It all begins in high schools and local colleges where the different mixes of influence shaped the radicals. One thing I read about covert ops concerned the creation of pseudo religions in order to further water down the potency of the Church by drawing people into alternative forms of spirituality. The Bay Area is well known for it's cults , there is more to how they came into existence than some would like to believe. Just like Facebook getting money form the CIA and then Goldmac Sachs investing in it to give it the accredited backing it needed .
So what church do you speak of?
