(Based on blog posts in 2004, sergey_w_love may have finally found the motivation needed to leave an Ohio chapter of UBF to which he had apparently been psychologically bound and through which he had been psychologically and spirtually abused. The following is a comment by sergey_w_love at another UBF member's blog.)
... hey, thank you for your logg, ... I am agree with you, ... frankly speaking, I myself had bad experiences in UBF, and I left UBF, ... but I came back, ... knowing that no matter how bad some people may be, ... and no matter how abbusive UBF may be, there is a lot of good people, people who maybe don't know much about bad things that happend to some members, who live in faith, happy, and who willing to share their joy with others ...
it is very easier for me to be in UBF after everything I went through, ... even to the point of commiting suicide because of the guilt that was planted in me by the leaders, ... (to prevent confusion, I am always was open to commit suicide, not that UBF lead people to do it) But it is not that easy for people who know nothing about spiritual abuse.
And the thing is that even when a lot of people knows all that, they cannot do anything, ... in fact there is so many of them who tryes, but there is no results, ... just everyone who try to change any bad thing, he/she occused to go against God [accused of opposing God for suggesting changes in UBF], and in one word just kicked out from UBF.
I was told so many times to leave UBF, because of my open mind, and free thinking, ... but I do know one thing, ... that there is a purpose for me to be here, considering all things that led me here. And how someone can say go away, when he/she did not brought me in, ... they have no spiritual right to do so, ... and second UBF is campus organization, it is not a sacred place, it is open for anyone, ... and if they will restrict some ppeople to come, then they may have some problems, being a student organization, after all the information about UBF that gathered around the world, ... after all viktimes [victims], (and I am sure everyone of them will testify about their experiences) ... the problems may come to the end, ... new court opinions will come out, and all who fight against spiritual abuse, will make a big step forward, ... and even after all imunity that churches in america have, ... there is many churches that were brought to court of law, ...

Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
After all bad things that I said about UBF ( and I am not ashamed to say it) ... I am in UBF, I know my purpose here, and I am very happy to be here, because I chooss to, considering everything I know ...
