Yet Another Timeline Change for Ron?

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

The federal court has established a timeline for the criminal trial of Ronald Weinland, with a series of procedural deadlines and a pre-trial conference on Jan 17 with the actual trial scheduled to start on Jan 31. Weinland seeks to change that timeline with a motion filed by his attorneys last week. Here is text from that motion:

————- Motion to Continue Trial ———–
Defendant Ronald E. Weinland, through undersigned counsel, respectfully moves this Court, pursuant to Local Criminal Rule 12.1(b) and 18 U.S.C. ยง 3161(h)(7), and with sufficient cause, for an Order continuing the trial date in this matter, currently set for January 31, 2012, at 10:00 a.m., for at least 180 days to such dates that are convenient to the Court. Mr. Weinland respectfully requests this continuance due to the unusual and complex nature of the case. As a result, it is unreasonable to expect adequate preparation for any pretrial proceedings or for the trial itself within the time limits established by the Speedy Trial Act.

Infinity is a Very Long Time

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

False Prophet Ronald Weinland was in Orlando yesterday. But he spoke only during the live feed prior to the beginning of services to give the two-minute warning for people to get ready. His main flunkies Johnny and Wayne gave a split sermon.

Wayne went first. He announced a number of home locations for people in attendance. From the US: NY, PA, MA, MN TX UT WA AZ KS MS MI KY TN OH GA IL FL SC VA MD HI. From Canada AB NS ON NB From Australia NSW VIC QLD. There were also people from the UK.

Then Wayne told a story about how he was attacked three times by birds during the 2010 feast. He blamed the bird attacks on an American tourist with a camera, who seems to be a PKG member from Florida named Shawn/Sean. But Wayne has forgiven Shawn. Wonder if Shawn thinks differently about camera use.

Wayne talked about people seeing with their mind’s eye. Since PKG members have turned their thinking over to Ron Weinland they see what Ron wants them to see. Wayne said that it’s not possible to have a relationship with God outside His Church. If you don’t believe any or all of the 57 Truths of Ron then it’s because of pride (not a realization that Ron pulled them all out of his nether region). Even though he’s cautioned his children in the past that each Christmas was to be the last, this time he knows really for sure that this indeed the last Christmas because of course Jesus is returning next May. Wayne is looking forward to the next Truth from God’s Representative on this earth, who is of course Ron Weinland.

Johnny mentioned the so-called and “in famous” (Johnnyism) “Christmas Eve” sermon, for which he says he was present on December 17, 1994 in Atlanta. He doesn’t understand why it’s called that since it was a week earlier. Actually, I think the Christmas Eve sermon was delivered in Big Sandy TX a week later on December 24, 1994. The Big Sandy sermon was actually on Christmas Eve and was videotaped, copies of which were sent out to be played back in local congregations. Johnny mentioned a clip in the video of the sermon showing people in the audience who were not actually present. That is something new for me. My sister was present at Big Sandy and says that part of the sermon was edited out of the videotape, that certain of Tkach’s statements were edited out but word-of-mouth spread around what Tkach said anyway. As an aside, I have been told that the Atlanta sermon was cut short because Tkach ran overtime and had to clear out as the meeting hall rental time was over.

Since December 24 falls on Saturday this year, it will be interesting to see if Ron makes a point of it in next week’s sermon. Next weekend is the “ministerial conference” at which Ron’s senior elders and above are to assemble to make final preparation for the millions of people who will join PKG in the 24 weeks remaining before Christ doesn’t return next Pentecost. This is to include a tithe of a third of those who were members of WCG on December 17, 1994 when Joe Tkach became the Man of Sin, That Wicked One, by opening the First Seal with his “in famous” “Christmas Eve” sermon. That would be about 3000 ex-WCG people to join PKG in the few months remaining.
