Yes, they're probably all nuts, as nutty as Falun Gong if you look at their (religions) essence, but if you forbid and marginalize one, you probably do best to do it to all...
I guess you haven't really begun to understand the difference between organised religion...paying tithe...hierarchies...and the early church-type of

I miss this distinction in your post...thus my "fear"...that you lump that altogether.
