Last Night I did something that I seldom do to a caller. I lost it. I got angry with the caller
and hung up on him. I hardly ever do that sort of thing on the air but at the moment I felt
I was justified.
He called in and insulted my guest. He did so because he was a Christian and felt
threatened that my guest was talking about eastern philosophy and attitudes that
empowered the human soul. My guest, Michael Cremo was not there to attack faith,
or Christianity or anyone’s belief systems. He was there to demonstrate that both
creationism and the Darwin’s theory of evolution were flawed. He had proofs of fossil
records that demonstrated that mankind had been around for millions of years. However
the whole subject he wanted to speak about was clouded by a religious zealot who
couldn’t let go of his fundamentalist cult like mentality with regard to his religious beliefs.

I had been discussing the cult like zeal with my friends with regards to the Royal
wedding, a group of Christians who believe the rapture will happen in May, Barack
Obama followers and Birthers and the recent revisiting of the Bhagwan Shree
Rashneesh Cult stories that had the interests of Oregon in the early 1980’s.
Many of us have our own prejudices regarding the stories of cults or cult leaders like
Jim Jones of the People’s Temple, David Koresh of the branch Dravidians and Marshall
Applewhite of Heaven’s Gate. However many people don’t realize that they can fall prey
to cult like behavior in both their religious and political views. Many already have and
this is why there seems to be a polarization of views in the country a model of you are
either on our side or the side of those who oppress us.
No word in the English language conjures up more disdain than the word cult. It has
been used and abused to describe any group that dances to the tune of a different
drum. While it is arguable that we have all been a part of cult like behavior from time to
time in our lives it seems that there are many jumping on the bandwagon to warn you
that these groups lurk in the most unassuming of places.
You will also be surprised to learn that many of you are probably already a part of a
group that uses a tactic known as group dynamics to get you to do their bidding. This
type of manipulation can get even the smartest of people to do things that most people
would consider peculiar.
Cult like behavior exists in therapy groups, political groups, and many businesses use
group dynamics to instill pride and loyalty.
The confusing thing is that not all cults are bad. If the group is legitimately trying to find
the truth and they’re purpose is to better mankind then they will stand up to the scrutiny
and they will persevere. If they are continually pressuring people to commit before they
hear the whole story, or if they lie or use nebulous rewards or undefined fear of an
enemy as a tactic to get your servitude then you should realize that this group may be
destructive and needs to be avoided.
There are many things that can be used to put fear and paranoia into your mind. We
have heard of prophecies, outrageous claims, UFO alien invasion terrors, and possible
virtual takeovers. While they are possibilities to consider one must realize that until they
transpire they are pure speculation.
Many though, are convinced that their fears will come true and are left in a hellish pit of
despair. They tend to look for a protective network. A group that answers their
questions or even weirder still continues to fuel their fears.
While a healthy dose of paranoia motivates even the people who dwindle in unbelief,
unhealthy fear and manipulation can get you to move away from your family, stockpile
weapons, and kill others, even yourself.
It just takes a few triggers and a few key ingredients and soon the whole world comes
crashing down around you.
Technological failures, planet alignments, rogue comets, political collapse and bible
prophecy. Mix it with science fiction and a dash of paranoia and the future will be over
for the estimated 3 million or more people who are members of what are termed
dangerous cults. The fear is that if more groups become mainstream they will become
more menacing and lure people into acting strangely or even dangerously.
The scary part is that no one is immune to being a part of a group that appears on the
surface to have your best interests at heart. It’s all a part of the war for your mind and
while you think you are safe in your own choices, it can become quite clear that
powerful images and trigger words can get you to act out of paranoia and fear.
However, there seems to be an argument as to which is a cult and which isn’t a cult.
The word cult has been used to define a religion that is unorthodox to mainstream
consensus reality. The word cult is catch all for dangerous groups when in reality all
religions in essence are cults.
A cult defined is basically any group or organization where dedicated, willing members
surrender independent thinking and their lives for an idealistic sounding mission.
