Dangerous Persuasions on Discovery ID

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else been watching this?

Last night's episode was about a fundamentalist church turned cult, Covenant, Sword, and Arm of the Lord, which was in Arkansas. This couple was lured in when the wife was pregnant and they invited them to live in their commune where they live organically, have natural childbirths, raise their children together, etc and it then escalates to a sort of militia.

The whole series is about how normal people get sucked into these types of groups. Next Wednesday the episode is called "Diabolical Discipline" and the description says a woman follows a missionary to California where things turn violent.

I saw the promo for the show about the cult in Arkansas. I was watching Top Chef and if the penultimate episode of this season of Top Chef had not been on, I might not have remembered to change the channel from I Remember Mama on TCM. I hope to catch a rerun or maybe it's on On Demand. I will have to check that out.

I watch some of the shows on ID and they have a lot of murders that involve very religious people. I think that sociopaths might like the hierarchical nature of religion because there is a clear cut way that people must act. You follow the rules and people automatically think that your a good person.

I haven't been watching the recent episodes, but I did watch the episode about a former Scientologist . Thanks for the heads up batwing about the episode descriptions. The episode about the Christian commune will air again on ID on Saturday morning at 10 am eastern.

Oh cool thanks! I was trying to find the rerun and somehow missed that.

It's so easy to get sucked in by a charismatic leader and then have it all go bad. I will have to catch the rerun.

I watched that particular episode last night, as well as the one about the Mormon woman who got involved with someone who claimed to be the newest prophet. It just shows how easily someone that is religious can be manipulated by a charismatic person or church leader who begins a cult.

The Scientology episode is on RIGHT NOW! If you get ID and haven't seen it, it's well worth the watch, IMO. I know we have a thread specifically on this ep, but I can't find it atm.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
