Exclusive Brethren Public Benefit of Charity Status

Lifelong Effects Associated With Childhood Neglect and Emotional Abuse” is known . See details here at sciencedaily site

For sure even some preschool children living within the confines of these closed type groups, like the Exclusive Brethren closed group. Surely have caused some to experience the emotional trauma involved when siblings are being subjected to Exclusive Brethren-type doctrine of shunning and separation. Even when going through the traumatic experiences when cousin’s and other relatives are also being totally removed from existence from within their lives too. In my very early preschool years , i already experienced all the emotional trauma involved when one of my sisters was excommunicated. From that moment on being treated as if she were dead and buried. Her most prominent sin being only that she had chosen to become associated with a non-brethren member of the opposite sex 

These traumatic instances quietly had huge effects on the way we all looked at humanity. I was far too young to understand yet within my own mind, many thoughts raced around and around inside. At the time it seemed like something to be frowned upon, for us to even dare to honestly love and miss our sister. So thus we just shut-up our thoughts within our own minds. And this sad event happening only about a year or two, after our father had also passed away.

Thus how it quietly began to seem to me like, maybe human relationships were all only very fleeting experiences, that were thus best to be kept at arms length. Even then we began to all have our fears that we humans cant dare to get far too attached to each other. I’m sure it effected all of my brothers and sisters and most likely our mother too in this same manner, whereby insecure attachment pattern’s developed. In the next few years that followed that, two more sibling would soon be excommunicated too. And then next on the list was also a number of cousins, uncles and aunts disappearing within our lives in much the same manner

So i’d say ,thus how said behavioral difficulties,and adverse mother-child interactions as was described within this aforementioned Sciencedaily report, surely can, and do begin to occur. Very insecure attachment pattern’s develop this way . Poor sensitivity, hospitality, criticism, or disinterest characterize maternal-child interactions etc. And thus longer-term all the lifelong consequences that also naturally follow along with it.  Ongoing physical and mental health problems; impairments in language and social communication skills and more, that can create huge problems . Specially for ex-member’s in trying to find new ways to try and re-learn how to try and exist, on the outside. Huge ongoing problems with our ability of forging strong-bonds carried on. Experienced not just by myself, but also by all  my brothers and sisters too.  

Whats more, there also may be little hope that children forced into living within these closed type groups ,may even be so likely to receive “prompt evaluation and interventions“. Like this scientific report suggests as important. For the people that exist within these closed type groups, also are not so likely to want to ever deal with the idea, that such problem’s might thus also become far too well documented. Specially when being documented within doctor’s record’s and health system’s.

Even with just my very own personal experiences alone. I can surely personally vouch for much of whats been written within this sciencedaily report.  In regard’s to the long term detrimental effects of this kind of psychological emotional abuse, that’s been based on materials provided by American Medical Association (AMA) . And i can personally vouch for the ongoing detrimental effects of a number of other ex-members experiences as well too. Experiences which can even also be proven via details now documented within their doctors records, if really need be.

But why? should there even be any need for anyone of us to provide public access to said documented doctors records . That then only serve, in further dampening an ex-cult-members self esteem.

When all these modern scientific advances and evidences are now already publicly presented,and available, to help warn our society of such situation’s .

How much longer will it need to go on?. How many more lives will need to be lost in suicide?. Until humanity at large,finally decides that it is themselves that also at least play-a-small-part . In continually enabling these groups to survive . Via the ongoing general-public silence and lack of action.

Sometimes even awarding such continuing nastiness, with offers of tax breaks and/or charity status.Is like rewarding these abusive groups practices. As if production of this form of psychological emotional abuse and suffering, was something that should really also be continually commended as being of some sort of public benefit.

It is my opinion, that abusive groups, like the Exclusive Brethren for instance. Are pretty much getting involved in the ongoing practice of a kind of religious war. A war that even is been allowed the right to use a form of psychological torture. While cunningly disguised under the banner of it being said to be something about , interest of upholding human right to have “freedom” of religion.

Just for interest sake, if instead it were Taliban groups that were demanding right to “freely practice” religious teachings,with doctrine of jihad that suggested their follower’s involvement in blowing infidel’s lives to pieces with explosive’s . Would it also be considered quite ok ? ,for those group’s to also claim “charitable” status. Could it be honestly said ? to also be something about some form public benefit, in upholding these group’s human’s right to retain their religious freedom’s.

The truth of the matter is .The idea that humans even retain right of religious freedom at this present moment in time. Is obviously already a total fallacy . That is unless ? interested parties would really wish to argue that maybe an Aztec migrant might honestly still also retain their own freedom of religion, to choose to sacrifice live human being unto their gods .

Fact is. Religion is already regulated. Certain harmful practices are are under constraint and thus are being regulated. Whether its possibly someones far-preferred choice of “freedom” of religion, or not. It still doesn’t enter into the final equation.

For what matters is how harmful it is known to be.

There has been much huffing and puffing from certain parties interested in furthering the argument that suggests freedom of religion can/should always remain intact . See here for just one instance of information and other links connecting to said interested parties happily involved.

But do they ever sit in their church-pews , and suchlike . And take even a few moments. To stop and actually honestly consider in any real great depth ? . With regard to the likely long term consequences and outcomes of actually upholding the real right of said “freedoms” of religion. If the word “freedom” were to be taken unto the honest meaning ,of true absence of constraint.

If these people were to agree to simply be totally honest with themselves, surely they might need to stop and admit. That there really is no agenda for anyone to want to “suppress religion” . Because freedom of religion has always needed to involve some forms of constraint’s. Due to religious practices being found out to actually be harmful to human life. And even in regards to the Christian faith alone , their holy bible even seems to suggest that Jesus also believed that these form’s of constraint was somewhat important. Or even somewhat highly import.

Or why else ? would he have been said to have thrown out the money changer’s . See here

Evidently the Christians Jesus, didn’t wish to continue to dwell within the realm of simply absolving his own conscience, by playing along in any small part .With regards to turning a blind eye to the detrimental continuing practices of those money changers.

Why ? then do so many believers today. Seem to show such very little interest in all the ongoing abuses still continuing onward ,under the banner of it being all about them only upholding said “freedom” of religion.

Do these silly oblivious fools, honestly think they can simply look-away . And thus-way also absolve their own consciences . Of playing-any-part in such matter’s ?. Secretly pretending to themselves , that maybe these cults rule over society . And thus way can only be those whom should thus ever be thought responsible

Little wonder then . That in these modern times . We also see a number of ongoing report’s ducumenting the matter of people

Increasingly Turning Away From Religion

See here and here and here and even here and here as well too

In my own opinion .

The very visual aspect of these believers great lack of compassion they seem to willingly display. And continued complacency shown being strikingly oblivious to final outcomes that will likely evolve . Without prompt action soon, in regard this dire need for help in counteracting some of theses lingering faith-abuses remaining in religion today.

Continue to react like ashes in their mouth’s in helping further the demise of religion today


About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
