Re: Depression Caused By Extreme Control

Greetings BR, and other readers, It’s good to reflect on some of the things we read, see, feel. It always saddens me to see ‘the church’ divided on gender grounds. A person’s gender should have absolutely nothing to do with their standing in any place at all, be it in a relationship, in an organisat...

Re: The Heresy of the Christian Fellowship and Pope Vic Halls' teachings.

Hello Faith (and others), Thank you for posting these links. They are helpful for our mutual understanding and the journey many must take. That journey being one of heading away from the XCF world. It is frequently a difficult and even tormenting time, transitioning away from what is known to what o...

How cults cover up abuse

The publishers, Crikey, have been covering a number of areas of practice in the past year involving the JW faith. When I read some of the stories, it seems to take me back to some of the autocrats at XCF.

It’s not appropriate to abuse

A timely subject discussed in this ABC article. Weak men do weak things. Fundamentalist organisations unfortunately let these abuses happen under some sort of ‘get out of jail free’ clause in their doctrine.
