At Fisherman's Wharf I chatted with a couple. They were about my age, and extremely pleasant.
I quickly figured out they were Moonies,. Their cult was notorious for brainwashing young people, estranging them from their families, then marrying them off in mass weddings
I had read about Divine Deception a Moonie principle that justifies lying to serve the greater purpose. I had fun saying things that I knew would be counter to their beliefs, and only getting smiles and affirmations in return.
Eventually, one said: "Hey, would you like to come to our commune?"
How could I refuse? I was 26 and invincible.
