Other churches also operate homeless shelters, food banks, hospices and hospitals. They organize bookdrives and Thanksgiving dinners for the needy. In other words, they do things similar to what I imagine that guy Jesus would be doing were he living in the 21st century.
In my last days associating with a COG, the realization that this as an insular, heartless, paranoid group of people eager for their neighbors to suffer the tribulation sickened me. Of all the things that damn WCG and its offshoots, their treatment (or lack thereof) of the needy stands out to me the most.
Robin, who commented on the new blog I Survived Armstrongism describing her disturbance of the XCG’s lack of a social conscience to the less fortunate where as non-XCG had a much greater social conscience to the marginalized of society.
