Re:How bad is the CAI in other countries?

I will try to answer you briefly. To your heading: About the same. Scott was - as you may know - rather "militaristic" in the way he organised the "church". It may be "worse" in the countries near pastors/"senior officers", who may be more keen to "set the teaching through". Those countries would be Australia and Scotland primarily, but also Germany (where several members tend to be very loyal to "the teaching") as well as north America due to the work of the "teaching department head" who is residing there.
Yes, they are brainwashed and so was I. While one is in it, one tends to blame oneself when being rebuked by the leadership, tinking one is at fault of have approached them in a wrong manner. It took some study of what Jesus did for us and that most "churches" get it wrong in applying Old Testament teaching which has been replaced by the new Covenant of faith in Him alone, being transformed from inside out.... and with that conviction, it still took quite a streak of "rebellion" (their definition) to go against their teaching. Their teaching is held above the Bible itself. I am in prayer that The Lord will open the eyes of them one by one. Book tip: "Twisted Scriptures" by by Mary Alice Chrnalogar.
My personal opinion is that "abuse" seems to have quitened down after the revealing events of 2006, the trial, the ABC documentary and all that followed. People still within are making comments like "things have changed now". The current leaders seem happy to settle at a lower standard as long as people are loyal and the money is coming in. This is only my personal thoughts though, and I may be wrong. I believe some will wake up from the lies they've been fed, but some may not. Let's pray for each invididual loved one still in there.
