A correspondent who is both cautious and reliable writes:
Way back in 1995 someone in UCG [circulated] the transcript of an interview with Rod Meredith by [Ewin] H Barnett & Sue Ann Pomicter, which includes this great quote:
One young smart aleck... one of their leaders, he said, “Mr Armstrong gave the whole Church a bucket of lies!”... When I realised that was their attitude, that those changes were heading in a total opposite direction from everything we had proved was the truth, then I knew it was time to leave.
The intro says the interview was done at the FOT at the Lake of the Ozarks, October 15th 1995, and "The first distribution of this interview will be on CompuServe, America Online and at least one of the Internet listservers. It may later appear in print."
I've never seen it online. It has some fairly hard-hitting (and fore-sighted) questions, including "What happens if Global is liquidated or changes ownership? Who inherits Global, so to speak?", "Some have noted that the Church Board is packed with your friends and relatives...", and the wonderful "Are you as rotten as people say you are?" Rod's reply includes "I have mellowed as I've gotten older." It's a great interview. I've searched online, but it's just not there.
That's all news to me! Anyone know anything about this interview or either of the named interviewers?
