Religious shunning bars association with people who have been labeled as apostates, whistleblowers, dissidents or anyone the religion perceives as a threat or source of conflict. Rob Robertson’s guest, Janette, has experienced shunning and will discuss this practice and the damage that it can do. After twenty years of involvement in Scientology, she and her husband concluded that the organization was a sham. They left … and were ostracized by the entire Clearwater, Florida Scientology Community. They lost their jobs, friends and even contact with some of their family members. ”It was a very public witch hunt against us,” Janette says. Since then, Janette and her husband met many people from various religious backgrounds, all with similar stories of shunning and corruption. Janette created a website called Truth Rundown to expose the abuses and corruption going on in not only Scientology, but in several religious organizations and cults such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints (FLDS). Please visit GodDiscussion.net for more information and links. ~~~ World Cult Watch, a weekly program that airs every Sunday night, is intended to not only offer news and information about cults, but to provide a forum where cult survivors — and those wanting to leave — have a chance to talk and receive emotional support. Rob runs the “World Cult Watch” website.
The religious right is promoting an anti-science, historical revisionist and Biblical literature agenda in the home schools, Christian private schools and public schools. Joining us to share what is happening is an extraordinary panel of experts, including:
Nationally-recognized researcher, public speaker and writer RACHEL TABACHNICK, an expert on public education and the religious right, who has provided research for both Democratic and Republican candidates; BRUCE WILSON, co-founder of Talk2Action.org, whose research on the religious right and New Apostolic Reformation movement caused former GOP presidential candidate John McCain to reject his long-sought political endorsement from influential Christian evangelist, Texas megachurch pastor and Christians United For Israel founder John Hagee. CHRIS RODDA, a leading authority on the religious right’s revision of history, author of Liars For Jesus, a series of books debunking David Barton’s Jefferson Lies, and senior researcher with the Military Religious Freedom Foundation; Homeschooling Anonymous’ founder, RYAN STOLLAR, whose work on exposing the abuses of Christian fundamentalism in home schools was reported by Michelle Goldberg for The Daily Beast; and CHERIE McGINN, retired teacher with 34 years of teaching at three of the top high schools in the nation. Cherie’s specialty was AP European History and Comparative Religions.

When a federal judge ruled on July 29 that the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Milwaukee’s free expression of religion and religious liberty would be violated if it was required to tap into its $57 million trust for the perpetual care of cemeteries to pay creditors who are mostly victims of abuse, many observers were shocked. Joining us to talk about the case are Peter Isely, Founding Member and Midwest Director of SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests) and Judy Jones, Midwest Associate Director of SNAP.
This is an important case that may play a role in future bankruptcy filings by religious institutions, particularly since the creditor victims allege that $57 million was moved on purpose to a cemetery trust to avoid compensating them (see GodDiscussion.net for the timeline).
Peter Isely was sexually assaulted as a youngster by a Roman Catholic priest in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. A graduate of Harvard Divinity School, he is a psychotherapist in private practice who directed the nation’s only inpatient treatment program for clergy sexual abuse trauma. He is a founding member and long time Midwest Director of SNAP, and has been recognized by numerous organizations for his work.
Judy Jones is SNAP’s Midwest Associate Director. Judy was born and raised in the Catholic Church, which played a central role in her life – but today, she is no longer Catholic. That’s because about 20 years ago, she learned that her brother and several other relatives had been abused by a priest of her local church. In 2010, SNAP honored her at its Chicago conference for her accomplishments in helping victims of church abuse.
For so long, you've been taught to act the part of your belief system rather than how to be the part. Religious games cause more hurt and frustration than almost anything else. But today, we're going to end the religious ideals that has led to more bondage, less freedom, less joy and less peace. It's time to find the strait path.
Earlier this year, Lori Hodgson joined Colleen Sau Tez' panel of brave women dubbed “The X-Women” to share her disturbing story about Scientology on another God Discussion show. Lori has directly experienced the nightmare of what Scientology does to families. In the original broadcast, Lori shared the fact that her son, daughter, and ex-husband were still active members who decided to follow Scientology policy by “disconnecting” from her . Lori joined Scientology in 1976 when she was 13. Having virtually grown up in one of the world’s most secretive organizations, she eventually left her staff position and continued as a parishioner, known as a “public.”
Lori will join Rob Robinson in World Cult Watch with updates to her story. Declared a suppressive person (excommunicated) by the “church,” she is still shunned by her children. In the past three years, she has only been allowed to see her son twice, and her daughter once. Lori has been battling the “church” to reclaim her right to see her kids.
World Cult Watch, a weekly program that airs every Sunday night. Host Rob Robinson runs the “World Cult Watch” website, offering insight and a forumt for ex-cult members struggling with the guilt, grief, anger and other emotions associated with spiritual abuse.
