Daniel Paul

Lua was married to Daniel Paul Ahrendt. He was 5 years older than her. To my knowledge they started dating when she was 15 or 16 y.o., meaning that she was a minor and he was an adult. I lived in another country and Lua’s mother never discussed Daniel Paul with me. I met him on one visit to Lua in Indianapolis, and I immediately saw something was very wrong. Of course, it made no difference what I thought, both in the eyes of Lua, and in her mother’s eyes. As told to me, Lua was practically adopted by Daniel’s family, strong members of the John Birch Society. The John Birch Society is a radical right and far-right organisation. In the time of Trump, they must all be the supporters of the immorality that is growing in American society. I also was told that Daniel never spent time at the home of Lua, and Carolyn didn’t really know him. When I saw him, his attitude was that of a smart aleck that thinks people can’t see exactly what game he is playing. So, the marriage took place, and even the marriage separated the Ahrendts from the Reusches. I would bet money that the Ahrendts did not like the Reusches and anything that has to do with the Bahá’í Faith. Before the marriage, I tried to talk to Lua but whatever I said was interpreted negatively. Nabil and I decided to play a trick on Lua and Daniel after the wedding, a joke. We looked for them and found they had lied to us about what they were going to do, and found them having a kind of wedding celebration at Daniel’s home– separate and distinct. I could go on but enough. The upshot is that Daniel was abusive, including physically abusive, and Lua eventually left him. I am sure that Lua was re-molded by Daniel, an adult with a young girl. He worked to discourage her from any further education, convinced her that the best for her is to work in a store, and I’m sure to forget everything her parents believed in and worked for.
