A member here (who never posted) is on NBC right now... how odd.

The cult I gew up in is being covered on Dateline.

Monger, Jules is on the tube, they are covering how she had to become a call girl when she left the Family, see if you can catch it.

Thanks for the heads up! I'll see if they'll be playing it again...will be a shame if I've missed it.

I've not read the info on that site, but yes.

They were the direct cause of the creation of The Anti-Cult-Movement in the early 70's. The Anti's even used the opposition's name in their title - FREECOG: Free Our Children From The Children Of God.

I got the heads up in a wierd way.

On Friday at the office we were all sitting around and drinking and the subject came up. My co-worker asked the name of the cult and I told her.

Friday night she calls me and tells me to turn on the tube... she'd been watching and realized it was the same name.

I caught the last half. Jules deserves props for putting out the story under her own legal name.

She'd done it for a while under her internet name, and only a few connected that to a real name (I found out by accident, I was taking apart her flash chat to see if I could port it from ASP to PHP and saw that it was running under a domain name that was her legal name).

Anywho, the most interesting thing to me, was a story from someone from a different group who resembled the hallelujah's in every way, even in the intangibles.

Craven: Are you self educated?


I attended a portion of 7th grade, and all of the 9th grade. This is a grade and a half more than most of the kids I grew up with, and I count myself lucky that I was an ass enough to get kicked out about 5 years before the second generation started to leave en masse.

I didn't learn anything academic in that school experience but it served as my entry to the real world, and I got the rough bumps out of the way earlier, which was a boon to me now, if a bane to me then.

The FBI investigated me and 1500 of my closest friends once. Thought we were a cult too.

I imagine my name is now permanently on some list somewhere being checked occasionally by Donald Rumsfeld.

Thanks mate, I dropped her a PM here and only exchanged pleasantries, that article answered the question on why the site wasn't mentioned.

Incidentally, an idea she has been talking about working on with me is something you may be interested in.

I'm not gonna wait for us both to have time and was thinking of using LinksSQL to setup an offender's database.

I'll letcha know how it goes and if you wanna tinker with it gimme a holler.

Good memories?

The cult was originally called "The Children of God" and changed their name to "The Family".

Whaaa? Really? The comic + sacral-prostitution cult? Do you have good memories or bad memories?

I find this really interesting. I don't know how to phrase the next question without sounding somewhat like a suck ..... but you've always struck me as an unusual, exceptional person. (Setting up A2K for starters) So I was wondering how your upbringing has contributed to the person you became. Or maybe overcoming the life with the Family has made you the person you are? Sorry if that sounds awkward ... I know what I mean. Laughing I hope it's not too personal a question, if you can understand it!
