Vernon Quaintance sentenced

On October 3rd, 2014, Vernon Quaintance was sentenced to two years and four months in prision for targeting young boys and asking them to expose themselves under the pretense of inspecting whether or not they were circumcised. Judge Anthony Leonard QC said Quaintance used his interest in the surgical procedure to look at young boys. The judge took into consideration that this offending did not carried over into Quaintance’s later years, and his less than perfect health, to offer some allowance.

Quaintaince recently confessed to a string of offences against five young boys as young as 10 in the 1960s and 1970s. Thousands of images were found in his computer, many showing bloody and ritualistic circumcisions in the Brazilian rainforest.

The Croydon Advertiser referred to Quaintance as “circumcision fetishist”, paedophile, pervert, deviant, and stated that the Gilgal Society was just a facade for the ‘distribution of images of young boys’ for erotic and paedophilic use.

While the Gilgal Society’s website has been removed, its content remains public as the Circumcision Helpdesk, which is openly registered to Quaintaince.

Vernon Quaintance pled guilty (pro circumcision – Gilgal Society)

A former sacristan for the Knights of Malta has pleaded guilty to nine sex offences including those against boys as young as 11 he had met in the 1960s and 70s.

(…)

On Wednesday this week a court heard that Quaintance, 71, was a paedophile who also ran a pro-circumcision group. Southwark Crown Court heard he accumulated images as recently as 2011.

He was also a leader of the Gilgal Society, a group claiming to promote male circumcision and “its benefits in terms of health, sexual satisfaction and self-image.”

In 2012, he was found guilty of possessing nine hours of child pornography on video tapes. This week he pleaded guilty to five counts of indecency with a child between 1966 and 1976 and four counts of possession of indecent images. An additional count of sexual assault alleged to have taken place in 2011 on a child was left to lie on file.

* The Gilgal Society’s website has now been rebranded The Circumcision Helpdesk

Vernon Quaintaince’s trial starts – Gilgal Society website is down

Vernon Quaintance

Vernon Quaintance

The founder of the Gilgal Society, Vernon Quaintance, accused of a string of child sex offenses, is scheduled to start trial today July 14th of 2014.

The Gilgal Society’s website has suddenly gone blank. But it has been rebranded.

Vernon Quaintance also owns the International Circumcision Information Centre’s website (circinfo.com), which used to read “The International Circumcision Information Reference Centre is sponsored by The Gilgal Society”. Today it reads: “The International Circumcision Information Reference Centre is sponsored by The Circumcision Helpdesk”

Sure enough, The Circumcision Helpdesk website (registered since 2003 by Vernon Quaintance) now contains the information formerly on the Gilgal Society’s Website.

What is this guy playing? Who does he want to fool?

Response to IBT “Brian Morris (author of circumcision study) denies link to Gilgal Society”

Dear Editor,
I see your apology and remarks that Brian Morris denies involvement with the Gilgal Society. I would like to point that the Publications page of the Gilgal Society, url: http://www.gilgalsoc.org/pubs.html
Has a link to the Reference Centre, url: http://www.circinfo.com/index.html which at the bottom specifies “Sponsored by The Gilgal Society“. This page includes a document, “Circumcision, a guide to the parents“, url: http://www.circinfo.com/parents_guide/gfp.html
At the bottom of this document you can clearly see: Copyright © 2006 Brian Morris and The Gilgal Society
I also want to point that Brian Morris website has a page on testimonials, url: http://www.circinfo.net/circumcision_testimonials_from_men.html, at the bottom of this page there is a link to a Next Section: Humor, which currently produces a page not found error. This page, however, can be found in the Internet Archive, at this url:
Points to notice:
  • Photo of a nude infant with a flip phone grasping the tip of his foreskin. Why did Mr. Morris ever consider this worth of publishing on his website, we can only guess.

  • Immediately following, a poem called “Decision“ 

Decision
Some people claim that foreskins are fun
And keep the ‘muzzle’ on the gun.
But many doctors do declare:
‘It’s healthier with the glans laid bare’
So, mum & dad, we say to you,
You must decide what’s best to do,
Your son will benefit throughout his life,
As, incidentally, will his wife;
If you make the choice that’s always wise
and do decide to circumcise.
Written
by Vernon Quantance


This poem is attributed to Vernon Quantance, the founder of the Gilgal Society (currently a convicted pedophile).
In internet comments, Mr. Morris has confirmed having previous contact with Mr. Quantance and having texts published under the Gilgal Society, which fell out of his favor with Quantance’s arrest last year. And while Mr. Morris objects to the Gilgal Society’s religious name, the Gilgal Society does not pretend to be a religious entity, but according to their home page “THE GILGAL SOCIETY is a not-for-profit publisher of medical educational material for the general public.” http://www.gilgalsoc.org/
While it is sad that Mr. Morris would feel offended by your article, truth is he has association to this group and previous cooperation that he has been quick to try to erase in face of Quantance’s misfortune.
