while reading mateial about the Children of God/Family of Love/The Family/The Family international, I found this bit in the Final Report on the Activities of the Children of God
Oftentimes the approach is to shanghai an unsuspecting victim.
One "convert" was physically taken from her college dormitory by two COG members. Her roommate tried to rescue her and was pushed aside.
Was the COG targeting good potential converts to brainwash or were such practices reserved to individuals already engaged with the COG?
