Dont even bother mate

Couple of ex eb comment, quote:

Alan Silcock O don’t even bother mate you might as well go back in the way your carrying on bro


Graeme Fisher
Graeme Fisher Alan Silcock couldn’t agree more, been out since 1990, moved on years ago. I only look at this page to see if there is anyone I know here. I just feel sorry for the poor soles (all my family included) that are still deluded by them. Move on folks, the world has so much more to offer.
The old saying a bad attitude is like a flat tyre, can’t go anywhere unless you change it. Living in the past digging up old wounds is a waste of time and just poisoning you all. Time to go back and try your luck at changing things (that won’t happen) or let it go and enjoy your freedom


Peter M Clarke
Peter M Clarke That’s may be fine for individuals,but it’s impossible for people who have left a spouse or children behind them.They may get on with their life,but the loss will never leave them


Alan Silcock
Alan Silcock But they new that what ever they did to make the brethren feel they did wrong was of there own making it’s like a football match if you make a mistake you get punished and unfortunately up pay the price and in the individual it’s the loss of not being able to see your wife or your children and the individual new what they were doing and if they did not take that into there consideration then they are fools my friend


Peter M Clarke
Peter M Clarke You cannot characterize everybody who leaves as a personal decision( ours very definately was) many leave ,or were thrown out of the EB for a variety of reasons, not all by personal choice .I know people who lost family and friends who did NOT make the decision to leave,they were victims of a myopic despotic ledership or politics and were merely in the wrong place at the wrong time ,or guilty by association.JHS was well known for his despotic and cruel witch hunts that left many ‘loyal’ brethren outside looking in with no chance of ever getting their familes back..For some of them it was only after they were free to think for themselves they realized how they had been taken in and brainwashed.But even those who have moved on and made a new life have some kind of hole left.The saddest of all we’re those who ‘accepted’ their discipline and lived in ‘separation’ desperately hoping to get back in time to ‘die in fellowship’ wife’s uncle was one of them…no friends, no family, no fellowship ,nothing but after 30 years as graciously allowed to come back to some low place within the door and died 6 months later…wonderful ‘object lesson‘ that served its purpose as to what happens to people who fall afoul of the System…

I figure that Bruce Hale would be happy as a pig in a pile of horse poo,if in fact every ex eb was short-sighted enough so as to not bother .

Both Alan Silcock and Graeme Fisher seem to have concluded that online action by ex eb, has been unable to achieve anything, thus far

I’d disagree .

On face value it might appear that no progress has been made. I guess. Specially so  (i guess) too, to sorts of people who are the type who are perhaps more inclined to be “not bothered” type of folk.

Little doubt during time of slavery as well. I’d hazard to guess there were also some these “not bothered” type of slaves back then as well then too. Why bother to waste your time they’d say. Move on. Forget about it. Let it go. Blah blah blah


Trouble is though, if we’d followed the wisdom of these bright sparks. Chances are, that slavery might have still even been continuing, exactly the same way like what it was previously before

Some people are unable to see invisage how any progress has been made. Unless it become so blatantly obvious, that it just would be way far too hard for anyone to be able to miss .

Cult leaders would love it to bits too, if we were to all think/act the same way like the “don’t bother mate” kind of people do. Imagine it. And imagine if the media were also to begin to all act in the same way as well too.

Just “don’t bother” mate. That’ll help matters heaps (not)

Cults like the Brethren wouldn’t have any need to pay for public relation (PR) companies advice. Would they?.And would have no need to enter into contracts either (Contracts that were bound to catch them out)so as to try and continue to cover up sex abuse

They wouldn’t have reason to be feeling any heat  (heat of which in fact then help to make cult leader ,act clumsily enough so as to enter into some stupid dumb fuck contract that are more or less bound to get found out, in the long run)

Because nobody (none of us) would ever even be bothered enough to be questioning if sex abuses had happened, or been covered up


Plus, the Charity commission could also return right back to sleep again as well too. Be able to totally forget about the question in regard of whether they are rewarding harm, through allocating charity status to cults that ruin people lives, once more

And to the “just don’t bother clan” , perhaps they might even conclude that this would in fact be totally brilliant .

Who knows?

And as the Fisherman pointed out, there is doubt that these two people even considered that there are in fact folks whom remain fairly unable to ever move on, being that they still have wives, husbands or children that still remain within the cult

Some folk happen to still totally love/miss their loved one evidently?. How inhuman can some people be  ?

Imagine if Hitler might have been blessed with opposition of the “just don’t bother” type clan too.

Been bloody brilliant . Well for Hitler it CERTAINLY would have been anyway

Like a gift

At the end of the day, Bruce Hales (nowhere near as powerful as he’d have liked to think he is) , wouldn’t have been forced to allow the Brethren youth of today, to enjoy the kind of things like what many of the Brethren youth of today now can in fact do, either

If we had of followed the wisdom of the “just don’t bother” clan


The only reason why the Exclusive Brethren youth of today, have now been allowed far more freedom.To enjoy their life more. To choose to wear the clothes they like to. To cut their hair the way they’d like to .To go fishing, or to go on holiday, or go to the beach And so on

Is partly due to the scrutiny of which us ex eb members have also helped to impose upon the Brethren CULT. By helping to highlight the way things were previously

I saw it said,somewhere, Brethren had evidently once said “you wont ever change us”

Well well. That so huh?

And yet

And yet the Brethren have indeed still been forced to need to make certain changes already 

Haven’t they

These days the Brethren have need to be far more careful, about mistreating any of their youth too. Very much so

I hazard to guess, that a Brethren leader would now need to think twice, now these days now ,before daring to be stupid enough (again) to dare to try have any gay Brethren youth put on medication like this what had previously happened here

Why so?

Or otherwise we/us EX EB will promptly pounce on it and help to expose it (IE:expose the mistreatment)

Yeah damn sure we will

The Brethren cult could come to me today, and offer me any amount of money, to stay quiet. I’d promptly tell them to go shove it right where the sun don’t shine


I would

Im not interested in money

As i’m far more interested in continuing to help to right wrong. More interested in helping to change the future.

I just wish that more people might have taken action far earlier before now. Like generations ago before we were even born. So that my own family might have then been given the chance ourselves, to have lived our lives without the curse of cults

Why hadn’t it happen ?

Because beforehand the “don’t even bother mate” clan ,were far more prevalent before, than what they are like now today


Back in the day, beforehand, the “don’t even bother mate” type clan of people,had already been able to become so prevalent .

Than even when a old womanizing drunk, was acting as Brethren leader

Like this here

What happened about it ?

Absolutely nothing . Few people even spoke up about it

Why so?

Because more people ,had far preferred to just take the “don’t even bother mate” type of stance 


Very likely because they had felt like it felt far easier for themselves to do

But then hey.Perhaps not everyone always chooses to take the easy road ?
















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.
