I have read that it is common in cults for devotees to turn over their possessions and money to a leader or guru. Sometimes everything that they own, cars, houses, etc. I've read that gurus even obtain property that their devotees don't actually own, such as cars that are actually owned by young devotee's parents. Devotees have been known to turn over all that they own to guru a

Someone mentioned homosexuality and Hinduism. In the Hare Krishna (ISKCON) religion, homosexuality is considered "illicit sex." The Hare Krishna religion, as well as Chris Butler's Science of Identity Foundation, are based on the ancient Hindu scriptures such as the Vedas and the Upanishads, etc. Hinduism is based on the same scriptures. I'll bet that homosexuality is also
