My fascination with cults is endless. A teacher I had in highschool once broke down in the middle of class and starting speaking in prophecy about the end of the world. Within a month she had quit class and left to live in the bomb shelters of Elizabeth Claire Prophet's cult in Montana. I always wondered who this Prophet woman was, as I saw her books all the time in bookstores. Prophet eventually got Alzheimer's and died. None of her children currently believe what they were brought up in. Sean Prophet, once vice president of the organization is now an unabashed atheist with an extraordinary blog. The initial letter on this page is fascinating.
This link will allow you to hear one of the strangest things ever to cross your ears- guaranteed. The first is Elizabeth Prophet, the second is 23 year old Sean Prophet.
The story of Elizabeth Claire Prophet is one of the most illustrative cult stories I've come across. Sean learned what I did. Took me 3 or 4 years, took him a life. Imagine what it's like to be him.
