re; Cult Formation
It would be nice if someone could show how these Samael groups are doing the following;
1. a charismatic leader who increasingly becomes an object of worship as the general principles that may have originally sustained the group lose their power;
2. a process I call coercive persuasion or thought reform;
3. economic, sexual, and other exploitation of group members by the leader and the ruling coterie.
I have been following one of these groups for a while now and I came here to get the 'dirt' on these guys if there is any. So far there is not one valid complaint on this thread.
Just because something isnt written down doesnt mean these things arnt happening behind close doors.
(The highlighted cases of priests molesting children is an example.)
The number of testamonies of former Samael members adds credibility to the claims.
