Respect for your "pen pal" attitude...don't know if I could be that forgiving. But kudos to you.
I share your interest in cults. I want to know why did they join, what was the hidden purpose and when/if the member(s) left. I have a friend that
has family property near Waco, about ten miles from where the Branch Davidian Compound used to stand. We would drive from Dallas down there on the
weekends in the late 80's early 90's (yeah, I am a "get off the lawner" - 52 years young - so you are a babe in the woods to me!) and when we would go
to the tiny, little grocery store in that tiny little town, you would always run into a couple of Davidians.
For the record, they were were always very pleasant and friendly. I was shocked when Waco happened. Especially the loss of the kids in that fire.
Lot's of people in the Waco area and in the country near there questioned the raid. It was on TV 24/7 in Central and North Texas. IMHO. Such a
screw up by TPTB (or, was it?)
I also dive into the entire Manson Family rabbit hole. So it seems we have some commonalities.
Welcome and look forward reading your posts!
