We need a Ted Patrick who can rescue people out of the trump cult.
I didn't know he infiltrated before he started kidnapping teens and bringing them back to their parents.
Any way, I love the fact that COG accused him of kidnapping (which he totally did) but the judges kept giving him a slap in the wrist instead of sending him to jail for decades.

Makes me so annoyed that people take the Bible and twist it in so many ways to try and gain power like life is already hard enough just let people live their own lives and make their own decisions
Ted Patrick was like "Gotcha!" and Pam was like "What the Fuck!"

From Ted Patrick's wiki:
"In 1980 Patrick was paid $27,000 to carry out the deprogramming of Susan Wirth, a 35-year-old teacher living in San Francisco. He was hired by her parents, who objected to her involvement in leftist political activities. The process involved handcuffing her to a bed for two weeks and denying her food.[6][7] She was later released and after returning to San Francisco spoke out against deprogramming but declined to press legal charges against her parents or Patrick."

A problem inherent in his method is that what is considered extremist thought, is subjective. What one person sees as a cult is seen as a faith to someone else. While COG is obviously a cult, being a democrat or a republican is not.

Also much of his work involved kidnapping adults who had made their own unfortunate decisions.
I think he appears to have done a lot of good, but his methods sure are questionable from an ethical stand point.
Sounds like every religion in the world!
