“Love-Bombing” Is a Common Cult-Recruitment Technique
For example, Dr. Laura appears to be going through a rough period:
''By and large, the faxes from Christians have been very loving, very supportive,'' she said. ''They'd say, 'We're praying for you.' 'We hope you can attain this because of the work you do.' 'We can see how committed you are.' 'You are doing God's work.' 'It's a shame you haven't been able to feel. ...' really supportive, nice stuff.It can be contrasted with the expulsion of a “heretic”:
From my own religion, I have either gotten nothing, which is 99 percent of it, or two of the nastiest letters I have gotten in a long time. I guess that's my point, I don't get much back. Not much warmth coming back. It's intellectual, argumentative and angry. If anything, that's all solidified me where I am.''Maybe, she should realize the dangers of doing what the Enemy wants her to do. Resistance should not be that hard. In my personal experience, I have found that the would-be inquisitors do not have very deeply-rooted opinions. On the other hand, a public personality might be deluged under a few thousand twits who argue for a brief period each.
By the way, why doesn't Dr. Laura have an e-mail address? We have to use faxes? That's like using cuneiform!
