Recruiting was called "flirty fishing" and thousands were hooked on the promise of a sexual nirvana. The cult's guru David Moses even declared sex between adults and children was natural and healthy. It's no surprise that it all went terribly wrong: those children are now adults, their lives in ruins. And earlier this year, one young man, Ricky Rodriguez, the son of the guru, set out to take his revenge, leaving behind a video about his life in the cult, naming those he planned to kill and why.

A transcript of this story will appear here on Monday, 17 October, 2005.
