Exposing The Lies Behind The Daily Mail’s Article On Lighthouse International

For 18 years, Paul S. Waugh and Lighthouse International Group have worked tirelessly to help people reach their God-given potential. Tragically, many of those we work with have come from toxic, abusive & controlling families.

In these cases, jealous of losing narcissistic control of their children and siblings who are growing and standing up for themselves, these families have taken to relentlessly and vindictively attacking Lighthouse and Paul, both online and through the press.

A man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.” Matthew 10:36

Very importantly, this public assault only began after a large group of Lighthouse partners became Christians and we have since learned to expect persecution because of this. They have deliberately sought to deceitfully smear our reputations and character assassinate Paul and the good people here.

We have all the evidence to prove these claims false, but cannot release most of it publicly, due to data protection laws. We have challenged them to take us to court, but they do nothing. This site will help set the record straight with the truth behind these false claims.

“All who desire to live a godly life in Jesus Christ will be persecuted.” 2 Timothy 3:11-12

Standing For Christ & Truth

Since the first cynical and destructive assaults on Lighthouse International Group and the character of its people began in February 2021, we have continually tried to engage in rational discussions for a peaceful resolution with those attacking us. Sadly all efforts were ignored and even mocked by our assailants.

We Christian people of Lighthouse have instead been persecuted, defamed and lied about through baseless, unproven and malicious falsehoods spread first online, then pushed to a click-bait hungry press to gain some semblance of credibility.

Along with malignantly toxic family members are ex-clients who resisted our growing Christianity and left Lighthouse, but then sought to hold us hostage for illegitimate refunds by threatening our reputations, families and livelihoods. However, our Lord Jesus Christ continues to sustain and protect us through His wonderful grace and we pray constantly for our persecutors knowing truth will prevail.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven”  Matt 5:43-45

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God”– Matthew 5:9

4 Reasons Behind The Daily Mail Article On Lighthouse International…

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.

Matthew 5:10-12

1. Coming To Christ Brought Persecution 

In the year preceding this article and attacks, a large group of us including Paul Waugh became Christian. We have learnt this is one of the biggest reasons for us being smeared in the press & online by malignantly toxic families and individuals.

We have served over 70,000 people in the past and had hardly any complaints whatsoever. Now we face baseless claims about all of us rooted in the hatred for our Christianity. 

2. Controlling Toxic Families & Individuals Attack Us Online 

– As we grew in ourselves and our Lord Jesus Christ, three groups of people came together to harass us. Controlling family members, ex-business partners & spurned mentees actively sought out each other and anyone with grievances against Lighthouse.
These anti-Christian false accusations & racist attacks were made online on Reddit for 21 months.
They sought to use the Daily Mail as a platform to legitimise their malicious campaign of constructive sabotage. We pray for these people every day.

3. No Evidence For Their Claims

 – Despite numerous requests the Daily Mail have provided no evidence for their claims in this article beyond heresay and a manipulated recording. 

– We have thousands of hours of recordings, transcripts and emails which completely refute these claims and render them false but we cannot release our evidence due to data protection.

There is a potential personal connection between a senior member of the Mail’s staff and a sibling of one of our Associate Partners. If confirmed, this is a potential conspiracy of corruption and malicious act of defamation by the Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail did no serious investigation or fact-checking. They hung the responsibility for the ‘accusations’ in the article on the shoulders of their sources.

4. IPSO Are Now Actively Investigating The Daily Mail & Its Sources.

– The Independent Press Standards Organisation have now accepted our complaint and evidence which completely renders this article and it’s sources claims false. We await the outcome of this investigation to clear our good name. 

– The article has been used as a weapon by convicted criminals we have never met to harass us as they have become obsessed with Paul Waugh & Lighthouse. 

– They hurt and nearly destroyed many sensitive and honest people here. This continues daily despite increasing police intervention.

– Despite being the most targeted by these assailants, Paul Waugh has stated on numerous occasions that he would be there to help any ex-partners and family members if their physical safety was at risk and offered to meet them numerous times to reconcile.

– We continue to pray for these people every day despite their hate towards us.

But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven..

