Have you just been reading the message boards? Or have you been on to the main site where the actual articles are?

The main site is located at:

http://www.xfamily.org

There is an article here that explains the purpose of the website.

As is stated in the article Indian Joe linked to above, xFamily.org is a reference resource.

A reference resource of this sort can be of help to a variety of people for a variety of reasons. There is no official agenda behind this site, other than to exhaustively document information about The Family International cult objectively. Everyone here may have their own reasons for involvement, but xFamily's editors are required to reconcile any of their own objectives with the site's mission statement. I am personally involved because I am a fan of information.

purpose of this site
Its true , ome ppl really thrive on GOSSIP. Cos I see no reason to post things on any site just for information as no one person there has resolved what happend to them and jsut want to post it for "reference resource" FOR WHAT???How does it help if you or the ones posted such sites did not get help. It s a lousy site.

Ruth,
It seems you have (perhaps intentionally) completely misunderstood the purpose of xFamily.org. We are NOT judges, prosecutors, psychologist, social activists or some sort of support group for abuse survivors - we are simply collecting, archiving and publishing information about the Children of God/The Family cult.

Our mission is not to "resolve" problems or get help for anyone. It is simply to " to exhaustively document information about The Family/Children of God objectively." Nothing more and nothing less.

Your message seems to suggest that we should delay our project until every abuse survivor has gotten help, obtained justice or some type of final resolution. That is clearly absurd. Our great-great-grandchildren would probably be long dead by the time someone like you decided it was the right time to begin. If other individuals and organizations that collect, archive and publish information were to adopt your approach, there would be no history.

If historians, journalists, librarians, and other professionals adopted your approach there would be virtually no sources of information still available by the time their distant descendants began the work you think should be delayed until everything is resolved, victims get help, justice, etc.

keep posting your articles if it helps you although I dont see how. What when there are no more articles to collect from supposedly kids cos kids dont remain kids forever. Are you going to create them. there is a purpose in life. Do you have one?


Oh yeah, I had some cookies and fruit for snack just now and will go jogging later and watch a movietonight. Just posting this for infomation sake.

Your are neither a historian,journalist or librarian ,

I guess you missed the part where I said I'm not here to help anyone.

That makes absolutely no sense. No one here is collecting articles from "supposedly kids" (whatever the hell that means) and I don't see how the Church of Satan (cos) is relevant to whatever you are trying (but absolutely failing) to communicate.

Food consumption, exercise and entertainment viewing are human activities that many professionals are keenly interested in documenting. While no here cares about your specific activities in the early part of the 21st century, information about these activities is being collected by millions of people all over the world.

Actually, while I don't work professionally in those fields, I do have degrees in history and journalism and I did take a couple courses at a school specializing in library and information science.

Because this information is either not available through any other source, or the disparate bits of information that form an understanding of the whole have never been collectively posted.

It is wonderful that this place is here.

There are millions of websites on the internet..more than that even.

Some are wonderful, some are not..though it is really a matter of opinion.

Something else that is wonderful is that if you do not like a website, you can just not visit it again. That is what I do.

Peace to you all, and God Bless.
