there are a lot of cults about. if you're religious in any way you're one step from a cult. i can remember as a first year university student there were loads of cult recruiters about. erm no one had to tell me that's what they were, i could just tell. preying on the innocent first time away from home.
I'd take it further, if you're an institution or subculture or field of discourse you're often only 1-2 steps from a cult also.

Absolutely, and a lot of the recruitment is very sinister, there was one church I used to pass often that had this sign saying you should join if you were weak, helpless, list etc which I suppose was meant to look comforting but to me just made it explicit that they wanted the most vulnerable to get their hooks into.

Mother God is "resting"

err, she's dead and mummified - Love Has Won!

Prosecutors have charged seven people after the mummified body of the leader of a spiritual group called Love Has Won was found decorated with Christmas lights and glitter in what appeared to be a shrine in a southern Colorado home.

Amy Carlson, 45, who was known as “Mother God” by her followers, was found dead in a home in the tiny, rural town of Moffat on 28 April, according to arrest affidavits. Each of the defendants is facing charges related to tampering with or abusing a corpse as well as child abuse.

A coroner’s office has not said how or when Carlson died.
