What could this be refering to?


I have wondered and wondered just why so many folks claiming moral interest are so extremely determined to save 2x2ism and retain their place within it  .. No matter how many breaches of moral dignity and indecent policy turn up.

Its not like there are no other honorable options ...

One thing 2x2 has pounded into the membership mindset from the begining is that "We are a little bit superior over every other group philosify or Christian representation in the world"

God likes us a little better than ALL other organizations on our planet!!!"

Professing friends and workers have developed a likeing for  feeling this way, and want to retain that inbred superior feeling!  - NO MATTER WHAT

That explains it well.


The 2x2 culture has obviously bred ignorance into its long term followers .. The brick wall that so many are banging their heads against will withstand a thousand more heads banging on it without change. Time and history has proven this time and time again.

There is a very simple and obvious way to leave this idiotic and morally defunct wall and system behind and continue family life and spirituality in decency and integrity-- 

Why is it such a hard equation?  Maybe because of  2x2 cultural ignorance??  And because its hard for anyone (especially religious folks)  to admit they have been deceived so easily!!  and for so long!!


There is an amzing beauty in the humanitarian moral values expressed in   Christian teaching that some of us were taught as children ..  Things like kindness, empathy, mercy, forgiveness, openness,  honesty, hospitality, decency, non-violence, humility, integrity, respect for others, equality,  thankfulness, service, etc etc  All these most wonderful things that would make our entire world and existance a better place

Unfortunatly these things are now obviously being violently  betrayed and openly defiled  by the very folks that we trusted and expected would protect them.  It breaks our hearts!!  Yet the vast majority of workers and friends choose  to openly violate these  most basic simple values  -- and dismiss them as insigificant in the organization they participate in and support.

Why? Self-interest, self-righteousness, arrogance and hypocricy of the most evil kind. 

Leave it behind!


There are a large number of ’reform’ and information sites and ideas being floated on the internet regarding 2x2ism.. Much of it Information regarding the ongoing sexual abuse scandal that has hit the fan recent months.

Information in large volumes of countless morally despicable happenings within the 2x2 fellowship – and things that have been happening in the shadows for a very, very long period of time.

In its wake, hundreds of other issues of abuse and violations of decency and moral dignity that have been -uncovered. Not just individual failings – but built in systematic failures (criminal issues) all the way from- being fostered at the very top leadership down to the lowest ranking membership in the bottom of the hierarchy and organizational structure of the group.

Good and well – that light has been shone on it all --- but to me, even these information sites are spreading falseness … The false illusion that things are now being dealt with, and return to ‘normal’ will be morally dependable.

This is NOT the first major scandal wave that his hit the group … Reform has always resulted in the following scandal being more despicable and ‘evil’ than the previous.

Why would ANYONE trust ANYTHING the comes from a 2x2 infected mouth today?


What an awful "critical spirit" this author had!!! (Wonder if Dale Shultz would remember who it was that was so critical??  -- ánd maybe expell him! 

"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy"

I am disappointed and in utter shame for all my friends and relatives that knowingly continue in full participation, supporting an organization that has been proven beyond doubt to have systematically  destroyed so many innocent lives with the cruelest and vilest from of moral failure -- for the last 100 years!!

Talk about disappointment and shame!! A religious group that I was part of for a major part of my life … is now undergoing the uncovering of an enormous Child Sexual Abuse scandal … Apparently that has been going on for the last hundred years … and now revealed that it has been enabled by very top leadership. A leadership that has actively promoted different protection schemes for the most ugly and daring of abusers. At the same time as victims cry's have been systematically dismissed, shamed, and even punished for coming forward with accusations of crime that could reflect on the image of the organization!

Of course, much of this has gone on in the unknown darker corners of the organization … Yet even now when it has been clearly brought to light, the vast majority of membership refuses to acknowledge its moral seriousness – and the lives that have been destroyed. Present day membership seem to just brush if off as insignificant in their faith.

Blame has been directed to ex membership for the bitterness of bringing it to light-- some have correctly blamed leadership for their unquestionable role. Leadership has blamed victims for not just quietly accepting their abuse in interest of the ‘testimony’.

To me, a major part of the blame now can be squarely placed on membership, that still choose to knowingly continue full participation and moral support to a despicable organization that has betrayed so many.. The courage to stand for what is right and true apparently doesn’t exist anywhere within the group any longer.



The lost freedom to express genuine moral belief and concern

Just about a week ago I was violently made aware of the extreme terror folks have of family and workers becoming aware of the genuine feelings and well justified moral concerns in their hearts. 

Hidding genuine belief and concern is being regarded as a more important part of life than the most basic honourable principle ... That love of secrecy in reality is also pure and  uncontestable dishonesty!!

And what is hypocrisy?.. Believing one thing under cover, and supporting  something else by active participation.



A woman that could use all the shallow excuses others seem to be  using these days to avoid group condemnation  -- but she refuses to put her stamp of participation-willingness, to an ungodly organization systematically harming people. A majority of membership (and workers) seem to lack her courage and stedfastness of faith.

John the baptist got tired of the religious deceivers following him and compared them to 'vipers'--
Snakes make their moves in 'slithers' rather than honourably forward in concrete steps!!
(wonder why I thought of that just now??)



There is an interesting and valueable promise in several of the gospels in the bible ... Offering a simple non-organizational escape (salvation)  from the heavy wéight of religious ideas that had corrupted  into something extremely far from the realms of decency, honesty and truth.

 It was described as an entrance into a new and wonderful life (almost like a new birth into something simple and new)  where harmony and peace could exist -- separate from the chains of self-good religion that held so many captive in moral embarassment.

The promise is still there for the accepting!


Your personal silence is telling lies!
Don't put all the blame on workers or leadership.

Reform subgroupings are even  implying that a collective can replace individual responsibilty
 to  openly and independantly and personally stand up for truth and simple decency.  

The kerfluffel of Oct 14-16 is a fresh reminder of the enormous terror in many (so called believers) of being expected to personally be held responsible (and take the consequensces) for the things they speak, write and honestly feel in their hearts.

An acceptable situation according to him!!


Phil Robinson (Saskatchewan) has been jailed for Sexual Crime against a 15 year old
Now apparently still an elder for a Wed. meeting

Responsible worker for this
continued abuser protection

Dale Shultz
Very responsible at the time



These days (since the Dean Bruer issue broke in March) there have been literally thousands upon thousands of folks that have finally chosen to share heartbreaking experiences of life destructive issues within the fellowship. A fellowship that they are part of, or have been members in. Not all stories are new --- the issue has gone on now for over a hundred years.

Descriptions of some of the ugliest and demeaning forms of human abuse that have happened on this planet. Things that have taken place in the most private of places -- in secrecy and alone. Then the horror, pain and devastation of this abuse being carefully concealed in the darkest of dark places by top group leadership -- very well understanding what they were hiding and denying.

I personally am losing the slightest capacity for understanding or moral respect for ANYONE who continues to make the active choice to be a willing and compliant participator in this fellowship.

I have lost respect for folks actively making the choice at least once each week to willingly and openly participate and support  this system of ongoing criminal behaviour and ongoing shame for Christianity.

Especially serious for those who confess awareness to the ugly issues at hand – and still chose to be part of it -- Confirming a membership that gives the organization the needed strength to continue.

Excuses abound .. but all are shallow!!
