WTF?!? I noticed yesterday that this site advertises for this Dave Pack's cult in their banner adds, Do they think that conspiracy theorists are easy targets for their scams?
Allegedly Charles Manson took around 150 hours of Scientology training and ditched it because it was too crazy.
Just a little food for thought.

Its really not all that weird to me, I grew up in a cult, I love e plaining that to people, lol. I was raised in the worldwide church of god, under HW Armstrong. pretty much the same, we didnt celabrate xmas, birthdays or any of it. Now, with a family of my own, I celabrate it all but I have a different perspective on it. Im an atheist, so really its just an excuse to get the family together enjoy great food(Im a chef) and drink our faces off. The kids get their gifts and time with their cousins. But thats it, I dont drag them to church and I certai.ly dont go telling them why they should or shouldnt be celabrating any holiday.
I was very aware how messed up my upbringing was while growing up (not celabrating holidays was about the least weird part of the cult).
I had never heard someone seriously trying to tell me that christmas was evil simply because santa and satan share the same letters, except for on SNL. I knew that the church lady was based on reality I just thought it was at least a little bit of an exageration.. And really the dude thats spouting that crap started his "religeon" in 1999 after the WCG split up, so it was well after the SNL skit.
