Down the page a ways, Deb, you said:
About my Dad: He has specifically asked me to stop talking about him, which is fine. I promised I would. But I will clarify one thing: He is definitely out of TF, in spite of his affliation with FCF. Other than that, I can honestly tell you I don't know where he stands; not because he's lied to me, but just because he doesn't want to talk about it. I really didn't mean to "muddy the waters" for you, although it seems I have.
I don't think you've muddied the waters. It's just that you haven't really been able to clarify things, because, as you said, I can honestly tell you I don't know where he stands.
I find it more than a little odd that he wouldn't communicate where he's at with you (since you're out of TF & he claims to be too), but I do appreciate your honesty in saying that you really don't know.
My guess is that he is probably 'out' by some definition of the word, but is still very much pro-Family which is why he refuses to make a public statement about where he stands. He's still tied to the Family's (FCF's) apron strings, still receiving FCF money, which makes him still 'in' in a sense.
