How Dare You, Stephen Flurry

I was just thinking again about Stephen Flurry's first UCG crisis related polemic, Making Sense of the Church Split: Judge By the Fruits, which I have discussed previously.

His complaints are so thin skinned and hypocritical.

Stephen Flurry complains that some nameless UCG minister neglected to mention PCG as a possible choice for those leaving WCG.

Stephen Flurry complains that the other COGs remained neutral during PCG's court case with WCG.

(Never mind that most of HWA's major writings were freely available over the Internet in unofficial COG websites throughout most, if not the entire, time the court case proceeded.)

Meanwhile the victims of PCG can complain that their families and their relations with loved ones have been destroyed due to PCG's (Gerald Flurry's, Stephen Flurry's, Joel Hilliker's, Ron Fraser's) policy of forbidding PCG members from making any contact with "Laodiceans".

Recently ESN has published a letter from one who suffers from this No Contact policy.
My brother is one of Flurry's sheep and has not had anything to do with me or our father for the past 4 years. Without calling or letting us know he was coming to the funeral, which we assumed he wasn't, it made a stressful and mournful situation even more so. My question to you other Flurryites that I know visit this site is: Why come to a man's funeral service when you have not visited him in his lengthy illness and made the illness worse by the grief of losing a son? How can this possibly be a "light" to anyone involved or make anyone think? (January 8 letter.)
This is Stephen Flurry's policy.

The victims of PCG can complain that PCG's teaching are causing people to die, because of their negative attitude towards healing by medicine. (How is healing by medicine any different from eating only clean meats? Are you not also hoping the avoidance of unclean meats will make you more healthy? Then what is wrong with medicine?)

This wicked doctrine ultimately comes from the Rutherford era Jehovah's Witnesses who from 1921 - 1953 forbade followers from using vaccines.

While PCG are doing all of these terrible things Stephen Flurry chooses to whine that some nameless UCG minister fifteen years ago did not mention PCG as a possible choice for those leaving WCG.

These are your policies, Stephen Flurry.

How dare you choose to whine about these small slights when you do all these terrible things.

When you tell members they cannot contact "Laodiceans" (and then blame it on God! Besmirching His name.)

When you tell members, or even imply, that healing by medicine is somehow wrong, imitating Rutherford era Jehovah's Witnesses.

When you throw your followers' precious money away to build some $20 million white elephant during this Great Recession. Do they have health insurance.

When you use a book (Malachi's Message) that was viciously plagiarized from Jules Dervaes' Letter to Laodicea. When Jules Dervaes received Malachi's Message through unsolicited mail he knew immediately that the book was merely a rip off of his writings.

And you choose to whine over how one UCG minister did not mention your sect fifteen years ago.

How dare you, Stephen Flurry.

How dare you.


  1. Well said.
    As i have written on my blog - Armstrongism The Ultimate Guide - - giving credit is not part of the Flurry mindset.
    I originally helped the regional director, Ron Fraser, to see the points about fair use, copyright and how to make claims that the WCG had abandoned the copyright by talking against the writings of Herbie.
    No thanks was ever expressed. Later I learnef that Don Tiger had been caughr in a dilemma with Gerry because he wanted ownership rather than free dissemination. Don Tiger chose other sources for spreading these materials and is the probable source, either directly or indirectly, for most of the versions available online.
    Thanks for an inspiring focus on the double standards of the Flurryites... :-)
