Goliath of a lesson being learned here, isn’t it ?.I feel so. And what’s more, quite possibly there was never going to be any other way, in which for this kind of lesson might have be learned ,than to be finally learned via this hard way round.
That’s the nature of humans. Sometimes the only way they will learn , is to learn via the hard way round
Consider this. Had it been any number of us others (ex eb,you and me) what were under attack here from litigation by Brethren, then chances are, who would have even give at rats arse so to care about it ?
A fair few, ex eb, wouldn’t even care less. Or bother to say anything much about it. Plenty would shrug their shoulder and carry on with their own life , and carry on as if fuck all had even happen to anyone. Many certainly wouldn’t be bothering to lose any of their own sleep over it, anyways. Would they
It had to end up happening with someone high-profiled like Ian McKay. Or otherwise it just wouldn’t have seemed high profiled enough. Would it ?. Wouldn’t have helped highlight an issue, enough, that has in fact required prompt-attention for many years already before now. Require attention, for more longer than one lifetime
This is a Goliath of a lesson being finally learned here now. What’s being highlighted here is the fact that ex members will have need to become way more organized. So many reason why this would need to be attended to
Consider this. The latest update, now, is that Jill Mytton says ,Quote:
GoFundMe have stopped donations until I can verify the bank account I have set up specifically for Ian’s fund. I have sent them various documents but they are not satisfied that the bank account exists …. why would I make one up? Its a new account currently empty, waiting for funds so I have no bank statement. So if you are trying to donate please be patient while i try to get this sorted. I feel quite upset about it. I have spent the last few days emailing back and forth sending them photos of this and that but nothing is good enough. I don’t get it.
Somehow I will get it sorted and let you know when it is. I feel gutted.
We feel gutted too. First and foremost we feel gutted ,to know that Jill would need to be under this kind of stress. There was no real need for it to happen, bar for the fact, that ex cult members have a high tendency to lack organization as well as lack ability to trust others as well
It’s terribly sad that this situation is causing Jill and Ian so much stress right now. I feel for them. Would wish i’d been able to help them avoid this. But then perhaps this situation might also serve to still help prompt the beginning of a whole new era here now among ex cult members?. Prompt a more “organized” era. Should they all begin to be able to finally learn something from it, now, big time
I surely hope so.
This is a lesson that points out,
- how people who take care to prepared to look after their own interests, will in turn, also in fact end up the people having all of their own interests taken far better care-of, as well too
- That God far prefers people who don’t rely on prayer (even so too, if in fact a-God even actually does exist at all)
- That we are all in fact, still, all in the same boat together
- Don’t rely on “real Christian” to come to the rescue, of us, anytime quick either .Very unlikely to ever happen. Chances are their own lives are still doing just “so fine and dandy” as it is, and so as such they themselves wont ever be effected-personally by detrimental harm caused by cults to ex cult members (lesson being that “real Christian” feel indifferent to full scope of this harm)
Something phenomenal happens with people, once they leave from within cults. After leaving cults behind, the ex cult members are in such a state of disarray, that they no longer feel like they can even know who to “dare fully trust” anymore
Which sadly ,in turn then plays right into the hands of cult leaders “will” as well too. Hands ammo over to cult leaders. For so long as ex cult members continue to fail to reunite to any highly organized degree
This lack of organization has already become the precursor of acts of suicide sometimes too sadly http://wikipeebia.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=14&sid=40903478da2d93118e9d542f6699b431
The exclusive brethren high organization, is not what’s wrong here. What’s wrong, is their misuse of the high organization, that what’s in fact so wrong about their acts
They are not highly organized for the good of all people,are they. But are instead highly organized for good of themselves , so as to then also be able oppress certain people of whom they disagree with
Eb are armed for bad reason
Ex eb have the chance to change this status quo around. Have always had the option to do so too. But it has always required ,first of all, that ex members would need to re-unite together in a honestly united way in which could then begin to work for the good of all . Which would need to cater for lives of believer and agnostic and atheist alike (all)
Only then would ex member nullify the cult leaders power .Nullify the cult leaders claim, that ex members are bound to fail
Nullify the suppression of religious liberty
Turn things around ,so that ex members could then state, ex members are all bound to thrive
This knowledge in turn, could serve , to really help open the floodgate too. That’s most important .Could help pave the pathway for so many more to finally decide it time to also leave from within cults themselves too as well
Cash donation that for now sit within GoFundMe bank account, are perhaps not earning interest for ex cult members benefit .For now, they are perhaps serving to earn interest, instead, for crowdfunding people (For instance,cash, i donated, has already left from within my own bank account.So as such, must also already be somewhere else and earning interest, within another bank account)
This is a Goliath lesson being taught unto all people concerned and involved
I truly hope that perhaps this situation might help to action a turning point in the future plight of people wanting to free themselves from the grip of these cults. Perhaps this present situation will create a great learning curve that could in fact work out to everyone’s benefit, long-term .Even ex members of other cults too perhaps (IE: might provide a positive model which other groups might be able to adopt as well too)
The lesson is this. Ex member should have already had their own crowdfunding set-up in place already. There is no reason why ex members couldn’t have had a trust set-up of their own themselves a well?. Which would then create the option for tax rebate on denotations received. Might then have even been able to run raffles ,even run their own sausage sizzles and so on too, so as to help raise funds .
Not only would this help to raise funds that might then help ex members out. But it would have also served to help make more citizen become more aware of the whole sad cult-situation too. Would served as an excellent venue to also help enlighten general citizen to the scope of this situation. Info could be provided (been handed out and/or put on public display) ,while people were actively involved in different act of fund raising .
God helps the people most willing to help themselves ?
Specially noticeably so, too ,if in fact no God even exist
