I agree with you totally about the kids being loved and taken good care of, and think very highly of Susan McGill. However, we do not support the home, nor would I advocate a parent sending their child there (or any home) in most situations. I will say that a family member of mine who is a single mother sent her children there just before she was shipped off to prison for 3 years. Her family is poor and could not take on the extra mouths to feed, and the kids did benefit from their stay at the home.
Again, I am not bashing Victorious Valley nor am I saying they are in any way, shape, or form comparable to HH.

I think that's a bad idea. Do you really want Oprah to show the world how bad conservative Christianity is? The world doesn't know or care about the difference between the denominations, they are all the same to them. It judges Christianity by its people more than its doctrines. When Oprah's non-Christian audience sees how bad even a small group of Christians is and how they treat their own they will only brag in their own minds that they are not as bad those extremists. The only way you can have something like this shut down is to write to every one who supports their ministry and tell them what's really going on. Please think this through.

JJ is correct (as usual). This thread, again, makes the two ways of looking at the horrific abuse and coverup and adultery and . . .
IFBx'ers = Sweep it under the rug OR turn blame to the messenger (basso)
Citizens of the Kingdom = SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS
I'll take the latter group, Alex.

I doubt RW would show up on TV, but he needs to speak his piece about it all and get this all over and done with.
If there is abuse, ongoing, it needs to be stopped.
Please pray for our area as we deal with the oil spill-
