The Philadelphia Church of God, a legalistic splinter cult of Armstrongism, recently printed a "news" blurb from David Privratsky concerning the Chicago Winter Social that happened on January 31, 2015.
You may remember Privatsky. He is the husband of the late Janet DeGennero. In late July of 2014, Janet committed suicide because of the sick rules that Gerald Flurry has established forbidding his members from having contact with non PCG family members.
When Janet committed suicide, the PCG covered up the suicide and said that she died from a massive heart attack. That is the story that the abusers in the PCG sent out to the membership and had the husband tell Janet's family. Imagine lying to you in-laws because you were scared of the PCG hierarchy and what they would do to you if you disobeyed them? That is what Privratsky did. He called Janet's parents and lied! He lied because the PCG told him to!
In the PCG, committing suicide is a sin and damns the person to the lake of fire.PCG has done everything they can in the last few months in trying to eliminate any knowledge of Janet from the minds of members and her husband.
Less than nine months after her death, PCG has Privratsky reporting in their church news section about Chicago's winter social event. It can almost be guaranteed that PCG ministers told Privratsky to attend this event so he can start looking for a new mate. The Church of God has always frowned upon members mourning the deaths of loved ones. Why should this be any other way? Can you imagine the PCG giving Privratsky grief counseling or spending months taking care of him? No, I didn't think so, because I can't either.
