Introduction


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.

European centers asked to make donations in cash

"L. M." wrote on The Fellowship of Friends Discussion blog, January 7, 2016:

[ed. - Post was removed at request of author. The poster described traveling with Robert Burton in Europe in the late 1980s. A Center Director handed Robert's Secretary a bag containing cash.

The poster asked the Secretary about this and was told that it is difficult to transfer donations between countries, especially the U.S. For this reason, donations in Europe are requested in cash, and Burton uses the cash in countries where the donations are "harvested." Post date approximate.]
