"A cultist is
one who has a strong belief in the Bible and the Second Coming of Christ; who
frequently attends Bible studies; who has a high level of financial giving to a
Christian cause; who home schools for their children; who has accumulated
survival foods and has a strong belief in the Second Amendment; and who distrusts
Any of these may
qualify a person as a cultist but certainly more than one of these would cause
us to look at this person as a threat, and his family as being in a risk
situation that qualified for government interference."
Janet Reno, Attny.
Interview on 60
Minutes, June 26, 1994
Do you qualify? If
any of these apply to you then you are!!
This worries me.
Does it worry you?
The quotation is a
hoax. Janet Reno did not appear on 60 Minutes in 1994. No evidence can be found
that she uttered those words, not there; not anywhere. Had she actually said
them on public TV, one would logically think that there would have been a major
uproar at the time.
The quote first
apparently appeared in a newsletter of the Christian Defense League, a far
right group. The League later ran a retraction, but shit spreads.
