RICK ROSS, GUARDIAN JOURNALIST HAS WRITTEN THAT THE THREE SIGNS OF A CULT ARE AS FOLLOWS:
1. charismatic leader, who increasingly becomes an object of worship as the general principles that may have originally sustained the
group lose power. That is a living leader, who has no meaningful accountability and becomes the single most defining element of the group and its source of power and authority
The culmination of this process can be seen by members of the group often doing things that are not in their own best interest, but consistently in the best interest of the group and its leader.
2. A process of indoctrination or education is in use that can be seen as coercive persuasion or thought reform, commonly called “braineashing”.
3. Economic, sexual, and other exploitation of group members by the leader and the ruling coterie.
In the RCC this charismatic leader is the pope and to a smaller extent, cardinals and archbishops.
The pope has and us, often an object of veneration and worship.
Look at the millions who go to Rome and bring back the image of the Pope on pens, tea towels, tee shirts, cups, etc etc.
One pope some popes ago was issuing crucifixes with himself on it instead of Jesus.
The pope is accountable to no one and the semi divine papacy is a central defining element of RCC – ism.
“Many members of the group doing things in their own interests but in the interests of the leaders and group”.
Leaving the RCC all your property and money instead of leaving it to family and friends.
Not wearing condoms because of RCC teaching and leaving yourself open to unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases- AN ESPECIAL PROBLEM IN AFRICA.
Rejecting LGBT family and friends as “disordered”.
Living your life by ideas and beliefs not grounded in reality and science.
All of us as Catholics have been brainwashed by the RCC. I was. I cant believe now how I fell for all the brainwashing.
A PROCESS OF INDOCTRINATION
Well, on this one the RCC is certainly cult like with its insistence on having it’s own denominational schools and colleges.
Father Denis Faul often said that there was a Catholic way ot teaching everything – maths, history, geography, science etc.
And the Jesuits said: “Give me a boy of seven and he’s mine for life”.
Like many others I had RCC doctrine beaten into me by violent and sadistic “Christian” Brothers, priests and nuns.
Today in Northern Ireland RC education is run by the CCMS – a body I have seen to be cruel and unjust to teachers and kids.
The poor masses around the globe were, and are still being brainwashed by the RCC.
The RCC has always been into thought control and reform.
Phonsie in Waterford would be a thought control and reform man – even on the subject of women’s bodies!
And if you disagree with them they expel and shun you.
Do people know that there are two kinds of excommunicated persons- the “tolerati” and “vitandus” – those who can be socially tolerated and those who must be shunned absolutely.
Economic, sexual, and other exploitation of group members by the leader and the ruling coterie.
Here we really go!
Catholics handing their money over to priests and remembering them in their will?
The corrupt Vatican bank.
Bishops spending millions on their houses.
Bishops and priests:
Sexually abusing children!
Sexually abusing men!
Sexually abusing women.
Sexually abusing seminarians.
Sexually abusing nuns!
Vatican as gay mafia!
Priesthood as gay profession.
Seminaries as gay hunting grounds.
Priests and seminarians having sex on altars.
