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.

Citizenship and Immigration Services investigation begins

[ed. - Excerpt from U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement report posted on Internet Archive:]
On January 3, 2005, the ASAIC, Sacramento received a lead from the ICE Law
Enforcement Support Center (LESC) tip-line relating to a group called the
Fellowship of Friends (FOF) in Oregon House, CA. It was alleged that the FOF
was bringing aliens to the United States on religious (R-i) visas for sexual
exploitation. Investigation to date has revealed that the aliens who have
been petitioned for by the FOF to enter the U.S. on R-l visas have been
employed by the FOF in menial non-religious jobs for extremely low wages.
