The Cult And Cult Members

The other day I was talking with a friend and ‘cult’ was mentioned. That made me think about today’s situation. Remember Charles Manson? For those that do not, I will tell you a little about him. He was a jailbird, con man, drug user, musician, among other things. Somehow, he decided to form a cult to his liking. He had a few followers that he kept in-line with LSD and alcohol. These followers followed him everywhere and did anything and everything he wanted.

               Time went on and he killed someone. A few of the cult killed Sheron Tate and her family and tried to make it look like someone else did it to cover Charles’ murder. They did everything they could to get the onus off him. However, they were caught and after one thing led to another, Charles Manson and his cult was charged with multiple murders and other acts. This led to a very long trial.

               The, I think, nine-month trial boil down to this. The entire time the cult members, that were on trial, repeatedly said Charles did not do it, did not have anything to do with it, and did not know anything about it. Meanwhile, other members of the cult staged demonstrations outside the courthouse (they were barred from the building because they caused disruptions). During the trial Charles put a cross in the center of his brow. The cult members did the same. Next, Charles shaved his head, the cult members did the same. Charles finally was found guilty and was given the death penalty but, with the changing law, received life without parole. His cult members received the same but, a few years later, got a chance at parole but refused to renounce Charles Manson and remained in prison.

               That was only one cult out of many through my time here on earth and Trump’s cult, as far as I know, is the largest. Since he loves patting himself on the back for achievements, whether deserved or not, I will let him take this. What make this so weird is he has given them nothing to keep them close to him. Just shadow promises and many defeats. The master conman has millions of people kissing the ground he walks on, even when it is shown time after time that he is above wrong.

               Trump is like Charles Manson only Trump have not murdered anyone, nor have he given his cult LSD. He controls has cult and loves his cult members while never giving them anything. They must give their everything to him and his causes. His cult members have attempted murder, assaults, break-ins, do anything to cover for him, etc. while getting nothing in return but scorn.

               There are more cults I could talk about, but I only picked one. Trump’s cult members are filled with veneration for him and only him. I hope they do not drink kool-aid (remember Jim Jones?) that he may serve them. Some are already drinking the wrong kool-aid and it is making them certifiably loony. I personally feel sorry for anyone that is willing to stay on this runaway train that is almost out of track. Some cult members are jumping but not many.

The Cult

Cult: An instance of great veneration of a person, ideal, or thing, especially as manifested by a body of admirers.  2. The object of such devotion

Revere: To regard with respect tinged with awe; venerate

Venerate: To regard or treat with reverence; revere

As I look at the Impeachment trial and, before that, the House hearings I still say what I said before and that is, what we have here is a cult. Look at the definition and think about what is going on in Congress and at the White House. It can not be said that it is not what it is. The head of a cult does what he or she wants to do when he or she wants to do it and in whatever way he or she wants.

This cult reminds me of Jim Jones who killed all his members in Jonesville, Guyana in 1978 but he started the Peoples Temple in Indiana during the 1950s. His members were doing whatever he told them to do and in 1978 died for him willingly. Jim Jones did not like the press and tried to kill them along with his people. Jim Jones always did what he wanted to do including fathering many children with many women.

All this smells like our government, all three branches of government plus the civilian supporters. They are in a cult and do not want to see outside their large sect. If there is something or someone they do not like, they will, in some way, try to get rid of the problem. It is what the leader wants or like and the members will do their best to ensure it is so. The leader cannot do or say anything wrong. Any law he fabricates is righteous to the members because they cannot  see the fallacy in it.

At first, I was thinking that the President wanted to emulate the Russian leader or the North Korean leader or the Chinese leader or others like them, but I looked again and realized the grifter wanted a cult. At his campaign rallies, the crowds are over the top and, like most cults, they are mostly young. Like Congress they do not want to hear anything said against him. They will fight to their death.

As far as the government is concerned, it is hard to put a finger on why they admire this cult leader. Of course, the cult leader has moved his people into prime positions so that he has control over all parts of the government. Sounds like a Russian conspiracy to me. But it could just be part of the cult.

Either way, I am a person that think for myself and detest others thinking for me. That is the very reason a cult would never work for me and I cannot follow a grifter like our current President. He has his cult members, especially Congress, wrapped around his little finger. His party is naive about the ways of the grifter and is caught up in the web while listening to his canting voice.

The President now have a broad black mark on his legacy and, as I have said in my other blog      (  www.faithingodministries.net ), God will have His say and the followers will go down with him. I don’t like cults and don’t see how intelligent people can be drawn into them. How can people be like sheep being led to the slaughter? Being in a cult is only good for one person, the leader and all others are like the sheep.
