It is you who has written  unsubstantiated rubbish with your promoting of unfounded allegations about a group you know nothing about. Your futile attempts to change the subject  do not mitigate your  actions nor support the false claims. The fact remains is that a group that the group was accused of being corrupt without any supporting evidence. You haven't even  been at one of their meetings or been solicited by them, and yet you are ready to trash them.

 

Yes, one can go out on one's own and  do good. Many people do. However, the reality is that the number of people doing so in  Hua Hin is small, despite your statement. And it is consistently the same relatively small number of foreigners who volunteer their time and money. It is those foreigners though, who are the backbone of many valuable charitable organizations in Hua Hin and I give thanks for their kindness and generosity.  

 

You don't know much about the local community, or Thailand do you? Because if you did, you would know that there is a serious reluctance to help people who are born with deformities and congenital defects. It's slowly changing, but until it happens, it's Christian and western charities who have shouldered much of some basic services to kids born with deformities and other cultural stigmas.

 

 No one is "telling" others how good they are. Rather, as someone who has seen some of these groups in action I can acknowledge their activities. I do not belong to the  church group, nor do I share many of their beliefs, primarily because I am agnostic.  I do not have a vested interest in any faith group, nor am I affiliated with them. However, despite my personal views, I know who is  volunteering and who is giving money and it isn't the pot bellied greaser farang with a  massive magical amulet and his  cheap tart concubine. Think  before you trash a group, next time.

Truly bigoted reply. I expect I have lived in Thailand far far longer than you and see first hand the real issues they face, and I don't live in Hua Hin or any other similar area where bullshit breeds bullshit by sanctimonious morons.

 

 As I said just go back to your bible bashing for maximum thanks from your same ilk.

Brilliant. 

1. You do not live in Hua Hin, and have no knowledge of the social services or charities in the community,

2. You know nothing  about the group referenced but labeled it as "corrupt".

 

Absolutely brilliant display of genius.

And if there are so many groups with bigoted views like yourself then I and many others no doubt are damn glad we don't live there.

These 'Christian' groups are a disgrace to the country... eroding the Thai culture, traditions and destroying Buddhism and Animistic beliefs..

 

These groups are insidious. They prey of weak minded and stupid people to part with their money, give up their values and culture, and often split up families and friendships.  They are sneaky and clever at how they go about converting people. 

 

They are just money making operations... you will see the owners and 'preachers' having big houses, cars and money to burn on expensive clothes and fancy meals... while they keep taking money off poor and vulnerable people.  These kind of groups are hot beds for child molestation and sexual abuse also. 

 

Don't support anything to do with them!

Agreed and there are one or two who fall into that category obviously responded to this string

To label this group corrupt without any evidence, is presumptuous and cynical.

 

But you can't pretend there's no precedent behind that cynicism.  

 

These religious groups, while doing "good work" in the community, always have a primary, ulterior agenda to proselytize with the aim of recruiting new members into the flock.  It's pointless to disagree because the god whisperers themselves will tell you they are instructed to do so by their overriding, primary charter - The Bible.

 

Where it goes wrong is when they camouflage their primary motivation with "good work".  Those "free" hamburgers given to starving people aren't free; there's always a catch.   Most of us who have our basic human needs met, would hand that free burger back to the slippery missionary and tell them to stick it where the sun don't shine.  Those in less fortunate circumstances will keep chewing and.....

 

Seems to be some contention within the christian sphere about these protestants.  Further, the protestant strain of the christian virus doesn't seem to emphasize doing "good work" as a requirement for salvation and eternal life.

I give the "Christians" as much respect as I do to "Thai Buddhists" whatever that means.

They are all "children of God" as are the honest Moslems, the honest Buddhists, and any other religion you may name..

Beyond that I have seen to many "religions" to believe in Just one.

The problem is not with the religions it is with the people who profess to be believers in them.
