The only abuse I could say was scary was verbal abuse and physical restraint from my first WOW family coordinator.

I heard stories from people who were in rez who got smacked on the head if they fell asleep during their study time. I heard E* H*rn*y was famous for that.

NOT____I was grabbed by the arms and shoved against my refrigerator for getting a drink of water.

I was so scared that I never told anyone til we got out then I told my hubby. He was mad (not at me). and said if I had told him what happened he and my son would have taken care of him good fashion.

Wish I had now cuz he made my life a living hell after that.

Hey, I got some good verbal abuse. 6 people in a room accused me (some yelling at me) of causing my own 2 miscariages because I wasn't giving enough money.

My poor husband was like a deer in headlights. He didn't say a word to help me.

No I never experienced physical abuse though

knew people who did. Of course I know that

there are some VPW loyalists who will use the "logic" that if you didn't see it yourself then it didn't happen. And even if it did you probably asked for it or subconsciously enabled it. Unfortunately there are people

who post at Gspot who think like that...

But there was tons of verbal abuse , not

directed just at me, but ,at different times,

the Twig, the Branch, and once the entire

Limb. We weren't getting enough PFAL classes

running so the entire Limb was blistered

for being out of fellowship.

In the mid 70s it wasn't that bad and towards

the 80s it occurred with greater frequency and

into the 80s it became standard practice. I

had had enough when a well known Way sax player

DC chewed me out for something he thought had

happened. Those who know him know that he was/is blind so I'm not sure how he drew the

conclusions that he did but it didn't stop

him from screaming,foaming and doing his best

LCM imitation that he could muster.

It was a sign to me that things had gotten

really horrible when normally well behaved

people started being bitter and horrible to

others only because the prez did it.

I listened to martinpuke spew his mouth at lunch for 4 years before he went mia. I think that counts as verbal abuse. I lived in fear of not being a lunch time topic.

Most have heard the story about the time the corpes witch grabbed me by the leg and yanked me outta bed n dumped me on the floor.

It was 8 am and i hadn`t done the vaccuming.

How dare I not take care of my househould resposnsibility in the way home?...No... having worked till 4 am was NOT an acceptable excuse.

Then to be screamed at manically that I was posessed....because I told her to leave me the he-- alone.

She followed me around the house screaming the whole time I packed my things...her poor 6 year old was terrified

I remember when the lc came in my bed room in another way home and started roaring at the top of his lungs because I had a parakeet or two.

How DARE I have pets when I was app corpes? I explained that they weren`t mine...that I worked at a pet store and that they were injured and needed a quiet place to recover...oops BIG mistake...never contradict a lc when they wanna indulge in a tirade.....lol

What???? I STILL had horses??? oh my GAWD!!! How evil....my heart certainly wasn`t corpes if I had all of these *distractions*....now never mind the fact that I was the ONLY one meeting new people THROUGH these activities...and getting them involved...however, I suppose that because they weren`t football or fishing (the lc`s activities of choice) they were evil and so was I for allowing them to distract me from my spiritual *duty*

By the time he was done with his screaming tirade...I was so terrified that I humbly swore I would clean my act up... and then promptly rid my life of all those evil influinces...my poor animals...

So no, no physical assaults, just emotional.......however,

I`d sure like to meet some of these a holes today that I tried so desperatly to please...lol

E* H*ny was a guy who loaned his wife to Martindale and he admitted it in public, to my absolute shock. That was bad enough. To learn he whacked people in the head in the Corps really gets my blood boiling. I never liked the guy due to his elitist and pompous attitude to begin with. He never hurt me personally, but I really don't want him in my neighborhood just for the mere temptation of going over for a visit. I'm glad most people don't know who he is.

M&A

Get out! E.H. actually admitted it in public? Unbelievable. I spent about two years at Gunnison and I felt from day 1 that he was a jacka$$. You're right, he was pompous. I think he suffers from a Napoleon complex.

