Re: Ford's entire book available in pdf for free
- Welcome to the site. Loved reading your posts. I don't have
much of a background in eckankar--wasn't a member very
long, but long enough to come away from eck events with
headaches and stomach pains. I agree that Harold is a nasty
man--he doesn't have enough sense to cover that up in what
he writes. I guess he is so "sick" he doesn't realize what a cad
he is. Yeah, too bad about Joan but yet she willingly got herself
into it and for some reason (I can't figure out the attraction) she
hooked up with Klemp.
But back to nasty Klemp--reading off and on some discussions
on eck chat sites, many of them seem to emulate Klemp's
harsh and nasty way of communicating, but yet they will often
sign off "in eck love." Reminds me of a parent beating his kid
half to death but telling him he did it out of love!
