This subject or problem is not limited to WL or the LC.

Thanks for sharing this, Hope. In many ways this explains a lot. I knew he spoke like this in public and assumed he did in private, but I don't think I have ever heard this clearly stated before by someone who heard him.

I have been in on the picking-up-the-pieces end of the lives of ex-LC sisters and their families for a number of years now, including my own . I agree with you that this is not only an LC problem, but a much broader one among Christians in general.
