What's That Smell?

I think you might be on to something Don. Not True's posts definitely have the tell-tale smell of Family, or at least a supporter. Did you notice that NT didn't bother to respond to my post in this thread?

You know very well where I stand on religious matters, and that I disagree with you on many things. But I have never ridiculed the path you've chosen for yourself as NT has done in these posts. And I don't recall any of the other regular posters here doing that to you either. But for some reason, NT has singled you out for scorn with thinly disguised Bergisms. That, and several other things in NT's posts, some of which you've pointed out, suggest to me that NT is either a Family member or at least a supporter.

The arguments NT makes are similar to those made by Family apologists (eg, that things are different now and we are stupid not to recognize that) and NT's tactics are designed to avert attention away from the real, deadly serious issues by making personal attacks, eg, calling you/us stupid, ridiculing your chosen career, etc. What these people don't realize is that they can't easily disguise the Family's stench they carry. NT almost makes it seem as if TFI has abandoned one of the central tenets of their skewed belief system: forsaking all. I don't believe that for a minute. TFI can make all the cosmetic changes they want to, but at its core it still remains a corrupt and abusive cult.
