On Friday night last, cult expert David Millikan disrupted an ‘Esoteric Medicine’ presentation with a TV crew and a reality check. Ever since, SergeProp has been overflowing with misplaced outrage. We’ve decided to run their protests through our reality testing device.
Seeing Universal Medicine’s apologism army lack a reliable reality tester of their own, probably due to all that vitamin B and essential fatty acid deficiency, we’ve offered to let them use ours. (And apologies for the long post, but the ‘love blogs’ are flooded with reams of this nonsense.)
Let’s start with Dianne T. the research biologist writing on the wordsonsergebenhayon blog. First, Dianne, how do those PRANIC! molecules riddling perfectly nutritious foods look under a microscope, dear?
Oh sorry, that’s right, they’re ‘esoteric’, a word from the Sergespeak glossary that when passed through the grey matter of the reality tester turns out to be a euphemism for ‘fraudulent’. But I digress. We have nothing against you and your friends personally, Dianne, and we’re sure you’re really nice people and everything, but you need to examine who and what you’re defending. Now to your post about the sense of violation you felt when you found Serge’s meeting was being filmed and David Millikan spoke some sense to the group after being invited onstage by Serge:
Right now my heart hurts and I feel very shaken by something that is happening right in front of me. The Australian media are in the process of aggressively harassing people who have come to hear a presentation on healthy, loving lifestyle choices…When I first arrived I saw a television crew with 3 big cameras outside the front door. I wondered what was happening but it didn’t feel good. They filmed me front on, but had not the decency to introduce themselves, or tell me why they were there or ask my permission to film me…I looked in the door and could see more television reporters wielding cameras, filming and harassing the puzzled audience including children and teenagers…They are upsetting, confusing and offending people who don’t yet know what’s happening. The reporters appear to be exempt from the law which individuals such as myself are bound to obey or face the consequences. By what right does the media do this? How is it that TV reporters are allowed to act with such contempt for standards of common human decency and honesty? They may be employees but I hold them personally responsible and culpable for the dishonest and abhorrent way they are conducting their business, and subsequently with whatever lies they broadcast on TV, radio, online or in the newspapers. For peaceful citizens to be affected this way as a result of media aggression is unacceptable. It has to change.
Yes, dear. Fair enough. But how about we look at it another way, this time running it through the reality tester, which is capable of looking at this situation as a bigger picture. Did it occur to you David might have been trying to awaken you to a much larger pattern of harm? Much larger and exponentially more harmful than exposing a group of people to cameras and common sense?
Right now my heart hurts and I feel very shaken by something that is happening right in front of me. An Australian healing group is in the process of aggressively emotionally harassing and financially draining vulnerable people who come to hear about healthy, loving lifestyle choices…When I first arrived I saw a harmless looking thin man who put his hands on my abdomen, said he was reading my ovaries and began to fish for information on my personal experiences with men. I wondered what was happening but it didn’t feel good. He put his hands on me, but had not the decency to get himself a therapeutic qualification to rightfully do so or to make himself accountable to any professional or regulatory body…I went to Esoteric Healing workshops to see the same harmless looking bloke harassing the puzzled audience including children and teenagers with his vile world negating doctrine and explicit rants on sexual violence and evil, imaginary, predatory entities…He is upsetting, confusing and offending people who don’t yet know what’s happening. This so called healer believes himself to be exempt from the law which individuals such as myself are bound to obey or face the consequences. By what right does he do this? How is it that a proven liar and former bankrupt who calls himself a ‘healer’ is allowed to act with such contempt for standards of common human decency and honesty? He may be a deluded narcissist and victim of his own pathology but I hold him personally responsible and culpable for the dishonest and abhorrent way he conducts his business, and subsequently whatever lies he tells the media and his following, and broadcasts via his books and blogs. For peaceful citizens to be affected this way as a result of one deluded man’s aggression is unacceptable. It has to change.
It has a slightly different complexion doesn’t it? But that’s how the reality tester sees it.
Now from Jenny M:
I did not pay $5.00 to be ranted at by David Millikan and his theories of how I was a cult member when he does not know me. But I am wise enough to know that he was not interested in who I was or even concerned if I was a part of a cult, he was there to make money off me.
Are you so wise? You don’t think Serge is making money off you and all of your ‘friends’? How much exactly have you spent on Universal Medicine? Why is Serge’s wisdom so expensive? $350 for a weekend workshop. Why do you keep signing up for workshops when you all insist he never tells you what to do?
From Deborah M:
David was not there to report the truth, nor even to present an open forum and the possibility of presenting both sides of the story. He was certainly not there for the people nor to even allow the people’s true voices to be heard.
How do you know he wasn’t there to report the truth? Do you think the four UM blogs are an open forum when many of our readers have unsuccessfully attempted to post their questions and opinions there? There are definitely two sides to the story and one side is found here on this site, and in the full testimony I’ve made on camera to the same program, and which I’ll make in court in support of anyone who comes forward with evidence Serge took his intrusive behaviour beyond what I endured. Why do none of you ever mention what happened to me? All you ‘loving’ people?
From Sally writing on The Truth about Serge Benhayon (sic) site:
I felt violated and attacked for what is my most basic right, that is, the right to choose. I choose to be a student of Universal Medicine and I chose to attend this presentation. I chose to go and listen to Serge Benhayon speak. I have this right.
No one’s attacking your right to choose. No one’s stopping you from going and throwing your money into Serge’s property investments. What we’re upholding is your right and the public’s right to be informed of the facts about this group, and not simply what is cleansed and ‘presented’ via UM’s propaganda machine.
