It was freaky shit man. Cult mind melt in action. Before that I looked at them as benign acid freaks. Now I know better.
I think the dead would rather just wish they dissappear. The cult probably on paper has no funds, and do it in such a way that it would be more of a headache then anything. But that's my guess. I have a hard time thinking they are not aware of a cult, about parents calling the dead up saying "my son joined a cut and I blame you" kind of yadda-yadda.
