Exclusive Brethren hush money

Quote:

Potential witness in Exclusive Brethren sex abuse case paid to remain silent

  • Michael Bachelard

 

The Exclusive Brethren church has been covering up child sex abuse for decades, and last year I wrote about it. The story told of children who were denied, bullied or bought off by the religious sect to keep their abuse secret.

The main source for the story was the Brethren’s former spokesman, Tony McCorkell.

World leader of the Exclusive Brethren, Bruce Hales.

A towering, flawed mountain of a man, McCorkell went nervously on the record with me, breaking ranks a decade after leaving the church and confessing to the role he had played in the history of cover-ups. It was a role that ate at his conscience.

What was not clear at the time, to either McCorkell or me, was how far the Exclusive Brethren would go to continue resist the truth being told.

Go on and check it all out for yourself. Via the link just above.They even have copies of txt messages discussing hush money payments

Quote :

The offer was made, McCorkell said later, “because Jenny, Bruce Hales’ wife, was feeling the sting of the barrage of stories, and Bruce was trying anything possible to stop the flow of the negative press”.

Do the right thing Jenny

Do justice a favor now…..Tell the truth about whats been going on .. Because it sure seems that  slob husband of yours, wont ever care to bother to do so (and he drags you-down into the low life gutter along with himself)

The slob is most interested in money and himself

He has empathy about equivalent of a green garden pea.The moron couldn’t even possess the brain so as to properly oversea a decent caring exclusive brethren review.Without harming a whole lot of people in the process (the review was a set-up.A total charade)

You need to do the “decent thing” yourself Jenny

 

 

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.
