  •  Other pyramid schemes...relationship seminars. (4+ / 0-)

    Most specifically Sterling Institute of Relationship.

    My sister did a weekend seminar and tried a couple times to get me to attend one to discover my "feminine power".  A fast Google search dug up a description of a seminar that had "brainwashing" etched all over it.  Now I find out that the whole thing is just a pyramid scheme to recruit more attendees.  Actually, the pyramid scheme is only one of the objectionable things you can discover about Sterling.

    In a way, I despise things like cell-churches and Sterling because it makes me suspicious of all churches and seminars.  I suppose my natural social shyness and love of Google make me a poor target for these things.  But it is all too easy for me to imagine someone else responding to a friend's enthusiastic urgings to come with them and see.  "You'll love it!  They are great!  It's so loving and accepting!".

    No more lies - IMPEACH!
