Leaving Hillsong

  • 39. Just A Wacko - pt 2 Misogyny, Donald Elley and AoG Men

    Laura contacted blogger Donald Elley, an outspoken and extremist commentator on Hillsong and all things righteous and Christian. Laura was seeking resources for a documentary. Donald was seeking so much more, it became, in the words of BCH, unhinged. Misogyny in evangelicalism and Hillsong type places is over the top and we're calling it out for what it is, starting with an easy example of hypocrite and hyperbole, Donald Elley of Bellingen.

Laura and Tanya discuss the narcissistic template for pentecostal boys and girls and how maleness is privileged, esteemed and honoured, while femaleness is subservient and ever diminished and minimised. It happened to Laura.. while researching for her latest project, she quickly became the object of obsession for one of the pentecostal peacocks.. a writer, a decent good Christian man, son of a minister... the kind of human the fundies love to think they are... until it becomes clear that they are very much nothing like that at all. It's terrifying and it's time to talk about it. ... so come chat!!

  • 31. Into the House Part 2

    Mercy Ministries offered Sarah and Britt y health treatment in a faith based program. After arriving, they found it was very different, and that rather than treat their mental health concerns, the enclosed and punitive program made life so much worse. Sharing details of the daily lives, ways out and impacts of MM, these two women bring truth into the sun, but not before many years have brought them to this safer place and we are grateful for their voices.
