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.

Robert Burton's purported advice to a pedophile

"Draco" wrote on the Fellowship of Friends Discussion blog:
Here’s a story that hasn’t received enough attention and which I heard last year from the medical professional.
A Fellowship student went to another Fellowship student who worked in the medical profession and described his problem. The first student told the medical professional that he was a pedophile and he was attracted to little girls. (I have no idea to what extent this was put into practice, but it was definitely a problem for him.) At some point he had gone to Robert and confessed this to him and asked advice. Robert’s only advice was to wait until 2006 (the supposed year of nuclear Armageddon) after which there would be no restrictions on sexual behavior. So the pedophile student waited and 2006 came and went and then he didn’t know what to do. After all, he had just been postponing the fulfillment of his sexual desires. Luckily he had the sense to go to the medical professional who was arranging to get professional help for him.
But what a piece of “teaching” from Robert!
1. Robert approved the student’s pedophilia by just telling him to wait until the moment is right.
2. Robert therefore put the children of Fellowship students at risk.
3. It was completely useless advice for someone who at that time sincerely admitted that he had a problem..
4. Robert was obviously looking forward to 2006 so that he would have no restrictions on his own sexual behavior. Whether he might desire some underage liaisons himself is anyone’s guess, but I would advise any FOF students to keep their children away from him.
It reminds me of the story of the wife of an important student in the Fellowship who contacted Robert to tell him that her husband was spending hours watching porn on the Internet. Robert responded that after 2006 there won’t be any Internet.
