Subject: Article on recognizing/dealing w/manipulators

Dear freinds,

For all who have come into contact with ubf, here is a great article outlining the agendas and behaviors of manipulative people. At the ubf, I found so many manipulative people, doing so many kinds of manipulation. It was also my experience that the higher the person was in the ubf pyramid, the more manipulative that person was. The most extreme example was ubf general secretary Sam Mule Lee.

This article is posted on the rickross.com website, a virtual goldmine of information about religious groups and other dubious groups/persons.


Here is just one excerpt:

Lying -It's hard to tell when a person is lying at the time they're doing it. Fortunately, there are times when the truth will out because circumstances don't bear out somebody's story. But there are times when you don't know you've been deceived until it's too late. One way to minimize the chances that someone will put one over on you is to remember that because aggressive personalities of all types will generally stop at nothing to get what they want, you can expect them to lie and cheat. Another thing to remember is that manipulators -covert-aggressive personalities that they are -are prone to lie in subtle, covert ways. Someone was well aware of the many ways there are to lie when they suggested that court oaths charge a person to tell "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth " Manipulators often lie by withholding a significant amount of the truth from you or by distorting the truth. They are adept at being vague when you ask them direct questions. This an especially slick way of lying, omission. Keep this in mind when dealing with a suspected wolf in sheep's clothing. Always seek and obtain specific, confirmable information.

I think of Brian Karcher, his numerous lies on this website and the lies on his own website, which he claims is dedicated to Jesus Christ. Brian, you dedicated all the lies and deceptions to Jesus Christ? Shame on you Brian.
