    News

    One of the most prominent Elder Masters has withdrawn from association with GMT, having to do with the Soard sex fiasco, which has come to the attention of GMT. It also includes Soards wife asking BB testing students for favors etc. Lets see if this new news has anything to do with them teaching any more as well. KC

    The Soards

    So much of the negative reputation of SD (not all, but a lot) has come from them. The cultish behavior, the sex assaults, the worst fu in the system (on average; not that there aren't good practitioners out there). Is it just the cash that keeps GMT from booting them?

    Sadly, they are not the only instructors GMT has kept around because they brought in dollars, but lacked quality.

    So an elder master has left because sin the sided with the Soards in the sex scandal?

    Sin The knew all about the sex scandal - but protected the Soards at costs.

    Only two of the 8th Degrees are not Kool-Aid drinkers and Kool-Aid sales people.

    Mullins and Grooms. - There is a reason those two aren't on SDA website.

    I thought Grooms had been gone for awhile. So - is it Mullins?

  7. The Soards have lost over 10 schools and more leave all the time.

    It was only a matter of time before this happened.

    I would be surprised to see this hit the news, unless there was ANOTHER sex scandal. otherwise, just in-house drama.

    Does this rumor involve Sin The' or the soards?

    Grooms and Mullins

    Haven't left GMT; they just split from the Lexington Branch like the Soards did. In fact, most of the schools that split from the Soards are now managed/supervised/pay their mob kickbacks to Grooms/Mullins. In fact, all of the elder masters are still tight with GMT as far as I know. News to the contrary would, indeed, be news.

  11. those schools do not pay kickbacks to mullins/grooms. They only pay if they want them to do a seminar.

    I was being a bit hyperbolic. Sorry for that. It was a joking allusion to Rydberg's allegation that GMT required a certain number of testing/seminar fees per year from his schools.

    This sounds like this is something new.

    The previous "news worthy" happening was '09 or there about.
