This is a place for those interested in the Hales exclusive brethren cult who actively destroy families, castrate Gays, avoid paying taxes, cause suicide and murder and are told by leader Bruce D Hales to develop an utter hatred of the world!
Maybe they're trying to fool everyone into thinking they're a warped religious cult, when they're really a warped self improvement/business cult?
Maybe they should apply some of these thoughts to the way the cult handles things!
Empathy is something they seriously lack - if they had empathy then they would not deny children access to their parents or parents access to their children. They would not stop us seeing our families because IF they had empathy then they would know how that feels.

Edition 161 "Treat One Another with Dignity and Respect"Why do they publish this stuff and not practice it in their meetings or with any EB member who disagrees with them?I have heard that they have mocked and laughed at folk in their meetings, and know they have treated dissenters - myself included - abominably.
"be transparent" "have empathy" "develop your potential" - just a few of the things that jumped out and grabbed me by the throat. All words the Hales Exclusive Brethren don't even come close to living by. Where's the one about "honesty" so that I can gag over that one as well.
That's usually trumpeted on identikit company websites. I think the Hales Group PLC consider that to be their trump card - that they are the only really honest folk in business- they will actually deliver if you pay; how unique! Hope this honesty extends to a full and frank statement of all company profits eligible for tax, with none being squirrelled into various "Trusts".
"Be transparent" would I suppose include changing the the name of your church (and website) from Exclusive Brethren to Plymouth Brethren Christian Church. Surely even current members of the cult know that the purpose of the name change was to confuse (spoil the Egyptians?) and masquerade as something they are not.Transparent Exclusive Brethren is an oxymoron.
Their Silver Bullet "How to recover from a mistake," is interesting. They say, "Once the mistake is behind you, get on with the job."If there is a Charity Commission tribunal the EBs will be faced with their mistakes in the form of witness statements written by people who have had their families taken away from them by the Brethren. Charles.
The HEB will be faced with their mistakes and it will be handled in the same fashion they always have in the past - give those they have hurt a fake apology, step over the people they have left damaged and continue to operate in the exact same manner they always have. You know the now infamous saying "YOU WILL NOT CHANGE US" - that says it all.
You. Won't. Change. Us. We will. They have already reversed their ban on giving to charity (although probably only temporarily). They have also reversed their ban on worldlies attending their meetings (although they would need to sit in a roped off area to prevent contamination). If their assets are put into the care of genuine trustees, there may be more changes ahead.As for giving their victims a fake apology and carrying on? It may not be so easy for them this time. The internet has provided a means of sharing information that was not available a few years ago. The amount of information that is now readily available may just be their undoing. I don't think they have a measure of what they are about to face. It is not a handful of disaffected former members, it is a small army of witnesses with plenty of evidence (much of it authored by the HEB themselves, including their unbroken line of Men Of God). It should be a very interesting few weeks.
