Sorry if it sounded like I was "attacking poor Joseph". All that matters really is that they get more than enough money to pay for the memorial.
Joseph did however make a statement that raised some questions in my mind. "I would like to see at least $1,000 come from the NDN PayPal account."
Do I, an ex-member FG, desire to be represented by NDN in the inter-generational context of donating to Ricky's memorial? That's the implication I got from "...come from the NDN PayPal account." No, I don't want to represented by anyone. Becoming an individual responsible for myself in the imperfect society of man I'm a part of has been my recovery from the cult.
I don't have anything personal against Joseph, I hope he understands that and I don't mean to be harsh, if I sounded that way at any time it has been unintentional.
