They were there a long time. I met they both in 1989 and 1990 in Island Pond before "the pond emptied out" and members were sent out to more new locations around the country. You want to talk about fruit?...Look at Yoneq Spriggs who has repeatedly condemned all of Christianity and the clergy/laity system. Yoneq is the Pope of the Twelve Tribes. Gene and Marsha are the unquestioned unquestionable king and queen of the Twelve Tribes. And Marsha never received any discipline for her adulterous affair which she lied about and current members either deny or say was exaggerated. yeah right...Other members have been sent away for 7 years for the same thing. Not her highness though. Elbert and Marsha are untouchable, uncorrectable, unrebukable, undisciplined.

Interesting news article concerning the Sus House (castle) and controversy in France with the Twelve Tribes.

Place a checkmark beside all items that characterize the group in question. If you check many of these items, and particularly if you check most of them, you might consider examining the group more closely.

The above check list comes from Dr. Michael Langone, editor of Cultic Studies Journal, and often characterize manipulative groups. Dr. Langone suggest prospective recruits and family members compare these statements to the group. If one or more of these apply to your group you may have a cause for concern. I say, if all apply as in the case of the Twelve Tribes, you should repent (turn 180 degrees) and run.

Ok - This one is a little angry, but therapeutic just the same
