I just noticed a couple of interesting comments posted under the above article on Rick's site, one by a cult member, the other by a former member. Here's the cultist's predictably pathetic response:
these may be just plot against him, set up to accuse him of some thing he didn’t do, attacks from those who do not believe in him so they could put him down. we must be unbiased and see what their teachings really got. they are still multiplying even if their head is in prison suffering right now. why? we must know, we must talk to their members and pastors
The second repeats a claim I have heard both specifically against the senior member named and against senior leadership in general by several former members I trust completely. And that this that senior members are fully aware that sex rituals are at the deep core of their "religion". Why that knowledge doesn't lead them to the obvious conclusion that the rape allegations and convictions are entirely real is a testament to the power of indoctrination and the hold this cult, and others like it, has over its members. In the words of Blaise Pascal: Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.
Yes everything is secretive even among people attending the church because they aren’t “ready” yet. Pastor Greg ..... shared with me that Joshua Jungs sexcapades are true. go figure!
The short-lived blog Greg set up in 2008 certainly carries a name that is suggestive of the cult's sexual secrets.
