Exmembers have been through a lot and have a hard time understanding why someone would be friends with LEADERS of a criminal organization. Are we to be cursed out for even questioning such things? Can't we quesiton without it being seen as a personal attack? I think we can.

Ado and Kanah may not even be guilty of any specific crimes themselves, so they may not have to worry. But their position as leaders makes them responsible to defend all the crimes that were committed. That's why I said Ado should get out of the way, not to hide but to refuse to defend and do PR for the crimes of the cult.

By the way, I do think Joseph and Jane mean well in their attempts to be friends with Ado and Kanah, but they should also understand that friendship with top Family leaders will be questioned.
