You Know You’re in a Cult if . . .

You know you’re in a cult if your pastors connive to deploy a pseudonym on the local listserv so that when one of them is asked, “Are you Princesss Sushitushi?” he can answer, “No, I am not,” knowing that he is technically telling the truth because he is only one component of the composite personality. Christian churches call this kind of deception “lying”; the Christ Church Cult calls it “cultural warfare.”
