    Do I have kids or did I read it in a thread?
  1. Oh man.........just remembered another thing. As martindale began the 1998 cost-cutting measures.......he started SHAMING corps couples who had two cars. You don't *really* NEED two cars, do you? You can coordinate with each other and get down to one vehicle, can't you? That would save money......car maintenance, insurance, registration, etc......right? Some of you are just too selfish or lack the spiritual resolve to get honest, get truly committed. Money, money, money..........anything and everything to keep those precious dollars at hq.....YET, no sensible "investment" to the field corps. OMG......what a box of confinement that would have been! All the hundreds of times my wife and I needed two cars to get stuff done. Having two kids.........school activities, ministry events, grocery shopping, etc. The frickking trunk/region guys were gutless in standing against martindale's verbal onslaughts. Lallys, Panarellos, Moneyhands, Licht, Thorpe, Fort, etc.......and then, years later.....many hit the exit door. ~~~~~~~~~ And........it's been the same deal with every splinter group that I've seen......Geer Franchises, CES/STFI, CFF. Just go to their websites.....and the same generic crap, same gig, same cult-manipulation. Money, money, money........all centrally located "activity" and an outreach mask. Ppffffffttttttt.
  2. Twinky.......I don't regard telling my story as "a part of my repentance." I regard this story, Insanity on Steroids......as a warning about cult manipulation and involvement.
  3. To be fair......and upfront, I want to add more clarity to this "housing allowance." I came across some old forms in my files that showed we were given $875 per month to this "housing allowance"........of which, some of it was stripped away as twi continued to purge aspects of "our lifestyle".....ie cable tv, rent insurance, etc. In following the math, this added $10,500 per year......MINUS the $2,760 pay-cut........$35,340 per year (household income for family of 4). ~~~~~~~~~~ At the limb, it was common for me to work 12-14 hours a day. Most every weekend involved classes, seminars, events, meetings, etc..........and a realistic work week, for me, [7-days] was like 90 hours. Add my wife's work schedule....and it would easily be safe to say.....each of us were paid approximately $6.00 an hour. 1998 minimum wage = $5.15 So.......when others wonder about the use/abuse of corps and staffers........exploitation and expendable are at the top of the list.
  4. ........thanks T-Bone. Yeah.....if it wasn't the Illuminati......you might get grabbed by deprogrammers. .............or the threat of a red-dawn gov't overthrow.....so triple-check your mal-pack. .............or if you don't stay in constant "fellowship"........debbil spurts will jump you. Your ONLY safety is in the arms of the cult.......rock-a-bye-bye-baby.
  5. The Concluding Summation of my personal experience with The Way International.......is summed up in five words. TWI IS A FvCKING CULT !!!
  6. ~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~ Rocky........you were right. One post that was NOT included from thread Ghost Ryders.....
  7. Hey Rosalie...........looks like you've pulled a fast one over the Klutz Cabinet, because they all want to stay on payroll. And, it wouldn't surprise me in the least if, in three years, Donna Lombardi Martindale is "installed" on the Cult Board.....and you "step aside." LOL It hardly matters who sits where......that game of "musical chairs" is a ruse. And Rosalie..........my wife just received facebook correspondence from one of your twi-clergy stating that your leadership was/is pathetic. When people on the field are empowered to voice their stated beliefs........they mock hq-leadership and its worthless drivel.
  8. De Lisle will continue to serve on the Board of Directors with the Rev. Rosalie Rivenbark and the Rev. John Rupp. Rosalie gained in power.........more shadows, less work. Rosalie will always hold the deciding vote.....as "former" cult-president. Now, Rosalie holds JYDL's balls in one hand and Rupp's in another. Both guys are too stupid to see this.......and throw her a$$ out.
  9. De Lisle will continue to serve on the Board of Directors with the Rev. Rosalie Rivenbark and the Rev. John Rupp. HOW CONVENIENT...........to keep whispering in his ear.
  10. Akin to the "grease spot by midnight" slander................of lcm. Grandfathered by the "possessed cop-out" shtick..........of vpw.
  11. Ding, Ding, Ding..........Lots of winning answers on this thread.
  12. Well......since I've now told my story here at GSC, I can fill in more specifics. In mid-1994.................I had finished teaching at Rod & Jo Martinda1e's home in Stillwater, OK and as we mingled around afterwards eating cookies....... ........Rod asked me, "Why do all the good people leave the ministry?" That is an exact quote.
  13. Thanks waysider..... Can't imagine how others, if they ever heard about this, would want to send abs-money to fund this.... Maybe this added information will help one more person decide to leave that cult.
  14. ADD........... It wouldn't surprise me in the least if martindale had a LIFETIME twi-issued credit card.........travel, gas expense, etc. Martindale had access to twi's in-house medical doctor. Probably given twi-funded psychologist......as well. And, probably..........twi funded their youngest daughter's college tuition. Martindale worked stints at Bally's & UPS........to supplement his income. Now, at age 68........if he draws monthly social security, say $2,400 per month = $28,800 a year $60,000 + $28,800 = $ 88,800 PER YEAR for life.....................and all of the hidden perks. Not too shabby for a guy who should have done prison time. .
  15. Lots of jumbled assertions and accusations in that paragraph. "you folks want the dirty laundry"...........nope. I want to dismantle the wierwille-mystique and the cult's power to "steal, kill and destroy" others. "an entrusted person, a confidant".........how else would someone be privy to inside information? "it dirties the concept of loyalty, friend or foe".......umm, MRAP have you ever read about the Apostle Paul, a Pharisee of the Pharisees? "evil or good, I despise a breach in loyalty"...........wow, guess everyone who leaves a cult should cower and slink away, huh? Since I started this thread.....let me repeat the gist (first post) of why write "a tell-all book".... Secrets that could bust the wierwille-mystique once and for all? Secrets that could enlighten the geer power-grab and fog years? Secrets that could rattle the martindales and craig's buy-off? Frankly, I could care less about hearing any more of wierwille/martindale/twi "dirty laundry"........who really cares to hear more about seducers and seductresses? about three-somes in Dayton motels, corps girls abused and/or raped in motor coaches? about Cabin 12 at camp gunnison and the set-up wherein corps coordinators made sure martindale was provided privacy and access to selected in-rez girls? What about "the loyalty" to the faithful followers who think (cough, cough) that twi is legit? What about the craig martindale payoff.....the buy-out to silence him? How much was he given up front.......cash money, ira investment, insurance access, nice car, perks, stuff.........and THEN, $60,000 per year for life. At $60,000 per year..............martindale has ALREADY received $900,000. At this rate, .......in another 25 years.......add another $1,500,000. Wonder if the newbie cult-followers understand that their ABS helps supply "retirement funds" to a sexual predator? We know that martindale slithered away into the night to Toledo......to live in a twi-owned house. So, does craig STILL have this added perk? Does twi pay the property tax, electric, water and association fees? If so........WOW, that stretches that $60,000 even further. Then......does craig get access to Camp Gunnison? What are ALL the hidden perks that are skimmed from the cult's "abundant sharing" that pay for martindale's silence? If I were in the twi-cult...............I would want to know this evil. Then, and only then...................could I make an informed decision as to stay or not.