This definition literally points to any group that uses peer pressure and group dynamics
to further an agenda. Thus creating a mindset where people would rather die or
sacrifice those around them than go against the group.
It is a programming mechanism that we are all familiar with. Whether it is a religious
influence, a political influence, or patriotism we have allowed ourselves to make the
claim that we would be willing to sacrifice our time, our well being, and even our lives for
that ideology.
Sometimes however there are things we give up little by little when we are being
We lose our integrity, and self-responsibility, little by little and become dependant on
those who are controlling us. When they tell us of a threat and urge us to agree upon it,
we are willing to give up everything even our lives to eliminate that threat.
No one realizes that this form of mind control is destructive until they reach the edge
and by then they realize that they really don’t care anymore because they feel trapped.
They are damned if they leave and they are damned if they stay. If they leave they do it
alone and lose their network of like minded acquaintances. If they stay they must
continue the self destructive path.
The only means of escape is literally the laying down of one’s life for the cause.
What do destructive groups do in order to have that hold over you? Well the first and
foremost thing is to create an evil enemy, those who have an opposing viewpoint to
your particular ideology.
We see this happen in government, religion, and in racial hate groups such as the KKK
and neo-Nazi groups. It’s unavoidable. When you join the “cause” you have people who
are constantly telling you that an undefined enemy exists and so you put your trust in
the collective because you assume that the group you belong to can’t easily be mislead.
There lies a false sense of security, where you assume that your calling and election is
made sure either in the present , or in a nebulous future where all things will be made
known and the secrets will be revealed. The trigger word here is potential. You feel that
losing yourself into this group will give you potential to supersede the indefinable enemy
that persecutes you.
After the slow stripping away of your character you fail to realize that you have resolved
that the group or ideology is far more important than you are. This is where the danger
You then fail to see the other warning signs that develop like centralized control and
policing of others, making sure that measures to insure control are upheld for the
survival of the collective’s intentions.
This leads to censorship and secrecy. Flaws of the group are not mentioned, or they are
covered up or classified.
There are some however that will be given certain secrets, if they have proven their
loyalty to the controllers. They learn their secrets through secret meetings and
ceremonies that are not open to all members of the collective.
There will be those within the group that will further the agendas and ideologies by
publicly declaring the loyalty through testimonials and endorsements. It is an imperative
that no disagreeing oratory be heard amongst the collective. To do so would be
considered subversive or insurgent. Maybe in some cases it would be considered
blasphemous or heretical.
How many times have we been accused of having a lack of faith, or having our loyalty
questioned because we have been critical of a viewpoint or ideology foisted upon us by
those who claim that they are above us, or claim to be our leaders?
I have been a radio personality for over 20 years now and there are so many things that
you learn when you are behind the microphone. First of all it isn’t what you do say, it’s
what you imply. People have always asked about a cuss word here and there on the air
and whether or not it is forbidden and I say that it isn’t as forbidden as attacking those
things that are sacred.
Blasphemy still manages to get under the skins of many people.
I can recall Salmon Rushdie’s “Satanic Verses” and the furor it sparked for orthodox
Muslims. The anger was so overwhelming that Muslims laid a price on Rushdie’s
head. “Satanic Verses” was banned in India in 1988 as a result of protest from some
members of the Indian Muslim community. Rushdie once commented that the new
millennial struggle would be over feeling secure and terrorism. His visions of the future
were prophetic where he saw the relinquishing of liberties to what he describes as
shadow warriors of a secret order.
After September 11th Rushdie said that in order for our safety to be insured our rights
would undoubtedly be compromised. He also railed against the Muslim Fundamentalism
in a column published in the New York Times:
“The fundamentalist seeks to bring down a great deal more than buildings. Such people
are against, to offer just a brief list, freedom of speech, a multi-party political system,
universal adult suffrage, accountable government, Jews, homosexuals, women’s rights,
pluralism, secularism, short skirts, dancing, beardlessness, evolution theory, sex. These
are tyrants, not Muslims. Islam is tough on suicides, who are doomed to repeat their
deaths through all eternity. However, there needs to be a thorough examination, by
Muslims everywhere, of why it is that the faith they love breeds so many violent mutant
strains. If the West needs to understand its Unabombers and McVeighs, Islam needs to
face up to its bin Ladens.”—Salman Rushdie “Fighting the forces of invisibility”
He mentions the fanatics that caused harm in the United States before the September
11th tragedy, both the Unabomber and the militant Timothy Mcveigh. Let me also give
the names of other fanatics that have met with horrible ends namely David Koresh,
Marshall Applewhite and Jim Jones.
