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.

Ex-Member Sues Yuba Sect, Alleges Sex With Minor

Sacramento Bee Article
A former member of a Yuba County sect filed suit Monday accusing the leader of the group of battery and sexual misconduct with a minor. Troy Buzbee also alleged that leaders of Fellowship of Friends inflicted emotional distress, failed to pay the minimum wage and subjected him to "brainwashing . . . which stripped (him) of his autonomy and ability to think independently." A spokeswoman for the group denied the charges.
