Definition of a CULT:
● a system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object.
● a relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange, weird, or sinister.
● a misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing.
● a person or thing that is popular or fashionable, especially among a particular section of society.
Michael Langone, ICSA’s Executive Director, defines a cult as “a group or movement exhibiting a great or excessive devotion or dedication to some person, idea, or thing, and employing unethically manipulative techniques of persuasion and control designed to advance the goals of the group’s leader, to the actual or possible detriment of members, their families, or the community”.
NOTICE TO READERS:
Readers are welcome to submit the full name of the Cult, and the Cult Founder, and most importantly must be supported by solid evidence, credible articles, and if possible victim testimonials. After due diligence, the cult and the cult founder may be listed in the latest Official Cult List.
Our only advice to Cult Fanatics is:
“Blind faith may lead to ignorant bliss, but it also lead to bad choices, and letting your religious leaders control and police all your key life decisions.” ~ Whisperer Robren
