How long ago did McKay decide to split the cult into smaller groups of 2-3 people?
Do you think McKay felt by splitting into several smaller groups they would appeal to a wider audience?
Was there ever a time when all 20-30 of them travelled around together as one group?
It must be a nightmare if you're in a small group of 2-3 guys. I'm guessing they're not allowed outside relationships so if there's no females in your group then what chance do you ever have of finding a partner? I mean surely the likes of Joe and Alf would at some point in the future like to find a partner and maybe even have kids. Roland had a wife and son so it's obviously allowed. Are there some guys like Reinhard for example who have been in the group for years without ever having any sort of female attention? It's not very appealing for potential members.
I just wonder if McKay maybe feels enough is enough. It may be time to rebrand the cult as one travelling 'community' (no offence Brian). One last throw of the dice if you will! The cult is probably at it's lowest numbers for years and the small groups obviously hasn't helped their case. McKay's not getting any younger and he may feel this is his one last chance to really rebuild this faltering cult..
Their justification for not marrying, as well as their justification behind the married couples spending time apart from one another every year (three months, I think), comes from 1 Corinthians 7.
It has been reported that even some of the single members wear rings, though, to signify that they are married to Jesus.
Though they consider themselves celibates, they practice what DM has termed, "faithful masturbation." Again, the justification for this comes from 1 Corinthians 7.
And Rinehard is openly gay, though celibate. A lack of women, and the opportunity for, is no problem for him!
