The Church is striking back by attempting to silence Eric Navas. They have unfortunately suspended his blog:
Harassment???!! That makes no sense for several reasons:
El Camino UBF specifically the chapter director and his inner circle knew about the blog for a long time. In fact it was made in mid 2015 before Eric left UBF. Here’s evidence that the church knew about the blog:
“You have even written a blog, quite obviously showing your contempt for the ministry.” Source: http://ubfriends.net/john-chun-baik-responds-to-ubfriends-net/#more-3576
Those are a senior member’s exact words. He clearly said nothing about harassment but rather on contempt. Contempt and harassment are not the same thing. Here are the definitions for the words
Except Rothrock no current member has stated to Eric that the blog is unwanted. Jared doesn’t count for all we know it could be a troll or Rothrock in disguise. If El Camino UBF wants to take the matter to court with undisputed evidence then I recommend they do so if they themselves aren’t guilty of harassment towards Eric and others both current and ex-members.
This reveals the methodology of UBF silencing people. When an ex–member speaks out against UBF it is unfortunately considered harassment even if you use bible verses and have a solid argument.
Here’s what UBF does to silence ex-members that speak out online:
- First, they make threats to the ex-member
- If that doesn’t work then the UBF web committee is contacted to alter the internet’s algorithm
- If that doesn’t work then they contact the platformer admin 9in the case of Eric Blogger) to have the blog removed.
- If that doesn’t work then the chapter director gets a lawyer to contact the ex-member with a threat of lawsuit
This is no to scare or discourage es-members from speaking out but rather to inform you in order to prepare for what UBF throws at you.
Sorry to hear that.
I have not visited the blog so can’t comment on that.
However, I understand completely and all too well what you mean by UBF’s efforts/ methods in silencing people who speak out on their practices even if these do not align with biblical principles or normal moral standards of humanity. People include not only ex members, but families of members and anyone who speaks his/ her mind in that regards.
