I have a question about cults:
Does the media ever lie about cults?
I went to a retreat with the Moonies in the late 1990's in Berkeley, CA. And they did not do what the media said about them. They did not starve me
to make me more susceptible to mind control, but fed me well there. And they did not give me any pressure to believe in anything. The people were very
nice and kind, and seemed very genuine, no snobbiness or pretentiousness at all like mainstream people are.
How can that be? Did the media lie about them? Or have they changed their ways?
The Moonies were nicer and more inclusive than any church group I've ever met. But they seem kind of zombie like in that they believe everything
their leader Sun Yun Moon says, no matter how ludicrous.
But I did not experience any pressure or control from them.
Also, what about the Scientologists? Are all the horror stories about them true, including murders? If so, how come their leaders are not all in jail?
