A cult by any other name is still a cult and this so-called religion fits the bill. This group caught my attention when an article came across my news feed about a religious group running its own school in the U.K. that was trying to get charity tax status. The article at the Daily Mail was talking about some of the harsh rules that these kids live under and some of the penalties for infraction of these rules. One teenaged girl was shut up (placed in solitary home confinement) for 37 days, just for making a Facebook page. Students at the school, as well as all parishioners, are not allowed to use the internet, watch television, read the newspapers or use cell phones to contact anyone outside the faith. They call us Worldlies and they are not even allowed to share a meal with us, even family members that are not of the "church". Like many cults, if you leave the fold, you are excommunicated and forbidden contact with any one inside, including spouse, parents or children. And like most cults, excommunication is less about rehabilitation and more about punishment as this short video shows:
The Exclusive Brethren is a worldwide organization, with 43,000 members. Australian Bruce Hales is its world leader and "Elect Vessel". The conservative Christian sect has been extremely controversial in Australia because of allegations it tried to influence politicians despite its members being exempt from voting, reports the Herald Sun. There is evidence in some recent court case that the church is being investigated for human trafficking, assault and sexual assault. Some are even claiming murder although that has not yet been proven in court. If you have the time, please watch the following documentaries.
The next Documentary deals a little more with the policy of Shutting Up, which is a type of involuntary imprisonment. It also has a few of the priest on to defend and explain the actions of the church.
Be warned, this is a dangerous cult. Thank you for reading.
Amid all the legal and media hype, Rabbi Shlomo Helbrans, leader of the Jewish sect, Lev Tahor says all they want is to be left alone to practice their religion. The problem is, their practices also include the subjugation of women and the wide spread abuse of children. Rabbi Helbrans, ruler of the sect that has been called the Jewish Taliban, rules this group with an iron fist, considers himself the law of the group and even goes so far as to personally name all the the children in the cult.
The media storm, which started two years ago, centers on fourteen children who had been ordered removed from their homes by child services. Allegations of sexual abuse, confinement, and beatings with crowbars, belts, whips and a coat hanger are among the claims detailed in recently released police documents connected with the ongoing investigation into the ultra-orthodox Jewish sect.
For many children, child abuse begins in the church. The earlier the indoctrination, the harsher the potential abuse can be. An example being a child be told over and over by a parent that the pastor is always right. So when the child is told by the pastor that they need to do "certain things" to get closer to God, but "don't tell anyone because this is special for you", what is the child supposed to do? If the indoctrination has be frequent and strong enough, that child will do what they are told.

Rob Robinson will be speaking about cults and their indoctrination of children from 9 am till 10 am US Pacific time. You will be able to view the full program at This YouTube Channel .From the official Press release:
Vulnerable naive children all over the world are routinely consigned by their parents to faith organizations to be groomed as members of the parent’s faith. Toddlers are led into religious houses of worship and surrounded by hundreds and perhaps even thousands of emotional adherents. The experience often overwhelms and frightens children who have no way of processing what is happening. Most adults commonly encounter difficulty understanding supernatural bizarre religious ideas and rituals. Accordingly, children can suffer emotional trauma and anxiety as a result of practices fostered by the cultural acceptance of endorsing hereditary religion.
Universally, civil authorities are oblivious to the way the practice violates a child's human rights and the emotional damage it can inflict. Although civil libertarians have long objected to childhood indoctrination, perpetrators unfailingly offer the defense of free will. They argue a child is always free to choose a different faith, or no faith, when they reach their majority, (usually 18 years), and leave the family home. This is an incoherent argument because determined and repeated efforts are made during the child's formative years to insure they will never leave the faith. Furthermore, recent brain science research reveals conclusively that constant repetition of the same inputs to the brain results in permanent neuronal configurations that are nearly impervious to change without great difficulty. Moreover, leading researchers increasingly question the age old assumption that free will is a fact. Instead, they assert that free will is a convenient illusion.
Rigorous and prolonged religious grooming that happens to children before their brains are completely developed can shape their thought processes for life. Such abuse ignores children’s human right to an open future free of wanton manipulation and interference and can set them on a path of rigid dogmatism.
On January 20, 2014 the third international protest against hereditary religion will take place involving thousands of participants around the world. The event is being staged in cyberspace and will feature a virtual rally stage with nationally recognized presenters exploring the protest themes and leading real time discussions using internet communication resources.

On Sunday, November 3, 2013 Lori appeared on the World Cult Watch radio show for the full three hours to talk about her time in Scientology from age 13 until she left. She talked about Scientology's evil practice of disconnection and her courageous fight to be able to just talk to her children, who are still in the "church" of Scientology. You can listen to the full show below:
Or you can click HERE to down load it.
The only thing Lori wants is to be able to communicate with her kids without interference from the so-called "church" of Scientology. This past week, on Thursday, October 10th, she once again took to the air-waves to state her case. Lori, who had been a dedicated member of Scientology for over 30 years, appeared on the Andy Johnson radio show in Jacksonville, Florida to tell the story of first having to give up her kids to Scientology's infamous Sea Organization, in an effort to not lose them, and how, when she left the "church" because she could no longer support it's oppressive policies, she lost them anyway due to the Scientology policy of Disconnection. Please listen to her heartfelt story in this segment of the show:
Janette wants to help. Janette, who runs the Truth Rundown website, was a member of Scientology for over 20 years and is dedicated to exposing not only Scientology, but all abusive cults and an end to religious shunning. On the website, you will find a page called Take Action Materials which are designed to help people get back in touch with people they have lost to shunning. She says there, "Trying to reach a loved one who’s shunned you? Maybe you just want to anonymously mail or family something thought provoking? Here’s an opportunity to try a different approach. Thought provoking messages may help guide our to critically think about their church and that could make all the difference. People who are brainwashed are not brain dead, they just need help peeling away the lies they’ve been fed for so many years." You can listen to her segment from the Andy Johnson show here:
Janette will also be appearing soon on the World Cult Watch radio show and we will let you know when that happens.

