This is terrific! So good to have someone to write about this important but challenging subject. I’d be interested to hear your take on examples of films that deal with spiritual abuse and/or cultism, which I know aren’t always related. Anyway, welcome!

Thank you Neal! And yes it’s not a popular subject 🙂
I’m not sure I have seen any films dealing with religious abuse.
Can you recommend some? Sounds interesting.
Take care,
Brien
