If you don’t know anything about this cult, this one encourages child sex abuse. The leader wrote about his incest at length and their history is truly disturbing.

Years ago I fell down a rabbit hole learning about this cult. Holy moly are they sick. Just the fact they are an international group operating through out the world for decades is scary.
