Beware of the cultish churches

Dear Editor:

There is a cult movement in the religious right evangelicals ” see The Wall Street Journal, Jan. 18. I call them THEOCONS: con for conservative and con for con artists.

If a member the congregation disagrees with the pastor on even one point, the member is kicked out and, in some cases, even the police are called. Many members stay out of fear ” gee, wonder if they learned that from the Bush presidency. We have a pastor right here in Aspen who I shall refer to as El Flaco who uses this policy. People need to be aware of these dangerous churches.
