Mike is reporting on the Don't Drink the Flavor Aid: False Prophet Ron Weinland blog that he received the following comment to one of his postings: Ron’s House of Cards
The following was left in a comment on the previous post.
Greetings,I don’t have verification but it seems authentic. If true, it calls Steve Dalrymple’s position in PKG into question, as he has been the Cincinnati senior elder for some time and before that one of Ron’s flunkies so if a recently promoted female senior elder is doing this …..
It is with deep regret that I have to inform everyone that Ramona Weinland, Scott and Kris Cameron have chosen to leave the Church of God – PKG and have thereby chosen to leave the fellowship of God’s people. They are disfellowshipped from God’s Church.
Sr. Elder the COG-PKG
So the list of possible but not necessarily confirmed defectors includes:
These are all long time PKG members, and include Ron’s family and senior elders in PKG. I hope this list is true, and will soon expand to include more from PKG.
- Ramona Weinland, Ron’s own mother
- Kris Cameron, Ron’s sister
- Scott Cameron, Ron’s brother in law
- Ralph Dowd, long time member
- April Combs, long time member
- Hope Henson, long time member
- Donna Kautz, long time member
- Chris Little, Ron’s son-in-law (though the legality of his marriage to Audra is in doubt considering how Ron handled their marriage certificate)
It always fascinated me on how many family members follow their "daddy" cult leaders just because they are family. The only ones who had any brains to buck that trend were Herbert Armstrong's daughters and Dave Pack's sons. After years of suffering abuse at the hand of their father, both families left.
I realize familial ties are great, even more so in Armstrongism. The problem lies in the fact that family members have seen and witnessed the inner workings of their dad/relative leaders. They know the garbage that these frauds pass off as "god inspired." They have seen the lies, the manipulation, the power issues, the mental health issues, and suffered at the hands of their dad/relatives - sometimes mentally, physically and spiritually; yet they still give loyal support.
I hope it is true that Ron’s mother and sister have left. This will certainly give more people the courage to walk away from the rotten filth that Ron spouts as “god inspired.”
