Should you wish to raise a concern about a charity in Australia


  1. A female friend of yours (not sure now!!!)4 December 2013 at 23:11

    Laurie - why are you attacking a charity?? that is not something a gentleman does!!
    I really am appalled by what I am finding, I never thought it of you!

    1. What Charity do you refer to, you don’t make it clear ?

      If you are referring to the Exclusive Brethren, may I kindly suggest you do some homework and research about that group, renamed in 2012 as Plymouth Brethren Christian Church

      You will quickly discover from easily available documentation, news reports, television documentaries etc, that

      - The charitable activities of that group only started after the Charity Commission challenged them in 2012

      - The RRT was only set up by the Exclusive Brethren in 2012 and the public cant be a member as its only members of the Exclusive Brethren who can be members of the RRT

      - The new name of Plymouth Brethren Christian Church was only set up in 2012, from 1848 onwards the groups has been known as the Exclusive Brethren

      - Just because the Exclusive Brethren make donations to other Charities, such as the British Heart Foundation for example, does not in itself make the Exclusive Brethren eligible for Charitable status. If it did 99% of the UK population could claim Charitable Status !, as members of the general public each and all give to Charitable causes at some stage

      - Giving sandwiches to firemen in the UK, is not genuine charity, as they are not hungry, poor, destitute, in need of drug rehabilitation, suffering illness, orphaned, suffering abuse, homeless, etc. Fireman are in fact served perfectly well with their own on board ration survival packs and are already supplied refreshments if required by the long established and genuinely charitable Salvation Army founded in 1865, unlike the PBCC or RRT which was set up in 2012.

      - No organisation can be genuinely charitable if it also causes harm and detriment.

      - Under the shinny glossy skin of the PBCC its still the Exclusive Brethren, who divide families (if a person leaves the group they are cut off from all left inside including close relatives, such as spouses, children, mothers, fathers, grandparents, uncles aunts etc) , who separate from all non members, are not allowed to eat or drink with non members even if those non members are relatives or other Christians, are not allowed to worship, fellowship or have communion with other Christians, who are not allowed to go to any other Christian church to hear the Word of God, who are taught hat you cant be a Christian if you leave the group etc etc

      - So they cant possibly be Charitable until they have resolved their own harmful practices and they have no benefit to the furtherance of the Christian faith as they separate from the rest of the Christian faith !

    2. To the Lady/Mr Brethie/Granny/whoever you are: I suggest you best have a read of then think for yourself. Are The Plymouth Brethren (Exclusive Brethren) Christian Church eligible to be called a charity?

      A lot of us certainly don't think so.
