If Peters' ministry suffers as a consequence of his affiliation with TFI, that is entirely due to choices he has made. There is nothing hateful or malicious about exposing the questionable affiliations of an individual who solicits funding from the public. Fully informed people can decide for themselves whether or not to support Peters' ministry through FCF. Potential donors have a right to know that FCF is subject to a liability suit being brought by victims of TFI's "unloving discipline." When Peters' fails to give his donors a full disclosure of his affiliations, he raises legitimate questions about his trustworthiness

Once Peters' stepped out onto the world stage as an actor in the movement for social justice and nonviolent resistence, he entered a game with a set of rules that applies to everyone. Peters' can't have it both ways: He can't pretend to represent a legitimate NGO and be an evangelical Christian ministry while maintaining support for a criminal organization that has destroyed as many lives as it may have saved. This isn't a hate campaign. It's just abiding by the rules of the game.
