Information Blog on Cults and Post-Cult Recovery


Many websites have guestbooks where visitors can leave comments about the sites. Usually, blogs do not have this option, but comments may be left after each post. Since the blogs in WordPress have some features of websites such as pages in addition to posts, I decided to make a special page for a guestbook. Although visitors can leave comments after any post or page, I think would be good to provide a special place for general comments, which are not related to any post or page specifically. Anyway, it is a kind of experiment, but I hope that visitors will like it.

Spam is not allowed. I already got many spam comments sent to this page. Fortunately, there is a good spam detector in WordPress. In addition, comment moderation is turned on, so no spam comments will be posted in the blog. Spammers just waste their time.

    I was involved in a Bible-based group, The Way International, for 28 years from 1977 through 2005. My involvement was a mix of experiences for me. I am still re-discovering myself. I still have waves of grief, but they have lessened. I still get foggy …like now..trying to relay who I am! Ha!

    I am writing often and have taken blogging to heart; I figure it’s another phase in rediscovery.

    I hope it’s o.k. that I list my blog links here Lema.

    Just came across your two blogs after searching for “Margaret Singer papers?”.
    Looks like you have done a lot of work in compiling articles etc.

    I will be having a look through your blogs over the weekend.

    I myself was involved with an abusive christian group for a few years after becoming a christian.
    Some of my family members are involved with an abusive church in the U.S. I am trying to get them to wake up. It is a long and slow process.
    Margaret Singer was involved in a legal suit against the leader of this group, but unfortunately Margaret passed away a couple of years before I began to research the group my family is involved in. I would have liked to talk to her about this leader, as I have been told that she was quite familiar with the group leader.

      Thank you for sharing your story. Margaret Singer was a very qualified expert in thought reform. She studied it for more than 50 years. She was also a very bold person and testified in many law courts against cults.

    Lema Nal,

    Have you mentioned on your blogs which group you were involved with?
    If you don’t wish to, that is okay.
