Daily Mail’s Tom Kelly & Adam Luck Exposed & Discredited For Attacking Paul Waugh & Lighthouse International

This page profiles the two ‘journalists’ who colluded with predatory trolls on Reddit to publish a malicious, completely biased and false Daily Mail article about Lighthouse International Group in April 2022.

We will outline the truth about these individuals through tweets from our head of HR Paul Waugh who was targetted by these professional predatory trolls. If you have been a victim of clickbait press attacks please get in touch. We are building a groundswell of individuals and organisations to hold these individuals and the Daily Mail accountable in all ways and means possible, legal, criminal, judicial and publicly.

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 S. 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 S. 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 S. 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

Tweets From Paul Waugh About Tom Kelly & Adam Luck of The Daily Mail…

For 18 years, Paul Waugh and Lighthouse have worked tirelessly to help young people come out of toxic, abusive and controlling families to reach their potential. These toxic families, jealous of losing control of their children and siblings, have relentlessly attacked Lighthouse International Group, Paul Waugh and the good people here online and through the media. Tom Kelly, Adam Luck, The Daily Mail and its sources are once and for all being held accountable as we set the record straight with the truth behind these toxic families and individuals. 

Why Are We Holding Tom Kelly & Adam Luck Accountable

Since the two Daily Mail articles about Lighthouse were published Tom Kelly and Adam Luck have stood back and watched us hold our constructive saboteurs publicly accountable. This is because they believe they are untouchable. However we are proving that they ought to be held accountable with those they have endorsed for a number of reasons:

  1. The publication of the Daily Mail article about Lighthouse is the part of the malicious smear campaign that affected our children the most. Innocent children started to fear for their physical safety. 

2. Tom Kelly and Adam Luck have also directly and indirectly affected the vulnerable people we work with at Lighthouse; sabotaging their efforts to heal from challenges like childhood trauma and sexual abuse.

3. In writing the article about Lighthouse International Group Tom Kelly and Adam Luck have been the most complicit in the damage caused to us, our business and our children.

4. By siding with their sources and those they associate with, Tom Kelly and Adam Luck have endorsed and fuelled malevolent acts such as hate speech, child abuse and sexual abuse. 

5. The article written by Tom Kelly and Adam Luck was based on nothing more than hearsay, bias and prejudice; with 45 false statements that need to be proved.

6. Tom Kelly ignored multiple invitations to meet with Paul Waugh and his family because Mr Kelly knew that he could not look in the eyes of Mr Waugh and his children with any level of self-respect and dignity. 

7. Tom Kelly and Adam Luck would never have written such a libellous and poorly-written article about a multinational conglomerate. They wrote this about us because they are bullies and believed we didn’t have the resources to stand up to them and the Daily Mail.

8. Both Tom Kelly and Adam Luck believe they are above the law and have special privileges as members of the press by citing ‘public interest’ to justify writing what they want without evidence. They have printed something that was neither in the public interest nor in the interest of the public. 

9. We have strong reason to believe that this article came from nepotism and more specifically through connections to the malignantly toxic families who have abused people at Lighthouse for years.

10. Our comprehensive response was mocked by Tom Kelly and Adam Luck both in the article itself and to those who have been assaulting us online for over 20 months.

11. Tom Kelly and Adam Luck have strayed unethically from the standards set by IPSO and the Global Investigative Journalism Network.

Evidence of Abuse Towards Lighthouse International Group

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.

These people were directly in contact with Tom Kelly at the Daily Mail and were sources for the article directly and indirectly. 

We have strong reason and evidence to believe the Daily Mail article was written as a favour for a toxic family member of one of our Lighthouse Associates who was against them being involved with 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.
