The webmaster for both FRF and CAN is Dave Hinkley. He claims to be a Christian. His own site is


which provides free hosting for churches and religious organizations. The site is prominently linked to by FRF. This is one of the many ways in which FRF sucks in people.

Something interesting:

Relioustolerance.org, which may be independent of CAN/FRF, but which is consistently promoted by both, says:

        The "new" Cult Awareness Network is operated the "Foundation for
        Religious Freedom," a California corporation. It is controlled by a
	multi-faith Board of Directors, whose current chairperson is Dr. George
	Robertson, a Baptist minister:

Pastor George Robertson, DD Vice President & Chairman, Christian Education Department, Maryland Bible College & Seminary, 6023 Moravia Park Rd., Baltimore, MD 21206

He is also the Corporate Affairs Administrator and Staff Pastor with the Greater Grace World Outreach Church. This church "can be traced to 1964 and the organization of a 15-member group at a Baptist church in Wiscasset, Maine. "The Church is a fundamentalist Christian Church with a strong belief in the authority of the Bible." (1)

This church was in the news a few years back. Watchman Fellowship, a Christian apologetics and countercult ministry, has details:

	Greater Grace World Outreach, Carl H. Stevens, Jr. Baltimore, MD:
        Formerly "The Bible Speaks." Courts required church to return funds to
	millionaire contributor for unethical and illegal actions. Allegedly
        practices mind control and shepherding. See "Shepherding."

"Greater Grace" Influence In Nashville? http://www.watchman.org/stevens.htm

This is the same Robertson who founded "Friends of Freedom," an organization funded by the Church of Scientology:


and of course Robertson is listed as one them "experts" CAN refers people to:


I think we ought to keep a closer eye on these folks and their organizations.
