I don't know much about this 'religion' but had a relative of a relative living on the south coast a member. She developed cancer and locked herself in her bedroom resisting all efforts to treat her. Of course the inevitable happened, how she and her family coped I have no idea, must have been awful.
Could have been Christian Scientists.

Had a friend who got involved. She was then only willing to see the world filtered through the rather ridiculous constructs of L Ron Hubbard. She too, died of cancer a few years back.

In 1960's, I had a friend who was an extraordinary talented lady. She went from being skint, to being a multi-millionaire in a period of about six months.

She gave away her entire fortune (at the time, over 6 Million) to a religious cult in India. I do not recall their name, though their members identified themselves as 'taking orange'. She adopted a name consistent with the cult, and went to live in India, so I lost touch with her.

A think this is more of a cult than a religion. Having seen a number of documentaries recently they are really very disturbing aren't they

what I found disturbing was the focus on destrying people who leave. I wonder how Tom Cruise' ex manages. And does he have a relationship with his daughter? there's a good series on Netflix about people who have left cults who talk about the brainwashing

For a few years I lived in Clearwater Fl , the Headquarters of Scientology.. It was so creepy seeing them all walking around, looking like robots... it was very unsettling to see..
