have been saying about yourself: "Selmer Hanson is recognized as one of the best counselors around", "Selmer Hanson is highly respected by his clients and peers",  blah, blah, blah.  This self-serving comment you made is choice: "Selmer Hanson has been a melancholy guide for a long time right now, gathering a level of ability that is frightfully esteemed inside of the exchange."  Forgetting the atrocious writing, Selmer I have never heard anyone say that they were "frightfully esteemed".  Who are these people who "frightfully esteem" you?  You have been talking non-stop about how well respected you are with your clients and your peers.  Ever heard of the phrase "let no man praise himself"?  If your clients and peers are so enamored with your work, then let them post it on your sites with their names attached.  Surely, they are not ashamed of being enamored with a pedophile are they?  No, there is only one person flaunting their peacock feathers and that is you!

"Arrogant", you say?  Arrogance is your middle name.  In fact I think your middle initial "B" stands for "blow-hard".  You never miss the opportunity to praise your own abilities and accomplishments.  You reek of arrogance and pride.  

"Self-righteous", you did have to use that word didn't you?  I tell you what self-righteous is - it is when you elevate yourself to pastor of churches and you don't tell the people in your congregations about being a pedophile so they all assume they can trust you.  It is keeping them in the dark so they allow you to take their families camping.  Need I remind you that you sexually abused missionary kids in the Philippines when you took them camping?  And to add insult to injury, you took Filipino kids camping in Canada!  Do you think this went unnoticed by the MKs you abused?  Self-righteous is when you don't tell your employers about being a pedophile and then get mad at the whistleblower who exposes you.  Self-righteous is when you go on a social media blitz to rehabilitate your reputation and then trash talk those who take a stand against you.   Self-righteous is when you lie on a stack of bibles that you stopped abusing kids when you left the Philippines when you really didn't.

"Voices" so glad you included that word Selmer.  Yes, your victims have found their voices and they are telling their stories.  The tables have turned and they aren't afraid of you anymore.  You ought to fear what they have yet to expose.

"That have taken advantage of social media".  Yep, what a beautiful tool social media has been for those of us who hunt down pedophiles.  It makes it impossible for you pedophiles to hide like you used to.  And that is a good thing, a very good thing.

"To spread their lies" Again, Selmer these are not lies.  You have already confessed to abusing these children.  If you want we can get into specifics - we can.   You came to a six-year-old little girl and told her "Auntie Sharon won't take care of me tonight, will you"?  And you took her little hands and taught her how to fondle you.  Should I get more specific?  You told a little girl who ran and hid from you to try to save herself from being abused that you are "like God and know her hiding places".  Do you have any idea what you did to that precious child's concept of God?  You are nothing like God Selmer!  Want more?  There is a lot more I could expose Selmer.  Times when you fondled little girls under the table in the dining room while you talked to visiting missionaries across the table about "things of God".   You groomed these little girls to use for your own despicable and perverted sexual satisfaction.  You came home to Canada and administered a Bible college and hid your filthy secret.  You lied to all your students Selmer.  I was one of your students and you lied to me Selmer.  Sadly,  you are still lying.

"...and hatred"  You got me on that one.  I feel such disdain for you knowing the horrid things you did to these children.  I hate how you have damaged them and caused such horrific pain in their lives.  I hate how you twisted good and made it evil.  I hate how you told them you represented God and then acted like the devil instead.  I hate that you hid behind the pulpit and claimed to speak for God when you are nothing but a fraud and a fake.  I hate how your apologies were nothing more than minimizing and blaming your victims.  I hate how you just will not take ownership.  I hate how you just will not stop all this self-promotion at the expense of these survivors.  

Selmer, you can preen like a peacock all you want but be prepared to have your crow feathers handed back to you when you call out those who stand up to your lies.  You are a pedophile and no amount of self-promotion is ever going to change that.  No amount of deleting on your part is ever going to wipe away all of the references to you being a pedophile.  It is forever out there in cyberspace.  And thanks to your social media blitz, now thousands of people who never knew you before now know what a prolific pedophile you are.  Congratulations Selmer!  Your social media blitz was most successful - we couldn't have gotten the word out without you.

Selmer Hanson - You Can Run But You Can't Hide!

