EXCLUSIVE BRETHREN AND CHARITY STATUS

That this House congratulates the Charity Commission for denying charitable status to the Exclusive Brethren sect; notes the sect's doctrine of separation which has divided families and excludes Brethren from society to the extent that members refuse to live in semi-detached houses for fear of contamination from non-Brethren; and is appalled by the definition of their faith expressed by their leader Bruce Hales that the whole principles of the world have to be scorned, disdained and hated and that members of the sect have to develop an utter hatred of every feature of the world to avoid being sucked in and seduced by it.
