Confessions of an Ex-Lapdog

Misconception #1. Cults are religious zealot groups. Nope. Not all of them! There are commerical, self help, information, and political type cults which have nothing to do with religion.

Misconception #2. Intelligent, strong willed people won't get suckered in by cults. Nope again. Just like domestic violence, becoming a victim of a cult, or an abuser is more about the manipulative strategies employed by both than it is about individual intelligence or ability. However, there is a common denominator that people do come to cults at low points in their lives, usually finding the cult group fills their own unmet needs.

I believed in the above two misconceptions. It was not until after I had left the cult that I realised just how cultish it really was. Read here for more.

Confessions of an Ex-Lapdog is an anonymous blog written by moi. I used storytelling to sort through my experiences as I recovered from being a cult member. I wrote from the principal of first make people laugh, then make them think - satirical humour at its best! This blog is restricted to readers following this blog for the time being. Eventually the blog will be publicised.
