Fresh Start Foundation ‘spreading hate’, say CSA survivors

Back in January, we noted that the Scottish “Fresh Start Foundation”, which bills itself as a voluntary organisation devoted to “CSA support, recovery, seeking truth & justice”, seemed to be attacking genuine survivors of sexual abuse, while pushing their own SRA-based agenda. The “Fresh Start Foundation”, much like Belinda McKenzie’s “Knight Foundation”, is not a…

Kim Noble: Another ‘star’ Sinason victim

We’ve written here often about the “Satanic panic”—often thought to have been abandoned in the mid-1990s, but currently undergoing a resurgence.
