the leader is the scariest part - she's got the look of an new jersey anorexic clown hooker, oh also, the whole cult thing. it's a good doc - but most of the time i couldn't help but wonder "how is this not the same with most organized religion again?"

The higher the hair, the closer to god.

I'm pretty certain that the good book very explicitly says that man in made in God's image. So wouldn't self-destructive snake oil diets be antithetical to that?

Her palid face contrasted to her darker blotched skin. She's like a photo-negative of Trump.

I've been watching this program.  My sister is involved in this crap and I've been watching to catch a glimpse of her and her family.  No, we're not close.

She, alone, was responsible for the hole in the ozone layer.

gotta finish "WIld Country" (about the Rajneesh poising in Oregon) but this is definitely next...

Not shocked she and her cohorts were on their way to a MAGA event when the plane crashed.

The lord moves in mysterious ways...

/glad that one lady no longer has to fight for custody of her child with her ex-boyfriend who also perished

She would definitely look better in a burka

This looks depressing as fark.

I think we should all just watch Reanimator.

I disagree that her death was untimely. Sounds like it was way overdue.

Still ... no, god, not THAT orange-faced asshole with farked-up hair. You want to strike down the one with a mushroom peen, who weighs about 300 lbs. Was recently the president of the United States.

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope she finds her way out.

Well now they're going to have to recast the role of Crypt Keeper for the Tales From the Crypt reboot.

My heart goes out to you. I'm familiar also with family involved in most of the evangelical gifts out there lately. What do you mean when you say involved in this crap? Christian weight loss is new to me. Prosperity doctrine?

She lives just down the road from this church, is an active member and believed Shamblin was god's prophet.  Her family actually lived on the grounds for awhile providing labor in exchange for boarding.
