THE Australian base of a US religious cult — whose founder quit amid a wave of allegations of sexual assault — has sold for $9.5 million on Melbourne’s fringe.
The Institute in Basic Life Principles’ 3.36ha “Yarra training facility” at 111 Mangans Rd, Lilydale, was on the market for $6 million.
The IBLP has run its home school program and seminars from the property, which features on-site houses, apartment complexes, conference centres and a commercial kitchen.
IBLP Australian director Robin Harrison said he believed developer Westrock had purchased the site to turn into housing lots.
Freedom of religion/religious liberty ?
Cults and loads of domineering religious groups, are hidden away all over the place everywhere.
Few people would even care?. Few “main stream” Christian would even seem to give it a second thought?.Next to nobody gives a damn unless it so-happen to affect themselves personally
Main stream Christian attitude evidently ? … Following in the footsteps of Jesus so they say !
Jesus cast out the commercialism https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleansing_of_the_Temple
Setting people free from religious bondage.Therefore Jesus was ushering in a positive form of freedom of religion ?
No money to be made in allowing that to continue to happen though.Is there ? . No possibility for use of coercive power over “other people” ?
No way !
Mainstream Christian don’t even care to help champion it.No way.What will help to keep the parents cultural church coffers full then? .How will they make sure the church hierarchy remains dominant?. Unless freedom of religion/religious liberty would only ever be upheld in a negative sense
Even many ex eb still don’t care to need to face this fact.
No way ! . The thought is just far too distasteful for many ex eb to ever even need to accept .
They enjoy clinging on to their cuddly rug within the idea that religious freedom has always been something honestly upheld
Many ex eb faithfully choose to exist perpetually with cognitive dissidence
1 On one hand many ex eb would still staunchly refuse to ever accept that freedom of religion hasn’t honestly been upheld
2. On the other hand many ex eb actively complain due to having experienced effect of religious tyranny
It seem (to me) something kind of like as if they want to keep the cake, but still be able to eat it too.
1.They like to be able to keep negative form of religious freedom, because this negative form of freedom will also then allow for themselves to decide to dominate and therefore coerce other people (including their own children) to need to live within religious rules they follow themselves.Meaning they are still actively able to use coercion (force) to help evangelize “other people”
2.However the don’t enjoy the very same aspect of coercion (force)when it happen to also affect themselves in what they will only then agree to consider as being detrimental “unto themselves”
Anybody (like me) who’d ever dare to try and actively point this out to them.Is promptly only considered as an “opposer” or a “troll”
What they want is a miracle. For they demand positive religious freedom to evolve from within realm of a negative form
As if that can be guaranteed to happen.As if it’s even so likely to happen , when there is this potential of money and power?
