If I had been a young MK who had taken their own life, I hope that my family and friends would weep, I mean really weep! Weep at the terrible waste! And I would hope that my parents would ask why with all their heart! And if they found out that it was because I had been a victim of abuse, then they would do everything in their power to track down who had done the abuse and make sure they suffered consequences that would makes sure that they never abused another child!

Then and only then could I rest in peace!

I know this is a terrible terrible subject to discuss, but this is reality in cults!

Maybe we can prevent another tragedy by understanding WHY!

I've been reading here for quite awhile. While I'm not a missionary or MK, my heart breaks to read of all the atrocities that have happened and, even worse, the numerous cover-ups undertaken rather than doing the only right thing...turning each and every one of these offenders over to the authorities and cooperating with each investigation to ensure that these wolves in sheep's clothing spend the rest of their lives where they belong - in prison. Even worse is the total lack of concern in so many cases for the victims, may of whom, as has been aptly pointed out, have been given a life sentence without any possibility for parole.

As a Christian man, I am infuriated by the actions and, in so many cases, the lack of appropriate actions, which have contributed to so many lives being needlessly destroyed. God IS NOT pleased. In tears, I stand with each and every one of you in demanding that the many missions, churches, and agencies that have acted in such atrocious ways repent of this and do whatever they can and should to see the perpetrators brought to justice and the victims get the love, support, and counseling they need to help them as much as is possible. The stonewalling, lying, covering up, not caring, or outright ignorance (voluntary and self-induced) simply must stop now.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to read here and get a grasp of what has happened to MK abuse survivors and their supporters. Your observations are astute, and your support is deeply appreciated.

These forums, once very active, have for the most part gone silent. Not because we have run out of things to say, but because we feel we have exhausted our options and lost our hope of ever seeing NTM (now Ethnos360) respond in a moral and Godly way to our issues and concerns.

Your post makes me wonder if there are others out there who are still taking the time to read the many paragraphs we have written here. Perhaps we have not yet reached the end of our journey.

Thank you for your compassionate tears, and for taking the time to let us know publicly that you care. It truly means so much!

Thanks for taking the time to write this. I agree, pedopiles should have been turned over to the authorities and dealt with by the full force of the law. If the first offender had been dealt with in such away that it sent a clear message to all, it is reasonable to extrapilate that the mission environment would have been a much safer and pleasant environment.

Instead the whole saga is one big mess. And there are very few winners. As for the "lost in foreign lands", I think they got a raw deal. Rarely mentioned and the hard earned $ of the donors is more likely to end up cleaning up the mess of the "faithful" than helping . . .

Yes, it's nice to hear of another man who is infuriated by this situation.
If only this had been dealt with harshly and appropriately in the 1950's when it started.
Or do we know when it started?
We don't know about the 40's---everyone is gone.
Or silent.
:cry: :cry:
