Abi Freeman to appear on channel 5 programme
The "wild-haired and snaggletoothed" former Family spokesperson Abi Freeman
will appear on a UK TV program on channel 5 tomorrow (August 21) at 7:15PM.
Professor Taylor also interviews Abi Freeman. She's a wild-haired and snaggletoothed veteran of The Family, formerly a Californian sex cult called The Children Of God.
The cult used to encourage free love in all its permutations, especially with its founder, David Berg, who died in 1994. It has been reinvented as a fundamentalist Christian organisation with 10,000 members.
Abi spends her days seeking out modern manifestations of 666, the number of the beast from the Bible's Book of Revelations. She thinks the trend for microchips on bank cards and even having them implanted under your skin is 666, "the mark of Satan".
When the day comes that we all have our bank details implanted in our arms, we will have "embraced the Anti-Christ". Then pestilence, war, famine and death, aka the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, will rule until the second coming of Christ, the battle of Armageddon and the creation of a new Heaven and Earth.
Sixtysomething Abi is looking forward to it all and says: "I would like to think Christ will come in my lifetime."
As Professor Taylor says: "Again, she seemed completely rational and reasonable until it seemed one part of her brain clicked in and out came all this ludicrous nonsense, confusing technology and the Old Testament."
A Very British Apocalypse, tomorrow, 7.15pm, Channel 5.
