G’Day World #335 – Mercy Ministries Survivor “Vickie”

Today’s show is a continuation of the examination I’ve been doing around the relationship and practices of Gloria Jean’s Coffee, Hillsong Church and Mercy Ministries. Today’s guest is a former resident of Mercy Ministries in the United States. She spent 7 months inside Mercy about 8 years ago and is still today too frightened of them to use her real name, so she is using the alias “Vickie Lucas”. Vickie tells me about how she entered Mercy trying to find help for her bulimia nervosa condition but instead of psychological and clinical treatment, she was subjected to exorcisms, neglect and emotional abuse. She talks about how she was chastised in public by Mercy founder Nancy Alcorn, who claims to be a lifelong celibate, for getting her haircut – apparently according to Mercy that’s a clear sign she is possessed by demons making her into a lesbian.

The quotes contained in this show by Nancy Alcorn and Peter Irvine are taken from this video by The Cynic Sage.

  1. Hey Cameron, just wanna say awesome interview, and thanks for using my “The Two Faces of Mercy Ministries” video, but to be fair, the footage from Nancy’s speech came from a video uploaded by a video-maker called Aedralin:

    Oh, and BTW, can I upload this to youtube? I’ve already started making the vid and dividing it into sections, so how ’bout it? 🙂

  2. LOL, sorry Cynic, I sent you an email reply. I gather you didn’t get it? Anyway, yes, great stuff, go ahead!
