Netherlands Workers letter to Friends

A well written letter accurately describing the extensive sexual abuse issue within the fellowship and expressing a certain determination to deal with it.  Yet it does skillfully evade the hottest issue of them all -- "How and if perpetrators and enablers" should be accepted and welcomed in the fellowship meeting culture!"
I
t is this issue that has violently split 2x2ism in North America - 

FB group 2x2 Church Updates added the following note.

Some added context that we found interesting and worth mentioning is that there are approximately 250-350 church members in the Netherlands, with 12-14 workers assigned to fields within the country.

This post and the previous are part of the same ugly power-grab sequence.

The ultra self-righteous claim to be the "higest power" -- and the right to disregard their own miserable failures.

 

* AFTT response to this "Fendler" letter

Published on FB group AFTT (AdvocatesForTheTruth)

*A very significant recent hard-line policy declaration by 2x2 spokesmen!


This is an ugly declaration by the senior workers saying that unless concerned people regard 'the workers'  as the only true and geniume God established ministry (including those that are perpetrators and enablers)  -- and folks are willing to express commitment to this ministries ordinances and policies  ... these folks will be rejected from the  fellowship! and all others will be hindered from fellowship with them
 

This is, in reality an age old 2x2 policy from the groups begining in the late 1800s

A group now with over 7000 members world wide.

This is a list of conventions where workers with "perpetrator allegations" have been made welcome.  Sadly,  Canada is well represented on this list.

Note that when 2x2 senior workers have welcomed folks with 'allegations',  it also indicates that leadership has choosen to publicly declare the surviving victims as 'untruthful' and that their sexual trauma has been deemed insignificant to the organization.

"Court went well today. We have scheduled another meeting with the Court on January 22, 2025. Pre-trial applications will be heard May 27-28. Unfortunately, witnesses are to be excluded from both of those proceedings.

The trial is scheduled for September 8-12, 2025. We had to shift it from the August dates because the Court was worried we would not have a judge available to hear the matter."

There are also suites that can accommodate 4-6 people.

In principle this letter says that as long as  no forensic evidence gets left behind (witness),  molesting children is declared acceptable within  2x2ism and perpetrators protected  (This policy is justified by 2x2 bible interpretation!!) 

Not only have perpetrators been declared innocent ... those who have been exposed and victimized have been condemned as guilty of dishonesty.

By this letter 2x2 leadership has clearly accused and determined that the victims are  guilty of false  accusation--- And condemned to that shame.

 Highly unlikely they have the slightest forensic proof for this accusation .  These victims aren't even mentioned in this high sounding senior worker proclamation of clear self interest

'2x2 Church Updates' response to Darryl Dolands decision
From FB group 2x2 Church Updates
 


And the 2x2 moral circus continues!


Now the same organizational level that has caused these horific issues takes it upon themselves to make their own private set of rules and policies ..Policies non-aligned with advice from an independant group of professionals that had worked out a plan for child safety in the fellowship.

Now the apparent concensus is that every regional 'monarch' can make up 'his' own rules and policies ... Exactly the same personal flexibility that is responsible for the horrific immoral developement the last 100 years.

The active choice of the ministry NOT to accept or implement guidelines drawn up by the team that was meant to dimish the dangers of the Child Sexual Abuse and other Sexual abuse  issues that have proven to be extensive within the ministry and fellowship.

Somewhat of a pityfull discussion made in a futile attempt to salvage   vanished organizational dignity!!

A relevant quote from Wings -

"There is widespread belief by workers that actions should be guided by common sense and the Spirit, yet that has failed over the last century. Being spirit-led, i.e. doing what I feel is right, has resulted in rampant dishonesty, manipulation and harm to thousands of victims and has violated Christís principles, virtues, compassion, truth and even basic justice."

There are many other highly alarming statements. Please watch.

On June 13, 2024, ABC Hulu will air a 50-minute segment about sexual abuse in a secret sect referred to as the "2x2s." Part of the segment tells my story about being sexually assaulted in 1982 by Steve Rohs when I was 14 years old.

Since 1986, I have been pleading for the 2x2 leadership to protect other youth from Steve Rohs. They refused. I have since learned that my experience was not isolated, and child sexual assault and sexual assault is rampant in the organization. This has caused me to commit a significant part of my life to expose the widespread abuse in the 2x2s to protect others.

When I started this mission of exposure, I could never have predicted that 38 years later there would be a documentary exposing the massive amount of crimes within the 2x2 organization. I could never have predicted that my experience was just one of thousands; that countless other survivors like myself had been silenced for decades; or, that the 2x2 leadership would protect and promote pedophiles and perpetrators within the organization.

Now, the crimes and corruption of the 2x2s is finally brought to light for the entire world to see in this stunningly accurate and factual documentary produced by Lauren Lantry of ABC. Despite having to relive the abuse, I feel honored to be a part of this project. I am filled with gratitude for the research and integrity that Lauren Lantry and ABC have displayed through these last several months in producing this documentary.

I am only one of many survivors who participated in this documentary. I admire and respect every survivor whose courage and bravery allowed their voice to be heard in this documentary. My heart goes out to all survivors of the corrupt 2x2 organization. My hope and prayers are healing for each and every one of you.

Together we are making a difference~

A key term in recent discussions about 2x2 moral issues is "allegation." An allegation is essentially a well-founded and shared suspicion/suggestion of some form of misconduct. It does not necessarily require forensic evidence. When evaluating an allegation, the burden of proof need not rest on the identified victim but more on the alleged offender. The term "allegation" then remains active until the matter be conclusively resolved

This post is particularly significant to me because it addresses numerous forms of abuse beyond child sexual abuse. These other forms of abuse are equally pervasive and devastating within the group but have received less focus in current discussions.

Visitors to Canada with allegations (this includes Canadian workers labouring abroad) You will find, in the following google document, information about workers with allegations, who visited (mostly Eastern) Canada during the years 1972-2023.
Those in red font have CSA and/or SA allegations ; those in black font have allegedly mishandled or covered up said allegations.

A contraversial document naming  allegations of many of the workers with top positions within 2x2ism

Visiting workers to Canada with allegations (May 2024)

Explanation from FB group   'Exposing Abuse: 2x2s'  
 

There has been some confusion about the two Google docs I posted.

First, they are not mine and I did not compile the information. The owner of the docs asked if they could be shared here and so I agreed.

Second, the dates on the document are the dates the worker was attending that convention. It does not mean that they abused someone at each convention they attended. There is also a column that lists their allegations.

Third, this was only compiled with a few conventions in Eastern Canada from 1972 to 2023. So it is not a complete lists of all the different conventions across Canada.

Lastly, since we don't have the information as to what year they abused someone, we just lists all the conventions they have attended.

I hope this brings a bit more of an understanding on how to read the two documents.
