From the article above: The day's final witness, Laurie Gennari, had a starkly different take on the events of the week. She had attended several of Ray's previous seminars and said "there was always some little thing I would latch onto and I thought, that was good, maybe he'll get to the better stuff next time." But from the moment she arrived at the Spiritual

Are "The Prophet" Speed Rathbun and his next-in-commands still gone into hiding? I imagine with the recent horror hitting Japan it is reestablishing the Trumpeteers belief that "The Prophet" must be right! How sad it will be when nothing happens. Wouldn't Speed Rathbun's flucked flock be the first to rise up to the clouds in rapture since they are "pu

gracevslaw, all comments are moderated here. Many times the moderators are actually watching you post and can approve it "instantly", other times they are away going to dinner, on a trip, etc. and cannot instant post. This is done to prevent evildoers from spreading evil posts here. And no...I am NEITHER a moderator NOR know any moderators. I am one of the few that has been gi

How is this "promotion"? You followed the rules for posting to the letter (no personal contact info like name, address, phone, email address/no flaming/no being a jerk). We all like to see cult/abusive groups get a documentary treatment. Hell, if more people saw this shit there would (hopefully) be less NEW cult members. Keep the info coming.

Yeah, Rick Ross and the other expert witnesses and professional responders and doctors are going to take all these witness testimonies and tie them up with a nice little bow and stick it in Death Ray's craw.

From the trial courtesy of CNN: Doctors treating "Sweat Lodge" victims feared it was a cult "mass suicide". And from ABC News, DeathRay's defense team goes hardball on roommate of victim to discredit testimonies and muddy the waters: I can't wait for Rick Ross' testimony.

There is a bit of very low-level buzz here about "Eagles Wings". A Google Search reveals quite a few groups usurping this name. Can you tell us where this group is located? Are there other branches? Thanks in advance.

SGI members who are about to get married in a saki ceremony and placate mon and dad even though you are ex-SGI in your heart, might want to see how much Lifetime will "pony up"(PAY). It could be a nice way to fund a fun honeymoon. SGI exploited you...why not get something out of it for yourself?

This will be one of those series that lets America/Canada look into the odd marriages out there. I, for one, was married in an SGI ceremony with the complete Saki ceremony (don't ask, only know that the "Saki Girl" was so nervous she spilled and gave my wife most of the saki and I had only a sip...damn it!). I think this is sort of a "ooh look at how weird that is!" s

rrmoderator is correct. Please don't bore us (me, anyway) with your back-and-forth-wars that will clearly get BOTH of you banned? I have seen this so many times before. Watch yourselves.

Connie Joy's book " Tragedy in Sedona" at Amazon has RAVE reviews from purchasers. Check it out and the comments as well. I especially enjoyed the one (1) negative review. Clearly a Ray loon. Here is the official site of Joy's book: If the poster DancerCotillion is J.A. Ray, then let me give a "shout-out" to his future cellmate, prisoner #475-9971 "

Thank you for sharing this new (to me) MLM. The fact that it is an MLM is enough for me to flash the red light (well beyond the yellow caution light). These things are one shade off of a pyramid scheme. In my opinion MLM ARE pyramid schemes. You have a tougher time ahead, most likely....your department manager is a newbie pie-eyed fool. He/she WILL attempt to "sign you up".

From what everyone is saying (both from the new trial and from this site) is that Ray keeps "ramping things up". I had a friend who was on the outskirts of Sri Chinmoy which was a new age guru group ever seeking to make "master" proud by pushing themselves and their endurance. How different really from the deluded and evil Ray? For a brief Sri Chinmoy lesson, see here:

I think it is the whole "Mayan Calender" thing...the calender ends in December 2012. I think on the 21st but I could be wrong. Nuts, authors and thieves take advantage of the fearful for $$$ and power. The funny thing is the Mayan descendants don't think the world ends on that date. I remember in the 70's, a prayer group I attended had a special guest lecture to

So...pesticides killed those people? A blood test is simple enough to do. No blood test showing toxic levels of pesticides then no case for the defense. (I love CSI)
