Enthusiasts Threaten UFoundation

A few days ago I got a call from Gard Jameson, who was concerned that the Urantia Foundation had received a "Cease and Desist Order" from a follower of Ron Besser, some dude from Poughkeepsie, no less (I don't have his name), who was using the recent transmissions from Ron (regarding the updated UB that's coming out in 2016, etc.) and calling for the UF to submit to the new order of things. Gard was concerned whether there might be some real personal danger to the Trustees, given how extreme this guy's missive sounded. In response I sent a note disclaiming my connection to any of this just to set the record straight with Gard, and offering to find out more about the Poughkeepsie mystery man. I asked Gard to release more details to us so we could track this down. The Trustees have a meeting next Thursday after which I hope he'll release more info. (He mentioned the guy's name but I didn't write it down nor do I remember it, since it was unfamiliar.) More extremist actions of this sort seem likely in the future, given the incoherence of our "movement" and its lack of self-governance and public accountability; I suppose we can laugh at our many embarrassments and take joy in our many achievements.
