Here’s an interesting question: When did ex-cult members realize they belonged to a cult?
On Reddit, some of them actually offered answers. It’s all anonymous so take it with a grain of salt, but the responses are fascinating. And the cults they expose involve ones you’ve never heard of… to Mormonism and fundamentalist Christianity. Here’s a sampling of the responses. (In some cases if the comments were edited, you may have to go directly to the website.)
As the saying goes, a religion is an old cult, and a cult is a new religion. If you’re interested, I once made a video about how to tell the difference.
