This news page is about groups, organizations or movements, which may have been called “cults” — not all groups called “cults” are harmful.
A listing on this site does not mean that we perceive a group to be a cult, practices coercive or destructive tactics, or is in violation of any law. It simply means that we have information on the group and/or has received inquiries from current and former members, their family, professionals, researchers, the media, or the general public.
Groups listed, described, or referred to on this sites may be mainstream or nonmainstream, controversial or noncontroversial, religious or nonreligious, cult or not cult, harmful or benign.
We encourage inquirers to consider a variety of opinions, negative and positive, so that inquirers can make independent and informed judgments pertinent to their particular concerns.