I once postulated that the events of Heaven’s Gate, Mt. Caramel (Waco) and
Jonestown should serve as a warning to anyone who falls into the cultish web of
fanaticism whether it is religious, governmental, or political.
Take a society of people who feel they are happy and free. Give them leaders they
trust. Then introduce drugs into the society. Take from them that, which they hold dear,
give them a reason to start feeling paranoid, demonize those who rebel, watch the
breakdown begin. The final solution is deadly. Revolt, mass murder, chaos, and a final
mop up slaughter.
This demonstrates the beginning of Luciferian Dominionism. It is recontructionism; it will
lead to schisms and a civil unrest between believers, and non believers.
The cults of the past are cell models for social engineering based in religious fanaticism
and Reconstructionism run amok.
For those who are unfamiliar with Reconstructionism you have to learn about it and
what it represents. It has an agenda that reeks of Luciferian Dominionism that removes
freedom of choice. Especially when it comes to religious beliefs and the separation of
church and state.
Reconstructionism is a theological term that from what I can see is adding fire to an
eschatology that seems to have taken hold in these uncertain times.
It’s history comes from conservative Presbyterianism which proclaims that in order
to reach a utopian society one must apply “Biblical Law” taken from the laws of Old
Testament Israel. When these contemporary doctrines are applied to a society it will
reconstruct it and prepare it for the Kingdom of God on earth.
This means that under Recontructionism the Bible is to be the governing text for all
areas of life, In fact most conservative Christians believe that this ideology was the very
ideology that the founding fathers were trying to push when they established the United
I have had many callers to my shows telling me that our laws and many of the tenants
in our society are based on “biblical laws” and that we have strayed from these basic
building blocks and that is why society is breaking down.
Reconstructionists are hard at work in these times because there are many of them who
also have adopted dispensationalist viewpoints and fanatical viewpoints regarding the
mission of Christianity today and the application biblical principles in all things like law,
education, and government.
The “Biblical World View” has been the driving force behind the shutting down of
theatres that show pornography, the harassment of homosexuals, and the bombing of
abortion clinics.
“The Christian goal for the world is the universal development of Biblical theocratic
republics, in which every area of life is redeemed and placed under the Lordship of
Jesus Christ and the rule of God’s law.”—Christian Theologian David Chilton
“The Institutes of Biblical Law,” by R.J.Rushdoony explains in detail how Gods laws
can be applied in everyday life and how through the establishment of God’s laws in
government all other governments are evil and antichrist.
“The only true order is founded on Biblical Law. All law is religious in nature, and every
non-Biblical law-order represents an anti-Christian religion. In brief, Every law-order
is a state of war against the enemies of that order, and all law is a form of warfare.” —
The laws are sure and swift and many of the ideals have crept into mainstream
Americana. What were once extreme beliefs are now being used as absolutes and are
becoming solutions to problems facing the country.
Many people in the United States share these extreme views.
Those with extreme Dominionist views believe in the death penalty for a wide range of
crimes. Many have said that the death penalty should be carried out in cases of rape,
kidnapping and murder.
There are many people in the general public who believe that punishment is too soft for
criminals and may even believe that these would be adequate punishments for these
But do you believe that death should be used as the punishment for apostasy?
How about heresy?
Or blasphemy?
Reconstructionists do.
They also believe that if you practice witchcraft or believe in aliens you should be
publicly executed.
