Phoenix replied to ERIC's discussion Uh oh, the Mass Exodus has already begun...
"“We know where you are. We’ve got our radar focused on you.”   This is the message of every cult, that is how they maintain control over the lives of their members. I've experienced this first hand in my own life. If…"
