Misinformation - How a Religious Community Gets Harassed by Authorities Spurred on by FECRIS. Do “Sect Experts” Use Controversial Deprogramming Methods to Turn Children against their own Parents? ... The background of the large-scale operation: On August 16th, 2013, Sabine Riede, the “sect commissioner” of Sekten-Info NRW (a member organization of FECRIS, see also the comprehensive expert study about FECRIS, PDF-Document) along with the RTL reporter Wolfram Kuhnigk got the District Court of Nördlingen involved in order to take action against the “Twelve Tribes.”

... FOREF has put together a list of controversial “sect experts” who stood out negatively in the case of the “Twelve Tribes” by spreading typical “sect stereotypes” and unsubstantial blanket condemnations of New Religious Movements:

Sabine Riede, Protestant theologian and director of Sekten-Info NRW, a member organization of FECRIS.

Rev. Dr. Wolfgang Behnk, “sect commissioner” (Sektenbeauftragter) of the Lutheran Church in Bavaria. More information on Reverend Behnk.

Dr. Michael Utsch, Protestant theologian and psychotherapist, since 1997 the speaker of the Protestant Center for Religious and Ideological Issues (Evangelische Zentralstelle für Weltanschauungsfragen).

Klaudia Hartmann, Catholic director of the Department for Religious and Ideological Issues of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Augsburg (Referat für Religions- und Weltanschauungsfragen der römisch-katholischen Diözese Augsburg)
