Quote:

If Australia's Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse tells us anything, it's that rule-bound, male-dominated hierarchies, such as the Catholic Church, private schools and corrective institutions, create the environment for some men to commit crimes against the children over whom they hold sway. The power of the institution is then bent to covering it up.

The Royal Commission has examined everything from Sydney's Knox Grammar School to the Jehovah's Witnesses; Cardinal George Pell to Tennis NSW. But not the Exclusive Brethren, a wealthy Protestant sect of 40,000 worldwide (including 15,000 in Australia), led by Sydney-based Bruce Hales. Among the Brethren (now rebranded as the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church), public scrutiny is shunned just as surely as are radios, TVs, voting and other trappings of "worldly" society.

So far this group has managed to fly under the radar.

That is about to change
.


Holy Cow! I would not like to be in Crossview's shoes about now.

The Aussies are exposing everyone!

Go Australia :D

Tragic.

People just keep getting away with these crimes. There seems to be no end to the bad news.


Not down here they ain't getting away with it. There is no statute of limitations and court case after court case is going through. Money doesn't buy a light sentence. Even the Kiwi Triber who committed such crimes went to jail.

Very interesting development.

Persistance pays off and in Australia no one can hide.

This development with Cardinal Pell has been in the news here in the US today also. So everyone is watching. We shall see how this turns out. The Pope needs to show he is serious ... no more protecting of any abusers in the church, even if they have a high rank.

:evil:

In a short television interview, Cardinal Pell stated he would return to Australia from the Vatican to "strenuously defend" the charges. There is no extradition treaty betweeen Australia and the Vatican, but public pressure will be high, as this case has gathered much steam and the public have little affection for men of the cloth who hide behind and in the church.

This is going to be interesting and could be a defining moment in the Popes tenure.

The author of this review of Crossview Australia found them "rude" in their reply. Now why is that no surprise.

The review seems to indicate a group that is rather evasive, hmmmm wonder why?

Wow. That is extremely fascinating!

Yes, yes. Crossview is evasive. So is Ethnos360, which we know to have a close (but secretive) connection with Crossview.

This review is very helpful for those wanting to ask real questions about the organization, particularly financial ones. I am not aware of anyone who provides such reviews in the US. I would expect they would find the same evasiveness here, were they to dig into what is going on in Ethnos360 (formerly New Tribes Mission), or in the many splinter companies which have now been set up by Ethnos360 members.

An item in this review that surprised me was the one about donations to Crossview not being tax deductible. Does that sound right? One of the big selling points of Ethnos360 is that donations are tax deductible. If they weren't, I expect the mission would experience a significant drop in their income.

This might help:

I'm rather perplexed that this official document states that Crossview was established in 1956. Ummmm I don't think so. NTM Australia was established last century, but I'm not sure it was in the 50's, but Crossview denies it is NTM or has any connection. Also of note is that it is listed as not being a "Basic Religious Charity", but it's purpose is "advancing religion".
