It is so easy for cults to win politicians, scholars or other VIPs as supporters. Here is another example - the Moonies being supported by New Zealand's former Speaker of Parliament and Police Minister. These people have no idea how the cult looks inside, they see only what is shown to them as "guests" and believe that is enough to judge the group and ignore all the negative testimonies and facts and criticism that have been published in the past. I am quoting this, because it is so typical:
Sir Peter, 77, said he became involved with the movement soon after he left Parliament in 1999 when he was invited to attend an expenses-paid UPF conference in the United States. "I thought, 'I've heard a lot of bad things about the Moonies, I'll go and have a look,"' he said. He found them to be "a bunch of really nice people".
Haven't we seen the same in UBF (Ms.Tucker, Mr. Armstrong, Mr. Moreau etc.)?
