Submit At Sea
Needless to say, I was horrified when I saw that three former Source Family cult members were actually going to present Father Yod and The Source Family at the recent Summit At Sea 2016 floating conference!  The sheer lunacy of inviting three former members...

Spiritual Bypassing At Its Finest
Although the term spiritual bypassing was not coined until 1984, it is a term that probably describes/sums up the entire Source Family experience better than anything else that I've found.  After intimately living with everyone who comprised the core member...

My Own Moral Outrage
Today I read an article in Harper's  titled The Ideology of Isolation where I read the following statement that I felt perfectly described Jim Baker's own attitude and belief towards the women in The Source Family cult; "The loner taketh not, nor does he gi...

Mothers and 'Suns'
Probably the most absurd and contrived pseudo-relationship that Jim Baker devised within The Source Family was that of the Mother/Sun .  Jim Baker referred to any man who joined The Brotherhood of The Source as being his 'son', but he also likened a man to ...

Copyright Infringement and 'Source Family Music'
I met with a lawyer last week who specialized in music copyright law, where I obtained the above copy of the copyright law under section 202 which applies to all of the albums that were produced at The Father House circa 1973-74; who informed me that 'posse...

Moral Authority and Wasted Years
One of the fundamental questions that people ask, after watching the documentary is, "why would anyone join a cult?"  Most people cannot understand how or why anyone would follow someone like Jim Baker and obey his directives; it is just unfathomable to mos...
