-- when Plinio died in 1995, TFP got the name but no money; Heralds of the Gospel got the money but not the name; slave # 11 aka Atila Guimaraes, got no money and no name. Also in 1996 a powerful expose of the TFP cult was published and Atila decided to get out of Dodge. He went to Montebello, California along with Marian Hovart, to launch another Plino- worshiping group. Many of their resident staff work spreading their lies all over the internet, from Reddit to Cathinfo.
They have many more groups under various names.
The Plinio- worshiping cult has been condemned numerous times by Catholic Bishops. Bishop Mayer, who was at first deluded into believing that they were Catholic, supported them for over 30 years and then after numerous parents came to him sorrowfully reporting that they had lost their sons to this cult, he came to his senses. He publicly called them an "anti-Catholic, anti-clerical, heretical sect" which no Catholic should join.
Also "The Council of Brazilian Bishops advised Catholics not to join TFP due to "its esoteric character, its religious fanaticism, the personality cult of the founder and of his mother, the abuse of the name of the Virgin Mary.
