Presented in reverse chronology, this history stretches from the present back to the Fellowship's 1970 founding, and beyond.
(See "Blog Archive" in the sidebar below.) It draws from many sources, including The Fellowship of Friends - Living Presence Discussion, the Internet Archive, the former Fellowship of Friends wiki project, cult education and awareness sites, news archives, and from the editor's own 13-year experience in the Fellowship.

The portrait that emerges stands in stark contrast to sanitized versions presented on the Fellowship's array of
alluring websites, and on derivative sites created by Burton's now-estranged
disciple, Asaf Braverman.

Sunday, July 24, 1977


[ed. - This journal note from a naive member of the Fellowship of Friends center in Dallas, Texas was prophetic. Richard Buzbee, a new member they helped recruit, and his young son Troy, departed Dallas to be closer to leader Robert Burton in Oregon House, CA. Indeed, they were to become far too close.]
"Richard and his son, Troy departed Thursday morning [for Mount Carmel]...It will be a major event in his life I'm certain."
