All she did was agree to take a little personality test and look what happened.

I can't tell for sure, but Pastor Dave sounds like he still has a little Jim Jones preacher in him.

How to stay away from cults

1) Tell them You want their blo hole.
2) Tell them to give you head and then maybe you'll think about it. Then say no.
3) Tell them you follow the words and wisdom of the Large Filipino.
4) Wear a shirt with the Large Filipino on it and carry a bust of the Large Filipino and bow to the bust wherever people gather.
5) When people ask you just WTF you are doing,say that they must join you.
6) Two hours sleep is all you need.
7) Nature trail mix is all your body needs.
8) The Large Filipino will guide you to most happiness.
9) Your family will not understand so fuck them.
10) Give me money.

I avoid cults of all sorts, especially all the variants of bastardized mithraicism with an overlay of Hebraic mythology that dominate in the Western world.


Posted by Mordecai on 11-12-2006 07:28 AM:

That wouldn't be a veiled jab at the Christos mythos now would it?

Indirect, perhaps, but hardly veiled.

In other words, you aren't getting squat.

It's veiled to the majority of Christos followers, they don't have a clue who Mithras was.

Being that I have nothing better to do at the moment and being generally weird, I discovered that the link I provided above to jonestownlegacy.com now provides a link and response back to us.

Hilarity.

Whoa!! That's neat and stuff, well kinda i guess. I mean Jonestown was 30 years ago, so it's not really front page news anymore, and who is David Wise anyway? I've seen at least 2 documentaries on Jonestown and have no clue who he is, was he one of Jim Jones' sons who were off at a basketball tournament during the unfortunate "incident"? Well anyway it is still kinda neat that they noticed and even replied.

[Barbie:] “I cant tell for sure, but Pastor Dave sounds like he still has a little Jim Jones preacher in him.”



Since Pastor Dave is not a member of that discussion group, he has chosen to respond here:



Pastor Dave:

It sounds like you may be saying; “the apple does not fall far from the tree.” I left Peoples Temple because I was not an apple from that tree. I was not a bird of that feather. In fact I joined because of the good and left because of the bad. You simply cannot paint the situation with a broad over-generalizing brush. I paid a greater price than most any human you can find for going up against and for getting away from a cult. I am not a Peoples Temple apologist, these people tried to get me in trouble with the law falsely, they hunted me down, caught me a couple of times, beat me up, and claimed to have put a contract on my life. Yet, the secret to healthy mind and emotion is to pick the good and to steer away from the bad, to accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative. We must separate the wheat from the chaff, the good from the bad. If you cannot do this you may be guilty of “us-them”, or “all or nothing” cult-think. Broad-brush demonizations are even more dangerous in the larger cult of society than in smaller cults but are no less cult-like. As for me I have learned some good things from my experiences with the Peoples Temple and some good things from the larger society but I refuse to be a cult member (or leader) of either. If a madman in our society commits a murder with a sharpened toothbrush we would be foolish to all stop brushing our teeth. I refuse to stop singing because Jim Jones was a singer. I refuse to stop preaching dynamically because Jim Jones used a dynamic speaking style. A hammer has no volition or will of its own. It can be used to commit a homicide or used to build a house for the homeless. Even though a manipulative, deluded Jones walked on two legs, it is nonetheless in our best interest to persist in ambulating as bipeds. If you want to throw the baby out with the bathwater then you are using cult-think. This is not healthy. And worse, the production line for manufacturing fruitcake people seems to be running round the clock these days. It is incumbent on each of us to continue to do our best in the world and to make a positive contribution with our lives irrespective of the seemingly endless supply of mad men or women around us.



Thank you for visiting my site.

Barbie, this is your 15 mins of fame. Yeah I know it kinda sucks and you'd rather be on Oprah or something like that, but sometimes life deals you the shit end of the stick.

Wise was formerly a "sub-pastor" for lack of a better term of Jim Jones. I could be wrong, but I think I might have even met the guy at one point. One of the interesting parts of having been raised a part of a more mainstream 'cult' is that those cast out of or variously fleeing lesser cults generally end up in the more mainstream ones. I do recall meeting a former a Koresh follower, shortly after he left the cult(which was shortly before the whole thing went up in flames) though I can't offer much except that the guy seemed to be heavily sedated, or perhaps just in a state of shell-shock.
