  1. I hadn't heard of this one before but the "Camp David" cult in New Zealand seems to have had some very familiar features. One of the children raised in the cult has been interviewed for this article about growing up in the cult and its aftermath. More stories here.

    Heaven's Gate podcast

    I just started listening to this podcast which is available on Apple iTunes and Stitcher. It's a multi-episode podcast about the Heaven's Gate cult. It's pretty detailed and the host Glynn Washington was raised in a Doomsday Christian type cult and that was part of the reason he was interested in the Heaven's Gate story.
  3. Because the news wasn't full of enough weird, creepy news: https://www.buzzfeed.com/jimderogatis/parents-told-police-r-kelly-is-keeping-women-in-a-cult?utm_term=.iqA44w0Nz7#.ppLKKZXLNq Since the women involved are adults and can join any sort of organization they want, there's not much that can be done from a legal perspective unless Kelly has done something demonstrably illegal. I guess we'll see how this story unfolds.

    The Path

    Hulu has started streaming its own production. It is called The Path and it seems to be about a cult. Is anyone watching it?
  5. I just saw this while reading news articles online, and found it rather interesting. It's not very often that the Brethren are in the media, however, it is not at all surprising that they're willing to make use of funds they are not entitled to. http://www.smh.com.au/national/education/exclusive-brethren-federal-labor-calls-for-investigation-into-funding-of-extremist-cult-schools-20160707-gq0jq5

    Growing in Grace ... cult?

    Unfortunately, the video of a 3 year old getting a tattoo showed up in my FB feed. I had to google and find out WTH is this all about. Is anyone else familiar with this sect- Growing in Grace? It would appear the leader/founder at one time professed to being both God AND the Antichrist.... among other things. I had never heard of them before today... but still digging for more info. Some of these links are OLD. Here a few links - TW for max grossness on the tattoo video. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/31/mother-tattoo-son_n_2591132.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/José_Luis_de_Jesús http://edition.cnn.com/2007/US/02/16/miami.preacher/ Fantastic, another group ruining lives...
  7. Terri Hoffman (now Keanely) pulled herself up by her bootstraps to become a self-made New Age guru in the 1980s and early 90s. The problem is that her followers, children, and various husbands had a nasty had of committing suicide and getting in fatal accidents, and conveniently leaving all of their money and property to her. Of course this made a lot of people very suspicious, but she has never been charged with anything other than a white collar offense. Either Keanely is the unluckiest woman ever or she is the perfect murderer. http://www.dmagazine.com/publications/d-magazine/1982/december/rise-and-fall-of-a-north-dallas-cult-conscious-development (very long, but very informative article from 1982) https://books.google.com/books?id=bC4EAAAAMBAJ&lpg=PA154&ots=XAFa6Zf2gk&dq=%22the%20curse%20of%20the%20black%20lords%22&pg=PA94#v=onepage&q&f=false (another very long Texas Monthly article from 1990 with even more victims added to the mix) https://www.reddit.com/r/UnresolvedMysteries/comments/35m6t6/the_mysterious_deaths_that_surround_terri_hoffman/ (the TL;DR version from amateur reddit sleuths) Keanely is still alive and kicking and doing some kind of New Age photography: http://www.heavenandearthphoto.com/aboutartist.html

    Worldwide Church of God

    What do yall know about Worldwide Church of God and what are yalls thoughts and opinions on it? I have a cousin who married into a family from that church, but no one in my family knows a whole lot about it. I know once a year they take a trip (I think it is referred to as the Feast) somewhere? I know they have gone to Branson before and this year they are going to Galveston. One of her FB friends posted about considering St. Edward's Island in Canada. We used to think the Duggars had something to do with that denomination because of the connections to Big Sandy...because there are not a whole lot of reasons to go to Big Sandy, TX. My cousin has three kids and she does homeschool. I don't know what materials she uses, but my mom is a public elementary school teacher and she said they aren't ATI, but they are religious and not good. A few years ago my (Southern Baptist) pastor did a Sunday night series on different cults that seem like Christianity...I was too young to remember it, but my mom says that WCG was included in it. Any info?
