Re: How to deal with bigots

Bigot a person who is intolerant towards those holding different opinions. Is that not the general position of the PBCC? I've found it extremely difficult to enter into dialogue with my older siblings, who cannot ( or will not) remember events in our childhood. I wish I could find some common ground...

Re: Sexual Abuse Hits the News Again

Fairfax media have just published an article in the Sunday Star Times about sexual abuse of Exclusive Brethren children, with particular emphasis on New Zealand. It is based on a questionnaire conducted by Jill Mytton among a self-selected sample of 264 ex-members of the Taylor/Symington/Hales fell...

Re: Third suspended sentence for sex offender

A previous sentencing judge said Hobson’s crimes were ‘‘immature, exploratory and experimental behaviour arising from your upbringing in the sect’’.
All very odd when homosexuality even between consenting adult males, is abhorred by the PBCC.

Re: Funnies

A £1 million reward has been offered to anyone who can find conclusive proof that the Loch Ness monster exists. This wedge of cash would be a huge boost to Brethren coffers and could just about cover the expenses incurred by the recent, expensive silencing of Big Tony, so would it be helpful to app...

Re: Millionaire pastor's church 'not really about God' ex-me

I can only take the ground of needing continual help to live in a Christian pathway; feel how much responsibility I have to take myself for not fully understanding the Gospel over the years. :lol:

Re: Why do people fight back against the Brethren?

Can you read stuff like this and not fight back? No sentence enough for sexual assault of six-year-old girl The innocence of a six-year-old girl was taken away forever when she was sexually assaulted by her older cousin. Her father bravely stood up in Wangaratta Magistrates’ Court this week to confr...

Re: LAURIE'S COURT CASE

January 2014 Laurie Moffitt, who left the Brethren in 1993, says he is "delighted that the Charity Commission has taken so much care" over the revised trust deed for the Preston Down Trust, but says he is hopeful rather than expectant that the church will now change. https://www.thirdsector.co.uk/an...

Attorney-General v BBC [1980] 3 All ER 161, HL The BBC planned a TV broadcast concerning the Exclusive Brethren, which would argue inter alia that since their meeting rooms were n...