I can't say I ever suffered physical abuse, other than being grabbed by the arms a couple times. I was verbally assaulted more than I care to admit. Looking back I should have told them where to stick it.

M&A,

Ha! That confirms a long-held suspicion of mine.

I always thought that the only reason E.H. made it to the top of the leadership pig-pile was because his wife was a looker (with a nice rack IIRC) and LoyBoy wanted a whack at her.

Gawd, can it get ANY more perverse?

When hubby and I decided to leave twi we were accused of being

possesed becase our 16 year old son ran away. They said we were

bad parents and wanted us to tell them our "sins" hubby recalled

a few, but nothing serious (he's a saint in my book) I got more

sins than he does but I refuse to confess, that went over like

a lead ballon and soon they started screaming obsenities at us

and pounded on our table. Then they sent us to our room and

called our assistant twig leaders to come over. When they got

here they were told to take over our twig cuz we had to start

all over from PFAL and take every class as tho we were new babes

We could here them laughing in our dining room, then when they

sent them home we were called back in, and they wanted me to

leave my hubby so I wouldn't get contaminated by his devil

spurts. I said no way hosay. We are leaving. So get out of our

house. they left but not without telling us we were damned

because even our son couldn't stand us. The next day my hubby

went to sons school and gave out flyers for $100.00 for info

on our sons whereabouts. Within the hour we got a call telling

us were he was, so hubby went and got him home and he told us

that he ran away because branch co. was abusing him alot along

with some other boys and they didn't think we would beleive him

We told him thay we left twi and boy was he blessed, he came

home and didn't leave til he was ready to make it on his own

and he is doing geat now. The kicker is that when we left so

did out twig except the couple that took our twig only they had

no one left to lead,lol. I waw beside myself with joy by gettin

out of that miserable excuse for a ministry. We have been

blessed by God ever since and have abundantly prospered in the

money category better than when we were in twi and we still

tithe to this day although not to them. I thank God for getting

us out of there. NO MORE ABUSE FROM THEM. thier initials are

NL and BN can anyone guess who they are?

Sunny dear, if you were grabbed by your arms then you WERE

DEFINATELY ABUSED PHSICALLY. I'm so sorry for all of us that

took the abuse thinking we must have deserved it, but no one

deserved abuse of any kind. What happened to the love of God.

Although I don't remember it happening to me, there were some psycho parents with wooden spoons that would spank anyone's kids at any time and leave bruises on them. I'm not against spanking when it's really necessary, but some of these people were very abusive and would spank kids for so much as having their shoe fall off in a fellowship. There were some TWI parents who were the most vicious people towards their kids that I've ever seen.

As far as verbal abuse goes, I'd think that anyone in TWI long enough would put up with it at some point. I had a HFC threaten to shoot me at one point if I dated a girl outside of TWI (with this guy, it was hard to tell if he was joking or not.)

I hated the wooden spoon, and I don't beleive in hitting my children or anyone else's. I got into a lot of trouble for not

using the spoon, but there are other ways of correcting a child.

Time out is one, a sharp no is another and I could go on and on but putor is acting up. HHHHHHmmmmmmm maybe I should use a wooden spoon on putor.lol

I also told anyone watching my kids in childrens fellowshio not to use the spoon or my kids would tell me and there would be

hell to pay.

I recall an after-meeting meeting at an Advance, where a top rev was discussing some behavior by a Corps member that the leaders of the area didn't approve of. (don't remember who or what)

The rev said something like "When I was in residence and we had a problem like that, we'd take the guy into a room and a bunch of us would beat the crap out of him."

I couldn't believe my ears.

Once at Corps Week, Dr W said, "There are fifth columnists among us. If you find one, you take a knife and cut off her breast if she's female and his balls (I think it was balls) if they're male.

I was sitting there taking notes, and then I thought "Wait a minute, I'm taking notes on this?!" It was weird.

Both times it was weird, hearing people say that stuff. But did I question it? Not much. I was too fogged out.
