                 From Mass Suicides To World Domination: Behind The Most Crazed Cults In History

From prophesies predicting the end of the world, to crazed leaders instructing their followers to commit cold-blooded murder, cults have long been a disturbing part of criminal and religious history.

While for those on the outside, it often seems unbelievable how intelligent and rational people can fall for such crazed concepts, RadarOnline.com is revealing how for those who are brainwashed it is all too easy to fall under their manipulative leaders' spells.

PHOTOS: The Craziest Cult Leaders Of All Time
The Manson Family

Notorious criminal Charles Manson has become the dark face of the peace loving, hippie era of the sixties since his followers committed one of the most chilling crimes of the decade. Taking the term Helter Skelter from a Beatles song, the musician believed in an impending race war and plotted grisly murders to precipitate it that were carried out by his followers, named the Manson Family. The unemployed ex-con gathered a loyal band of followers who obediently got blood on their hands under his guidance from their base at the remote Spahn Ranch. The most gruesome of these attacks was the the notorious 1969 butcherings of Rosemary LaBianca and Sharon Tate, the pregnant wife of director Roman Polanski.

Now 77, Manson was originally sentenced to death for his part in the cult style murders by members of his commune but it was modified in 1977 to life in prison with the possibility of parole, which he had rejected for the 12th time last April.
Warren Jeffs

As leader of the Fundamentalist Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, polygamist Warren Jeffs gained notoriety when he was placed on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List for fleeing Utah state charges related to his arrangement of illegal marriages between his adult male followers and underage girls. Along with his illicit match-making under the name of the church, the creepy cult leader was also convicted of the sexual assault of two girls, ages 12 and 14, who he claims were his “spiritual brides," and was sentenced to life in prison in August 2011.

The sex-hungry aspects of the FLDS Church have been condemned by mainstream Mormons, but that has not curbed the influence of now 56-year-old Jeffs, who continues to illegally preach from behind bars and has written a new book based on “revelations from God” for cult members who are still following the word of their imprisoned leader.
Branch Davidians

The small Texas city of Waco rose to notoriety in 1993 when a siege of the cult Branch Davidians' ranch lasted for 51 days and ended in the fiery deaths of 76 members, including 20 children and two pregnant women. The standoff between sect leader David Koresh -- who claimed he had been told by God to procreate with the women in the group to establish a "House of David" of his "Special People" -- and the ATF began on February 28 when agents raided the ranch to seize illegal firearms after hearing reports of illegal gunfire from the Mount Carmel compound.

The standoff kicked off to a bloody start when four agents and six Branch Davidians were killed in a shoot out, leading to the siege during which Koresh released numerous video recordings to the FBI. There has been much criticism about how the volatile situation was handled by the authorities, including the use of sleep- and peace-disrupting sound and sniper attacks. Although Koresh repeatedly denied any plan for mass suicide, three separate fires broke out in different parts of the building that the government adamantly claims were deliberately started by the Davidians. Despite extensive investigation, criminal trials and conspiracy theories, what really happened in what has been described as the "greatest domestic law enforcement tragedy in the history of the United States," remains intensely controversial.
Jonestown

As founder and leader of the People's Temple, Reverend James Warren "Jim" Jones had so much power over his followers that he encouraged and strong armed the bulk of his members to commit suicide on November 18, 1978 in his self-named commune of Jonestown, Guyana. Jones first gained notoriety in San Francisco in the 1960s and '70s where he voiced his "Apostolic Socialism" concept. "If you're born in capitalist America, racist America, fascist America, then you're born in sin. But if you're born in socialism, you're not born in sin," he preached.

He moved the cult to Guyana claiming it was a sanctuary from media scrutiny, and many members argue that when he was down there Jones could no longer hide his heavy drug taking from other heads of the community. The group took a murderous turn when U.S. Congressman Leo Ryan visited Jonestown to investigate human rights abuse allegations with a group of concerned relatives and reporters, and they were killed by Jones' "Red Brigade" armed guards when they tried to escape.

Later that same day, 909 inhabitants of Jonestown (303 of them children) died of apparent cyanide poisoning, mostly in and around a pavilion. The mass suicide went down in history as the greatest single loss of American civilian life in a non-natural disaster until the September 11th attacks.
Aum Shinrikyo

Aum Shinrikyo is a Japanese cult founded by Shoko Asahara in 1984 and what started off as a yoga and meditation class quickly escalated until gaining international notoriety in 1995 when it carried out the deadly Sarin gas attack on a Tokyo subway, which killed 13 commuters, seriously injured 54 and affected 980 more.

