Were you involved with a church, synagogue or religious institution that you thought was destructive? This new section is for those who feel they were in something destructive and/or abusive, but that it perhaps did not quite fit the definition of a "cult."
During my membership in the Jack Hickman cult, I was friendly with a particular family that left. They used to go from church to church. In fact, I don't believe they actually belonged to any one in particular.
There are people who kind of "church hop" and some of these people have some strange ideas. The mother of my friend once told me how "Jesus wasn't Jewish..." She seemed to have a problem with Jews in general. They probably left Hickman's organization when Hickman went kosher etc.
Similarly, I had a paper route and one of the people on the route was into this born again stuff. He had a boarder living with him who I used to spend time with. The boarder attacked me about "... Judaizing" in Hickman's group.
So, as usual I got caught up in the controversy between the church and the synagogue. The Xians seem to think I'm very Jewish and the Jews seem to think I'm a Xian.
I don't represent either side these days.
