But you left the position


Sarah Rowlands

Jeez! The accusations keep rolling in!

My Mum is 79 today so I called her just now to wish her a Happy Birthday 😊 she thanked me for her card.
She is recovering well from her hip surgery on 25 Feb.

I asked her if she’d heard anything more from my visit to Chippenham early February. “Yes and no”, was the reply.
I wanted to inform her I’d learnt this week the brethren had been told of my visit to Chippenham, how “it was laughable I wanted to speak to Mr Hales, but I went away happy and no trouble was caused”. Mum wasn’t aware of this but oddly wouldn’t tell me what she had heard.
I told her I wanted her to be aware of the brethren in Chippenham being made aware of my visit, so as she knew I wasn’t the ‘attacker’ she labelled me two weeks ago!
“You must be against the brethren” she said. I asked how she arrived at that conclusion. “Well you tie these ribbons, and you must be doing it with other people”. I assured her I was at Chippenham alone and nobody knew I was going beforehand. “You’re trespassing” Mum said. I assured I was doing no such thing, “you weren’t in the car park then?” Mum said.
I assured Mum I wasn’t, and that she of all people should know I wouldn’t have been able to enter the car park due to the extreme security that’s in place. I did also remind her their halls were a place of public worship, hence the sign outside, so shouldn’t have been a problem if I’d managed to get beyond security.

Mum said I must be against the Brethren because I keep mentioning the charity commission. I told her the brethren had a duty to do what was requested by law in order for them to retain charitable status on their halls. I asked her if she’d seen the document, she assured me she has. I did say I doubted it had been made available to all the brethren, I also reminded her all I was wanting was a relationship with her and my family.
“You left the position Sarah, you can’t walk away from the position and expect things to carry on as if nothing is wrong”. I told Mum once again I was just wanting a relationship with my family. “How do you know the brethren aren’t adhering to the document?” asked Mum, I told her there were many former members who were being denied a relationship with their families. “But you left the position”, said Mum.
I reminded Mum I was kicked out for introducing my ex to the Brethren, and I had to flee the family home because a certain brother had been accusing me for two months of doing things I’d never done and I couldn’t cope with it mentally. “You didn’t need to leave” said Mum.
Mum wasn’t believing anything I said.
She kept saying I was attacking the brethren.
“Why do you tie these ribbons?” I told her the brethren needed to listen to what they’d been told and show some compassion to former members for a start.
Silence yet again.
I reassured Mum once again I wasn’t attacking the brethren.

I reminded Mum that two years ago, I went to see her to inform her of some sexual abuse that happened when I was 15 (before I went to the Police) and at that time, she believed me, was incredibly sorry. I told her at the time I was fearful of telling her something that happened so long ago for fear of being labelled a ‘liar’.
I also reminded Mum that two months later, she called me to tell me I was attacking the brethren. I asked her why she changed her mind, her response “because it was proved to not be true” 😳
I was astounded and told Mum, how sad so she believed a brethren leader over her own daughter, and reiterated that everything that happened was the truth. “I don’t know, it was sorted out and proved to not be true”. I told Mum nothing was sorted out, it was denied. I also told her she needed to wake up and stop thinking church elders were immune from committing such abuse, because it happens in all religious groups including non religious groups. I told her the brethren need to accept that such situations need to involve the authorities, it’s not something that can be wiped by God.
She didn’t want to know 😢

Once again she came back to the ribbons.
She then went on to accuse me of writing and tying ribbons on her own meeting hall gates with names of people WHOM I DIDNT EVEN KNOW EXISTED, I didn’t even know them as former members, somebody I had met since leaving 😳 😳 and despite the fact I told her I knew nothing about it, she still didn’t believe me.
Yet again, she said I was attacking the brethren. I reassured Mum I wasn’t interested in the brethren and what they get up to, but that I wanted a relationship with HER, MY MUM!

“Will you just leave us alone” came the bold statement!

Mum has assumed so, so much, it is astounding and equally heartbreaking.