It's controversial creator attempted to tie religious ideas to popular anime, and went on to preach the necessity of modernizing popular Buddhist themes. Aum's phenomena became one of the fastest-growing religious groups in Japan's history, and while the secret practices are shrouded in mystery, they are believed to have involved the use of hallucinogenics such as LSD and members being painfully hung upside down or suffering from shock therapy. The dark nature of the group spread to include kidnappings, and the murder of escaped members and their relatives, until one of which left a note that read: "If I disappear, I was abducted by Aum Shinrikyo." The message sparked planned raids on the sect by police across Japan, which is thought to have triggered the coordinated attack on five subway trains in Tokyo.

Despite the atrocity and Shinrikyo being declared bankrupt, the group still exists and has over a thousand members but has been formally designated a terrorist organization by several countries, including Canada, the European Union, and the United States.

                    IHOP under scrutiny for cult link after Bethany Deaton alleged rape, murder

    IHOP
    November 19, 2012
    By: Charisse Van Horn

On Nov. 17, 2012, the Kansas City Star provided an update on what Jackson County, Missouri authorities have described as a cult murder. Numerous questions surround the death of Bethany Deaton, 27, including a link between the cult group she was involved with and Kansas City’s International House of Prayer operated by Mike Bickle. According to Jackson County police reports, Deaton was found dead on Oct. 30, 2012 in the back seat of a Ford Windstar van with a bag over her head. Next to her body were several bottles of pills and a note. At first, authorities believed Deaton’s death was suicide. The case was classified as a homicide after Micah Moore, 23, one of Deaton’s roommates and fellow cult member, turned himself into the Grandview Police Department and gave a bizarre confession. Now, investigators are trying to piece together the cult activities by the group led by Deaton’s husband, Tyler Deaton, 26, as well as their associations with the International House of Prayer.


Alleged Rape and Murder of Bethany Deaton

The note found alongside Bethany Deaton’s deceased body reads as follows, “My name is Bethany Deaton. I chose this evil thing. I did it because I wouldn’t be a real person and what is the point of living if it is too late for that? I wish I had chosen differently a long time ago. I knew it all and refused to listen. Maybe Jesus will save me.”

The suicide note is disjointed and is almost cryptic in its wording. It might not make sense if it weren’t for Moore’s confession indicating it was faked. According to Moore, who has not been charged with any sexual crimes, but faces first-degree murder charges, Moore murdered Deaton while acting upon her husband’s orders.

The Kansas City Star reported, “According to court documents, Moore, said that he and other members of the group had engaged in a series of sexual assaults on Bethany Deaton at a house in Grandview, where several of the group lived. He later told detectives that Tyler Deaton told him to kill Bethany, “saying he knew Micah had it in him to do it,” according to court documents.”

Tyler Deaton and other cult members who lived in the home are currently under investigation. It is unclear whether charges stemming from the sexual assault allegations will be filed. Court documents also quote Moore as telling authorities that Bethany Deaton was seeing a counselor/therapist and the men feared she would reveal the sexual abuse. He also indicated there was video evidence depicting the sexual abuse and that Bethany Deaton had wrote about her experiences through poetry.....

                    The Vissarion Christ: Inside Russia's End-Times Cults

Cupping candles in their hands, wrapped in white silk and knit robes, nearly 3,000 people knelt on the snow in the middle of the Siberian woods. Tall pine trees served as the walls of their church; the stage for their chorus was carved out of ice. Fluffy snowflakes landed on their heads as they sang their prayers: “God, illuminate our souls with your light, warm up our souls.” The next moment, silence fell over the forest as a bearded, chubby man in long white robes emerged at the top of a hill. His followers call him the Vissarion Christ, or just Teacher; they pray to his portraits and celebrate his birthday, Jan. 14, as their Christmas. And they obey his every instruction, living in expectation of the apocalypse he has predicted.....

                            Spiritual Fraudster Pleads Guilty To Swindling Client Out of $650,000

Posted on May 13, 2013 by RobRobinson

 How do you know if your spiritual guru is leading you astray? Well, if she tells you that she needs at least two Rolexes and $600,000 in cash to ward off the devil, it may be a sign that she is not on the level.

As all the online “how to recognize a fake guru or a false prophet” websites warn: it’s a bad sign when your guru exhibits greediness and accumulates expensive possessions, and it’s a really bad sign when your spiritual guru exhibits greediness towards your expensive possessions.

