    I'm so sorry for you and your brother, and I hope he gets the help he needs. My mom basically asked me what I would gain by not being a witness. For one thing, I would no longer be a part of a religion that does shit like this.

    I've known people who turned into alcoholics or suffered severe depression. It's not surprising some might turn suicidal dealing with the process of extricating themselves from this cult.

    Pale, you mentioned 'his' mom chose carers for him.

    Does your brother need carers and if so, is there a possibility for you to become his advocate or guardian and therefore, you (and he) choose who will provide his care?

    Sorry to hear this PE and hope things improve with your brother quickly.

    That's terrible. The whole scenario is heartbreaking. I have no other words other than I'm so sorry this transpired.

    I agree....I hate the cult too.

    My heart goes out to you both. Tragic circumstances for both you and your brother. You will be strong enough to withstand this, as well as to help carry your brother through it as well. You'll do whatever you are able to do - because you can see what is really going on, as opposed to those who are functioning on "cult automatic pilot."

    I truly hope your brother's situation improve rapidly.

    Thinking of you this morning and hoping your brother is okay.

    My heart goes out to you. Please don't let your brother go. Hang on to him. He needs you.

    I am speechless as to your mother's behaviour. As a mum myself nothing would stand between me and the well being of my kids. No religion. Nothing. She is heartless. They are all heartless.

    'By their love you will know them' yes, well that definitely rules out witnesses!

    You are a good person and I would be proud to have you as a son.

    Much love to you.

    I am very sorry for this situation. I can't imagine what you are feeling right now and also your brother.

    Witnesses can be heartless.

    Sorry your brother is suffering because of this cult's mind-fuckery. It must be difficult to stand by and watch. He needs at least one person in his life right now that is in touch with reality - that person be you.

    Be strong for both of you and don't let the culty elders insert a wedge - your brothers mental health depends upon it.
