    I saw a show about cults this weekend. Lots of mind control and child abuse.

    It was about the FLDS and the Aggressive Christianity Missions Training Corps in Sacramento.

    What a bunch of whack jobs.

    Sure was. We had this ritual where ever Saturday morning we would meet in a field to sacrifice paper in the name of John Moses Browning. My cult rocked.

    Thought about starting my own cult, but thought I was thinking on a small scale. I need to think more on the lines of world domination.

    All kidding aside, I had a relative who hooked up with the Moonies when I was in college. My aunt & uncle spent a fortune having him "abducted" and deprogrammed. It was a sad time. HH

    I've been involved with several cults, both as a leader and follower. I made more money as a leader, but I had more fun as a follower.:rofl:

    One man is a nutjob. Two men are a cult. Three are a cafeteria church. Four are a religion.

    The only difference between a cult and a religion are.... wait, I'm sure it will come to me....

    A religion is a popular cult. A cult is an unpopular religion. HH
