The defrauded people we trusted with our very lives and eternal destiny at one time who are still stuck inside a cult they cannot accept for what it really is.
The boondoggled and so brainwashed, so self-deceived they continue to deceive others - as they call those outside its net the "lost ones."
Who is really lost?
With the writing on the walls around them, and yet they choose to ignore the facts for basically blind faith inside a cult they refuse to accept as one.
Are they forcing themselves to stay as their family and relatives leave one by one? What makes them stay given what they must already know by now if they've been paying attention?
Being a "cultural Mormon" isn't a good enough reason IMO. That makes them liars if that's the rationale employed for staying.
I don't know whether to feel more sorry for them, or lament what I've lost with many in my family trading cult beliefs over family. Example: one of my TBM brothers who's been a real d*ck over the space of decades; he believes his misdeeds are justified in the name of everything holy. And that it will all sort itself out on the other side.
He's been brainwashed his entire life while his wife is a cultural Mormon. She pretends to go along because that's what pacifies him.
While they continue to spin their cocoons of deceitfulness within their family.
It's sad beyond words.
