I’m starting to hear (from a few ex-MCFers in contact with current MCFers) that ‘MCF (Melbourne Christian Fellowship) is changing’.
Is that true? Is it possible?
Of course it would be wonderful if MCF was changing for the better (from their behaviour described in this blog). And of course I’ve got no idea from outside whether that’s the case or not.
But MCFers are saying:
We’re changing . .Multiple MCFers to ex-MCFers
we’re no longer ‘like that’ . . harsh . . etc
Wow, that would be great!
Maybe it’s true.
But . .
. . for true change, there must be repentance, admissions and apologies . . and restitution made.
When David Bonham, Laurie Holland and their side-kicks pay up, I’ll let you know. We are owed hundreds of thousands of dollars by those cowardly men, and ourselves owe this to banks and other organizations because of what MCF did to us over three decades.
So, being nice to MCF groupies and family members is one thing (and doubtful anyway).
If Richard Kaa Snr’s apology from the pulpit a year or so ago (that I read the transcript of) is anything to go by, their change is an utterly pathetic and meaningless change designed to suck in the poor unleavables who are married into it or want to be.
Actually admitting what you’ve done to REAL victims, and doing it publically. And making restitution, that’s another thing.
The stupid thing is there’s probably only 10 or 20 families at MCF and BCF that would actually say we desire or need monetary restitution. XCF could cover that with a couple of million bucks hopefully (since at least in my case, I’m discounting the damages by a factor of 100).
The rest would just like a public apology.