Matthew 5:43-45

How The Daily Mail Targeted Lighthouse International…

In all this, they are surprised that you do not run with them in the same excesses of debauchery, and they slander you;

Peter 4:4

 As a mentoring, coaching and counselling community, we launched this campaign because over the last two years we’ve been maliciously attacked by a small group of bitter ex-business partners and clients constructively sabotaging our lives, families and business online. We have endured religious persecution, racism, hate crimes and attacks on our children. This culminated in a fabricated Daily Mail article designed to destroy us. Far from destroying us it gave us the opportunity to learn from it, become stronger as a team and in turn help others.

54% of UK Adults Distrust The Daily Mail & Tabloid Press

“They’ve [Daily Mail] mastered the art of click bait, they’ve mastered the art of hyped up headlines, they’ve also mastered the art….of running stories that simply aren’t true. And that’s why Wikipedia decided not to accept them as a source anymore.”

– Jimmy Wales, Co-Founder, Wikipedia

“…for once, someone has had the courage to question their probity and their honesty and, generally speaking, if anyone does that with a paper like the Daily Mail, however much they may go on about freedom of speech, no one is allowed the freedom of speech to question the Daily Mail. If you do, you will be trashed, and that’s what’s happened again and again and again to me and to anyone else who has dared to question the Daily Mail.”

Evidence of Abuse Towards Lighthouse International Group

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. James 1:12

The Daily Mail article about Lighthouse International Group is part of a malicious online smear campaign orchestrated by malignantly toxic people in operation since February 2021. This is some of what they have to say about us….

“I don’t give a flying monkey’s fuck about anything Paul Stephen Waugh says. Literally everything out of his mouth is complete bullshit. He’s so full of it if you gave him an enema you could bury him in a matchbox.”

“LIG and Associates – WE are coming for you”

“Monsters don’t exist but sadly Paul Stephen Waugh does, and that makes the world a shittier place to be. You are the abuser.”

“The predominant South African Strain of the Lighthouse 20 Virus has mutated into an Indian Variant. The Delta Variant originated with the Singh brothers [Jai & Sukh] and has been rapidly spreading through the UK.”

“It’s not just the Daily Mail… Everyone with the capacity for basic logic, and the ability to form simple ideas into coherent sentences, thinks that the output of Lighthouse International Group is endless, meaningless bullshit.”

We have offered many opportunities to meet and discuss any grievances with us in public, but these vengeful people continue to snipe from the shadows hiding behind pseudonyms. 


Our Demand For Evidence From The Daily Mail

Paul Stephen Waugh and Lighthouse International Group demand that the Daily Mail provide full and objective evidence of the facts and its fact checking processes that back up and substantiate the accusations, claims, insinuations and statements referred to below and their related points. As of 5th October 2022, zero verifiable and legitimate proof has been provided for any of the points below and related points, where this is required. 

It’s important for the Daily Mail to note that we at Lighthouse International Group have substantial and tangible evidence, in various formats, for the fact that all of these sources have misconstrued facts, lied, withheld key information and context, have arguably attempted to blackmail Lighthouse and have all been challenged and instructed to take Mr Waugh and/or our company to court over these claims. This has been provided to you in part in our ‘Response To Allegations Against Lighthouse International’ document. However the vast majority of evidence that we have is covered by data protection, which your sources refuse to give us permission to use, however this will be revealed when this inevitably ends up in court as it seems destined to be.

4 Facts The Daily Mail Article Left Out Of Their Article On Lighthouse International Group

There are very significant facts and crucial pieces of information omitted in this article or that have been prejudicially manipulated against Lighthouse International Group. For example:

  • Ongoing attempts at resolution have been totally ignored by these sources: Long standing offers for these accusers to present evidence and resolve grievances with us have been unilaterally dismissed and even mocked by them.

  • A compassionate refund offer was rudely ignored: A refund was offered, purely on compassionate grounds, to one of the main sources, but they subsequently and rudely ignored this for 3 months, which is not disclosed in the article.

  • Key connections are deliberately hidden: The paper has hidden that two of the named sources have a long-term friendship where one supported the other’s involvement in Lighthouse International Group which completely dismisses their accusations of coercion.

  • A private recording has been manipulated with clear bias: Crucial context to the audio recording of Paul Waugh (in the Mail Online version) was left absent in order to enhance the negative impression it makes as shown in this article here.

All these factors will have left Daily Mail readers with very misinformed, prejudicially influenced and extremely damning impressions of both Paul Waugh and Lighthouse International Group.
