To whom it may concern:
There is no reason for anyone on this message board to be concerned about not replying to internal messaging, which is the choice of each member, that is to reply or not to reply.
Don't worry about it.
It means nothing one way or the other.
And those who personally attack members that post here will be banned from this message board.
Meade Ministries does have a history of bad behavior and at times this has included making implied threats, such as those recently recorded through an A&E cable program titled "Mind Control," which filmed Meade's "security" team carrying on around his barbed wire enclosed gated church.
But nothing happened.
Just a lot of hot air, bluster and ridiculous posturing.
Meade and his men have not violently assaulted anyone, nor sued anyone that I am aware of in recent years. Their bark is worse than the bite, when it comes to the threats they make.
Meade seems to rely upon manufacturing unreasonable fears as a means of manipulation.
There are considerable assets at stake within the Meade empire, and my guess is that the Meade and his men don't want to risk those assets by acting out stupidly.
Anyone posting here can do so safely and anonymously without any concern that their identity might be revealed.
But if you want to remain anonymous be careful not to disclose personal details that might tend to identify you and also you should be careful about replying to private messaging received from other members of this board.
Don't allow anyone to intimidate you.
The Ross Institute (sponsor of this message board) was sued by Landmark Education for $1 million dollars in an effort to disclose the identities of members of this message board.
But Landmark's lawsuit failed utterly and ended up becoming a humiliating defeat. The company never received any information whatsoever about members of this board. A federal judge refused to allow that throughout the proceeding.
Landmark Education makes Meade's operation look like a cheap sideshow. They are a much bigger outfit, with far more substantial resources.
The Ross Institute includes a subsection about Meade Ministries within its archives.
In my opinion Meade Ministries is a destructive cult and Charles Meade little more than a ruthless con man, who has hurt many people, devastated families and whose influence has caused needless deaths, including helpless children.
I have spoken with Meade victims, and I have visited Lake City personally.
It is a good thing that people are speaking out here.
There are many things that need to be said and Meade should be held accountable for the long history of harm he has done.
