Have you ever known anyone in a cult?
#1
I have. Growing up there was this family that went to a church, but it was really a cult. It took a long time for them to recover from their experiences.
Just recently a roommate of mine said he was in a cult when he lived in AZ and I just looked it up, it is pretty freaky.
They even have a section dedicated to explaining how they are not a cult.

Some people are just plain jealous of the accomplishments that our organization and community have achieved. Some demonize us simply because they do not agree with our beliefs on spiritual reality.

Some ex-community members, who chose to not live up to these standards, like to use the word “cult” to identify those in "our group" who do choose to live by certain ethics and values.

No, I don't think I have. Something may come to me but it seems like I would remember something like that.

Sometimes I feel sorry for those who are so easily led.

We have tons of cults here in Az (baptist, catholic, jewish, hindu, muslim etc...). As well as hippie communes. Sounds like "your group" would fit right in here considering you have "ex-community members" who slander your "group." I don't think anyone ever would identify themselves as belonging to a cult, until they leave said cult. Maybe I'm not the best person to ask since my "faith" lies firmly in the scientific arena. Reproducible results make me a "believer."

There are a lot of cults in AZ! What is up with that? Of course I have never entered a search for "Cults in WA state either. We had the famous JZ Night of Ramtha here.

Also, I made a mistake. My house mate was not in the cult, they worked at their restaurant and it closed down. And they realized that the owners were cult members.

It was the Global Community Communications Alliance cult.
