I don't understand why so many ex-Peebs are reticent to get involved in fighting against a foe that has ruined their lives to some extent. Despite the most glaring of events, evidence and facts, they soldier on in silence. (Apart from the usual vocalists - myself included. Who most people are sick of hearing from.)
Somebody somewhere has gone to great expense and time to set this website up.
It is our only conduit of facts as they occur and information on this evil little cult that destroys people's lives. A cult that has more changes in direction and compromise in its integrity that any other.
Bruce Hales does not like these sites. He has successfully closed two down already, getting his UBT cohorts to pay dearly in cash, to pull the plug on the last one. With its loss went an awful lot of information and resources. Effectively, the Peebs won.
Without this site the Peebs get away with murder. There is no one out there who will simply report the facts on their increasingly litigious and evil ways. From paying bribes to hose down focus and attention on their attempts to discredit attacks by pedophiles in their midst, to their extraordinary new business ventures which even include 'memberships' from worldly businesses and individuals. All stuff that would have seen you thrown out years ago with the loss if everything.
Today the Brethren are literally a big business masquerading as a church. With all the profits filtering through to the top. Hales has delivered the perfect system to ensure that he and his extended family and buddies live in luxury and operate with impunity. They remain unchallenged and unimpeachable. Their 'congregations' are held in perpetual fear if they speak out or utter a whimper of dissent.
As most must work for brethren businesses, have mortgages with Brethren loans and have extended families within the group, they know that if they step out of line and feel their wrath, they lose the lot. So they are held in that fear and not a bond where they have any free choice. Their only bond should be the love of God. But God takes a back seat to the Hales.
This requires a healthy amount of discussion and input from those people that know better - or know anything.
There are plenty of recent leavers who contribute nothing to the blogs and articles. They should. What is your problem?
Without your input, we don't get to know the current truths and actions of this group that flies in the face of so many human rights issues. You can be anonymous. This site was set up so its origins cannot be traced. Sad that we have to fight them this way, but Hales loves courts. Even after he loses.
Then there is the case of many non- Brethren professionals like journalists who go out on a limb to report their evils and are subjected to a world of hate and litigation when they report the malevolence of this group of people. It takes it out of them. They cannot do this alone. Michael Bachelard wrote a very well researched book about the Brethren and their blatant misguided cruelty to so many people and those that should be most vocal about it - sit mute while the maelstrom occurs around them.
If you are a recent leaver, say the last decade or so, say something. Tell us something we don't know. Tell us something that adds weight to our many arguments. Say something that increases the spotlight of focus and pressure for these people to start doing the right thing for once in their lives.
The PBCC is a farce. It is a church that went off the rails at the hands of some frankly unstable people, with thousands bearing the consequences of their strange anti-Christian dictums and hundreds being so deeply affected that they took their own lives or went slowly mad.
No religion should force you to go against what the bible says with regard to parents and families and marriages, but the Brethren do. They make it up as they go along.
No religion should force you to work for them and them alone. No religion should force you to pray for (and contribute financially) to a particular political party. Even though they do not vote like everyone else. No religion should form a pronouncement on you without the right of a comeback or proper discussion. No religion should force its adherents to dissociate with family members for life. No religious organization should have at its head, a bloody big business, which you must contribute to on request or be socially ostracized for non- involvement or compliance. No religion should have a hierarchical system that is underlined by the importance of how much money people have.
No religion should have closed order schools where worldly children are banned - but expect the people they regard as dirty and evil to pay for them. The PBCC do!
Get off your bottoms and get writing. Start saying something that adds impetus to this vile system that hurts so many people. Stop leaving it up to the few who spend hours trolling the internet for information and newspaper articles and law reports.
If we lose this site - we lose our voice.
And without a voice- they can do anything they bloody well please. And you will have no one to blame but yourselves. Stop leaving it up to the usual suspects to grind away their dissent at their keyboards. Get involved today. If you don't, this whole argument, this whole campaign becomes a stagnant waste of time. And you deserve the loss that you feel each and every day.
I'll shut up now- Over to you. And someone, tie Fisherman up. And me too.
