Black Swan on the Swan River, Perth Western Au...

It's heartening to see the Perth Voice reporting on the outrageous excuse for a treatment centre that Mercy purports to be. As mentioned previously Mercy Ministries has already bought property in WA for the purpose of opening a home there so that women won't have to travel all the way to Sydney to be "spiritually abused".

The article holds no new information for regular followers for my posts on the Mercy debarcle, but if you are new to the blog and want to spend some time scaring yourself silly I would recommend starting with my last round up post that details the story from start to finish.

Then you might want to pop in and wish the Mercy survivors well at their website www.mercysurvivors.com

(note that the Voice does seem to be mistaken regarding family contact as far as I am aware inmate...I mean clients were only prevented with/from contact with friends)

Hey Sean, I've spent the day reading your blogs about Mercy and looking at some other reports. Shocking stuff. I'm writing it up for inclusion in our Freedom of Religion submission under a question regarding 'faith-based initiatives'. I'll send you the copy for your approval/additions/corrections when I'm finished.

I've also been looking into Exodus and Living Waters ex-gay ministries. Ugh! What's great is that many of their counsellors have left, come out of the closet publicly and condemn the programmes they used to lead.
