    A Montana-based sect is fighting to remain viable, six months after the death of its “Mother,” the Jesus- channeling Elizabeth Clare Prophet.

    Several aspirants have tried to claim her mantle, but the sect’s council of elders found them all to be charlatans, and membership rolls have dwindled.

    The church was similarly challenged in 1990, when Mother forecast nuclear doomsday and financed the construction of large underground bunkers on a mountainside north of Yellowstone National Park (which are still available).

    The council is having trouble, especially, finding volunteers to transcribe the 22,000 hours of video and audio in which Mother set out the justifications for the sect.

    Ah, the Church Universal and Triumphant. The stories I could tell when they were my next door neighbors. They used to be close enough that I could hear their chant hut on a quiet summer night. HH

    Chant hut, oo ha ha!


    If she predicted nukulur wur 20 years ago and was sadly mistaken, why do they reject some of these "charlatans" who are just as wrong as the woman who claims to talk to Jesus????

    I would think, based on track record, you'd hire the mistaken guy over the perfect one.

    Hard to tell. It was incoherent, drunken jibberish...kind of like the crowd at a Cowboys game. HH
