I know exactly what you're talking about.
I have no love for those you mentioned. It would be dishonourable to myself to think in terms like that.
Those guys are looooong gone, and look how they affect you still. Do you believe in Christ?

Many people want the truth until they hear it. Often times the truth violates the construct in which they exist self created
I've heard this from many people, but I don't agree with it. Nor do I think you will find even one instance where people were lied to then found out the truth and somehow felt wronged by knowing the truth.
Please find a historical example. Because I believe this is simply a false assumption that many people make without having any facts to back it up.
"Many secret societies have lived by the concept, "don't give your pearls to swine". (Mathew 7:6) What I fail to understand at this juncture in society is why you would continue to live by such philosophy. It is obvious to anyone who has studied Gnosticism and the Occult, who also understands the esoteric meaning of the scriptures and occult symbolism, that the dirtiest of pigs already has possession of the pearls."
"For those who believe in the true light of wisdom, can't you see that your inaction allows the dirty swine to keep the sheep in darkness?
You know the flaws in the religions, you understand the methods of the swine, and only you have the power to make a difference.
Time to invest your coin in the bank of sheep who wait desperately for salvation.
If the scriptures are true, what are you waiting for?"
"We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature,who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil."
1 Corinthians 3:1-3
"Brothers and sisters, I could not address you as people who live by the Spirit but as people who are still worldly—mere infants in Christ. I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans?"
