I have posted a video link at the end of this post of a morning news show with Cult Expert Steve Hassan. As the co-host on the show asked and was not answered “Are they going to be able to handle this many people?” Will they have the manpower and resources to meet these peoples needs? Needs that will be there for years to come? Where are they going to find that many specialized exit counselors and therapist and the “safe havens” needed for these people? Not to mention the food, clothing, shelter and medical needs! Who is going to pay for this? We all know they don’t have health insurance! Is Texas going to pass a bill similar to the one passed in Utah to help “The Lost Boys” ? (which by the way was a “drop in the bucket” compared to what is actually needed). Why aren’t there Federal funds for this? When will this nation realize it’s a national epidemic? A Kingdom of Cults? A world wide plague?

This is another Jonestown waiting to happen. Its ridiculous that these people think they can make their own private community with whatever rules they want. Why was something not done before? These women and children lived in that environment thinking that it was normal. Not knowing that what was being done to them was wrong. They are going to need serious help to reassimilate into the real world. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 17:56, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
My girlfriend and I both think this whole thing is BS. This whole thing. No one knows better than the mothers and their children what the conditions are like. They haven't FOUND the original complainant. This whole thing is going to lead to a massive miscarriage of justice. Are we the only ones? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 01:11, 20 April 2008 (UTC)
