There is a faction out there who seems to think that Barney IS in the Family, or has deep attachment to the Family. If that is true, it almost screws up the line of thinking even more. Because, unless you can show me someone doing more on a daily basis, Barney IS the person helping SGA's in large numbers in the world.
If he's an Ex-Member, or a Family member (either in reality, or in his heart), he is still helping SGA's in large numbers. Anyone who wants to refute that can get on a plane to BWI like I did and go see it for themselves. If you haven't seen it for yourself, then you are just repeating heresay.
What I have noticed, and hang on, because this is going to re-piss off a few people in here who have already gone ahead and forgiven me for my unthinkable outbursts (what others might call voicing an alternative opinion).... what I have noticed is that the people who appear to do the most to help people leaving the cult on a daily basis, are also the most deamonized people in this community. I have met three people, and been in their home who match this description. Their names, in alphabetical order are Anneke, Barney and Cancion.
Chew on that one for a little while, and tell me why this community beats their chest, while looking toward the heavens for a messiah to come down and help the ex-members and SGA's. But, at the same time they brutalize these three people who spend every day of their lives helping those people.
I can't believe you made me look for that and couldn't find it yourself?