The American Heritage Dictionary defines Collateral Damage as - Unintended damage, injuries, or deaths caused by an action, especially unintended civilian casualties caused by a military operation. In the Para-military world of Scientology (after all, Hubbard wanted to take over the world), they also have their casualties of war, and they also have their Intelligence divisions (the Office of Special Affairs) to cover them up much like the world governments of today. But religious institutions as well as governments lack foresight. They fail to understand that by trying to keep up their image, they are, in the long run, tarnishing it when their crimes come out later. This is one of those stories.
On this week's World Cult Watch radio show, ex Scientologist Marisa Sigmond called in to tell us the story of death of her nephew and the church's attempts to make sure that the name of Scientology didn't come up in the news, or at the funeral. This eight minute clip should be enough to make you angry.
The topic of the call-in show this week was people who had been born and brought up in cults and cult like religious institutions, and there were other callers who shared their stories and opinions as well. David Love called in to share what was going on in some of the Amish sects lately with the beatings of children and their removal from their homes by family services in Canada and the U.S.

Bob Larson says that at least half of the world population is possessed by demons. That's 3.5 Billion men, women and children infested by demons and victims of curses, some going back as many as 90 generations. Larson claims that he has over a hundred Deliverance Teams world wide, and he is training more every day at his International School of Exorcism (not accredited). The cost to become a Professional Exorcist? Only $4000.00. Plus an extra hundred for the silver plated cross. Think you might be possessed? For only $9.95 you can take the online possession test at his website.
Please join us on Sunday, August 18 at 7 pm Pacific Time, 8 pm Mountain, 9 pm Central and 10 pm Eastern on the World Cult Watch Radio show. Click here. We are going to be investigating Bob Larson and what he has been teaching his "students".
Bob's students will tell you, as they have been taught, that demons can't just enter anyone they want to. They have to have a "legal right". Don't get to comfortable with that bit of news though. According to the girls, you can "catch" a demon by having pre-marital or extra-marital sex, taking drugs, or even having been sexually or emotionally abused as a child because of the anger and hatred involved. The students also say that sometimes, before an exorcism can take place, ancient family curses must be removed.
Watch the following video and see how many hypnotic techniques Bob Larson and his girls use to get "possessed" people up on the stage. Toward the end of the video, you will see what happens when Larson is confronted by a woman who actually believes she is possessed.
Our thanks to Robert Baty, an investigator of religion vs science, for providing much valuable information for this article.
It appears that Lawrence Wollersheim was paying attention to L. Ron.Hubbard after all. At least in part. Mr. Wollersheim is the Director of Universe Spirit, which appears to be an online religion, of sorts. From the very beginning, in their mission statement it looks like a Scientology clone:
We achieve our mission by educating about a new, science-derived and science-grounded worldview called the Universe Evolutionary Worldview. It is called this because it places our human lives and our planet's evolution within the "bigger picture" objectives and realities of the whole universe's evolutionary process. The new principles of the Universe Evolutionary Worldview have been success-proven over 13.7 billion years of evolutionary testing by the universe.
When the principles of this new worldview are practiced by you you will be able to create a true sustainable prosperity for yourself and your family. When its principles are applied to our collective challenges, it will help you to do your part to resolve our most urgent local, national and global challenges.
The prices for online courses range from $10.00 to $50.00 for Introductory courses, up to $750.00 for advanced courses. The group says that you don't need anything to get started but:
For most of our courses, services and events, you do not have to pay something to start or attend, but that does not mean that they are free from some form of fair exchange if you are benefiting from them. Most courses, services or events that we provide are presented on a donate-what-you-think-is-fair or exchange-something-of-value-with-us basis. (We have only a few courses, services and events for which we must charge a fixed fee)
However later on (Scientology watchers will see some Hubbard in this) it states:
To continue taking our courses, services or events is to say in essence that you are a member of our community or are becoming one. Being an authentic community member always requires effort, energy contribution and commitment. Supporting what is supporting you is part of being an authentic community member.
To continue taking courses, services or events beyond the second course, service or event without fair exchange according to the very flexible and situation-sensitive principles set out in this fair exchange summary would put an unfair drain on our community resources as well as our other authentic community members who are financially supporting our mission. Continuing to take any of our courses, services or events beyond the first or second without fair exchange would be to take advantage of both our organizational openness and to freeload upon our generous members and staff and is completely inappropriate in our both our online and offline communities!
What if you can't afford the courses and services? No problem. Ex Scientology staff and Sea Org members will remember this well:
Some individuals cannot afford any monetary donation, but they always can exchange their labor or other services with us to maintain the healthy practice of fairly exchanging something of value for something of value. Therefore, we are flexible and always also open to hearing about special and authentic need situations where no exchange is possible at all and, where our organization can help with a full or partial work exchange scholarship.
