The Return of “w”
Update: Shadows of WCG has a post on the Myanmar non-connection.
“w” returned recently to let us know that he/she is doing well. All emphasis is mine.
Well, everyone from Weinland Watch to Ambassdor Reports has heard the last two weeks of defiant sermons. Weinland’s or one of the two evangelists e-mail to the select few that was exposed has now been altered. Followers still in Weinland’s Church will take the Chinese & Burma disasters as proof we are in the end time.
It is a broken record and never ending chain of reruns stories. Laura Weinland is not going renounce her husband or give any of the money back. This whole situation has become a bad dream that hundreds of people refuse to wake up. I have done my best to talk to people about leaving, but I am blue in the face. A few people have left and many who said they were giving Weinland till Pentecost or late July 2008 seem to be willing to go on forever. Yes, these people have been brainwashed and the church’s pull on them is stronger than granite. I my thoughts and prayers go out to those still in Ron Weinland’s clutches. I am a happier person now that I got away from this church. I guess we can all claim a partial victory that Weinland’s church is in the hundreds and not thousands by now.
I hope a few people that have woken up will be there to council those who need help. Of course, you can ‘t help anyone else until you admit Ron was wrong. I have sent personal e-mails about my experience to no avail. I only hope the stories of those who have come before and left the cog-pkg will keep new people from coming on board. The Weinlands probably were lying all this time about returning any of the extra money given above tithes, even if someone asks.
This will just be a reason to disfellowship you out of the church of Weinland. I think everyone is tired of this man’s antics and predictions that has been proved so wrong. Finally, I wanted to point out that Burma and China have had worse typhoons and earthquakes in both counties in the last 15 to 30 years and we were not in the tribulation then either.
Even one person leaving is a full victory in my opinion. But “w” is a victory in their own right, for opening their eyes and asking the hard questions, despite the fear and the indoctrination.
Never stop asking questions. Asking questions is what will set you free.
