The Rt Hon. Lord Justice Alan Ward: Children of God
Page in progress
“These people are publicly paid servants assigned with the task of administering justice on behalf of the public. Please do not subscribe to their own publicity that they are some kind of gods.” - COLIN PETERS, May 06, 2011 00:29:44
Justice Lord Alan Ward – ‘Children Of God’, in this case the justice sets a damning precedent. I may add the dubbing of the justice as ‘Children of God’ is nothing to do with saving the lives of children, but is media spin, created by a judge and promoted by the media.
The Family International
The Family International (TFI), formed as the Children of God (COG) and later named Family of Love and the Family, is a cult, started in 1968 in Huntington Beach, California, United States. It began in the late 1960s, with many of its early converts drawn from the hippie movement. The Children of God was among the movements prompting the cult controversy of the 1970s and 1980s in the United States and Europe and triggered the first organized anticult group FREECOG.
Editor’s note: After receiving a copy of the original 295-page Judgment, xFamily.org editors have determined that the Judgment text archived on xFamily.org and other sites was edited to remove the full legal names of certain individuals (including Jeremy Spencer, Paul Peloquin, Michael Gilligan and Dawn Gilligan) whom Lord Justice Ward identified by full name in the Judgment itself. It also appears that other minor changes were made resulting in some text and formatting that does not match the original. The xFamily.org editors did not make these changes and only became aware of them in early October 2007. As time permits and to the extent possible, xFamily.org editors intend to correct this and restore the text so that it matches the original.
“Mr. Ward ruled that The Family, including its top leadership, had engaged in abusive sexual practices involving minors, as well as severe corporal punishment and sequestration of children. However, in a last minute turnaround, he said The Family had abandoned these practices and that they were an acceptably safe environment for children.”
