The Sex Lives of Godmen Of spiritual Healers, hypnosis artists and sexual exploiters BY Mihir Srivastava

This essay from Open Magazine/ 5 October 2013 is a very helpful analysis from an Indian perspective of the issues we have been dealing with in regard to both sexual abuse in some Christian contexts, but more directly in regard to our commentary in regard to Tantric Sex in Lamaism. Because it does not directly look at the Tibetan Tantra directly, but shows the way westerners approach this subject it is a helpful mirror to hold up to these practices in the West. It also has relevance for those studying the influence of Tony Quinn. Continue reading

More documentaries added

Two documentaries on Satanism, one based in South Africa and the other in Poland.

A look into the conspiratorial world of Secret Societies.

And lastly we have a piece which looks at the story of Ricky Rodriguez who was a former member of the Children of God. This documentary features footage from Ricky’s suicide video where he explains why he committed murder and suicide. Be warned that this piece is quite graphic in places.

The full collection of documentaries can be accessed in our resources section.

The Jeremy Kyle show

The Jeremy Kyle show is like the Bovril of daytime TV – either you love its format of bringing people of differing opinions onto the same stage or you hate it for being trash TV. Whatever your sentiments, there can be little doubt that the Jeremy Kyle format certainly allowed a rare look into the issue of cultism.

It is interesting that both audience members who had been victims of cultist abuse saw parallels between their group leader and David McKay.

Juliana Buhring is involved with RISE International Foundation

RISE International

RISE International works to protect children from abuse in cults. It has the knowledge which should be used to help the victims of abuse in Ireland. Though there is little involvement of the The Children of God’ currently in Ireland we want to provide a connection to the clerical and institutional abuse experienced in Ireland. These people have so much to offer, as was seen in the interview on TV3 which can accessed in any part of the world.

Here we wish to provide the historical background for people from Ireland to leave their stories. The Director met in Faith Berg on the opening night in the summer of 1972 in London and was invited to Bromley where a guitar was played in his face, You got to be a baby!

In Ireland they were in Haddon Road, Clontarf and it was there that Una McManus decided to exit. Her book not fora million dollars tells her story. Many of the early escapees remained Christians, now the abuse and conditioning was so strong it has led to a total feeling of nausea around the faith. In the 70’s they were in Newcastle, Co Dublin and had many bottles of water stocked up as they awaited a nuclear explosion.

In the 90’s they were around Duleek Co Meath and were still advocating open marriages. Gordon Melton visited them there.  They ran a propaganda outfit at the Inform Conference in London in 1993 and again in 2001. Abi the big mama who ran this operation sanitisation from Luton.  We have befriended many survivors and a lot of victims who never recoverd following their immersion in this serious abusive group.

Please if you are one of them leave your story here: Continue reading
