I love my life at Gloriavale: Leavers’ claims are nonsense, exaggerated, offensive says life member
By Anna Leask | NZ Herald |
A Gloriavale mother of seven has slammed evidence given by women who left the community, saying their accounts of working conditions and their lives are incorrect, highly exaggerated, unrealistic and offensive.
And she says the “misleading” information about Gloriavale is hugely impacting the current community who just want to live their chosen lifestyle in peace.
Priscilla Stedfast, 35, is giving evidence today in the Employment Court at Christchurch before Chief Judge Christina Inglis.
“I choose to live at Gloriavale because I want to,” said Stedfast, the granddaughter of founder and convicted sex offender Neville Cooper aka Hopeful Christian.
