Religion or Cult: Where is the Line?

By Joseph S. Weizenbaum

Eugene Borowitz, March 30, 1979

The danger of the cults is not what the cult members are taught to believe, but rather the process that deprives them of the ability to make decisions. The individuals who have been through a cult experience need to tell their story of redemption and need to hear it and celebrate with them the joys of responsible freedom.
