Religious cults in Ireland

Anyone been in one or know anyone who has? Any good stories?

I'm talking about the small ones, not the bigger ones like the papist church or their likes.

Scientology is active in Ireland (there are Scientologists on Boards), and the Moonies used to be active here too - no idea if they are still around.

I've had scienctologists(sp?) trying to recruit me for years.. Even wanted me to go to London at one stage.

Except for that,no, afraid not.

Fúcking Jahovas witnesses. Never leave the door alone. Next one that comes to the door I'll invite them in if they don't mind me polishing my rifle.


*And that they dont mind the shovel, lime and containers of amonia.

Catholicism had me for the guts of 24 years.

Funny story: This one time they tried to make me feel guilty for having sex.

The only difference between a cult and a religion is scale.

I used to be a Moonie. When I was on the school football team as a kid, we were always mooning out the back of the bus at cars behind us.

Hated science though, so I never studied scientology after the inter cert.

Hah, completely unrelated drunken story
but I remeber whe we were giving a lift to aul Hugh who used to live beside us before, and it was after some mass suicide was on the news or something and he was asking "Why in the name of jaysis would they all go and do that?"
And the aul lady says "It was some cult or something Hugh"
And he says "Well some proper cúnt is right Mary!"

Father Ted: It's not as if everyone's going to go off and join some mad religious cult just because we go off for a picnic for a couple of hours.
Father Dougal: God, Ted, I heard about those cults. Everyone dressing in black and saying our Lord's gonna come back and judge us all!
Father Ted: No... No, Dougal, that's us. That's Catholicism.
