Are the Rollof homes run on a franchise system or are they wholly owned by Lester "The Molestor" Rollof himself?

Lester himself is quite dead.  Those running homes modeled after his example are "carrying on his 'good' work."  I'm guessing the profits are winding up in individual director's bank accounts, but that IS purely speculation.

Yes Lorrie, there's no "light's out" policy here for anyone over the age of 14, thank you very much.  :P  And even if there was, I have a very cool keyboard that lights up from underneath illuminating the letters.  I don't typically look at the keys when I type, but I do when I'm drunk, and sometimes I still mess up anyway, but it is very cool.  :)

Did either of you experience any abuse from Lester himself?

Roloff Abuse
« Reply #48 on: December 03, 2007, 07:51:46 PM »
No, Roloff was dead by the time we were there, but I was abused directly by Faye Cameron who is the wife of Roloffs predocessor.  She was found guilty of abuse later, and is not allowed to ever work with juveniles in the state of Texas ever again.

I do however have friends who were physically abused by both Roloff and his wife.

I believe 5 homes have a direct relationship with the "peoples baptist church", but many others are related in a more indirect way. Workers from one home will go and start one of their own that's run in the same roloffian way. I would say the current wwasps model fits the roloff homes organizational style.

Who owns What
« Reply #52 on: December 04, 2007, 10:06:36 PM »
The original 7 homes were owned by Roloff Evangelistic Enterprises ( a not for profit organization), but then workers started getting in trouble and they would go off and start there own Roloffian shitpit.  Michael Palmer of WWASPS renoun is a former Roloff worker.  These programs seem to be inbreeding which suprises me because one is Fundamentalist Baptist and the other is predominantly Mormon, and the Baptists think the Mormons are a cult. LOL "Oh Pooottttttttttt calling Ketttttttttle!"  These people are enemies, yet maybe not, maybe child abuse trumps God.

Ok.. Out of sheer curiousity can anyone who went to a Roloff home give a clear example of how religion was used to justify child abuse to the child and parent?

 Oh, that's easy.  The Bible says to spare the rod will spoil the child, and other such scriptures that when taken out of context, warped minds can twist and use for evil intents.

Abuse disguised as Religion?
« Reply #57 on: December 06, 2007, 10:37:02 PM »
Lets see, they beat you with a wooden paddle and tell you they are doing it because God told them via scripture that they were supposed to, then they stand you up infront of the church congregation and are made to give testimony about how the dicipline/abuse they are lavishing on you is saving you from your life.  I was afraid at times they were going to save me from my life clear to death.  And at my funeral the faithful followers would have said, "lucky girl they saved her from her past."

Yeah, AMEN.

Evidently Che missed my post about lock up, the room with only a mattress and sermons getting pumped in while you whiled your days away without a shower, & few bathroom breaks.  Possibly he also missed the one about scrubbing floors on hands & knees for hours.  Have I not mentioned that the doors were locked, there were alarms on the windows?  We weren't allowed to see our families for 6 months or more.  Our phone calls were monitored, letters were monitored.  We couldn't discuss our past, couldn't watch television, read anything other than schoolowork (which was a waste of time BEFORE getting the worthless diploma, we weren't allowed to talk to anyone not in the particular program we were in.  We were isolated from society, had sermons blasted at us morning an night.  

Granted, not all of the above is physical abuse, some of it is spiritual, and some emotional...but abuse nonetheless.