Back in 1999 when Senator Bob Barr tried unsuccessfully to attach a witchcraft-banning
amendment to a Defense Department authorization bill keeping soldiers at Ft. hood
from practicing Wicca. The Reverend Jack Harvey, pastor of the Tabernacle Baptist
Church in Killeen, just outside Fort Hood was quick to point out that Witchcraft was a sin
and that the people who practice it fall under the condemnation of God and his laws.
“There are 112 verses where God calls this not just sin but … abomination, Thou shalt
not suffer a witch to live. God detests this, this is like homosexuality, which God also
says is an abomination.” –Reverend Jack Harvey
Pat Robertson made this famous quote about those who believe in alien beings:
“If such things (aliens) exist, they are simply demons trying to lead people away
from Christ. People who believe in space aliens should be put to death by stoning —
according to “God’s word.” The Bible says the Earth belongs to man, but the heavens
belong to the Lord He has given us the Earth. He also warned, way back when Moses
was writing down not only what is the Ten Commandments, but Deuteronomy, which is
almost the Second Law. —Pat Robertson
If you believe in astrology, or commit adultery if you participate in sodomy or
homosexuality, or incest you dominionists believe that you should be executed. If you
strike a parent, or are an incorrigible juvenile delinquent, or if you are woman who has
sex before marriage most prominent Reconstructionists believe you should face the
death penalty.
The frightening thing is that Reconstructionists are saying that there is no other way
than the Christian God’s way of living and that if anyone chooses a different path they
are antichrist. This means that they are a liability to the kingdom of god and therefore
there must be a course set for world conquest or Christian dominion that will most
certainly be victorious because according to the bible their victory is inevitable.
The significance of the Reconstructionist is the power of its ideology and the surprisingly
rapid acceptance of their ideas and philosophies. While many Christians would not
admit to some of the core beliefs, many would sooner accept them now because
there are many who are frightened of the Muslim menace. Still, there are others who
are fearful that the Second Coming is near and that perhaps it is time to go back to
the “biblical law.”
Many on the Christian Right are unaware that they hold Reconstructionist ideas. There
are many that do not recognize the Luciferian Dominionism rising from our very own
I can cite several examples of how our very own government is showing signs of
crumbling at the hands of this Dominionism.
First we must stop and analyze quotes from some of our elected officials with regard to
their positions. They are leaders who have been appointed to look out for all citizens.
They have been appointed not to judge others with regards to their religious affiliation,
or sexual orientation. They are to treat women with equality, and care for the children
and the future of the world.
Soon after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, President George Bush declared
a ‘crusade’ against Islamic terrorism.
While at the time it wasn’t popular to criticize a President especially after he showed
leadership and calm after the brutal attacks on the country several news agencies
reported that Secretary of State, Colin Powell, had to spend most of September 18,
2001, repairing the damage caused by the president when he said that the response to
the terrorist attacks was a “crusade.”
The biggest task was trying to convince an already irritated Muslim world that this
phrasing wasn’t equivalent to an American fatwa.
Meanwhile John Ashcroft of course has been busily setting the stage for dominionism
in the United States. As the Attorney General under President Bush Ashcroft has
demonstrated where his philosophies are.
He has been quoted several times using the reconstructionist rhetoric that on the
surface looks godly but deep down is Luciferian and controlling.
“Unique among the nations, America recognized the source of our character as being
godly and eternal, not being civic and temporal. And because we have understood that
our source is eternal, America has been different. We have no king but Jesus.”—John
Ashcroft thinks gays are “abnormal” and that homosexuality “is a condition from which
relief should be sought.” Ashcroft opposed including sexual orientation in already-
existing federal hate crime laws. Ashcroft led the opposition against America’s first gay
ambassador, James Hormel, simply because Hormel is gay.
There will be some who argue that John Ashcroft receives his criticism because he is a
Christian. However it must be pointed out that intolerance and bold statements made by
officials with messianic complexes can become a liability to the cause of freedom of any
As the Muslims have learned fanatics that carry out acts of aggression in the name of
their God often tarnish the reputations of those who believe in peace and the well being
of the human race. Now they like Christians are awaiting some sort of Armageddon and
the arrival of a deliverer.
