Universal Law solicitor and inept internet troll, Paula Fletcher, once told us that she’s not on ‘anyone’s payroll actually’. Perhaps it’s a partial truth. Perhaps Paula doesn’t charge ‘a jot’ for issuing false legal notices for Sergio the bogan messiah. Perhaps she donates her services out of religious devotion to his glorious multimillion dollar scam. But it’s more than that, isn’t it Paula?
Paula Fletcher is Emmalee Benhayon’s mum.
So how old was Emmalee when she went to live with the Benhayons, Paula?
She was a teenager, yes? Mid teens, is that right?
It’s a bit of a theme in Serge’s household isn’t it? An adolescent girl goes to live with the Benhayons and ends up married to one.
Miranda Benhayon was first. She moved into Serge’s home as an ‘elite’ tennis pupil in her early teens.
The cult’s aggression in trying to bully us off the internet and wreck our livelihoods appears to arise from their disapproval of our ‘insinuations’. But I’m not insinuating a thing. I’m asking questions based on facts. A large number of our readers are people who have or are related to children involved with UM. Apparently we’re supposed to feel reassured by Anne Cummings’ insistence that all the little girls who’ve gone to stay at Serge’s house are ‘fine’, and entities only rape the babies of people who drink liquor. We’re supposed to feel equally reassured that when I ask questions about the welfare of children and other vulnerable people targeted by the group, I am bombarded with intimidation attempts instead of answers. Retaliation overkill.
It’s hardly persuasive.
Let’s look at what we know about the Benhayon family.
They are insular. They don’t mingle. They don’t have friends, they have followers and/or investors. Has Miranda Benhayon ever been sighted out with friends, or out shopping on her own? Doing anything on her own? In the past twenty years?
The Benhayons work and work and work. Do they holiday? Serge puts his women to work as soon as they are capable of earning. His wife, Miranda, was earning her keep very young, wasn’t she Deborah? Natalie was learning ‘healing’ from age 15. Or was it 14? And if Paula isn’t on the payroll, Emmalee certainly is, doing everything from Eso-healing, to reception and marketing duties, to performing in the family burlesque.
I need to make it clear for the Esoteric lynch mob, I’m not objecting to the Benhayons working, but the sinister reality of Serge recruiting young women with no qualifications to earn for the firm – discouraging them from getting decent education and training that would give them the option of financial and personal independence. What will happen when the whole scam collapses and all the Benhayons have are their worthless EPA accreditations?
That’s how Serge maintains loyalty. He keeps family and the faith-full financially dependent.
Personal boundaries within the family are highly questionable, with Serge using his daughter or a similarly young girl as a treatment model for techniques featuring inappropriate touching. Young girls are regular house guests at Benhayon’s home. We have a list of names. Tibouchina told us Serge chose an adolescent girl as a treatment model for hands on healing demonstrations in front of hundreds of ‘students’. He could have chosen any adult. The same young girl was seen to be getting hugs from his holiness, the ‘voice from heaven’, and hanging around him in an unusually affectionate way. Tibouchina also noticed groups of adolescents around the UM clinic accompanied by Natalie Benhayon. We know from student notes, amateur social worker, Natalie pressured kids as young as twelve into group disclosures of drug, alcohol and porn use, and to talk about their sexual experiences. Tibouchina saw Michael Benhayon stroking the face of a young girl who wasn’t Emmalee at one of the events. Moreover, an anonymous commenter claims he had his genitals touched by one of the Benhayon sons at a workshop. We can’t doubt that when Serge teaches that technique -we have the workshop manual and the images to prove it – and his experience matches that of other readers – one of whom made a complaint along those lines to the HCCC.
UM’s response started with denying the images were authentic, then denying his hands were near the model’s ‘lady parts’, and later denying groping for the pubic chakra of sexual abuse victims is inappropriate. Always accompanied by the rote insistence on the ‘integrity’ of the World’s Teacher.
What goes on in the Benhayon household where young girls are regular house guests?
That’s not an insinuation but a valid question based on verified facts. Are young girls safe there? And why is the cult so relentlessly aggressive in trying to silence me?
Will they dare go public to deny our concerns, making the same lame excuses they made on their password protected sites?
If they have so much integrity, why are they at such great pains to hide it?
If a victim or their family comes forward, what kind of retaliation can they expect from the hundreds of loyal Brides of Serge and their defamatory propaganda?
The cult has refused to publicly address our questions, for good reason. They don’t have a reasonable response, as they’ve recently proved.
Alison Greig has responded to our questions about Benhayon’s 20 year habit of having young girls stay at his home on the *facts* site with the claim that our questions about the welfare of those young women is a ‘sexual obsession’. She then reckons it’s only ever been teenagers who’ve stayed there.
Except that we have student notes naming a ten year old girl who stayed in Serge’s home, and Anne Cummings telling me that she knows all the ‘kids’ who’ve stayed in Serge’s home and besides ‘they’re not kids anymore, they’re twelve.’
In what could be labelled as simply bizarre (if such allegations were not so alarming) Esther Rockett and Lance Martin regularly refer to ‘young girls’ and ‘teenage girls’ staying in Serge’s home unaccompanied, alongside ridiculous suggestions that ‘cult’ parents are lining up for their young daughters to be able to stay in Serge’s home…
With respect to Lance Martin’s and Esther Rockett’s other allegations about ‘young girls’ staying at the Benhayon home; the truth is it is no secret that teenage girls from interstate and abroad stay at the Benhayon home from time to time, often to do work experience at the Universal Medicine Clinic or to attend courses. The fact is Serge has always shared his financial success with others. His private charitable work will be the subject of much study one day. And a small part of his yet to be known private charitable work is helping the youth as much as he helps the many families, professionals and adults…
As he has stated – “helping our youth is a much-needed factor. Truly helping them requires real commitment and one’s personal success to provide very real inspiration”…
The question we have to ask about teenagers staying at the Benhayon household is – So what?
Putting aside the obvious fact that in most people’s minds there is nothing inappropriate about teenagers staying at the home of family friends, another pertinent fact that seems to be lost on Esther Rockett and Lance Martin is that the Benhayon household is full of young people with Serge’s two sons and their wives currently living there and it was not so long ago that Serge Benhayon’s sons and their girlfriends were teenagers themselves. Universal Medicine Facts site
There aren’t any teenagers living there, and there wasn’t any during the nineties either when Miranda went to stay there.
This begs the question what exactly is inappropriate about young people staying in the home of other young people? This situation occurs all the time in homes all over Australia without people crying ‘sexual grooming’ and ‘paedophilia’.
I’ve certainly accused Benhayon of grooming behaviour, but we have not accused him of paedophilia. We’ve merely questioned his suspicious behaviour. And if any of us behaved that way the cult would be all over us.
It appears that from Lance Martin’s point of view and perpetuated by Esther Rockett on her blogs, the mere presence of girls anywhere near Serge Benhayon implies sexual impropriety and grooming behaviour despite there being absolutely no evidence to support such a view.
Benhayon’s sexual impropriety and grooming behaviour is not implied, it’s overt, as outlined above and as observed by numerous people who have had contact with Benhayon and UM.
