Its interesting to analyze when a sect member tries to do an attack on someone who has the "nerve" to think critically about their sect, and not worship them mindlessly. Its an interesting object lesson. They feel they have the skills to play mind games with people, and try to put them off-balance. So lets have a look at what they tried here.
First off, they will open with some type of personal attack or comment, which has no relation to the facts. Like saying you are having a "stroke", or whatever. Personally, I am calm as a spiritual butterfly. Its the attacks and obvious BS coming from the RW members in this thread that brought me into this.
Then, they try to DEFLECT blame from the "John Zemanek" personal attacks on someone else. Whoever was posting as Zemanek did some strong personal attacks against those who dared to criticize the RW. Its all there in the text. No debate there.
Then, they try to DISTORT reality, by saying how beautiful the 'cult compound' is. I never said it was a "cult compound"...whoops...Freudian slip in your part?
By the way, did you know that sometimes the most "beautiful" places have the ugliest skeletons in the closet, as they try to cover up their internal ugliness with a facade?
Michael can borrow that aphorism if he likes, help yourself Mike! (you gotta know he's reading this, if not posting here...)
And if you think this thread is such good advertising for Royal Way...then why are the RW folks going nuts about it, and have tried to have it removed? Why would a RW Member say a deliberate falsehood that this thread and pics are good advertising?
Royal Way wants to remain "secret" as that makes them seem more "occult" to their members. Its an old technique from the Middle Ages, Mike knows all about that.
Also, I obviously have no "envy" of King Michael, he sounds like a typical scammer type guy to me who doesn't like working for a living! That is another cultish technique, accusing those "dangerous outsiders" of Envy. And when I say "King", Michael knows what I mean, mythologically...right?
Then they try to do more DEFLECTION to criticize you more, and attack you personally. What does that have to do with RW? Its off-topic. I have criticized several sects, and persons, all in different ways. I did point out that David Allen belonged to MSIA, but that is not being a troll, that is a FACT, which David Allen and MSIA have hidden. Of course a few MSIA employees would be upset by that fact getting out!
Just like Royal Way is freaking out as the facts they are trying to keep hidden are leaking out.
But from what we can see so far, Royal Way MIGHT not be quite as overtly nasty as Landmark, but maybe more Greedy. Certainly more secretive and paranoid. We'll see, as more and more complaints come out about Royal Way, then more details will emerge.
Then he goes on to say that I said things I did not say.
I did not say "Rabbis are licensed". And Michael Gottlieb is a THERAPIST with an DELINQUENT license. That is what he has done for a living for 30 years, that is a FACT, and that is reality.
I don't believe that Michael is a qualified "spiritual teacher" because he has no credentials or experience anyone will talk about, and he has no endorsements, affiliations, no code of ethics, no nothing!
Lets see some FACTS, and not empty words. Talk is cheap, show us the facts.
Lastly, they try more personal attacks by calling me a "coward" trying to make a name for myself? Nice try, yawn.
I think the only real cowards are people who try to hide all of the information about their non-profit church.
So anyway, you can see the lame attempt at sect mind games 101 that some folks from these LGAT religious sects are weaned on. Sadly, that stuff works on many people. It does not work on people with critical thinking skills.
Notice that the entire post was basically a DEFLECTION, DISTORTION, and personal attack?
They do this to try to draw you away from the FACTS at hand.
They try to attack the messenger, and then deflect as far from the facts as possible.
Well nice try, you failed. And hopefully if all they can post are personal attacks on members of this forum, then those posts will be moved out of this thread, as its not relevant to the thread. Start another thread to do personal attacks on people, but keep this thread ON-TOPIC.
Its about Royal Way.
If Royal Way can show us their financials, and they check out, then fine. But its not looking good right now.
Royal Way [b:43d2e8f0f0]completely fails every single criteria for objectively analyzing a healthy religious non-profit.[/b:43d2e8f0f0]
[b:43d2e8f0f0]They break EVERY SINGLE POINT in the above code of conduct.[/b:43d2e8f0f0]
Their most flagrant abuses of the code of ethics, are when you ask then for their financials, they get hostile, defensive, aggressive, and refuse to ever submit them. That is as bad of a warning sign as you will ever get.
People need to stay far away from Royal Way.
The posts from the senior RW members in this thread, are quite disturbing.
Any decent and moral organization would respond in exactly the opposite way. They would release financial information, credentials, references, and show people what was going on.
But RW does the exact opposite.
They get hostile, aggressive, attack, hide information, distort, deflect, and refuse to [b:43d2e8f0f0]ever [/b:43d2e8f0f0]divulge any information.
That is sicko stuff.
Well, perhaps since the IRS is cracking down on the religious non-profits these days, we might find out the facts sooner than later.
First of all, calm down before you give yourself a stroke, ranting and raving the way you are. ... Most of our posts responding to the attacks are not even close to hostile. John Zemanek replied in kind to Eric.
You posted the beautiful pictures of the Ranch to show how rich we are. What you did in point is show how beautiful the Ranch is and that it is nothing like a cult compound, while giving us free advertising.
He used to be a therapist. He is no longer. He has been a spiritual teacher for years, so you can stop rambling on about an expired license. And he did not say Michael was a rabbi. He corrected you. You said rabbis are licensed. They are ordained.
Lastly, you are such a coward sitting at your computer all day trying to make a name for yourself. How can you do that when you are writing anonymously?
