FaithLeaks

This is the name of a new website that is being founded with the intention of exposing to public scrutiny the abuses of harmful religious groups. Their reason for doing this, according to its founders, is “that increased transparency within the religious organizations results in fewer untruths, less corruption, and less abuse.” Well, that would be a good thing for current members of the Exclusive Brethren, who don’t benefit one whit from untruths, corruption and abuse, but it would be an embarrassment for their leaders.

It is being run by the The Truth and Transparency Foundation, (see https://truthandtransparency.org/) a non-profit organisation that up till now has largely confined its interests to the Mormons, using a website called MormonLeaks.

From the point of view of current EB whistle-blowers, Faithleaks has two advantages over WikiPeebia.

First, it has set up facilities by which a whistle-blower can guarantee his complete anonymity. He can supply the website with incriminating or sensitive or informative information in such a way that its source can never be discovered, not even by the Website owners, not even if the Brethren hire several firms of expensive lawyers and private investigators. For details of these facilities, see
https://faithleaks.org/

Of course, it is also possible to send material with your full name and address attached, which might add to its authenticity.

Secondly, it is likely that FaithLeaks will reach a larger audience than WikiPeebia does, or any of the personal blogs that expose the evils of Brethrenism. The whole world population of cult-watchers and students of high-demand groups will soon know about it, and it will help to keep influential bodies informed, such as legislators, education departments, social work departments, police forces, courts, health-care workers, psychological counsellors, pastors, news media and academics.

Might be a good idea to start with the recent Hales bribery scandal and work back from there. It speaks volumes that the PBCC have not issued a press statement about it in their normal manner.

Contact made...if we can pursuade public interest groups like this to investigate the PBCC the 'radar' they brag they 'fly under' might get lowered a bit..the press is our best ally ,nothing cults hate more than to be in the spotlight....the Lord called them 'Wolves in sheeps clothing' ( Matthew 7:15)

Typical response will be 'everybody is against us' and 'all those who are faithful will be pursecuted'..yah,right..all cults say that..