Seeing you’re carrying on about rights, do you have anything to say about patients’ rights to receive responsible, qualified medical care without indoctrination and molestation and without having their privacy invaded?
Finally, voila, le piece de resistance, from model student, Kyla writing on the Truth about Universal Medicine blog, who is vomiting at being called a devotee. Again, there’s no mention of any of the serious infractions we’ve raised on this blog, just a tired, rather overwrought rant about the abusive men who are showing legitimate concern and opposition to UniMed’s spiritual, emotional and financial bankrupting of its followers:
Mindless, weak willed, spiritual seeker, follower, devotee (vomit just at that word), cult member, woman (?!?) …. These words have been used to describe me, or women that I know negatively… behind our backs, either in whispers around town… I am appalled! I am disgusted and disheartened! What is going on if this abuse, denigration and treatment of myself and other women (and men also) are allowed to continue without any true facts or foundation?
Personally, I tend not to be offended when called a woman. Why aren’t you appalled, disgusted and disheartened by the way I was treated in Serge’s treatment room? What about those facts? I’m sure he pulled the same stunt on you. Maybe you didn’t realize you were being exploited and abused. You think abuse is being called mindless and weak willed when you choose to ignore factual accounts? You’re not making a very good case.
What I have noticed within this community is this… When I had a marijuana dependency, was a heavy ‘social’ drinker and smoked a pack a day of cigarettes I was more generally socially accepted than I am now because I choose not to drink, have quit smoking all weeds and take better care of myself than ever before!?! Is this not strange?
Um, no. I don’t do any of those things either and it’s made no difference to my social acceptability. I also manage to avoid drugs without Serge’s ‘help’. You’re less socially accepted, dear, because you’ve become unsocial. You regard anyone outside the group, anyone who drinks beer or coffee or eats dairy or gluten as inferior (PRANIC!), and anyone with misgivings about UniMed as hostile and abusive. You also regard yourselves as having a monopoly on soulfulness and ‘lovingness’. It makes you a bit of a superior bore.
What I am sick of is men abusing women, ex-partners and mothers of their children by accusing them of ridiculous things… Note to you all – don’t smile at my face in the street, if this is what you are involved in because I have no respect or time for people that are encouraging and or allowing men to bully women and children no matter what there concerns are – there is no excuse for this treatment!
No matter what their concerns are? What exactly constitutes bullying Kyla? People speaking the truth and attempting to inform the public of such? Please be more specific. If abuse is occurring, why haven’t you informed the police? I tend to think exposing children to Serge’s venal, anxiety provoking worldview and his insane, nutritionally deficient diet more accurately constitutes abuse. Also, you trivialize true victims of domestic abuse with your paltry definition.
A bunch of childish men that could not take responsibility for failed relationships are distracting themselves with a witch hunt and doing serious damage in the process, and the first to be greatly affected is women and children. Hiding behind the fact they are trying to do ‘good’ and expose harm is clearly a load of crap… Back to some of the men involved is this hate-campaign, if you think it’s all right to shred, judge and rip apart other people online, then I am going to do the same for you…. Man 1. Total Douche Bag, big man about town, attitude filled wanker, worst example of the ‘used car sales man’ cliché, responsible for causing tension within otherwise harmonious relationships by spreading conspiracy theories and suspicion, recruiting other haters and has done more damage in this last year, than all the lies and crap he is putting on others. Man 2. Miserable Angry A-hole that constantly puts down and verbally abuses his ex-partner of 6 years, has never held down a regular job, has no assests, no income to support his children and no balls, only a true bully picks on a woman half his size and age.
Kyla, dear, I suggest you take a deep breath. What is it Serge says about being loving and controlling your emotions? How much have you and your extended family spent on learning to do that? It’s deep into 6 figures isn’t it? Enough to buy sports cars for the entire Benhayon family, and more. I’m not sure the investment is paying off for you considering you spectacularly lose your cool at the first hint of criticism.
Please give examples of anyone ripping into anyone else online. Provide us with links. I happily rip into Pervy Uncle Sergey, his profiteering professional apologists and his pretend ‘healers’, but that lot is fair game – promoting and profiting from an industry of harm. Again, has anyone made a complaint to police of abuse, or do you actually think your own unsubstantiated hate-campaign, ripping into people you disagree with online will achieve anything apart from making you look silly?
The community of Bangalow in general now has to stand up together, regardless of involvement in Universal Medicine or not, if you do not agree with this treatment of women (children and men) within our community then stand up.
Too late, Kyla. Universal Medicine divided Bangalow, not a couple of concerned husbands and fathers. You won’t convince the majority of inhabitants UniMed and Serge are anything but a hateful, polarizing influence when they’ve seen and experienced it for themselves.
Now we should all stand up and ask these men to come out of hiding and answer for what they are doing and why…
What about me, Kyla? Why do you pretend I don’t exist? Are you aware I’ll be on national television telling of my experience? None of you can deny what happened to me because Serge has done it to so many of you. Did he offer you a vaginal examination as well? Has he ever spoken ‘jokingly’ to you of perving on your kids? Why have none of you reborn feminists and noble protectors of children had a word to say about my account?
I suggest you calm down, dear, and have a good read of it. Then visit Our Mission page, the part of our site Super Nanny might call ‘The Thinking Corner’. Read that, have a think, and then start discussing some of those questions and issues, rather than blaming all of the disharmony in the Lismore region on a couple of caring, conscientious men.
