    They keep that shit under wraps man. I had no idea they had so many weird compounds.

    I love how all these people who left, after 30 years, suddenly realized one day that this shit is crazy

    He obviously never read "Batlefield Earth."

    Seriously - their "main" compound in Hemet? That is kind of near me. Never even knew it existed. I was curious and looked it up on the map. Way on the outskirts of the town - heavily fortified too. Guess they don't want any of their members to escape...

    Leah was basically raised in it - so I get that part. The way they cater to Tom Cruse - blew my mind.

    Check and see if Going Clear (a movie) is on Hulu yet. Just as interesting as the mini-series.

    no religion should have tax exempt status.
    I have said that for almost six decades. Something we can agree on.

    He said "professional"...he didn't say "good". And the movie was worse, and Travolta was worse than the movie.

    I think a lot of them figure out it's crazy much sooner but it's really hard to get out.

    Their bully/smear tactics remind anyone of someone else when he is called out?
