I can't believe someone would say such a stupid thing as "there have been no flee funds in TFI for over 15 years now."

Like I. Rolle, says below it's a question of semantics. Maybe they don't call it that anymore, but the real issue is not what they call money held in reserve for emergencies, which most certainly they continue to keep. The real issue is that Family leaders have always fleeced their flock, and they have a higher standard of living than their followers. They earn nothing themselves but what their followers blindly give them, money which is also usually not earned but begged for. The latest evidence is that TF is now buying property where leaders can live in luxury while exorting their followers to abstain from worldly wealth.

It seems suspicious to me that you would take issue with calling their emergency funds "flee funds" while ignoring the greater issues of fraud and exploitation.