The Second Coming or millennium was something that we were told would happen
during our lifetimes and times would be so harsh that it would turn brother against
We were Armageddon obsessed then, and things seem to be more Armageddon
obsessed now.
Especially in our government. The apotheosis that has been enabled with the Obama
presidency has made the president a mono mythical hero with mysterious origins. Much
like an externalized savior.
I have been telling people that we need to understand that we have elected a president
and not a prophet; however President Obama loves this attention and loves the circus.
It only furthers his mysterious arrival and placement in a position of power. He is not just
president he is a cult leader.
It seems that he has a messianic complex, however it is fueled by his supporters and
left unabated will metastasize into a much greater, complex psychological manipulation.
The Births certificate controversy is similar to the crisis over who impregnated the
mother of Jesus, when it was demanded to know the origins of the Christ child it was
written that he was a child conceived by the Holy Ghost. No sex and no physical
contact. This creates a zeal for his followers to denounce his oppressors and creates a
persecution complex. Whenever there is a perceived threat of a cult, the zealous rise in
anger and defend the cause of righteousness.
As Micheal Cremo declared on Ground Zero, the recent Christian zeal and anger can
be blamed on the threat that is perceived and fueled by the media with regards to
evolution and the continued programming that the human soul is not of divine origin.
This is how we are quick to see monsters and aliens in places of power, because we
feel that a demonic plague has somehow risen from the depths to destroy our core
beliefs. It breeds hate, and mistrust.
We are already questioning the birth place of our leader, and we are questioning his
loyalties to the country and to the predominant faith. Obama has now become a leader
who is alien and of a religion that is not approved in the United States. There are many
people who see him as an antichrist and now doubt his religious and American heritage.
I am frightened to see that perhaps there is a possibility that there will be King Kill move
on the part of a fanatical group seeing the government as an abomination.
Our government leaders are ritualizing us and preparing us for war within ourselves. We
have seen this pseudo political cult like mentality with the likes of Jim Jones. Marshal
Applewhite, David Koresh and others.
We have seen the fear with satanic panic, red scare and other bogeyman that are used
to create the Americult – and various other cults will merge before we reach the year
The Satanic Panic that existed before was filled with fantasies and fears that were
quoted and propagated with an incredible zeal, and ideas and memes were planted into
the minds of children and the gullible by councilors, the clergy and in some cases law
enforcement officers, and leaders of Government.
The Satanic Panic has been replaced with Muslim Panic, and patriotic guilt, that usually
is remedied by placing an American flag somewhere prominently in the window of your
home or business.
It is the equivalent of garlic to keep Vampires away, or lambs blood to keep the angel of
death from knocking on your door.
We are placing ourselves in very precarious position as Americans, and Christians will
suffer a rude awakening when they realize that not all Christians have an eye single to
the glory of God and the edifying of the body of Christ.
I want to acquaint you with a new term that I never thought would be an issue in a
country where freedom of speech is supposed to be granted by a constitution.
The term is called “civil blasphemy.”
The word combination is frightening because of what it implies.
It is an idea that I believe will be the norm if we allow the fanatics to remain inching
their ideologies slowly into the realms of our government. The idea of civil blasphemy
to me is that if you decide to burn a flag, or speak out in dissent of a government policy
or action, if you question authority, or demean or otherwise point out hypocrisy in
government you will be arrested for civil blasphemy.
Civil blasphemy will be determined by the lawmakers as anything that the state deems
sacred, so sacred that it will be protected from any form of irreverence and challenge.
I am beginning to see some unhealthy attitudes being expressed about our leaders.
People are having difficulty differentiating between mortal leaders who are elected to
govern, and assume the positions of messiahs and prophets.
We will see the groups willing to march single file into hell all for the promise of heaven.
Even if it means socialism, globalism and perhaps communism.
Every day we see alien cult thinking embody avatars that wish to wreak havoc from
burning Korans to picketing Military funerals. Many people say that this is only a
minority and they don’t need the attention.
It needs to be considered that if only 10 percent of a certain religious organization is
fanatics we need to put that into real numbers which could total in the millions.
