Re: A Plymouth Brethren follower has been convicted rather than take a good behaviour bond for religious reasons at Armi

A letter from one of the church’s elders, who cannot be named due to a non-publication order, asked Magistrate Michael Holmes to reconsider the severity of a bond in this case. What I would like to know, is why on earth was a non-publication order granted for this "elder", and on what grounds? How ...

Re: Russell Stewart Sentenced

May I interject, Questioner - I don't think fisherman inferred the court had in Russell's case said alcohol had a specific part to play? We, 'the people' if you like, are allowed to make our own comments after the fact of sentencing, surely? Our experience and knowledge of HEB behaviour patterns is ...

Re: Bloody Hypocrites

And still the Hales EB worldwide are being asked to dig into their pockets even deeper. They were recently asked to double their giving to BDH and his fighting fund (the General Charitable Fund I think is its current title), because he is apparently "under attack in Australia". There is no definitio...

Re: Peeb Mischief

Alarm clocks pre-placed under various empty seats in a less than half-filled big local hall, set to go off at slightly different times during the second half of a long reading meeting. Not me guv, but very funny to be there... and surprisingly hard for a super annoyed 'brother' or two to zero-in on ...

Re: Daddy They're Being Disloyal To Me

Your comparison of PBCC behaviour with "genuine churches" Ian, got me thinking further. Just WHY the Brethren continue try to describe themselves as mainstream, I've no idea (well actually, I can only think they assume it will help their chances of retaining charitable status, if they can continue t...

Daddy They're Being Disloyal To Me

There have been numerous mentions in local meetings recently and some in BDH's ministry I think, Ian? ...as to "traitors" who are passing on ministry and things to the outside world, i.e. to "non-community" people, who are not supposed to be allowed to hear the utterances of the leader of this so-ca...

Re: Steve Hansen and Willie Apiata give business tips to EB

Said this month in a UK meeting: "No-one who has left the Brethren has been a success." Blissfully unaware they are, that their Halesian definition of success might not be quite that held by many other 'non-community' people (as they now refer to outsiders). To say nothing of the many exEB who have ...

Re: Opening Pandora's Box. Corking the Un-Corkable!

I completely agree with your entire post. The artificiality of teenage life in the EB was awful, I found... and from what some brief interactions with a few different EB families has shown, nothing has changed much on that score in the past three decades. Superficial change, yes, but real change not...

Re: Bloody Hypocrites

I am informed that Brethren have been filing tax returns online in the UK for at least the past three years, if that helps.