The Brethren’s reasoning is totally flawed . It’s as if they must think that by claiming to believe in God, this should then absolve them of accountability . So that their group should be free to cause other people whatever harm they’d like, without any fear of facing  scrutiny or reproach

Imagine if it were a situation of what were to involve a street gang.The hell’s Angels or Black power or whoever. Would the Brethren then be demanding that these group could be able to get away with doing what ever they’d please, without fear of facing scrutiny or reproach 

Would Brethren still see things that way then 

Would they?

What if it were a situation of what were to involve some Muslim. Would the Brethren still be making the same demands too then  

Would they?

What is it with Brethren. When will the Brethren wake up and come to their senses . Will they ever wake up

At present, they are been acting no different than to how the street gangs will also do

Its all about upholding the position

Whether the position is good, or decent, or moral, or worthy of worship…. And so on

Is considered to be beside the point

Considered as “not worth contemplating”

Isn’t it?

  1. If you’d dare to leave the gang position, then the remaining gang members will have need to try to do things, to punish you
  2. If you’d dare to leave the Brethren position, then the remaining Brethren gang member  will have need to try to do things, to punish you too

Same old same old bullshit 

Isn’t it?

All about upholding the position of tyranny 

Isn’t it?

Truth be known

Half the Brethren possibly wont even actually believe in a God at all anyway

They wont

More than likely they secretly wont do

And yet

They’ll still have need to pretend as if they might do though

Wont they?

Or otherwise the Brethren will be angry that they’d have left the position


This is the extent of utter stupidity of this situation 

Whats wrong with the Brethren

Their reasoning is flawed 

Isn’t it?

Poor Brethren

Brethren still choose to act like a ship of fools 

  Don’t they?

How blindly stupid can Brethren be. Acting like a bunch of fool by their socially backward way of punishing anyone who’d dare to be openly honest 

No wonder the Brethren have become overrun by a pack of liars 

Isn’t it?

No wonder

Brethren have been inclined to be constantly punishing the-people who’d dare to choose to be openly honest 

Haven’t they?

Now the Brethren are run by the evil people, like Bruce review wrecker Hales. The kind of people who’s moral are so low low, that they’d be quite happy to attempt to cover up sex abuses, by creating contract to pay to silence the whistle blower 


How did it happen?

They made the-position to become like-God

Didn’t they?

“The Brethren chose to worship the position

Didn’t they?

They worship the Brethren-position . God has been sidelined 

Poor Brethren

Poor of heart. Poor of moral. Socially backward to the-max

The poor things

They’d act like a complete bunch of idiot….. Yet still mange to remain absolutely none the wiser 

Still be lost to explain valid reason for why anyone of us ex eb’s might have ever dared to try leaving from “the position”

That’s how mindlessly thick those Brethren backward bogan have allowed themselves to have become

Their position is obviously crap… And yet Brethren remain none the wiser

Still sailing on blindly-ahead like

A ship of fools 

Their noses still shoved right up the butt-cheeks of Bruce review wrecker Hales & co

Acting as if they’d be able to brown nose their way into eternal life in heaven

It might be hilarious too

If it wasn’t for the reality of the extent of harm of like what it causes to people like Sarah Rowlands

When will the Brethren wake up



Your “Brethren position” is most certainly nothing that anyone of you, should have any reason to still feel proud of 

God most certainly wont feel proud of it

That’s for sure 

You’ve been led by evil people who’ve been even willing to create contract to cover up evidence of sex abuses 

Their tactic have been exposed 

Publicly exposed 

There is no question that your hierarchy have been up to no good 

Makes you wonder

What the hells wrong with our governments

They need to wake-up too

Don’t they?

Why are they still supporting these 

Religious gangs 

By way of still rewarding them through charity status 

How can that be happening?

Our government ought to be ashamed

They have acted irresponsibly

Haven’t they?

Given  very little concern for the health and safety of their citizen  

Us ex member really ought to be suing our governments  




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.
