Graeme Wilson at leading Cult Apologist Seminar in London, UK Graeme Wilson, the UK PR chief for the Church of Scientology is speaking at a seminar on Saturday, 23 May 2009 (9.30am - 4.30pm) at the New Theatre, London School of Economics & Political Science, London, UK. His topic, "Isolation or Community (and shades in between)". Strange as it may seem, organizer INFORM are a UK government sponsored cult watch organization run by Professor Eileen Barker, a notorious cult apologist who, despite receiving government funding, is broadly criticized for her close associations with many such groups. She has defended them in court and worked to help them establish credibility rather than helping or protecting cult victims, their family and friends, as one confidential memorandum leaked is said to establish, see here. In this latest seminar, she is giving Scientologists the stage, along with cults such as the Brahma Kumaris, as an "Intentional Community" and speaking herself on the wonders of "Community Living". The programme, very nicely balanced with some otherwise benign characters, is here. Neville Hodgkinson, is a long term adherent and leading PR advisor to the Brahma Kumaris is speaking on, "Henpecked to Heaven? My 15 years in a Woman-led Retreat Centre". Until recently, INFORM's information sheet about the Brahma Kumari read as if it was written by the BKWSU own PR team. Barker also has a close relationship with the BKWSU putting off individuals exiting the religion or family seeking help. The Brahma Kumaris polished PR front has recently started to crack with ex-follower websites such as bkwsuwatch.com exposing their secret teachings and abuses and ex-follower discussion forums such as brahmakumaris.info going into far more detail. It is interesting to see the Brahma Kumaris and Scientologists finally meeting, the feminine and the masculine faces of deceit and abuse. The Brahma Kumaris are a mediumistic End of the World cult who believe a spirit entity entered into their millionaire founder and started to speak through him. This spirit entity being, of course, the God of all Religions. This spirit entities which they named "BapDada", speaking through the movement mediums, told the Brahma Kumaris that the world was to be destroyed by nuclear holocaust, and they were to inspire or "give courage" to the scientists to do so, making false predictions during WWII, 1950, 1976, mid-1980, Year 2000 and so on. Further more that this "Destruction" happened every 5,000 Years and that time repeated itself identically ever 5,000 year in a Cycle and that all other religions must come to the Brahma Kumaris in order to learn spirituality in order to start their religions, such as Scientology, in the next Cycle. Of course, the 'End of the World' has not stopped the Brahma Kumaris from amassing many millions of dollars of land and property, encouraging their followers to donate their family property, jewelry, parents to hand over the dowries of young girls and so on. The rewards are not for this life but a high status in the future Golden Age on Earth in which the BK leaderships will be royalty, the Emperors of the world. If you think Scientology is expensive or demanding, these people want the lot; "mind, body and wealth" and the daily routine starts at 4 am each day and every day, no holidays until "Destruction". In the eyes of the BKs, all other religions are "the Path of Ignorance", "stumbling around in darkness" from which there is no benefit. All other religious founders such as Christ, Buddha, Mohammed and L. Ron Hubbard have had to reincarnate and must come back to them to learn how to run their religious in the future. Only they are the true religion. Only through them does God speak to humanity. Strange bedfellows ... perhaps BapDada and Xenu are related? Wogs in SciSpeak are Shudra (untouchables) in BKSpeak. Thetans are Atmas. You have the same history of broken families going back 70s, the same 'soft sell' through a variety of courses befor you get to the true agenda, a history of suicides internationally - the most recent this year in the UK (RIP Esther Lung) ... most recently a pattern of beatings of ex-members in reform groups, and the cover up of child sexual abuses happening at their headquarters (the only place "pure" enough for God to incarnate on earth). The leadership have been outed for re-writing their personal and organizational history and the mediumistic teachings said to be from "God's" which they keep locked behind security encrypted servers and restrict non-members and even members access to. The strangest thing is, despite this all, the BKWSU is in cahoots with United Nations ... The seminar does cost to get into but given Scientology's recent response to the seminar run by FAIR, perhaps some creative strategies are called for.
