It was brought to my attention that someone in this group who calls herself "Susan I/S", said of my ex-husband, Mike Norton (aka NewNameNoah), "He is a truly nasty and vile person...Those that KNOW him and have known him for YEARS, know just what he is. Just ask any of his ex-wives or their families."
Susan I/S called my ex "a nasty, lying, attention seeking troll who does not care AT ALL about anyone else. He has no interest in helping anyone, all he cares about is attention for HIMSELF. And that is the truth folks." That's some pretty strong language for a woman who's never met the guy.
I was with Mike Norton for 7 years. Since Susan I/S suggested ya'll "just ask any of his ex-wives" I thought I'd save you the trouble trying to find me and come to you with the truth.
I was married to Mike Norton when he first recorded the temple ceremonies. He spent hours every single day talking with people online and on the phone, selflessly helping complete strangers see the truth about Mormonism. He would often send temple recommends to people using UPS next day air letters so they could attend temple weddings of their own children. Most of the time he didn't ask for compensation for the shipping cost and told me, "If they can't afford to pay tithing maybe they can't afford to pay next day air shipping."
I know for a fact that he was paying the mother of his three children $2,000 per month in spousal support months before he was required to do so by the court. Keep in mind HE had full custody of the kids. This was just spousal support. He treated my two children like they were his own. He once tried to donate a kidney to a complete stranger and cried when he found out that he wasn't compatible. He would say, "God gave us two kidneys for a reason. One to use and one to share."
Mike Norton would literally give his last dollar to someone else who needed it more. He's not a Saint and he doesn't pretend to be one. He has plenty of flaws but I won't share them because ya'll seem to have fun making up your own flaws about him. I guess I should say since I'm told the accusation was tossed out here that Mike has never given alcohol to minors, let alone shared shots of vodka with them.
Ya'll can try and paint him out to be some sort of "nasty and vile person" but he's spent thousands of dollars and god only knows how many hours selflessly helping others see the truth about Mormonism. This Susan I/S gal said, "Just ask any of his ex-wives or their families," so here ya go. He's a good man trying to leave this world a better place than it was when he came into it.
By the way, all three of his divorces were amicable and two of the three divorces (including ours) didn't involve lawyers at all. We just weren't compatible and filed a small court fee and filed the paperwork ourselves. The administrators here are welcome to contact me privately for confirmation that I am indeed his ex-wife. I would encourage anyone here to seek out the other two ex-wives and suspect they would say the same thing. "Susan I/S" knows nothing about Mike Norton, let alone the thoughts of his ex-wives and our families.