Selmer Hanson, former vice president of Prairie Bible Institute is a self-confessed pedophile. This is no longer an allegation; it is a fact that he has repeatedly confessed to in writing and verbally, albeit only after being confronted first.  Selmer did not stop abusing children when he returned to Canada.  This is no longer an allegation; it is a fact.  So before we get too far along, let’s make sure we understand that we are talking about a pedophile who abused several MKs in the Philippines and then continued to swear on a stack of Bibles that he stopped, only he really didn’t.  This is the Selmer Hanson we are talking about here, not the “godly saint” he tries to portray himself to be.

The survivors of Selmer's abuse are speaking out and telling their stories.  If there is any doubt in your mind about the fact that Selmer is a predator of children, these stories should completely remove it.  I will never forget the cold chills that ran down my spine the first time I heard one of these survivors share this part of her story: “Selmer was alone with us children. I knew what was going to happen and hid myself in the laundry box. But he found me. And he told me, that it doesn’t matter, where I would hide, he is like God, he knows everything and knows all my hidden thoughts and hiding places...”  To read more, please see this website: 

Selmer is nothing like God; it is blasphemous to say this!  Finally the places that he chose to hide are no longer going to be able to cover for him anymore.  Gone are the days when Prairie Bible Institute could keep this under wraps.  Gone are the days when the Baptist General Conference of Canada can shuffle him from church to church.  Gone are the days when he can be Chairman of the Board of non-profits, pastor Filipino congregants and take children camping. 

PBI, churches and mission boards won’t do the dirty work to stop him, so we will!

These survivors have found their voices and there isn’t a place in the world Selmer can hide from them!  No matter where he goes, their words will hunt him down and expose his crimes to the light of day.  He preyed on these children and brought unspeakable terror to their hearts.  Now the tables have turned and he is the one who feels the terror.

As Selmer proceeds to go on a social media blitz, trying to rehabilitate his on-line reputation, he is only furthering to advertise of his pedophilia. Whereas before people asked, "what's a Selmer?", people are now saying "oh, you mean that guy". 

Seems after we have gotten him fired from his jobs, Selmer has now re-invented himself as a Life Coach and Grief Counselor.  And one of the first things he blogged about was teaching parents to raise responsible kids.  Now I don't know about you, but that kind of thing just raises the hairs on the back of my neck.  Is this just another attempt at getting the attention of needy parents who have will do anything to get someone to help them with their kids?  This is what pedophiles do - they troll for victims.

Selmer, we are watching your every move - you can run but you can't hide.

Attention All Prairie Bible Institute Alumni

Many of you know Selmer Hanson who was on faculty and vice-president at PBI for many years. What you may not know is that Selmer severely physically and sexually abused several children between the ages of 6-12 when he and Sharon were houseparents at a school for missionary kids in the Philippines from 1970-1974.  Immediately following this horrendous abuse, Selmer and Sharon returned to Canada where he was employed on staff at PBI.  The next 15 years, he covered up this heinous abuse of these MKs and put on the act of being a respectable member of PBI staff.  When these MKs grew up and confronted their mission about the abuse, Selmer was confronted at PBI.  He confessed to the abuse of the known victims who had come forward but repeatedly lied as more victims came forward.  During all of this, PBI kept him on staff for the next approximately three years without notifying any of the parents on staff that Selmer is a pedophile.  Children were able to run in and out of the Hanson home without other staff having any idea that their children were in the presence of a pedophile.  It was not until the parents of one MK contacted the RCMP and threatened to bring in the media that Selmer was finally forced to resign.

Since that time, Selmer has repeatedly put himself in positions of leadership and trust with access to children.  He has pastored churches, been involved with a non-profit that works with new immigrant families, and even taken families with children camping.  I have contacted many of his employers only to find out that they had no clue about his past abuse of these children or they didn't care.

I don't for one minute believe that Selmer stopped abusing children the minute he set foot on Canadian soil.  It is critical that we reach as many victims as we possibly can and bring this man to justice.  I am asking that if you or someone you know was abused by Selmer in any way - no matter the level of severity of the abuse, please contact the Edmonton RCMP at 780-412-5424.

Before you quit reading and decide to do nothing, please listen to what one of the MKs said in her story..."Selmer was alone with us children. I knew what was going to happen and hid myself in the laundry box. But he found me. And he told me, that it doesn´t matter, where I would hide, he is like God, he knows everything and knows all my hidden thoughts and hiding places..."
