Former 2x2 Oregon Overseer

Howard used to be the overseer of Oregon. He chose Ralph Sines to be the next overseer, but Harold Bennett took over things to some people's dismay.

Charismatic Preaching

Howard Mooney had charisma and commanded a certain respect and admiration that drove the cult. Something that Ralph Sines and Harold Bennett could never have. Ralph Sines is now dead too. Harold Bennett is trying to run the show in Oregon now.

Why Howard Mooney Enjoyed Being a Worker

Howard told me that he had no desire towrds women. I've heard this is true of gays, and I don't understand it. Howard told me that he was glad he never married and that he became a worker. Few know that Howard got sick and had to leave the work early on, but later recovered to go back into the work. He was glad he was a worker because: he didn't have bills to pay, no house to keep up, and no wife that would get old and ugly. I thought it was good he didn't get married too because if anyone heard that, they wouldn't want to marry him.

Howard told me once that some kids had asked him if he became a worker because he couldn't find a wife. That was funny. In his last few years, Howard was very demanding and required other workers to take care of him and fix him meals that he liked. Jay Wicks made several comments about this, to the effect that if people are hard to get along with when they're not older, it just gets worse in their last days.

I feel sorry for all the old workers who have put so much effort into their 2x2 work and have neglected a relationship with God. After getting out of the cult, I see now how these people could study for preaching but not have a prayer life nor a relationship with God themselves. It was all about getting people to profess, not about a relationship with God and loving others.


Howard Mooney was ruthless if you believed in Jesus Christ. There was an elder who believed that people who believed in Jesus Christ were saved whether they went to meetings or not. Howard had the meeting taken out of his home.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
