Create your own cult !
As this is a very different discussion board, we shall have to play some of it by ear. However, think what you have learned about cults from the book reading, the power point lecture, and the supplemental videos. When describing your cult to the class, here are some areas that you may wish to include and talk about: What was the original intention of a particular organization later labeled a cult? What did it offer? What were its practices? Who joined and why? What does it tell us about spirituality and culture in America?
Some elements to consider as well are:
– An item/person/object/etc. of “worship”
– A hierarchical or power structure
– Costumes, uniforms, outfits, garb
