My hatred of cults is far greater than my dislike of religion simply because a cult has the ability to become a religion if not stopped soon enough. Cults are very fascinating for this reason; they can end up becoming the catalyst that will change many events to come. It’s very rare that this will happen but Scientology seems to have already gained some sort of footing, it would be interesting to see what will become of it in 200 years, if it’s even still here.
This article speaks on one cult in particular, Paul Twitchell’s Eckankar religious movement. The whole store concerning you and your various happening with them was quite interesting. It outright proves the lengths many of these whack jobs will go in order to preserve some semblance of power.
