F.A.C.T. Sheds Light On Cults In Universities Families Against Cult Teachings (F.A.C.T.) has launched a new initiative to help raise awareness among educators, counselors, parents and students on the misleading tactics cults use to recruit young minds. Miami, FL, 6 April 2015 — Tibor Stern established F.A.C.T. to raise awareness of the increasing number of cults on college campuses after he and his wife Hana lost their daughter to suicide. As reported by the Miami Herald (http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/broward/article1964659.html) and other news organizations, the Sterns claim the tragedy of their daughter was the result of an abusive relationship with her dance instructor at Naropa University. A lawsuit filed by the Sterns alleges that this dance instructor manipulated their daughter using mind control techniques while plying her with mind bending drugs to become his personal and sexual slave. Sharon Stern, lovingly called Sharoni by her family, graduated from the University of Miami and later, Sharon enrolled in the master of fine arts program at Naropa University in Boulder, CO. Naropa is where she was introduced to Butoh, also known as the “dance of darkness.” Butoh was being taught by Katsura Kan, a Japanese citizen and guest teacher at the Naropa University. Following Sharon’s degree from Naropa, she stayed with Kan as an assistant, and subsequently committed suicide. Later, Tibor, Sharon’s father, created the non-profit Families Against Cult Teachings to raise awareness and try to prevent tragedies like this from ever happening again. Another story investigated by the Arizona Daily Star (http://tucson.com/news/local/tucson-ministry-a-cult-former-followers-say/article_8824efc5-f210-5041-8088-a654585e4673.html), reported the existence of a cult that has operated on the University of Arizona campus for the last 25 years. Reports from former members of Faith Christian Church, the cult accused of operating on UA campus, include stories “of hitting infants with cardboard tubes to encourage submission, financial coercion, alienation from parents, public shaming of members and shunning of those who leave the church or question its leaders.”
“Anytime a group or even an individual is coercing someone away from family and friends, chances are they’re being controlled by that organization or individual.” said Mr. Allen (a volunteer spokesperson for F.A.C.T.)

Also, as TV host Bill Maher pointed out (http://www.inquisitr.com/1945356/bill-maher-calls-for-an-end-to-fraternities-a-cult-is-a-cult-and-thats-what-a-frat-is/) these cults can include fraternities as well.” stated Mr. Allen. Mr. Allen added that “The rise of cults on campus is the impetus of this campaign and aptly named Cults On Campus. We want to keep kids out of the clutches of these narcissistic persons and mind controlling organizations. We are doing this by educating college faculty and students on the techniques used by these insidious individuals to recruit vulnerable young minds into their secret lairs.” F.A.C.T. is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about cults and their recruiting methods that are prevalent on campuses across America.
