The Christ Family

In the 80's I had a young girl living with our family who had been hooked up with the Christ Family, a nomadic cult. They believed in "three keys to heaven" which included no sex, no killing, and no materialism. They used to walk around in clothing made from sheets, using diapers to cover their heads (if they were women). They used marajuana constantly. Their leader, Charles McHugh, claimed to be the reincarnation of Jesus, and his followers all claimed to be reincarnations of biblical characters, too. McHugh was arrested on gun charges, and I think the cult broke up. However, recently I saw some people near the Mexican border who were dressed like Christ Family members. Does anyone out there know anything about this group?
