The Price of a Scholar? Gordon Melton and the FCF

The Family Care Foundation's 2000 financial report has an interesting item listed on it.

Gordon Melton (a long time apologist for the group) received a donation for his

"International Religions Directory Project" in the amount of $10,065.83 from
Family Care Foundation, a charity founded by Family leaders.

You can find the link to the FCF 2000 financial document here (PDF

document, the item listing the donation to Melton is on page 38)

It's great to see this, but we are not the folks that need to see this, how do we show this to those still in the Family, who has no idea we're paying Gordon Melton for his favorable comments?

Jesus Jules! Where the hell do you find all this good stuff? LOL. Good work.

That explains a lot though. I did meet Gordon Melton a few times and even did an “interview” with him once. I must say that I was very impressed with him and he seems to have a good knowledge of what was going on. So I guess these contributions to his organization were the primary reason for his favorable articles to us???

Money makes the world go around!

The credit for this one goes to Anthony. He found this in the FCF's 990 form for 2000.(reply to this comment

So much for our secret weapon.

For our weapons are not those of conventional warfare but of information and surprise.

Thanks for the link Jules---It just goes to show that TF is learning to play in the league with the big boys and becoming more savay---of course they still have to learn to cover their tracks better. I'll make sure to pass this on to all TF's I know who tout his work as objective.

Wow, it used to be only 30 pieces of silver. It's gone up. Damn economy!

My only question is does that figure include sexual favors or were they donated?

read my mind Nan, I was thinking 10 grand was pretty cheap if you don't consider the free teenage tail and provisioned vegetables they've also been giving him.(reply to this comment

Since the subject is out, I want to know more about the "tail", whether or not it was teenage, I want to find out if anyone knows for sure that he was getting some from family women. I did live in a home where he was a frequent visitor and I do have my suspicions, however, I cannot make an accusation without 100% proof. If it's true that he was having sex with COG women, it would prove, contrary to their claims, that FFing still went on after 1987.

FFing Definitely went on after 1987, but the only situations I have knowlege of (for the record no, I cannot prove it) were limited to existing "fish" who had been accustomed to having sex with their COG mistresses in the past and may withdraw their support if said mistresses stopped putting out. In the one situation I am familiar with the details of, the girl was eventually asked to choose whether to continue having sex with this man at the expense of being barred from sex with current members or vice versa, and she chose to cut the "Fish" off so she could remain sexually active in the group. I can't remember what year this was but I think it was the same year as the Milly Vanilli scandal, definitely much later than '87.(reply to this comment

I believe that actively finding and bringing in new 'fish' was stopped in 87, but having sex with already well-established and regular 'customers' was most definitely allowed, I can think of 3 cases off the top of my head, that definitely were taking place in the 90s.(reply to this comment

John and Porceleindoll, thanks for your info. This is what I had imagined. This may come as a shock to the pea brain cult peons, but whatever the "clasification", it amounts to the same thing. They may not have been "advertising" anymore, but they sure were "selling" the...whatever, interesting.