But phony soothsayers and fake spiritual leaders have been preying on the bewildered, befuddled and wealthy since time immemorial, a grift that continues to this day, even in the era where a person can get page after page of Google tips on how to differentiate the path of light from the path of a lighter wallet.

One so-called spiritual guide even managed to bilk a wealthy businesswoman out of $650,000 before the victim called the guru’s bluff, according to the Manhattan District Attorney. Ironically, the guru grifter won the woman’s trust by telling her that other people were cheating, deceiving and stealing money from her and that the guru, possessed of spiritual powers, could help.

The phony spiritual leader, 39-year-old Janet Miller, has pleaded guilty to third-degree grand larceny for her involvement in a year-long scam that started when Ms. Miller met the victim at an apartment on East 41st Street in July 2011, according to the District Attorney’s office. Somehow, Ms. Miller won the victim over by telling her that she could see her dead grandmother crying and requesting $900 to make a shield to block the devil. After the victim gave her $400, she gave the victim “holy” water, oils, salt and crystals and started communicating with her on an almost daily basis.

Over the course of the year, demands and/or necessities for warding off the devil and curing the victim’s father of cancer escalated from hundred dollar bills to jewelry and Rolex watches.

The most dubious request of all—and the one which apparently brought down the scam—was when the so-called spiritual guru told the victim that her money was cursed and unclean and that she could cleanse it on a mountaintop, instructing her to give her $600,000 in cash (which would all be returned, of course)—the old cleaning your money on a mountaintop trick. The victim started to suspect that she had been swindled when Ms. Miller only returned a small portion of the “cleansed” cash.

“Larceny is larceny, no matter what form it takes—fraud by a spiritual advisor is no different than fraud committed by an attorney, an accountant, or any other person who gains an individual’s trust in order to steal from him or her,” District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. wrote in a release about the conviction. Ms. Miller is expected to be sentenced on June 12.

                                               I USED TO BE A SCIENTOLOGIST, NOW I HELP PEOPLE OUT OF CULTS BY SMOKING WEED


Dennis Erlich (pictured above, in a weird hat) was the original guy who exposed the craziness of Scientology on the internet. A member since 1967 and later a minister, he started to rebel against the church in the mid-80s. In the early 90s, he began issuing a newsletter called InFormer, exposing the secrets of Scientology.
 
He became the original internet censorship case in 1994 when he scanned pages of Scientology texts to an online newsgroup, telling the wider world about Thetans and Xenu for the very first time. In 1995 a federal judge permitted Scientologists to raid his house, a video of which can be seen here.
 
Since then he's been helping people get back to normal life after being in cults, mainly through smoking marijuana. If you've just left a cult, his InFormer Ministry Collective is probably the best place to learn how real life works, while also learning how to get super stoned and grow your own weed....

The Pay-As-You-Go-Religion: Kidnapping, Torture and Disconnection Beyond Death (Sunday, November 17, 2013)


World Cult Watch regularly exposes the reports of abuse within Scientology, and this week, former Scientologists who were all highly-placed members of the organization’s paramilitary wing, the Sea Organization, will deliver some shocking tales. Accounts include stories of kidnapping, torture and an outrageous eternal “disconnect.” Joining host Rob Robinson are Karen de la Carriere, Scott Campbell and his wife Karry Campbell.
Describing Scientology as a “pay as you go religion,” Karen de la Carriere offers an intriguing and disturbing perspective. A long time member of the “church” of Scientology, she is the ex-wife of the president of the Church of Scientology international. In her trek on the “Bridge to Total Freedom”, she paid over $300,000 to the “religion” in less than three years. People who follow news about Scientology will recognize Karen. Due to Scientology’s diabolic policy of disconnection, when her son son Alexander died, she was blocked from viewing his body at the Los Angeles county morgue and barred from attending hisfuneral
Scott Campbell got into scientology in 1985 and by August of that same year, he joined the Sea Org. He was one of the original crew members on the Scientologycruise ship, Freewinds. He served in the Sea Org for 9 years, He left he Sea Org and church for good in 1994
Self-described as “a Navy brat,” his wife Karry’s childhood involved frequent moves, from Florida to Connecticut, to New York and then California. Karry Campbell was raised a Scientologist and attended Scientology schools before joining staff when she was 15 years old. Two years later, she joined the Sea Org and served there for eight years. In 1986, Karry met and married Scott. They worked together on the Freewinds. Like Scott, she left the Sea Org in 1994
~~~
World Cult Watch, a weekly program that airs every Sunday night, is intended to not only offer news and information about cults, but to provide a forum where cult survivors — and those wanting to leave — have a chance to talk and receive emotional support.
