Boycott! Hell, they flat out make sure the "defecting member" actually looses their business, jobs, homes, lives in Moscow.
Don't fool yourself - it happens and it happens a lot. Some really, really good people are gone because of Doug and his bunch's "you broke the convenient with the church which is saying you broke it with God, therefore you are condemned!" We got that speech and the people making it to us were totally sincere - they feel like we and others like us have betrayed God when we leave the church.
Don't forget about the Kong family, among others. They had their business and home taken away from them just because Mr. K disagreed with Doug and made the mistake of doing so in a "public" way - in front of other kirker members.
And don't, PLEASE, don't forget Mrs. Gregg Dickison...not only was she removed from her home, she lost all ability to have any meaningful contact with her children by him and she was pregnant; plus, we were all told NOT to have anything to do with her to the point of crossing the street to avoid any conversation with her. You can't get much lower than that - kicking out a pregnant mother and making sure she has NO where and NO friends to go to but the street.
Funny how the "intolerants" came to her rescue and she is doing well now.
Doug's middle name is "Boycott This!" But like his precious Ford truck, he refuses to admit to its inappropriateness where he is the actor is concerned.

I have talked with former Christ Church members who
have suffered severe emotional and economic pain when they decided to break with
the Church. Their message to me was that Wilson demands obedience and
those who cross him are humiliated, ostracized, and boycotted.
Yes, boycotted. Their business relationships
with other Christ Church members are ended.
Compare that with the recent whining from
Wilson and Atwood about a potential boycott by Moscow residents of local
stores owned by Church members. Wilson, Atwood, et al are disgusted by the
threat of a boycott of stores owned by Church members in good
standing. However, Wilson, Atwood and the rest of the Church
administration are very willing to boycott those who leave the

Please meet Patrick Poole, a man of whom Douglas Wilson said, "I have known Mr. Poole to act with integrity in the
past," and who is a friend of mine. I know Pat well enough to guess that he
probably does not want to get dragged back into Kult Kombat, but I must invoke
his testimony (for a short period) as my first witness for the reason why I
conceal my identity.
In February 2006, Patrick posted a couple of
hard-hitting essays critical of Doug Wilson and the CREC on his blog, and less
than a week later he uploaded this post, which he has since removed.
Nevertheless, his testimony stands:

Kutting My Losses on the Kirk
The time has come for me to cry uncle. I must say "no
mas" to the Wilsonistas. They have won. At this point in time, I cannot
continue to endure the Wilsonistas harassment jihad that has now
spread to my friends, my clients, and my church in the wake of my posts over
the past week. Some are also trolling for dirt on me for what I can only
assume would be the basis for ad hominem attacks to avoid answering
the very direct questions I've put to the Great Leader. In the final
analysis, there are just simply too many Wilsonistas starting fires for me
to possibly contemplate putting them all out. I must call it quits and admit
defeat before they try to burn down everything around me. I must confess
that I greatly underestimated how quickly they have acted. I guess what I
wrote hit too close to home.
Could it be that this harassment
jihad launched by Doug Wilson's apologists and lackeys against me is
entirely unorganized and is in no way connected to the Sultan of
Subjectivity? That very well might be the case. I certainly don't have any
iron-clad evidence that it is an orchestrated effort. But if that's the
case, there is certainly a culture of venom and malice that has been allowed
to flourish around the Kirk Kult, with the use of destructive and
unchristian methods nourished and justified by the writings and sermons of
the Bhagwan himself under the guise of "Trinitarian skylarking" and "the
serrated edge." Honestly, the harassment would be more tolerable if the
Wilsonistas were in reality as funny or as witty as they believe themselves
to be (but aren't).
In retrospect, the fault is entirely my own. I
knew what I was getting into. I thrust my hand into the viper's nest and got
bit. Shame on me. As Blind Willy Johnson used to sing, "Nobody's Fault But
But what the Wilsonistas won't admit is that IT IS a viper's
nest that they are a part of. The politics of personal destruction I've
encountered (and my friends and associates have experienced for the crime of
being associated with me) at the hands of the Kirk Kult in recent days is
standard practice for the Wilsonistas and their Great Leader. Just ask Terry
Morin, who dared speak out and had his company suffer at the hands of the
Wilsonistas because of it. But even more important than any financial
repercussions was the deliberate damage done to Terry's reputation by the
false witness and trumped-up charges filed against him by Doug Wilson and
the elders of Kirk Kult, charges that were only withdrawn only because the
Great Leader's documents were shown to be forgeries on the unanimous
testimony of everyone else involved. Thankfully, Terry had his church to
examine Wilson's lies and clear his name. Others that have tried to escape
the Kirk orbit have not been so lucky.
I realize that any pain and
suffering I might have endured at the hands of the Wilsonistas during this
very brief affair is minimal compared to what others have experienced. I
know; I've heard from many of the Wilson-wounded over the past week. I
suspect why so many of the "fellowship of the grievance" have gravitated to me is
because I expressed in my two posts from two thousand miles away what they
have had to live through in real life day to day. They maybe believed that I
identified with them because I was willing to say publicly that the drug
dens at New St. Andrews, the illegal Kirk elder-approved casinos and the documented payoffs
involved, which are just a normal part of the landscape of WilsonWorld, is a
demonstration of a thoroughly corrupt culture — all of which is lost on the
Wilsonistas and the Wilson apologists. It's clear that they don't care.
Having been in the PCA for almost 15 years, I can't remember a single
instance of a troubled church having these kinds of problems, which seem to
be so commonplace in the Kirk.
In closing, I appreciate that I've
been warmly welcomed in as a member of the "fellowship of the grievance." It
is a badge of honor. These are kind and sincere Christian people, and I feel
like I'm abandoning them to the furies of the Wilsonistas by my rapid
retreat, perhaps even encouraging further abuse. They will be the one's left
to clean up the shattered lives when the Kirk Kult reaches its inevitable
end. When that day comes, I suspect that they will exhibit extraordinary
grace and charity, never once thinking to say, "I told you so." May God
bless them for continuing to bear up.
With that said, this will be my
last post on the matter.
POSTED BY PATRICK POOLE AT 6:49 PM 1
A local columnist wrote a follow-up article to
Patrick's piece, which you can read here, and please notice Douglas Wilson's comment; he wrote:
"Joan, could you help me out here? Who is Patrick Poole? I am a little behind
the curve." Of course, Wilson was lying because the only thing that happened
between that comment, dated February 26, 2006, and this comment, dated June 15, 2007, is the passing of time.
In fact, Patrick nailed Wilson several more times from another blog (which I
commend only as far as it comments on Wilson, Moscow, and the CREC).
at one time Wilson pretends he has no knowledge of Patrick Poole, and at
another he declares him a man of integrity. Patrick, however, is not a man
easily flattered. He replied to Wilson's sweet talk with this comment. I for one am thankful for Patrick's integrity.
In Part II I will provide more testimony from local witnesses
whom Wilson and his goons attempted to silence through bullying harassment.
It's just more of the same, only the names are different. But the lesson I
would have you learn from Patrick Poole's testimony is that if you want to
criticize Wilson in public, you better not give him any handles such as your
name. Witness Patrick Poole. After all, Douglas Wilson says that he is a man
POST SCRIPT: Very shortly I will
pull Patrick's essay out of respect for him. I will not drag him back into
this; I am sure he's had enough. I post it because his testimony is
compelling. Posted by Mark T. at 10:40
