ATI Home for Aged
OAKBROOK, Illinois -- The Institute in Basic Life Principles recently announced it will purchase a facility to convert into a retirement center for aging ATIA parents.

IBLP has long taught against retirement, so residents will be expected to contribute to the care and upkeep of the facility by doing the housekeeping, cooking and cleaning, and security.

A perpetual Basic Seminar will air on an in-house television network.The facility will feature conferences in marriage, healthy living, and how to convince adult children to enroll their families in ATIA.

I heard you can subsidize your stay by donating your house to the Institue instead of paying the standard $100 per week to work and stay there.

My parents would get kicked out of this lovely Oak Brook Manor for watching movies and listening to my music. My brother is also in a punk band in L.A.

They'd try to say my parents were sinning for listening to music that their own children play, write and produce.

Awesome Bill!

Love that comment about trying to convince adult children to enroll families into ATI! That is HILARIOUS!

And just imagine the profits ATI *could* rake in from parents of exers who so completely rejected all of their parents' (uh, Gothard's...) teaching so as to abandon their parents in a home like this.

Who knew?

omg.. that's nuts! i'm sure the parents would form a support group for their "worldly" children that aren't serving at a t.c!

What! You don't know who Ken Pierpont is? This is shocking, and I'm afraid it will have to be reported to Doctor Gothard immediately.

Well, I've never met him but I've seen his websites. And I was wondering if he is next in line to take over the bill gothard ministry?

This has absolutly nothing to do with anything refered to in this thread, but i have a quistion for x-ers. My family never got into ATI but I know quite a few ATI families and have had some rather, should I say,disapointing expierinces with some of them. I have noticed their obsession with walkie-talkies. What's up with that, and do all of them think that they are some kind of super cool?

In reply to the previous post:
ATI families like walkie-talkies because
(1) They work for keeping large families in touch
(2) "Authorities" at IBLP functions always use them
(3) They're popular at ALERT and we all know how cool ALERT is...

In response to the last post:

1. If your family is SOOOOO large that you need your own frequency for your set of walkie-talkies, you might be an ATI family.

2. If you use the words "authority" and "IBLP" in the same sentence, you might be an ATI family.

3. If you truly believe in your heart that ALERT is cool, you ARE an ATI family!!!

All of you are wrong: walkie-talkies equals control.

ALERT is so NOT cool.

ALERT is just a bunch of religious nerds (sadly, those words can both be used in the same sentence to describe them) trying to be cool. Rarely do you find a guy who's been through ALERT and retained his...coolness.

Hey, my older brothers went through ALERT and they're pretty cool.... Granted they got out of ATI as soon as they turned 18.

ALERT is great and so are most of the people (minus the people runnin' the show). I have left plent of other comments about how ya'll are rude and mean and un-Christian to post awful things about ATI, but you've hit the nail on the head about the walkis (actually I love them! I got to use one while on staff at ALERT) and a couple of other things. Yes ALERT IS cool, bit's just the authorities that ruin the chances of good people workin' there (like myself...I was turned away because I wasn't "good" enough, but that doesn't scare me away. I'm still tryin' to go back) but it's a great ministry and I have some awesome friends there who are really close to me....

...and to continue with my thought in response to what you said about ALERT men....I know about 10 ALERT guys, maybe around 15-20 who have gone through basic, some who have graduated everything and now work on staff, who have "maintained their 'coolness'" so don't talk about them that way. A few of them are pretty close friends of mine and they're a bunch of the coolest guys I know!

Here is a something for all of you who haven't gone through ALERT and are just speaking on hearsay, a big majority of the guys who go to ALERT are not part of ATI. Some have never even heard of the program.
