  • Umm if they're in a cult, wouldn't the cult leader not let them watch Dr. Phil on principle? He might poach them for Oprah's cult.

  • Seriously though, NP is right. Cults are all about control of the individual, so cavorting with us worldly women that use the internet probably isn't allowed by the lower ranks of the cult. The higher ranks wouldn't want to get out, as they have worked their way up and paid their time to get what privileges they have.

    I'm not the one who brought her up in that other question - I was simply pointing out the obvious dilemma once she was involved.

    And yeah, I can't imagine there's much time for Dr. Phil when they're so busy having their kids bred out to the prophet or begging in airports.

  • Aww, they aren't begging. They are selling pretty, pretty daisies that God created for us to all enjoy (which is why they ruthlessly sliced them from their origins to be pimped out for dollars). Those poor, poor flowers. :o(


    As for Oprah, is she big or little now? I can't keep up with all that jazz.

  • "anyone that is in a cult does not have access to tv or the internet... "

    lol!

    I guess that's like saying 'anyone who is religious doesn't have access to sinful things'.

    Tell me.. How do you think these people recruit, if not using such avenues as the internet? Oh, I know. They show up at schools in their robes (because all cultists wear robes, of course) and beg the kids to drink the koolaid (because anyone in a cult does that).

    Sheesh.
