From a reader here:
March 12 of this year will be the 10th anniversary of the Brookfield shooting near Milwaukee, where LCG member Terry Ratzmann became so unhinged after hearing an LCG sermon that he went and got his gun and shot seven LCG members dead before committing suicide.
I hope some major media outlets are planning to commemorate this anniversary with coverage of the LCG cult, exposing its racism and its abuse of women and children and the elderly and vulnerable, all so Meredith and his family can live comfortably at the expense of the dumb sheep who keep sending money.
Remember, it's not the ministers who are sending in the money to perpetuate Meredith's racism, sexism, white superiority and insane biblical fundamentalism. It's the thousands of LCG members whose tithes and offerings make this possible. They are the enablers of this racist entity, and the blame finally lies at their feet.
So, I hope the major media cover the anniversary and do it with some good investigative reporting. Remember LCG spokesman John Ogwyn, who lied to the media and said LCG members like Ratzmann were allowed to seek doctors' care? That is the same John Ogwyn who died a few months later of an MRSA infection that any doctor could have easily treated, but that Ogwyn left in God's hands because of his cult's doctrines. How will LCG explain that away? Sure, they will lie, but facts speak louder than lies.
It has been well documented that Ratzmann was upset over one of Rod Meredith's sermons. Immediately after the shootings when word spread about Ratzmann's reaction to the sermon LCG scrubbed it from their web site. Rod Meredith has always been known to run off at the mouth without thinking first. His remaining months in the Worldwide Church of God was spent defending himself against a lawsuit for defaming Leona McNair in front of 700 some ministers of the WCG in Tuscon, Arizona. The court ruled against him and the church had to pay Leona McNair a large settlement.
