Read or listen to the story here. These are a few fascinating quotes from the story:
Like other households, everyone in JPUSA shares the same bank account. If a member needs something, like new clothes, they have to go to the money office to request it. Everyone leads simple lives because they believe anything extra should go to the poor.
Former JPUSA member, Luke, talks about how he was punished: They would take you into a room and they would tell you what your offense was. Then the they would ask you to take down your pants and they would beat you with a dowel rod. They they would pray with you about your problem and send you off.
Makes you wonder what other Christian activities are going on over at the Friendly Towers.
