Well alrighty then. That was a very interesting and in depth response, quite a bit more than I was looking for. In response to that, I offer this…anything in the extreme is problematic; and tends to be labeled as cultish, rightly so.
If your group — whatever the group is — cannot entertain or engage in reasonable discourse, based on facts, logic, accurate information, if it shuts down or ignores any information that refutes it’s position and worldview, it just might be a cult.
But I am glad to hear that you believe you are immune to the rampant social engineering around these issues. You have articulated a very thoughtful and reasoned response; and I accept it.
