Hello to you, the person who is reading this! I've heard of these sorts of cults that target Therians and Otherkin and that they are a problem when they become dangerous (forcing members to cut off communication with the outside world etc.). I'm not a very spiritual or religious person and I believe the things that I can see and are proven using the scientific method so these organisations would probably never target me. Anyway, the point of this thread is to ask the people of Kinmunity for perhaps to start making a small list of identified dangerous cults. Possibly also include tips on how to recognise a dangerous cult. By the way, I have a very broad definition of 'cults'. I believe a cult to be a group or organisation that reveres or worships their founding members or ancestors. Cults have a entrap doctrine or idea that they teach and try to instill in new members. There is almost always a tithes or payment that you need to do to continue being a part of this cult. I do realise that this means that most religions and political parties are classified as cults under my definition and I want to stress that I don't think that cults by themselves are bad things,they become bad when they become dangerous to their members. A dangerous cult is a cult that starts to try and cut off communication between the cult members and the outside world, it becomes extremely hard to leave because of possible repurcussions (such as physical harm or social defamation). Anything to do with extortion is dangerous and things like that.
