Mysha BS: What do you think cults have in common? (106* d) RE: BS: What do you think cults have in common? 06 Sep 20


Steve: No problem, I usually don't understand most slang here anyway, thus no damage done. Yes, I know that some cults are suspected of being wolves, but I didn't want to add that to the things cults have in common as leaders don't themselves have to be the venerated entity. Think of the cult of the Virgin Mother. Likewise, some cults tie there members tighter and others lighter; that's not all that different from local churches, convents, and the like. And members of major religion, just like those of cults, may see themselves as chosen vessels, as they are promised to become chosen at the end of their suffering. Thus this is likely true in all cases, just that the "Protectors of the Vision of the Blessed Robby" may stress it more to stand out from the main religion.

It's not that I don't agree with your ideas; it's just that the original question wasn't very precise and each is interpreting it in his own way.

Bye
Mysha
