An email has been sent to members of the Stroudco Foodhub; the strapline is “Shopping made fair”.
Oliver Müller , (who I have personally briefly met, but not to discuss Steiner matters) has sent this out to explain what happened when he responded to a post I wrote on their facebook page, where I pointed out that it was ironic that a group who care so deeply about where their food comes from should be so ignorant, or unconcerned about what Bidoynamics is.
Most customers at Foodhub who buy the BD products do not know about the gruesome rituals and bizarre methods used by the anthroposophists to whom BD is so important, or that they are supporting people who are part of a group that harms children and vulnerable adults.
I have repeatedly asked for BD to be demonstrated in Stroud but no deal was possible with Bernard Jarman and his fellow skull-scrapers. It is just not going to happen unless I do it myself.
Anyway Oliver has done me a favour by sharing my concerns with his members and I agree that they should know about this matter.
They may come to the conclusion that it is not something they need to concern themselves with, but they would be wrong. They are indeed supporting a cult. I don’t remember calling it an evil cult but to the victims of Steiner practices it must seem that way.
I did not send my kids to a Steiner school by the way, nor did I attend one myself. I simply want to provide information about anthroposophy to as many people as possible; once they know how bad it is they can decide for themselves whether it is something they want to get involved with.
Forewarned is forearmed.
The commenters on the Stop Steiner facebook page expressed views about Steiner people, I think, rather than Foodco customers. BD is indeed ‘homeopathic gardening’ as explained here. I know nothing at all about the Foodhub relationship with the school they used to operate from, but I guess that commenter had her reasons for saying those things.
I notice that in comments on this blog Oliver said at first that he didn’t want to hide behind the anonymity of Foodhub, but later said he would prefer his name not to be in the post. He was the one who made this personal, not me, and I am afraid his initial response has rather backfired.
I am serious when I say I don’t want to upset people, I really don’t. I just want people to be informed about Steiner practices so they can make informed decisions. I ask people to act responsibly in their buying choices, and not to support a cult masquerading as an eco-friendly community group.
