CB has said, 'Does he also understand that FCF may well be the "deep pockets" in a law suit brought against TFI by its abuse survivors?' & she explained why this was a very real possibility, not just hypothetical. If you are actually working for a large law firm & understand criminal law you must surely know that this is a very serious issue.

I have complete confidence that you DO understand this, but what I don't understand is why you're not screaming at your dad to cut ties if he's no longer a Family member & doesn't even like FCF.

As someone born in the Family, must surely sympathize with your fellow victims who have posted hundreds of stories of physical & sexual abuse at MovingOn. It seems from what you've said that you have not personally suffered abuse, but many other SGs have & their need for justice may well lead to the pressing of criminal charges against The Family & its most obvious front organization, Family Care Foundation.

OK, I know you don't want to hear any of this, but it would seem to me that even if your father hasn't listened to you in the past, that you should really talk to him seriously now & warn him that it's urgent for his own sake to cut all ties immediately. This is one thing he simply must make time for unless he wants to see his ministry tainted by FCF.
