Brother Drake, only one of the elders ever apologize to me. Years later I tried to contact Mel Porter (take my personality as yours, and ask which side first before blowing your nose), but had to leave a message with no call back.

Even the elder I helped with his roof, a brother I knew all the way back to Kangas in Detroit, never apologized.

I forgave the brother that apologized. I repaired his computer. He was always a good brother. He just got caught up in the Lee fever, but came to his senses. And even the elder I helped, that didn't apologize, just the fact that he got the boot for the same reasons as I was enough.

We all now think we were in a cult. You know, if it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck, then it's a duck. That's not to say that the saints aren't good and precious brothers and sisters. That's not true at all. Just like there are good people in the Mormon church, and JW's, and Scientology, et al., there are good people in Lees' personality cult.

Good people join cults. Some -- all born in them -- even grow up in them.

Maybe we can blame grown up idiots for joining and staying in cults. But we certainly can't blame those that grow up in them. They're completely innocent ... well ... until they grow up and start mixing the Kool-Aid.
