But actually I also recently watched documentaries on the Westboro Baptist Church as well as a documentary on Scientology.
The Westboro Baptist Church is a very extreme church that consists primarily of a large single family headed by a patriarch. One of the other members is actually a man who came to do a documentary on the Church and was sucked in. And before you think I'm just being mean to deeply religious people, I'll mention they protest soldiers funerals because they see it as God's will that they died. Normally, it's hyperbole to say an American hates America, these people do hate America.. They denounce it for the symbolism and worship of the flag. They travel around not trying to convert people and save them; they simply see it as their duty to inform everyone that if you aren't in their church you are going to hell.
The Most Hated Family in America Pt. 1/8
Cults are scary stuff. Throughout the Scientology documentary, the film crew is followed around by various church members. Scientology and Me. There was some recent news about people who came forward about abuse within the church. Scary stuff.
