    Cult-Splinter Insanity

    Grace.......imo, there are MANY nefarious reasons for Rico to start a splinter group and run classes: At his age, his resume' would look like garbage to most all employers out there. Rico was a corps coordinator and long-time staffer....would have had lots of contact with recently-exited followers. Right place, right time......a shoo in for another splinter group leader to rise from the ashes. Opportunistic and aggressive.........fundamental qualities needed by any successful cult leader. The class money pays the overhead expenses......the faithful tithing/abs is the mother lode. Perks and privileges........exponential potential payoff, adulation, travel, leisure, flexibility and exploitation-longevity. Power and control over others.........perhaps someday, office staff, subordinate leaders, church building, etc. If narcissistic pathologies and power persists.........sexual predation and lavish toys will be extracted. Cults and splinter-cults grease the skids for lots of shenanigans.......tax exemption status, religious masking, access to people during vulnerable times, authoritative figure, no accountability, operating "off the grid," access to counting/reporting of money, offers to "counsel" in financial/funeral situations, etc. etc. With wierwille being Rico's "father in da verd"..........oh my, oh my!! .

    Was VPW a holocaust denier?

    They used to say that if something they taught was found to be in error they would change their teaching. Remember the time they did exactly that? Yeah, me neither

    It is watchable. I actually enjoyed it very much. Skip the original movie though: it's a slog.

    VPW based some of his assertions on information that has since been proven to be erroneous, thanks to improved DNA testing methods.

    According to twi biblically jews in the bible should be called Judeans because they were from the province of Judea. Modern day jews were descended from the Khazars and are non-Judeans and ok to call Jews. Bout as clear as mud?.....lol

    Yeah, George, I was wondering if it was interesting enough to be watchable with a family without it qualifying as a punishment for anyone. I guess that's a matter of opinion.

    vpw went through a LOT of alcohol in the average week, so I would be more surprised if he was SOBER at the time. (BTW, I ran into technical problems when I was posting links last night, so I included a link back to this thread accidentally while working around the problems. I hope nobody cares.)

    His other senses worked fine. Since the question was raised, I'd think his insignia would have a slight raising over the shirt. We have designs that are similar. The ring knows what suit to give him, so it defaults to a GL uniform, with the special instruction for him and his people to make it a bell insignia. (Interesting line of thought, I think.)

    DWBH: Had any Drambuie, or other lubricant, been flowing in the Coach when those veins popped out and you were so Righteously tossed off? HAH! LOL. Really! He did that? Hadn't heard that one. I recalled the other day, during a contemplative moment, about the underlying Nazi control system in place. RalphD was right in calling VP "Der Fuhrer" and I shudder to think how I fell in line with it as a Storm Trooper in training...10th. I also recall, and feel, that my intro to this control was in 1974ish under the authoritarian reign of a fellow I shall call K**tF , 3rd. Our WV limb guy. Anonymous enough except to DWBH and Penworks, and maybe more. We had to stand up when he entered the room out of "respect for the Word of God that is inside me." Something like that. Very close to VPW. Then, a SNS tape called, never forget it, " The Way of Life or Death." In this wonderful teaching, a good joke in there, too, that I still tell, he erupted 3/4's way through because the ushers were still allowing folks to be seated in the BRC. Five minutes of Public Humiliation on the ushers, nasty butt chewing, then on everyone pretty much, for not having the respect for the Word that he had. Then off the stage in a self- justified anger, I suppose. No closing song on the tape. NICE! So, the elements for control, like the Nazis, were there as we know. And, yes, I did read "The Thirteenth Tribe" and who cares. The Myth book and the other I believe are sold by NeoNazi groups. Hard to find in those daze without an internet, perhaps? I do think I heard him say "...he pushed it too far at the end," too. Too young and green to know what he meant.

    Fair enough. Simple. Good family values. If you need a lot of action or suspense, probably not for you. George

  18. Chris Thompson here. Anyone know or heard of Brian LeBlanc or his pal Eric Goodman from Baton Rouge, LA? Brian and I were tight. The Way .... us up. Always wanted to talk to him again. Always wondered what happened to my old girlfriend Dawn Christian as well. We almost got married. I remember her sister Heather was a zealot in the Corp. Lol.

    Anytime you have to hike 2 miles to a rest stop, then phone someone to get a ride because you were kicked off a vehicle on the highway, well, it makes an impression on you. I'm sure the memories of that day are PARTICULARLY vivid.

    Idiom of Permission

    Here is a link to an article that also looks insightful. Or at least should be considered for its content. The person makes a reference to E.W Bullinger, the English biblical article writer that wrote a book on biblical figures of speech. And yes, we today also use what could be considered figures of speech in our wording and speaking. As an example, "it is raining cats and dogs", is not literal, but simply means it is raining hard. https://overcomersharvest.wordpress.com/tag/idiom-of-permission-in-the-bible/ An article written by James K Sebastian. Someone who I do not know.

    When I hear that song, I picture Batman running around the dock with the cartoon bomb thing. The show is family-friendly. Is it worth watching?

    Name that Tune

    I thought it was a Jimi Hendrix- specific song. I also didn't know the later parts of the song, just the first verse and the tune. Of course, the correct artist was Jimi OR anyone who actually played the thing, including Billy Roberts since he was a singer and not just a writer (apparently.) The usual standard is for some kind of broadcast SOMEWHERE, but that's for the SONG, not the artist, really, and this song got/gets plenty of airplay. So, Human's turn.

    Yup Charlene! You can ask anyone in the 4th. They should ALL remember it, and I bet some do with genuine Trumpian pride. Enough said.