God moves in mysterious ways, but not so mysterious as his mortal believers.
As you can see no one is immune. Perhaps now we can understand why some people
who are members of destructive groups act the way they do. Now perhaps we can look
outside ourselves and see why groups go willingly to the slaughter when the day of
reckoning takes place.
In March of 2000, the bodies of some 400 people were found locked in a Ugandan
church, burned beyond recognition. The group known as the “Movement for the
Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God” celebrated the night before they died in
the fire. Local officials said the cultists had slaughtered a cow and ordered 70 crates of
soda the night before taking their lives. Many news agencies described bodies burned
in a kneeling position with arms outstretched. Reporters were assuming that it appeared
they were reaching for help.
I say that in all probability they weren’t. While I can’t honestly say what was going
through the minds of every person during the blaze, It has been shown in previous
destructive cult cases that many give up their lives willingly because they are of the
mindset that they are going to a better place.
The witnesses to the aftermath of self-destruction are stupefied when they count the
bodies of those who eventually die for the cause. The irresolution for those who do not
understand is why these people willingly lay down their lives.
The first reaction is that they were forced into it, that they had no choice. This is false. It
is only a defense mechanism of the living. The loathsome reality is that people will die
for causes. If they are convinced that there is a reward waiting for them. Mind control
has its way with people.
The Heaven’s Gate tragedy shows us that even the most normal of individuals can be
convinced into doing something peculiar in order to be saved from peril.
It has been said time and time again by the media and by those who were close the 38
followers of Marshal Applewhite that they packed their luggage willingly and ingested
lethal doses of Phenobarbital and Vodka in order to “shed their containers,” and
rendezvous with a “spaceship” travelling in the tail of comet Hale-Bopp.
The group’s suicides were a reflection of the times, a byproduct of a pop culture lost in
the throes of comic book philosophy and fear of an apocalypse. In lieu of leaving suicide
notes, the group left behind suicide press kits showing followers, who without coercion
told us that they were happily going away like an “away team” from Star Trek.
There was a “told you so” attitude that permeated throughout the media. I even
witnessed reporters who would challenge the friends and families of the victims when
they claimed that the members were normal people. They were pointing out constantly
that a UFO cult was not a Christian faith and that is why it was destructive. This I felt
was unfair and I began to side with Heaven’s gate. I am a firm believer in allowing
people to worship the God they choose. Even if it is a bald globe headed being from the
Evolutionary Level above Human. The Christian bias was so nauseating I couldn’t bear
to watch it anymore.
What annoys me about the subject of cults is that it gives way to bigotry. It also gives
license to anyone who feels that they are above the manipulations of destructive groups.
Soon, there is name-calling and labeling of people who truly are involved with sects that
may not be cut from the same cloth as mainstream religious groups.
Mormons have had to deal with such persecution by evangelical churches that look at
their pyramid like organization as a threat to “wholesome Christianity.”
However even though it may appear that many of the tenants of a destructive cult exist
within the Mormon Church there has not been evidence to show that it has been a
destructive cult in over 150 years of existence.
Of course there are individual stories of treachery in the church, but there are stories
such as these in any religion. Mormonism is a cult, and so is Catholicism. Evangelical
and charismatic faiths are cults, and this is not arguable. At least from my vantage point.
I am not saying this with malicious intent. I am declaring it because it’s about time that
someone paints religion with one brush. That they declare openly and candidly that any
group who wants your servitude is a cult.
The bottom line is that if they use destructive group dynamics in their practices then
they will self-destruct on their own and there is nothing you can do or anyone else can
do. Cult is not a dirty word and it should not be used as a derogatory term for any
religion that is not a traditional Christian faith.
The arguments of persecution within Christianity are without merit. They are used to
create an agreed upon enemy. It has devolved into a Satan of the month club and
religious leaders are beginning to preach hatred from their pulpits. American faithful
have put their trust in these organizations because they assume that the group they
belong to can’t easily be misled.
Realize that you can lose your will if it sounds keen to the intellect.
