Abuse by any other name....

I agree hurrikayne, and Che knows too, abuse does not have to be physical to be abuse.  I like you best when you are drinking girl! LOL

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.


I've always thought that emotional abuse was far more damaging than physical myself. At least that was the way it felt for me when I was a young sprout.

The funniest most dumbest quote (from the first link on Anchor

"There is absolutely no way to fall through the cracks with ACE," McElwrath said."

Now check these out from the last link for a real hoot

1. Don’t discipline him properly according to scriptural principles. Just believe the lie that spanking is old fashioned. He that spareth his rod hateth his son Proverbs 13:24

10. Let him listen to rock 'n' roll, rap, or alternative music. This kind of music will destroy his life faster than anything else! Be not deceived, evil communications corrupt good manners. 1 Corinthians 15:33

14. Send your child to public school so he can be taught evolution, sex education,and humanism.
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. 1 Corinthians 3:19

Yes, I saw that guy's page on "How to raise a rebellious teenager".  It made me sooooooo angry.  Ugh.  Might want to teach them to never use fire either.  Fire causes destruction and should be avoided at all costs.  (Nevermind that it can warm your food or your home.  Let's just focus on one aspect, the negative aspect at that.)

Yeah, Always Focus on the Negative
« Reply #65 on: December 16, 2007, 07:35:55 PM »
Always focus on the negative that will surely create a positive force for good. Not!  Violence promotes more violence, everyone knows that, yet they keep insisting that if you love your children you will hit them.  Backwards doesn't even begin to describe these people.

Well, you know, I've tried really hard to teach that teenager of mine a core base of values and how did she repay me this evening?  TORTURE...she put me through 20 minutes of hard core TAE BO.  OMG, I thought I was gonna die.  That's it, I'm taking her Christmas presents back.

WWASPS
« Reply #72 on: January 02, 2008, 03:00:14 AM »
Yeah Che, it is, I told you there were connections.  Mike Palmer started out on the Roloff compound in Corpus, then moved on to start his own facilities.  Casa by the sea was only one of them.  The Palmer facilities are part Roloff, part WWASPS, and maybe even part Straight.  I am still digging, this is one of the few connections I have found so far.

May be, these places love to play the name game.  I research as much as I can, but I am unable to dig up a lot of the info because they are really good at covering their tracks.  I am only adding names to the list as I come to them in hopes of connecting the dots and finding other survivors.  If anyone from any teen facility needs to talk and is looking for a support group they are always welcome in mine.  http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/He ... ePrograms/
