already you must have certainly discovered that being "excommunicated" from lw hoppycock due to your "failings" was a blessing and one that has liberated you. and your voice and testament adds to the crescendo of the many "merries", particularly of those new voices added to those that have fought this fight for years. each voice, each testament, from a myriad of experiences, attest to the greater truth, complete humility and a sincere adherence to the most principled tenets of the christian faith. i posit that gary hargrave and his remaining minions, despite his books (which, i profess have never read a word of) and his apparent ascension (via marilyn) to the pinnacle of lw hierarchy either have no clue of central christian tenets or he/they could give not a care (i'm trying to be "good" and not resort to my sometimes potty-mouth characterizations); i am inclined to believe the latter is the more likely. i am supremely glad that i left the walk prior to the jr/bickhart separation and even more glad that i never had a moment to endure or embrace the marilyn/gary ruse/juggernaut that many of you did. for me, that was so long ago history but for many of you, it was not so long ago.
i do so puzzle, why i have vested myself in this conversation and i think typer informed me, his anew voice (and i believe, per his example, there are others waiting in the wings) is speaking to those current lw congregants who read these posts; changedagain, little red flag, onion, nancyb, kboy and a host of others have been at this task for a long time. why do they do this - is their ultimate goal to have hargrave tied to a stake and burned, figuratively, and confess his sins? well, that certainly will not occur and i imagine that is not their aim. gary hargrave is a professing christian; a practicing christian, by what frigging measure? steal from the less rich to add to your material coffers, build a mansion on the backs of tithes from the common, hide the sexual transgressions of a son-in-law because you failed to have balls (oops, i was not supposed to be a pottymoth in this transmission) to stand up to marilyn's (----y).
i wonder if the greater issue is no longer about hargrave, his trophy wife (what a moral loser - her ex-husband should have full legal care of his child) and escape to brazil, non extradition. i say screw hargrave, he will walk away most likely. what does remain is the future of present lw churches and congregants. i have stated this before and do so again. congregants, claim your church/es. dissolve yourselves from lw association and if you get resistance from "leaders" do have the courage tell them "i am a christian not a hargrave". it may seem small but i can assure you all this story is headed to be on "sixty minutes" or john oliver, that is my next step. too bad hargrave is not catholic, otherwise, he would die in the confession booth.
shine on, all you merries, old and new
