Countries that 2x2s operate in
There are many countries in which the 2x2s operate their for-profit business. See links on right for the list of countries and details relevant to each one.
There are the most followers of the 2x2 religion in the United States. The cult started in Ireland and Scotland area because that's where 2x2 Founder William Irvine started. There are many followers in Australia and New Zealand too.
There is not a strong presence in Africa, but there are at least a couple dozen workers.
There are a quite a few workers and followers in South America.
Covering Up of History - Founder William Irvine
Moving the "2x2 gospel" from one country to another allowed the overseers to cover up the founder William Irvine. The workers conspired together to hide their past. With the common use of the INTERNET, however, many have learned about the 2x2 Founder and Mason William Irvine. The INTERNET has allowed overseas communications on an unprecedented scale and has allowed people to learn about the 2x2 religion news quickly as it happens around the world. See also Recent 2x2 News. For example, when Percy Watkins committed suicide, the 2x2s in the UK turned to overseas websites to find information that the overseers and workers would not tell them.
Moving Sex Offenders Out of Country to Avoid Prosecution
Moving a child sexual offender overseas puts children at adults at risk. Moving people across country borders means than many people in the target area don't know a workers reputation. Also, workers can flee one country in an attempt leave their crimes "behind" them. But they commonly commit new crimes in the new countries. The overseers have proved time and again that moving a sex offender from one field to the next solves nothing, but does create more problems. The way that the friends idolize foreign workers creates a very dangerous situation for children.
Workers Moving Money Across Borders
The fact that workers operate in many different countries is very important. For example, Ken Beckman told me that workers hid money and letters in clothes (sewing them inside clothes) as they went across borders. Workers moving money and documents overseas without reporting these large amounts may constitute a crime in many countries.
False Statements to Border Agents
Workers are required to get visas to go in and out of of countries to other countries. They have to declare whether it is for work or pleasure. Many workers have falsely declared their intentions in order to cloak the business nature of their for-profit business.
Failure to Register Religion with Governments
Many countries require religious organizations to register with the government. The workers don't like to admit they are a religious organization and have even argued in court that they are not ministers! See Jerome Frandle. As of yet, the 2x2s have registered in Vietnam as a religious organization, but have failed to register it properly now that the organization has split. It has been registered as a corporation, see Alberta for articles of incorporation.
