  1. Wow that was short! Two old fellas saying they helped as non-coms in WW2. I'll bet they can't find anything more recent - like firemen, doctors, nurses, teachers, police etc can they? Or Councillors, MPs, Senators etc. Not a solitary soul.

  2. Wow! Another great extract from the renowned "Drinking our Beliefs" library.

  3. Perhaps the Exclusive Brethren (PBCC) could identify "supporting the nation" contributions made by their members between 1960 and June 2012.
    There has been a flurry of activity some admittedly praiseworthy during the past 18 months but it is very evident that this public spirited effort has been a not very subtle attempt to convince the Charity Commission and public representatives that they are acting for the benefit of the public. The Exclusive Brethren now masquerading as the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church has a pathetic record of charitable and public spirited action between 1960 and 2012 and I defy them to produce hard evidence to the contrary.

  4. EB volunteering in WW2 was frowned upon by the Elders, therefore any EBs who were in the forces, were not volunteers. They did not have a choice - they were drafted.

  5. They've added this page to their website

    They really are getting desperate to show they're not just take take take, but they do get involved in society. Still doesn't make them a charity though! Or even charitable!

    1. According to Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_II_casualties
      The death toll for WWII was between 60 to 85 million people from all causes. That's an appalling statistic. War is a terrible thing. But who else crows about their handful of men who refused to fight like it was a good thing?

      They must indeed be getting VERY desperate. I don't think they have a clue about what they are about to face. Over the coming months we will probably see them lose the charitable listings for scores of affiliated trusts, and their assets will be placed under new trustees. The EB probably thought that delaying the tribunal (by pretending that they were struggling to meet the legal costs) would enable them to amass some good deeds, film them all for evidence, and seek out those who are likely to witness against them so that they can be threatened, worked on, or bought. But it was probably a bad move on their part. They have failed to silence their critics, their good deeds are not convincing, and there is an even larger accumulation of evidence in the hands of the Commission.

      There is not a cat-out-of-fellowship's chance that they will win this case, in my opinion. I am worried about the ordinary members and how they will cope when the system collapses.
